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

How easy is it to buy cannabis online in the UK? Very easy.

You’ve probably heard of people buying weed on the mysterious ‘Dark Web’. 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, it’s 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 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).

Look for pictures like this on Instagram

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.

Bud Utopia

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).

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.

Little Biggy

We’ve recently come across a surface web market place with an escrow system, great vendors and even better community.

Little Biggy hosts a number of vendors all selling a variety of mostly cannabis products, including many types of hash, Cali Weed, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) and more.

There seems to be a good number of anonymous businesses operating on the platform, many with reassuring guarantees and public reviews clearly displayed in their virtual shops.

God’s Connect, for example, promise ‘Divine quality Cannabis in all shapes and states’, ‘Biblical levels of Stealth’ and ‘Deity approved customers service.’ 

They also provide a grading system for their many strains of flower, hash and concentrates on sale – of which you’ll find authentic Cali-grown Runtz OG, a cross between Gelato 33 and Zkittles and sold in its original packaging, for a BTC0.0079  (£32.50) a gram.

They also sell Indian charas and hash, Jamaican sess and imported live resin dabs

Another vendor, Next Day Weed, also have their ow separate online shop.

Is Little Biggy trustworthy?

We will be making some orders ourselves to verify some vendors on this clear net market place, however, it looks legit and the rating system seems authentic.

UK Flowerz

These guys have been operating for a while. Heard some bad things about their products some time ago but they seem to have upped their game. Have had a sample and it was good quality.

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 regular weed, CBD flower is legal as it is considered a processed form of legally-grown hemp flower. It is currently being sold openly online and in vape shops around the country.

      1. Hi jack, I’ve placed an order with uk flowerz reading some comments below, in your opinion is it sprayed didn’t realise that was still a thing.

        1. I haven’t had a sample so I can’t really comment. They were getting positive reviews until James commented below saying it’s low quality and then he got scammed. Don’t send too much money and order at your own risk would be my advice. Let us know how it goes!

          1. Thanks jack, haven’t received anything yet either but only place order 2 days ago, will keep you posted!
            Cheers 👍

  1. 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”.

        2. They are a total scammers been there learned hard lesson , to not be drawn in by there bull shit take money deliver nothing and stop answering your questions

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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!

  4. 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

      1. No mate they use Bitcoins and they have new stock in now Jack 🙂

        Dosido aka gelousy

        Gelato 33

        Bubba kush

        P.s I won’t but THC off the net, because I could get loads of different strains from my mates
        plus I know what I get 😉

    1. Did you mean you purchased from ndwuk?

      Tbh I have a good supply for buds but am looking for some strong edibles/gummies.

  5. 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. I am disabled with extremely poor mobility and really needed to buy quality cannabis online and in small affordable amounts (am also a pensioner), after losing a couple of hundred to online scams, I joined Liverpool cannabis club and asked them for help. Nothing doing apparently since the silence was deafening!

      1. Depends what you are after, THC or CBD? The latter readily available on the normal web, try Weed Supermarket for example. Alternatively you’ll need someone on the dark web and crypto currency for THC stuff online due to current laws

  6. How are you all contacting him? I’ve tried the email on the receipt and I’m getting nothing back! Ordered on the 18th, paid on the 19th. Think he’s scamming a few a keeping a few sweet. Good job I only ordered 1 flower lol. Any replies would be appreciated!

        1. I’m not quite two weeks but have had no contact, some people saying there’s turn up around about the two week time. I will leave it 30 days and if nothing then I will post its not turned up.

  7. Rich is right. It’s sprayed. Don’t buy anything from ukflowerz. It’s run by a 15 year old wannabe rudeboy from london who doesn’t give two shits about anyone or anything. Honestly, you are playing with fire ordering off this guy. The product is an absolute shambles. DO NOT ORDER OR USE THIS PRODUCT. It’s worse than soapbar. So so so so so dangerous. Give it a week of smoking this stuff and your throat will be completely fucked, could even cause irreversible damage. It can look normal, smoke relatively normal, but it ISN’T normal, or safe. Yet another reason legalisation NEEDS to happen ASAP. Stay safe everyone, avoid this. The only way to be safe is to grow your own.

        1. I’m really glad to see you removed the link. Thank you for this. Can I ask what information came to light that caused you to change your mind about them? I’m interested to know what happened? Cheers.

  8. Strange to see all references removed from the page. Might be nice for you to own the mistake since you vouched for them.

  9. Hey, I was wondering why you removed any mention of that last website. I heard spice mentioned. I personally ordered a gram last week and it arrived. Just ordered a couple more the other day.

  10. I have been using MedicineManUK for years by far the easiest and most professional store

    Just download tor and use the link medmanukmb2cdmfq.onion

  11. Jack what happened to the two site you linked?
    I bought from the “flowerz” one, it arrived next day, its good stuff, a friend tried to buy from them, but said they are not accepting payment at the moment as the bank stopped the car facility etc, is it the other site you put a link to that was dodgy.?

  12. I said id wait I’d wait 30 days but think it’s safe to say flowerz not turned up – site is dead – if you do a search of the sister site your find a YT video and also a video of the site that came before it – always ends up with dead site, you take your chance but these sites are dead.

    1. Did you use them at all? Tempted to order as it looks pretty legit but not sure.

      Anyone used 420blast UK?

  13. any one tried ukflowerz, got one good 3.5g, second order never arrived, no communication from owner. shame as first batch was good quality

  14. Do not buy weed off the clear net. I know it’s tempting especially if it’s hard for you to get weed but you’re going to get burned. There’s so many scam sites it’s just not worth it, in fact I’d say they’re all scams. Not one looks legitimate and I’ve only ever heard of people getting ripped off. So just don’t risk it!

