1. Buy some Bitcoin and send it to your wallet

Coinbase is a trusted global Bitcoin exchange operating for several years. One of the largest exchanges you’ll find in the world. You will need to undergo online verification of ID although this process is only needed once. Anybody can buy Bitcoin for any reason (investments, presents etc) it will just be a quick online ID check.

Details on how to send Bitcoin from Binance:


Local Bitcoins is an exchange which lets people trade bitcoins with each other using bank transfers, Paypal, Pingit as well as other systems.  The whole process can normally be completed in a few minutes.

Once you have purchased your Bitcoin, the balance will show where you bought it in an online wallet as a number probably something like 0.0157593. (That’s how much Bitcoin you get for £50 at the moment.)

Once you have bought your Bitcoin you should use Electrum or Blockchain to store your coins, ready to send to your new trustworthy and highly rated online weed dealer at Empire Market.

You should never send coins directly from somewhere like Coinbase to a dark net website, this is asking for problems, make sure you always send the Bitcoin to your own wallet, and then to the dark market. Safety first.

Details on how you send funds out of Coinbase can be found here:


2. Download and install the Tor Browser


You’ll only need to do this once.

Tor is just like using Internet Explorer or Firefox except the web addresses end with ‘.onion’ instead of .com. It can take a few minutes for it to create a connection when you first start it, this is quite normal. Just download it and you’re away. Get that working then you’re well on the way to solving this problem.

If you are brave enough to attempt this on Android I would recommend this browser.  On the iPhone this one seems to work ok.

Go create your account on Empire Market using the Tor Browser

No need to use your email address, just use this link to create an account so you can then log in to Empire Market and place your orders. Empire is currently one of the easiest place to find uk cannabis dealers online, and is increasing its userbase day by day. It can be very slow, so if you are having problems, be patient and try again in 10 minutes. There are are also these alternative links which may work:

Mirror 1
Mirror 2

Send your Bitcoin from your wallet to the Empire Wallet

Once you have logged in to Empire, look for the ‘BTC’ letters at the top right next to your profile name.

Just to the right of that you can click on the number 0 and you will be taken to your Bitcoin wallet page.

You will need to click on ‘Generate Bitcoin Deposit Address’ and then a long address will be generated which you can send your funds to from your personal wallet. They may take 15 or 20 minutes to show up there once sent. Don’t panic.

5. Buy your weed

The fun part. Ordering your weed.

I can make one recommendation here. ShineyBudsUK. He only sells decent weed and offers outstanding customer service, with weed normally arriving next day if ordered in the morning in the UK during the week. Yes really.

You can find easily find him on Empire with the Tor browser.  Now you are logged in scroll down slightly so you can see the search box to the left and then search for ShineyBudsUK as shown below:

Once the search listings appear, as shown below you can then click on his name to go to his profile:

From here you will see a button to the right hand side which says ‘view store’.

Click on this to then see all of Shiney’s listings:

Now simply choose your product. Just click on whichever you fancy and the product page will appear, as you can see below.

Once you have pressed the buy button you will be taken to the next page where you enter your delivery details.

Make sure that you check the small box (also circled in red) to encrypt your address.

Shiney always delivers. Order with confidence.

There are obviously many other options. Always read their reviews first.  You will be able to find hash, skunk, edibles, oils etc. ‘radarbreeder’ is also on Empire and is very reliable indeed.

I normally stick with UK vendors to avoid packages going through customs, but plenty of people get deliveries from Spain and Germany without problem. You can also filter vendors geographically. This market only recently became popular so don’t yet expect there to be huge amounts of vendor ratings just yet.

6. Finalise

Once you have finished doing your little dance when the weed arrives, remember the vendor – he hasn’t been paid yet so you MUST log back in to Empire, go to your orders page and click the large finalise button to complete the order and release funds to the vendor. That way they will not end up getting very frustrated with you. 🙂

If you want to be extremely safe in your purchase you may want to consider using a VPN (a virtual web connection to hide your location further) when using Tor. For small amounts though, I think this may be overkill.

Important note: If you’re looking to find cannabis oil for medical purposes, first speak to these guys, who really know their stuff.

Technical problems? Get in touch and ask me for help, I will provide free assistance.

