Princess 75 is a creation of Mr. Soul, the legendary cannabis cultivator and founder of the Brothers Grimm Seed Company. Mr. Soul recalls buying a 2g bag of Jack Herer buds in the Sensi Smile café in Amsterdam. Despite being told that the buds were sinsemilla (without seeds), he says that he was “pleasantly surprised to find about a dozen seeds in the bud.”
Mr. Soul chose a half dozen of these seeds to try and grow. He says, “of the six seeds that I attempted to germinate, every one was successful, and I got a 50% male/female ratio.”
Read on to find out more about what happened next and how the Princess 75 strain came into being.
What Is the Princess 75 Strain?
The successful germination of those six seeds ultimately led to the creation of the Princess 75 strain. Mr. Soul describes the breeding process he went through as follows:
- Princess (Jack Herer) x (Shiva Skunk x Princess’s Brother) = Princess 50
- Princess (Jack Herer) x Princess 50 = Princess 75
However, Mr. Soul didn’t stop there; he went on to create some more successful strains, including:
- Princess (Jack Herer) x Princess 75 = Cinderella 88
- Princess (Jack Herer) x Cinderella 88 = Cinderella 99
Cinderella 99 and another crossbreed of the Princess 75 strain, namely the Apollo 13 cannabis strain, have become successful strains in their own right.
Both the Cinderella 99 and Apollo 13 strains were featured in High Times magazine articles. According to Mr. Soul, they were listed as “being among the top 10 most favored varieties of all time.” Both strains have been used by other breeders to create numerous award-winning hybrids.
The Princess (Jack Herer) strain has a powerful high, which has been described as being almost psychedelic. One downside is that it is known to lead to feelings of paranoia if over-consumed. Likewise, Princess 75 is very heady and overwhelming due to both the cerebral nature of its high and its potency.
Smokers of the Princess 75 strain describe its effects as 80% cerebral and 20% physical.

Curing Princess 75 Buds
Experienced growers of the Princess 75 strain recommend that you cure the buds after harvesting for even better results. Begin by drying the buds. You can do this either by hanging them upside down or placing them on a drying rack for 7-10 days.
The buds must be completely dry to prevent them from developing mold during the next stage of curing. When the buds are completely dry, place them in an airtight container such as a wide-mouthed mason jar. Seal the lid tightly before storing them in a cool, dry place, such as a closet.
During the first week, it’s essential to open the lids of the jars at least three times a day for five to ten minutes. By doing this, you allow any moisture to escape and the buds to breathe. After the first week, you’ll only have to do this a few times a week to prevent mold from forming.
After two or three weeks, the Princess 75 buds will be sufficiently cured. You can continue to cure the buds for up to four to six weeks if you don’t mind waiting. You’ll get even better results and smoother smoke.
