R&R CBD Dog Chews Review 2024: Our Expert’s Opinion

PK_SAPR_RR Meds CBD Dog Chews

Our Final Verdict

We give R&R CBD a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Quality: 5/5
Variety: 3/5
Ingredients: 5/5
Value: 5/5

As pet owners, we spend our lives with them, ensuring our furry friends are well cared for, fed great diets, and have fun toys. They quickly become an integral part of our families.

What was chalked up to “bad behavior” in the past, like bolting at the first sign of thunder, chewing through the garbage when left alone, or whining in the car, is now considered a dog’s version of anxiety.

R&R CBD chews are designed to alleviate some of our pups’ unnecessary stress.

Their pet chews are designed using a full-spectrum approach. This means each chew is filled with more than just a single cannabinoid (usually CBD) and encompasses a wide range of naturally occurring cannabinoids.

After years of fetch at the park, swimming at the beach, and countless car rides, a dog’s mobility can be impacted by old age. Sore muscles and joints, as well as potentially a loss of hearing and eyesight, can all affect a dog’s behavior.

For example, a dog (like Winnie) who has loved to fetch all her life, may actively avoid the game, knowing it causes her pain. R&R CBD chews can help ease the pain of achy joints.

About R&R

R&R CBD

R&R was founded in 2017, with their primary headquarters in Denver, Colorado. With R&R’s natural approach to full-spectrum and broad-spectrum blends, you’ll not be surprised to learn all of their hemp is sourced from Colorado, using only outdoor grown and organic sources.

R&R states that they’re employee-owned, which “fosters alignment in their company’s direction.” No investors putting profit above quality here!

Speaking of employees, R&R is a veteran, minority, and LGBT-owned and operated company that started with human products and now, lucky for us, provides the same top-quality chews to our pets.

R&R’s chews are made specifically for dogs (though their tincture is available if you’re interested in something for your furry friend of a different species).

Would my dog benefit from a CBD chew, you ask? Probably. If your dog exhibits any kind of separation anxiety, vehicle anxiety, on-leash issues, achy joints, or sore muscles…  the calming effects of CBD may help. R&R’s CBD chews can help with short-term issues, too, like a dog who has strained a tendon and needs a minimally painful recovery period.

Overview

R&R CBD

Shipping, Returns, and Delivery

When you order R&R CBD Chews, you’re offered free shipping in the US on orders over $60. International shipping is available at checkout.

If you’re unhappy with the product, R&R offers a 60-day Money-Back Guarantee. However, they really want to help you (and your pooch) find relief, so they encourage you to reach out for a better solution or possibly an alternative product (at no extra charge).

The small containers easily fit in a regular mailbox, so you can expect them to be delivered without hassle.

What to Expect

After you’ve received the CBD chews, the best course of action is to read the recommendations. The amount of chews a dog is allowed at one time varies based on weight, much like any other medication your pup may be prescribed.

How to Feed

The most important part of feeding these chews to your pet is having their accurate weight information. After that, R&R recommends consistently feeding at least one chew daily to see the best results.

I found it easier to feed one chew by hand per day, and if your dog is above 25 pounds, two may be fed by hand at that time. Due to the CBD component, we prefer to feed (and know the dog has eaten it) instead of accidentally missing it in her bowl and giving her more than recommended.

Ingredients

The ingredients are listed plainly on the back of the container. Because chicken is the main ingredient, the chews may not be suitable for dogs with chicken allergies.

  • Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (5mg per chew)
  • Carrot powder
  • Chicken
  • Chicken liver
  • Flaxseed meal
  • Glycerin (Vegetable)
  • Industrial hemp extract
  • MCT oil
  • Organic palm fruit oil
  • Sorbic acid

Quality

As discussed above, R&R’s product quality is high. To prove they take quality seriously, they conduct Hemp Quality Assurance Testing on each batch of CBD chews.

The quality of the containers and chews is one thing, but the quality of customer care this company can provide is another. With easy access to brand professionals who want to assist you in finding the perfect product and dosage, they make this company stand out among pet supplement brands.

Ingredients

R&R’s CBD dog chews are full of a few simple ingredients.

