The 37-year-old, from Gwent, South-East Wales, was shocked when her daughter Denny brought her the tubes of seeds wrapped in a black bag when she opened the present. 

Six tubes of the seeds, including one named “Dark Devil Auto”, each included five seeds per container came out of the packaging.

Mum-of-one Mel reported the parcel to Gwent Police, but was told that as the parcel had originated outside of their district nothing could be done. 

Speaking to The Sun she said: “eBay have offered me a refund, as has the initial seller but no one has been able to give me a better explanation of what happened. 

“They came from somewhere in England, and I have complained to eBay but they didn’t want to do much about it other than offer me a refund. 

Seeds marked as "dark devil auto" were amongst the six tubes

“It’s scary that no one seems to know where these came from, and that no one seems to want to find out. 

“My daughter is only six and it’s dangerous for her to be exposed to these things. It is just completely unacceptable. 

“The seller told me that he bought a bundle of toys from an auction house  but then didn’t give any more details and stopped responding. 

“I didn’t open the second package, which was another birthday gift for Denny, because I was so concerned by what I had found in the first one. 

“It’s absolutely disgusting. I don’t want a refund. I want someone to investigate this properly and find out where they came from and stop it from happening again.”

Mel was so horrified by her discovery that she took the parcel outside and set it on fire, along with a second package she had received from the same seller online. 

Although cannabis is a class-B drug in the UK, seeds are legal to possess and sell as long as no reference is made to growing the plant.

It is illegal to grow or attempt to grow the cannabis plant from these seeds unless you have a licence from the Home Office.

A spokeswoman for eBay said: “This is clearly unacceptable behaviour from a seller. 

“eBay never sees the contents of a purchase, however we are currently investigating exactly what happened with this transaction.  The buyer has received a full refund”.
