Centennial Now Offering In-house Analytical Services

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. […]

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 […]

Otto#2 And The Invisible Hand

September 15, 2013

Today I began the early work to produce the Otto#2 seed. Over 2 years of positive feedback from commercial growers has helped me to develop a clear understanding of what the marketplace desires in a CBD-rich variety. I believe that the early Otto-x work is the perfect genetic base from which to start.

Carmagnola Hemp Update ~ 154 Days and Harvested

September 14, 2013

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 […]
