CANNAZON MARKET HAS SHUT DOWN
What is Cannazon Market?
Cannazon is one of the specific Darknet Markets, which is dedicated to only an explicit kind of product. As the name suggests, this product is mainly Cannabis, and the Cannazon Marketplace primarily deals with its trading. If the market site is up, you can find the onion link for Cannazon to the right of this article.
The Cannazon market is one of the recent darknet marketplaces, which is around a year old now, being available since 2018. On this page, you will find a link to the Cannazon Onion. Beginning as an exclusive cannabis market, it positions itself away from the markets that have other products and drugs to offer.
Based on its exclusivity and novelty, it is important to provide an overview of the market along with its features and aspects. Moreover, as a potential customer, you need to know and understand benefits that you can avail and issues that are usually faced by the deals or buyers over the interface. This would make your transition with the Cannazon marketplace user-friendly.
Having said that, let’s start off by looking at the registration process required by the marketplace.
Does Cannazon requires Marketplace registration?
Of course! Like all the other markets trading over the Darknet, signing up to Cannazon also entails a proper registration and an account. In fact, you can have one of your own by clicking on the link in this page without actually having to reveal your personal identity. However, if you do not want to register, you can still have all the access to the Cannazon link. But being an un-registered user, you’ll not be allowed to place orders. So guest users are able to browse the products being offered, check out the dealers’ interface and study about its features without registering.
The registration process is not very strict and has similar requirements like any other marketplace on the onion web. The requirements for registration include a username, a password which you want to set for your account and then a PIN which is essential in case of recovering your account. This PIN is supposed to be of eight characters or more and should be different than the password.
One of the minor problems while registering is that the Captcha is not always very cooperative. However, at the end of the day registration process doesn’t entail the user to enter any personal information, keeping the identity of the user completely confidential. It also doesn’t require any cross verification from an email and immediately activates the account as soon as all the mandatory details are filled.
User Interface of Cannazon Market
The user interface of Cannazon marketplace is pretty upfront, clear and easy to use with the presence of a search bar for finding that exact thing which is on the user’s mind. The search bar can help you to specify the location of the shipment or the destination of the order delivery, along with the products underlying in specific price range.
Apart from that search bar, there is a detailed search-panel on the left of the Cannazon link, acting as a filter for its users. It thus enables the user to choose more options to filter from, such as specific vendor choice, currency selection, source of the product and delivery as well as the minimum and maximum price range.
If these features are used in the right and appropriate way, a user is completely capable of seeing the products, which only satisfy his/her budget requirements, needs, and shipping preferences. The user interface also provides a transparent rating of vendors, with how much sales that vendor has made and the other product details.
Also, another feature that makes the usage of Cannazon links easy-going is the ability to convert the price there and then in EUR, GBP, CHF, EUR, and CAD according to the users’ choice. This enables users to tangibly understand the prices of the product in their preferred currency, without actually having to manually convert the prices being displayed in BTC or XMR. Other than that, the weblink also has a section of a very detailed FAQS (Frequently Asked Questions) making the platform easier to use and navigate to desired products within it.
The products of Cannazon Marketplace
Although Cannazon market, as mentioned earlier, is very exclusive and limited when it comes to its product offerings but it does have numerous varieties even in Cannabis! Cannazon is growing exponentially, as it has risen to accommodate 235 individual products within the index stock of 2018. These products are categorized depending on their characteristics, such as there are different types of 149 Weed available, same goes for Hash, Edibles, Seeds and Concentrates.
Each of these groups is more distinguished in their own subgroups, for instance, weed having 149 individual listings include drugs such as Indica, Hybrid, Sativa and more so. Weed, origins from itself from Cannabis, thus is also known as one of the very types of Cannabis.
Hash, in the pretext of Cannazon market, also refers to another category of Cannabis. It is further split into Afghan hash, Lebanese hash, Moroccan hash, and other 32 different hash related products. The cheapest hash you will find here is the Zero Hash, which is priced at a minimum of 7.00 EUR, and the most expensive has one with the name of 10gms., of Zahra, with a price going as a high as 66.00 EUR.

Methods of Payment, Shipment and Refund
There is no established policy for shipment days, time or delivery days and time since all vendors present there have their own time of delivery according to their own convenience so the user can choose which suits him/her the most. However, when dealing with Cannazon marketplace, the market assures its users that all orders will be delivered after four days of the order being placed. If, however, this does not happen buyer or vendor mostly, cancels the order or the payment is refunded. Mainly the marketplace deals in Bitcoin (BTC) or Monero (XMR) i.e. digital currency. However, it mainly depends on the vendor, that out of these two (i.e., BTC or Monero) which currency he accepts to complete the purchase.
