Traveling with HHC products can be a confusing and daunting process, especially given the patchwork of state and federal laws surrounding other cannabinoids, especially THC. However, with a little bit of research and preparation, you can travel with your favorite HHC products without running afoul of the law.  Note: we are not advising you to travel with any cannabis related products, you are doing this at your own risk.

In this post, we'll discuss the legal status of HHC products, provide tips for safely transporting them, and explain how to deal with airport security to avoid getting in trouble.


The legality of flying with HHC products


The legality of flying with HHC products depends on a number of factors, including the laws of your departure and destination locations, the amount and type of product you're carrying, and your mode of transportation.

HHC is federally legal and legal in many states following the Farm Act. Still, each state can pass similar laws and recategorize substances at the state level. Different states have different laws and penalties for HHC and its possession, so it's important to research the regulations of your destination to make sure you're not breaking any local laws.

Tips for flying with HHC products


If you're planning to fly with HHC products, there are a few things you should keep in mind. 


First, keep in mind that the TSA may confuse your HHC product for THC. To avoid this, be sure to clearly label your product and include any documentation that you have. This will help make it clear that your item is HHC-based.


What’s more, different types of products require different storage and transportation methods. For vapes, you must ensure that all e-liquid is properly stored in bottles 3.4 ounces or less and placed into a single, see-through, quart-sized bag. Furthermore, batteries must be removed from the device before packing it for air travel. Additionally, refillable tanks must be emptied prior to packing. Make sure to keep all this in mind when packing your HHC products for a flight. 


Edibles should be packed in a separate bag to avoid confusion with other snacks. Additionally, it's important to transport HHC products in a discreet and unobtrusive way. This could mean packing them in your checked luggage or using specialized odor-proof containers to mask the scent. 


Finally, you should consider the risks and benefits of carrying HHC products through the airport, is it worth the hassle? If buying the products where you are going is an option, maybe keep that in mind.


Dealing with TSA and Airport Security


If you're flying with HHC products, you will need to pass through TSA and airport security checkpoints. While the TSA's official policy is to focus on security threats rather than drugs, they are required to report any illegal activity to law enforcement. This means that during routine TSA checks, depending on the local laws and regulations, TSA could find your HHC vape or edibles and confiscate it, escalate it to higher authorities, or at least take a closer look to make sure it complies with the local laws. 


In conclusion, traveling with HHC products can be a tricky process. However, by doing your research and following a few basic guidelines, you can minimize your risks and travel with your favorite HHC products without running into trouble with the law. Remember to check the laws of your departure and destination locations. Ultimately, the key to traveling with weed products is to be informed, prepared, and up-to-date on the latest laws and regulations in your state and destination.

 Should I Hide My HHC When I Fly?

 No, we do not advise that you try to hide your HHC. The TSA's primary concern is with items that pose a threat to the safety of the flight, rather than HHC specifically. Keeping this in mind, it's best to keep your HHC in plain sight rather than hiding it in unconventional places. The most successful strategy is to not deviate from the truth. Stay honest and keep your HHC with your other travel items.
