All forms of marijuana were previously prohibited in both checked and carry-on luggage.

Some CBD products will now be allowed on flights, the Transportation Security Administration said.

The agency's new policy follows the introduction of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp - a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants.

TSA said as long as travelers have CBD in forms that adhere to the regulations in the Farm Bill, it will permit these on airplanes.

The new regulations allow FDA-approved medical marijuana and products that contain hemp-derived CBD oil. In June 2018, the FDA approved Epidolex, the first medication to contain "a purified drug substance derived from marijuana". Even though CBD is not legal under federal law, the TSA, a federal agency, is trying to change with the times, updating its "What Can I bring?" guidance to address the changing drug rules.

E-cigarette flavourings increase risk of heart attack, study warns
USA public health officials are alarmed by an explosion of underage vaping, but Dr Wu said it's not just a question for teens. Until now, we had no data about how these e-liquids affect human endothelial cells.

According to FoxNews.com, TSA officials revealed they were made aware of a medication prescribed for pediatric epilepsy that contains CBD, which was approved by the FDA. "To avoid confusion as to whether families can travel with this drug, TSA immediately updated TSA.gov once we became aware of the issue". Marijuana remains federally illegal, said the TSA.

Possession of other forms of marijuana- and cannabis-infused products is illegal under federal law and the TSA's website notes its officers are required to report any suspected violations of law.

Many medical cannabis patients rely on cannabis products containing Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for relief of pain, nausea, anorexia, spasticity, seizures and other symptoms.

And since at least one of the most popular field tests used by authorities can't tell the difference between CBD and THC products, we're guessing that flying with them is still a bit risky.
