Are you seeking asylum from chronic pain? If so, Harlequin may be just what the doctor ordered. Unlike most high-CBD strains, Harlequin almost always develops a CBD:THC ratio of 5:2. This CBD dominant sativa hybrid provides the ability to stay focused and alert while still delivering pain relief.
Originally bred for making hashish, Harlequin is a cross between several strains – Colombian Gold, Thai and Swiss Landrace and an indica from Nepal.
The name, Harlequin, refers to the patterned costumes worn by the Italian clowns of the same title. It’s possible that the vivid pistils inspired this jovial name, but there are suggestions that it is due to the”patchwork genetics” that comprise this unique strain.
