What should I know before cooking cannabis-infused candy?
If you’re a newbie with any weed lollipops recipe then you should consider that the effect of edibles is quite different from smoking or vaping marijuana. The biggest disadvantage is that you’re to wait for the effects much longer in comparison with smoking weed, for instance. Yet, when eating weed, the high lasts much longer compared to any other way of cannabis consumption.
Besides that, when it comes to edible lollipop recipes, you should check if all the needed ingredients are at your hand prior to starting cooking. Thus, the major of cannabis lollipop recipes require decarboxylated cannabis concentrate (CO2 extract, hash, etc.) and/or cannabis tincture. The latter is needed for this weed lollipops recipe by the way.

Temperature used to make cannabis infused lollipops
The tricky part with making marijuana infused lollipops is that you have to let it cool down to about 250 degrees Fahrenheit so you don’t lose out on all of the incredible healing compounds in your cannabis tincture. This makes it a little messier to deal with since the liquid candy has already cooled and gets a bit sticky around this temperature.
You’ll probably have little hard candy trails all over your molds and counter when all is said and done. The upside is that you can just wait until it hardens and eat it. I didn’t have any issues with stubborn hard candy that I couldn’t pry off, but you’ll want to make sure that you work on non-stick surfaces. If you’re worried about making a mess, just lay down a sheet of parchment paper underneath your candy or lollipop molds.
Cannabis infused lollipop molds
It’s all in the mold. You can use your gummy bear molds from making Cannabis Gummies, or you can find molds specifically for hard candy making here. I prefer working with silicon since it’s reusable and it’s easy to remove your candy from silicon molds, but player’s choice!
You’ll have to make a cannabis tincture first or use decarboxylated hash (I haven’t tried this yet, but will update this post as soon as I do). Be careful when using alcohol-based tincture and make sure you are far away from your heat source when stirring it into your candy mixture. Because… Booze + Heat = Fire.
