5 pretty awesome things TSA allows you to take on a plane… including CBD.

We’ve all been there. You get to the airport ready to go through security and all of a sudden you remember a questionable item or two in your bag. Your palms get sweaty and mind starts racing: “Will TSA allow me on the plane? Am I going to get in trouble? Will I be thrown in an underground room with a single chair and a one way mirror?

Here are 5 things that you CAN bring through TSA:


#1 CBD 

In May 2019, the Transportation Security Administration changed its cannabis policy to adhere to passengers traveling with federally legal CBD. Now what is federally legal CBD? According to the the 2018 Farm Bill it is CBD that contains less than 0.3% of THC. For brands like ChangeByDay this means you are allowed to carry on your daily CBD necessities domestically in the United States.

The TSA’s new change doesn’t allow other forms of cannabis that contain more than 0.3% of THC. If you do have a marijuana classified product, use those sweaty palms to make a Houdini trick before the screening agents refer you to law enforcement.


#2 Harry Potter Wand

Whether you are on your way to Hogwarts or Universal Studios, you don’t have to go through platform 9 3/4 just to transport your Harry Potter wand. TSA specifically lists this as an item you can bring on flights.

#3 Lobsters

Like your seafood fresh? Or maybe you have a pet lobster named Red you need to bring to your family reunion. Regardless of the reason why, live Lobsters may be brought on your flight if sealed in a clear, plastic, spill proof container.

#4 Christmas Trees

Where are all the passengers who sing Christmas carols in October? Good news: you can also bring your Christmas tree on the plane. Yes, that is correct, an entire Christmas tree.

#5 Waffle Iron

Everyone loves a good hotel waffle. With TSA loving waffles too it looks like you can bring your own waffle iron on board.


Whether you are trying to transport a live lobster, have a waffle cook off, or wanting to take your daily CBD with you everywhere you go; TSA will allow you to pass through the security gate with peace of mind.
