BaOx is a high-CBD hemp strain initially bred by Centennial Seeds in Lafayette, Colorado. Breeders select this strain for its durability, excellent cannabinoid composition, and quick growing time. BaOx’s short, dense plant produces thick, forest-green flowers tinged with deep red pistils and sticky, resinous trichomes. Its unique terpene profile featuring both uplifting caryophyllene and sedating myrcene makes this strain ideal for 24-hour use. Its dense concentration of cannabidiol (usually between nine and 14 percent) and low THC levels (consistently less than 0.3 percent) gives BaOx incredible therapeutic potential without any psychoactive effects.
BaOx Lineage: Hindu Kush X Otto II
BaOx hemp seeds produce consistent results across generations thanks to its inbred Hindu Kush lineage. The back-crossed Hindu Kush gives BaOx its short, bushy stature, which makes it ideal for indoor cultivation facilities. However, many outdoor farmers also prefer this strain thanks to its durability against strong or variable weather conditions. BaOx grows well in both hot and cold climates thanks to its Hindu Kush genetics.
BaOx’s Otto II parent graces this hemp seed with vigorous growth. Flowers are often small due to the speed at which the Otto II grows and stretches. However, thanks to the strain’s lavish production of mushroom-shaped trichomes, small buds do not translate to a low yield. The rich flavor of the multi-colored “popcorn” buds makes any strain from the Otto II line perfect for full-spectrum extractions. Consumers note a particularly profound “green apple” flavor that passes from Otto II to its BoAx child.
BaOx Hemp Seeds Grow Patterns
BaOx is a fast-growing plant and can be harvested indoors about 75 days after germination. Outdoor BaOx hemp plants usually reach maturity between the last week of September and the first few weeks of October. It’s smaller buds mean this crop dries quickly, though, so a controlled curing room is recommended to remove unnecessary chlorophyll in the plant’s leaves and flowers. A proper slow cure is also necessary for optimal cannabinoid production.
BaOx hemp seeds are very resilient and grow well in a variety of climates and soil compositions. Though tolerant of extended high heat, BaOx tends to develop stress-induced THC so that she may grow best in indoor, temperature-controlled environments. Having said that, we recommend testing BaOx hemp crops at least three to five weeks before harvest to help control THC levels.
Uses and Applications of BaOx Hemp Seeds
BaOx is an exceptional strain for cannabinoid extraction, though a careful cure is necessary before processing for the best results. When grown indoors, BaOx produces pungent flowers that radiate pine and musk perfumes. The carefully-controlled indoor environment encourages this hemp plant to produce excessive terpenes and cannabinoids courtesy of a stress-free life. Though outdoor crops do not boast the same odorous perfumes, an increased crop size helps make up for the diminished flavor profile.
BaOx is a favorite CBD hemp seed among cultivation experts nation-wide. It’s durability and consistency offer the predictable results necessary for successful hemp farming. Feminized BaOx seeds reduce labor and increase output to create high-quality CBD hemp that meets local and federal regulations.
