So, grab yourself a pan and some bud, and learn about cannabis-infused maple syrup candies!
How to Make Cannabis-Infused Maple Syrup Candies
To start out, you need a lot of different supplies such as pans, grinders, crock pots, molds, etc. You need to prepare quite a bit to make these candies and a lot of attention is needed; after all, it is candy making and a simple error could send your confections to File 13 (aka – the trash can).
Being sure to watch the temperature is perhaps the most important step of making good cannabis-infused maple candy, as you need to have a hard crack (148 degrees C or 300 F) to have a proper lollipop-like hard candy. If you cook the substance for too little time, they won’t form that nice hard crack, and you’ll end up with a syrupy and caramel-like substance (which probably wouldn’t be too bad either, but it’s simply not the goal in this case). Cook it too long, however, and it can burn, creating a super bitter and blackened taste which you definitely don’t want.
If you do manage to get the sugar syrup mixture just right, the next step is to put them in either molds – or as some people have tried, in the snow, to instantly cool them and create a lollipop. This is a bit of a problem if you don’t live in a snowy area, so we don’t think that this is the best way to go about it (not to mention a bit unsanitary), but lollipop molds can be bought for pretty cheap so this is a much better option in our opinion. You can even top your pops off with additional flavors such as sugar topping or even salt for a more unique flavor combination. The sweetness of the maple syrup in combination with the salt and the grassy flavor of the dry herb is simply divine.
Although a bit complicated to make and requiring a lot of attention throughout the process, these candies overall make for a very personalized and delicious treat. You can use any strain of cannabis that you’d like, so you can change the flavor profile, THC levels, and CBD levels at a whim. We simply adored these maple syrup infused cannabis candies. They are long-lasting and satisfying and we couldn’t seem to get enough of them after having tested them out ourselves.
So, try it out for yourself and see just how good a candy maker you are. By being able to change the cannabis and add any personal touches, you can be your own Willy Wonka in your very own kitchen. These candies are a fun and creative way to combine cannabis and an old-time favorite – maple syrup – that you and your friends will be sure to enjoy. Overall, these candies are a great way to get your CBD and THC through a fun little snack.
