The dark shadow of COVID-19 has finally lifted — at least, in part. Families around the country are gearing up for road trips, and that means:
- Flat tires
- Pit stops
- Rest areas
- Unexpected friends
- Expected friends
- Exciting occasions
- Total exhaustion
What you might not know is that CBD flower is the perfect thing to reach for in each of these occasions. You’ll believe us after we tell the story of a road trip very like one you may be planning for the next few months.
1. Accidents happen
It doesn’t have to bend fenders to be an on-the-road mishap. Upchucked stomachs, blown-out tires, or unexpected pit stops have a way of stressing everyone out, and if there’s one place CBD shines, it’s in a stressful situation.
Take a moment. Find a shady place to pull over, and retrieve your stash of Secret Nature products from where you securely stowed them during transit. If there are other adults with you, share and share alike.
Even if you’re the only grown-up among a sea of children, take a brief moment of repose to get your head right before you renew your commitment to the open road. You won’t be intoxicated, but you might wind up relaxed enough to take the day’s remaining challenges in stride.
2. Even you will wonder…
Are we there yet? It might be belted at you from the backseat, but you’ll also feel the need for a break in your legs, feet, and back.
Pull off at a rest area, find a secluded spot, and light up. For more discreet public usage, try a vape pen. Whichever way you do it, make hemp part of your daily unwind while you’re on the road, and you’ll get to each nightly destination before you know it.
3. You’ll want something to share
You never know when you might find friends on the road. No stranger to random beer sessions around campground fires with strangers, you want something new to share with new friends you meet this summer.
Hemp flower isn’t exactly unknown anymore, but it’s still unusual enough to instantly make you the center of interest. We realize you aren’t an egotist — you’re sharing hemp for good reasons. The cool-guy allure you exude will help others realize how much hemp flower has helped you: Pay it forward.
4. You’ll need something to unwind once you get there
Every road has a destination, and every day has an end. Even if your journey isn’t quite over, you’ve at least won the battle — it’s time to enjoy the spoils.
Your days on the road might be a bit too hectic to take full advantage of the CBD flower stash you secreted away during the final moments of pre-dawn packing frenzy. Now that the sunset has painted the horizon red, though, your glowing orange coal will fit right in, and the smoke wafting from your car will blend with the woodsmoke that somehow manages to permeate every single summer evening.
5. You could center the celebration
You’re camping. There’s booze, and there’s probably green stuff of the other kind as well. Those who opt out can have something non-intoxicating to smoke, and those who revel can take their Bacchanalia to the next level with something hitherto unknown.
CBD isn’t “watered-down THC” or “weed that doesn’t get you high.” It’s something entirely new, something the world has never seen before. Then again, CBG is also a new world unto itself, and so are CBN, delta 8, and CBC — just to name a few.
Introduce yourself and those around you to new vistas of plant-based medicine that could only have become possible in our impossibly conflicted 21st century. Remark upon the inherent paradoxes involved as you enjoy the fruits of more than two decades of successful cannabis activism.
6. You should leave something to remember
The last embers of the campfire are dying. Trucks and campers are pulling away, and a sense of melancholy wafts through the clearing where smoke hung thick the night before.
What better way to commemorate the scene than with a relaxing hemp smoke before you go? Catch any last stragglers on their way out, flag them down, and share the peace pipe. It might be a long while before you come this way again, so close out with a memory that stays fresh and sharp.
7. The road home will be long
It may seem like your journey just began, but it is now drawing to a close. Though most of the excitement is now behind you, there’s still a long road back to the familiar comforts of home.
Make sure you have stocked enough CBD flower for the return voyage. Revisit places you stopped along the way, or take a gander at a few new locations before you reach your own front door. Leave nothing but clouds of organic hemp smoke in your path as you take the long and winding road.
CBD travel checklist
Too excited to sleep? Or, are you already exhausted? Either way, a summer filled with adventure brims on the horizon, so let's run through a few important details before going separate ways:
• Is traveling with CBD illegal?
No, even the TSA has long-since admitted defeat over travel with CBD. There aren’t any federal regulations specifically prohibiting interstate travel with CBD, but state-specific regulations and laws vary.
• Can you travel with CBD in 2021?
Yes, interstate travel with CBD products shouldn’t be problematic in 2021. Remember, though, that sentiment toward Cannabis sativa in general varies from state to state. In some places, breaking out CBD-rich hemp flower with less than 0.3% THC might not be viewed much differently from smoking weed.
• Can you travel with CBD internationally?
That depends on the destination, but usually the answer is “no.” Special exceptions might be short excursions over the Canadian border. It’s up to you whether or not you declare it, eh?
• Can you smoke CBD flower in the car?
We wouldn’t if we were you. Federal law is unclear regarding the legality of smoking CBD while driving, but there’s a considerable chance your harmless ingestion of a non-intoxicating substance will be incorrectly misconstrued with the use of an illegal drug.
Just to be on the safe side, we would recommend bringing your car to a full stop, cutting the engine, and enjoying your stashed Secret Nature CBD flower somewhere secluded. You have nothing to hide, but there’s no reason to go looking for trouble either.
• Can I get CBD flower shipped to me on the road?
Certainly. We use USPS at Secret Nature and can ship anywhere in the United States. Here are a few pro CBD travel tips to use if you decide to ship to your destination:
- If you are staying at an RV park, make sure to clear your shipment with the owners ahead of time.
- If you are staying at a campground, consider having your package shipped to the nearest post office for pickup.
- If you are staying at a major chain hotel, check online for policies regarding guest shipments.
- If you are staying with friends and family, just make sure they know you aren’t having weed shipped to their house.
