Cannabis at Christmas 

Christmas isn’t always an easy time for everyone. In fact, for some, it’s the worst time of year. Whilst, on the other hand, others find it to be the best time of the year. Mclean Hospital writes:

“According to the American Psychological Association, 38% of people surveyed said their stress increased during the holiday season, which can lead to physical illness, depression, anxiety, and substance misuse. The reasons given: lack of time, financial pressure, gift-giving, and family gatherings”

That’s why introducing cannabis into your December holidays might be ideal. The two most commonly-discussed cannabinoids, THC and CBD, both have effects that could add to your season’s celebrations and help with potential mental niggles. These include feelings of euphoria, giggliness, relaxation, sensory-enhancement, anti-anxiety and open-mindedness. Some believe that all uses of cannabis have at least some medical purposes – even if someone only has a puff of a THC joint to feel less socially anxious. Of course any consistent use of cannabis for medical purposes should be researched and perhaps even prescribed, but nonetheless, you might be surprised by how the wonders of cannabis can aid you this Christmas. So, how about these cannabis Christmas cookies?


Before we delve into this beautifully tasty recipe, it’s first important to explain the meaning of decarboxylation. If you already know the meaning of this integral word then feel free to skip to the delicious recipe, but if you perhaps don’t then listen closer. Decarboxylation is key to the making of any cannabis-infused food. But what is it? Well, have you ever tried to eat a raw THC cannabis bud and been surprised that there was no effect whatsoever. Perhaps now that would seem ridiculous, but when you were younger maybe you did give it a go.

Well, the reason it had no effect was because the cannabis had not been decarbed. CBDA or THCA are the two cannabinoids before decarboxlyation, and these cannabinoids don’t have any psychoactive effects. However, the moment they are heated up over time, their potential is unlocked and they become the well-known THC and CBD. To simplify, heating cannabis unlocks its popular effects.

That’s why cannabis is smoked, vaped, or heated and cooked if put in any edibles. Therefore, you cannot just throw some cannabis on top of a cookie and expect anything to happen. No. Cannabis needs to play an integral part in the cooking process. Let’s take a bite into this recipe. 

Cannabis Christmas Cookie Recipe

Delicious special cookies, with a hint of vanilla and Christmas

Note: Remember, it’s your choice which strain of cannabis you choose. It’s also your choice which cannabinoids and terpenes you decide to include in that strain. Do keep in mind that this recipe is assuming that the strain you choose has a THC percentage of around 20%. If it’s a lot more, then consider your portions and the potency of the cookies. 

What you’ll need: 

  • 5 grams of cannabis
  • 230 grams of unsalted butter
  • 225 grams of white sugar
  • 450 grams of flour 
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 4 tsp of salt
  • 4 tsp of baking powder
  • Christmas tree shaped cookie cutter

Method to the Madness: 

Step 1 – Grind the cannabis into a finely ground substance. The smaller the pieces, the quicker and easier it will decarboxylate. 

Step 2 – Preheat your oven to 220 fahrenheit. 

Step 3 – Spread the cannabis evenly over some parchment paper in an oven tray and place it in the oven. Leave it there for 50 minutes, but make sure to check up on it every 10 minutes and mix it around. This will ensure it doesn’t burn. At the end, the cannabis should look a brownish green colour. Take the cannabis out, put it in a bowl, and place it to one side.

Step 4 – Preheat the oven to 350 fahrenheit. Again place parchment paper over a flat oven tray.

Step 5 – Pour the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat it until it’s creamy. This should take about 1-2 minutes. 

Step 5 – Add the vanilla and egg, and continue to beat until all of the ingredients are beautifully combined. 

Step 6 – Chuck in the flour, salt, baking powder and, of course, the decarbed cannabis. Start mixing again, but do it with care. It will feel drier now. Keep mixing until it is all combined but a bit lumpy. 

Step 7 – Spread some flour over your kitchen surface or chopping board so you can roll out the mixture without it sticking. Then, begin rolling out the mixture (dough). You should aim for a thinness of about 0.5cm. Keep throwing flour over it when necessary to avoid stickiness. 

Step 8 – Once you have successfully rolled out dough, use your cookie cutter to press out the shapes. These will be the cookies. Any shape is fine, although we suggest Christmas tree shaped cookies. 

Step 9 – Now you have the shaped cookies, you can carefully place them on the pre-heated parchment paper. Then, put them in the oven. Cook these in the oven for 10 minutes. The cookies should begin to look golden.

Step 10 – Take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool completely. This is the final cooking process. 

What Should I Have Them With?

So, now you have some beautifully tasty cannabis Christmas cookies. These cookies taste of vanilla and have a lovely sweet taste but perhaps you’d like something extra to go with it. Understandable. Well, we have some suggestions for you. 

Vanilla Ice Cream

Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of one of your cookies and serve it like that. This will ensure that no one has a dry mouth. Maybe even consider throwing some strawberries on top too if you fancy.

Melted Chocolate

Melt some chocolate (white, black or milk) in a saucepan and drip it over the cookie. Again, this will add some sticky, delicious wetness to your pudding. 

Silver balls & Icing sugar

Place some icing sugar on top of the cookies and decorate it with silver balls. This will definitely match the Christmas aesthetic. 

Chopped Banana & Cream

Chop some banana up and place it on top of the cookies. Then, douse it with some tasty cream. 


Or, finally, maybe consider just keeping the cookie plain. They’re tasty enough on their own, and the euphoric cannabis side-effects should make them special enough. 


Whether you love Christmas or despise it, look forward to it or dread it, these cannabis Christmas cookies should put a smile on your face. Cooking can be a fun venture, if you enjoy what it is that you’re creating. These cookies are easy, fun, and creative. Plus, you know that by the end you’ll have a pile of delicious cannabis cookies that you can share with whoever you want this Christmas. Or, have them by yourself and watch a film. It’s up to you. Christmas is about relaxing. Christmas is about family. Christmas is about love. Christmas is about whatever you want it to be about. It’s only a day afterall. Whatever you decide to do this holiday, we wish you a merry time.
