Cinderella 99 received her name because, like the well-known fairly tale heroine, she is a high-class girl with humble origins. Originally, the Brothers Grimm developed the F1 generation of Cinderella 99, but they discontinued their business, making the strain unavailable. Gypsy Nirvana commissioned the breeders at Nirvana to produce the F2 generation. They selected two top parents and concentrated on reviving a version of Cinderella that retained the “traits package” of delicious flavor, sativa high, and a quick finish.
The F2 Cindy was selected and stabilized. When planted in an 11-liter (3-gallon) soil bucket, Cinderella 99 yields 50 grams (almost 2 ounces) of dried bud on average – not a huge cornucopia of pot yield, but a respectable-sized harvest of premium slow-smoking buds. Cinderella’s bud construction is very dense for a sativa-dominant plant, with a fruit aroma and a nice sugary resin coating. Gypsy Nirvana’s stabilized F2 Cindys finished flowering between 57 and 61 days under a 12/12 indoor light cycle. Although developed for indoor growing, Cinderella has fared very well outdoors too, yielding of up to one kilo of bud per plant.
The abundance of fine leaves typical of sativas can make Cinderella 99 difficult to manicure, but she is easy to clone. Abundant trichome development can be seen two thirds of the way down her first leaves, closest to the buds.
Cinderella 99 gives a silly, bubbly yet lucid head high with a few inhalations of her pineapple -like smoke or vapor. Sweet taste and giggle fits make Cindy 99 fun for occasional smokers while her classic sativa mind stimulation – and her growing traits – will please the old school congregation of devoted tokers.
