What is Silvervine? :)


It comes in a box...
 
The silvervine are individually sealed
I had seen a small box of "silvervine powder" at the pet section of a Japanese shop but never thought much of it until I saw a video of Maru having fun with a silvervine stick.

It's Asia's version of catnip and popular in Japan.  You can read a little more about it here : What is Silvervine (Actinidia Polygama).  Some say it's even more potent than catnip!

Ling : I don't know what it is, but it makes me C-R-A-Z-Y!
I'm not sure if you can get silvervine outside of Asia but perhaps you could try the pet section of a Japanese specialty store?
