does this work with coconut canna oil?

jdawg 14.09.2014
I made my cannabutter on sight and added it to the mixture while it was still hot, at first the butter didn't infuse. I worked my way up from low to high heat and as the sugar started melting it mixed without separating.I mixed in a koolaid pack right when I was removing from heat, poured them in a ice cube tray and stuck them in the fridge over night. They taste just like jolly ranchers with a buttery weed tint be careful with the koolaid a little goes far. I could not be happier with my product :D

I used a watermelon koolaid pack right when I was taking it off. I poured it in a ice cube tray, and they taste just like jollyranchers with a buttery weed tint. Be careful using the koolaid, a little goes far. I couldn't recommend it more ;)

hey anyone this is my first time making these lollipops so I've read all comments now I'm worried about the butter separtrating when one of u say put equal amount alcohol is it equal to water base favoring u use??

Bernie 07.08.2014
Wow I can't wait to try the lollipops

Dude, you totally f**kin' rock for posting this. I've been wanting to make these for like forever but didn't know how to do it exactly. See, I love making all kinds of sweets(cookies, brownies, cakes,etc.) but no one ever taught me how to work with melted sugar in order to make candies, ya know? So again thank you SOOOOOO much. :D

Im going to try this with my veg glycerine, as opposed to butter.

lanigirl 06.06.2014
You can add flavored oils or kool aid powder. Oils come in soooo many flavors. They work better than extract, and a little goes a LONG way!

I made this recipe with my mom who suffers from ovarian cancer for the past 9 years. Instead of making lollipops we made hard rock/crack candy and instead of pouring the liquid on a greased cookie sheet we covered the cookie sheet with confectioner sugar and then poured the liquid on that. We made a watermelon and lemon flavor and both came out really good. Not only does my mom suffer from the side effects from the chemo treatment but also the pain the cancer causes. She also suffers from insomnia while in treatment. My dad also has a herniated disc in his lower back and experiences such pain that it's hard for him to sit down or even lay down comfortably, which in turns he also suffers from insomnia. After the candy was cooled down and we broke it up into pieces, they each had a piece, for the first time in a long time my parents were able to get a good night's sleep and the effects lasted up to 5 hours, which they were able to get 5 hours of relief from their symptoms. This was really easy to make, the only thing that we will do differently next time is add a little more of the candy flavoring because the lemon had more of a "weed" taste in some pieces. The cannabutter did separate some while cooking the liquid but once the liquid was poured onto the cookie sheet it spread out evenly. I am very thankful for this website as I was able to make something with my parents that would help them get relief from their symptoms and we plan on trying out more recipes. ~ Jennifer

mine keep coming out more like taffy so someone told me to raise the temp to 300 degrees

Candyman 24.04.2014
Whitey. Start your heat at a lower temp to begin with and gradually get the mixture to medium heat. You can also try adding a little more corn syrup to the mixture to help incorporate the butter better.

Whitey 14.04.2014
So I've tried to these suckers 3 times and the butter keeps separating from the candy. I know some1 said add equal part vodka but that's not working either unless I'm not adding enough vodka. Any ideas on how correcting this?

Rufflez 26.03.2014
Try using bho instead of cannabudder. just remember to decarb it first and dont add it in untill the end when you add flavouring

MadMax514 24.03.2014
Just tried this recipe with some pretty powerful double-infused canna-butter... simply awesome! Made 25 candies and just one got me pretty hammered. If I had known earlier it was that easy I would have made some a long time ago. Thanks!

Jj. I had the same problem, I think the problem may be more butter than was called for got put in. As soon as I noticed I put a bit more sugar in while constantly stirring, and you have to be patient with the temperature, those last 30ยบ take FOREVER. Happy snacking!

kb. 12.03.2014
I Tryed adding flavor as well(2 caps full of extract), in doing so it changed the consistence and texture. Also it will melt if to warm (warmer than room temp). How our what may I do to correct issue.

cannaoilman 09.03.2014
tryed all the tricks anyone have any ideas for the oil to mix with this recipe

Hootiexmcboob 23.01.2014
Add candy flavoring. Sometimes I just use jello powder or kool-aid powder for color and flavor.

DaddyB 01.01.2014
so I just tried this recipe and everything worked great, the only "downside", if you will, is that the candy has a strong butter taste.. this is my first time making candy so I tried it with plain "non-converted" unsalted butter... is the strong butter taste due to the fact that there was no herb infusion? I obviously plan on doing this again with some actual bud butter but wanted to be sure I knew what I was doing with the candy side of things... if anyone has any insight on the stong butter taste ive mentioned I would appreciate it. I used jello as a color and flavor agent. I saw another recipe that called for vanilla extract as flavor base.. I wonder if the extract coupled with the jello mix would cover the heavy, thick butter taste (something tells me I wont mind when its the actual bud butter I taste!!) thanx people!

jj 24.12.2013
so I'm having a problem....can't seem to get the ganja butter to mix in properly with everything else (sugar, corn syrup) always seems to sift to the top, even after I've thoroughly mixed and even after I add the jello! so what happens is that when I try pouring the mixture into the lollipop molding, the butter spills out first before the other mixed ingredients...anyone else have this problem? 03.12.2013
The issue with the butter separating from the mixture is an easy fix. Butter and sugar cannot be combined without the addition of alcohol. For this reason, alcohol based flavoring agents should be used. If water based flavoring agents are used, an equal amount of vodka should be added.

Ok sound just made a couple batches of these for the first time and I wanted to add my 2 cents ...
Hard candy is very simple to make but very challenging for a beginner, or someone slower paced.
1, make sure you are using the correct type of mold.. Make sure it can hol up to heat, and preferable non stick. Make sure your molds are throughing greased.. If they do stick, pop them in the freezer for 30 mins.. Then try to pop them out like ice cubed..
2, don't always rely on ur your temperate, do the cold water test.. Simply make a bowl of Very cold water.. Drop a few drops of hot sucker in it... If it turns hard within seconds (like a hard sucker) it's done..
3, everything moves very fast once you start heating your ingredients. So make sure everything is ready to go.. Lollipops mix gets hard very quick.. Like you have a 6 min window if that.
I recommend using a funnel with a stopper for molds.
4, thicker your pan the less likely you are to burn it, and have more control. Don't try to make candy on hot or humid days. It won't get hard. Store in the freezer for longer life.

does it matter what size of pan that you use?
