@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?
We are proud of the Purpurea Ticinensis because she ... contains a low, natural amount of THC
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"...
