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.
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.
