Chill Out With CBD has changed payment processors and will now exclusively accept bitcoin through OpenNode, a bitcoin-only lightning network-enabled payment channel.
Chill Out With CBD seeks to provide our customers with a safe, reliable experience when using cryptocurrencies to purchase vape products. Bitcoin has never been compromised in its 10-year history despite numerous attacks and is the “gold standard” of security. While we continue to offer the convenience of paying with a variety of altcoins we highly recommend trying Bitcoin over the Lightning Network and our here to help with any questions.
The lightning network (LN) is a new payment protocol upgrade for bitcoin. Often referred to as the off-chain or 2nd layer scaling approach, LN allows for instantaneous and almost fee-less bitcoin transactions. You no longer have to pay on-chain miner fees associated with regular bitcoin transactions and will have confirmation that your payment was settled immediately.
Note: Lightning Network is not a separate digital currency from bitcoin - LN is a payment protocol built on top of the bitcoin blockchain and maintains the same, if not better, security/privacy that bitcoin’s 1st layer offers.
First, you'll need a Bitcoin wallet that lets you receive, hold, and spend Bitcoin on-chain (regular) and via the lightning network. For the quickest and most simple experience, at Vape Crypto we recommend Blue Wallet for you to make secure, successful payments to businesses. You can download either on the Apple App store or on Google Play store. If you’d like to use your desktop, you can download Bitlum, a chrome extension.
For advanced users who would like to set up their own non-custodial bitcoin and lightning node, we recommend Zap for desktop.
If you don't have bitcoin in your wallet yet, you'll need to buy some. Every country and region is different, so you'll want to do some research before choosing an exchange.
For US residents, we recommend CashApp.
If you’d like to use your desktop, we recommend Coinbase or Gemini.
Exchanges do not send bitcoin payments immediately and also do not have lightning network support, so they are not good for paying businesses. To use your Bitcoin, withdraw your Bitcoin from the exchange to your on-chain wallet before attempting to spend it.
If using Blue Wallet, make sure to create two wallets:
1. On-chain (regular) wallet
Needed to receive your bitcoin from the exchange or wherever else you store your bitcoin.
2. Lightning network wallet
To move your bitcoin from on-chain to your lightning wallet, select your lightning wallet, click manage funds, then click refill from your on-chain wallet and set your desired amount to top up your lightning network wallet.
Now you’re ready to make payments over LN!
Making a lightning network payment is fast, inexpensive, and secure. There are a few ways to pay with LN.
We believe that partnering with OpenNode will increase security, better user experience, and provide a more secure way to spend bitcoin on chilloutwithcbd.com Thank you for your business, and feel free to reach out to use via the onsite chat if you need anymore information about buying CBD with Bitcoin!
