Cannabis lollipops are a delicious way to consume cannabis. They are easy to make and can be a fun activity to do with friends. They can also be a great way to medicate, as they provide fast-acting relief from pain, anxiety, and other symptoms.
To make cannabis lollipops, you will need:
– 1 cup of sugar
– ¼ cup of light corn syrup
– 1 teaspoon of cannabis extract
– 1 drop of food coloring (optional)
– Lollipop sticks
– A silicone lollipop mold
– A candy thermometer
1. Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and cannabis extract in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
2. If using food coloring, add it now and stir until combined.
3. Insert the candy thermometer into the mixture and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches 300°F (149°C). Remove from heat immediately.
4. Carefully pour the hot mixture into the silicone mold, being careful not to burn yourself. Insert the lollipop sticks into each cavity and let the lollipops cool completely before removing them from the mold.
What You Will Need
-1/2 cup of granulated sugar
-1/2 cup of light corn syrup
-1 tablespoon of water
-1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
-Natural food coloring (optional)
-1 teaspoon of cannabis oil or tincture
-Candy molds or silicone lollipop molds
Step One: Preparing the Cannabis
The first step in making your own cannabis-infused lollipops is to decarboxylate your cannabis. This process unlocks the THC in the plant material, making it more potent and psychoactive. You can learn more about decarboxylation here.
To decarboxylate your cannabis, preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your ground cannabis on a baking sheet, and bake for 30-40 minutes. Keep an eye on it, stirring every 10 minutes or so, to prevent burning.
Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, it’s time to infuse it into the lollipop mixture.
Step Two: Making the Lollipop Mixture
In a saucepan, mix together 1/2 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, and the tincture.
Heat this mixture on medium heat, stirring often, until it reaches a boil.
Once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and let it go for about 5 minutes without stirring.
After 5 minutes, take the pan off of the heat and stir in 1/4 teaspoon of your chosen extract.
Step Three: Pouring the Lollipops
Slowly pour the mixture into the lollipop molds, filling them almost to the top. Be careful not to get any of the mixture on the sticks, as this can make them harder to insert later. If you have any air bubbles in your lollipops, use a toothpick to pop them.
Step Four: Adding the Cannabis
Now that the lollipop mixture is almost ready, it’s time to add the cannabis extract. Start by heating the extract on low heat until it becomes liquid. Once it’s liquid, carefully add it to the lollipop mixture and stir until everything is evenly combined. Be sure not to add too much extract, as this can make the lollipops too potent.
Step Five: Finishing the Lollipops
Once the lollipops have cooled and hardened, they are ready to be enjoyed. If you used molds to make your lollipops, simply pop them out of the mold. If you used a tray and cutter, use the cutter to cut out lollipops of your desired size and shape. Enjoy your delicious cannabis-infused lollipops!
Storing Your Cannabis Lollipops
Once your lollipops are fully cooled and hardened, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. If you want to keep them for longer, you can store them in the freezer for up to two months.
