Purple Urkle is a popular purple cannabis that has been around since the 1980s, and originally grown in what is known as the Emerald Triangle region of Northern California, a place known for its abundance of marijuana farms. Veterans of this group of growers are generally known for keeping quiet on hybrid genetics, so its exact lineage is unclear, but it is assumed Purple Urkle is an offspring of Granddaddy Purple or Mendocino Purps. Taste and smell are consistent with most purple weed strains. The sweet aroma with hints of tropical fruit, grapes, and fruity pebbles is balanced with an earthy skunk. The result is a spacey, relaxing high making this indica excellent for anxiety or insomnia, and also recommended for pain relief. It’s also a good night time strain to help with insomnia because of its ability to induce drowsiness for some users. Known to be a “two-hitter” strain because of its high THC count, well over 20%, so novices should use with discretion.
The Purple Urkles strain is a clone-only variety of cannabis that has skyrocketed in popularity since the 1980s. It is sometimes referred to as Purple Urple or The Urkle as well.
The Purple Urkles Strain’s Genetics Are Highly Debated
As is often the case, the precise genetics of the Purple Urkle strain are often debated. It originated in the Emerald Triangle region of northern California, which has a reputation for keeping such knowledge within a small network.
It has been suggested that the Purple Urkle strain is a phenotype of Granddaddy Purple. However, the Purple Urkle strain is most often referred to as a specific phenotype of the Mendocino Purps strain that helped start the “purple craze” in California.
