If i was to use only thc sugar, how does the recipe differ?
Everything will end out the same. I regularly make candy with cannasugar and coconut oil tincture, with no difference in product.
Ur just gonna have an extra powerful candy
I’m just wondering how many times it has to be said that oil infusions won’t work.
Today is October 11th I just did recipe with oil it made a semi hard semi hard soft chew not bad
Why do you say this ? I have used coconut oil extracts and made hard candy. They seem to be a winner according to friends and family. I am a newbie and learning by doing, I find adding food coloring, flavoring an canna oil at temperatures above 300* F to be risky. I have slightly burned a batch, called it “toffee” flavor and moved on. However, I am still looking for the sweet spot. I have had batches harden quickly when I have waited to for temperatures, below 250* F . Eating the errors is the only bright side. It’s been a learning process for sure and alcohol based tincture may be a better way to go but not available option for me. I have burned several batches of sugar along the way. The temperature moves quickly once the sugar hits 250. Pay attention is my best advice. I’m still fine tuning and probably need better equipment but, it’s just a hobby. We enjoy the low doses and stabality of the final product, shelf life, etc… I just worry about burning off all my oil and cannabis if added at too high a temperature. It’s a learning process that has a cost for sure. Any ideas readers .
I used the recipe using just tincture, and the oil came to the top.
I’ve made this kind of candy every year minus the THC for Christmas and its always been perfect. So….I’m a bit perplexed.
Put a teaspoon of sunflower/soy lecithin into the mix to help the oil infuse with the water in the mix.
This will help with the oil/water barrier and help meld the mixture together
I used an alcohol based tincture as is hyperlinked in Jacob’s recipe and did not have this issue. Candies came out stellar. Stop wasting your oil tincture on this process.
What kind of tincture did you use? Because tincture is not oily
If you are using a high dose tincture – it will be oily because the THC is an OIL. That’s the problem with people having medical issues, they need better and stronger recipes. May I suggest you as the writer, look into this? Honey is a beautiful thing to work with in making candies and bonding the thc to at higher doses.
Would glycerin tincture work?
I used an alcohol based tincture, reading that people are using oil tinctures with no success, I would just stick to the alcohol tincture that the author has linked in his recipe.
How do I get your book
You can get it here Pamela:
The last time I cooked candy, after it came to temp, I removed it from heat & added my tincture (1oz alcohol based). The room temp tincture mixing with the hot candy caused a lot of spitting and splattering of tincture all over my stove. At what temp can the candy be cooled enough before adding tincture to try to minimize this?
Thanks. I just decided to give it a go again & found your site.
You can just leave the candy for about 30 seconds of the heat, and than slowly pour in the tincture As showed in video.
It is important that the tincture is not cold, as the spattering than might happend. Try to warm up the tincture a bit next time and you will be fine.
If I want stronger candies, do I just add more tincture? Sorry if that’s a stupid question. 🙄🙂
Can i use cbd oil if so, how much should b used ? . Low dose. Use it to manage shoulder pain
Use alcohol based tinctures for this method. He has a recipe hyperlinked above.
Is there any reason why the tincture (coconut oil base) would not completely mix? It seemS like I’m wasting oil because it just sits on top on the candy, no matter how much I stir which I don’t want to do too much of. Will adding the tincture at a lower temperature help?
I believe liquid lecithin is necessary with the THC oil to emulsifi the oil. I am going to use lecithin when I am making a water-based product. Lecithin might help make the THC more bio-available too?
Tincture and Coconut oil are two different infusion methods. If you use a Fat such as coconut oil, than yes it floats on the candy. Therefore, the recipe calls for Tincture, which is alcohol based. Not fat based.
Will this recipe work if I substitute lemon juice for the water?
Can I pour the mixture into a squeeze bottle to get it into the molds or will it harden too quickly? I just feel like I’ll make a mess trying to pour out of the pot.

How to make marijuana candy
Marijuana candy recipes
2 are the marijuana candy recipes I want to share with you in this article, so you can sweeten up a meeting with friends or just give yourself a delight when you feel like it.
Since I’ve had a family, my night outings have been reduced to the bare minimum, at least when it comes to going out for drinks or dancing. However, the other day I met up with my friends for dinner and whatever else was going on and, to my surprise, I walked into a traditional cocktail bar in my town: they had homemade whiskey candies!?
After trying them out and talking a little with the waiter, I saw clearly: if they had made their star product a tourist phenomenon, I could also make weed candy in my own home.
So I went crazy looking for marijuana candy recipes, I chose the recipes that I thought were simpler and today I come to share them with you, because I think it is an experience that is really worthwhile.
No, candy is not just for children or grandparents! They are for all ages, although of course, those that I invite you to prepare today, better not to give them to either of them, only to friends with whom you share your tastes and, of course, who know beforehand what it is about.
