CANDIES

What are marijuana candies?

The name «candy» is frequently used to describe any sugar-based sweets infused with cannabis. The term might refer to different groups of edibles: chocolate bars, gummies and baked goods as well. In this article, «candy» means simply a hard candy.

Candies come in a lot of varieties of different size, color and flavor. The only thing they all have in common is the presence of active cannabinoids within the product. The cannabinoid content in all the commercial candies are lab tested and specified on the label.

Eating candies or smoking: key differences

Candies belong to the category of edibles — marijuana products that contain cannabis. Though the primary ingredient is the same, consuming marijuana in its edible form has many differences from smoking. The main distinctions are the following:

  1. Instant vs Delayed effect When you smoke weed, you get high within minutes, so you can evaluate the strength immediately. With edibles, it is different because of the other way of absorption. They need to get digested and metabolized by the liver and it takes time, up to 3 hours in some cases. Here is the main problem with all edibles — consumers expect them to work directly after they are eaten, and having experienced nothing, they just take more and more. Such actions result in heavy intoxications so make sure to play by the rules.

  2. Working time Candies are very much appreciated by medical users because once they start working, the effects are felt for hours. Unlike smoking, medications taken in oral form can last up to 6 hours. Get ready and make sure you have enough time for a try.

  3. Focus on eating With smoking, it does not matter how long ago you had your meal. With candies, there is a principal difference. As cannabis oil is hard to digest, it is recommended that it is not taken on the empty stomach. Make sure you eat well before you try cannabis delicacies.

  4. Сompatibility with alcohol There is a popular practice to smoke and drink at the same time. Never try it with cannabis candies if you do not want to get dizziness, nausea or panic attack.

How to determine the right dosage?

The popular mistake that newbies make is to ask an experienced user about the recommended dosage. For the high tolerance consumer, the limit might be even 150 mg at a time while a newcomer will hardly stand 20 mg.

The fact is that the recommended dose depends much on the individual: on his age, gender, health and personal tolerance level. To predict the effect of the certain dose on the body is impossible, so it is best to start with the minimal portion and increase it afterwards.

For a first try, the recommended dosage is 5 mg. Evaluate the effect in 2-3 hours and increase the cannabinoid amount for 5-10 mg every new try, if necessary. This way, you will be able to identify the exact portion necessary to get the desired effect.

Ways of absorption

Most edibles are absorbed via the digestive system. Active components pass through your stomach and liver and get metabolized. This way of absorption is very specific: it takes hours to digest the cannabis oil but the effect is more long-lasting.

However, this is not the only way. With chewable sweets and candies, there is a way to get the desired effect much faster. It is called a sublingual absorption — a method that supposes dissolving the candy under the tongue. There are dense mucosal membranes placed under the tongue and right next to the cheeks. Due to these membranes, the cannabinoids get absorbed into the bloodstream. That is why if you need to speed up the effect — just suck your candy long enough.

Types of candies

Hard candies found on dispensaries` shelves are not all alike. Commercial candy products are distinguished by:

  1. the cannabinoid content. Always check for the prominent cannabinoid when you are going to buy some cannabis candies. THC will make you intoxicated, and CBD will help to get calm and release from pain. If you are looking for a balance between a reasonable high and therapeutic effects, consider buying candies that are based on a mix of these two active components.

  2. serving. You can either choose separate bite-sized candies or buy a multi-serving. In the second case, you need to calculate how much cannabinoid content there is in one candy (sometimes, this information is stated on the label, like: 10 pieces, 5 mg each).

  3. flavor. The weed taste and aroma are not always appreciated in edibles that is why most producers try to mask it by adding numerous flavors. Selecting the best fit for you, consider not only your taste, but also the character of additives used. Natural terpenes and colorants certainly have preference over the artificial ones.

Marijuana candy recipe

Cooking cannabis candy is easy if you know what to do. The only thing that puzzles all novice users is how to get a cannabis tincture. That is why the whole recipe will be divided by two parts: preparing a tincture and making lollipops.

