Darknet Cannabis demand grows during lockdown

Due to ongoing shortages and movement restrictions, cannabis users are turning to the darknet according to a European drug agency report.

According to an analysis by a Lisbon-based agency of three darknet market sites, activity has increased 25% since movement restrictions have come into place.

Most of these buyers were not looking for hard drugs but instead seeking cannabis. Perhaps unsurprising since cannabis is Europe’s most common illicit drug.

The report said, “The cannabis market is a large one and many regular cannabis users may have decided to stock up, anticipating market disruption during the lockdown period.”

While sellers were left with no choice but to reduce their in-person activities, customers still wanted to continue their personal use.

Cannazon sold an estimated 4.3 million euros worth of goods between January and March. This is representative of around 1.6 metric tonnes of cannabis.