An alternative:

If this is all too much and you’re looking for medical relief you may want to consider getting hold of some legal CBD buds. They are being sold openly in the UK now and contain very low levels of THC but do contain other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBD which can reduce pain, inflammation and anxiety as well as having other positive effects. These buds provide the stress and pain relief of cannabis without the stoned brain effects that can occur with THC. Hempelf also sell CBD oils.

This page was last updated on the 24th May 2019.


The use of CBD oil has been a recent major health trend for both humans and pets. But is this trend just a matter of clever marketing? Or is there any research to back up the use of this product?

It turns out that CBD oil, also known as cannabidiol, has been well researched to provide a variety of health benefits thanks to the role the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) plays in many vital life processes. This system includes receptors, transmitters, and special enzymes helps to regulate mood, metabolism, sleep, pain, inflammation, and skin health.

While veterinary research into CBD oil for dogs is still in the early phases, much scientific research has been done on tissues, laboratory animals, and even humans. In addition, we know that canines share an ECS that functions similarly to that of humans. In additions, those veterinarians that have used CBD in their clinical practices have seen real results in many of their furry patients.

Here are a five of the most researched potential benefits of CBD oil:

1. Pain and Inflammation

One of the most researched aspects of cannabidiol is its ability to reduce both pain and inflammation. This is particularly important for owners of senior dogs who often suffer from joint pain from natural aging processes and/or degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis.

In fact, one study showed that just 2mg per kg of CBD oil administered twice daily significantly improved mobility of dogs who suffered from osteoarthritis. Another study showed that the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are so powerful that they may even slow the progression of this debilitating disease.

In addition, the use of CBD may allow for less use of other pain medications since this natural compound seems to enhance their effect. This is great news for pet owners, many of whom are becoming aware of the potential dangers of long term use of Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are the most common treatment for chronic joint pain and OA in canines.

2. Anxiety

The ECS also plays a role in regulating mood, and this is particularly true when it comes to anxiety. Although cannabis based medicine has long been understood to help some patients with PTSD, for example, the psychoactive or “high” that medical marijuana induces keeps many patients from being able to enjoy the anxiety reducing effect of this plant family. Since THC is potentially toxic to dogs in large doses, this is especially true for them.

This has made CBD, a non-psychoactive compound found in the low THC strain of cannabis known as hemp, a subject of much research as to its now well-known anti-anxiety properties. Although much of the research has been done on humans with anxiety disorders such as social anxiety, PTSD, and OCD, the compound seems to have a calming effect on dogs as well.

Of course, we don’t use the same terms to talk about anxiety in our furry friends. However, professional dog trainers and animal behaviorists agree that many common dog issues have anxiety and fear as their root, including: many forms of dog aggression, phobias such as fear of cars and thunderstorms, and separation anxiety.

Some dog trainers have found that using CBD oil in combination with positive reinforcement based training programs can drastically improve such anxiety related dog behaviors.

3. Digestion

One of the most interesting findings of cannabis based research over the last few decades is that the gut is packed full of endocannabinoid receptors. In fact, the ECS plays a major role in maintaining homeostasis, or balance, in the digestive system.

It does this in several ways. First, the ECS regulates gut motility, in other words, the movement from the beginning to end of the digestive tract. Second, it appears to maintain the intestinal barrier, critical for keeping the gut lining in good health. Finally, it seems to play a vital role in the brain-gut axis, a pathway that is implicated in immune function and metabolism.

It should be no surprise then to find out that CBD is under current study as a potential therapy for a variety of digestive disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Although not yet studied specifically in dogs, many holistic veterinarians have found it to be effective with a variety of digestive related issues in dogs including excessive gas, diarrhea, constipation, appetite problems, and sensitive stomachs.

4. Healthy Skin

Dry and itchy skin in dogs is a common problem with many potential causes including food sensitivities, autoimmune diseases, and allergic reactions to chemicals, flea or tick bites, and even pollen. It is important that if your dog is experiencing persistent patches of dry, flaky, or inflamed areas of skin to visit your veterinarian to rule out more serious conditions that may need immediate treatment.

