Purple Urkle marijuana strain originated from the Emerald Triangle region of Northern California. Many theories are surrounding its parental lineage, but many people believe that it came from Mendocino Purps or Granddaddy Purple. It is a potent hybrid strain with a THC content averaging at 20%. Purple Urkle has a rich history dating back to the 19980s when it first debuted in the cannabis market.
This seemingly unique marijuana strain is distinguished from the rest by its purple nuggets dotted with long orange pistils and covered by frosty trichomes. Purple Urkle displays the typical Indica structure since it has more Indica genes. The plant is short, thicker, and bushier.
Purple Urkle is a short plant, usually not exceeding 5 feet. It requires a lot of sunlight during the growth period, making it a challenge for indoor growers. However, it takes a much shorter time to mature when grown indoors than outdoors, with an average yield of 1-2 ounces per plant. You can expect to harvest after about 8-9 years. Outdoor growers will get about ½ pounds per plant, but they have to wait a little bit longer.
Purple Urkle marijuana strain has a sweet and skunky smell, with hints of tropical fruit, grapes, fruity pebbles, and skunk. The weed strain tastes much like grapes and sweet berries. Its smoke is described as thick and sugary with earthy flavor on the background, something that can lure you to overdoing yourself.
Like many other Indica-dominant hybrid strains, Purple Urkle is deeply relaxing, sleep-inducing, and provides a numbing effect, resulting in full-body pain relief. It is the best way of smoking away all your problems and falling into a deep sleep. You are warned about taking this weed strain in the morning or afternoon when you still need to be productive.
If you want to relieve insomnia, chronic pain, depression, loss of appetite, nausea, PTSD, stress, and other medical conditions, go for Purple Urkle.
