C99 aka Cinderella 99 was one of the first feminized cannabis strains introduced at the birth of Female Seeds in 2003. However, work on this strain actually started back in 1999 and the first batch produced of this amazing strain were still regular cannabis seeds. Years of experimentation with the original Brothers Grimm C99 led to the creation of Female Seeds' very own C99. The origins are difficult to determine now, but it was a long flowering Sweet Tai landrace crossed with a short flowering Sativa. Most likely it was the Durban Poison.
The canabis seeds currently provided by Femal Seeds were backcrossed to stabilize the genetics with two specially selected C99 phenotypes, a Grapefruit and the legendary Pineapple Pheno. The result is the holy grail of cannabis strains, a fast flowering sativa that has the taste and high of an exceptionally sweet landrace sativa. A landrace that normally takes up to half a year to flower. But this C99 flowers in just 8 to 9 weeks and has an unusually high CBD content for a sativa strain.
The C99 doesn't stretch too much and grows like a dream, very vigorously. If you really want to maximize the yield, we recommend leaving C99 uncut for four weeks. Outdoors, she stretches more than average during the flowering phase, reaching a handsome height of 2 to 3 meters.
This C99 is a sativa-dominant hybrid and has 2 phenos. One is a bit more compact while the other stretches a bit more. The C99 forms a huge, candle-shaped bud with several smaller nugs on the lower branches. All buds are very dense and nicely coated with copious amounts of resin.
Topping this strain or LST is no problem for the C99. She is also a great cannabis strain for outdoor growing until around mid-October in more temperate and warmer climates. C99 is very mold resistant outdoors due to its bud structure, so high humidity is not an issue for C99.
One phenotype has that wonderful grapefruit smell. The other phenotype has that legendary, sought-after pineapple smell. Overall, a very nice, balanced flavor between fruity-sweet and pleasantly tart. In effect, it is a typical sativa; a warm, glowing, happy and uplifting effect floods your body. This high is long-lasting and stimulates the mind, as the weed provides you with a lot of creative energy.
