Cinderella 99 (C99) is claimed by Female seeds to be the cannabis equivalent of the holy grail. This is because it manifestly displays attributes normally associated with land-race sativa strains and yet finishes flowering in approximately a quarter of the time.
Cinderella 99 is derived from the original brothers Grimm Cinderella 99; two pheno-types, a grapefruit and a pineapple, were crossed to produce this exceptionally fast-flowering sativa. Land-race sativas would take six months to flower before producing buds with an esoteric flavour and racy, psychedelic high. This C99 will flower in a mere 7 - 8 weeks. Plants are medium-size and grow to between 80 - 100 cm. tall indoors. Plants will benefit from LST or even topping if planted outside or in big containers indoors.
It can be switched into flowering mode after a vegetative growth time of just 4 weeks which is between 2 - 4 weeks faster than the original. It will even grow well in an outdoor environment in both Mediterranean and warm, dry, temperate climates. Yields are very high and both aroma and flavour are intensely fruity resembling grapefruit and pineapples. The high is delightful, very upbeat and uplifting with a nice, comfortable feeling which is both creative and happiness-inducing and one which isn't so draining as to leave you unable to do anything much.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
