Purple Urkle, thought to be a phenotype of Mendo Purps, has been grown in Mendocino and Humboldt since the late 1980s. By the mid-90s, it could be found at dispensaries throughout Northern California.
A nearly pure indica, Purple Urkle offers an extremely relaxing body stone while also soothing the mind. It’s excellent for treating chronic pain and insomnia, as well as anxiety, muscle spasms, nausea, and numerous other ailments.
Purple Urkle may be too strong for less experienced patients
In addition to the physical buzz and probable “couch-lock,” many users experience an intense sense of euphoria. For those with severe pain or a high tolerance, Purple Urkle may be one of the only strains that provides reliably effective relief. But beginners are likely to find it overwhelmingly sedative, particularly in high doses. This is a heavy, hard-hitting indica that is best suited for nighttime use.
Growing Purple Urkle means prioritizing quality over quantity
Purple Urkle tends to be a small, somewhat slow-growing plant with relatively low yields. But when properly grown, the finished flowers are incredibly dense, potent, and, most of the time, deep purple. The buds have an enticing, slightly floral scent and, when smoked, the flavor is skunky, musky, and deliciously sweet, with notes of berries and a consistently noticeable grape taste that endears itself to Purple Urkle's many fans.
