Mild in Flavor, Mellow in Mind
Much like her name Harlequin Feminized is a veritable checkerboard of indigenous cannabis strains, mixing landraces Thai Sativa and Swiss Sativa with Colombian Gold and Nepali Indica to create an all-round winner. With a Cannabidiol (CBD) content of around 7%, this gal can provide relief from a variety of mental and physical ailments for between 2 and 4 hours at a time, making her a truly mighty medicinal marijuana.
You’ll find that this strain will give you enough of a buzz to take the rough edges off, but for the most part Harlequin Fem’s recreational value is fairly mild, since her 10% THC content is balanced out by her high CBD. A joint of this gorgeous ganja is enough to lift your mood and enliven you, but her best benefits lie elsewhere.
Refreshing and fruity, the tropical mango and citrus taste of Harlequin is typical of her other characteristics: mild, but memorable. It’s the sort of scent and flavor that wakes you up like a cool breeze when you step out of the door, and it’s just the right thing to get you going in the morning.
Harlequin Feminized is a choice strain for honing in your focus, clearing the mind and boosting mental clarity and physical vigor, but she’ll do so whilst keeping you mellow enough to get through the average workday. A joint of this stuff is a great option if you’ve got a big day ahead or need to be kept on your toes, as she’s all about positivity and productivity. As for pain, well she’s a dab hand with that too - a fruity bud that alleviates the symptoms of arthritis, migraine, multiple sclerosis and more - not to mention mental concerns such as anxiety and depression.
Since these seeds are all-fem, growing Harlequin is simplified to some trimming, some pruning and controlling her environment. A good indoor grow room setup will have you ready to go in no time, as she’s an easygoing treat to care for, with excellent yields in just 7 to 9 weeks of flowering.
Flavor and Fragrance of Harlequin Feminized
Much like her effects, Harlequin Fem is a revitalizing, enlivening strain that jolt starts your senses into action as her scents and flavors hit the tongue. Her fragrance is somewhat earthy and aromatic, hinting at mango and citrus notes, while the taste is sweeter and more tropical. Overall, this strain beautifully balances on the tightrope between sweet and sour, making her a particularly refreshing awakening for the senses.
Definitely an excellent strain for daytime use, the buzz produced by Harlequin Fem is mild enough for you to pair it with a variety of activities - including your day job. This is a strain that’s great for keeping you awake and alert by helping you to hone in your focus and stay clear-headed.
As an added benefit, Harlequin will quickly improve your mood and positivity levels, which combined with that sense of focus makes this ganja gal an ideal partner when you’ve got a busy day to keep on top of.
Since she’s also high in CBD, you can expect that smoking a joint of this stuff will both calm you and uplift you, giving you the much-needed chill and focus to make it through dull, arduous tasks without breaking a sweat.
Medical Uses of Harlequin Feminized
Though Harlequin Feminized is both refreshing in flavor and handy to get you through the workday, her most common usage is for medicinal purposes, which is no surprise when you consider that high CBD content. Due to this, and her low THC levels (around 10%), you’ll find that this isn’t a cannabis strain that gets you particularly high, since the former tends to cancel out the psychoactive effects of the latter.
Harlequin Feminized tends to be particularly effective at alleviating psychological concerns, utilizing her anxiolytic and antidepressant properties to mitigate the symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression and even bipolar disorder. A joint of this ganja will lift your mood and induce a mellow, pain-free mindset that energizes and reduces feelings of sluggishness and fatigue.
Since she’s an effective strain for soothing pain, Harlequin Fem is also suitable for the symptomatic relief of migraines, cramps, PMS, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and fibromyalgia to name a few - and all the while you’ll feel focused and sober, able to take on everyday life painlessly.
As with most strains, there’s a chance of mild dry eyes and cottonmouth, and as such we recommend consuming Harlequin in low doses.
Growing Harlequin Feminized
You’d be excused for thinking that Harlequin Feminized is an Indica strain, since she looks much like one - but you’d be wrong. Her long, slender leaves are a dead giveaway if you know what you’re looking for, but otherwise she’s a small, bushy sort of strain that can get fairly wide.
It’s exactly this form that makes this strain prone to accumulating moisture, which of course can lead to mold, pathogens and pests if you’re not careful. However if you make sure unnecessary leaves are regularly trimmed away, and keep her branches well pruned, you can ensure Harlequin thrives - and she’ll get more light and airflow this way too.
Optimal conditions for this particular cannabis strain are similar to most others - a warm environment of 21° to 26°C, and a relative humidity (RH) level of between 40% to 50%. Keeping this climate steady is key to boosting resin and bud production, then when she begins to flower, lower the humidity to between 30% and 40% for the final two weeks.
Harlequin Fem will do well in a Sea of Green (SoG) setup, which will make good use of your space whilst boosting yield too. After 7 to 9 weeks of flowering, you can expect a decent 400 grams per plant of vivid green and sticky nugs.
If you’re lucky enough to live in a Mediterranean-esque climate such as California, Spain, Australia or Italy, then go ahead and grow Harlequin Feminized outdoors. These sorts of environments are havens for ganja growers, and in the northern hemisphere you can expect 400 grams per plant by mid-October.
A canny wee cannabis lass of 10% Cannabidiol. Try saying that ten times fast - or succeed, with a joint of Harlequin Feminized to calm you down a mellow you right out. With CBD levels that vary from 7% up to 10%, it’s no wonder that this stuff can ease pain, soothe the brain and keep you going all in one.
Refreshingly tropical and fruity, this is a mild-flavored strain that impresses nonetheless, cleansing the palate in much the same way that she cleanses the mind.
Balancing low THC with high CBD means that she’s not the first choice of cannabis for recreational users, but if you want a low heady buzz that enlivens you enough to make it through the day, Harlequin Fem will do the trick.
Mitigator of stress, depression and anxiety due to her heady anxiolytic and antidepressant properties, this ganja goes the extra mile to boost focus and energize even while she relieves you of aches and pains, too.
If Harlequin sounds like the strain for you, make sure you try home growing with all-fem seeds that practically take care of themselves. Ample supplies are ensured in just 7 to 9 weeks of flowering, provided you keep her well trimmed and tended, in a warm and humid environment.
