Thanks GardenofAutos for sharing the bean!

For anyone new to my diaries, my grows are done on a low budget. I try to keep energy costs low so I am using inexpensive well rated LEDs. I’m growing in a spare shower. I use a homemade bucket swamp cooler inefficiently to lower heat and add humidity when needed. I’m in the southern california premium oceanside agricultural zone so my climate is excellent but I don’t own my land so I can’t grow outside. I am growing under California prop 215 as a medical patient. The only splurge I have made was on the air pots, which I felt was a good investment, and I have a variety of brands—there are good deals on these on Amazon. I also got a carbon filter and fan but I only use it during the stinkiest time of flowering.
I’m really excited to grow this. I felt resigned to buy sativa leaning hybrids or sativas because I really don’t have the lights or the space to grow it, but this one sounds suitable as a more compact growing flower. It also sounds like a great daytime strain for me because it’s high in CBD and good for neuropathic pain.

I germinated using a nonstick surgical sponge soaked in purified water and wrung out gently, sandwiching seeds between 2 layers and then sandwiching this between 2 cheese plates. (It was handy—I was looking for cotton pads but I am sticking with these sponges because they worked so well). Once a taproot emerged I moved the seedling into a jiffy pellet but because these dry out so fast, once the seedling popped up, I slipped the pellet and seedling into a 1 L (nearly solo cup sized) airpot filled with rinsed Black Gold seedling mix comprised of canadian peat moss and perlite with a little compost. She seems like a happy little princess so far. She’s in with the big girls for 12 hours while they finish up and gets additional time under a CFL for just the next week until the big girls get harvested.

From Female Seeds:
Genetic lineage: C99 x C99
Indoor: 8-9 weeks
Outdoor: YES. See page … for suitable Outdoor zones worldwide and corresponding harvest periods
Height:Indoor: 80-100 cm | Outdoor: 150-200 cm
Yield: Indoor: 500-600 g/m² | Outdoor: 400 g/plant
Taste/smell: Sweet and fruity smell of pineapple and grapefruit
Effect: Warm, glowing, happy and uplifting Sativa high fueling creativity
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. The C99 does not stretch too much and grows like a dream, very vigorous. If you really want to maximize yield, we suggest you veg the C99 for four weeks. Outdoor it stretches more than average in the flowering stage reaching a height of between 2 to 3 metres.

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.
Topping this strain or LST is not a problem for the C99. She is also a great strain for outdoor finishing mid-October in more temperate and warmer climates. The C99 is very mold resistant outdoors due to its bud structure. Therefore high humidity is not an issue for the C99.

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.

Medicinal:
Neuropathic pain management (class A)
Relief of symptoms for Crohn’s disease and Colitis Ulcerosa (Class A)
Relief of symptoms of insomnia (Class B)
Relief of symptoms of spasms and MS due to its CBD content (Class C)

I like your choice of strain, it seems like it would suit my medical problems to.
I going to liten what you think about it when you have tested it. And if it works for you i will grow it.
Good luck and i hope this is the medicine for you.

@CBD_Sweden, I think it’s great to have a variety because I think you get used to one strain and tolerant to its effects. That’s been my experience. I do really like CBD heavy sativas for daytime. I think we both probably benefit from some of the same medical strains from the sound of it. <hugs>
