Purple Urkle’s Strain history is as complex as its flavor palate.
A California strain, the origins are believed to stem from a select phenotype of Mendocino Purps, while the essence is a blend of skunk, berry, and fresh grapes.
Consumers report the indica effects to be deeply relaxing, sleep-inducing, and a great option for full-body pain relief.

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 has been around since the 1980’s and was originally grow.
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 the offspring of either Mendocino Purps or Granddaddy Purple.
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 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 20’s 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.
As with many Indica’s the strain remains fairly short and stocky with yields slightly lower than average.
