Remedy Strains 101: Harlequin

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 the relief you’re looking for.

Appearance

Harlequin is known to be a very dense strain, with thick nugs all around. Colorful hairs ranging from bright orange to dark red are found sprinkled about the vivid, kelly green body. Topped off with tremendous trichomes, Harlequin is a beauty to behold.

Aroma

Harlequin boasts an earthy and uplifting aroma, starting out with woody notes and a hint of oak.

Fruity and sweet scents come next, recalling mango and pineapple. Harlequin’s fragrance ends with a subtle and smooth mint essence.

Flavor

The rich, earthy notes are echoed in Harlequin’s flavor profile. To help balance out the flavor, sweet fruity and floral tones are what comes next. Harlequin is then finished off with a slight hint of peppermint.

Effects

Harlequin is most known for its ability to relax without sedation, and to relieve without intoxication. An incredibly mild body stone brings along a relaxing and calming cerebral high. It is one of the most effective strains for both chronic pain and anxiety, as CBD counteracts the paranoia of THC while amplifying the painkilling properties. Harlequin is most used by patients suffering from anxiety, chronic pain, and epilepsy.

What’s In A Name?

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.

Remedy trims all flower by hand, in order to preserve flower and trichome integrity.
