The Otto II is a hybrid high-CBD hemp seed developed in Colorado. Otto II is stable and breeds true for high-ratio CBD expression. Excellent for use in botanical extraction applications. 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. Red Bordeaux (Feminized) Red Bordeaux is essentially a Berry Blossom bx that was developed with the Colorado farmer in mind concerned about early frost. With no compromise in vigor this varietal allows you to stagger your harvest beginning with Bordeaux in the middle of September. This is a huge logistical advantage when dealing with acres of biomass giving you the ability to harvest your slightly later finishers in their ideal harvest window. Hemp seed costs vary depending on the type of hemp you want to grow, so before you buy hemp seed, consider your ultimate goal. The breakdown: there are three different types of hemp—high CBD, food grain and fiber. High CBD hemp seeds range from about $0.50-$2.50 per seed, while food grain hemp seeds cost about $5 per pound, and fiber hemp seeds are about $3-$4 per pound. If you’re growing hemp for CBD, your best option is hemp with high CBD content and good feminization rates; the feminization rate is important because CBD is extracted from female hemp plants.
You can alternatively purchase female clones, which are 14-21 days old and ensure exceptional performance with 0% variability. For fiber and seed production, you’ll need hemp seeds that produce both male and female plants; for the latter, some male plants are necessary to pollinate the female plants for seed production. Hemp will grow in most parts of the US, with the exception of extreme desert areas. Hemp seeds grow best in warm weather and well-drained soil. In terms of legality, agriculture licenses for hemp production are available in 46 states, thanks to the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. It is illegal to produce hemp in Idaho, Mississippi, New Hampshire and South Dakota. CBD is extracted from the flower and stalks of mature hemp plants, not from the seeds themselves. In other words, CBD hemp seeds—like the hemp seeds for sale at Blue Forest Farms—will produce hemp plants that are high in CBD. Do feminized hemp seeds always produce female plants? Using feminized hemp seeds boosts your probability of producing a female plant to at least 99%—eliminating the time, effort and resources spent tending to all plants, and ultimately, determining their genders to remove the males. In our experience using feminized hemp seeds, we typically find one or two phenotypic males per 10,000 plants. It’s safe to say that feminized seeds can take the guesswork out of farming! Feminized hemp seed is produced without the introduction of male genetics. As a result, the plants that grow from feminized seed will not have access to the genetic information needed for male sex organs—ensuring that almost 100% of the plants produced will be female. Those of us in the business know that growing hemp on a commercial scale is a whole different experience than growing a small crop. Business operations have to take into account a slew of regulations and other factors. With the enormous boom in commercial hemp, seed providers have sprouted like weeds everywhere you look. Unfortunately, many of these new operations don’t have the knowledge or experience to ensure their seeds can provide the CBD concentration you’re looking for. At Cheyenne Mountain Seed Company we have invested in the facilities we need to produce the best quality seed. Hemp farmers are understandably focused on keeping the THC content of their hemp underneath the legal limit of 0.3% to ensure it doesn’t get classified as marijuana. But if you’re growing the hemp for CBD, another important measurement is how much CBD is in the plant when the THC approaches that legal limit. With our testing facilities, we are able to provide seeds that give growers the results they’re looking for. They’ve reported CBD to THC ratios of 27:1 all the way to 35:1.
With our technical skills combined with 10 years in the cannabis business, we are very confident in the quality of our seeds. We only grow feminized hemp seeds, which produces hemp with high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. To ensure pure feminized seeds we grow them under complete environmental control. Our state-of-the-art indoor grow rooms go beyond what greenhouses can do to prevent any outside pollen from contaminating our plants. When feminized pollen fertilizes feminized plants it is impossible to produce male seed. Our rigorous care to prevent cross-pollination ensures you can trust our feminized seed. That way, you don’t have to worry about wasting the significant time and money you invest in your hemp crop. Considering the many factors that affect the growth of industrial hemp, one thing you can be sure of is the quality of your seeds. At Cheyenne Mountain Seed Company we are meticulous about ensuring that we stay compliant with the latest state and federal regulations so we can provide our industrial farmers with hemp seeds that are safe and legal. Growing each strain in completely separate facilities keeps our seed pure.
The first is Mountain Mango, which boasts a CBD to THC ratio of 28:1. The second is Quick Kush, with a ratio of 28:1 it produces frosty, dank flower in short order. Our third choice, Cherry Wine, has a ratio of 25:1. These ratios ensure that you can grow plants that are low in THC and provide high amounts of CBD at the same time.
