There will be markets for whole crop plants, and in phases of development, from sprout to pre- and post-fertilization, for transplanting, and harvesting, by harvesting method, fresh and cured, with seed and seedless

Everything else is process-dependent, based on feedstock, harvesting and processing methods.

Legal validation for
delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of less than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis, for Industrial Hemp, or more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis, but less than 0.6 percent on a dry weight basis, for Research Hemp

Processed
Industrial Hemp commodity plant derivatives:

Viable seeds, for planting

Seeds for dehulling for oil

Roots, for processing

Stalks, for
decortication, with specified moisture content, for fiber
 

Biomass, with specified moisture content, by grades


Cannabis plants classified as medicinal, or for medicinal purposes and nutritional and food consumption, are a higher layer, with Federal FDA Regulation.

Within this class is classifications by chemical composition, including chemical elements.

Those will be processed at a higher level by method of processing, from CO2 extraction to nanotech, producing derived commodities.
