Cannabis Candy Recipe
As it usually is when making edibles, getting it right is tough. The candy not only has to be potent enough to be considered medicine but taste good as well! The candy is worthless if it doesn’t have both of those qualities. But making the perfect batch of cannabis candy treats is in the following recipe!
2/3 cups white corn syrup
1 tsp flavoring of your choice (adjust if you want but this is really the perfect amount!)
Food coloring (so they look nice, obviously!)
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
9.5 grams of dry powdered hash
First things first, spray the candy molds with cooking spray so that the mix doesn’t stick when you get to the step that requires it. Put the sugar and corn syrup together in a pot and put it on high heat until the mix begins to boil. Reduce the heat to low medium and keep an eye on the temperature. Once the temp hits 300, remove the heat and add in the hash and food coloring. Stir this mix vigorously. You need to make sure that the hash has been completely mixed in. About a minute should do it because the mix will start to harden soon after that. Add your candy mix in to the molds. You can either make them just candies or you can add in sticks to make them lollipops!
Let the mix harden in the mold and then remove and wrap them. This recipe will give you about 40 candies. You can always add in more hash but be sure that that’s the form of cannabis that you use. Kief could also be used in this recipe if you have enough of it. These candies last a good amount of time, about 2 to 3 hours on an empty stomach and an hour after a meal. No one should be afraid to make cannabis candy , especially when it’s such a benefit to those who are always on the go and enjoy eating their weed rather than smoking it. They’re very discreet but don’t let anyone sneak one behind your back!
