I don't know about you, but I've been dreaming about cookies. Now is the perfect time to make a bunch of cookies, get all your friends together, and have a cookie exchange! What better way to participate than to arrive with infused ginger snap cookies? They are by far one of my favorite cookies, chewy and crunchy with an alluring spice. They're pretty simple to bake, and they make the house smell amazing. This recipe really gets that spicy scent in the air, and has a nostalgic way of making you feel like it's the holidays. I wish you could smell it! Guess you'll have to make it!
Before you begin, remember to drop by your favorite dispensary and ask for the Chronic Health tincture, sativa or indica, whatever you're feelin'. It's about time to pop on one of your favorite movies for the season, and partake in those Christmas festivities. Enjoy, my friends! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Yield: 36, 11mg cookies
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 11-14 min
Tools to make this recipe: mixer, cookie sheet, parchment paper or silicone mat, measuring cups, measuring spoons, spatula, scoop or tablespoon.
¾ cup butter, softened
¾ cup + 2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 oz bottle Chronic Health Tincture, 400mg
1 large egg
2 cups flour
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon, ground
1 tsp ginger, ground
1 tsp cloves, ground
½ cup sugar, for coating cookies
Think about how medicated you would like for the cookies to be. This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies at 11 mg for each cookie. For this recipe, I use a whole bottle of Chronic Health tincture, 400mg. Consider what dosage is right for you before you decide if you want to double the amount of tincture for your recipe. If you do want to increase your dosage, use 2 bottles Chronic Health tincture and lower your sugar down to ¾ cup. Make a note of what you decided.
Preheat the oven at 350°f, and prep your cookie sheets with parchment or silpat. You may have a small potency loss because of the higher temperature, but you want the cookie to crack. If you don't mind, bake at 325°f.
Mix together Chronic Health tincture, molasses, and sugar until sugar is evenly coated. Cream the sugars and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Next, add the egg and mix until almost incorporated. Mix together your dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Slowly add flour mixture until a dough forms.
Scoop your dough into balls, about the size of a heaping tablespoon, and as equal as possible. Roll cookie balls in sugar before baking. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until you start to see the tops of the cookies crack open. Remove from the oven to cool.
Relax and enjoy.

Hello Friends! With Halloween right around the corner, let's have some fun. My thoughts are going to pumpkin patches, and getting together with your friends and family to go pick that perfect one. You'll even likely find a haunted maze or two, which is the inspiration for this month's recipe. I love Halloween, and carving a jack-o'-lantern to put next to the front door. Here's my spin on Halloween this year… let's make it easy, delicious, and portable by doing popcorn pumpkin balls! A spin on your traditional popcorn ball, these are infused with Chronic Health THC Glycerin tincture, 1oz, 400mg, Sativa. I like to use the sativa option when serving these at a party, and indica when I'm using them to help with sleep. Make sure to stop by your favorite dispensary and get a bottle or 2! So, pick your mood, and let’s get cooking. Bring on the cooler weather, bring on the spooky, bring on the strange. Now, get your friends together to share in these delicious treats while you watch your all time favorite scary movies. Boo!
Yield: 12 Pumpkin balls
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Tools to make this recipe: 1 large pot, spoon, measuring cup, measuring spoon, gloves, spatula
13 cups popped popcorn (plain) + 1 cup extra
16 oz marshmallows
½ cup butter
1 oz cannabis tincture, Halo THC Tincture, 400mg
1 teaspoon vanilla extact
orange food coloring (optional)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional)
1 bag pretzel rods
Think about how medicated you would like each pumpkin ball to be. This recipe makes 12 - 33mg pumpkin balls. For this recipe, use 1 bottle of tincture; use less if you want a lower dose. Consider what dosage is right for you before you do decide, and make a note.
Melt the butter and marshmallows together on low-medium heat in a large pot. Once melted about half way, add your tincture and vanilla extract. Then start incorporating the orange food coloring. Start with 2-3 drops to begin coloring the marshmallow mixture; add more color as needed. Make sure your mixture is fully combined. Remember, this is your medication, so mix thoroughly to ensure that the medication is evenly distributed.
Add the first 13 cups of popcorn to the large pot. Stir until the popcorn is evenly coated with marshmallow. If there is excess marshmallow and you feel it needs it, add the extra cup of popcorn to more evenly distribute the medication. Stir until the popcorn is evenly coated. Remove from heat.
Put on gloves and coat your gloves with cooking spray. Grab handfuls of popcorn until you have 12 balls. You can eyeball them so that they are equal in size. Alternatively, if you have a scale, you can weigh the entire popcorn marshmallow mass and divide that amount in 12 to see how much each popcorn ball should weigh. Smoosh each ball a little bit, and put a broken off end of a pretzel rod in the top to mimic the stem of the pumpkin.
Serve and enjoy!
