What should I know before cooking cannabis-infused candy?

If you’re a newbie with any weed lollipops recipe then you should consider that the effect of edibles is quite different from smoking or vaping marijuana. The biggest disadvantage is that you’re to wait for the effects much longer in comparison with smoking weed, for instance. Yet, when eating weed, the high lasts much longer compared to any other way of cannabis consumption.

Besides that, when it comes to edible lollipop recipes, you should check if all the needed ingredients are at your hand prior to starting cooking. Thus, the major of cannabis lollipop recipes require decarboxylated cannabis concentrate (CO2 extract, hash, etc.) and/or cannabis tincture. The latter is needed for this weed lollipops recipe by the way.

Mind that the process of cooking the cannabis tincture just like cannabutter, cannabis oil and flour is quite time-consuming. That’s why it’s strongly recommended to check this guide with the step-by-step instructions applied.

Equipment

  • 120 ml or 1/2 cup of light corn syrup;
  • 235 ml or 1 cup of sugar;
  • 60 ml or 1/4 cup of filtered water;
  • 1 tablespoon of any flavor you wish;
  • 2-3 tablespoons of marijuana tincture (change the dosage of tincture depending on your experience and effects to get; be careful to avoid bad high).
  1. Candy thermometer;
  2. Saucepan/pot;
  3. Sticks (optional);
  4. Mold.

The 5-step marijuana lollipop recipe

Step 1. Take a saucepan/pot and place there water, syrup, and sugar. Mix that all and turn the heat to medium-high.

Step 2. Stir the ingredients constantly until the mixture becomes uniform and sugar is dissolved. Once it happens and the blend starts boiling, put the thermometer, and monitor until the temperature reaches 150°C.

Step 3. Once the temperature reaches the needed point, turn off the heat and take away the pot/saucepan with the mixture. Leave the thermometer in the pot/saucepan and wait until the temperature drops to 120°C.

Step 4. Once it happens, add the flavor along with the cannabis tincture/oil. Stir all that until the compounds combine.

Step 5. Take the molds and fill them with the blend. If you wish, you can put sticks to easily remove the candies from the forms. Besides that, lollipops with sticks are more comfortable to lick. Leave the lollipops to cool down. 15-20 minutes will be enough. That’s all!

Caution! It’s highly important to monitor the temperature during all stages of the process of cooking the marijuana lollipops for getting “hard and crack” candies.

Just 30 minutes of your time and tasty homemade marijuana lollipops are ready to gladden you! However, be careful and don’t eat too many candies to get enjoyable time only.
