Harlequin strain is a widely known choice among marijuana users because of its unique origin, hybrid nature and due to the fact that it can be used any time of the day or night with hardly any issues of getting too high. A person using the strain can easily become sober within minutes but can experience many benefits including relief from mild pain and stress. It also allows the person to be more energetic, focused on the task at hand.
The strain is easily identified with its medium-sized bulbs and thin, large leaves. Similar to many other marijuana strains, this can be grown both indoors and outdoors. Harlequin plants can reap close to similar results when grown indoors but finding good quality hybrid seeds requires some research before you acquire them from the right vendor.
History of Harlequin Strain
The origin of the Harlequin strain begins as early as the 1970s. Compared to other strains available in the market, this particular variant is a popular solution that is a combination of multiple marijuana plants mixed together.
The original recipe begins with the 1970s Colombian gold, a popular weed that is combined with Thai and Swiss Sativa landraces. The mixture also includes an Indica variety that originates from Nepal. The strain doesn’t belong to a single continent like many other plants but rather is a mixed solution that provides its unique flavor, smell and appearance.
Harlequin is the name of Italian clowns who wear colorful costumes and perform in the streets. The strain is comprised of 75% Sativa and has managed to win various Cannabis Cup awards. Making a mark in the highly competitive, hybrid and natural seed market is a difficult task that this strain has achieved.
THE APPEARANCE OF THE HARLEQUIN STRAIN
Identifying the Harlequin Strain through its physical appearance, the way it smells and the textures is quite possible. Being a hybrid variant, it should definitely be a difficult task but knowing what are the things to look out for makes it a task that most people could accomplish.
For newcomers, the tight placement and the density of the buds is a quick giveaway that it belongs to this particular strain. They are usually medium green in color and are medium-sized buds. The pistils found on the buds and the flower could largely vary in terms of color which is something to take note of. It could be a vivid red in some cases while based on where it is being grown and the hybrid seed used in it, it can also be an orange-colored bud.
Trying to find out if it is the right strain before making a purchase, by smelling it? Harlequin smells like a tropical fruit in the bottom portion. Being a hybrid variant with no single smell dominating over the entire seed, it is a mix of citrus, mango combined with wood and earthy scent making it on par with an exquisite perfume product. The different ratio of smell described here can be experienced only when the flowers and leaves are mashed together to bring out its hidden flavors.
EFFECTS OF HARLEQUIN
The user may look forward to consuming any kind of marijuana for the high effect it offers. Although a Harlequin strain belongs to the category of weeds and is a mix of many seeds put together, it doesn’t provide the quick high expected of it from seasoned users. Instead, it creates a mellow effect in the mind of the person using it.
Through various users, it is confirmed to have a very uplifting mindset making it all-day, all-night marijuana that can also be considered as an anti-depressant for those who need it. In select scenarios, it has also been confirmed to create an effect of mild anxiety relief while it has the potential to improve focus and a change in perspective.
The major difference between Harlequin and other weed strains available is that anyone can quickly come back to sobriety. Some people use it to feel relieved from mild pain, chronic conditions that disturb sleep. The leaves, when inhaled or consumed in different forms, will also alleviate nausea and has anti-inflammatory properties. Some common side effects include loss of appetite, anxiety and mildly depressed state when consumed in immoderate quantities.
Many people who had the opportunity to use this cannabis in their late 30s and 40s strongly opine that it has a positive effect on their mindset. Besides being able to come out of depression and inflammatory issues, they can also manage to get rid of issues like allergies, exercise intolerance and so on. It also has a rejuvenating aroma which when smelled provides a quick high but is completely legal and can be consumed in mild quantities to get rid of anxiety disorder among various other common medical conditions.
The Harlequin strain can be grown both indoors and in outdoor conditions. When grown within a specified area, it takes approximately 8 to 9 weeks before the flower is ready for harvest. In terms of yield, it can produce 25 ounces per square meter and it is essential to have good quality buds to be able to achieve the expected harvest.

The hybrid variant of the seeds when sown can deliver about 21 ounces per plant. The months when it should be grown for better yields are from the middle of October up to November for lands located in the Northern Hemisphere. The months vary in the Southern Hemisphere as it should be done during the mid of April. The feminized seeds are rather potent variants when purchased from a trusted vendor.