      1. Hi guys Weed Supermarket is CBD only if you want to order flower, hash or shatter in the UK then add mrnicemarks on Wickr and send him a message he’s completely legit. There are a lot of scams on Wickr but this guy is golden, and if you’re worried about getting burnt just order a very small amount first to test the waters.

  15. Hi, been reading the comments, Im looking at MedicineManUK site, looks pretty genuine. Has anyone had any experience of them? Would really appreciate any advice.


  16. Hey, can someone walk me through the process of buying online? I keep seeing a link medicine man being mentioned? Is it as easy as accessing the site and buying it? How do I get bitcoin? I’ve just been scammed a few times using Instagram accounts, thankfully it was small amounts but still so annoying. I just want a way to get a decent supply for personal use 🙁

  17. Hi
    Just a big thanks to all that recommended medicine man, Ive never ordered online before so wasn’t sure if id get ripped off!
    I Didn’t!! The website looks too amazing to be true – but its not! I ordered 3.5 g of some cali weed and it was the best smoke I have ever got my hands on. Next day delivery and arrived super stealth! I honestly can’t recommend them enough.
    Learn to use PGP to encrypt messages and they will reply to you securely (there’s free software for this and is very simple after a bit of practice – took me 30 mins to learn!)
    Also if you don’t want to mess around getting bit coins they accept amazon top up cards which makes paying super easy.
    The whole experience was so much easier than i thought!

  18. Wow you guys must be really hard up for bud if you have to buy a gram off of some wannabe on the Internet. Move to gods own country Yorkshire we’re swimming in the shit up here ?

    1. You send it to your house just like CBDJack said… I can also vouch for mrnicemarks on Wickr seems to be one of the trusted ones.

  19. Anybody used “420blast uk” they look the most legit to me but not sure. Looking for King Pens


  20. Has anyone ordered from NextDayWeed (NDW)? I’m considering ordering just a 4.5g but I am extremely cautious with ordering these types of things on visible web. If anyone has had a successful order with NDW can they get back to me please and thank you.

    1. Same!! Although its Bitcoin, the fact its publicly hosted is a major risk to any supplying restricted items ie THC Buds so I’ve always held off making a purchase but keen to know if others have had any joy with them??

  21. Hi guys
    Honestly try medmanuk, had two completed orders and I’m a very happy customer.
    If your worried about getting ripped off don’t be, try logging into the site each day and looking on the forums and reviews that are constantly updated all of the time, that should give you some reassurance, the rip off guys couldn’t and wouldn’t keep such an up to date forum constantly!
    Simply go on the dark web and paste medmanukmb2cdmfq.onion into your search bar, read the FAQs and you will not be disappointed.
    Im sure there are other legit sites out there but this is honestly one of them.
    Just trying to help.

  22. Just received my order from Next Day Weed Delivery. Wow, impressive. Took a while to set up my bitcoin account, but once done the process was quick and the product arrived on time. And it is excellent quality! Highly recommend :))

  23. Hi High and Polite, just wanted to let you know how helpful I’ve found your site, and the tips on Medman – great! A really good, quick, quality service??.

    Thanks again!

          1. Nice one, i’ll get an eighth tomorrow and keep you updated and let you know of the seller I use

  24. Is there a dummy’s guide to using sites such as Medman? All this bitcoin and PGP malarky seems way over my head. I am a real technophobe :/

    1. You don’t need to use PGP that’s optional everything’s encrypted with pgp anyway.

      Use localbitcoins to buy BTC

    1. Yeah, I ordered from him on Monday and it arrived Wednesday. Good, quick service and communication on Whatsapp cos you can’t actually pay on the site. No smell at all, discrete package and he sent a pic before posting so I knew it was definitely getting posted.

  25. Purchased from flowerz. Good quick service and excellent quality. I would reccomend and will be ordering again?

  26. Unfortunately, not been very successful so far. £200 down through the advice given about instagram. Scammed royally twice. I am really looking for a reliable THC strong strain and about 1/2oz a week. If there is anyone who can point me in the right direction for a reliable source I’d be so grateful. NDWUK looks alright, has anyone had experience through them? Thanks! Dan ✌?

    1. Sheffbuds420 on Wickr, never been disappointed, always quality tackle. He drops to me but I know his postal service is second to none

  27. Hi

    Guys your wasting your time going on insta or some site you found via google.

    Just install tor browser and head to


    With more then 33 strains of weed + edibles, shatter, vapes, keif rso oil and even canna cream + more.

    MedicineManUK – the only place for medicinal cannabis

    1. I would love to make a purchase from Medicine Man… but the site won’t let me register (because it’s an iPad) and I’ve tried emailing 3 times and no reply.

  28. i regret giving UKflowerz any good reviews i brought 2 oz find out to my cost stuff was low Quality i send another £300 after he promised he has top stuff nothing came he is total scammer people keep away from UKflowerz or you will regret big time he biggest lying boiler man..

    1. This guy scammed me (only for a tenner), then tried emailing me apologising for his shitty service, said he had orders backed up. Said do you have my payment, he said yes. Said well send me what you owe and we’ll go from there. Never heard from him again. Wouldn’t trust him sending anything.

  29. Had a very good experience with Ukflowerz. Took about 10 days to deliver but arrived in vacuum packed package with absolutely no aroma and product was very nice. Seller was approachable and easy.
