Flavors / Aromas
joint pain and stiffness
Harlequin is a CBD-rich strain whose popularity predated the recent wave of non-psychoactive medical CBD strains. Harlequin is the sativa-dominant product of several different landrace strains: 1970s favorite Colombian Gold, Thai and Swiss sativa landraces, and a Nepali Indica variety. These patchwork genetics may account for the strain’s name -- “harlequin” originally referred to the brightly patterned costumes of traditional Italian clowns of the same name. Harlequin is approximately 75% sativa, although it lacks the characteristically strong cerebral sativa high due to the mitigating presence of CBD. The standard ratio of CBD to THC in Harlequin is 5:2. Harlequin has won multiple Cannabis Cup awards for its CBD content in both bud and concentrate form. The smooth smoke is not known to induce coughing, and it finishes with a rich, hashy aftertaste. Any mental effects take the form of an uplift in mood, conferring a mellow mindset and allowing for some mild anxiety relief. Some users report an increased sense of focus or a shift in perspective, but just as frequently, they’re able to pull themselves out of this altered state and closer to sobriety. Harlequin is known to offer pain relief from both mild and chronic conditions. It can alleviate the aches associated with joint pain and stiffness. It can also have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial as a medication for fibromyalgia and neuralgic pain. Additionally, Harlequin can relieve moderate nausea. This strain allows for sustained mental focus without a heavy body stone -- this makes it a versatile medicine that can be as easily used during the day or at night.
