A Powerful Medical Strain

Bred by the Southern Humboldt Seed Collective, Harley Tsu is a hybrid with large amounts of CBD. Medical patients seek out this strain because of the high CBD content. The amount of CBD is 20 times higher than it has THC.

The exact lineage of Harley-Tsu is not debatable. Everyone in the cannabis community will agree that it was crossed with the sativa Harlequin and the hybrid Sour Tsunami. Harelquin is mostly a CBD strain that counteracts the paranoia associated with THC. Sour Tsunami is another strain that is high in CBD that doesn’t get people high. Combining these two CBD strains created a super effect CBD strain that is meant to combat pain.

It is an award-winning strain. The company called, Dabbenport Extracts, entered their own version of Harley-Tsu as Harle-Tsu. They won 3rd place under the Best CBD Concentrate.

How to Grow Harley-Tsu

Harley is generally used to create CBD oils and tinctures. However, before it can be used to create oils, the strain still needs to be grown from seed. Expect this phenotype to produce fluffy, lumpy, elongated grape-shaped nugs.

It has great bag appeal. Harley has beautiful colors of green with sporadic orange hairs. It also develops an incredibly sticky coating of resin.

Harley can be grown indoors and outdoors. When grown indoors, this strain will flower in 8 weeks. It has a 75% chance of developing its high CBD characteristics that it gained from its parents. It’ll grow like an indica, short and stout.

Medical Patients Rave Over CBD

The Tastes and Smells of Harley-Tsu

When smoked in flower form, it is one smooth hitting bud. The effects are instant, it doesn’t take long before a person can feel the effects kick in. With one good puff, a person feels calm and relaxed without loosing your senses.

When popping open a jar of Harley, the smells that radiate out are earthy, woody and sweet. When breaking open a nug a shot of citrus will fill your nose.
