CBD American Shaman Doggy Chews, sourced from non-organic U.S. hemp, display significant shortcomings in their CBD content and overall quality. The latest lab report from April 18, 2019, reveals a mere 2.39mg of CBD per 5mg treat, devoid of any additional cannabinoids. This lack of diversity in cannabinoids falls well below the 1.5 additional cannabinoids average found in other CBD dog treats across 30+ brands, with an additional cannabinoid content of 0%, significantly less than the 7% average.
The age of the lab report is a major concern, emphasizing the need for more current and comprehensive testing. Furthermore, the absence of tests for heavy metals, pesticides, microbials, residual solvents, and other toxins in these chews is troubling. Notably, a related product, CBD American Shaman’s Soft Tender Doggy Chews, showed concerning levels of arsenic at 206ppm, surpassing the 200ppm action level, which raises red flags about the overall safety and quality of their products.
The chews are formulated with natural peanut butter flavor, milk, coconut flour, white rice flour, eggs, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon, vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, polysorbate 80, and various hemp extracts and terpenes. Available in Peanut Butter, Turkey Stuffing, or Beef Brisket flavors, the package contains 70 chews with 5mg of CBD each.
Despite their relatively low price of $0.13 per mg of CBD, the significant concerns about CBD content, lack of additional beneficial cannabinoids, outdated lab report, and potential safety issues related to toxin levels make CBD American Shaman Doggy Chews a product we cannot recommend. Pet owners are advised to seek out more reliable and transparently tested CBD dog treat options.
