Purple Urkel (also spelled Purple Urkle) is a strain of cannabis which shares its name with Steve Urkel, the fictional character from the American television series Family Matters.
Leafly has said of the strain: "Purple Urkle Has a complex flavor blend of skunk, berries, and grapes. A heavy indica that is often too strong for some people. Recommended for night time use, Urkle is long lasting and works great for insomnia sufferers."
In 2013, High Times included Purple Urkel on its list of the top "15 Super-Potent Pot Strains with Awesome Names." The magazine's Mary Jane Gibson wrote: "Steve Urkel, the geeky neighbor on Family Matters, was known for several catchphrases, including his 'Did I do that?' Since Purple Urkel is said to be good for treating insomnia, that sounds like an excellent thing."
