Be careful when buying weed online. Read this guide to help you search for weed and avoid being scammed.
In Australia, the sale and purchase of cannabis for recreational purposes is strictly prohibited, and there are no legal ways to buy weed online.
While some states and territories have legalized the use of medicinal cannabis, it is not yet legal for online sale.
In ACT, individuals are permitted to grow a limited number of cannabis plants for personal use, but it is unclear whether it is legal to purchase cannabis seeds.
Despite the legal restrictions, there are still websites that sell cannabis online, but it is important to be cautious and avoid scams.
Let’s review the most popular online weed sites in Australia.
BUY WEED AUSTRALIA – Legit or Scam?
BuyWeedAustralia (also known as BuyWeedAU) comes up as my first result when searching “Australia Cannabis online”.
This site looks super slick, with all the cool clear photos of weed, nice descriptions, and plenty of indepth information about how reliable they are, and the purchase and delivery process that they follow. They also claim to have a real instant chat messaging function as customer support.
It looks so real and legit!
But don’t let it fool you! This site is a scam!
How do I know it is a SCAM?
First up, when I used the chat message, they were obviously trying to scam me for as much money as they could as a one off lump sum. I asked a few questions on the weed that they were selling, and yes they could name the price but everything else was ambiguous and evasive.
When I pressed further, asking about delivery times, they quickly steered me towards their express service. For an extra $50, they advised that they could deliver within 4 hours. Are they the UberEats of Weed online?
Straight away, it smells like a scam, it feels like a scam.
Other reviews that can be found online, can be summarised as follows:
The phones numbers are serviced by one Indian guy
Their tactic is to provide you with several different phone numbers – possibly to give the impression that the business is large and can be trusted. Guess what, the same guy answers each phone line.
Below are their phone numbers:
Direct Deposit, PayPal or Bitcoin (BTC)
They may ask for a direct deposit to the BSB 062-215 and Account 10251853.
Don’t transfer any money, until you receive the weed. But guess what, you will never receive it.
If you pay via PayPal or any other e-wallet service, they often will ask you to pay via a friend or family PayPal account. This is to enable them to avoid the auto-refund service that some of the e-wallets provide.
You see, if you purchase via a family or friend, they can argue that it wasn’t from you, there is no agreement with you, and that it wasn’t your family or friend that made the purchase for weed.
Banned from the Site after depositing
If you do proceed with depositing (I hope you don’t!) they will proceed to block all communication with you after receipt of monies.
You will not be able to contact them via mobile, land line or instant chat messaging. There is no way you will be able to communicate with them in order to get your money back.
If they do respond to you, they will advise that your weed is in the mail, or it has been confiscated by the police.
There are several excuses that they will provide to justify the unfulfilled purchase.
Conclusion: BuyWeedAU.com is a Scam
Update: The site BuyWeedAU.com has been closed, with a new site established under the guise of BuyWeedAu.com.au
Aussie 420 – Legit or Scam?
On my Google search, Aussie 420 (also known as 420 Aussie) – comes up as second on my search list.
This site looks very pro along side of Buy Weed Australia – an extremely well designed site, that has everything that instills confidence, trust, legitimacy.
Often you can immediately tell that a site is dodgy with poor grammar, and spelling errors. This site has none of that. In fact the content is comprehensive, well explained, and includes self reviews which are convincing.
The site even provides an Australian address and Australian mobile number.
Address: 33/399 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
Mb: 0476 857 631
Looking beyond the the website itself, you will find that this is another scam just like Buy Weed Australia. Many buyers have transferred money to them – usually in the hundreds of dollars – and nothing is received in return.
How does it work?
They convince you that it is discrete and they guarantee delivery. Accordingly, payments are made with Bitcoin, e-wallets such as PayPal or direct transfers where there is no recourse.
This allows them to explain that by using these payment methods, they can remain discrete from their side and from your side. I.e. it’s a Win-Win situation.
Upon transferring monies, they will send to you a fake confirmation and (if they want to be kind) a fake tracking number.
And boom, that’s it. They gotcha. You can’t do anything to get your money back (or to get your weed). You can’t track them down because nothing is real.
Conclusion: Aussie-420.com is a scam
BUDOASIS – Legit or Scam?
A relatively new comer to the online weed market for Australians. This site comes up third on my list of searches.
This site looks old school. The design is appalling, the slick and professional feel just isn’t there, but perhaps this is because they tout themselves to the selling cannabis products for medicinal purposes only.
Looking further down towards the bottom of the page, this company purports to be based in Denver, Colorado.
Why is this site a SCAM?
First, let’s examine their grammar and spelling in the screen shot. For example, refer to the word “meanly”, which is obviously meant to be “mainly”. Basic school boy error.
Then, if you follow through and read the entire paragraph, it will come across as a load of baloney. If they truly are a medicinal producing cannabis company, I would assume their product would not be referred to as “medicinal weed”. Maybe I’m behind the times, but is this the scientific term of cannabis? (Oh my gosh, I’m even laughing as I write this).
