Most CBD products will prominently display their cannabinoid content. Additionally, they will usually point out the fact that their product is under the legal threshold for THC content.

In most cases, CBD oil is safe to carry within Europe as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC. While this exact threshold may differ from country to country, 0.2% is low enough to be safe in most locations. But how can you know for sure if your CBD products contain less than 0.2% THC?

Given the distinction in guidelines between hemp-derived and marijuana-derived CBD, it is highly advisable to bring proof that what you are travelling with is the former. Reputable producers of CBD will have their products third-party tested to ensure the ratio of cannabinoids is correct.

The Cannabis Act, legalizing and regulating cannabis (marijuana), creates a strict legal framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis in Canada.

If you are entering Canada from another country, remember: if you have cannabis with you in any form, you must declare it to the Canada Border Services Agency. Not declaring cannabis in your possession at the Canadian border could also lead to arrest and prosecution.

Only Health Canada retains the authority to issue permits or grant exemptions to import or export cannabis. They do so under very limited circumstances and for limited purposes: medical, scientific or industrial hemp. For importers with the Health Canada granted authority, please refer to Customs Notice 18-19 on calculating cannabis duty.
