A True CBD Queen
Any strain that’s crossed with Harlequin is going to have high expectations placed upon it, and with a parent that stands alone as a CBD powerhouse, it’s no wonder. Harlequin x Bubba Kush Regular takes this high level of cannabidiol (CBD) and combines it with the hybrid strain Bubba Kush to provide a strain of immense therapeutic value that can clear the head, focus the mind and sedate the body - and all that in one joint.
Palatable in flavor and fragrance, this strain is mild and delicate to the senses, mixing earthen woodiness with sweet and faintly fruity notes.
Recreationally, there’s little to be said about Harlequin x Bubba Kush, as her THC levels are low and her high is fairly mild. For beginners and those new to consuming cannabis, she’ll likely leave you with a faintly euphoric feeling that opens up the mind and calms the body - but this strain is more about the medicinal benefits than the high she induces.
And those medicinal benefits are abundant. Combining a low-level euphoria with potent anxiolytic, antipsychotic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, Harlequin x Bubba Kush Reg is capable of benefiting sufferers of a variety of ailments, from the physical to the psychological.
Take heart! All that excellence comes with ease of growing, and this ganja is easy to handle even for beginners since she’s small, stocky and content to grow indoors or out. Maintaining a healthy environment for Harlequin x Bubba Kush is all that’s required of growers, and in only 8 to 9 weeks your reward will be a bounty of 500 to 550 grams of buds.

Although very gentle, for those new to the cannabis community Harlequin x Bubba Kush Reg can still have adverse effects. Newbies are more prone to experiencing mild cottonmouth, dry eyes and even a little dizziness if they do not approach with caution.
Medical Uses of Harlequin x Bubba Kush Regular

Growing Harlequin x Bubba Kush Regular
Small and stocky, Harlequin x Bubba Kush Regular will grow to no more than 150cm during her life cycle, but her short and bushy shape makes her an ideal specimen for a Sea of Green (SoG) setup, which will do wonders for your final yield.
This strain will do well in pots with organic soil, but for truly explosive growth we recommended hydroponics and 1000 watts of light to imitate that all-important sunshine. Some stress training could also be a good idea to improve that final harvest, around the latter part of the vegetation period until the early flowering stage - this is also a great time to weed out the males from the females, as these seeds are regular.
Harlequin x Bubba Kush will mature in around 8 to 9 weeks, and once she’s done growing you can expect a plentiful yield of 500 to 550 grams per square meter, on average.
If you prefer to grow your cannabis out of doors, a warm dry climate is ideal for this strain - she needs plenty of light, but make sure she’s somewhere with some shade, too. Outdoors, you can expect a harvest of up to 600 grams of buds per plant, ready to chop down around the beginning of October.
