marijuana candyCannabis Candy Recipe

There are a lot of people that think making cannabis candy is a difficult process, when in reality, it’s quite simple. As it usually is when making edibles, getting it right is tough. The candy not only has to be potent enough to be considered medicine but taste good as well! The candy is worthless if it doesn’t have both of those qualities. But making the perfect batch of cannabis candy treats is in the following recipe!


Candy molds
Cooking spray
Metal spoon
2/3 cups white corn syrup
1 tsp flavoring of your choice (adjust if you want but this is really the perfect amount!)
Food coloring (so they look nice, obviously!)
Candy thermometer
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
9.5 grams of dry powdered hash


First things first, spray the candy molds with cooking spray so that the mix doesn’t stick when you get to the step that requires it. Put the sugar and corn syrup together in a pot and put it on high heat until the mix begins to boil. Reduce the heat to low medium and keep an eye on the temperature. Once the temp hits 300, remove the heat and add in the hash and food coloring. Stir this mix vigorously. You need to make sure that the hash has been completely mixed in. About a minute should do it because the mix will start to harden soon after that. Add your candy mix in to the molds. You can either make them just candies or you can add in sticks to make them lollipops!

Let the mix harden in the mold and then remove and wrap them. This recipe will give you about 40 candies. You can always add in more hash but be sure that that’s the form of cannabis that you use. Kief could also be used in this recipe if you have enough of it. These candies last a good amount of time, about 2 to 3 hours on an empty stomach and an hour after a meal. No one should be afraid to make cannabis candy , especially when it’s such a benefit to those who are always on the go and enjoy eating their weed rather than smoking it. They’re very discreet but don’t let anyone sneak one behind your back!

    thanks for the info jolly ranchers will have a whole new meaning

    • CannaCandies:D

      That’s what I’m sayin:D

  • Ruby M. Tuesday

    only thing that makes this not as good a medicine as it could be is the corn syrup, just sayin’ :/

  • Kore Walters

    This should more appropriately be called hash candy.

    @Ruby M Tuesday – Kat Smiles’ (BadKittySmiles) hash and canna candy recipes don’t contain corn syrup, if you google it she shows how to make the glucose needed to produce good candy using common sugar and citrus instead of corn, and she also shares how to make the candies UV reactive with entirely food grade ingredients so they are healthy, for a sugar candy ha, and they GLOW!! which is really fun for the holidays. Not only that, she also shares how to decarboxylate which is needed so your cannabinoids are actually active and will work, and she shares how to make the cannabinoids more bioavailable and readily absorbed, since edibles and medical candies should be made with oil even if hash is used to make the oil. Since following those tutorials for medibles I’ve never looked back, you can find her recipes on grass city and at MedicalGradeCannabisOil dot com and BadKatsCannaPharm dot com.

      Thank you..this is what I’ve been looking for…not all this arguing bull shit.

      • Delaine Martindale

        I was kind of thinking these people must not be eating good stuff. Isn’t it supposed to mellow you out?

  • dude

    First, how the hell do you find “dry powdered hash”?
    I don’t even know what that is. Secondly, 9.5 grams of weed is crazy expensive. Probably $150.

    • The Street Herbalist

      get on the corner youll make that in a day

    • drgreenthumbs

      lol first dry powdered hash is just regular cold water hash
      second where the fuck are you living and paying 150 dollars for 9.5
      i get an ounce for less than that

      • chronicog

        thats the problem with lowballers out there , shrinking the price of real chronic to compete with walmart prices, good smoke should cost 300 an oz, but then cut throats come in and screw the industry up

        • Peter J. Lord

          Lowballers?? It’s douchebags like yourself keeping the price up on shit rather than helping destroy the importation of shwag from Mexico. Stupid money grubbing cunts.

          This is one of the stupidest things i hear from far to many yuppie stoners. When i lived in northern ohio i could get an ounce of sticky hairy crystal covered one hitter quiter for $125. In houston, halfway decent mexican weed is $25 an ounce (the shit mexican is for cooking and like $15 an ounce) good high end weed tops out around $100 to $150 and good to me is 20% + THC. We’re talking about a plant, that you can grow a 1.25-1.5 pound yield with 6 plants in 2 months if you know what you’re doing with an investment of less then $500 in an area the size of a small dresser. That anyone has to pay anything for bud is extremely depressing to me.

