Purple Urkle has a history 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. The short onset of effects make it a perfect nighttime strain for those who suffer from insomnia.
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 used 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 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. If you are an experienced toker then this strain is great for you.
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.
