Purple Urkle is one of the most popular Indica hybrids there is. This strain also delivers a powerful body high that will leave you feeling calm, relaxed, happy, and sleepy.
On average, Indica strains have somewhere around 12.5% THC. But Purple Urkle steps things up when it comes to potency.
Flowers from this strain average at least 16.5% THC. And the most potent can climb as high as 26%. That’s definitely enough THC to send you floating through space or leave you comfortably locked to your couch.
As an Indica, Purple Urkle will hit you most strongly in your body. With just one or two puffs, you’ll feel relaxed and calm.
These sensations usually set in pretty quick and pretty deep. Be ready to feel happily drowsy almost immediately.
Scent & Flavor
Purple Urkle has an interesting scent and flavor profile. It starts off sweet and skunky. And as you break apart your nugs and start lighting up, you’ll also notice distinct notes of fruit, grapes, and berries. All of this combines to create a truly tasty, enjoyable, one of a kind smoking experience.
If you experience any negative effects, it’ll probably be one of three things: dizziness, paranoia, or a headache. Since this strain is pretty strong, and since it’s a fast hitter, you may want to go slow at first. That way you won’t be blindsided by any nasty side effects.
Stick with evening and night time use. Purple Urkle isn’t great for daytime use, since there’s a really good chance a sesh with this one will leave you couch locked and ready for bed.
But when your day is done, or when you’ve got a day off, Purple Urkle can be an excellent choice. Just be prepared for a fast-acting, hard-hitting body high. In fact, for most people, this strain is a “two-hitter-quitter.” So start out slow and pace yourself.
The strong body highs this strain produces also make it a great medicinal strain. Most patients that use Purple Urkle use it for insomnia, nausea, or to help manage aches and pains. Some people also have success using it to treat depression and anxiety.
Although Purple Urkle is a fairly common name among cannabis fans, its genetic background is pretty murky. Here’s what we know.
It originated in the Emerald Triangle of Humboldt County, California. And most people think it came from either Mendocina Purps or Granddaddy Purple. But beyond that, it’s basically a marijuana mystery.
You can grow this strain either indoors or outdoors. But if you grow it outside, prepare for a slow process. Your plants won’t start putting out flowers until around 5 months.
On the other hand, if you go with an indoor grow, you’ll see buds appear much quicker. Probably around 8 to 10 weeks or so.
But it’s a bit of a trade off. Indoor grows tend to produce smaller harvests when compared to an effective outdoor grow.
Either way, expect your plant to produce some really beautiful flowers. Buds will be light green with lots of red hairs. And you should also see stunning purple accents mixed in there too.
