How Does Catnip Work?
Catnip contains a chemical called nepetalactone; this is the THC of the kitty cat world. Fortunately our little friends have very advanced pheromone receptors, so they need not smoke catnip; they only have to smell it. Mother Nature works in mysterious ways, and while the exact science behind how catnip affects your little friend’s brain is unknown, it is almost as if somebody out there knew that the physical body structure of a cat would make this particular animal naturally bad at rolling joints. Nepetalactone is actually designed to affect the cat through its scent glands. This is extremely convenient for the cat owner, because if you have ever tried to pass your cat a bong, believe me, they spill it every time.
