        Cinderella 99 Strain Review

        Excellent beginner cultivar

        Rated 5 out of 5
        13 October 2022

        Very easy to grow, early harvest helps avoid bud rot And it is very pest resistant. Sweet fruity taste with good pain relief and a euphoric feeling but still able To focus. Outdoor plant reached over 8′ even after aggressive trimming with high yields. Very nice, my favorite. You will not be disapointed.

        1. Just about to harvest one . She is the biggest plant I have ever seen and will give me about 2.5 pounds of crystal coated buds . Very resilient to pests and molds but finishing a little slower than expected. Still very happy though

        2. I’m currently growing Cindy 99 and in 3rd week of’s got a ton of budsites and beautiful .no problems to’s about 6 ft..I topped at 4th node and developed 2 long and tall main colas and surrounded by bushy buds everywhere..very pleased .ten yr old seeds and took near 2 weeks to germinate .wish I could find this exact seeds again

        3. Running alot of c99 hybrids. With chemd, blueberry, sour d,godbud, 60-63 day flowers. Many very special

        4. I’ve grown c99 for 4years. She’s very consistent, clones root in a week, turns quickly(7-10days) in 12/12. Effects are phenomenal for all day use. Soil brings out her flavor.
