Definitions specific to hemp certification standards.

"Approved cultivar" means any variety designated as eligible for production by federal or state regulatory authorities.
"Hemp" (Cannabis sativa L. subsp. sativa) includes varieties of these kinds:
(a) Dioecious type: With male and female flowers on separate plants.
(b) Monoecious type: With male and female flowers on the same plant.
(c) Hybrids (unisexual female): With sterile male and fertile female flowers on the same plant.
Although traditionally a crop with a dioecious plant type, many monoecious varieties of hemp (Cannabis sativa L. subsp. sativa) have been developed. Hemp is sexually polymorphic and often produces many different ratios of intersexual plant types that can increase roguing requirements. Variety descriptions normally define these ratios.
"Hemp seed production" means a hemp seed production field established with an appropriate generation of certified seed intended to produce a subsequent generation of certified seed.
"THC" means delta-nine (Δ9) tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the component of hemp regulated by federal or state regulatory authorities.
"Variety" means a subdivision of a kind that is distinct, uniform, and stable; "distinct" in the sense that the variety can be differentiated by one or more identifiable morphological, physiological, or other characteristics from all other varieties of public knowledge; "uniform" in the sense that variations in essential and distinctive characteristics are describable; and "stable" in the sense that the variety will remain unchanged in its essential and distinctive characteristics and its uniformity when reproduced or reconstituted as required by the different categories of varieties.
"Volunteer plant" means an industrial hemp plant that was not intentionally planted and results from a previous crop.
