Organic Catnip Buds Kitty Krack with Seeds (Nepeta cataria) - 1 oz
Do you want to give your cat something a little more potent? How about some real catnip buds? The buds are the most potent part of the catnip plant! I start harvesting my chemical free catnip herb by hand when they begin to flower. All day long I watch as a variety of winged locals visit my catnip crop. From gold finches chattering among the stalks, to bees peacefully buzzing from bud to bud. I dive right in the mix cutting as much as I can fit into my dehydrator which I set at a low herb safe 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Use my freshly dried premium catnip bud to refill your cat's favorite toy, stuff a catnip mat or pillow, put in a sock, or just spread on the floor for a Catnip Roll-A-Thon... or should I say Drool-A-Thon?
- Qty: Approx. 1 ounce
Freshly Dried: My catnip is harvested every three days and air dried. My premium nip is no more than a month old when shipped to you.
First I cut off the leaves for whole leaf Kitty Krack, removing any small stems. I snip off the seed heads or buds, then I measure and cut the sturdy stalks for Catnip Chew Sticks. The small bits that I don't dry are enjoyed by my kitties. The rest gets composted.
Contents are 100% catnip. You can give the buds to your cat as is or crush them to release even more scent. By not turning my catnip into dust, I enable the herb to retain it's potency; providing your kitty with a exciting treat!

Feel good knowing you are getting non GMO catnip grown in a natural environment free from chemicals and synthetic fertilizers. I intermingle all my herbs creating a messy but beautifully interesting landscape. I believe this attracts a larger variety of bugs, helping to keep any one species from overtaking. NO! sprays or treatments, even the organic approved types. I work with Mother Nature, not against her...
Grown with Organic Methods: My catnip grows with nothing more than water, West Virginia mountain sunshine and organic compost from my own eco farm (NEVER any pesticides, insecticides or herbicides). The only thing it is ever sprayed with is rain water. Some leaves may have holes or nibbled edges, but insect activity actually encourages catnip plants to make more nepetalactone, the active ingredient that cats adore.
Catnip for humans: It is very calming for both the body and the mind. It is very useful for children with digestive &/or emotional disturbances. The essential oil can be used as a fragrance in perfumes, as a culinary flavoring, and as an insect repellent. Note: Pregnant women should avoid catnip, as it can induce uterine contractions.
Catnip for cats: It gets cats high, it makes them happy, spunky, & silly. They enjoy the plant live or dried. The buds are the most potent part of the plant. Put it into cat toys or give it to them as is. They will love you for it! Note: Kittens younger than eight weeks old aren't able to enjoy catnip, wait until they are older.
My premium catnip bud is seasonal, so supplies are limited!
It is always good to supervise your kitty while at play with any toy.
Cats can become desensitized to catnip if exposed to it too often. I recommend reserving catnip drool fests to 1 or 2 times a week.
Note: Catnip may get crushed in shipping.
