A Guide To Buying CBD Hemp Flower On eBay (UK)

Did you know that you can buy weed on eBay? That’s right. Everyone’s favourite auction site is permitting the sale of CBD-rich cannabis flowers.

The sellers of CBD weed on eBay are operating under the assumption that cannabis with less than 0.2% THC is considered hemp and is, therefore, exempt from the UK’s Misuse Of Drugs Act.

While it is yet to be confirmed by any government source whether this is true, hundreds of kilos of CBD-rich hemp flower are being openly imported into the UK and sold in high streets and online throughout the country with no intervention from the authorities.

There’s also plenty of CBD buds being sold on eBay, usually labelled as ‘hemp tea’. But with this being an unregulated, quasi-legal and highly controversial industry, you need to be careful about buying CBD hemp buds online, especially on eBay.

And with that in mind, we thought it was about time someone produced a guide explaining how to buy CBD hemp flower on eBay.

Why use eBay when there are plenty of trustworthy online shops?

About a year ago, there was less than a handful of online shops selling hemp flowers (including High & Polite). Since then, the number of shops has grown to, with many new ones appearing all the time.  

And while many of these shops offer exceptional quality CBD strains, fast delivery and attentive customer service, many people are still using eBay to purchase their buds. And there are a few reasons why.

A big range of CBD flowers in one place

eBay is convenient in that it lets you view a large number of options in one place. You can then compare products, prices and sellers with ease before deciding what to purchase.  

  • Better deals

Most online shops charge about £11-13 per gram of high-grade hemp flower. The average of eBay is probably a bit cheaper, especially when it comes to orders of multiple grams.

  • You can pay with card or Paypal

Many shops that want to sell CBD-rich hemp buds run into problems when it comes to taking payments. Most banks don’t want to touch a company operating in the cannabis industry, and that goes for Paypal and other online payment services.

However, eBay uses Paypal for its payments And as the site is currently allowing hemp flower sales, that means you can pay for your CBD buds on eBay nice and easily with your Paypal account or debit/credit card.

  • Most online shops also sell on eBay

Most shops that sell via their own website also sell hemp flowers on eBay. Therefore, you can see numerous shops’ offerings next to each other, use a convenient payment method, and have the buyer protection that eBay offers.

Finding a quality product

When searching on eBay for high-CBD hemp flowers, you don’t have much information to go on. You have the product image (which is not always the best quality), the product description, and then the seller information.

Obviously, the product image will give you a fair idea of the bus structure and how it generally looks. Bear in mind, however, that these pictures will be of the sellers’ best nuggets and your order probably won’t look as good.

Ideally, you want the hemp buds to look well-structured – compact and solid. Try and avoid leafy-looking hemp unless you are after something on the cheaper end of the scale (which can be great for a joint-filler/tobacco alternative).

Vetting sellers

When it comes to sellers, the best way to vet them is to look at their seller rating. If there are any negative reviews or discrepancies, be wary. You ideally want 100% positive feedback.

Next, check the product description. How much information is given? Some sellers with offer up lots of info about how and where the hemp was grown, CBD and THC levels, and a brief description of how it looks, smells and taste.

Also, do not hesitate to send the seller a message. Ask questions about the product – the strain, quality, bud size, etc.

Trusted sellers

For the sake of this article, we ordered 3.5 grams of a strain called Red Berry with 18% CBD from a seller called LoveHemp420 (who have since opened their own online shop).

My order took a day to arrive. And the buds were of extremely high quality. I’ve bought from eBay before, but not for a while, and these buds were the best yet. They were sticky and dense, with strong berry aromas and really nice effects.

It also came with a photocopy of the lab analysis, which showed the strain to have 17.8% CBD, 0.17% CBC, 0.08% CBG, and 0% THC.

As is the often the case with online commerce, there are some scam listings on eBay. We are aware of a few hemp bud deals that have gone wrong, but not many. There have been reports of spice being sent instead of real hemp flowers.

Always make sure you order whole-plant hemp flowers/buds. It should look ‘organic’ – with tight leaves, obvious stems, and a clear bud-like structure.

  1. How’d you find the Red Berry Jack? The Gelato from HempElf is still my favourite so far as it gets me in a really good, uplifted mood.

  2. Orders from lovehemp420 on their direct site as well as eBay. Absolutely fantastic bud, smelt, tasted incredible. One of the best I’ve come across. Still needing to try their hash! Ordered late evening and it arrived next day!

