@Thule:
See HERE. It's the VIR database, go to the "oil and fiber" tab and search for "cannabis". Accession numbers 313 and 315 are both on page 13 and were collected in Kirov, Russia in 1957. Both strains are seemingly pretty similar.

The Purpurea Ticinensis is a swiss red hemp strain. She is the result of eight years of selective breeding at 1300 meter elevation in the Tessinger mountains. Purpurea is an early blooming, red stemmed strain that turns completely purple-red in the cold. She grows anywhere and has no problems adapting. She is also resistant agains mold diseases. We are proud of the Purpurea Ticinensis, because she is an original swiss strain, and contains a low, natural amount of THC. She is suited as an ornamental plant or for essential oils because of her unbelievable scent.

@new3: Uhhh... this is the "HEMP seed hub"; the purpurea is a drug type cannabis variety most certainly containing genetics from Afghanistan, Pakistan or the Maghreb maybe crossed with Swiss hemp varieties. I'm not sure whether the stroy told by Felix Kautz about the Ticino grandmas is true or not (besides, it's not Tessinger, if ever it'll be tessiner)... Back in the days when Owl/SwissSeeds (United Seedbanks) still was in Switzerland and hemp/cannabis cultivation was semi-legal, most of the outdoor crop got pollinated by fiber/seed hemp strains. Felix simply made a passion of that and selected hybrids with the benefits of both parents.
Due to the current law in Switzerland, all the old fiber/seed hemp varieties have disappeared (there may still be a few seeds stocked in heirloom seed banks, there's at least one at the VIR). What remains is the French Fedora 17 and privately grown drug type cannabis hybrids ;( . Oh, and the Swiss hemp varieties usually were green not purple .
Truth be told, your right insofar that the purpurea is the only officially remaining and still cultivated Swiss cannabis variety no matter whether it is pure or not.

Do I get that right, you're from Switzerland?
But why would you be proud of a drug strain with low THC? That's rather an effect obtained by crossing drug type cannabis with fiber/seed hemp and has nothing to do with "natural amounts"...

Small addition:
It seems that seeds from Carmagnola, Finola, a variety called Speedy, and a SwissMix (notably all THC-free hemp cultivars) are available at cannabis-helvetica.ch SHOP. Don't know why and how they can do that with the current Swiss legislation... still awaiting an email answer.

Just wondering why you want such a variety...
Because in Yugoslavia, mainly all the Hungarian varieties and the Italian Fibranova have been cultivated. Nowadays it's mainly Serbia which cultivates hemp and it seems as if they were gradually switching to 'Novosadska konoplja' which is a Fleischmann hemp selection and therefore of Italian origin.
Also, the Fleischmann hemp had a strong influence on Hungarian varieties and therefore most of the agricultural hemp in Serbia is closely related to Italian hemp.

On the other hand, I suppose that in this region you have a fair chance of still finding feral hemp (either endemic or more likely fibre hemp gone wild). Best chance here would be to find someone living there .

You are a gentleman and a scholar, OO. I'm looking forward to following your hemp explorations.
