It’s one of coffee’s favorite cookies – the world-famous-especially-at-Christmas-time: Cannabis Ginger Snap Cookies Recipe!

So why are they called ginger snaps? For the longest time I thought it was because when you bit into one, it would snap.

Nope. I’ve recently learned it’s because they’re a ‘snap’ to make! Makes sense, and so does adding Cannabis to these cookies, right?

Imagine this: you’re preparing for the holidays and your partner wants to start a new tradition.

Being the creative Canna-Chef that you are, you decide that the best Christmas morning would be the morning where you enjoy Cannabis coffee and weed cookies.

Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