Because skin tissue is actually regulated by the Endocannabinoid System, CBD oil has been well researched as a potential therapy for several skin conditions. It works by activating the channels that regulate the growth and death of skin cells as well as the lipid production that keeps skin moist and healthy.

This is great news since skin problems can be difficult to diagnose and treat without potentially harmful long-term use of corticosteroids and immune suppressing pharmaceuticals. As a result, your vet may recommend CBD oil which can be safely given orally or applied topically to help with dry and itchy skin.

5. Cancer

CBD is not a cure for cancer, despite some internet hype to the contrary. However, there is quite a bit of research to support the use of cannabidiol as part of a cancer treatment program in several types of cancer, including: leukemia, lung cancer, breast cancer, glioma, pancreatic cancer, and colon cancer.

Cannabidiol seems to work in several ways to enhance some cancer treatment protocols. First, CBD oil has been shown to reduce tumor size by activating specific pathways that inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Second, CBD has been shown in some studies to improve the action of chemotherapy agents by sensitizing cells to this common form of cancer treatment. Finally, CBD also appears to help with several of the more problematic side effects of cancer therapy, including reduced appetite, nausea, and pain.

Of course, it is imperative that if your canine companion is undergoing cancer treatment to consult with your veterinarian about the possible use of CBD as part of a targeted cancer treatment program. This is particularly important since CBD is known to interact with some pharmaceutical drugs.



The recent legalisation of cannabis has brought much complete ignorance to the forefront of society, as well as a load of spin. With this in mind, I thought it a good time to write a simple cannabis guide for people who need education. A lot has been going on in the world of weed. We can’t ignore it any longer it is part of life on earth.

So, I hear you say:

Smoking cannabis is as bad as smoking cigarettes everyone knows that – it gives you lung cancer

Actually not. This is completely not the case, quite the opposite and don’t worry even celebrity doctors get this wrong too. The largest ever study done in the US on this very subject found that people who smoked only marijuana had less chance of getting lung cancer than those who did not smoke at all!

So – smoking cannabis does not cause cancer – it can actually prevent it. A more recent study demonstrated a lower risk of bladder cancer for those who smoke cannabis.

Having legal cannabis will encourage use and make it more available to children

No it will not encourage use. You cannot stop children and kids from wanting to experiment. In an ideal world you could but we do not live there.  We have to deal with reality. Teens in particular will do what they like. So what do you do? Let the criminals handle it, so your child will only be able to buy the very strongest and most tainted cannabis possible (along with the chance of some coke and pills like in the UK?)  This is a proven gateway effect, a direct result of prohibition. Before you say it, cannabis is not a gateway drug.

Or do we let them go to a dispensary when they are old enough and select from various options (many of them not capable of frying the brain) sold by nice people who know their plants –  which option would you want for your child?

The black market won’t die out overnight after legalisation of course – but this is the only possible direction to start reducing it.  Just like with alcohol, there will be moonshine for some time.  Remember, cannabis wasn’t always illegal.  Prohibition of cannabis is the failed experiment.

According to the updated Liberal Cannabis policies the new legal Cannabis markets, for example in Canada, any licensed Cannabis producers have to follow strict rules and procedures.

It encourages crime

Legal medical cannabis reduces crime according to this study.  Not only that medical cannabis availability has also been linked directly to a reduction in suicides.  Still think cannabis is bad? You may have been brainwashed.

It makes people stupid

Actually it would appear that cannabis encourages the growth of new brain cells.

The whole thing about people being called ‘dopes’  is misguided. Whilst that person may appear to be dopey to you, they are taking much more information about their surroundings than somebody who is not high.  They have a higher sampling rate of life is all that is going on. Get over it.

A recent study has shown that cannabis users actually have better cognitive skills than people who don’t use it.

Alcohol is much better for you and safer

Alcohol is technically a poison for your body ( more harmful than heroin), whilst cannabis acts as a medicine – particularly if you consume it raw. The facts of the matter are that alcohol can give you cancer and cannabis can prevent or even cure many types of cancer. Alcohol also causes other diseases.

It will increase car accidents

Absolute rubbish.  The reality of the situation is that states that have legalised medical cannabis have seen a drop in in traffic deaths.

