To top it off, they've partnered up on a competition to grow the largest marijuana plant in Mzansi, offering a R1000 cash prize for the best bushmastery.

TransfOrmus, the parent company of Enormous Bud, explains that the kits do not include the seed because buying and selling dagga seeds remains unlawful.

The seeds are still illegal to sell or even give away. However, we know that seeds are very widely available.
