The high: Harlequin has vast applications and affects people in very diverse ways. Many patients are blown away by it—often for its therapeutic benefits.

The smell: On the live plant, Harlequin smells reminiscent of musky, sweet, sugar loaf pineapple. Mango-esque, tropical fruit fluffs up the melon and cantaloupe scents. The cured bud brings out deep currents of slightly-mentholated, overripe plum.

Harlequin: The Strain That Delivers a Warm, Glowy Feeling

Cannabis consumers overwhelmingly report that they experience no paranoia or anxiety when they ingest Harlequin, and some say it even cures anxiety and paranoia brought on by other, more THC-rich strains. For those who think cannabis is too strong these days, and are prone to nervousness, anxiety, and lethargy as side effects, Harlequin may seem ideal.

The grow: This is a fabulously frosty, clone-only strain that flowers quickly and requires about 60 to 70 days to finish indoors. Unlike most strains, an extended flowering time for Harlequin can actually diminish its effectiveness, because CBD degrades earlier than THC. Thus Harlequin generally tests at around 7% CBD at 10 weeks indoors while at 8 weeks, it can deliver CBD levels as high as 11.9%.

Meanwhile, still other patients maintain that whatever ephemeral effect Harlequin may have is eclipsed by its medicinal qualities. Perhaps the group that will derive the most benefit from teh strain are those using cannabis mainly for medicinal purposes. If the primary goal is to get rid of a headache, relieve pain and stress, treat a chronic illness, or keep nausea at bay without the side effect of an altered consciousness, Harlequin is a worthy contender.

Harlequin is a sativa-dominant strain known for producing equal ratios of CBD and THCA.

Top reported effects

First bred by Mr. Green from the House of David Collective, the strain is a cross between three landrace strains, a Nepali Indica and two landrace strains from Thailand and Switzerland, which were then pollinated by a Colombian Gold male.

The strain was originally cultivated for making hash/concentrates, but rather than creating a resinous strain that was high in THC, the breeder ended up creating a strain that gained notoriety for its elevated CBD content.

Harlequin usually clocks in at a 5:2 CBD to THC ratio with 4-7% THC and 8-16% CBD. Harlequin is sativa-dominant strain that boasts an impressive genetic lineage: Colombian Gold, Thai and Swiss landrace strains, and a Nepali indica. Given the influence of sativa properties, Harlequin provides characterist effects that ease anxiety, while increasing alertness. The nice balance of cannabinoids makes it a great candidate to use Harlequin to treat anxiety and pain.

What do consumers say about Harlequin?

But, thegoob0615 notes Harlequin does profoundly increase appetite (which could be a good or bad thing): “The only downside is sometimes I get wicked munchies.”

“I. Love. Harlequin. I recently “detoxed” from prescription migraine medications. I was taking 15 plus imitrex a month. I saw several doctors and they were all like ‘keep taking them! It’s not a problem.’ What a bunch of crap. The imitrex and topamax (thank god I was only on that briefly) were both causing tons of rebound headaches. That was a few months ago…I’m now back to my “normal” level of migraines. 3-4 a month. So if you’re in that boat “ABANDON SHIP!” 🙂“I’ve tried a couple other strains, but for my migraines this one is a lifesaver. I was told by my local place, by a fellow migraine sufferer, that Indicas with a 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD work best. I found they work ok, but maybe that info will help somebody else. I’ve also found this strain works well for PMS and cramps. Not sure if it’s the best for that though, just the best I’ve found so far.
