2. Conclusion of the contract
An offer for the conclusion of a contract of sale is originates with the client, when they – after having filled in the order page in full – click on the button “Buy”. The client remains bound to their order for a period of one week. The contract shall be mandatory if we accept the order during said period, in accordance with 2.3.
After they have sent their order, the client will receive an automated e-mail in which we confirm receipt of the order (order receipt confirmation). This order receipt confirmation has the sole purpose of informing that we have received the order.
A valid contract is not actually formed until we declare acceptance of it. We declare acceptance of the contract when we send an invoice to the client, confirm the order (order acceptance confirmation), confirm in an e-mail that the goods have left our warehouse (shipping confirmation), or at the latest, by the delivery of the goods.
A contract can be formed only for articles which are expressly stated in our invoice or on the order acceptance confirmation or the shipping confirmation. Ultimately, this signifies the full extent of the service.
3. Price and shipping costs
All prices are prices net of VAT in Swiss francs (CHF). We reserve the right to modify prices, conditions and vintages indicated on our website, the reference date being the day of the order.
The shipping costs are invoiced in addition to the net selling prices.
4. Payment and retention of title
Payment of the sales price may be made either by credit card (VISA or Mastercard), Debitcard, Postcard or per invoice (using the Swissbilling SA service), according to what is scheduled and available on the website.
When paying by a credit or debit card, the transmitted data shall be encrypted.
When paying per invoice, it will be sent to you by Swissbilling, separately from the package, by e-mail, or by post as chosen by you. The services of Swissbilling incur additional billing fees. The maximum amount for a first purchase with Swissbilling is CHF 300.00. The payment deadline is 30 days from receipt of the invoice. For security reasons, the invoice address and the delivery address must be indicated.

Except in the case of per invoice payments, orders are payable immediately.
As a client, you are entitled to compensation or retention rights only insofar as your claim has been judicially noted by a decision that has become res judicata or is incontestable. It will not be derogated by this disposition to your rights in the event of any defects with the delivered goods.
Our online store mainly targets the needs of a private clientele. For this reason, it is impossible for us to draft invoices, receipts or VAT statements for your online orders at a later time.
5. Delivery and transfer of risk
The Seller shall limit deliveries to within the territory of Switzerland. Deliveries shall be made directly to the delivery address and the contact person notified by the buyer.
Delivery will take place on the condition that we ourselves have been supplied in good time and in due form by our suppliers. In the event of force majeure incidents, such as strikes or other social movements, riots, war or natural catastrophes, or if deliveries from the manufacturer or an upstream supplier are halted, no delivery delay shall be acknowledged as such. The Seller assumes no responsibility for delivery delays attributable to manufacturers or third parties.
If not all the ordered goods are available in stock, we will be entitled to make partial deliveries. If, following the conclusion of the contract, it should turn out that some goods cannot be delivered (in whole or in part) for reasons not attributable to the Seller, the client will be entitled to divest himself of the contract.
Our service consists of a shipment obligation; it will be accomplished when the consignment is handed over to the person in charge of transportation. After the shipping, risk of accidental degradation and loss with the goods shall be transferred to the client. We are not required to assume any liability for the company that provides the transportation.
6. Responsibility for defects
Our responsibility for defects is limited to the following aspects: incomplete delivery, or manufacturing or packaging defects. All responsibility concerning the intrinsic qualities of the Cannabis flowers or plants or medicinal herbs contained in our Products, is declined. Also not covered by the guarantee is normal wear and tear or consequences resulting from inappropriate handling or deterioration on the part of the buyer or third parties, as well as defects attributable to external circumstances.
To the extent that the normal course of affairs allows it, you are expected to check delivered products and to inform our customer service team of noted defects without delay. If you do not do this, the products will be considered accepted. Acceptance will under any circumstances be acknowledged if the client has not sent a complaint by e-mail to the customer service team within a period of 3 days after delivery.
A defective product must be sent back accompanied by a copy of the invoice and a detailed description of the defect(s). The return address must be referred to the buyer by e-mail upon receipt of their complaint in writing. Any transport costs incurred are to be paid by the client.
We provide a guarantee service, with the delivery of defect-free goods (replacement supply). Replaced products will become the property of the Seller. The client will not be entitled to any price reduction or credit.
These provisions shall not apply in the case of minor defects. The client will not receive any guarantees (in the legal sense) from the supplier. This exemption of responsibility also encompasses all complaints in competition with warranty rights, whether these are rights under the contract (article 97 sqq. CO), or ones recognised in connection with an illegal act (article 41 sqq. CO), or ones recognised with challenging the contract on error grounds (article 23 sqq. CO), etc.
The Seller accepts no responsibility vis-à-vis descriptions written by third parties (clients in particular) included in the online store, or vis-à-vis clients’ comments that are published on social networks.
All cases of contractual violations and their legal consequences, as well as all the rights of the client (whatever title they may claim), are definitively regulated in these General Sales Conditions. All other rights of the client – regardless of their legal title – will be invalid to the extent that the law allows it. Neither the Seller nor their agents or potential auxiliaries accept any responsibility for damages that have not occurred with the goods themselves, in particular: consecutive damages, lost profits or any other material damage suffered by the buyer.
