    High CBD strains are truly remarkable. They do a great job of alleviating my pain. They also deliver the nausea-killing effects of THC without the stony or racy side effects because the CBD is so effective at keeping your mind straight. There is a buzz, but it is very energetic and productive.

    Perfect medical strain

    Wow…this strain hit me hard. I smoke about once a week and this one came on strong. Great body high. Pretty strong for the newbies out there. This strain is definitely for the vets. Peace.

    Stronger than most guys on here would think.

    Tested at around 6% THC, and 8% CBD, I initially thought I would need a lot of this stuff to get high. Picked up a gram from Berkeley Patients Group and gave it a try, three bowls and I was pretty medicated.

    The only difference between this and other strong sativas or indicas, is the anxiety level is much lower on this. Almost no anxiety at all but it did kick in a couple of times, I wont lie, this strain is not completely anxiety free, especially if you smoke a lot of it.

    Good for relaxing and music, and the taste is phenomenal, very earthy and sweet. If they a hookah flavor of Harlequin I would totally smoke it, the taste is awesome and smells like your smoking sugary sunflowers or something.

    This is a pretty good strain. I’ve been sitting here hitting it in a bong. My pain is not gone but the level of pain has come down. The high on the other hand don’t last to long. I feel it on every hit i take but once I get up and start moving around like dishes or laundry the high is gone. But my pain level is still low. This is a nice weed to smoke if you have stuff you got to do and to reduce your pain level.

    Smoking Harlequin for the first time. Vaped my first couple of bowls, which definitely brought out the pleasant taste. Like many reports, high doesn’t necessarily last that long but it is uplifting. Great if you’ve got stuff to get done and don’t be fooled by the low THC/high CBD ratio…she still gets the job done!

    I’ve been buying the Harlequin hash from the city of angels dispensary in south lake tahoe. This is the best medicine I can get my hands on. A complete body high, great taste, and gives me a relaxed feeling. Normally sativas give me anxiety but the CBDs work wonders from a medicinal standpoint.

    This strain is amazing with its high CBD to THC ratio. In fact, I have never come across a strain like this that just works well without getting high. My anxiety is lifted, and walking around the neighborhood was enough to make me happy.. it’s amazing! It also allowed me to work on my homework without getting worried about it.. I think this is a very good strain for those with ADHD as well!

    I am a guy in my 40s who works in the corporate world, I can’t be crazy high during the day, nor do I want to be. I am transitioning off of pain pills for chronic back pain.

    As a new MMJ patient, and new to MJ in general, I believe this is a perfect strain to use during the day.

    There is no rush after smoking, I just “feel better” after about 15-20 minutes. I am beginning to believe that the high CBD count is having a positive effect on my chronic back pain. I have been mixing this with a pinch of Jack Herer for a little more of a cerebral “kick”. But for just medicating without the psychoactive effects of most cannabis, this seems to be a great solution. If only I could ingest it easily without smoking (or having to prepare my own tinctures or medibles). It would be perfect.

    I can’t recommend this strain enough for patients who don’t want to be high, but need pain relief without turning to pills.

    Brief history of myself and marijuana before I begin with the review.

    I started smoking cannabis Junior year in High School. We probably smoked every other day. This was with close friends. We smoked A LOT! Usually blunt size cigars filled with cannabis. We usually had a good time. Laughed, got hungry, socialized etc.

    However, soon after high school was over, the high started effecting me differently. Unfortunately, in a bad way. I started getting anxiety, paranoia, sad thoughts about life changing, loosing friends etc. It didn’t happen every time I smoked but started happening more regularly. Same with some of my closest friends. They started not enjoying the high. Would make them uneasy with themselves. Insecure, anti-social etc.

    Long story short, I quit smoking weed because of this. Years went by. I would occasionally smoke when the opportunity prevented itself to give it another shot but it would always bring me back to the bad high.

    I didn’t understand what had happened. Was it the weed? Was it me? Was it just life? What was going on. I was almost certain it was the weed because a lot of my friends also gave up the habit because it gave the same effect on them.

    I didn’t want to give up. About the time I turned 25 I looked into getting a weed card. Because I have a history of right knee-pain, it was quite easy to get. After getting the card I hit up a couple dispensaries. Never before had I seen such a selection right before me. I was excited because I thought this will definitely help me track down the right stuff if anything would.

