I've fed brambles (roses, blackberries, raspberries, dewberries, etc. I rinse and sun dry them) from my garden for years without issues. They nibble the thorns off rose trimmings first.
Dried whole rose hips from various online shops are also a welcome treat in our house. Frontier and Starwood both package organic rose hips as loose tea. The quality is reliable; they're fragrant and not dusty.
I don't give more than a pinch; the nutrition data for fresh rose hips suggest they're quite nutritious. https://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/ethnic-foods/10470/2 Dried is slightly less nutritious, but still great as a treat, especially relative to packaged treats. https://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/custom/2340250/2
I'm always skeptical of "some [people] say". The plural of anecdote isn't "data", but at least with anecdotes and personal opinions, you can ask the person questions about their experience and reasonings.
