Harlequin 1:1 Review

XtaSeay and I’s Harlequin 1:1 sap was as sticky and gooey as it looked.

“I really like the consistency of the sap,” XtaSeay said. “It’s fun to play with, but it’s also great because you can keep recycling the residue inside the vaporizer.”

However, XtaSeay and I both see how this might be a little much for someone who is new to cannabis or using concentrates.

“It’s easier to use a [vaporizer] tank, especially for new patients,” XtaSeay added. “Over time, I can definitely see more people appreciating concentrates because you get more use for the value.”

Concentrates are also less harsh on the lungs, compared to vaporizing flower or using a vape cartridge.

Harlequin 1:1 is especially smooth. XtaSeay and I were unphased as we took long rips from our vaporizers.

“The lower THC content and higher CBD content of Harlequin definitely produce more of a relaxed feeling,” XtaSeay said. “I’d recommend it for any time of the day, since it’s very effective at reducing pain and anxiety.”

I agree. Personally, I find that THC can be a bit… Overwhelming. Sure, it’s fun sometimes, but other times I find myself spiraling into a whirlwind of existential dread after using THC-heavy vape cartridges.

Harlequin 1:1 is the perfect balance between THC and CBD. You are able to truly appreciate CBD’s anti-inflammatory and other pain alleviating properties while still getting a very slight buzz from the THC.

Bug & XtaSeay’s Rating


5 out of 5 Jokers

I highly HIGHLY recommend Harlequin 1:1 – especially for those who are skeptical of CBD.

Harlequin calmed me down without knocking me out. I still felt I could carry on with my daily routine without having to worry about my chronic pain.


4.5 out of 5 Jokers

“I recommend Harlequin 1:1 for those who want the medicinal effects without an intense high,” XtaSeay said. “I felt very calm, no stress or worries while using the sap.”

Although XtaSeay enjoyed the consistency of the sap, he did find it difficult to gauge dosages and handle at times.

“It’s definitely trickier to administer and use,” XtaSeay said. “Older patients I’ve worked with also expressed difficulties using concentrates, especially sap.”
