Can I use CBD for travel?

CBD For Travel

If you’re a bit of an anxious flyer, you have probably asked already if CBD can help with your in-flight jitters. If you’re a frequent flyer who is used to the many frustrations that come with airports: The delays, those random flight cancellations, crazy airport crowds, endless security checks and rechecks, and all of the other little things that make modern air travel an ordeal–you too have probably wondered if there is a better way to manage it. If you’re anything like me, and the combination of these two situations is the main reason you avoid airports like the plague, then read on, dear friend; we have much to discuss about how Soulsome CBD is a great companion for vacation travel.  

Before we begin, you should be aware that we recently published a primer on traveling by air with your favorite CBD oil in our Soulsome CBD101 guide. In the article, we took a deep dive into traveling both domestically and internationally with CBD, the TSA rules, and the general do’s and don’ts of using CBD for travel. So, if you’re interested in flying with CBD in your luggage, this would be a helpful place to start.

CBD for travel

The best part about travel is that it bumps us out of our comfort zones and has us handling life on its own terms. However, this isn’t always beer and skittles, as travel can be quite an anxiety-provoking experience for some. It is not uncommon for us to be anxious about flying or about a road trip, especially as the airports and highways start to fill up around vacation time. 

Even if you never have to use it, you have to admit that there is a certain peace of mind to having “Plans-C-B and D” in your duffel should the occasion ever call for it.

With everything you need to remember, keeping track of bags, tickets, maps, passports, permits, destinations, and a thousand and three “are we there yet’s” can be more than a little frustrating and even a little anxiety-provoking. If you are leaving your routine behind and welcoming the discomfort of leaving your comfort zone, Soulsome’s cold-pressed, raw hemp flower CBD oil may be your ace in the hole for helping you manage the ups and downs of, as Tom Petty put it, “The great wide open.”

Plans C, B and D

Being on the road, the rails, or in the air for a vacation can also remind you about physical aches and pains you forgot about in the comfort of your comfort zone. That tight back, those sore muscles, or perhaps that old sports injury can suddenly come calling for attention at a time when you’d least expect it. Getting out of your comfort zone often means doing things that aren’t part of your daily routine, lifting heavy bags, sitting for long periods behind a steering wheel, sleeping on an unfamiliar (or worse, an unsupportive) mattress. Using CBD for travel, or better yet, having a bottle of Soulsome’s hemp oil CBD handy at times like this may help alleviate some of the obvious strains of vacationing and help you get the most out of your holiday. Even if you never have to use it, you have to admit that there is a certain peace of mind to having “Plans-C-B and D” in your duffel should the occasion ever call for it.

How about the experience of sleeping in an unfamiliar bed, in an unfamiliar location with strange sounds at night? It’s funny how little things can trip us up, interfering with our normal sleep patterns while on vacation. Soulsome’s cold-pressed CBD oil can come in handy when the unfamiliarity of a place, mixed with the anxious hypervigilance of hours on the road–or even a touch of jetlag–has jangled our normal sleep patterns and brought on a long night-time session of ceiling inspecting.

Rules of the road and CBD

One thing to be mindful of is that although California doesn’t currently have hard and fast laws about driving under the influence of CBD, you can still be pulled over for committing a moving violation. It is always best to be mindful of your use of CBD for travel and the local laws and requirements for driving and CBD use. Remember to be safe on the roads and ensure the safety of your travel party, as well as that of others–it’s the right thing to do. Check the state regulations regarding CBD use when you plan to travel, and be sure to comply with local legislation for an incident-free, safe and enjoyable vacay.
