Cannabis Infused Cinnamon Buns w/ Cream Cheese Icing

Cannabis Infused Cinnamon Buns

Today we are hopping in the kitchen and creating cannabis infused cinnamon buns with cream cheese icing.  Cinnamon buns are a delectable dessert with a fluffy sweet dough, filled with cinnamon brown sugar mix, and topped with cream cheese icing!

The dough does take a long time to prepare but it is worth every minute you wait.  There is approx. 2 hours of waiting time when creating this recipe so don’t think it will be a quick start to finish recipe, it’s not.