    Well, unfortunately, the high on all the stuff I tried was again, the same. Gave me a super head high with unstoppable negative thoughts. You see, I kinda think too much as it is, so when I smoke weed that is highly psychoactive, it really puts me in hyper mode of thinking, which overwhelms me, them brings me to anxiety. I needed a weed that brought me down. I tested and smoked indica’s, sativa’s, hybrids. All with pretty much the same results.

    I still like to go out and socialize at parties, bars etc. But I kinda want to get away from alcohol. It’s really not good for you and always give me a hangover the next day. BLAHHHH

    I’m 28 years old now. I started doing some research about marijuana and stumbled upon CBD’s. Never heard of it before. I only knew of the main ingredient THC. I read that almost all the breeders that grow marijuana today, grow it for maximum THC. The problem is by doing this it almost eliminates all the CBD content. CBD’s, I read, are responsible for cancelling out the negative effects of THC…like anxiety, paranoia etc. It’s sort of a Yin Yang relationship. You kinda want a 50/50 match of both in your strains.

    I read Harlequin was a good strain but very rare to find.

    Even with my cannabis permit, I had to search many dispensaries up here in Seattle, until I found one that had it. I shot up there and bought a couple grams.

    I rolled a couple small-medium size joints out of it. The joints were sitting in my house for a good couple weeks. I couldn’t really develop enough courage to smoke them because I was afraid it would bring me right back to the unwanted feelings.

    Well last night I met up with a close friend that I’ve known through the years since high school. He was actually one of my old pot smoking friends.

    We went out to a bar in Des Moines, WA. After a couple drinks (beers) I asked if he wanted to try a rare strain that is suppose to not produce anxiety. He was a little reluctant but I talked him into it. We went out to my car and lit up the joint I had prepared. We smoked the whole thing. Probably got 5 good hits each.

    Walking back into the bar I could feel a little bit of the unwanted feelings coming in, but it was different. It was easier for me to dismiss them. We went back to our seats at the bar top and started sipping the rest of our beer. Over the course of the next hour I must say we had quite the good time. We had some good laughs. Me, at times, came to tears with laughter. I’m pretty sure everyone at the bar top knew we were high. Actually, I know the bartenders did, because she said “you guys smell good” and gave us a little grin.

    I can’t say I really cared though. Like I said, I could feel a slight feeling of the bad side, but it was easy to push back. It must of been the high CBD content. I can’t say I was overly open to strangers but I did engage with the bartenders and the few people I did talk to, I jived with.

    At a couple times, I said a joke, and I guess I was either the only one that got it, or the only one that thought it was funny. I laughed…and I laughed HARD at my own joke. But other people didn’t. But again, I didn’t care. I was sorta in my own world and didn’t get effected by outside input.

    I am excited to try Harlequin again. Next time, I’m going to smoke maybe just 3 good hits without the alcohol before hand and see where it puts my head.

    But for the time being, I like the results we got from Harlequin :-)

    I like and use Harlequin almost everyday for my Asthma. I had my winter indoor bud tested, and it tested out at 9.77% CBD, I am also growing a clone outside as I am in Cali and have a RX. she’s a slow grower and to me is VERY much an Indica Dom plant she’s about 6 foot high and like 8 foot wide very nice but is very slow grower. Not all strains are going to work for everyone my wife has anxiety and Harlequin doesn’t work for her but others I have let try it it helped them a lot for anxiety, and pain. To me CBD is very good Asthma medicine and I can’t smoke so I eat it.

    This strain has very little to no psychedelic effects. It is amazing for anxiety and pain. It’s good for sleeping if insomnia is caused by stress. One if not my favorite strains. A very good solid strain. It’s tough to find but it’s worth thhe effort to find it.

    Doesn’t make you the least bit stoned, not at all. It relaxed the muscles in my back and relieved pain in my foot/ankle.

    Surprising lack of any ‘high’ at all.