And here’s another example of a spelling error (and even possibly in the wrong context).
“Every nocks and crannies”
Ok, for some Aussies not familiar with old school slang, it’s meant to read – “nook and cranny” NOT “nocks and crannies”. Usually this phrase is in the context of looking for something, or trying to find something that has been lost by looking everywhere. Yes, it can possibly used in the context of delivering goods, but it’s quite unusual.
I don’t think I need to go any further.
Conclusion: BudOasis.net is a Scam
Update: If you are reading this review, and you see that their site is not as I have described it. Beaware, that they may have fixed up and polished their site. A polished turd is still a turd. Stay away from this site.
ENTIRECANNABIS – Legit or Scam?
Gosh, this site, EntireCannabis looks and feels oddly the same as BUDOASIS.
The font is the same and the layout is the same.
But the content is slightly different.
Let’s take a look at their Home page first paragraph.
We can’t find the same spelling mistakes as BudOasis, but the grammar is all over the shop.
And in fact, if you perform a search of reviews of EntireCannabis (not just limited to Australia), you will see that they are targeting various countries around the world to scam people.
Conclusion: EntireCannabis.cc is a Scam
Update: there is also another site: au.entirecannabis.cc with is also a scam.
MelbourneStoners – Legit or Scam?
Melbourne Stoners is the new kid on the block. It’s website looks the real deal, by containing “great deals”, “buyer discounts”, “coupons”, customer reviews, and even a statement to warn you of buying from fake websites!
But this too is also a fake site.
Let’s examine the below screen shot of their site statement:
If you look at the wording in the above screenshot, under the banner of “Buy Weed with Bitcoins”, they’ve written a bunch of words which are tags. Tags are key words entered on a website page to support SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It has no meaning as a reader, but it allows Google (or any other search engine) to find these words and to rank this site within your internet searches. Some SEO guru’s say that by doing this, the site will rank higher on a Google search. And in doing so, obtain more buyers to scam.
You can see that the above paragraph (which is found on their site) is doing the SEO key word tagging method – a list of words that the web site owner believes people who want to buy cannabis online are searching for.
Guess what – I’m gonna start tagging like crazy and see if works for me too!
buy weed online Australia, buy weed online sydney, buy weed online melbourne, buy weed online brisbane, buy weed online perth, buy weed online adelaide, buy weed online canberra, buy weed online hobart, buy weed with bitcoin australia, buy hash legally online NSW, can i buy weed online, online cannabis store, order real weed online Australia, buy hash online Australia, where to buy weed online Australia, buy cannabis oil
The owners are most definitely American, or have experience in American SEO – just by the fact that the word “dispensary” is used. This word is not commonly used in Australia, and in theory would not be as useful for Australian SEO methods. I.e. they should be using key tag words such as “Chemist” or “Pharmacy” instead.
But enough of explaining how these scammy websites optimise their webpages.
Conclusion: MelbourneStoners.com is a Scam
MrCannabisAustralia – Legit or Scam?
By a country mile this site looks the most legit of all weed sites. It is flashy, easy to use, has awesome clear display images of different strains of weed, and each product concisely described like a real estate agent selling a shitty house as a “renovators delight”.
MrCannabisAustralia even includes selling vapes! Which makes you think, this is possibly the Amazon of Weed sellers. It has everything you can smoke, eat, use for ingredients and make clothes with for sale.
I really cannot find any fault with the language, or how the site is built and optimised. In fact, it is very well built, very fast to upload on your desktop or mobile phone, which is what Google regards highly. It even has on the right hand side of the website, fake social media links to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
This site is professional and represents the epitome of an Australian Online Weed selling site. I wish my site looked like this.
Unfortunately, this site is a scam. The only way that I know this is a scam, is by searching for reviews. There is a plethora of comments on other sites, saying that they have been scammed, losing large amounts of money which they are unable to get back.
Conclusion: MrCannabisAustralia.com is a scam
Cannabisshop-au – Legit or Scam?
If you are searching for a wide range of weed, that appears to be medically and professionally supported and supplied, then you could be easily fooled with buying from Cannabisshop-au.
This site quality images of weed, with descriptions mostly using the word “marijuana”.
What gives this site away, is that it uses phrases such as “dispensary” and “Mail Online Marijuana”. These phrases are very much common in North America, not so much in Australia.
What makes CannabisShop-AU relatively unique, is that it accepts Crytocurrency as a payment option.
Most other scam sites, have yet to promote cryptocurrency as it’s preferred payment method.
The fact that North American language is widely used, and that the only payment method is cryptocurrency, means that this site is also a scam.
Conclusion: CannabisShop-AU.com is a scam
AussieHoochDelivery – Legit or Scam?
The owner of the site AussieHoochDelivery has cleverly built this site to target Canberra first and foremost, knowing that this territory has the most liberal laws for cannabis.
In doing so, it then expands it’s market to the rest of Australia.
