General Information

Type:  Indica-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  Thought to be a phenotype of Mendocino Purps

Geographic Origin:  California, USA

Seed Company/Clone: Clone only

Description: A California medical scene cut that is dated back to the late 1980′s, the Urkle (also called Purple Urple, and Purple Urkel) is thought to have come from the Mendo Purps line.  It’s a slow-vegging plant that almost always turns a deep shade of purple by the time it’s finished. It’s the purple plant of choice for many, as it’s known for being more potent and flavorful than many of the others.


Story: Purple Urkle is thought to be an inbred line dating back to at least 1989, possibly quite a bit earlier.  Its origins are thought to be that of a pure Indica, likely coming from Afghanistan or Pakistan.  It made its way into the NorCal medical clubs in the mid-90’s and has been going strong ever since, being crossed into a wide variety of strains due to its unmistakable coloration, smell, and overall stability.


Growing Information

Flowering Time: 8 weeks

Preferred Growing Medium: Grows bush-style, grows very slowly in vegetative state and doesn’t quite double in height when in flower.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Skunky and sweet dark fruit fragrance with notes of nag champa incense

Flavor: Grapey, sweet, and musky — Urkle is the gold standard Purple taste for many people

Effects: Very relaxing and mood elevating, it’s generally not as narcotic and drowsy as many Purple strains.  In smaller dosages, it can be a very functional strain, but at higher dosages, it can indeed get extremely relaxing to the point where sleep can result.  Great medicinal value for general relaxation, anti-anxiety, appetite stimulation, sleep aid, and pain relief.
