The BaOx high CBD hemp strain is a classic. Pronounced bay-ox, the BaOx hemp strain was originally created by Centennial Seeds based in Colorado. Because of its strong cannabinoid composition, growing efficiency, and its overall durability, it has become one of the most popular strains among hemp cultivators.
The cannabinoid composition of BaOx made it one of the earliest strains to be considered suitable for the smokable hemp market. With a high percentage of CBD and consistently low percentage of THC, it has been a great option for those seeking the therapeutic benefits of cannabis minus the psychoactive effects. The low THC content has also allowed hemp cultivators to ensure compliance with federal law.
These attributes also made BaOx a preferred cultivar for the production of a variety of different hemp/CBD products. The strain has a great degree of predictability, it is very robust, and the high cannabinoid content makes it economical to grow as well.
Another reason BaOx was a popular cultivar early on, was its unique terpene profile. While other early hemp cultivars lacked the pleasant aromas and flavors present in traditional cannabis, BaOx was one of the first to offer a diverse aromatic profile consisting of spicy, fruity, and earthy notes resulting from high percentages of caryophyllene and myrcene. These higher concentrations of terpenes also contributed to a desirable balance of uplifting and sedating effects which have been enjoyed by consumers.
