Gingerbread Cannabis Grow House For Christmas!


Gingerbread Cannabis Grow House For Christmas!

There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING more festive for the holidays than a gingerbread house, and this year why not make a Gingerbread Cannabis Grow House For Christmas!

It will take patience, time and preparation – but since most of the world is in isolation, there really is no better time than now.

I’ve heard it being called a Ganja Bread House, but personally, I am partial to calling our creation a Gingerbread Grow House!

Call it whatever you like, but know that THIS will make spirits bright this upcoming Christmas!

It’s so much fun, surprisingly easy, and a great way to pass the time ’cause we all know we have a lot of that this year! (tick,tock)

Baking With Cannabis


If only little stoner elves could sneak inside the kitchen overnight to decarb our weed and make cannabutter!

As I said earlier, a little preparation and a dash of patience will mean that you can not only create a gorgeous gingerbread house infused with Cannabis treats, but you can use it for other yummy weed edible recipes.

Cook Time: 20 minutes
Course: Dessert
Keyword: (Cannabutter), Christmas
Author: Steph Van De Ven
Cost: 40-50 +


  • 7 ounces unsalted butter softened
  • 3 tbsp cannabutter softened
  • 1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs beat them lightly
  • 1 cup dark molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 4 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar powder



  • In a mixer, cream the butter until smooth. Add the sugar, and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, molasses and vanilla and mix some more.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar. Put the dough in the fridge, covered.
  • In the meatine, heat oven to 340°F. Cover two baking sheets with parchment and paper so you're ready!
  • Sprinkle flour on your counter, grab the dough, and divide it in half and roll the pieces out to ¼ inch thickness. Cut out evenly-shaped / measured squares and rectangles from the dough- enough to make your house and roof, and transfer to the prepared sheets. Have extra dough? Make a few extra squares and rectangles as back up.
  • Bake for about 15-18 minutes. The dough should not give when pressed lightly. Allow to cool fully.


  • In a large mixer, whip the powdered sugar with the egg whites and cream of tartar. The process should take about seven minutes. The mixture should be thick enough to hold its shape.
  • Using your icing, glue the walls ( your gingerbread squares) of the house together first. After attaching, allow it to set for at least 20 minutes. Propping the sides is helpful. Continue on with the roof and allow it to set completely. When it's fully 'glued' you can start decorating!
