It’s history is as complex as its flavor palate. A native California strain, which origins are believed to stem from a select phenotype of either Granddaddy Purple or Mendocino Purps, while the nose is a blend of skunk, berry, and fresh grapes.
It would seem that strain was named after Jaleel White’s nerdy character in the popular ’90s sitcom “Family Matters.” It’s unclear whether the strain was named after Steve Urkel, but if we had to venture a guess, we would say that its indica-dominant properties might have you bumping into inanimate objects, followed by Urkel’s famous, nasal-y catchphrase: “Did I do that?” 🙂
The effects from the Purple Urkle strain are extremely relaxing and can become quite sedative in large doses. Accordingly, it can be a great aid for those with insomnia hoping to fall asleep faster.
Being a potent Indica, we definitely recommend this for night-time use. Also a great cannabis strain to medicate with after long hours of tough labor (yard work, sports practice, etc…). It has been applauded for its ability to eradicate stress and provide full-body pain relief.
