Fast drying and no smell

It was worth it I use it in my brooder and it drys fast and has little to no smells… by smell I mean of chicken/chick feces

Mostly dust

Tried this in my quail hutch, didn't stretch far, didn't do much to reduce odor or moisture. I don't understand the hype over hemp bedding.

Hemp > pellets or hay

Our bunny seems comfortable in it, it does have some tiny particles but not much actual dust in my experience. It generally feels fluffy but also slightly prickly. Definitely absorbent, which is good. He still smells up his cage after a day. I just feel like it’s more comfortable than pellets, and better than hay because he doesn’t eat it. (We still give him hay on the side.)

Good for odor control, but very dusty

I use this as a base in my rat cage under their softer paper bedding. It is excellent at extending the life of their bedding so I don't need to change their litter quite as often. However, I'm not sure if 99% dust-free means much in practice, because it is VERY dusty, even if only 1% is dust that is more than enough to irritate my nose on initially pouring it, and then over time there is a small buildup of dust around their cage as they forage and dig through the bedding, kicking up more dust.

eco friendly!

I love this item! Now my rabbits can have litter that is eco-friendly! Better than any other litter for odor control! I’m a fan forever!

VERY dusty

The description says 99% dust free. This is a lie. This bedding is extremely dusty and I'm hesitant to use it for my rats. There's probably 1-1.5 CUPS of dust in the bag. I normally use a different hemp bedding that has no dust. I will not be buying this again.

Love this product

I started using this June 2021 when I moved chicks into the coop. Once a week I will add some to cover poop and have been doing this with original hemp for 11 months. There is absolutely no smell and the only dust I’ve noticed is the DE I mix in. Small crusher fine in their run but will NEVER use anything else in their coop but this hemp. I may clean it all out this summer and add fresh but based on the smell I really don’t need to

We read that Hemp bedding was awesome for chickens. Absolutely correct. Love the bedding and so does our Silkie Chickens.

New chicken owner

I have already tried wood shavings, straw and pellets. The hemp over the top of a layer of pellets seems the best. Breaks down fast and keeps dust down

Too Dusty for indoor use

We bought this for our pet rats thinking it was more natural and better than pine, but very dusty. It's probably good for outdoor animals, but not indoor ones.
