If you type in ‘buy weed online UK’ you’ll be presented with a number of online shops claiming to sell cannabis. While many may look and sound convincing, most of these are scams.
What’s most to hate about these sites is that they often target people who are in poor health and are desperate for relief.
I’ve personally heard from people suffering from cancer, chronic pain, debilitating anxiety and much more who have been scammed out of hundreds of pounds.
For some reason, Google takes no action against these sites and continues to list them in their search results. And unfortunately it’s also very hard to find any reviews or warnings about these sites anywhere on the internet.
So, before you go giving them your hard earned money, check to see if they are featured on our list below of scam sites.
The sites we’ve published below are ones that have been confirmed to have ripped people off. Steer clear!

How they scam you…
We’ve noticed that a lot of these scammers use the same techniques to fleece as much money as possible from their victims.
First, you’ll be pushed to buy larger quantities. Many sites, for example, have a minimum order of one ounce. This is because they know they can only dupe each person once, so they try to make each scam as profitable as they can.
The seller will also often request payment in Amazon or iTunes gift cards. These can then be sold on ebay in order to be monetised. Additionally, Bitcoin and bank transfer are common payment methods.
These devious scammers don’t stop there. After your order doesn’t arrive and you let the scammers know, they will often request that you pay a further amount of money to cover so-called postage, customs or insurance costs. This way they can hit you twice.
