Since the creation of our Modern Marijuana Industry, all the Seed Banks in the Netherlands, Canada, United States, even in the Latin America and distant Asian nations, are competing for the merit of being the Most Reliable Online Seed Bank that ever existed in the history of humanity.
However, there are other unknown competitors that are infiltrating the market and targets different customers with their impressive skills that lure the public to buy their so-called products and give them nothing in return. Unfortunately, this happens regularly and because of that, we have to be more careful in these times where even the fake news appears to be true.
Is there a chance that you can detect an online weed shop if it is a genuine one or not? What are the ways to avoid Online Scammers in the world of Cannabis Industry?
Knowing the Online Shops
People are innovative and used different websites to sell marijuana goods – from local to overseas, making the sales increase dramatically over the years. With just a click away, you can immediately receive your desired cannabis without the hassle of going out from your home.
With Online Shops, your transaction in buying Marijuana is fast and easy.
True enough that selling of Cannabis is better online compared to Local Shops. With more strains, more choices and modes of payment – online shops easily attract the consumers’ minds. The promising fast, convenient, private and hassle-free transactions are most of the time fulfilled, if not always guaranteed.
However, the danger in buying from Online Shops is more imminent compared to Local counterparts. The government recognized all Local Cannabis Shops, considered as legal and are tax mapped. On the other hand, the majority of these Online Stores are not even accredited nor recognized by the government agencies for their business operations. Despite higher prices, Local Shops help more efficiently in their states or countries, compared with the Online ones.
Five Tricks to Remember
1. Above all, know your state or country laws for the Weeds first
If this is illegal, then most likely, your package may not arrive in time or chase by law enforcers at all. You can’t proceed with the rest of the essential steps if this very first concern is a red flag. How are you going to buy if the act of buying is heavily considered as illegal and punishable by your State Law?
For instance, not all states in the United States allow the public to simply have access to different Marijuana Strains for pure recreation. The system has existed for years and continues to rule for the rest of their states. However, there are states, such as California, Washington State, Oregon, Nevada, and Alaska that legalized the use of Weeds, either for Medical or Recreational Purposes and are now enjoyed by their citizens.
You must undergo Medical Examinations first before the government grants you the Medical Access for any Weed Strains prescribed by an accredited doctor.
2. Check your preferred website for its legal status
You can contact different government agencies for this matter. Avoid scammers with this early and wise move. Yes, I know that you will be having a hard time sorting which sites are legit and bluffs, and this is where asking for your friend’s recommendation steps in. They have experienced transacting with these companies before you, so their pieces of advice may mean a lot for you who are investigating the real weed sites.
A word of mouth from your trusted friends are a great help in the search for reliable weed sites. Just assure them that you will take their pieces of advice seriously and remember the details of what will they tell more.
There are websites that show flashy content, exciting ads, and tempting promos, but before clicking all of it, the site must be filtered first with age verifier, followed by permission to use your browser’s cookies, and the rest of other details will appear verifiable and reliable. You may now go to another section for the performance tracker.
Another indicator of a bad weed shop is that when you open up their online site, there are series of pop-ups appearing before you, indicating that you just have won a special prize from another company which is probably their ‘partner company’. Be careful not to click these buttons or else, a possible danger may happen to you which will lead to worse such as stealing your information.
3. Check for the public’s review
Whether you like it or not, you have to see the public’s review on how does this certain shop run regularly. The best foot forward that Online Weed Shops present to the world is their ability to make the transactions convenient and secretive, unlike when you visit your Local Shops, wherein you have to go outside, let the public see you and feel their whispers of judgment discreetly on you.
Convenience is the most promising feature of all Online Sellers. Customers of different needs are not required to go away and look for Local Shops located elsewhere. Not only that, persons with special needs or disabilities can have easier transactions, not minding their physical appearances judged by people from time to time.
However, there are shops that put their customers in trouble, that’s why you have to check if that Online Shop is indeed active and responds quickly. Again, it will boil down to how the public reacts with their shop through the online reviews.
However, be aware that there are fake reviews, and because of this, you may use different web tools to verify their reactions on whether what they said are pre-fabricated or generic and true at all.
4. It must be accessible 24/7
How are you going to reach your targeted shop? Is it limited to the platforms of social media? Or will you still consider dialing your phone for another option of communication 24/7? The choice is yours.
Remember, weed users are most of the time, paranoid when it comes to shipping their deliveries, especially when they live in the regions where Marijuana items are illegal. Your Weed Seed Shop must have established a well-accessible site with interactive features to make the customers feel accommodated and appreciated.
Apart from that, their online shops must have a quick response team in the event that there are major natural or man-made calamities that could have hit their area, or in the destination of one of their deliveries. It is in small problems and a major crisis that you can see how different Cannabis Shops react, together with their efficiency to prevent problems in worsening.
They must do everything on their part, to make their customers happy and contented.
5.The modes of payment
Do they accept Credit Cards, Bitcoins, Online Banking or just simply cash?
Your terms of payment, especially when you use their services, shall stay undisclosed. All of your Credit Card Information must remain confidential because these shops must simply cut all of your info’s after buying from them. This is in accordance with the banking laws of your country and privacy with your financial transactions. Still having this second thought? Use other cards and see how they are going to respond after your payment.
In the United States, however, they find hard to accept Credit Cards because their national law does not allow them to use banks in dealing with transactions. In this case, the majority of their business deals are thru cash. However, there are reforms being pushed for the accessibility of some Cannabis companies to do business with the local and international banks within the country.
In the event that this shop is a big fraud, prepare yourself for the legal battle and track down that shop with the help of the Justice Department.
Above all, Your Safety is Our Concern
Anybody who wants to be deceived by Online Shops and waste their money? I guess none of you will ever like it. Apart from your money, you have invested efforts and the irreplaceable time which you consumed just to carefully plan your future with the seeds and how to keep their qualities.

As you simply browse the net thru your laptops or phones, you are consuming your Data Plan for the month, which is needed to be paid immediately right after it released its monthly bill. As you verify the company’s authenticity with friends, you are using their time which may be used in other ways that could have made them more productive during that day. Lastly, your eagerness to learn new things by simply planting Cannabis Seeds is invaluable and cannot be matched with any other gifts nor monetary values in the world.
Let us suppress those fraud sites through cooperation and an effective support system.
