Bring out the wild in your little one with our premium and very potent Wild N’ Free blend of catnip. Nepeta Cataria, this catnip is organically grown and pesticide-free. This exclusive blend is handpicked for perfection then air-dried sealing in the nepetalactone oil, the natural catnip oil that drives cats wild. The leaves and flowers are then gently taken off the branches carefully so that the leaves stay whole and do not break. As fresh as if it was just taken off of the plant. It does not get any fresher than this!
The problem with most catnip is the milling process. Once the leaves are crushed they begin to lose their potency due to the nepetalactone oil being released upon the breaking and crushing of the leaves and flowers. Milled catnip is still usable as long as it is fresh however, most store-bought catnip has been sitting around for a while.
In this whole leaf and flower state, your catnip will last much longer. I’ve stored catnip in this state for up to three years and when I crushed a little for my kitties it was still potent and fresh as if I had just dried it. As long as it is kept cool, dry, sealed, and away from kitties you can store it for some time. This way, you will always have a stockpile of your cat’s favorite ‘fix’ on hand.
You will get 4 grams of catnip enclosed in a resealable bag. Don’t let the weight fool you! This stuff is light on weight but it’s extremely potent. You only need to give your cat about two leaves or a leaf and a flower to get the same results as you would from regular catnip. Be sure to crush or rub between your fingers to awaken the nepetalactone oils. Each bag has roughly 20 servings.
NOTE: There are no branches or twigs in this mixture (hence why it is so light) but there are stems from the leaves and flowers. Wild N’ Free is not like regular store-bought catnip. Because of the freshness and potency give your cat only a small amount at first. This catnip is safe for human use and consumption. Kittens will not respond to catnip until they are about six months old. Sadly, 10 to 30 percent of cats will not respond at all to catnip.
SPECIAL NOTE: catnip is non-toxic and is not addictive nor will your cat overdoes on it. With that being said all cats are different. You should always keep an eye on your cat especially when they are getting high. Remember, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
