Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.
The introduction of this medical marijuana strain can be dated back to late 1980s. This is a Californian strain which is often classified as classical strain. This is believed to be the phenotype of ‘Granddaddy Purple’. However, this is most frequently referred to be the specific phenotype of ‘Mendocino Purps’. This strain is identified by its purple nugs covered by longer orange hairs. Physically, purple urkle is typical of an indica strain and is shorter, thicker and bushier. This is another clone-only strain dedicated to Californian dispensaries. This strain is found to best grown indoor than outdoor. The aroma of this strain is skunky with minute hints of fruity aroma. With the THC and CBD of 18-21% and 0.36%, respectively, this strain tastes like grapes and sweet berries. The strong physical buzz given by this strain would alleviate the symptoms of muscle spasms, anxiety and nausea. The users of this strain reported that the indicia effects of this strain thoroughly relax and sleep-inducing. Hence, this will be an ideal bedtime strain for those who are fighting insomnia.
Purple Urkle’s history is as complex as its flavor palate. A California strain, the origins are believed to stem from a select phenotype of either Granddaddy Purple or 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.
