Natural Legal Coca (Available Soon)
The coca leaf has been used as medicine in its natural form for at least 6000 years, it was also one of the first internationally traded commodities among indigenous nations before the emergence of colonial Catholic and European imperialism. It is well-known among the indigenous peoples that the coca leaf has the power to combat, prevent and cure more than a dozen major illnesses and debilitating health conditions including hypertension, anemia, diabetes, low blood pressure, and according to Pope Francis, "is good for altitude sickness too with no negative effects" (2015).
Become a Coca Tea Company Investor
In 2019 thanks to the blockchain we will begin to offer the famous tea developed by American, Col. David Wright based on the same traditional indigenous recipe served to Pope Francis when visiting Bolivia, using Wright's own pressurized vessel brewing method.
The 'new tea company' he wants to start will be a blockchain and cryptocurrency investor venture to establish a production and packaging facility in Bolivia that will be staffed and operated by indigenous people from Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru using Andean coca from the Cochabamba region.
We are confident that we can achieve success in this development because of special international laws that protect the indigenous people rights. Also their right to access to global markets, our right to make non-state private sector commerce with our members and exploit cross-cultural trade with other indigenous tribal nations.
Only investors holding cryptocurrency will be privileged to the development and production until such a point that we can stop sweating imperialistic and capitalistic prejudice and politics.
Our challenge is captivating a large enough audience to make the production of 250,000 liters of tea feasible for our first run then maintain production at that level for 3-9 months.
Our Coca Leaf Tea
There are many challenges we faced as a company and starting in Venezuela, we can however attest to being the most highly qualified scientific experts and authorities on coca tea production and perhaps some other coca-leaf based products because the protagonist of our new offshore endeavor is a recognized environmentalist, goodwill ambassador and Kentucky colonel that personally developed, produced and prepared coca tea legally and publicly in Venezuela for over five years, even serving tea to the country's President and visiting presidents. During such time he conducted a study of health claims among his consumers, his research revealed that the people who consumed his tea were both healthier and that their ailments and conditions became less severe or non-existent, which Col. David Wright offers as proof to anyone who disputes his claims.
Being capable of doing business internationally and sharing the benefits of the coca leaf with everyone is the greatest challenge we faced. It is also looking to realize that many corporations oppose this effort, because they know that they could lose billions if people had the Colonel's triple strong coca tea as available to them as readily as English tea or green tea.
It was not until now with the blockchain that we can legitimately present our product ideal and begin production of a very unique, healthy, and lifesaving natural medicine.
Coca Leaf as a Food Ingredient
In Colombia today, the Stepan Company has a facility in Manizales that is involved in coca alkaloid extraction and the production of the secret Coca-Cola ingredient. The alkaloids in the extract are numerous more than 17 have been identified with great medicinal value. There are a number of alkaloids that cannot be found in any other plant (leaf) in the most notable one is cocaine, however there are several others of greater therapeutic and medicinal value that are normally discarded in the process that extracts the alkaloid base from the leaf.
Throughout the Andes the plant is used in traditional medicine and to elaborate more than 100 food and cosmetic products. Our company has been involved in making cookies, cakes, candy, wine and a range of other preparations. Our effort here is to promote the use of coca leaf tea (non-toxic) and other whole natural coca leaf products including flour, cured cut leaves, liquor, wine, mouthwash, antibacterial soap and toothpaste. We will offer both natural and decocainized preparation of our famous tea.
It takes about 100 pounds of dried leaf and an array of more than 50 chemicals to extract 3 grams of pure cocaine. The cost of one pound of dried coca leaf for tea or as a food ingredient is $30, so it would cost over $1000 per gram to use alimentary coca leaf, moreover it is illegal. Just not our cup of tea!
These additional beneficial alkaloids from the coca leaf can only be utilized from products using the entire natural leaf. Most people learned long ago, don't mess with mother nature!
Legality of the Leaf
Currently Bolivia is the only nation where the coca leaf is legal as a commodity, however since Bolivia is a landlocked nation and has no access to the sea, so it cannot be a member of the Hague Convention or take advantage the maritime laws which could allow the coca leaf to become an export food and medicine commodity. The coca leaf is illegal in most other nations based on international law the civil or commercial aviation cannot export it, many nations prohibit the leaf because it being the source of narcotics like cocaine hydrochloride, cocaine sulfate and cocaine nitrate, the leaf is not prohibited however on the high-seas.
Coca leaf can be found in Amsterdam in some of the upscale coffee shops and private clubs. Over 12 tons of coca tea bags are sold to tourists annually and more than 10 tons of tea bags are shipped globally from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru each year, it is hard to give good estimates since most of the commerce is disguised and in violation of customs. In Peru a box of coca tea bags is between $3-$12 depending on the type of shop, leaves are purchased openly in the streets of Cuzco, Peru for $1-$3 for 20-100 grams. In the United States and Europe after logistics the price is between 8-25x higher on some products.
In Colombia, Ecuador and Peru the coca leaf is legal among only the indigenous peoples of the Andes, it is used in food, it is not legal for exportation or commercial production, cultivation of coca is very illegal in Peru, except that is for producing coca leaves for the Stepan Company who makes the extract for the Coca-Cola Company. To the best of our knowledge the coca leaf is still legal in Jujuy, Argentina and Southern Chile where it is still employed by indigenous peoples..
