It was one of the first strains in female seeds that was launched at the birth of Female Seeds in 2003. But Ferry actually first started working on this strain back in 1999 and the first batch he produced of this amazing variety were regular seeds for a different seedbank. Years of experimenting with the original Brothers Grimm C99 led to the creation of our very own C99. The origins are difficult to establish, but it was a long flowering Sweet Tai landrace crossed with a short flowering Sativa. Most likely, the Durban Poison.
The current batch we are selling was backcrossed to stabilize the genetics with two specially selected C99 phenotypes, a Grapefruit and the legendary Pineapple pheno. The result is the holy grail of cannabis strains, a fast flowering Sativa that has the taste and high of an exceptionally sweet landrace Sativa. A landrace that would normally take up to a half a year of flowering. Yet our C99 flowers in just 8 to 9 weeks. Our C99 has an unusually high CBD content for a Sativa strain. It actually resulted in a new chemotype, CBD-Sativa.
Basic / Breeders Info
This C99 is a Sativa dominant hybrid and has 2 phenos. One is slightly more compact and the other stretches slightly more. The C99 forms one giant, candle shaped bud with several smaller nugs on lower branches. All very dense and frosty with resin.
One phenotype has that wonderful grapefruit smell. The other phenotype has that legendary, sought-after pineapple smell. On the whole, a very nice balanced taste between fruity sweet and pleasantly acidic. The high is a typically Sativa; a warm, glowing, happy and uplifting effect. This high is long-lasting and stimulates the mind providing you with plenty of creative energy.

Specifically bred for indoor gardens, Female Seeds’ version of C99 is even faster in vegetative growth (ready to flower just four weeks from germination) and quicker to finish than it’s predecessors, finishing in just 7-8 weeks indoors, and giving an early harvest outdoors or in greenhouses, where it performs very well. It grows vigorously with a bushy structure, good branching, and it stays compact, at around 80-100cm indoors, so headroom won’t be a problem.
The original Cinderella 99 from Brothers Grimm Seeds was the result of a painstaking breeding process over several generations, backcrossing Princess, a very special female clone from a seed found in a coffeeshop bud of Jack Herer, each time selecting to improve flowering time and potency.
C99 from Female Seeds is the feminised reproduction of one of the best-loved cannabis strains of recent years, otherwise known as Cinderella 99 or Cindy 99.
This hugely popular version of C99 is a vigorous, fast-flowering, sativa-dominant hybrid and was created by combining the two main phenotypes from the original Cinderella 99 seeds, namely Grapefruit and Pineapple, both famous and named for their intensely fruity flavours.
In a surprisingly short time, you can expect to harvest high yields of large, thick, sticky and sugar-coated buds with delightfully strong aromas and sweet flavours of citrus and tropical fruits. The effect when consumed is powerful and reminiscent of a landrace sativa, uplifting, euphoric, electric, active, creative and clear – characteristics difficult to find in fast-flowering strains, which is what makes C99 a holy grail variety for both growers and smokers.
With it’s highly-valued sativa high, it’s rapid flowering and amazing flavour at a great price, you really can’t go wrong with C99!

C99 is a potent and long lasting, happy, uplifting strain with great reported medicinal, anti-stress and anti-depression qualities. The original C99 lineage was created from Princess (Jack Herer F2 from Sensi Seeds) x (Jack Herer x Shiva Skunk), “cubed” by back crossing over 3 generations. There are two main phenotypes of Cinderella 99; grapefruit and pineapple. The Brothers Grimm had a favourite pheno that was known as the “Evil Pineapple” pheno and has an almost rotten meat aroma with sharp fruity nuances. The flavour of Cindy strains leans towards having acrid citrus notes and floral touches but are Haze dominant. Generally, the “Pineapple” has a complex rotten fruit with floral hints flavour, and the “Grapefruit” is similar in flavour profile to New York City Diesel, with a sharp and musky citrus flavour.
