Weed hard candy should be eaten with caution. Each recipe explains the servings that it should be divided into. It is recommended to being with one candy and wait two hours to fully gauge its effects before consuming more. Edibles will produce an intense long-lasting high that can be uncomfortable to wait out if you over consume, so it’s best to stay cautious.

Hard Candy Recipe

[EDIT] Just found this recipe to be of Paula Dean over at Food network. Although the Cannabis wasnt her idea. (nor mine)

First off let me say that this recipe isnt mine, I found it on the internet last week sometime. Second, they’re delicious and easy to make!

What you’ll need:

1/4 cup Cannabutter. (i used 1/2 cup)
3/4 Cup sugar.
1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup.
i Box (3 oz) Jello. any flavor will do.

I used orange (3 oz) and lime. (about 3/4 oz) to help with the extra butter added.
first time i used Raspberry and lime and was fantastic!

Also you’ll need either 20 lollipop sticks OR candy molds.i use candy molds for all my candy making. Youll also need a Candy Thermometer.

Butter two candy sheets or your candy molds. On mine, i didnt Pre-butter mine. they pop right out of my candy molds with no problem.

In a small sauce pan over low heat, stir butter, sugar and corn syrup until the sugar has fully dissolved. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

Put the candy thermometer into the pot (mine clamps on the side) and let boil till the heat reaches 275 degrees. Once it reaches 275, pour in the jello and stir (rapidly) till the jello/sugar mixture is smooth.

Remove from heat and take caution while pouring, as this melted sugar is HOT HOT HOT and can cause serious injury!

Use a metal spoon (i used a table spoon) to carefully pour the mixture into the molds, slowly yet in a quick manner. It sets up pretty quickly if youre going too slow.

after they have cooled to the touch i cover them with powdered sugar (confectioners sugar) so that if they were to start to “sweat”, they would’nt stick to one another.

These are great candies to snack on. Take them to work for that final hour or 2 before getting off, a ball game, or just eat when you get a candy fit. Ill be making more candies (of my own recipe completely) soon and will post as i do.

hope you enjoy these little gems as much as i do.
