Charlotte’s Web claimed to have 17 mg of total cannabinoids per 1 mL serving. It was labeled “broad spectrum” and should have had zero THC. The labs found about 0.6 mg of THC, 20 mg of CBD, and other cannabinoids.

Update: The bottle was updated to correctly identify this product as a THC product.

*It’s common to see oral CBD products with doses for pets at 1 mg, 3 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, to over 25 mg. We recommend speaking with a veterinarian or following manufacturer directions. CBD dosing is highly individualized in humans and our pets share the same unique endocannabinoid system. The type of CBD product, the kind of pet, size of pet, conditions, the severity of conditions, and individual tolerances will dramatically change your pet's ideal CBD dose.

* Cost per mg calculated from Lab A's test results.

The average full-spectrum extract costs 10 cents per milligram of CBD. This full-spectrum product is exactly 10 cents per milligram. However, this was labeled "broad spectrum" and should not have contained THC. It isn't easy to put a value on a product that you didn't want.

About the product

Warning: both independent labs found THC in this product labeled "broad spectrum," which should NOT have contained THC.

Charlotte’s Web claimed this is a broad-spectrum extract, which should include CBD, other cannabinoids, and zero THC. However, our independent labs found 0.58mg to 0.65mg of THC per mL, which is substantial.

Update: The Charlotte’s Web packaging and website page of this product were updated to remove "broad spectrum" and correctly label this product as “full spectrum.”

The independent labs found Charlotte’s Web contained 30.85% to 32.47% more cannabinoids than their label suggested.

Jeremy's Take

Charlotte’s Web is the largest CBD company on earth. I’ve tested a bunch of their products and I am a fan of this company. However, this product was labeled as “broad spectrum” and should NOT have contained THC. Mislabeled THC can be a problem for some sensitive doggies and owners of those doggies who live in places where THC is illegal. Charlotte’s Web has updated this product label and website page to correctly identify it as a THC product.
