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.

Aroma

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

Qualities

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.

Grow Medium

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