Raise your hand if you have a cat. Raise your hand if you’ve heard of catnip. Raise your hand if you’ve seen cats go crazy for catnip. Raise your hand if you knew that catnip induces a high in cats. Raise your hand if you knew that catnip can be used in various ways for humans, too.
Okay, if you raised your hand to one or all of these, you’re a genius or have a very good handle of the Google or Bing search engines. If one or multiple statements had you scratching your head, instead of raising your hand, then you’re not alone. In today’s Cascadia Cornucopia video, Adrian highlights this cat euphoria-inducing plant, and a few ways humans can enjoy its existence, as well, all-be-it a little more mundane. That is to say, unlike our feline counterparts, we won’t see students or faculty rolling around with glee in the Cornucopia’s catnip.
Green Tip: catnip can be dried and used in tea to calm upset stomachs. Snip a bit today for your furry feline, or for yourself!
