In the history books of the future, 2015 will be viewed as a pivotal turning point. Amid the other revolutions that occurred during this momentous year, two particular phenomena rose to the fore: the rapid rise of CBD and the first rumblings indicating the coming Bitcoin revolution.
Back then, both Bitcoin and CBD were regarded with considerable skepticism. People weren’t sure if CBD was legal, and the concept of Bitcoin was so arcane that the majority of the populace couldn’t figure out why this cryptocurrency had any genuine value.
Now, however, the tables have turned. CBD is rapidly becoming a critical component of the mainstream natural health industry, and Bitcoin continues to smash records and investor expectations.
Secret Nature has always been ahead of the curve. Learn how we pioneered the early days of Bitcoin eCommerce and revolutionized the CBD industry, and find out how Bitcoin and CBD are converging to usher in an era of unprecedented freedom.
Secret Nature was one of the first eCommerce companies to accept Bitcoin
Secret Nature launched in 2017 with the mission of bringing top-shelf quality to the CBD flower industry. At the time, smokable CBD flower was practically unheard of, and our ground-floor operation set an enduring standard for indoor-grown hemp buds.
We also did something that practically no other eCommerce company, CBD or not, had done before. We made it possible to buy our CBD flower products with Bitcoin.
What is Bitcoin, and why is it important?
If you ask anyone who’s relatively familiar with cryptocurrencies, they’ll tell you that Bitcoin was created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto. What isn’t so well known, however, is that “Satoshi Nakamoto” is an alias, and nobody really knows who created Bitcoin or why.
Its origins shrouded in secrecy, the world has gradually realized that Bitcoin is a viable decentralized currency with no administrators, masters, or central banks. It’s taken over 10 years for the true value of Bitcoin to trickle into mainstream finance, and it will likely be another decade before global economies come to grips with the true impact of cryptocurrencies.
Fiat currency (USD, EUR, GBP, etc.) is no longer based on anything except its own ephemeral value. The value of gold, silver, and other precious metals is based on the rarity of physical resources.
The value of Bitcoin, on the other hand, is based on its own scarcity. Bitcoins must be mined using data on the internet, and doing so requires significant computer hardware resources.
Due to their scarcity, Bitcoins have inherent value that is decentralized and distributed using blockchain technology. As a result, it’s impossible to just “print more Bitcoins,” ensuring that the value of this cryptocurrency will remain tied to its scarcity.
Why is Bitcoin ideal for the CBD industry?
The CBD industry has had a hard time breaking free of its roots in intoxicating cannabis. Likewise, Bitcoin has had trouble convincing the world of its safety and value.
As a result, these two seemingly separate facets of contemporary society have intermeshed surprisingly well during their parallel evolution. Bitcoin allows CBD companies to take payments without government overreach, and CBD has introduced the benefits of Bitcoin to consumers who would otherwise be unaware.
CBD companies have traditionally faced difficulty accessing banking and payment processing services. The 2018 Farm Bill opened the door to conventional CBD banking, and recently, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has cleared CBD companies to access banking services.
Regardless, handling money as a CBD company can be needlessly challenging. By transferring Bitcoins from a customer’s wallet directly to the company’s wallet without any intermediaries, Bitcoin allows CBD companies to bypass fiat currency regulations and do business freely.
Fiat currency and mainstream medicine are relics of the past
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin will become increasingly important as time goes by. Already, banks and payment processors are refusing to do business with individuals and brands based on their political affiliations.
In time, the government and Big Tech will be capable of silencing and financially handicapping anyone they see fit. Bitcoin won’t lose relevance in the CBD industry just because hemp companies can now usually access traditional financial services. On the contrary, decentralized, peer-to-peer currencies may become even more critical to the survival of free commerce.
At the same time that Bitcoin has shaken faith in financial norms, CBD has awakened the public to the power they hold over their own health. Disillusioned by conventional medical treatments that don’t work or make things worse, countless consumers have become willing to pay Bitcoins or anything else to access CBD and its seemingly miraculous benefits.
Bitcoin and CBD are the future
Together, CBD and Bitcoin will provide the world with alternatives to failed mainstream medical practices and absurd fiat currency systems. Just as fiat currency has plundered the world and led to massive wealth inequality, contemporary medicine has centralized wealth in the hands of hospital administrators and pharmaceutical corporations while harming or killing countless innocent people.
Bitcoin isn’t issued by corrupt central banks or controlled by financial regulators. CBD doesn’t have any significant side effects, and its immense medicinal benefits are well-documented.
Despite a constant onslaught of negative news stories, the world is more educated, wealthier, and more free than at any other point in history. This trend will continue, and CBD and Bitcoin will place even more freedom, health, and prosperity in the hands of the people.
CBD puts health in the hands of the people
Almost every prescription drug has dangerous side effects. The majority of modern medical treatments are interventionist, and they can lead to serious long-term complications.
CBD is mild and gentle, and it harnesses the body’s own resources to promote overall health and well-being. Plus, hundreds of studies have been conducted into the usefulness of CBD for specific conditions.
You don’t need a doctor’s prescription to buy CBD. You can purchase it today online. You can even purchase it with Bitcoin if you like.
CBD provides you with freedom from drugs and treatments that harm as much as they help. It’s a natural medicinal solution that was made possible by our modern technological age.
Bitcoin brings freedom to personal finance
If you’re lucky, you put some money aside into savings each month. You’re comforted by the cushion you’ve accumulated, and you hope it will help you whether life’s many obstacles.
Every dollar in your bank account is, however, devalued the moment another dollar is printed. The United States is nearly $30 trillion in debt, and each taxpayer is on the hook for over $200,000.
In the blink of an eye, the modern economic system could collapse, and your dollars could suddenly become worth less than the paper they’re printed on. Even in the event of financial collapse, however, your Bitcoins would retain their value.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide freedom from fiat currencies built atop lies and empty promises. At the rate Bitcoin is gaining value, this blockchain-distributed currency can help individuals gain massive wealth even within our irreparably flawed fiat currency system.
