A great introduction to a Cindarella 99 for people who can't handle the super rushy feelings it can sometimes give, this hybrid has a little bit of something for everyone. The absolutely beautiful trich-laden appearance hinted at the potency that lay in wait, but not the complex interactions of Indica and Sativa going on at all times. The strangely focused and quick movement paired with the calmed and warm body was pretty unique and thoroughly enjoyable. This was a perfectly-grown sample that holds a ton of potential — if the taste can get dialed in a bit better, it will really be something.
Absolutely loaded with trichomes (especially the leaf surfaces, which looked white), this sample was an attractive medium strong green with standard orange pistils. It was a rather dense yet slender nug, and it had a little bit of give to it when squeezed rather than breaking apart.
Musky almost rotten fruit smell in the jar, but it changes a bit after the grind to a clearly pineapple-tinged scent, but one that was lacking the normal 'bite' that is associated with a Cinderella 99… in all though, very appealing and rather pungent.
An ethereal pineapple sweetness hangs at the back of the throat, but other than that, it's mostly just hashy-tasting and not particularly pungent. Though moderately expansive, it wasn't harsh at all, but burned to a mottled gray and black ash, indicating it might've benefited from a more thorough flush.
A very direct and focused energy to start, with quick, precise movement and a strong mind-body connection — there was a tendency to feel almost jittery, but that subsided after the first 15 minutes or so. The divergent hybrid nature of this strain was felt immediately, with potent head effects and that lovely warm radiating Afghani body feeling paired throughout the experience. A calm energy with a strong eye presence was the enduring effect of this strain — the Black Domina seems to really calm down the C-99 and keeps the edge off of it that makes many people nervous about C-99. That influence grew stronger as it went on, making this one a bit of an up-then-down experience.
