Although it may seem daunting at first, using the dark web is becoming an increasingly popular and convenient method of buying cannabis online.
In fact, The Global Drug Survey 2018 showed that more than a quarter of UK drug users now regularly use the dark web to make their purchases.
Thanks to Bitcoin and Tor Browser, the dark web provides a convenient method of purchasing cannabis from the comfort of your own home. It also provides you with a huge selection of quality strains that your local dealer may not have access to.
Using things like Bitcoin and Tor Browser sound complicated. However, don’t be put off – using the dark web is actually fairly easy.
Step 1: Buy Bitcoin
Paxful is one of the largest, most established bitcoin exchanges in the world. Once on their website, sign up for an account by following their simple instructions.
You’ll need to go through an online verification process. This should only take several minutes but requires some form of formal identification e.g. passport or driver’s license.
Once signed up to an exchange, buying bitcoin should be a clear, straightforward procedure. After the purchase has been completed, you should see your Bitcoin appear in your online wallet.
Coinbase is another good option.
Tip: You’ll want to purchase slightly more Bitcoin than needed in order to compensate for price fluctuations or processing fees. Therefore, spend a couple of quid extra when buying your Bitcoin.
Step 2: Download Tor Browser
Tor works just like a regular browser, such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. However, unlike regular browsers, Tor conceals the user’s location and usage allowing you to browse the internet anonymously.
Tip: It’s always recommended that you use a VPN when using Tor, click here for more information. For small, irregular weed purchases, however, this isn’t really necessary.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed Tor Browser, you’re all set to search for an online weed shop or marketplace.
Step 3: Find an shop/marketplace for cannabis
Popular places to buy cannabis on the dark web include Medicine Man UK and Empire Market. Addresses for both can be found with a bit of googling.
Step 4: Make an order
Choosing your order and checking out is a straight forward procedure on most dark web shops and marketplaces.
You will be told how much to transfer (in Bitcoin and Pounds) and given a wallet address to send the Bitcoin to. Leave this page open as you still need to confirm that you’ve paid.
Step 5: Pay
Log in to your bitcoin exchange. Click on your wallet. Click on ‘Send’.
You then need to enter the the Bitcoin wallet address you were given when you made your order as well as the correct amount of Bitcoin, and send.
Congratulations, you will soon be in possession of some high-grade cannabis! Just sit tight and wait for your new favourite person: the postman.
