Harlequiin has been nothing short of a miracle for my varied health problems. I am 30 years old and had not done cannabis before. I was researching ways to heal my gastrointestinal inflammation and bleeding, which contributes to most of my other problems (allergies, hormonal imbalance, fatigue, exercise intolerance, etc) and decided to give cannabis a try. I did some other strains before trying a high CBD, low THC strain. I didn't really enjoy the spaciness most highs impart; I'm one of those people that really likes my brain being as active and engaged and coherent as possible, so other strains just bored me. I really need my short term memory intact, too; that drives me crazy. So I got a strain of Harlequin that's 15% CBD to 7% THC. Three hits gets me high, so I take two in the morning and two at night and I can function normally. I AM NOT EXAGGERATING WHEN I SAY HARLEQUIN HAS TURNED MY LIFE AROUND. Before, I would eat a very restricted diet (restricted form of paleo) to avoid all my food allergies, eat all organic, eat as much raw food as possible, etc. Even doing all this, and taking probiotics and enzymes, was not enough to really help my digestive tract much. I would feel considerably better than when I didn't do those things, but I'd still low on energy, and I still had exercise intolerance, and so on. My first week on Harlequin I decided to test if cannabis was as effective as I'd heard on some medical forums. Ulcerative colitis patients were saying it stopped their bleeding entirely, and I found that hard to believe but I figured they had no reason to lie, and most of these people sounded like they had worse GI problems than I did too. So the first day, I ate a bunch of things I usually can't eat at all. I waited for the stuffy nose, the feeling of being hit by a truck, the need to nap... nothing ever came. My stomach never got upset. I thought surely I'd feel it the next morning -- I will always, always wake up with a stuffy nose and sore all over if I eat so much as extra sugar -- but nope. I woke up feeling better than ever. For a FULL WEEK I just ate complete junk AND I FEEL BETTER THAN I EVER HAVE IN MY LIFE. - No more gastrintestinal bleeding. No more related pain, either. - My dietary histamine intolerance is gone completely. This is good news for my love of tea. - Normally my skin would be pallid and oily, and my face would be puffy, and I'd be breaking out. My skin looks vibrant. - My normally messed up circadian rhythms are correcting themselves: after years of sleeping 12 to 16 hours from sheer fatigue, if I go to bed at 3AM I actually have trouble sleeping past 9AM, but I feel rested and alert! I've only been on the Harlequin a short while but my sleep schedule has been creeping back to something "normal:" I'm going to gradually sleep earlier and waking up earlier. I'm curious to see if this will turn into an 11AM to 6AM sort of thing, which would be nice. - I had almost ZERO PMS symptoms, though mine were never very bad. Considerably less bleeding, too, and I usually have a day of heavy bleeding. - My exercise intolerance is gone! Before, my low blood pressure meant my heart had to shoot up to 220+ bpm just to get oxygen to my cells if I did any sort of cardio. It was never enough, either, so I could faint. And I always felt TERRIBLE afterwards: no sort of endorphin rush whatsoever, I just needed to nap. I went to the gym again after doing Harlequin and exercise is MUCH EASIER: my heart rate never went over 175 and I had no problem running. I wasn't tired, or in any danger of fainting, and the best part is when I was done, I FELT GREAT THE REST OF THE DAY. I've actually found myself getting the urge to go exercise, even on days that I've already exercised, when I never get that urge at all normally. I CANNOT BELIEVE JUST DOING CANNABIS DROPPED MY HEART RATE 50BPM INTO NORMAL PEOPLE TERRITORY WHEN MONTHS OF STUBBORN DETERMINATION TRYING TO WORK OUT DIDN'T DROP IT EVEN 1BPM. I sound like an informercial but I cannot get over this. - Similarly, I do not want to nap or feel like I'm going to pass out if I'm in 85F+ weather anymore. I just feel fine! So it's having a positive effect on my low blood pressure. - Libido seems to be incrementally increasing with use. I think this is a function of my hormones balancing, probably not a direct effect of a compound in Harlequin. Harlequin appears to be doing a lot of wonderful things to my hormones, whether directly or because my stomach isn't complicating matters I don't know. But I don't care. I will probably do Harlequin for the rest of my life, unless I find something similar. I doubt most people will have results as dramatic as mine, particularly if they haven't had a slew of difficult-to-target health problems, but maaaaan. If you have any of the issues I've described, I urge you to get some. I wish I had this decades ago.

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!

