Flying with your Toki

Traveling with cannabis accessories can often feel like navigating through a maze of regulations and uncertainties, especially when it comes to air travel. For Toki enthusiasts looking to bring their favorite smoking companion on their journeys, we've compiled essential tips and advice to ensure a smooth experience flying with Toki. Whether you're jet-setting to a cannabis-friendly destination or simply want to have your Toki ready for your next adventure, here's what you need to know.


Understanding TSA Guidelines

First and foremost, it's crucial to familiarize yourself with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) guidelines regarding cannabis and cannabis-related products. While Toki itself is a legal accessory designed for tobacco or legal herbal use, understanding and respecting airport security and airline regulations is key. Really the only guideline that matters here is that TSA doesn't allow sharp objects if they are longer than 7 inches in length. The Toki is less than 7 inches so it is safe to take with you, but even still make sure to be respectful to TSA, and give smart explanations when they ask what it is.


It's also very important to remember that not all countries are as lax on cannabis and cannabis related products as the US. What we detail in this blog is focused on US flights and with dealing with TSA specifically, so some of this may not apply to other countries and their airport security and regulations. If you are travelling internationally make sure to check their guidelines and obey their laws.


Packing Your Toki

When it comes to packing Toki for your flight, discretion and cleanliness are paramount. Here's how to prepare your Toki for the journey:

Clean Thoroughly: Ensure your Toki is spotless before packing. Residue from use can raise questions during security screenings, so a clean Toki is a hassle-free Toki. Check our cleaning blog to see how to best clean the Toki.

Carry-On or Checked: While you can pack your Toki in either your carry-on or checked luggage, keeping it in your checked luggage is a safer and less stressful way to bring your Toki with you. Either way it is safe to put it in your carry-on, and I've found that putting it deep in my carry-on often has it pass through the x-ray without them taking my bag. However, always consider the airline's policy and the legal status of cannabis at your destination.


At the Security Checkpoint

Be prepared for potential questions from TSA agents. Here are a few tips for handling security like a pro:

Stay Calm and Polite: Remember, there is nothing wrong or illegal about bringing a Toki with you on your US flight. If asked about your Toki, calmly explain that it's a tobacco or herbal smoking accessory. Being polite and cooperative goes a long way.

Know how to describe it: Always describe the Toki as a tobacco tool, portable hookah, or something similar that omits the focus on cannabis. 

Know Your Rights and Regulations: While you should comply with all security requests, knowing your rights and the regulations can help you navigate any misunderstandings confidently. The Toki counts as a sharp tool, so if they push you on it, you can say that it is a sharp tool under 7 inches in length which complies with TSA guidelines.


Destination Considerations

Before you travel, research the legal status of cannabis at your destination, even if you only intend to use Toki for legal herbs or tobacco. Laws vary widely from one place to another, and being informed can help you avoid unintended legal issues. Even drug paraphernalia can be illegal in some (wack) countries, so always be vigilant and check.


Why Travel with Toki?

Toki's portability and versatility make it an ideal travel companion for those who appreciate the ritual of smoking, even on the go. Its discreet design and ease of use allow you to enjoy your moment of relaxation, wherever your travels may take you. Pretty much anywhere you go there will be water bottles, fruits, and many other things to turn into smoking devices. If you love smoking flower, this product is the perfect thing to travel with.


Final Thoughts

Traveling with Toki can be a breeze with a little preparation and knowledge. By following these tips, you can ensure that your Toki is ready for takeoff as much as you are. So, pack your bags, your Toki, and set off on your next adventure with confidence.

Remember, the key to a hassle-free journey with Toki is respecting the laws and regulations of both the departure and destination locations. Safe travels, and enjoy the journey with Toki by your side.
