OK so what is all the fuss about catnip buds?
- Rare to find
- Hand harvested in USA!
- Organically Grown without pesticide or weed killers
- The most potent catnip format
- Non GMO
- Fragrant, pure catnip blossom
- Safe and healthy for cats!
First, it is the most potent dried catnip format you will find. Here’s Why:
Nepetalactone is the natural chemical in catnip that drive cats crazy and gives them those healthy ecstasy moments. The Nepetalactone is contained in the catnip plant essential oil. There is a higher concentration of essential oil in the flower pistils and less in the leaves and stems.
For example, to recognize a great catnip mulched leaf and flower cut, look for the tiny bell shaped pieces in there (the pistils). They contain the most essential oil. They are pieces of the flower top. Then there are leaf and stem pieces in the mix. The more bells in the mix, the most potent the leaf and flower cut!
Our All Natural catnip buds are Harvested at the peak of the plant essential oil production providing cats with the most potent and aromatic catnip available on the market today. Hand harvested by From The Field catnip experts with true feline instinct.
Our catnip buds are hand harvested in our Washington State catnip fields around the end of July each year, at maximum natural essential oil content. They are then carefully dried, and packaged.
How To Get The Most Potency Out Of Your Catnip Buds
When giving catnip buds to your cat, we recommend crushing a flower piece between your fingers and giving it to your cat after removing the stems.
Guess what? When you crush the buds, you release the essential oil trapped in those tiny pistil bells, and your cat will hear bells once he gets a whiff!