          • Ben

            Your a fucking liar, I’m in north east ohio, and theres no way you get a zip for 100-150. Zips are 2-3 all day. and the only way your getting 1 for 2 is if you buy a pound plus.

          • kyle

            its called connections

          • Singerar

            Well then, I say go write the American Cannibis growers a letter and tell them no one should pay for their well tended weed, they should just give it away. I’d LOVE to see their response. If folks want it for free…they should be growing it themselves. Even THEN, it’s not free. Maintenance isn’t free and it’s NOT easy to grow. I’m not sure where you think you can get free weed unless a good friend of yours is just giving his/her home grown high end stash away.

        • jayman

          no you are screwing the industry by gouging it should be cheap or free you ass!!!

          • TherealGesus

            nothing is free jayman. Haven’t figured that out yet, don’t worry someday you will.

          • Singerar

            If you want “cheap” or “free” you’ll have to grow your own. Oh wait…you wouldn’t be able to pay for the organic maintenance on your own plant because it DOES take dollar to grow decent chronic. Do you think only Millioniares grow weed so they can just GIVE IT away? Who taught you economics? If you want “cheap” stick with the Mexican shit which you would have no idea how or where it’s grown. Yeah, stick with that $25 per oz.! Me? I’ll pay for the Organic and well tended bud or edibles which have been made in a kitchen according to FDA standards. “Free weed” is a idiotic statement. Seriously, who’s going to pay the growers for your greedy little self. The Government? You guys crack me up!

          • Louis Guertin

            I did it for about $25 (Canadian) per plant with a yield of about 150g per plant. And nobody has complained so far.

          • Trish

            FREE??? Hahahahaha!!!! SMH!

      • budsman

        I california it goes about 100 an oz.

        • Sara

          Yup, dank for $100. an ounce all day in Cali.

      • Maria Bendoni

        Wow! Where are you living that YOU can get an oz for $150??? Is it good weed? I’m in Boston, so it’s pretty damn expensive if you want medicinal quality

  • kevin

    could a” tincture” be used in sub of powdered hash?

    • Rhonda Moore

      What is Tincture? It is mentioned in a lot of recipes I have been looking at. My Husband has ALS and he had a piece of Candy and he was GREAT for 24hrs…

  • marsha

    When do you add the water and flavoring:)

  • chronicog

    i also used tincture , keif, and simpson oil, i think oil and tincture make the stronger candys , if yur into being couch locked for a few hours , but great to medicate about a hour before bed , makes for a good deep sleep

  • ddavel544

    Well, I better watch what I eat at parties from now on. With my heart condition, this would kill me.

    • FUK US

      probly help

  • ladybutterfly

    OK, folks, here is a cannabis hard candy/lollipops recipe that I came across a while back. Don’t remember where I got the recipe, but I’ve tried this & it works for me.
    2 cups sugar, 1 cup light corn syrup; 1 cup water; 1-2 oz marijuana tincture; candy or lollipop molds. choice of color & flavoring. Add sugar, syrup & water to a pot on stove over medium heat. Stir until dissolved & bring to a boil. Bring to 300 on candy thermometer & slowly stir in color & flavorings. Turn off heat & as quickly as possible stir in marijuana tincture. Pour into molds. This liquid will quickly turn to solid form, so move as quickly as possible. If you don’t have molds you can use a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray to spread your candy out onto. Worked well for me since I only have one candy mold.

  • Key Play

    There is no way you can say this recipe is good if it has corn syrup in it, Do some research and keep it healthy

    • kyle

      Not all ppl give 2 fucks on whether something is healthy or not its called being active and not a lazy ass couch potato and you don’t have to worry about if something is healthy or not because unhealthy food is the bombast food!!!

  • joshernaut

    what if you want to use an oil extraction in the candies, basically was thinking shatter

  • Daniel DeWayne Rozell

    up all I fn am paying 140 just for a half help a brow out

    • Maria Bendoni

      I wish I could get a 1/2oz for $140. Im guessing it cant be medicinal quality at that price…unless you really know someone. Lucky guy, you are

      • atheistlibertariancriminalassh

        i pay the same at my local dispensary, with percentages into the twenties. people who say they cannot produce (and profit) at these rates are, i suspect, gouging.

  • Why

    used 10 grams hash they came out perfect thanks

    • Bd

      Did u use any water?

