Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract-Infused Dog Chews smell fresh and meaty upon first opening the bag. Dog owners will appreciate how natural the scent is – nothing feels artificial about them, so you can feel good giving them to your furry friends.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
These treats are chicken flavored, using chicken liver hydrolysate for flavor as well as other natural ingredients. Our testers gave this product to two picky dogs, and both gobbled them up in one satisfied bite.
All ingredients on the bag are readable and recognizable, so you can be sure there are no strange chemicals or other additives that shouldn’t be given to dogs anywhere in the chews.
These dog chews are exactly that – chewy and squishy. Dogs under 25 lbs are instructed to be fed just one-half of a treat, which is made easy due to how easily these treats can be cut in half while still remaining their overall shape.
While they can be crumbly upon cutting or tearing them into pieces, they make for a good, overall mess-free way to give your pet a tasty reward.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Like humans, dogs also have an endocannabinoid system that interacts with phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids, the naturally occurring chemical compounds in hemp that are loaded with medicinal benefits (such as CBD), bind to receptors in the dog’s body after being ingested and metabolized. It depends on the dog’s size, but effects from edibles are typically felt within 30 minutes to one hour. At such a low dose (2.5 mg CBD per chew), effects will be noticeable but not too strong for your furry friend.
These Calming chews also come with Valerian root, passion flower, and chamomile to promote calmness. Valerian root improves the stress response and helps to stabilize moods. Passion flower is known to support mood and temperament in dogs, and chamomile is a natural muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory agent. These ingredients combined make for the perfect, all natural, dog friendly calming agent for any nervous pup.
Best used for
This specialized formula of natural calming ingredients is great for any occasion that might make a dog extra stressed. Whether it be travel, separation, moving to a new house, fireworks, or more, prepare for the situation by giving your pet the recommended dose some time before the event.
If you have a restless dog who just can’t settle down at bedtime, try giving him a treat. Not only are they a tasty snack, but they’re also super useful for any adult dog who needs some help relaxing.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
Charlotte’s Web makes a few other dog-friendly CBD products, including their Cognition Chews and Hemp Extract Oil for Calming + Hip & Joint. Using all three together as necessary results in a daily regimen that dogs love and owners feel good about.
Although it’s impossible to overdose on CBD, you do want to be mindful about how much you give your dog (and how many treats she’s getting per day). While it may be suitable to give a 100 lb dog multiple Cognition and Calming Chews every day, be sure to follow instructions on the packaging and to limit the number of chews given to smaller animals.
Charlotte’s Web Dog Chews retail at $19.99 for a pack of 30 treats, making each chew about $0.67. With 2.5 mg of CBD in each treat, this equals to about $0.27 per mg. This is half the price of Joy Organics dog treats, which are $40 for a 30 pack, or about $1.33 per treat. And Joy Organics treats come with slightly less CBD, at about 2 mg per treat.
With Charlotte’s Web treats, you get a specially designed formula to further aid in calming your dog at a very decent market price.
Charlotte’s Web Dog Chews stand out from the competition for several reasons. First, they have the added natural calming ingredients of Valerian root, passion flower, and chamomile. Second, Charlotte’s Web as a company strives for greatness and top-notch hemp.
They have a seal of approval from the U.S. Hemp Authority, and their products are non-GMO and subject to rigorous testing. Hemp plants are tended by hand and soil and water quality are constantly tested.
Charlotte’s Web tests their hemp every five days while harvesting to make sure every plant meets their strict consistency guidelines and quality standards. Their manufacturing facility is FDA-regulated as well, so you can be certain you’re giving your pup nothing but the best.
