Laws Around Mailing Weed Edibles

It is illegal to mail edibles within the US, regardless of where you are sending from or to. This is because marijuana is still a controlled substance at the federal level, and the USPS is a federal organization. The same is true for any products containing marijuana or THC, such as vape cartridges, oils, resin, flower, and so on. Now, just to make it super clear, a few examples.

For this example, say we want to mail weed edibles from Alabama to Washington. This would be illegal.

For this example, say we now want to mail weed edibles from Washington to Alabama. This would be illegal. And, this would be illegal regardless of how many “illegal states” the package would have to go through. If you mailed edibles from Colorado to Wyoming, two bordering states, this would still be illegal.

For this example, say we want to mail weed edibles from Los Angeles to San Francisco. This would still be illegal, even if the package never leaves California.

Mailing Edibles within an Illegal State

Hopefully this one goes without saying, but this is also illegal.

The ONLY exception to the above is products made from hemp or CBD oil. But, to legally mail these products you will need:

  • a license to produce industrial hemp
  • the THC content of the product/s to be no greater than 0.3%

You can find out more details around these requirements from the USPS website.

Mail Edibles Through Private Companies

A lot of people think that mailing marijuana or related products through UPS, DHL, FedEx, or any other private mail company is a smarter alternative. It is not.

In fact, because these are private companies, they can all legally open up any parcel or piece of mail they want, without a warrant. If mailing through the USPS, because it’s a federal agency, they are legally required to acquire a search warrant. A search warrant can be obtained from the smell of weed coming from a package, or other suspicions.

Even though the USPS can easily obtain a search warrant for a package, they are still often the preferred method for people mailing cannabis and its derivatives within the United States.
