Let me start off by saying that I have been terrified of smoking weed for like 10 years now. I had some really bad experiences and have a serious anxiety disorder. I have been avoiding weed and have been sad about it for a long time. Rec weed became legal in my state yesterday and I decided to go buy a gram just for funsies. Even though I don't smoke, I know a little bit. I bought some Harlequin because I knew it was high CBD and known for body feel rather than head high - it was a fantastic choice.
If you are scared of pot - smoke this weed. I've smoked half a joint to myself and feel completely fine. I have lots of chronic pain, PTSD, and anxiety, and this strain has been fabulous. Pot has come a long way in 10 years! I even smoked when I woke up in the morning and was able to function all day long. I made the mistake of going to Target and spent too much money on socks and candy, but that's beside point.
This strain tastes great, helps with pain, seriously reduces my anxiety, and I've experienced no negative side effects. I am blown away by how great this has worked out for me. I highly recommend Harlequin for anxiety and for people looking into getting into smoking or getting back into it. I love this strain and I'm going to pick up some more tomorrow.......all hail Harlequin!
I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH - this is a great intro to pot or to someone with an anxiety disorder. If I can use this, so can you!
