NoCo Hemp Festival 2017 ~ Will I be there?

March 30, 2017

Many people are asking me, “Hey, will you be at NoCo this week?” I’ve got to say no, but not because it isn’t a great thing they’re doing up there. I feel very strongly that it is a great thing; people meet, people learn, pure community-building stuff. My problem is, as it always seems to […]

Otto II Seed Is Back!

February 8, 2017

Last year I formed a partnership with a Colorado industrial hemp farmer to produce an Otto II seedlot for the 2017 planting season. That seedlot is harvested and undergoing testing in our lab. Once the seedlot has been proofed and germination tested it will be available for purchase. This partnership accomplishes a major goal of […]

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. The seed has been back-crossed and stabilized for high-CBD expression, fast flowering time and a short, dense structure. Once testing is complete, the seed […]

Muddy Start to the 2015 Hemp Planting Season

May 27, 2015

It’s no secret that we’ve had an extraordinarily wet spring season this year along parts of the Front Range. The heavy rains have impacted hemp farmers, preventing many of them from planting their fields. The soil type on the farm I lease is a sandy loam over heavy clay. It generally drains well until it […]

Otto II ~ High CBD Seed

January 23, 2015

The Otto seed line began in 2009 with an unknown seed sample given to me by Bob Winnicki, founder of Full Spectrum Labs. This original material was highly variable, but it did contain a number of high CBD:THC ratio plants that became the early breeding parents of today’s Otto II(TM). The Otto II is a […]
