Most phenotypes are rich in CBD with a low THC content allowing patients to gain the medical benefits of the CBD without the distracting and sometimes overwhelming effects of high-THC strains.
This strain was developed at the request of a medical researcher on Oahu, Hawaii. The request was for replicable high CBD expression from a gender-stable seed. With the help of friends at Full Spectrum Labs in Denver, Colorado Centennial Seeds have produced Otto #1.
Otto #1 produces three gross chemotypes, each expressing varying ratios of CBD to THC, some as high as 27:1. Chemotypes have tested as high as 11.4% CBD-A with corresponding THC-A of <0.40%. Other chemotypes testing with CBD:THC ratios closer to 2:1 are present in this seed lot as well. Approximately 28% of plants expressed low CBD (< 0.18%).
The plant exhibits textbook hybrid vigour and is easy to grow.
It grows like a sativa, long and pinnate with an open foliage pattern. It can be grown indoors, outdoors or in greenhouses and will produce light sativa like buds. Like most sativa mould should not be a problem as foliage and buds are not too dense. Indoors the stalks and stems are strong and ridged and have no problems holding the weight of well-developed flowers.
Although this strain might grow like a sativa the breeder is keen to emphasise that the chemotype is outside of the range that would be covered by normal Sativa/Indica descriptions.
