Purple Urkle is perhaps one of the most famous Indica strains around yet it’s origins are still mostly a mystery. What we do know is that the strain has been around since the 1980’s and was originally grown in the Emerald Triangle area of northern California (Humboldt County). It is regularly referred to as “Purple Urple” and occasionally “The Urkle”.
As with many heavy Indica strains it’s effects can be quite lethargic and relaxing making it an excellent strain for insomnia and anxiety. It is also used regularly for pain management and as an appetite stimulant. Due to it’s sedating effects it is best left for late evening or night time use. It has also been known to be a ‘two-hitter-quitter’ strain – meaning two hits is generally enough to get the full effects. With THC percentages well into the 20’s we would recommend lower doses to start, especially for novice users.
