Cinderella 99 is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain that was originally developed by the breeders at Brothers Grimm. When they closed shop, this truly iconic strain nearly disappeared.
Shortly after, an F2 generation of C99 was developed with the aid of two high-quality parent plants that embodied the best traits in terms of flavour, smell, high and fastest flower period.
When grown in soil, Cinderella 99 typically yields about 50 grams of dried product on average. These numbers increase when grown indoors under controlled conditions. Cinderella's buds are quite dense for a sativa-dominant strain.
It has a pleasingly fruity aroma and an ample coat of sugary resin. Flowering time is between about 60 days when grown indoors under a 12/12 lighting cycle. Cinderella grows well outdoors as well with comparable and even superior yields under optimal growing conditions.
The leaves are typical for a sativa: very fine and somewhat of a challenge to manicure. The upside is that these plants clone well, making for an attractive return on investment in these seeds.
Trichomes develop in abundance and produce some very impressive product that improves as the plants are allowed to continue growing and maturing.
The plants grow to a medium height and are generally on the shorter side for a dominant sativa. Lateral branches wills stretch a bit so care must be taken to ensure equal distribution of light to the entire plant.
Cinderella 99 produces a silly, effervescent but clear-headed high with just a few tokes. The flavour is much like pineapple and other tangy citrus notes.
The sweet flavour and its tendency to bring on the giggles make Cinderella 99 a fun strain for enthusiasts of all description. Medical marijuana users appreciate this strain for the moderate effects and its ability to combat a number of physical and emotional ailments.
