Harlequin is a unique hybrid strain in itself. It has a very impressive 5:2 CBD to THC ratio. This makes it well known as the strain that kills pain while providing just a gentle buzz, and not the harshness of being ‘stoned’ common with most other strains.
Harlequin is well known and renowned for its healing effects and very high CBD content between 8-16%. In comparison, its THC content averages between 4-7%. It produces a very slow and mellow high, with a razor sharp focus, while avoiding the pressure and lightheaded feeling associated with other sativas. Its CBD to THC ratio also means that less patients suffer from the anxiety and paranoia brought about by other strains. The strain provides a feeling of euphoria, albeit a light one. The strain is very useful in cases where users cannot afford to be too compromised emotionally or mentally, especially in situations where they have to work or interact with machines.
The strain was developed at the House of David Collective, by Mr. Green in the early 70s’. It was initially developed to be a hash producing crop, but plans were later squashed after it was discovered that the strain was so much more. The only word that can be used to describe the strain is ‘multinational’, taking its roots from Colombia, Switzerland, Nepal and Thailand. The strain is common in Denver at about half a dozen metro dispensaries. Visually, the strain is similar to the Poison Haze, possessing dense buds with green leaves and a fire red pistil color. Like other strains, it is also covered in trichomes. The strain is resistant to diseases and fungus and can be grown outdoors.