Harlequin is THE strain everyone needs in their rotation(or on constant supply). Think of Harlequin as the "classic" pot. This is what 99% of the bands at woodstock would have picked. IMO I feel Harlequin is closely related to "panama red", which is a very mellow, but uplifting and energetic high, and very happy as well. Your focus is on point with this strain. Now, it's not what harlequin has that PR does have, it's what it DOESN'T have that makes it great. That annoying head pressure and "lightheaded" feeling that makes people nauseous when smoking a sativa. Instead, your whole body gets nice and high, with no negative effects, like paranoia or anxiety. I feel that harlequin was bred as a perfect strain. I'm yet to meet a single person who doesn't love Harlequin. And it's as close to the original strains from back in the day, but with a little more bite in some parts, and less(pleasantly) in others. I promise you won't dislike this strain at all. Great for just about anything!

I started smoking when I was 14 and had to stop when 22 due to underlying mental-health problems (bipolar and suffer from extreme panic attacks which often result in hospitalization). I've tried smoking multiple times since 22 (I'm now 34) but the result was always the same: 1-2 hrs in the bathtub thinking I was dying and praying for it to stop. I wen't out of my way to try Harlequin once I heard about it, and the results have been surprising. Not only do I not suffer from panic attacks from smoking it, but I'm also able to cope with other anxiety much easier as well. I also love the effect that it has on my neck and back pain; It doesn't actually go away, yet your able to COMPLETELY forget about it. So if you think about it you see that it is still there, but moments later something distracts you and your able to go another 30+ minutes without noticing it at all, which in my book is just as well as making it go away. Also, the effects are very nice. I was half expecting to not really get stoned due to other comments, but I found that it was stony enough to be fun yet very manageable - to the point that I was fine in 7/11 while getting snacks (I also suffer from social anxiety, especially when self-conscious.) I will most likely smoke this for a great while, where before trying it I never would have though I'd be able to enjoy smoking again.

This is still the best strain for pain relief that I have had all year. I want to urge all of the growers out there to PLEASE GROW THIS and other HIGH CBD strains for us CHRONIC PAIN sufferers! Thank you.

I. Love. Harlequin. I recently "detoxed" from prescription migraine medications. I was taking 15 plus imitrex a month. I saw several doctors and they were all like "keep taking them! It's not a problem." What a bunch of crap. The imitrex and topamax (thank god I was only on that briefly) were both causing tons of rebound headaches. That was a few months ago...I'm now back to my "normal" level of migraines. 3-4 a month. So if you're in that boat "ABANDON SHIP!" :) I've tried a couple other strains, but for my migraines this one is a lifesaver. I was told by my local place, by a fellow migraine sufferer, that Indicas with a 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD work best. I found they work ok, but maybe that info will help somebody else. I've also found this strain works well for PMS and cramps. Not sure if it's the best for that though, just the best I've found so far.

This is funny, because this is my second Harlequin review - but this is for the flower form. I use medicinally for chronic pain. I'm getting to be a bit more knowledgable now, so my review will be slightly more informed. So in flower form, Harlequin is thus far my favourite medicine. I take three puffs and get a wonderful body high that just takes my pain away. It's not that I don't notice it anymore, it's that it feels like its gone. It makes me SO happy to not feel my pain. Note that I have fibromyalgia and degenerative disc in my lower back, to for me to not be feeling my pain seems like somewhat of a miracle. I very much want to try it in a pen vape cartridge, if I can find one without any glycols. I realized that my problem with Black Cherry Soda was the glycol in the cartridge, which gave me migraines (I also have chemical sensitivity). So this will completely contradict my first Harlequin review, in which I gave it one star....in oil concentrate form. I have since realized that it was just that if I took too much, it gave me anxiety, but if I keep my doses really low, I'm great with it.

I honestly can not say enough good things about this strain. I suffer from anxiety and became a patient to see if marijuana could help some of my symptoms. I figured if I could control what I smoked, I would be able to find something that worked for me. Unfortunately over the last month, every strain I tried, no matter how low the THC content, would cause immense panic attacks and overall terrible experiences. Really disappointing. I made one last run to a dispensary to buy a high CBD strain to try, before I retired my recommendation and sought other options. Holy hell, this is the strain for me. I have almost NO anxiety when I smoke this. I can talk, think clearly, be in public, and many other things that are just unmanageable for me when I smoke high THC strains. The high isn't too overwhelming, but it's still there. I just feel uplifted, relaxed, but fully functional. I even notice that some of the side effects of THC that can throw me into a full fledged panic attack (i.e. the racing heartbeat feeling) doesn't bother me when I smoke this strain. The only downside is sometimes I get wicked munchies. If you're looking for a blow your mind other dimension high, this strain is not for you. But if you're looking to put your anxiety at ease while still being able to fully function, look up a dispensary and do. not. hesitate. You will not regret it.