As well as that, a study by the Deutsches Ärzteblatt International, the German Medical Association’s official international science journal found that:

‘Patients who take cannabinoids at a constant dosage over an extensive period of time often develop tolerance to the impairment of psychomotor performance so that they can drive vehicles safely.’

All this ‘Medical Marijuana’ stuff is just an excuse right?

Yes many hold this opinion. Idiots all. Sure some people want to get in on it that aren’t ill but can you really blame them? It’s the most powerful medicine on the planet. Why shouldn’t people be allowed to use it in the way that they wish?

If you’re in any doubt as to the efficacy of cannabis medically perhaps you should ask Charlotte Figi’s parents about this. Or Rick Simpson. Or Kirsten Peskuski. Or Emmanuel Guzman. Also funny how the US government decided to patent something with no medical value wouldn’t you say? And now big money is involved too. The cat is out the bag. Official trials have begun on brain cancer patients. Cannabis is an amazing medicine.

It kills thousands every year

This is utter garbage. Pharmaceuticals kill thousands every year. Hundreds of thousands of Americans actually. Cannabis has never killed anybody in history. See if you can find a documented death due to cannabis consumption. You won’t because there aren’t any.  Even the DEA say that cannabis is safer than 10 potatoes. Yes really.

The UK have unsuccessfully tried to manufacture a couple of cases of cannabis poisoning now legalization is looming but few believe the reefer madness crap any more.

Only the other day a small 20 person study was taken completely out of context.

The mainstream media cannot be trusted to tell you the truth about cannabis.

Spannabis 2019 Report

by dope smoker on March 24, 2019

Arriving at Spannabis for the first time is a bit like entering another world. Well, you are entering another world, for a few days at least. One absolutely full to the brim of stoners, and it is wonderful.

Even the hotel we stayed at near the event itself was packed to the brim of cannabis people from seedbanks to nutrient companies to grow shops, it seemed like every brand from the world of cannabis was there. Many thanks to Mark from Barney’s Farm for sorting out the tickets. Top man.

I even managed to grab a quick chat with the Cheese man himself, Big Buddha (below).

A very interesting conversation, during which he noted that -whilst everybody was going a bit crazy over Kushes at the moment, this is something which is prone to change, with another strain in vogue sooner or later. He believes (-and I have to agree) that the Cheese reaches cannabinoid receptors that perhaps some others don’t, making it a little bit special.

As well as all the well-known brands, there were some less familiar ones. Only in Spannabis will you find a group of attractive ladies dressed as nuns promoting cannabis lube.

There were some excellent marketing tactics at work here, the ladies in nun suits draw people in, once you are in range they offer you a sample, then seconds later your lips are vibrating like goodness knows what as you giddily hand over your debit card. That was roughly what happened I think. That was Oh Hail Mary.

There were so many stands, so many people, so many seeds, so many bongs. We spent a couple of days going in and out of the venue and think we saw pretty much everything. Everybody we spoke to was friendly, relaxed and happy.  We saw no trouble whatsoever.

A visit to an extremely well-equipped cannabis club in town meant that we were OK for weed for the few days there, although there were some lovely people at the venue giving out actual buds here and there. Thanks for that.

Royal Queen Seeds definitely get the award for having the most ostentatious stand. A huge thing, which advertised their daily website visitors.

There was an amazing amount of freebies and such like being given out all over, and there were even a couple of dutch maidens wondering around with baskets of free rizlas.

We especially enjoyed visiting the Super Sativa Seed Club area, an old seedbank that has recently been brought back to life, it was great fun chatting with the guys there who had an awesome stand and some utterly gorgeous samples.

They have been preserving some very special genetics for over 20 years. Thanks to Bram from Dutch Passion for letting us know about them.

It was fantastic to meet the beautiful Mariana from Sweet Seeds in real life and also good talking with relative neighbours Pete from Original Sensible and Huan from Kannabia.

If only every single day could be like Spannabis.

Apparently, several CBD companies didn’t attend because of warning letters sent regarding the recent Spanish ban on CBD products. This is quite ridiculous considering that people were just openly smoking weed through the venue and surrounding area.

Check out this well put together video below from Barney’s Farm which nicely captures the essence of the event. Looking forward to next year already!
