A rare strain of high CBD cannabis, Harlequin is a potent medicinal that offers chronic pain relief. Bred from high-elevation parents from Columbia, Thailand, Switzerland, and Nepal, its medicinal effects far outweigh the mild high resulting from the low THC content. Harlequinʼs sativa-dominant characteristics allow for alertness while relieving pain, often for one to eight hours. A good choice for novice users seeking powerful pain relief.

  • Indoor flowering time: 60-70 days

Comparatively, this amazing hybrid begins her flowering cycle early. Dime-sized buds are oftentimes visible after just 2 weeks into Harlequin producing the first buds. Additionally, growers should take caution in the last week or two before they harvest this plant. The flowering tops become so heavy and buds so tri-chrome-covered that the colas will require extra support to keep from collapsing under all this added weight. An added frustration - but one that is well worth the wait - is that Harlequin usually takes between 2 and 3 weeks to finish the curing process. Classification: sativa (75%) / indica (25%). Growing Environment: indoor recommended. Flowering Time: 60-70 days. Garden Ability: beginner to intermediate.


She needs about 60 to 70 days indoors to finish her full flowering. She sets flowers fairly quickly compared to other strains. I see fingertip-sized bud set at two weeks of flower - compared to pencil-eraser size in other plants at the same two weeks of flower. She really needs some way to support the colas the last few weeks because the trichomes and flowering tops get so heavy. Along those same lines, in a drying room where strains like Blueberry or Bubba Kush take seven to 10 days for drying before curing, the Harlequin can take as long as three weeks. She can be completely obscured by 'sugar' to where she looks "frosted".

Harlequin 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%.

Harlequin, the first high-CBD strain discovered in the U.S., is among the rarest strains on the planet. Created from three sativas—an early-ʻ70s Colombian Gold male, a Thai from the mountains near Laos, and a Swiss native land race—combined with an indica from Nepalʼs Mustang State, Harlequin was initially bred to be a hash-producer. Its creator, Mr. Green of the House of David Collective, was prompted to have its CBD levels tested when some of his friends reported that while they loved the smell, taste, and frosty appearance of the strain, it didnʼt get them very high.

Additional Information

Harlequin is preceded by a Thai cannabis strain, a Swiss one, and a Columbian Gold marijuana strain. While Harlequin is notably low in THC content (lab testing in California showed around 7%), it is considerably high in CBD (usually showing results between 5% and 9%). Cannabidiol content this high in strains throughout dispensaries is considered somewhat rare in recent time, making this unique strain sought after for it's pain relieving qualities and noticeable cerebral effects.
