Taking a hike today in the sage covered foothills of our valley I was thinking back to when I started.
February 22, 2014 is significant because that is the day that I received the first Bitcoin payment. That payment was for the White Widow Max that I had grown in my basement tent. I worked on that strain for two years. Two years before that, I was looking closer into a technology I read about a few years back. Cryptocurreny - Bitcoin. Bitcoin, somewhat hard to wrap my head around at first.. My interest in general history, banking history, open source and distributed networks helped me understand Bitcoin .
I had developed a good supply of my White Widow for my chronic back pain. I was able to sell my extra at a Co-Op under the Medical Cannabis laws at the time. Everyone got paid the same, regardless of quality. It really didn’t pay that well and my stuff always sold fast. In the beginning of 2013 I was searching for ways to sell online and following Bitcoin even closer. By the end of 2013 I was building the Cannabits.net website and testing Bitcoin(BTC) and Ripple(XRP). I launched the site at the end of 2013, then started posting everywhere I could. I started getting interest after about two months of posting and answering questions.
Then, after having responded to number of orders and sending Bitcoin request addresses, I received a payment! I shipped that package and a few more orders started rolling in.
A lot has happened and changed in these six years. I appreciate everyone who has supported me and the growers that that produce this great plant. I plan on continuing to bring all of you great cannabis products. Thank all of you for supporting hand grown organic cannabis.
