‘Princess’ was a specially-selected Sensi Jack Herer F2 from the late 90′s… a male seed from the same batch of Jack Herer was crossed to a special Shiva Skunk female, producing some male seeds suitable for breeding. A selected male was crossed with Princess, the product seeds of which were then crossed back to Princess over three generations. Ideally, Princess was ‘cubed’ by being bred to her male offspring, producing an extremely stable seed stock that become the legendary Cinderella 99.
Varies a bit according to phenotype (there are two main ones — grapefruit and pineapple), but it’s generally a sharp and almost putrid citrus/pineapple. The Brothers Grimm’s favorite phenotype was known as the “evil pineapple” pheno and has an almost rotten meat quality to the sharp fruity smells.
Cinderella 99 is known for having a soaring cerebral effect that can be very rushy for some patients. It’s often a “thinker” strain, making the mind race at a million miles per hour and even causing visual and auditory distortions. Recommended most highly for its strong nerve effects, headache relief, appetite stimulation, and energy. Not really recommended for those with anxiety issues or those seeking sleep aid or deep relaxation… this is a strain which can keep you awake at night due to the uptick in mental activity.
Bred for indoor growing, C-99 works well in soil or hydro, but the best flavors are generally realized through soil. It’s a plant that stays relatively short for its Sativa-heavy lineage, producing a lot of branches and a long main cola if left untrained.
