Cinderella 99 is an uber-hybrid that is said to have been engineered from seeds found in a 2 gram package of Jack Herer in an Amsterdam coffee shop. Despite its disputed and unclear heritage, there is no doubt about Cindy 99’s popularity and very definitely potency.

This supreme medical strain was developed by the “Brother’s Grimm” and is aptly nicknamed “Cindy” by its loyal fans. Cinderella 99 has a history that is veiled in mystery, however, it is believed that its original roots stem from two legendary strains in their own right: Jack Herer and Shiva Skunk.
