Cinderella 99 - Hybrid
Cinderella 99 is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain that is known for her potent euphoric cerebral effects and sweet fruity flavors. Patients often report feeling dreamy and uplifted after use. This strain averages 18-22% THC, but the THC only tells a small portion of this strain’s story.
Terpene Profile and Effects
Cannabis has a notably strong unique aroma, and each individual strain has a different smell as well. The part of the cannabis plant that causes these different smells are the terpenes, aromatic molecules secreted inside the resin glands of the cannabis flowers. Terpenes not only provide a wide range of smells but can also accentuate the cannabinoid profile resulting in stronger and more focused physical and mental effects than the THC % would lead you to believe.
The primary terpenes found in Cinderella 99 include myrcene, limonene, and pinene.
Myrcene is the most abundant terpene in cannabis. The aroma is often described as earthy with musky notes, resembling cloves and sometimes even has a fruity, red grape-like smell. It has also been reported that it is useful in reducing inflammation and chronic pain.
Limonene is the second most abundant terpene in all cannabis strains. This is the terpene that gives cannabis a citrusy smell resembling that of lemons, which is no surprise as all citrus fruits contain large amounts of this compound. Limonene is known to improve mood and reduce stress. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties. In addition, research has shown it has a role in reducing tumor size.
Pinene terpenes, smelling strongly of pine trees where it can be found in large quantities, have an anti-inflammatory effect on humans. They can help improve airflow and respiratory functions, while also reducing the memory loss related to the use of THC. A strain rich in pinene can help with asthma, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and cancer.
