It’s not all bad news!

Hello, and welcome to Cloud Riders Store, where I design, manufacture and sell accessories for Storz & Bickel Vaporisers (source manufacture). At the moment Iโ€™m working on few projects, the Mighty Grinder is the main one. Itโ€™s a Grinder that fits on the Mighty & Crafty vaporiser, using a similar filling aid device so you can grind right into it and savour every trichome. I’ve just moved from Melbourne Australia to the Netherlands and I’m almost finished designing and testing a Charging Stand for the Mighty.

It looks like I won’t be able to run the Indiegogo campaign, they’ve simi freezed my account and below is their email.

From Indiegogo

Hi Dirar,

We are reaching out to inform you that our payment processor, Stripe, sent us an update regarding your campaign “Herb Grinder fits securely on Might & Crafty Vapes“. We’ve provided their response below:

“Stripe unfortunately cannot process transactions on this account as it exceeds our present risk tolerance, as determined by a combination of local regulatory requirements, commercial partnerships, operational burden, and other pertinent factors. As identified in the Stripe Terms of Service, โ€œany information we collect may affect our assessment of your overall risk to our business. You acknowledge that in some cases, such information may lead to suspension or termination of your Stripe Account.” Stripe may periodically update this information as part of our underwriting criteria and risk analysis procedures.

Effective today, this user will no longer be able to accept transactions on their account. We intend to refund any settled payments on the account back to the cardholders, if applicable.

We are sorry we had to take this action and regret the impact this decision has on you and your userโ€™s business.”

I honestly don’t know where to go from here, I’ve appealed and waiting for an answer but I don’t believe that Indiegogo will allow me to run the campaign.

For that reason I’ve approached Storz & Bickel hoping that they might be interested in bringing the product to the market and they said they are curious to hear more so fingers crossed. I’ve emailed a link to the YouTube video and I should hear back from them after the 5th of October as the person who contacted me was going on a holiday at that same day so I will keep you posted when I hear back.

Maybe I just have to find a Co-founder to help me with this step. Or maybe the whole thing is a bust and it won’t go anywhere. As I said in the beginning I don’t know where to go from here at this moment. I might be able to fund the whole thing by myself early next year.

I’ve moved to the new place, actually it’s the roof of someone, I live in a Zolder as they call it here, It’s a bit height tight and I’m a tall guy 186cm so I’m finding navigating the space a bit challenging apart from that I live with a very nice and likeminded guy, and he is sold on switching to a Mighty or Crafty and ditching the joints (hear that S&B I’m literally working for you for free).

I’ve started learning Dutch and I’m really loving it here in the Netherlands, it’s a smart forward thinking country, plus you can find great weed here, and mushrooms; maybe this weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it for this week, have a good weekend and stay safe โ˜ฎ๏ธ โœŒ๏ธ peace out.
