Harlequin Strain — Clear and Colorful

Unlike most strains today that were bred for higher and higher THC levels, Harlequin is a high CBD strain with lower levels of THC. In fact, most tested samples show the same level of CBD and THC. This means that it produces effects that are far less altering and more pain-relieving than cerebral strains like Wookie.
