The holidays and delicious, comforting food seem to go hand in hand. Whether you are buying or baking, it is a glorious time of year to share and indulge in your favorite treats.  

I have been baking gifts for years, and starting around the end of November my house smells like ginger, chocolate, and peppermint. I tend to keep the doses low this time of year, and these three cannabis-infused delights make for the perfect holiday treat while opening gifts.  

Be safe and indulge wisely this holiday season. And remember that when it comes to cannabis, less is often more.
