Harlequin Cannabis Strain Review (Origin, Potency, Benefits)

Long before there were clowns, there was a Harlequin, a comic servant character from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte, which translates to ‘the comedy of artists.’ In Italian, the name Harlequin is Arlecchino, an acrobatic shapeshifter who was comically bad at hatching schemes.

He is also famous for being a terrible messenger who was often distracted and forgot what he was supposed to tell someone. Indeed, one suspects the character ‘Baldrick’ in the famous Blackadder comedy series (watch British comedy sometimes, people!) is based on Arlecchino. The Harlequin is a clown and recognized by the diamond-shaped patches that were part of his attire.

It is hard to say if the Harlequin marijuana strain is named after this famous character, but it is certainly as unique and diverse! It is one of the best-known strains because it contains a high level of CBD and a reasonable level of THC, a rarity in the world of weed.

What is the Harlequin Strain?

Harlequin weed is every bit as mixed up as Arlecchino in terms of its parentage. It is a sativa-dominant hybrid (up to 75%) and is a cross of a Swiss Sativa, Nepali Indica, Thai Sativa, and Colombian Gold. As you can plainly see, it is not your ordinary, garden-variety marijuana strain.

Like the Harlequin of lore, who wore sharply contrasting colors such as orange and purple, or yellow and red, the strain is a sharp contrast of CBD and THC. It is alleged that the strain was initially bred to be a hash-producing crop, but ultimately became one of the most sought-after medicinal marijuana strains on the market. It is believed to have been created by a breeder called Mr. Green of the House of David Collective.

Aroma

The Harlequin marijuana strain is a sweet-smelling plant which fills the room with a pleasant aroma. You may initially get notes of wood and soil, but then you might notice the creamy vanilla notes that get your attention. It isn’t a pungent plant by any means, and it won’t linger in a room for long. Some users claim they get hints of mango, too.

Flavor

Although there is a faint sweetness on the tongue, you may be surprised by the taste of Harlequin. It offers a potent herbal flavor along with pine notes. When you smoke it, you’ll probably notice a creamy, woody flavor that hits the spot.

Appearance

The buds of this strain are round, dense, and have a forest green color. The rusty orange hairs stand out against this background, as do the amber trichomes.

Harlequin Strain Grow Info

Once you get Harlequin strain seeds, your best option is to grow the strain indoors where you have better control over the climate. If you insist on growing it outside, you need a warm climate with moderate to low humidity. Residents of Colorado, for example, often complain that the region is too humid to grow this strain outside.

On the plus side, Harlequin has a high resistance to pests and mold, as long as the humidity level is kept in check. Make sure the relative humidity (RH) level is below 65% by the beginning of the vegetative stage, and lower it weekly until it is below 55% by the time your plants reach the blooming stage. The RH can be 30-40% near harvest time. When grown outdoors, Harlequin can yield up to 21 ounces per plant.

The yield is even higher indoors, up to 25 ounces per square meter planted. You can increase the overall yield by engaging in low-stress training (LST) or high-stress training (HST) techniques. When you get these methods right, the entire plant is exposed to light and has enough airflow. A failure to prune your Harlequin plants could result in bud rot

With 80% of the plants genetics dominated by a combination of Colombian, Swiss Sativa and Thai, the addition of 20% Indica Nepali, shortens the flowering times to more manageable levels.

Available in regular format only, Harlequin males are perfect for breeding with, while the females produce strong, fast-rooting clones, creating identical plants and buds every time.

The dominant Sativa genetics produce a tall plant, benefiting from super-cropping techniques such as topping, staking and bending to maximize the overall yield.

Indoor growers should create airflow around the buds as they benefit greatly from large quantities of fresh air, and harvest early, as CBD quickly deteriorates as the plants mature.

As these are regular marijuana seeds, they may produce either a male or female plant, and will require sexing during pre-flowering. Complete maturity requires between 8 – 9 weeks when grown indoors, or early Fall when grown outside.

Yields are good, approximately 400 grams per square meter indoors, achieving around 17 ounces of good quality marijuana when grown outside over a complete season.
