So, What Exactly is the Pinocchio Project?

About 5 years ago a representative of Bedrocan USA gave me a research article on the inheritance of chemotypical properties of cannabis. It was a big eye opener for me and it set me down the road to make the Otto#1 seed.

For those of you that don’t know the Otto#1 was my first effort at producing a high-CBD expression hybrid cannabis seed.

Otto#1 turned out to be a wonderfully successful project and I learned a great deal from it. The low-THC, high-CBD profile of the Otto#1 has made it extremely popular with those medical users that want the relieving effects of CBD without the sometimes overwhelming effects of THC. My goal now is to take what I have learned from the Otto Project and to try to improve on it.

The Pinocchio Project is my second attempt at a CBD-rich strain. The seed being grown in this trial is F1. It is derived completely from seed of known origin. The female parent stock is an extremely vigorous pure THC type. The male parent stock is a pure CBD type, highly inbred. The are both dioecious, meaning that there are separate male and female forms. They are also both rather tall.

That’s the nuts and bolts of the project so far. Now I wait for three or four months until the early indoor trialers finish a crop. What I’m most interested in in how they assay for those two specific cannabinoids. Until then. -Ben
