How Easy Is It To Buy Cannabis Online In The UK?

Very easy.

You’ve probably heard of people buying weed on the mysterious ‘Darknet’. You might be aware that it can be purchased via Instagram, even. But did you know you can buy weed on the regular internet, from regular online shops?

And I’m not talking about hemp or CBD oil either. I’m talking THC-rich cannabis in the form of flower, oil, paste and more.

But wait. Isn’t cannabis illegal still in the UK?

Cannabis is still very much illegal. While police forces up and down the country are taking a softer approach to cannabis crimes, this is largely down to lack of resources and funding rather than a relaxation in the law.

Medical cannabis has been legal since November 2018. However, it’s still rarely prescribed, almost impossible to get hold of without flying to Holland, and costs a tonne.

Where To Buy THC-Rich Cannabis In The UK

However, THC-rich cannabis is also widely available in the UK. And if you don’t have (or want to have) local connections, the internet is your best bet.

Here’re your options:

1. The ‘’Darknet’

The ‘Darknet’ (or ‘Dark Web’/‘Deep Web’) is a term that refers to a collection of websites that cannot be found by using traditional search engines or visited by using traditional browsers, like Windows, Chrome or Firefox.

To access this encrypted network, you have to download an encryption tool known as Tor Browser. Tor protects your privacy online and allows you to browse the ‘dark web’ with anonymity.

You’ll also need to buy Bitcoin, which is a cryptocurrency that you’ll use to make your purchases.

While this sounds very confusing, the truth is that buying weed using the Darknet is now a reasonably simple process that anyone can master in a few hours.

And when they do, it’s like walking into a virtual cannabis dispensary with countless professional vendors waiting to fulfil your needs with a vast choice of products.

This in-depth guide from tells you everything you need to know.

2. Instagram

Yep, along with pictures of pugs and shimmering sunsets on everyone’s favourite photo-sharing app, weed dealers lurk.

How? Just search for #caliweed. Find an account with ‘Nothing For Sale’  or ‘DM for Wickr’ in the bio – DM means direct message and Wickr is a private messaging app that most Insta dealers use. Send a message and wait for instructions.

You’ll usually be asked to pay by bank transfer before your order is sent in the Royal Mail postal service.

Of course, there are many scammers out there waiting to take your money. If you can, try to find profiles with a good number of followers, trustworthy comments, and with recommendations.

Once you learn the intricacies of buying weed on Instagram, you’ll soon realise what an active cannabis community there is, present on the platform (and in real life).

3. Regular websites/online shops

Now this is where it gets interesting. Over the last few months I have become aware of a couple of regular websites that sell illegal, THC-rich cannabis.

That’s right. You can just go and order your weed like you would on any other online shop.

Now these shops operate just any legal e-commerce businesses. with websites, customer service, and even some legal products alongside their illicit stock.

First up we have Disguising their products as garden flowers, this website may look pretty basic and quite frankly untrustworthy, but they mean what they say and we can confirm that they do indeed ship THC-rich cannabis flowers.

Strawberry from

We have made two orders including all three strains they have available – the Amnesia and Hindu Kush are good mid-grade outdoor flowers, while the Cali-grown Strawberry is much nicer and more potent. We also tried a sample of squidgy black hash, which was of great quality.

UKFlowerz is a sister site of, which has been selling a selection of CBD flower for a while. The Strawberry and Amnesia THC-rich products are also listed on this website.

Can they be trusted?

Who knows. We have made two orders with no problem along with some dialogue with the person who runs the site.

With a history as a vendor on the Darknet, they seem to be undeterred by the illegality of their operations. They also say they are in it for the long run. But then again, they would.

This is a Spanish company that specialises in formulating cannabis-based body care, topicals and natural remedies.

Their about page says: “We are one of Catalonia’s first stores for Alternative Plant Medicine, here to provide you with easy and affordable access to the healing powers of the Cannabis plant…”

They go on to mention the CBD preparations they sell but not the THC-containing product range, which includes the popular Blue Dream Nutrogenesis Oil  (110mg THC and 10mg CBD per 30ml bottle) and the more potent Critical Mass Cannabis Paste (with 409mg THC and 93mg CBD per gram).

