Purple Urkle

Mendocino Purple

Purple Urkle, aka Purple Urple, or just the Urkle for short, has the legendary purple DNA from Humboldt/Mendocino circa the late 1980's. The name has nothing to do with Steve Urkel.

The purple phenos give the Urkle the dark color, dense smallish nugs, and sweet flavor purple is known for. The Urkle features lots of pistils which are often bright orange covering the purple tinged bud and leaf. The plants grow slowly in vegetative mode and don't yield significantly, but make for flavorful and powerful harvests. The clone only Urkle has been used in many breeding projects since becoming huge in the 90's. The potency is quite high on this medicine which can produce drowsiness and provide pain relief even with small doses depending on experience. The classic purple aromatics of a sweet grape-perfumy and slightly skunky profile are pronounced in this strain.