Part 1. Preparing a cannabis tincture.

What exactly is a tincture? It is the extract that consists of the cannabinoid component together with the other valuable plant components.

Process:

  1. Grind your weed. You can choose either Indica or Sativa flower depending on the effect you need.

  2. Decarboxylate cannabis. Without decarboxylation, the cannabinoid will not be activated. It will still have its therapeutic effects but without any psychoactive high. To decarboxylate, put your weed in a thin layer on a parchment paper and heat at 230-260 degrees Fahrenheit for about half an hour.

  3. Prepare a jar with the alcohol solvent. Add your cannabis and let the whole mixture stay from two to four weeks.

  4. Use a cheesecloth to separate the plant material. The remaining liquid is the tincture you need.

  5. Evaporate alcohol if you want to make the tincture stronger (optional).

Now when your tincture is ready, you can start making candies (or other cannabis sweets as well). The most popular choice is lollipops. Here is a recipe for them:

What you need:

  • cannabis tincture;

  • molds for lollipops;

  • lollipop sticks;

  • food thermometer;

  • 1 cup of sugar;

  • 0.5 cup of corn syrup;

  • 0.25 cup of water;

  • orange or lemon juice for flavor.

Process:

  1. Mix sugar, corn syrup and water. Heat to minimal temperatures and stir until all the sugar dissolves.

  2. Increase the heat until the temperature of the substance reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. Take the saucepan from the heat and wait till the candy liquid cools down to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. Add cannabis tincture and juice. Be sure there is no fire nearby (alcohol in the tincture is flammable). Stir intensively to make sure all cannabis is evenly distributed.

  5. Pour the candy liquid into the molds and put sticks to it.

  6. Cool candies for half an hour.

To calculate the potency of each lollipop, divide the amount of cannabis tincture (in mg) by the number of candies.

Law on cannabis candies

Not all the cannabis sweets are permitted by the law. There is a huge difference between a cannabis chocolate with special marijuana marking and candies that look just like kids` favorites.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of cases when children or unsuspecting people mistakenly take cannabis candies instead of the ordinary ones. The outcomes are always the same: shock, hospital treatment, overdose symptoms (paranoia, psychosis, hallucinations). Colored packing and similarity to popular market products make cannabis candies highly attractive for ignorant people. The frequency of such cases caused the governmental reaction in a number of states.

Colorado was the first to react. In 2016, it changed its law on edibles, requiring that all marijuana candies include the THC mark and have unattractive packing. Moreover, candies no longer have the right to be called candies, because this name is not relevant to reality where cannabis is rather a drug than a candy component.

The next state that prohibited cannabis candies was Washington. In 2018, it banned the sales of all gummies and candies within the state. Moreover, the law included strict requirements for all edibles available in the market: special marking, common shape, no words like «candy» or «sweets». In the other words, the only products left in the market were those, which could not be mistaken for ordinary sweets. Such policy let the state to avoid repetitions of similar occasions with negative health consequences for children or unsuspecting adults.

Homemade or commercial candies: which one to choose?

This is not the question that has the unambiguous answer. Everything depends on who is the producer of homemade edibles. One thing is when you make candies yourself and the other is when you buy homemade cannabis sweets from a «trusted» supplier.

Commercial products` main advantage is that they have the clear dosage confirmed by testing labs. All the ingredients are listed on the label and you know what you get. The only problem with such sweets is the presence of undesirable additives and chemicals used to enhance taste and aroma of the product.

As for homemade candies, they have undeniable preference only in case you have a total control of the production process, so you know exactly how much marijuana component was taken, which way the tincture was made, and what ingredients were added. Purchasing cannabis candies from someone else, you cannot be sure in the quality, cannabinoid content and possible outcomes after consumption, so it is recommended to tilt toward the commercial market products.
