Awakening & Enlivening Citrus Orange Seeds
Though most of us prefer not to give up that first cup of coffee in the morning, you might reconsider once you’ve experienced the effects of Orange Velvet crossed with Cinderella 99, and the seriously enlivening and energizing high this cross provides.
Fragrant right from the grow room, the refreshing and awakening orange tang of this weed is tempered beautifully by an earthen note that impedes her from overpowering tokers, so that once inhaled you can relish the sweet-sour citrus notes on your tongue.
Though the high is gentler than you might expect for an 18% THC strain, Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 still induces a mental buzz and euphoric kick that’s ideal for clearing the mind, boosting focus and adding a little energy to your day.
As a medical strain, this ganja goes the distance to alleviate psychological concerns, a surefire way to relieve stress, feelings of anxiety, and the low mood associated with depression. As a pain reliever, this herb is an awesome option for aching muscles, and aids with the symptoms of arthritis and cramps.
Growing this herb is fairly straightforward, and her yields are decent regardless of your level of experience and the techniques you choose to train her with - if at all. However, those with a little more know-how will find this herb responds well to topping to control her height, and after removing any males from the batch, can pretty much leave her to it in a controlled environment.
Flavor and Fragrance of Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 Regular
With overwhelming overtones of orange to ensnare the senses even before you light up, Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 would be almost overpoweringly tangy were it not for the sweet earth notes that perfectly temper this fruity weed. Still, she’s pungent as hell, and once lit, those sour orange notes only strengthen, leaving behind a sweet after taste on the tongue.
As instantly awakening and refreshing as her tangy orange odor might be, Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 Reg is a littler gentler when it comes to her high. Uplifting your mood to invite a pleasant, euphoric buzz, this herb also promotes mental clarity and awakens your creative side.
With an upbeat attitude and a mind full of positivity, you’ll find engaging in tasks seems suddenly more appealing - particularly as your focus hones in and strengthens.
Around thirty minutes after taking your first toke, you’ll start to feel a sense of calmness creep over your body. This will begin as a gentle, soothing sensation that works to loosen tight muscles and soften your limbs to melt away tension while continuing to enhance your mood.
In smaller doses, this physically relaxing high works in perfect synchronicity with the mental buzz Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 induces, making for a Sativa-led feeling that doesn’t slow you down.
Toking a little more will increase this feeling’s intensity, and can lead to a heavier feeling of laziness and possibly even couchlock - but will also heighten the senses, brightening colors and making sounds seem distorted. And of course, with intensity comes the munchies - the hunger pangs will set in and grow more intense as this strain’s high peaks.
Overconsuming, or toking when you’re sensitive to THC, can lead to adverse effects. Alongside the usual dry, red eyes and cottonmouth (easily alleviated by remaining hydrated), this herb can induce dizziness, increase feelings of anxiety or heighten paranoia.

For patients with joint pain, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, headaches, migraines, backache, muscle spasms and cramps, the muscle-relaxing properties of this herb can help to reduce pain.
Growing Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 Regular Seeds
Tall and slender, Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 Regular is an attractive-looking specimen of light green, with golden undertones to her buds which, when combined with her sparkling coating of trichomes, gives her the glowing appearance of topaz from afar.
Indoor growers should take into consideration that these plants can reach up to 160 centimeters tall when setting up a space for this vertical grower, as though medium-sized she takes up a fair amount of space. If you’re familiar with topping techniques, however, this can be utilized in the third week of her vegetative state to help control that height - in addition to increasing the number of budding sites.
Those with a little more experience cultivating cannabis will find that Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 responds well to a Screen of Green (SCROG) training technique, where the branches are spread to form an even upper canopy and the lower nodes are distanced from the light source and thereby prevented from producing buds. This way, the plant can more suitably direct her energy and nutrients to the budding sites nearer the top of the plant, where there is plenty of light.
As these seeds are regular, growers will need to identify the gender of these plants during the pre-flowering stage. The chances of males in the batch are 50/50, and when found, should be segregated from the female plants to prevent pollination if you're growing for consumption.
Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 Reg flowers for around 10 to 12 weeks, before yielding a harvest of 350 grams per square meter.
For outdoor growers, this plant prefers a Mediterranean climate where the weather is warm with plenty of sunshine. Though her frame is thin, she’s actually a sturdy specimen and can hold her own in strong winds - though keep an eye out for adverse conditions. You should be ready to harvest by the end of October, or early November, and yield around 350 grams of nugs per plant.
A cross between the well-loved but discontinued Orange Velvet and the eternally classic Cinderella 99, this pot is the perfect replacement for that morning caffeine hit, invigorating your taste buds and your mind with orange and earth notes that leave you clear headed, alert and upbeat.
Orange Velvet x Cinderella 99 Reg is excellent recreationally and as a wake-and-bake strain, but still boasts pain-relieving properties to alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and muscle cramps alongside a potent capability to reprieve tokers from low mood and anxiety, wiping out stress within a few tokes.
For cannabis cultivators new to growing their own weed, you’ll find that in the right environment, this ganja grows tall and lanky and left alone will do just fine. Yet, if you’re looking to boost yields, topping and a SCROG technique can work in your favor if you have the experience to properly carry them out, and this gorgeous amber specimen will soon mature and flourish to leave you with plenty of tasty nugs.