This is especially helpful for those with dogs who have allergies. Suppose you’ve picked up generic dog food lately. You may have read dozens of questionable ingredients, and it’s easy to be unsure which causes the hot spots, itchy paws, or red ears. But have no fear—R&R’s easy-to-read ingredient list takes the guesswork out of what’s in your pup’s treat.

Variety

The CBD chews are made with chicken; if you have a chicken-loving pup, you can bet they’ll say woof! However, if your dog shows any signs of a chicken allergy or has been tested and confirmed, these treats aren’t for you. But! All hope is not lost. R&R also makes an Organic Full Spectrum tincture that mimics the chews – without chicken as an ingredient.

The chews are admittedly easier to feed, so we will keep our fingers crossed for a beef option in the future!

Is R&R CBD Dog Chews a Good Value?

R&R CBD

In our opinion, yes. R&R combines their love of cannabinoids with their love of canines to offer you a chew that helps your beloved pet safely benefit from the power of hemp. They do this without a high price tag or a lower price with lower-quality ingredients.

Joint and mobility health is vital for our four-legged friends, but alternative options like carprofen injections, physical therapy, walking aids, or surgeries can be pricey. This natural, affordable option is a great place to start for your aging or anxious pup.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the difference between a full-spectrum formula and a broad-spectrum formula?

A full spectrum formula isn’t pared down to just CBD. Instead, it includes several other cannabinoids (CBN, CBC, CBL, CBD-V, and more) with their own antioxidants, amino acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and phytonutrients. What does this mean? R&R’s term of creating the “Entourage effect” means welcoming the naturally occurring compounds to work in unison to create a well-rounded formula made just as nature intended.

A broad-spectrum formula combines all the same cannabinoids and naturally occurring processes, except the THC is removed.

Can any size dog use these chews?

Yes. R&R’s recommended dosage is one chew per day for 1-25 lbs and two chews per day for 26+ lbs.

Where does R&R ship to?

R&R ships around the United States, where they are made, but has an extensive list of other countries on their shipping labels. They can ship to Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland and the UK.

Our Experience With R&R CBD Chews

R&R CBD

If you’ve scrolled through and seen pictures of a senior Australian Cattle dog, you’ve been introduced to Winnie. Winnie belongs to my neighbors, Jill and Justin. They picked her up from a less-than-ideal situation long ago in Alberta, Canada. Winnie was the runt of an already disadvantaged litter, and her tiny, hunched-over, sullen demeanor won her a freedom ride to her lifelong family.

Now that you’ve met, let me tell you about Winnie’s demeanor. If you’re a Cattle Dog owner, this will sound all too familiar. Winnie is a vocal, nimble rocket around the feet of all guests to the home, insisting on a bow-wow when you enter. She is a staple around many bonfires, incessantly tossing you her ball to throw, and will occasionally let out a yip if you’ve forgotten to throw her ball (again!). With this high-intensity personality, Winnie’s hips started to cause her pain in her later years, and she’s always been a little nervous in the car.

I have five dogs of my own, but we chose Winnie for this trial because she had obvious pain markers that were easy to identify and we hoped to remedy.

Winnie pulls out all her best tricks for one of these chews. If she could talk, she would say the chews are delicious, so much so that while taking her photos, we had to be sure not to have too many in our hands because she was an expert at sneaking more than her allotted one.

We waited approximately 30 days before writing this review to allow the CBD chews to take effect. During the month, we observed Winnie playing fetch a little longer without her legs shaking. She was slightly less anxious in the car, but the most significant change was her ability to walk up and down stairs without favoring her back hips. Winnie used to step down each step with her front paws, but her back legs would “hop” in unison to accommodate her weakened hips. Now she walks unimpeded, paw-by-paw, down the stairs.

Conclusion

R&R’s formula is full of quality ingredients, and while some companies may be keen to lessen the quality for pups who can’t review themselves, R&R keeps the quality top of mind without the hefty price tag.

Jill confirmed that Winnie’s comfort has increased over the month. She happily declared she’d continue purchasing R&R’s CBD Dog Chews if they were affordable. At $45 for a one-time purchase, with package prices, subscriptions, and discounts available, these chews are the affordable choice Jill was looking for.

My Cattle Dog, Bruce (yes, we have matching dogs), recently suffered a tendon strain. With such great feedback, I will try a round of R&R’s CBD Chews on him while he heals!
