    This was perfect for my rabbits. They are really enjoying their comfy new burrows!

    Very good and cost effective when bought by the bale. I use for my guinea pigs' "kitchen/bathroom" area and as a growing media for wheatgrass.

    I have ordered this type of litter from Amazon and it only came on 50 lb bags. I have guinea pigs and live in an apart so there is no need for a bag of litter that big. The smaller bags on this site last plenty long and this is the best litter for odor control. Old Dominion Hemp has also been a great company to work with.

  4. Rick Williams (verified owner)

    Work great for both my snakes and mice. Almost no dust as all and grat at controlling the odor in a crowded mouse town. Marty and the rest of the crew area pleasure to deal with. A+!

    My rabbits and I love this bedding. The product effectively absorbs moisture and allows for an easy cleanup. I will be ordering again.

    I don't believe that it is more absorbing that recycled paper bedding.

  7. Marcus Johnson (verified owner)

    This product is amazing. I have three rats and finding the perfect bedding was a process. Hemp seemed good, but they were either so expensive, or low quality, I'd find debris in the bag with the bedding. I thought to look around and found Old Dominion Hemp and couldn't be happier. There is very little dust, I think zero dust would be impossible honestly, and it works perfectly. I won't buy hemp bedding anywhere else again.

  8. Louise (verified owner)

    It is a great product, no dust, easy composting in the deep litter method

  9. Lisa (verified owner)

    Excellent product I have been using in my chicken coop. Terrific for also then putting in my garden to use as compost. Very low dust and keeps the coop fresh.

  10. Duval (verified owner)

    purchased as new bedding for our guinea pigs... seems promising! thank you!

  11. Michele (verified owner)

    I use this for my chickens in the winter. This is my 2nd year of doing so. I LOVE IT!! Breaks down all the poop and no smell.

  12. anne marie (verified owner)

    Great bedding! It's really dust free. I got the small animal bedding for my pet rats, so far they love it.

  13. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this stuff. Keeps the upper respiratory infections at bay, and is truly dust free! Best odor control ever and truly absorbent. You won’t be disappointed.

  14. Maurisa (verified owner)

    Really like the hemp bedding for my girls.

  15. Deborah Huddleston (verified owner)

    It's amazing the difference even a couple days makes.
    I have been telling everyone about it.

  16. Kathy (verified owner)

    We received our Old Dominion hemp bedding long before our coop arrived. Our coop has arrived and we quickly put down the bedding. It was easy to spread and did not kick up lots of dust, a major plus!!

  17. Dawn B. (verified owner)

  18. Ginny E. (verified owner)

    I love this bedding! And I love that it is local right here in VA!

  19. Journey H. (verified owner)

    I bought this to use as chicken bedding/nests. I was a little hesitant at first because of the price for the amount, but a little goes a long ways with Hemp bedding, apparently. I have four hens and was able to fill their nests using only about a quarter of the bag.

  20. Keith (verified owner)

    I think it's great and the chickens seem to like it. But the price is a major problem for me. The quantity vs the price are not compatible.

  21. Jayna Hassler (verified owner)

    Absorption is great. I use for chicken chicks and sticks to their feet less than any pine bedding. Safe & cozy.

  22. Janice Lee (verified owner)

    Best thing for a chicken coup!

Additional Info

Absorbs 4X Its Own Weight

Hemp is 75% cellulose and is a natural absorbent. The perfect material to keep your pet dry and happy. Yes, that’s right – four times its weight, compared to 2X for wood and paper products. This means you need to clean and change bedding less often.

Reduces Odors

Hemp bedding has excellent odor-resistant properties — perfect for a rabbit hutch full of bunnies. Hemp bedding is non-acidic and has a neutral odor. The perfume of cedar is alluring, but plicatic acid, a substance found in tree resins, can actually destroy cells in the lungs and trachea.

Low Dust Means Improved Air Quality

Dust compromises the quality of air for your pet and can easily lead to breathing complications. Hemp bedding offers a low dust environment, crucial for the health of your pet. It has air pockets and excellent heat retention properties when compared to sawdust or pine shavings. Eye and lung irritation can occur from dust that is found in many commercial reptile substrate products.

Hemp Helps Regulate Humidity in Terrariums

Humidity levels vary from species to species. The unique structure of hemp bedding allows airflow and moisture retention, these special qualities make hemp a versatile and dependable bedding for reptiles. Cleaning is fast and easy with hemp bedding in your terrarium.

Biodegradable = Better for Pet and Planet

Hemp bedding degrades faster than most pet care products such as wood shavings and sawdust. Perfect for your garden compost. Support sustainable farming practices and help create a larger demand for Hemp. The earth and economy will thank you for it.

*Not recommended for small tortoises
