White 99

White 99 is a sativa-dominant hybrid made by crossing two polar opposite parents: Cinderella 99 and The White. The potent hybrid cross has an average THC level of around 20%-25%, giving rise to the strain’s potency. Although this potent strain’s creators are unknown, it remains popular among recreational users. Recreational users often enjoy this strain during the daytime due to its ability to increase focus and creativity. This strain is more suited to more experienced users with higher tolerance due to its potency and the skill required to grow it.

Its cannabidiol (CBD) content is extremely low, with maximum levels of less than 1%. This makes the strain popular predominantly among recreational rather than medical marijuana patients.

White 99 has flavonoids to thank for its citrusy aromas. Users note pleasant fresh citrus flavors, including orange and lemon, and pine flavors on the exhale. It may be appealing to those who may not like the aroma or taste of other cannabis strains.

Terpenes

The strain’s terpenes are shown to have potential therapeutic effects.

For example, the dominant terpene, limonene, has shown potential in treating heartburn, while beta-caryophyllene has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Myrcene, a common terpene, has also been shown to be a potential alleviator of pain, making it an option for those seeking relief from chronic pain. It’s important to note that terpenes’ levels may not reach sufficient levels for producing these effects on their own — cannabinoids and flavonoids also help contribute to terpenes’ effects in what is known as the “entourage effect.”

Effects

White 99s has been reported to have the following effects:

  • Cerebral
  • Creativity
  • Focus

The following adverse effects have also been reported:

  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia

Due to its high THC content, White 99 is more suited to experienced users. Users enjoy a cerebral high, which takes a few minutes to kick in and roughly 10 minutes to peak. At its peak, users will likely experience increased focus and creativity. Although the high produces little to no increase in physical energy, it’s still enjoyed as a daytime strain due to its powerful, uplifting effects.
Although an enjoyable strain for experienced users, novice users may find the effects overwhelming. Many new users have noted feeling anxious or even paranoid if taken in high doses. It’s also essential to give this strain time to take effect.

Even experienced users may fall into the trap of smoking more of this strain before it has had time to kick in, leading to potential adverse effects from smoking too much. Both novice and experienced users may experience negative side effects common to many strains, including dry mouth, eyes, and dizziness.

Medical Applications

Although a THC-rich strain, White 99 has some potential for medicinal use.

Dosing

Growing

White 99 isn’t the first choice for many novice growers; it can be slightly more on the challenging side to grow. And even if successful, it has relatively low yields. In saying that, this strain can be grown from seed indoors and outdoors, giving some flexibility to growers. The plant has distinct vibrant green buds with yellow hairs, making it a visually appealing strain.

Height

White 99 reaches between 2 to 2.6 feet in height when grown indoors. If grown outdoors, the plant usually grows taller, reaching upwards of 3 feet.

Humidity and Temperature

White 99 grows best at around 65% relative humidity. It also enjoys warmer temperatures, upwards of 68 degrees Fahrenheit at night and 68-86 degrees Fahrenheit during the day.

Flowering

The flowering period begins at approximately eight to nine weeks, and flowering lasts between 42 and 50 days. At this time, the yield, if grown indoors, is around 5.6 ounces per plant. If grown outdoors, the White 99 strain yield is significantly higher, around 10.5 ounces per plant. These yields are remarkably lower than many other strains, making it a less popular strain for beginner growers or those seeking bumper yields. 

The timing of harvest is essential to maximize terpene and THC content. The harvesting time is around October, but milky-white trichomes on the buds tell you when the buds are ready to harvest. This is inconsistent with the signs on other strains, indicating their readiness for harvest with yellow trichomes.