  • clean smoke

    I just have to make a comment ! I am a caregiver- it is obvious that anyone who thinks cannabis should be cheap or free does not know the process- in today’s market, people want clean, high end cannabis- with lab testing- to grow what the public demands costs $100.’s- per plant- from clone to packaging – if you are buying it off the street so to speak- you don’t know what your getting- let’s use outside cannabis for an example- let’s say it was grown here in the US- we would be able to add even more bad stuff if it comes from another country- think about it- we know here there is acid rain- planes that fly overhead and spray for god only knows what- air pollution from big industries- etc.-do I have to even mention the bugs, animals, how about bird poop, and bud rot- I know of one occasion where worms were found all through the buds- you may not care about what your putting in your body now- but, trust me, when you are older and your health is declining- you WILL wish you had cared- we grow in a controlled environment- water and air is purified, temps are controlled,no chemicals are used, etc. – than lab test are done $- before we package it- this cost a great deal of money- and that does not include, paying for taxes, licenses, here it cost $300. just to register one patient- insurance, etc. and these have to be renewed yearly- so the next time you bitch about the cost of an oz, you may want to think of these things- or maybe you could buy a seed- throw it in a pot of soil and see what you get !!!!!!!

    • Amy Mellen

      Very well said!

    • Louis Guertin

      I’ve grown for years; if you have good soil, good organic nutrients, clean water, you will get good Ganj.

  • BlueJayne

    Where does the WATER in the recipe come in??? (I’m thinking with the corn syrup & sugar) lol. Ooops! All this drama about prices and stuff and no one caught the goof up about the water! Calm down people & be kind.

    • Kay

      Actually, to make candy, you don’t need much water – enough to get the sugar going? Especially when adding fat… You want it to seize up right?
      Water in this case should only be added at the end if the butter/oil you used separates from the sugar… If you use water in this recipe if it doesn’t need it… Ummm they will not seize up and get hard/hold their shape.

      Using lethicin (very small qty, tasteless and a binding agent but is made of soy…) in the base or even at the end would help the texture.

      • Kay

        …any sugar syrup of the same consistency of corn syrup… (Maple probably won’t work.. It does tend to burn easily) glucose? Either way … Before you touch either wear gloves sprayed with cooking oil – or just spray your hand… It comes of easy enough with hot water though. Happy candy making

  • Why

    BlueJanye I picked up on that right away been making hash candy for years but always look at others recipes never know if you find a better one

  • Why

    also not mentioned is decarb what you use

    • Mike

      You don’t need to decarbolize the cannabis if you add it directly into the candy.

      • test

        Good god you’re so wrong. Please stop posting false information.

      • Maria Bendoni

        Thats not true. You have GOT to decarboxylate to bring out the psychoactive qualities in the THC

  • sporty

    would this recipe work if use cannabis corn syrup and leave out the hash

    • Maria Bendoni

      Thats what I was thinking. Just make the cannabis corn syrup and use it in all the candy recipes. They all call for corn syrup


      • Val

        does corn syrup harden up when it’s cooked? I think you need the sugar for that.

  • Maria Bendoni

    Are these like gummies or are they hard candies?

    • Lori Powell

      these are hard candies, gummies use some kind some sort of gelatin, or gelling igerdient.

  • Scott Day

    It says water in the ingredients but doesn’t say when to use it

    • Val

      usually you dissolve the sugar in the water on the stove top, then add other ingredients, and enjoy!

  • C4

    If you use 9.5 g’s should one candy fuck you up?

  • Adam Polk

    How much oil and suckers could I produce with a half oz of medical using green dragon tincture?

  • Odin

    Can marijuana bud be used in this recepie or does it need to be hash?

  • Mellow Fellow Candies

    If you proceed as high as 320 degrees you will now have hard candy. You can tell when you have it right as it will appear shiny and be less sticky to the touch. The lower temperature the more pliable your end product will be. At 300 you will be able to cleanly divide your medicine based on your needs. 320 and your gonna be using the entire dose.
    The water is used to facilitate a full mix with your corn syrup and sugar. The water evaporates as your candy reaches temp. Do not rush your mix and make sure to not allow ANY sugar that crystallizes above your boiling melted sugar.
    Now, I’ve spent many hours producing solid candies using shatter and kief may be the next choice. If your using 9.5 grams per 40 candies your looking at around 240mg’s per unit (candy). That’s a giant dosing if you really think about it. No raw bud will not work. You need a product that is soliable and will distribute evenly which is important for dosing.
