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.
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 tells you everything you need to know.
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.
This is a Spanish company that specialises in formulating cannabis-based body care, topicals and natural remedies.
They do not sell cannabis flowers or herbal cannabis, however.
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).
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
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.