I assure you that you will love the experience and it is much easier than it may seem at first glance. So what, you imagine making your own cannabis caramel? Yeah? Then get some paper and pen because we’re starting..✍
⭐ Cannabis Candy with Chocolate
One of the first things that was clear to me when I was looking for recipes to make these marijuana sweets was that they really did their job: to sweeten. This seems so obvious, but it’s not. Why? very simple: cannabis is a plant and as such will always have that rather strong, earthy taste, regardless of whether you smoke or smell the final taste you leave in your mouth is sweet.
So I looked for recipes that had ingredients that really assured me that those candies were going to be real candy and not something bitter, as I’ve been given on occasion to try homemade marijuana candies.
And as I know that chocolate never fails in these cases, the first recipe I’m going to advise you is the one with the following ingredients:
You got it all? Yeah? So keep reading because now we are going with the steps to take:
Step 1: Take a baking pan and grease it so that the mixture you’re going to put in it doesn’t stick to make the candies – how? with cannabis butter, but if you prefer you can do it with hemp seed oil.
Take a baking pan and grease it
Step 2: Cut the chocolate and marshmallows into small chunks so that it is easier for you to put them in the blender.
Cut the chocolate and marshmallows
Step 3: Then, in a large enough casserole dish, heat the marijuana butter, condensed milk and sugar over a medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent them from sticking! And bring it to the boil. At that point, reduce the heat to low and stay the same for 2 hours (remember to turn it over every few hours).
heat the marijuana butter, condensed milk and sugar
Step 4: After this time, add the chocolate, the marshmallows and the optional ingredients (if you have chosen them) and go around until everything falls apart. A word of advice: I’d give it a couple of turns with the mixer to make everything more homogeneous.
add the chocolate, the marshmallows and the optional ingredients
Step 5: Pour the mixture into a mould and when it is cold or can be put in the refrigerator, introduce it. I’d say a whole day. But if you don’t have that much time, at least 4 or 6 hours (depending on how cold your fridge is) to make it more or less hard.
Pour the mixture into a mould and put in the refrigerator
Step 6: Remove the mould and cut it into small pieces. If you want to roll the blanket over your head, now is the time to put those portions on paper to make them look like real candy.
Remove the mould and cut it
And, remember, you’re not smoking marijuana! So the effect will take at least an hour to arrive, but when it does, it will be much stronger, so go slowly. Eat very little and see how your body reacts. And, of course, between bites, leave an hour so you don’t get any fright
👾 Marijuana-flavored candy tongues
Here is our marijuana candy recipe. I don’t know about you, but I love spicy candy tongues. So I’ve been looking for a recipe that, although it’s not going to taste the same, it does look similar. You’re gonna need it to make it:
Once you have all the ingredients at your fingertips, the steps to follow are as simple as the first recipe
Step 1: Do you know what the Bain Marie is? Then you know you have to take two pots of different sizes that can overlap each other. In the first one put two or three fingers of water to heat and in the second one, the sugar, water and honey I mentioned in the list above. Stir until a viscous mass is created; the caramel.
Heat the sugar, water and honey in a bain-marie
Step 2: After about 10 to 15 minutes (once you have the texture I was telling you about), add the coloring and butter and continue stirring until you have a uniform dough.
Add the coloring and butter
Step 3: Take a long mould, grease it and pour in the mixture you have just made. Make sure it doesn’t get too high, if you want to make the strips I mentioned later.
Take a long mould
Step 4: as if it were magic, little by little you will see that the mixture is hardening. Leave it as long as you need to get the texture you want. Once it is ready, cut it into strips and sprinkle the icing sugar over them.
Cut it into strips
NOTE: If it is more convenient for you to eat, once you have the strips made, you can also cut them into small cubes. Also, if you want to give shape to the candies, instead of taking the long mould I told you about, choose a special one to make shapes, it will be very funny!
🔥 Chewing gum and lollipops of marijuana
You may also find that you don’t like this kitchen stuff very much and prefer to buy your marijuana candies already made. Where? In our online store.
On the one hand, we have the famous cannabis lollipops that you can find in any coffee shop in Amsterdam; in fact, they come straight from there
So, what’s so special about these lollipops? They have all the flavor of marijuana, but with the advantage that it has no psychoactive or medicinal effects, because it does not contain THC or CBD and its sale is 100% legal. In addition, they are gluten and lactose free, making them accessible to all marijuana lovers.
On the other hand, we also have marijuana gum. In this case they do contain CBD, so you can benefit from the properties of this substance typical of therapeutic marijuana, with anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant and help you to calm stress and anxiety in a natural way.
These chewing gums belong to the company Endoca, which is committed to organic and natural products and, therefore, free of sugars and chemical preservatives. Of course, its sale is totally legal and in each box you can enjoy 10 units of gum, without psychoactive effects.
You have already seen that making cannabis candies is very simple and that if you prefer you can buy them and forget about complications. In this second case they will not have psychoactive effects, but you will be able to enjoy a really delicious taste and all your friends will be able to consume them without problems.
But I’ve already talked too much; now I’d like you to tell me about your experience with cannabis candies – have you ever tried them? have you got another recipe you’d like to share with us??
