The plants are vigorous and can be quite large. Flowering is complete indoors at 70-77 days. Grown in sunlight along Colorado’s Front Range, flowers reach their peak resin content in late September to early October..
“Terpenes are compounds in cannabis that work in conjunction with cannabinoids to produce the flavor, aroma and effects unique to each strain. While THC and CBD get the most recognition in recreational and medicinal circles, terpenes actually have very powerful health benefits on their own. In fact, many believe that terpene isolation is the future of cannabis breeding.
We’ve gotten to know this strain here at SHO as a result of a gift of seeds from a good friend. And we can’t say enough good stuff about it.
“The Otto II is a hybrid high-CBD hemp seed developed in Colorado by Ben Holmes, owner of the Centennial Seeds brand. Otto II is stable and breeds true for high-ratio CBD expression. Otto II is excellent for use in botanical extraction applications.
Farnesene:Interestingly, the lab we use doesn’t yet test for the terpene that is supposedly most abundant in this strain: Farnesene, which is present in many fruit skins, particularly apple skins. Reportedly, “at least 17% of its terpene content is in Farnesene.” https://industrialhempfarms.com/hemp-strains/otto-ii-cbd-hemp-flower-strain-review/ ”This terpene is very popular in fruit coatings such as apple skins. It is this terpene that gives these buds a slightly green apple aroma.”
”A centennial sensation, Otto II Premium hemp flower possesses an irresistible combination of fragrances and a heady mix of restorative effects. This CBD-rich hybrid strain satisfies one and all with its odoriferous buds and its ambrosial flavor profile. Sweet, uplifting, fruity and fun, Otto II Premium hemp flower is resinous and radical. With a one-of-a-kind terpene profile and full spectrum effects, Otto II will make for a deeply expressive and ecstatic experience. These nugs come from one of the most stable indoor CBD hemp mothers around and are sativa dominant for optimal serenity. Stay chill without the couch lock and scratch that cerebral itch you’ve been wanting to dig at. This premium bud will mellow you out without leaving you drooling or spacing. An unusually vigorous and weather resistant strain, Otto II is maximized for potency and offers all of the relaxation of other strains with all of the ponderousness the inquisitive smoker could want. Featuring frosty tips to rival those of Guy Fieri and a floral finish that will leave you swooning, Otto II Premium is a paragon of artisanal splendor. Expect hints of green apple, wintergreen and magnolia. Terpenes include a-Pinene, b-Myrcene, b-Caryophyllene and a whopping percentage of the ever-resonant Farnesene. Each of these unique terpenoids contribute to Otto II’s incredible effects and alluring aromas. Pairs nicely with our Cherry Wine CBD hemp flower as both are fruity and fantastic on their own and even better as a team. “ https://www.leafly.com/products/details/ihf-llc-otto-2-hemp-flower
When Otto II is grown as industrial hemp we recommended that Δ9-THC levels are assayed 3 to 5 weeks prior to anticipated harvest to verify that the crop meets the statute for maximum delta9-THC levels. Testing is crucial during periods of unusually hot weather and drought conditions which may increase total Δ9-THC levels in hemp plants.” from http://www.centennialseeds.com/2015/01/23/otto-ii-high-cbd-seed/
It’s vigorous, it loves to grow in the cold of Vermont, it doesn’t like weed competition and favors Vermont’s moist mountain soils. The aromas are AMAZING. I say this as a chef who waxes rhapsodic only when warranted…and Otto II is a delightful mix of balanced aromas. VERY citrusy, with a deep earth but non-skunky aroma…and layers of other fruitiness, pine, and even licorice!! Hand to God, I smelled licorice as our plants dried!
Terpenes can take on many different aromas and flavors. Each with their own natural benefits to health.
Farnesene is one such terpene that naturally occurs in cannabis. It also occurs in many other plants too. Most commonly found in fruit coatings like apple skins, it’s mainly responsible for the familiar “green apple” aroma. If you identify this scent in cannabis, you can be certain that strain contains high amounts of farnesene. One of its benefits to plants is that it acts as a natural insect repellent.

Not best but cheap
Purchased a 14 gram bag of the Otto. Gotta say I was disappointed. The smell right off the bat was earthy. After it was broke up it gave off this semi sweet smell and had a little bit of stickiness to it. That I liked. I rolled a joint like I do to try a new product out. The flavor was almost off putting. Didn’t burn my throat but like the special sauce I got this bitter medicinal/chemical taste on my tongue and back of my throat. The effects were minimal, but they were there. I give 2 stars because it’s a little better than my last experience with a plain Jane product. I have 2 more products to try before I give my final decision whether or not I’m ordering anything else from here. My opinion, if you decide to try this strain don’t order big quantities.
In this video I review tryplainjane.com’s Otto 2 Franklin Hemp.
THC Content: This product contains less than .3% THC and is 100% legal.
It is highly advised to act responsibly and treat this like a cannabis product, as it can look like marijuana. Plain Jane is not responsible for anyone confiscating this product, nor arresting/fining you for having this legal product in your possession because of a misunderstanding of what it actually is. Buy and consume at your own risk.
I was definitely let down with the look and smell. It almost looked like some old school brick weed I’d get as a kid. Affects were decent. Won’t be buying again.
decent smoke but very seedy. first bowl i packed had a seed in it, looked at the bag and saw 4 more sitting on the bottom. just broke down a small bud and found 3 more. at least i can grow it myself now, but do i even want to?
