July 1, 2015

Today begins final testing for a new high-CBD hybrid seed creation I call BaOx. Pronounced “box”, BaOx is based on selections from an inbred-line of Hindu-Kush and the Otto II seed.

It’s no secret that we’ve had an extraordinarily wet spring season this year along parts of the Front Range.

Long Overdue Update

June 18, 2014

They say, “the busiest man gets the most done”. Right now I feel like that man. There was a time when I would update this site more frequently. Over the course of this year my duties and responsibilities have increased to the point where it is no longer possible. I have a slight lull in […]
