Otto #2 Update

July 24, 2014

I’ve decided to run a more complete, extended trial on this seed generation to better understand the ratios of the secondary compounds CBD and THC produced by these seeds. I know many of you are anxious to get your hands on the Otto #2 and i apologize for the delay in getting these to you. […]

Origins of a CBD Collaboration

December 20, 2013

Earlier this year I contributed a cut of Harlequin to a seed project run by my friend Laci. Harlequin is a clone-only CBD line from somewhere in the West. Clone-only means that it is a living clone derived from an individual plant. Another way to say this is that no seed version of Harlequin has […]

Carmagnola Hemp Update ~ 154 Days and Harvested

September 14, 2013

A couple of weeks ago a friend called and was talking about the upcoming Harvest Moon, October 14th. He made it sound romantic and I could imagine a cool moonlit October evening spent bringing in the sheaves. Literally. And then it began to rain. And rain. It became clear to me late yesterday that Mother […]

FSL#2 An Exceptionally High CBD Plant Preserved in Seed Form

April 6, 2013

  These came to me as a gift last week from a very generous friend. The seeds are selfed (S1) from a female Kush type that belonged to the people at Full Spectrum Labs. I am told the plant tested at 17% CBD and 6% THC. If this proves to be true, this could be […]

So, What Exactly is the Pinocchio Project?

April 4, 2013

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 […]

Czech Ruderalis ~ Seedlings at 31 Days

February 10, 2013

Czech Ruderalis ~ Seedlings at 31 Days These Ruderalis are really beautiful plants. Beautiful enough, I think, to be grown as ornamentals here in Colorado. You can see by the super-wide leaflets and efficient canopy that they are well adapted to the low light and long days found at high-latitudes. You’ll see that they are […]

Czech Ruderalis ~ Seedlings at 22 Days

February 2, 2013

Czech Ruderalis seedlings at 22 days. The bump in feed last week, which included a nice pulse of phosphorus and potassium, gave these seedlings a nice shot in the arm. Growth has increased dramatically and the foliage has greened up nicely. It is nice to get these out of the rooting cups and into some […]

Carmagnola Italian Hemp ~ Early Seedling Morphology

October 9, 2012

Carmagnola is a dioecious heirloom strain of hemp from Northern Italy. It is grown for its fiber which is used in numerous high-value textiles. The EU recognizes Carmagnola as a low THC technical cultivar with no drug value. The following photographs are of a small population of Carmagnola seedlings. Some of these seedlings exhibited interesting […]

Las Alpujarras @ 15 days flower ~ ‘simultaneously monoecious’

August 3, 2012

Back on 07/17 I decided it was time to induce flowering in these plants. I shortened the day length to 12 hours and fed with the Peters 10-30-20 @ 100PPM N. The plants have grown considerably since then. Unfortunately all of the Las Alpujarras displayed both male and female flowers at the same time. Plants […]
