MISSISSIPPI: Meowijuana, a catnip company, has launched a new product line that is creatively branded and plays on the euphoric “high” some cats have from catnip. The company sells 100 percent organic catnip that is available for shipping both domestically and internationally. Meowijuana’s legendary catnip is grown in Southern California and Washington State.
Although the company uses the trademarked tag line, “For cats who need the weed”, there is no actual marijuana in the product. It is perfectly safe and legal for both cats, and even people, to consume. Catnip, which is from the mint family, contains the chemical nepetalactone, which triggers a sense of euphoria in susceptible cats. But not all cats react to catnip. Pet MD has noted that sensitivity to catnip is an inherited trait effecting 50 to 75 percent of cats. Catnip produces a different response depending on how it’s consumed. Sniffing catnip produces a stimulant effect while eating it can cause sedation in cats.
The company also sells the product similarly to the way marijuana dispensaries do in Colorado and other states where it is legal. Meowijuana’s Purple Passion Jars offer the product in clear re-sealable jars. The catnip buds were harvested during peak oil product providing cats the next-level catnip experience. For the most dedicated catnip connoisseurs, Meowijuana offers the Grand Daddy Purr Cigar Box. The humidity-regulated cigar boxes are filled with the finest 100 percent organic Grand Daddy Purr Catnip buds. The company even offers their customers, a Medical Meowijuana ID card, which includes the cat’s pictures, name, sex and date of birth.
“We offer the highest-quality, pet-safe, organic catnip you will find on the market today all packaged in a unique branding concept that our customers love,” says Chris Glissman, CEO of Meowijuana, LLC. “Our team has a great time marketing our product, which is a great gift for your cat. Plus our customers enjoy the shopping experience.”