    I am a newbie mm patient. i suffer from chronic back pain. this was great! i really liked that it does not have much of a mental high, more physical pain relief.
    i took it just as i would if i was taking pain pills. i medicated every 4 hours. i actually called my husband later in the day to announce: “i had my first virtually pain free days in years!”
    i highly recomend medicating every 4 hours. do not chase the pain. do not smoke just when in pain. you want to be one step ahead of the pain :)
    in closing, if your looking to trip out this is not the strain for you. if you are looking for something to smoke during the day to knock out the pain yet you can be out and about without anyone noticing, then this is for you! cheers!

    Decent pain relief, you must use a lot of this strain. High CBD Strain. I was focused, and very little mental affects so it was very functional. Decent pain relief and some muscle relaxation. I like to mix high cbd strains with something with more thc and usually get great effects from the combo.

    I consume bud at a rate of an eighth to a quad per month. In my college days that was a weekly rate. I by no means consider myself a big smoker, but I’ve certainly tried a lot of varieties. CBD strains like Harlequin took me out of a long, long break from smoking. I had become paranoid or anxious from basically any strain, indica or sativa, for something like 2 years. The CBD strains have eased me back into the joy of THC strains and let me experience the medicinal effects of marijuana. Harlequin is especially fun because it never makes me lazy (often yields productivity), promotes creativity (e.g. I produce music and technical knowledge seems to come out of me more freely), and makes sweet love making even sweeter : )

    Having several dx causing severe chronic cervical pain, including pinched nerves, herniated C6, degenerative disc disease, cervical spinal stenosis and arthritis, I have been taking opioids for 2 years to control the pain. Currently on a 100mcg/hour Fentanyl transdermal patch and 20mg oxycodone for breakthrough, I really needed to find something safer that also worked.

    I researched for a week before deciding which strains to try and was very happy to find that Mother Earth carried the high CBD strain Harlequin. This plant is almost a perfect match to my ideal. Having very low THC content, I felt the tiniest bit in my head after smoking, but experienced a significant reduction in pain originating from my neck (at C6), through my shoulder, into my elbow and hand.

    It bears noting that I have not smoked marijuana in 20 years so all strains effect me pretty strongly. However, Harlequin was very smooth and, while it didn’t effect my head too much, it also didn’t cause me to drift off to sleep. I was able to just relax without being distracted by pain. This will be a very nice strain to smoke during the day because it allows me to have pain relief without fogging my brain.

    There are two things that I wasn’t too happy with, but they are not deal breakers for me. I normally require 2 medium hits and Harlequin required 4 to achieve pain relief. Also, it only lasted about an hour and a half. Since it worked so well, this will be my go to herb until I find something that might last a little longer.

    Easily in my top 3 favorites for high CBD strains. Hell, let me rephrase that… Top 3 strains period! I suffer from extreme anxiety/ paranoia and this is the best I’ve ever felt off of cannabis Rx . I was surprised to find this was more of a sativa base then Indica since most strong THC based sativa’s just add to the paranoia.

    My particular lab tested batch is a whopping 18% CBD which was impressive to say the least. This stuff is insanely sticky! Nice earthy smell and taste with a hint of pine and citrus notes. The head high is mild yet powerful. Very creative thought process and happiness seems to be never ending. The body high is almost euphoric… My joints feel looser, Cramps and aches from work are diminished severely! Great for after a long day on the job or after a stressful day period. If you suffer from Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Stress, Paranoia and Pain, I would be a horrible person for not recommending this strain! Kinda hard to come by in my area but 1,000X’s worth it!

    This is a hard strain to evaluate the strength of, because it isn’t that conventionally stoney. Mentally, there’s not that much of a sense of being ‘high’. Coexisting with that, though there’s some bodily sense of being completely blasted. It’s like there’s a CBD aspect of a conventional weed’s effect, and a THC aspect. Harlequin has the CBD aspect beat all to hell, and is an utter wimp in the THC aspect. So smoking this for the first time might be a strange experience, like it was for me.

    The effect on pain is really remarkable for something that feels like weird junk weed. What’s great about it is after the weenie little head high has petered out (maybe 15 minutes) the CBDs are still going strong for a couple more hours.

    Sometimes though I’ve had Harlequin not work on pain at all, until I have a whiff of something higher in THC. Then the pain relief will come in. That’s worth trying if Harlequin isn’t making it for you.

    I haven’t had this as a medible, tincture, or topical (or better yet RSO), but I think it would be fabulous this way.
