Harlequin GDP is an interesting Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that has become incredibly popular amongst medical cannabis patients. This strain is attributed to an unknown grower, but we do know that the strain is an obvious cross between two famous strains: Harlequin and Granddaddy Purple. Harlequin GDP is grown almost exclusively for its wonderful THC:CBD ratio of 3:1, planting this strain firmly in the "medical" category of cannabis. Harlequin GDP is well suited for all-day consumption, but it's up to personal discretion for how the strain affects you.
You are likely to find Harlequin GDP in just about any form of consumption possible, as CBD-rich strains are often adapted into drinks, tinctures, edibles, and topicals. However, if you stumble upon some Harlequin GDP buds, you are indeed quite lucky! These buds are round, and take many shapes from small all the way up to oversized. They are often mint green in color but have been photographed as dark as violet purple! They are often covered in thick, long, dark-orange pistils in addition to incredibly dark sugar leaves that look black under the right lighting. The surface of the bud is smothered in snow-white crystal trichomes which help give the bud not only its potent effects but also a beautiful crystalline appearance. The aroma of this bud contains a full-bodied grape scent with a bit of musk and assorted berries spread evenly throughout. The flavor is quite similar, as many have described its sweet flavor as containing hints of berries, grapes, and a bit of skunk.
The effects of this flower are largely medicinal, as it contains a relatively low THC concentration of 10% which won't grab the attention of recreational tokers. However, this bud can be consumed however you want, as it does deliver both medicinal and recreational effects which can benefit just about anyone. This creeper slowly builds behind the eyes before exploding throughout your head with wave after wave of euphoric bliss. Your mood will instantly be elevated as you hone in on what's important and block out all the distractions. While it may seem like you're climbing forever, you will eventually reach a plateau in the high where it takes a turn for the more calming Indica aspects of the bud. As this deep sense of relaxation takes hold of your muscles, your aches and pains melt away before your very eyes. Harlequin GDP won't couch lock you and it won't put you to sleep, which gives it an edge over stronger Indica strains for daytime consumption. This strain is most often used by those seeking relief from symptoms of depression, anxiety, chronic pain, chronic stress, and insomnia.
