Before you Start
If you’re a newbie to edibles, you need to know an important fact. With edibles, you’ll have to wait usually within 30-60 mins to start feeling the first manifestations, but it can take over 2 hours to reach full effects. However, when eating weed treats, like weed lollipops, the high lasts much longer than any other way of cannabis consumption.
We advise you to increase your dosage by 2.5 mg to 5 mg with each subsequent recipe until you find the dosage that provides the desired effect. Remember that you will have to wait at least 2 hours to take any additional product after your first dose.
These contents will go straight to your liver, where they will become 11-hydroxy tetrahydrocannabinol, resulting in an incredible high as it goes through it.
Now that you're aware of these essential facts, it’s about time to get started with the fun and delicious part of the guide — the recipe. Gather a few things together to make your own lollipop edibles.

- Lollipop sticks
- Lollipop molds
- Candy thermometer
- 2-3 tablespoons cannabutter or cannabis tincture
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup organic light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup clean, filtered Water
- 1 tablespoon of your favorite flavoring (Citrus, grape, lemon)
- 3 drops food coloring (optional)
Note: Cannabis tincture is a form of a cannabis extract, high in potency, that you can use to infuse candies and other fun edibles. Glycerin blended tinctures are more pleasant than the alternative alcohol tinctures. These are easily flavored and soft to swallow, while alcohol tinctures can burn the mouth.
Decarb Your Flower
In case you don’t use a cannabis tincture and prefer doing your cannabutter, follow the following steps. Although it takes time, it will definitely pay off, as you will use your favorite cannabis strains for this purpose. Moreover, you can control how much THC or CBD you want your cannabutter to have.
- Preheat your oven to 250 F.
- Grind 20 grams of weed. For this purpose, you can use a grinder or your fingers. We recommend using our famous KLIP to create a fine powder to make the process easier. Moreover, your ground weed will preserve its trichomes, enabling you to have a more powerful cannabutter.
- Spread the ground flower on a baking sheet, creating a thin layer, and take it to the oven.
- Bake for 45 minutes. Check on your ground cannabis flower from time to time and stir to allow every piece to cook evenly.
- When the flower has turned brown, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool. If it crumbles easily between your fingers, it is ready to use.
Now that you have decarboxylated your flower, you can infuse it into butter. For this purpose, heat both the decarbed flower and your oil or butter for about 30-60 minutes. We suggest using coconut oil for this particular recipe.
Step by Step
- In a saucepan, mix the sugar, corn syrup, and filtered water. Set a medium heat.
- Stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved completely.
- Once the blend starts boiling, put your candy thermometer to check the temperature until 300°F.
- Remove the saucepan from heat. Leave the thermometer in the saucepan and wait until the temperature drops to 250°F.
- Then, stir in the cannabis tincture/oil, flavoring, and food coloring. Blend until it looks homogeneous.
- Carefully pour the mix into the lollipop molds. Once you filled them, put sticks to remove the candies from the molds easily.
- Set aside and wait 30-60 minutes for the candy to cool.
- Once your weed lollipops have set and cooled down, you can start unmolding them and wrap them. Store them in an air-sealed container and enjoy!
CAUTION: If you use a tincture and it is alcohol-based, ensure that you don’t expose this to any open flames or fire sources.
How Many Lollipops Can I Eat?
Sometimes it’s difficult to calculate the potency of any homemade weed edibles. But in this guide, we have brought you an easy and quick way to know how potent your lollipop edibles are.
Each tablespoon is equal to 15 ml of cannabis tincture. Check the potency of your tincture or cannabis concentrate per milliliter. For example, if every milliliter contains 10 mg of THC, one tablespoon has 150 mg of THC. Now, all you have to do is divide the total THC amount by the number of lollipops you made.
Following this example, for each tablespoon you pour into the mixture, you’ll be adding 150 mg of THC. That said, as we used two tablespoons of tincture for this recipe, we’ll obtain 20 lollipops with 15 mg of THC each.