22% THC Blue Dream Nutrogenesis Oil

Their White Widow Nutrogenesis Oil (with 125mg THC, 5mg CBD and 5mg CBN) is described as inducing “a cognitive driven ‘high’ with an incredibly pleasant, relaxing undertone” that is “especially good for Fibromyalgia, depression, stress, pain, and PTSD”.

They also advice customers to “Start slowly with 2-3 drops.  Observe how it makes you feel, and then increase or decrease your dosage according to your own needs.”

Can they be trusted?

While we haven’t ordered from them ourselves, we have read numerous reports about the company in a popular CBD discussion group on Facebook.

Bud Utopia seem to be a compassionate company that is doing its best to make an effective medicine available to people without having to learn about the Darknet or source locally.

In our eyes, they are doing a tremendous job and should be supported.

Is it safe to buy weed online in the UK?

Until it’s legal, buying weed off the internet does carry some risk. However, it’s small.

Orders are sent discreetly in smell-proof packaging. Even if they weren’t, Post Offices do not employ sniffer dogs and workers are advised to deliver post even if they smell or suspect it contains cannabis.

Not only that, our country’s overworked and under-funded police force has better things to do than operate sting operations as you collect the post in your undies. After all, anyone can send a package stuffed with drugs to anyone else.

So, in this technical age, it would appear that cannabis is more widely available in the UK than ever before. And that’s despite the recent so-called legalisation of the medical use of cannabis.

CBD Flower

CBD is the non-psychotropic cannabinoid cousin of THC. While it won’t get you high, it does offer anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and ant-psychotic properties.

And the CBD revolution is in full steam in the UK, with one of the newest and most popular products on the market being CBD flower.

While it may look like regluar weed, CBD flower is legal as it is considered a processed form of legally-grown hemp flower. It is currenryl being sold openly online and in vape shops around the country,

It’s 2019 and cannabis is stepping out of the shadows and into the limelight. There’s no stopping it now.

  1. I’ve been looking for a decent and cheap online supplier as my regular sellers aren’t always the best and always charge over the top for larger quantities so this might just be the ticket. Can I ask, what was the high like and is it on par with say the Gelatto and Stardawg etc in the UK market? Thanks

      1. hi, I ordered the strawberry from Flowerz, 3rd day waiting delivery and since I paid they haven’t answered me regards tracking number. Do you know their delivery time.

      1. Hi there , iv just bought 1 lemon , wondering if you’ve had any of them before and if so what’s the quality like ? Thanks

        1. I tried a small sample of the lemon. It was alright for mid-grade outdoor but doesn’t compare to the high-grade most of us are used to. The Strawberry was the closest in quality.

  2. Very well written & researched CBDJack, enjoying your site very much. I tried a lemon flower from ukflowerz, it’s the real deal, not a scam, & thought it was very pleasant, not brilliant but good. Very fast, discreet delivery. I imagine the floodgates are opened now & even if the current sites disappear, another will pop up. Viva La Revolucion!!

    1. Nice to see another ‘Londoner’ in Brum, i’m from Bracknell myself, moved up here about 10 years ago to get away from all the shite life threw at me while living there. Glad to hear it’s good and not a scam though, even if it’s just better quality that say Thai stick or similar weeds then that’s ok with me as the price is on par for those types of weeds so if any better then it’s definitely worth looking in to and buying!

  3. Hi Jack
    Have you heard of
    Curious but wanted to know what you thought first before placing any orders.
    Please check them out let me know what you think?

      1. I wouldn’t risk it. I mean i’d be wary of most people selling weed online especially the clear net. Even more if they appear to have endless amounts of virtually every strain, weedcastmed have 124 strains? I find that hard to believe. Also they have a money back guarantee and accept returns…yeah right!

        1. I agree! My instincts were telling me NO!!! Lol
          Thanks mate! The smallest amount you can buy is 1oz.
          They do respond to questions on what’sapp.

          1. Yeah I noticed 1oz was the smallest amount, there’s also a few other sites that have a similar setup and what looks like the same hundreds of strains as weedcastmed. So seeing those makes me extremely sceptical.

            The only non-dark net site I’ve come across that could be genuine is nextdayweeduk and they only accept bitcoins. But I’ve never used them so I can’t say for sure if they’re 100% genuine.