    Have been ordering from other vendors for a while such as hempelf who I normally order amnesia from but thought I would try a new strain of flower and vendor and have not been disappointed with lovehemp420!

    Peace and love to all! SPREAD THE WORD OF CBD! 😀

    God bless

  3. I noticed the Red Berry but wasn’t sure about buying from ebay after I bought some CBG there and just after I paid the listing got pulled and the seller banned too I think. Thankfully I still received it but the experience was a bit daunting to be honest. Maybe ebay just have a problem with CBG being sold, CBD appears to be fine from the looks of things.

    Anyway thanks for the heads up Jack, I’ve been looking for more shops that sell quality flower for £10 a gram or less (a list of these would be good). I’m with loggs in not paying more than that. I want cheaper flowers to mix with the hash from cbdukproducts, as the effects are more potent when you mix the hash with flower in my experience.

    1. Yeah, there’s always a certain amount of sketchiness with eBay I guess.

      Their hash is brilliant, isn’t it?! I’ve got some Grapefruit Kush at the mo. For sure a nice boost to a CBD joint.

    2. A lot of lovehemp420 flowers are £10 a gram, Cheapest I’ve found so far and know they are trusted and active on eBay. If you’re worried i would suggest ordering directly from their website.

      Thanks jack! I’ve also heard they’ve got new strains coming super excited to try them!

      I ordered from Professorhemp last week as well £11 a gram and had to pay extra for delivery (another eBay vendor).

      Will update if I find any other vendors at similar prices!.


    3. bro eBay is just getting worse lol
      if you are going to buy from any seller just use their websites or other platforms, you won’t have to look over your shoulder or worry about getting mamba in the post lol

  4. I recon 80% CBD flowers sellers or don’t know what they are selling or just lie to customers… Found few sellers that forget that CBN is controlled substance in UK and their buds got 18% CBD but around 1% CBN!!! And all these lab reports? You really believe them? I recon we should all chip in buy a gram of everyone on market send it to test (there is a few guys on Instagram with sage 2 profilers to test the and CBD content 10quid per test!! ) Also other thing I know some CBD sellers are using CBD isolate to top-up CBD content before test? On what world I’m living? Who can I trust? 🙁

  5. Maybe spoke to soon guys, had an email for our swcbd hemp tea advert, prohibited on eBay post removed 🙁

  6. Hemp Elf , uncherb and LoveHemp420 definitely my top 3 sellers!
    So glad lovehemp420 have now got a website like HempElf, eBay was a drag and you could never communicate your email ad through messages :((

    I think eBay are just confused with CBD, plus with many “dodgy” sellers its hard to control it.
    Definitely stick to buying from websites of HempElf and LoveHemp420, easier transactions and communications and you can speak to them directly 😛

    Praise CBD and High&Polite for the increased awareness of legit sellers!!!

    Jah bless

  7. @Jack Just had a email off one the suppliers on Ebay saying they cannot sell CBD flowers any more. Watch the rest of suppliers vanishing. There only a few left on ebay now 🙁

    1. We no longer sell CBD flowers on ebay, but you can get EVERYTHING and 15% off at BEST-CBD-ONLINE.COM
    thanks for the interest and see you soon.

    2. Hi there,

    We are just writing to you in regards to our CBD products.

As of this morning our listings were taken down by eBay as they believe that these sort of products should not be purchased through eBay.

“You listed a product containing cannabidiol (CBD). Due to varying regulations around the world, we’ve made the decision to prohibit all consumable products made from cannabis. While we appreciate that you chose to utilize our site, we must ask that you please not relist in this case”

  8. Yes EBAY is taking down listings quicker than they can appear now. I used these guys twice now for the SUPER LEMON HAZE and the MOONROCKS, REALLY GOOD! They sent me the same message

    We no longer sell CBD flowers on ebay, but you can get EVERYTHING and 15% off at

    Hope this helps 🙂

  9. Sadly a lot of vendors are off eBay now because of “confused regulations”
    Im now sticking to hemp elf & lovehemp420 online store as well as brain box

    Vendors such as professor hemp have completley disappeared, pretty sketchy…

  10. Ordered of ukflowerz did not recieve my order and he stopped contecting me once i had paid i would still well clear

  11. It’s now sept 2019 and all these sellers and produce have been banned from eBay. It’s only a matter of time until awareness reaches critical mass and the law comes down on these websites closing their business and seizing their bank accounts pending legal action against the participants and possibly also their clients so caveat emptor
