how to make cannabis hard candy

HARD CANDY

What you will need:

Cookie sheet
Parchment paper
Wooden spoon
cooking pot (preferably stainless steel)

Ingredients:
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
2 teaspoon flavoring (or as desired)
2 teaspoon medicated oil**(tincture)
1/4 teaspoon coloring (optional)

Note: Measure your flavoring and food coloring before starting. These ingredients need to go in quickly, so having them prepared in advance will make things easier.

**For hard candy a oil infused with keef or hash makes a stronger candy**

Place cookie sheet upside down on counter top with the bottom facing up. The air underneath the sheet will help your candy cool.
Prepare cannabis candy molds with nonstick spray and place on the upside down cookie sheet. Or lay parchment paper on the cookie sheet and spray with nonstick spray if you aren’t using molds.
Over medium heat in your stainless steel pan, stir together the sugar, water, corn syrup, and cream of tartar. Stir with wooden spoon until the sugar is dissolved.
Use your spoon or a pastry brush with a little water to remove sugar crystals from the sides of the pan if they form.
Continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil.
Place a candy thermometer into mixture. Don’t let the thermometer touch the bottom of sides of the pan.
Continue to boil the mixture without stirring until the temperature reads 300 F.
Immediately remove the pan from heat.
When the temperature reaches 275 F, add flavoring, tincture, food coloring, and citric acid. If the mixture is too hot when these are added the heat will burn them off.

Working quickly, pour the mixture into candy molds or onto the parchment paper. If using parchment paper, you can shape your candies into circles, making them easier to store or make into lollipops.
Let candies cool for 10 minutes or until hard. Wrap them in plastic wrap or storage container of your choice.
Enjoy!

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!
