Yes, that seems to be the lingo in that sector of the cannabis growing world.

Most of the time its grown for its seeds oil anyway. Unless for cbd then you either grow it because your passionate or because the permits were cheaper and it conceils an illegal operation. Take your pick

That may be true these days, but the stalks are what they make rope and canvas and stuff like that from. What a great plant!!!

He seems to be growing for CBD production rather than fiber or the dreaded grain (info about grain growers mixing badly with sinsemilla growers is in that thread), but its all hemp in the eyes of the law.
Fiber growing sounds like it could be an interesting beast. Imagine a bunch of hippies decide that their 38% THC bud can't get much danker so they tack slightly and instead spend the next few decades worth of pleasure seeking energy and cannabis expertise trying to breed the most comfortable source of underwear.
I've had some chat with socioecologist about his product. They are not breeding for fiber or seed but high CBD fems. He seems quite proud of his seed lines but they are way more expensive than low cannabinoid hemp varieties. Cheaper than dope seed but you have to buy 7,000 seeds minimum order.

I was one of ten people that cut clones and fed the entire La Junta, CO operation. Those plants lab tested 22-28% cbd. After multiple failed attempts to start new seed stock in late 2015 viable pollen was applied to certain mums showing traits and qualities more suited for a massive outdoor operation from being cut and duplicated so often clones would lose vigor because 300,000 were taken from a handfull of moms that remained from 3 original particular bred genomes. One of our Colorado phenomes was purple with a massive indica style leaf. One particular large lady had a silver kinda albino branch on it. Genetics on these kind of plants are so wacky it is damn near impossible to breed. And thats why that price is so high. I grew one of these plants from seed and it topped itself somehow and grew 2 heads. Smelled kinda like cherry cheesecake

because fiber is not the only option, seed crops, and seeds can be used .. for not only plant it..
eat it, extract oil, use it as a bait in fishing,,

I found this wild hemp field in 1975, in northwest Missouri...It was at least 80 acres...

I dried and smoked some, (who wouldn't have tried that in 1975?) but didn't get any kind of buzz at all...
Similar to if I smoked dried leaves I found in the woods...

Illinois & northern Kentucky are eat up with hemp, as is Indiana the last i heard. several states have proposed eradicating it but were sued by their own Fish & Game departments because so many bird species eat the seeds, and other critters use it for cover. around Rantoul Ill. the damn stuff grows in the gravel between train tracks. gets up so tall, along comes a train & SNIP! lots of pheasants there, or used to be. nothing but a headache after burning a log of it...dammit. it LOOKED pretty though...
