Cinderella 99, also known as Cindy or C99, is a strong hybrid that leans heavily toward sativa strains.
A few seeds were found inside a Jack Herer bud that Mr. Soul, the company’s founder, had bought in an Amsterdam coffee shop in the late 1990s. He developed one into Princess, a cultivar that reportedly offered a much more psychedelic high than other strains at the time.
He then set out to develop a super-strain that would enable him to spread Princess throughout the entire world. To increase plant strength, he first crossed a Princess female with a Shiva Skunk male using the triple backcrossing technique known as “cubing” to produce the parent strain Cinderella 88. In order to produce Cinderella 99, the so-called Holy Grail of Hybrids, he bred Cinderella 88 and Princess once more.
The fairy tale heroine, like the cultivar, had humble beginnings but blossomed into royalty, hence the name Cinderella. Due to the strain’s strong linalool content, consumers enjoy its fruity, floral aroma.
The strain should be simple to grow, have higher yields, and be resistant to common diseases, making it suitable for both inexperienced and seasoned breeders. Due to its sativa genetics, this plant grows tall and bears fluffy, long buds in 56–63 days indoors or in early October outdoors.
Cinderella 99 produces average yields indoors. In the right circumstances, the yield outside can be quite high.
Both seeds and clones of Cinderella 99 are available.
