Information about Glass Slipper:
Who would have thought that anybody could ever think of naming a weed after one of the most iconic symbols in the history of Disney Princesses? After all, marijuana and Disney do not seem to go well together.
Nonetheless, after a particular strain was named Cinderella, perhaps breeders thought that it is only fitting to name another strain to represent the most popular shoes of all time and come up with the greatest pun in the history of cannabis names. Hence, the strain named Glass Slipper was born.
It may not be the best representation of Cinderella’s actual glass slipper, but perhaps every kid who loved Cinderella and grew up to be a cannabis user would still want to get their hands on this strain.
As iconic as the real glass slipper was, the Glass Slipper strain has also gained the attention of many cannabis users due to its own unique and notable attributes. Let us get to know more about them below.
The Glass Slipper is said to originate from the Netherlands but was later bred and grown in the US.
Although the place of its origin seems to be clear among the members of the cannabis community, its parent strains remain to be a subject for debate. The common theory goes that the Glass Slipper was developed by crossing the Cinderella 99 and Pineapple strains.
However, some would claim that the strain came from a different lineage. For instance, some sources believe that Cinderella 99 was paired with a different strain called The White. For this reason, the rest of the users decided to just stick to the idea that the Glass Slipper simply has an unknown origin.
Either way, the Glass Slipper has proven itself to be more than its questionable origin. In fact, here are some of the known and verified information about the strain that every interested cannabis user should know.

The Glass Slipper hybrid strain is quite a potent strain with THC levels that can reach up to 20%. Due to its potency and the intense head high, this strain is not suitable for first-time users. For casual users, it would be good to start with a small quantity and build up over time to have a higher tolerance level.
The 70% Sativa content of Glass Slipper is a great energy booster that uplifts mood and generally makes users feel happy with a strong sense of euphoria. There are also some instances in which the strain could improve thought process, but that is most likely during the onset and using a small amount only.
The strain’s effective mental stimulation makes users more sociable and chatty. Therefore, the Glass Slipper is perfect for recreational use in social gatherings or a small get together with friends.
The strain’s 30% Indica content, on the other hand, allows users to feel a relaxing and mild body high that mellows down its intense cerebral effects without necessarily keeping users locked on a couch. This blending of both the mental and body high makes the Glass Slipper ideal for day use or an early evening treat.
One of the things that the Glass Slipper strain can boast about is its distinct and pleasant aroma that features the sweetness and citrus scents of tropical fruits with hints of pungent and dank earth.
The delicious flavors of Glass Slipper is a perfect complement to its pleasant aroma. It also has that sweet and citrus taste of berry with a leathery and musky aftertaste. This may be accompanied by a hint of spicy pine that lingers in your mouth for a while.
Glass Slipper is just like every other strain in the market. It has its own set of best features and a set of possible adverse reactions that may be acquired if a user is not careful enough.
Dry mouth is the most common adverse reaction experienced by users. Others include mild cases of dry eyes and anxiety. Users who are not experienced enough to be able to tolerate the intensity of the strain may also experience dizziness and headaches.
The Glass Slipper has proven itself useful in the field of medicine. With a CBD level that can reach up to 0.50%, the strain makes an effective aid for users and patients alike to alleviate certain health conditions.
For one, the strain’s ability to uplift one’s mood makes it very effective in helping patients dealing with depression and stress. Medical cannabis users suffering from PTSD and ADHD might have good use of the Glass Slipper too.
It can also be a good alternative for patients who are experiencing chronic pain that may be due to various types of health issues like muscle spasms and PMS. At the same time, it has the ability to stimulate appetite and promote better quality of sleep for the insomniacs.
Glass Slipper is considered an easy strain to grow, which makes it an ideal cannabis plant to cultivate for beginners. It could be planted outdoor that should ideally have a Mediterranean climate. Indoor, this plant could be grown using soil as a medium or hydroponics.
Breeders suggest that growers should train the plant by pruning and bending the branches at the early stages of its vegetative state. Also, it is best to trim the plant’s fan leaves that can block the light from reaching through the lower branches.
If grown indoors, the Glass Slipper’s flowering stage can take about 9 to 10 weeks to complete. Once the buds are ready for harvest, the expected indoor yield should reach 16 to 20 ounces per square meter.
Outdoor cultivation, on the other hand, will allow a flowering stage that could last until late September to early October. The expected yield should be about 24 ounces per plant.
