About Purple Urkle
Purple Urkle is perhaps one of the most famous Indica strains around yet it’s origins are still mostly a mystery. What we do know is that the strain is around since the 1980’s and originally grows in the Emerald Triangle area of northern California (Humboldt County). It is regularly a “Purple Urple” and occasionally “The Urkle”.
While most veteran cannabis growers in the Emerald Triangle region are generally tight about their strain hybrids and genetics, most growers assume Purple Urkle was the offspring of either Mendocino Purps or Granddaddy Purple.
It’s 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. As with many heavy Indica strains it’s effects can be quite lethargic and relaxing making it an excellent strain for insomnia and anxiety. It is also regularly for pain management and as an appetite stimulant.
Due to it’s sedating effects it is best left for late evening or night time use. It know to be a ‘two-hitter-quitter’ strain – meaning two hits is generally enough to get the full effects. With THC percentages well into the 20’s we would recommend lower doses to start, especially for novice users.
Up to 24-26% THC
