Overview of Purple Urkle

Purple Urkle is an indica dominant strain, consisting of only 20 percent sativa genetics. This strain presents beautiful buds which, though on the small side, are nice and dense. The coloration should reflect the strainâ??s name, with purple hues accenting the bright green. Orange pistils make for a gorgeous color contrast, and the whole package should be sealed up with a coating of trichomes.

Purple Urkleâ??s aroma is primarily sweet, with a funky fruitiness that rounds out with grapes and just enough skunk to convince you of its potency.

Purple Urkle doesnâ??t get its potency from THC. Its THC content usually hovers around 15 percent, and rarely climbs higher. Its CBD content is fairly low too, topping out at around 0.3 percent.

Potential Medical Effects of Purple Urkle

Lineage of Purple Urkle

Hailing from Humboldt county, Purple Urkle has become famous throughout different regions as "Purple Urple" and/or "The Urkle."

Consensus has proposed the strain cropped onto the cannabis market in the 1980s.