Payment with Monero
Monero is defined as a digital currency that is mainly used for its feature of offering a high level of anonymity to its users for online transactions. It has several features to enhance privacy that is far better than Bitcoin. Similar to Bitcoin, Monero is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that is decentralized and categorized as a private digital cash. That means it is open source currency created through decentralized, grass-roots development. The digital cash has been in handy since 2014, and its popularity has grown due to its characteristic of anonymization.
Payment with Bitcoin
Bitcoin is also known as a digital currency (cryptocurrency) which is not supported by any central bank or country’s regulatory bodies. It is the most common and the most widely used form of digital currency Each user has digital virtual wallets with BTC stored in them. The wallets, therefore are comprised of the information on the address that user sends and receives BTC currency from. This is also encrypted through peer-to-peer networks to help verify the transactions.
Bitcoin versus Monero
BTC is known to be less private than XMR. For example, transactions with bitcoin are publicly recorded on the blockchain and often include some personal information about the sender or the recipient. But when it comes to XMR, the transactions here are also broadcasted publicly, but it is extremely hard to get to the address of the sender, thus ensuring better anonymity and security while using Darknet marketplaces. On the other hand, BTC is more commonly used currency globally.
How Secure is Cannazon Marketplace?
After having a look at Cannazon’s link and the Cannazon market itself for its products, it all boils down to one thing which is HOW SECURE THE MARKETPLACE ITSELF IS! Security in terms of its technicalities (as in transactions) and morality (as in trusted vendors) is therefore considered in this part of the review.
Starting with the feature of Escrow, which Cannazon marketplace provides. Escrow is essential, being a financial agreement contracted through a third party. Using escrow, the third-party stores and controls the payment of funds required for completing the transaction for two parties. The main aim of Escrow is to make transactions more secure in terms of online payments to minimize fraud. Consequently, it does that through keeping the digital currency safe in the escrow account, which is sent or released once all the requirements and terms are satisfied as supervised by the third-party. In other words, the presence of escrow account in Cannazon market place represents that all the payments and transactions are not sent instantly to the vendors but are kept secured with the authorities of marketplace till the buyer gets the products delivered. This way, transaction in Cannazon can be carried out super safely, without the risk of fraud or losing money to a faulty vendor.
After that, there is another feature of 2-FA using PGP. This delivers high-quality authentication of vendors. For example, if someone tries to hack the vendor’s account, the effort will be relegated through the feature of 2-FA using PGP. The 2-FA is basically, a 2-factor authentication that is not enabled on the Darknet Market being accessed through mobile phones OTPs, so PGP can help to do so. Under this circumstance, the users are provided a PGP encrypted message, which is mostly a phrase, that is later deciphered only by that individual, through the user’s private key. And it is only upon successfully decoding the message, that the individuals are granted access to those accounts.
This process ensures that even if the passwords can be hacked, the accounts can remain safe.
Moreover, this feature also supports both multi-sig transactions, such as 2 of 2 and 2 of 3. This is used as an advanced technical protocol, in the case of bitcoin transactions which essentially entails 2 out of three verifiers to authorize a transaction involving BTC before the funds can be moved to another account or transferred.
The individuals engaged in the 2 of 3 multi-sig transactions are, therefore, the buyer, the vendor and in this case Cannazon Marketplace, which helps to reduce or prevent vendor autonomy on transaction funds during the process of trade.
Finally, the users of Cannazon Marketplace can also use the PIN feature which, as discussed earlier was enabled at the start of the registration process. The PIN is the ultimate solution to recovering the account passwords.
All in all, the Cannazon market place for Cannabis seems pretty secure with the presence of these features and does not lack security issues that might be present in any other Darknet web. However, there might be some risk attached when it comes to exit scam. The possibility of exit scams always exists, even with other Darknet markets. Even Cannazon can shut down their site, stopping vendors to access payments or canceling all the withdrawals, and absorbing all the cryptocurrency in the users’ wallet. However, for now, nothing like that can be suspected out of their behavior, making Cannazon, one of the best marketplaces in terms of security, professionalism, user-friendliness, and user-importance.
As always, when visiting any darknet market make sure to only use trusted links, such as the onion link for Cannazon on the top right.