            I personally wouldn’t buy more than 3.5g from anyone online. Even if they prove reliable, you’re still dealing with a faceless entity and can never be sure of what’s going to happen…markets getting shut down, selective scamming, exit scams, the dealer getting busted lol. So yeah stick to small amounts in case of the worst.

          1. I looked a little further and they’re always creating new sites, the same M.O. every time with the hundreds of strains (1oz minimum) and presenting themselves as some big marijuana dispensary that accepts returns…which is just ridiculous, no one selling weed would have a return address.

            A few people have been scammed and when they asked where their package was they had the audacity to try scam them again saying they had to pay a £150 insurance charge which would be “refunded”.

  4. Buy it online or GYO, with less and less resources on the side of the fuzz it makes sense to pile on the pressure and do like the song says,

    “Grow, grow, grow yer own gently in a tent,
    Merrily, merrily merrily, merrily,
    You know it makes more sense”

    or something like that 🙂

      1. Hmmm i ordered last thurs evening … not here yet. Ive emailed them too, no reply … fingers crossed. It was only a 10 anyway

  5. Big respect for this. Partner relies on it for medical purposes and relying on street urchins isn’t always possible. This could be game changing

  6. I noticed weedsupermarket quite a while back Jack and they were out of stock then, couple that with them not being active on social media since April 2018 and I’d say the sites been abandoned and looks like a dead end.

  7. I placed an order a few days ago, nothing received so far and no reply to email requests for info.
    Doubt if i will see the money again or the product,

          1. Not high-grade though…do you think they may be from auto flowering seeds?
            Would you say good enough to produce RSO?

  8. Just got a message off ukflowerz. Their card provider terminated their account, all card orders have now been refunded. You can contact them to reorder. Those who paid via bank transfer are fine and should be getting their product soon.

  9. Hi, I just ordered from flowerzuk, paid by bank transfer for 1 strawberry flower as a tester. Is it first class post it comes in, as I have heard nothing from the vendor.


  10. Hey.
    Love this article.
    I’ve also ordered from, hopefully arriving soon.
    Has you had any experience ordering from Instagram?
    I’ve found loads of pages and messaged a few but had no reply.

  11. I ordered the strawberry well over a week ago and I’m still waiting…starting to get a bit antsy now. It’s not looking good for me.

      1. I paid via bank transfer, placed my order 9 days ago. I can’t message him on whatsapp as my phones broken but I did shoot him an email the other day. Still waiting to hear back.

        1. I think it’s time the author of this article removed it. It is going to cause a lot of poor people to lose a lot of money. Nothing written here is reliable or solid, the author even states in the comments section himself that he has never even bought from Instagram before, yet he is advising others publicly online to do so. But don’t worry he has heard it’s “Pretty safe and reliable”.

          He mentions nothing of the numerous cannabis clubs that are popping up nationwide and allow users with a membership to locally connect with likeminded people and in this way find what they need safely and securely. These clubs are without a doubt the best way of accessing cannabis online either medicinally or recreationally for a user with no reliable and trustworthy sources.

          1. Thanks for your comment. You’re right, this article is far from definite and the techniques described carry risk. However, my intention with the article was to relay all I know about buying cannabis online in the hope it may help people who need access to it. As you state, I am not very experienced in all the methods but I would say I still have some knowledge and advice to impart.

            And thanks for pointing out about the local cannabis clubs that are becoming more common. They are doing a great thing and I will be sure to do a separate article discussing these clubs and what they do.

      2. It arrived today thankfully. I knew he had some problems with his payments but still I was just about starting to worry.

  12. I think I’m going to give UKflowerz a go as am struggling locally so will just order a small amount and hope it arrives. I’m still quite clueless about different types, which would you recommend to help with mood? I am in withdrawal hell from anti depressants and need help with depression and anxiety, any thoughts on which would be best from the ones you tried?

    1. I haven’t tried any yet but I imagine the strawberry and hindu might be best for that, I wouldn’t think Lemon or Amnesia strains would be very good for anxiety. But if you or anyone else haven’t smoked before or just in a while even i’d take it easy to start with, just do a little bit and maybe mix it with some cbd flower.
