Question about British slang used in "Shaun of the Dead"?

Hello there! I'm an American with a question about some British slang I heard in a really cool movie, "Shaun of the Dead."

When Ed's friend Noodle called him to see if he had any marijuana, Ed said that he didn't have any to sell. Ed said he "only had Henry." What did he mean?