The language is carefully worded to feel Australian.
The laws of Canberra are explained, quite accurately with the exception of using “pounds” as a reference. This isn’t a huge mistake, but wouldn’t be commonly used in Australia.
The language in the Testimonials aren’t overtly wrong, but Aussie slang just doesn’t fit most of the testimonials. It’s hard to describe or to explain how they aren’t genuine testimonials from Australia, however, once you look at it you should be able to tell that it’s just not right.
What is most surprising, is that the owner of this site has researched popular payment methods in Australia. It mentons, Bank Transfers, PayID and Cryptocurrency.
I have yet to find a site that sells weed online that references PayID as a payment method. This is the first.
How do I know this site is a scam?
Firstly, there’s no GST calculated in the Cart area when you go to check out. It may sound peculiar to notice this, however the ATO requires GST to be added on top of any sales at the point of sale. Most legimate sites in Australia, will include GST at the point of sale.
Secondly, the dates of the testimonials extend back to 2021 and 2022. This site was only launched in 2023. Therefore, it’s impossible for these testimonials to be legitimate.
Overall, the owner of this site, has done an amazing job pretending to be a legitimate online site that sells marijuana. But with a few minor errors, this site is busted as a scam.
Conclusion: AussieHoochDelivery.com is a scam
Weed Approach Australia (WeedApproach-AU) – Legit or Scam?
Weed Approach Australia uses an old school row of sliders to promote their cannabis products. It’s annoying to be honest, because buyers simply just want to see the products on sale.
It’s supposedly based in Melbourne, with no specific address, however there is a contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
One convincing aspect of this site are the delivery methods. It quite accurately quotes the use of Australia Post, StarTrack, FastWay and Toll as courier options. These delivery methods are very specific for Australia.
How to know it’s a scam site
In the above screen shot, you can see in the FAQ section it hasn’t been populated at all. It uses the default “fill in” gibberish, that website templates often use.
At the bottom left of the screen, you will see a pop up showing the latest sale from Weed Approach Australia. If you watch them long enough, you will see the names are all generic, and the suburbs are always random, none of them are ever the same, which is unusal.
In addition their newsletter section is blank. There is no newsletter.
And lastly, this site links to another site named: MellowJoints which is also based in Melbourne and sells exactly the same products and website content.
Conclusion: WeedApproach-Au.com is a scam
MellowJoints (Australia)- Legit or Scam?
This is an easy one to spot, given that the logo doesn’t display MellowJoints (it displays another company’s logo that is not discernable), and that the Privacy Page has yet to be properly completed. In fact, the Privacy Page is still raw and has no content.
The Contact Details per below:
24/7 Customer support
Phone: +61 3 9016 4188
are in a similar format to Weed Approach Australia, using gmail accounts and only suggesting that the company is based in Melbourne, nothing else.
Conclusion: MellowJoints.com is a scam
Weed4Au (Weed 4 Australia)- Legit or Scam?
Weed 4 Australia is supposedly based in Sydney, with the contact details displayed as:
Email 1: email@example.com
Email 2: Sales@weed4au.com
Location: Sydney, Australia
Telephone: +61 2 8003 7149
This format, is surprise, surprise, exactly the same format as other scam sites that has been reviewed.
Another similarity, is the above article. Exactly the same heading and the same content that is reflected on other scam sites.
It’s relatively clear, that this site is part of a co-hort of sites that aim to rip off Australians.
Conclusion: Weed4Au.com is a scam
MarijuanaShopAustralia – Legit or Scam?
This site has exactly the same format as many other sites reviewed, and even has the same logo!
No need to go further in saying that this site is a scam.
Conclusion: MarijuanaShopAustralia.com.au is a scam
BuyWeedOnlineAustralia – Legit or a Scam?
This site makes reference to the use of a Medication Card. I believe, the intended to reference the Australian healthcare system which uses a Medicare Card.
This site is unique with its background story of starting out as a small farm. The grammar is coarse, if not written by a bunch of primary school kids. It’s also shares exactly the same background as the site: “Aussie THC Edibles”
Also, there’s no payment details or options that they talk through.
And lastly, there’s no company logo!
Conclusion: BuyWeedOnlineAustralia is a scam
Update: this site has been renamed to BuyWeedAustraliaOnline.net
Other Scam Sites
- AussieWeedHome – references the UK with UK content, but markets for Australia.
- LotBuds.com – (Same design as AussieWeedHome)
- AussieTHCEdibles – has exactly the same About Us content as BuyWeedAustraliaOnline
- 420DailyHighClub – No payment methods are available
- JointUpAu – No payment methods are available
- SteveMedsStore – No payment methods are available
- HappyHigh.com.au – About page is not complete
In short, there is no legitimate recreational online weed shop for Australians, because it is illegal.
The list of scam Australian Online Weed Sites are:
- WeedApproachAustralia (WeedApproach-Au)
Any online site that comes up in a search for Australians, that sells cannabis is a fraud, a lie, a scam.
