Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
As soon as you open the resealable Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract-Infused Dog Chews for Cognition bag, you’re hit with a meaty scent that’s nothing short of appetizing for your canines. They smell fresh and natural rather than processed and artificial, like some dog treats tend to.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
The chews are labeled as being chicken flavored, which derives from the chicken liver hydrolysate added to them. We tested these treats on Rocco, a two-year-old Shih Tzu who is notorious for being a picky eater.
Unlike other chews, which he frequently spits up or hesitates to eat, Rocco downed the Charlotte’s Web Dog Chews in one bite every time.
All ingredients listed on the bag are recognizable and natural, making them chews that humans and dogs alike can feel good about.
These treats live up to expectations. They’re chewy and somewhat spongy, but still solid enough that they maintain their shape even after being cut in half. They are somewhat crummy, which only adds to their feeling of being all natural.
The chews are also nice and soft, making them a great reward for aging dogs whose teeth aren’t quite as strong as they used to be.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Cognition Chews are loaded with natural ingredients designed to support brain health and function, as well as overall dog health. Elderberry powder is added for their ability to reduce stress and support a healthy brain. DHA and EPA are omega-3 fatty acids which help support brain development, nervous system health, healthy joints, and more. Vitamin E is also known for its antioxidant capabilities and its ability to help protect the brain during aging.
And of course, the broad spectrum hemp extract is loaded with phytocannabinoids, the naturally occurring chemical compounds in hemp that are loaded with medicinal benefits (such as CBD).
These treats were especially useful for our tester Rocco, since he has been learning new tricks and could use the extra brain power. As with all edibles, effects are typically noticeable after about 45 minutes and last for a few hours, so plan ahead when giving them to your pup.
Because of the purpose of these treats (to support brain health, manage stress, and support overall dog health in general), it is best to incorporate them into your everyday routine. Follow the dosing instructions based on your dog’s weight for optimal results.
Best used for
Because of the special formula behind these Cognition Chews, these treats are best used for maintaining your pooch’s overall brain health and cognitive function. They help with relaxation and alertness as well, promoting general wellness when given as instructed.
These chews are especially helpful when your dog needs a little boost of focus – whether being introduced to new activities, or if there are lots of distractions around, or just before training sessions, these treats are great for everyday use as well as for specific moments that require extra brain power.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
The Calming Chews were a great way to end the day, offering an all-natural solution to manage daily stress and help your dog wind down for bedtime. The Hemp Extract Oil was particularly useful before bouts of exercise or going on walks, thanks to the oil’s ability to help support healthy hips and joints.
Carefully monitor the CBD your dog intakes every day. Larger dogs require higher doses to feel the full effects, while smaller dogs, like Rocco, only need a few milligrams to get the best results.
A bag of 30 Charlotte’s Web Dog Chews sells for $19.99, or about $0.67 per chew. Each chew has 2.5 mg of CBD, breaking down to about $0.27 per mg. Compared with Joy Organics Dog Treats, which sell at $40 for 30 treats, these chews are half the price – and with half a milligram more of CBD in each chew.
Charlotte’s Web treats also come with a specially designed formula for cognition and overall dog health, making them a purposeful purchase at a great price.
As a company, Charlotte’s Web holds itself to the highest quality standards. They test their hemp every five days during harvesting and have strict consistency guidelines that they must follow.
Their manufacturing facility is FDA-regulated, and water and soil is also tested to ensure quality. Charlotte’s Web has a seal of approval from the US Hemp Authority and all products are non-GMO.
These Dog Chews stand out from other CBD-infused dog treats for their natural ingredients. The special formula of elderberry powder, DHA, EPA, vitamin E, and broad spectrum hemp extract makes these treats a thoughtful, guilt-free way to ensure your furry friend is getting the best brain health support on the market.
