Starke Ayres have partnered with bio-active cell food supplier Enormous Bud are offering a free 'How To Grow your Bush Outdoor' guide along with each kit purchase.

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.

Interest in learning how to grow cannabis is high, following the Constitutional Court ruling that decriminalised the private use and cultivation of dagga last year.

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.
