Purple Urkle aka “Purple Urple” or “The Urkle”
Purple Urkle is the gold standard Purple strain for many people. It has a sweet and skunky smell like the aromas of tropical fruit, grapes, sometimes cereal, and skunk. While remaining very relaxing and mood elevating, it’s generally not as drowsy or sleep-inducing as many other Purple strains.
This strain’s been around since the 80’s, and it became a fantastic find which came from the Emerald Triangle area of Northern California. Purple Urkle may also be referred to as “Purple Urple” and occasionally “The Urkle”. It’s generally agreeable to say that this marijuana strain is an offspring of either Mendo Purps, or GDP. It made its way into the NorCal medical marijuana clubs in the mid-90’s and has been going strong ever since. On top of that, this grandfather strain has been crossed into a wide variety of strains due to its divine coloration, smell, and overall stability.
