Here at Reefer Post, we have a list of different marijuana edible recipes that can be used to make some tasty treats that get you high. For that list, along with many tips on making edibles, click here. This recipe, however, it sort of different than the rest. That is because they are marijuana lollipops! That’s right, you can eat some good candy and get high all at the same time (well not at the same time, you will have to wait until the effects kick in, but you get what I am trying to say).
More candy edible recipes will come out in the near future, this is just the first one. It is a recipe for lollipop edibles. There are actually some benefits that come along with eating lollipop edibles compared to other edibles. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits:
- Edible lollipops contain less calories compared to edible bakery goods (such as cookies and brownies).
- They are also good for those who use edibles for medical purposes and have a hard time chewing (just suck on the lollipop).
- Since a lollipop takes awhile to eat (unless you chew it up), you do not have to worry about getting too high, since the effects will kick in while you are eating the next one.
These are some of the benefits of eating a lollipop edible compared to other edibles. But besides that, let’s get into how to actually make the lollipop edibles.
It may seem like a lot of ingredients, but they are actually very quick to put together and make.
- 3/4 cup of light corn syrup
- 1 cup of water
- 1/8 cup of powdered sugar
- 2 cups of sugar
- Canna oil (made with a half ounce of weed)
- 1 teaspoon of peppermint flavoring
- 2 drops of green food coloring
- Candy molds or scissors
- Lollipop sticks
The candy molds can be whatever shape you prefer your lollipops to come out as. Don’t have any candy molds? That’s fine, just use some scissors and get creative!
It is recommended to have all of your ingredients ready, because you will have to move fast once you begin making these marijuana lollipops.
Step 1: Prepare the saucepan
Grab a saucepan and drop your water, light corn syrup, and sugar into it. Cook that on high until the sugar dissolves. Once dissolved, drop the heat to medium for 15 minutes. Check the heat using a thermometer until it reaches 300 degrees F (148 C).
Step 2: Remove it from heat and let it cool
Once the saucepan has reached 300 degrees F, remove it from the heat. Add your drops of green food coloring, canna oil, and peppermint flavoring to the saucepan. Then, let that cool.
Step 3: Mold lollipops
When the liquid turns semi-hard, use your molds or scissors to cut it up into your desired shapes. Using a half ounce of weed in your canna oil, you can make about 14-28 pieces the size of a jolly rancher.
Step 4: Prepare the candy pieces
Take a separate pan and grease it up with some canna oil. Once its greased up, toss your pieces into that greased up pan and get them all greasy. Next, take a baking dish and cover it in your powdered sugar. Then, take the greasy candy pieces and roll them in the powdered sugar.
Step 5: Insert lollipop sticks and let it harden
When that is done, insert your lollipop sticks into each piece. Allow the candy pieces to harden. Once hardened, your lollipops are complete!
That is all it takes to make some good lollipop edibles. Each lollipop is equivalent to smoking a bowl of marijuana. The beauty of these lollipops, however, is that you do not have to smoke in order to get high.
Going back to the third benefit of lollipop edibles above, each lollipop may take around an hour to finish if you suck on it. That is also how long it will take for the effects to kick in. So, once you finish one and start on the next one, you will be able to decide if you have had enough or not.
I hope that your marijuana lollipops come out just the way you wanted them to. You can make as many as you want to in each batch, as well as in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Enjoy!
