At first glance, the process of making hard marijuana candy may seem rather complicated. But we assure you that if you decide to make it anyway, you will never regret it and will even want to make these sweet little drops of heaven again and again. We bet you have rummaged all the Internet including the very last page of the Google search but found nothing worthwhile. So did we and decided to make our own recipe. Keep reading and get ready to run to the supermarket for ingredients!
The point is to avoid the separation of the candy mix. There are several things that make the candy mixture separate, like heat, humidity, or adding too much cannabutter. When making edibles of any type, always check if your butter is salty or not. The thing is that after you add marijuana to the butter, it starts to taste saltier.
Ingredients and items you need to have
– candy thermometer with the temperature limit of up to 400 degrees
– molds for candies that will withstand the temperature of 300+ degrees
– metal saucepan of medium size
– spoon (also metal)
– 1 cup cane sugar
– 1 cup corn syrup
– 1 cup water
– 2 tablespoons honey
– 2 teaspoons flavor
– 2 tablespoons cannabutter
1) Combine sugar, water, and corn syrup in a saucepan and mix until the sugar dissolves completely. Boil the mixture checking the temperature with a candy thermometer.
2) In another pan, boil water. Warm honey and cannabutter separately.
3) The candy mixture should boil until it reaches 270 degrees.
4) As soon as the mixture reaches 270 degrees (use the candy thermometer for checking), add warm honey and mix very slowly.
5) Boil the mixture up to 270 degrees again and then add cannabutter. Boil up to 300 degrees if you want to get real hard candy. Keep in mind that if you boil the mixture to more than 325 degrees, THC will start turning into CBD, and you will never get the euphoric effect from your edibles.
6) Before removing the saucepan from the heat, add 2 teaspoons of your favorite flavoring to the mixture.
7) Pour the mixture into molds and let it cool off. Usually, it takes from six hours up to one night.
