Darknet marketplaces (DNMs) provide a wide range of services beyond those commonly portrayed by the media. One of these is the provision of pain relief drugs for the terminally ill. In this guide, we run through the process for obtaining CBD, a cannabis oil compound that provides comfort to people suffering from chronic pain, anxiety, and mood disorders.
The Darknet Is a Refuge for the Desperate and the Downtrodden
In 2016, a close friend of mine was diagnosed with terminal cancer. As part of her therapy, she began self-medicating cannabidiol (CBD), derived from the cannabis plant. It helped her to relax and to sleep better. Every time she purchased CBD capsules, she was technically breaking the law: in Britain, as in many countries, cannabis products are illegal. Last year, an outcry over a seven-year-old boy denied the right to use CBD to control his epilepsy seizures prompted the government to soften its stance, but the oil still remains all but impossible to obtain for pain relief purposes – only doctors can prescribe it in extremely narrow circumstances. Even in the U.S., companies such as Stripe refuse to process payments for CBD.
On October 31, my friend lost her struggle with cancer. She was 29. The following day, the law permitting the prescription of CBD came into effect in the U.K. For anyone who finds themselves in similar circumstances to my friend, CBD oil can help to make the pain manageable as well as minimizing discomfort. If you’re not fortunate enough to know a cannabis grower, the darknet is your best bet for getting hold of the stuff.
