In 2002 a group of young and creative people in Austria and Switzerland came up with the crazy idea of uniting cannabis and ice tea in one – innovative – new product.Even back then, Switzerland was the place to grow the world’s best quality hemp in terms of both aroma and flavour.That’s why Gerhard Rubatscher and Peter Wurm have been cultivating the aromatic cannabis variety CSWISS® for their ice tea there for almost two decades.The excellent quality of this variety, as well as careful handling, guarantee the unique cannabis flavour with zero percent THC that CSWISS® fans have come to love.
The two CSWISS® inventors founded a company in Austria in 2003 called Seagull Trading GmbH. Establishing CSWISS®– THE ORIGINAL CANNABIS EIS TEA in the market was a laborious process, and competing against the major corporations in the beverage segment was an enormous challenge, but the two entrepreneurs and partners achieved it.The success of CSWISS®in their domestic market of Austria, where over 1 million cans have been sold, is impressive proof of the potential for THC-free cannabis ice tea in the consumer market.CSWISS®is now retailed in more than 20 countries around the world.
CSWISS®has been produced in Austria for more than 15 years.The recipe is a closely guarded secret.A sophisticated process is used to extract the THC from the cannabis syrup.The unique combination of black tea and cannabis is what gives CSWISS® its special, slightly tangy flavour.
The distinctive bright orange, eco-friendly and sustainable 0.25 litre cardboard can is the perfect packaging for a unique-tasting product like CSWISS®.The ice cube with the hemp leaf intensifies the effect and represents a clear commitment to the cannabis plant. It is also trademark-protected worldwide.This unusual combination of ingredients appeals, first and foremost, to young, trendy and quality conscious individuals who are looking for an unconventional taste experience – without any intoxicating effects.
