History Purple Urkle, a famous Indica strain with mysterious origins, has been around since the 1980s and was originally grown in northern California. Its purple genetics come from its lineage, which includes Grape Ape and Granddaddy Purple. The strain is known for its sweet and skunky aroma, with hints of tropical fruit, grapes, and skunk. Users often describe its taste as similar to grape soda with a hint of berries. Purple Urkle’s effects are typically lethargic and relaxing, making it suitable for insomnia, anxiety, pain management, and appetite stimulation. With high THC percentages well into the 20s, it is recommended to start with lower doses for novice users. Additionally, Purple Urkle is popular among medical cannabis patients for providing relief across a wide spectrum of ailments such as insomnia, anxiety disorders, depression, stress-related conditions like fibromyalgia and joint problems. However it should be used cautiously due to potential side effects such as dizziness and headaches.
