About Purple Urkle
History & Genetics
Purple Urkle is perhaps one of the most famous indica strains around yet its origins are still mostly a mystery. What we do know is that the strain has been around since the 1980s and was originally grown in the Emerald Triangle area of northern California (Humboldt County). It is regularly referred to as "Purple Urple" and occasionally "The Urkle".
While most veteran cannabis growers in the Emerald Triangle region are generally tight-lipped about their strain hybrids and genetics, most growers assume Purple Urkle was a phenotype of either Mendocino Purps or Granddaddy Purple.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
Its effects, taste, and smell are fairly consistent with most purple strains of marijuana when grown properly. Purple Urkle has a sweet and skunky smell generally containing the aromas of tropical fruit, grapes, fruity pebbles, and skunk.
Nugs of Purple Urkle are dense, thick, and typically covered in lots of frosty trichomes.
As with many heavy indica strains, its effects can be quite lethargic and relaxing making it an excellent strain for insomnia and anxiety. It is also used regularly for pain management and as an appetite stimulant.
Due to its sedating effects, it is best left for late evening or nighttime use. It has also been known to be a 'two-hitter-quitter' strain - meaning two hits is generally enough to get the full effects. With THC percentages well into the '20s, we would recommend lower doses to start, especially for novice users.
Purple Urkle is a very slow growing strain especially when growing outdoors. When growing outside it generally takes a full 5 months to flower while flowering time indoors can be as quick as 8 weeks. As with many indica's the strain remains fairly short and stocky with yields slightly lower than average. Expect 1-2 ounces per plant on an indoor grow and roughly 1/2 pound per plant on an outdoor grow.
Such a sweet but peppery taste with best relaxing high
Absolutely amazing! i work at a dispensary so im always buying prerolls to try a variety of strains and let me tell you, this one made its way right to FIRST PLACE on my pre-roll list! If your ever lucky enough to come across this strain, DONT pass it up!!
One of the best strains created. Most recently got some from Curaleaf Hudson Valley. The taste, smell, and effects are phenomenal, and the purple-hued buds are a sight to behold.
Absolutely love the purple urkle such an amazing flavor very smooth smoke. It was my first time trying it this evening and I couldn't be more happier. I love flower that has different fruit flavors and this is absolutely one of my favs now.
All Hail the All Mighty PURPLE URKLE! Now this is what medical marijuana is. You wanna try to doubt the positive effects of weed, I dare you to try a quality growers product of this strain and tell me I'm wrong. I triple dog dare you! I have had about 6 or 7 different kinds of the Urkle and about 3 of those kinds were out of this world while the others were a huge let down. fyi.
