Strain Description

Not much is known about Purple Urkle’s origin story, except that it first appeared in the 1980s. Some online sources claim that the cultivar’s heritage can be traced back to Mendocino Purps, a well-known cannabis strain produced in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle. Others speculate that Purple Urkle could be a phenotype of either Mendocino Purps or Granddaddy Purple. Regardless of its origin, Purple Urkle’s resplendent purple coloring, due to a healthy amount of anthocyanins, undoubtedly contributed to its name. Lab tests indicate larger percentages of the terpene myrcene contribute to Purple Urkle’s earthy, musky aromas, while the presence of alpha-pinene counteract the terpene’s more sedative effects. Users compliment Purple Urkle for its berry flavors and its impressive THC content, which clocks in between 17-22%, depending on grow conditions. Purple Urkle takes its time to mature — flowering around 8 weeks when grown indoors, though it will flourish in outdoor environments, too. Best for intermediate growers, Purple Urkle requires attention to nutrition and environmental conditions to yield flowers at their most potent.
