There are plenty of ways to consume cannabis, and one way that’s becoming popular is cannabis sugar. It’s a great alternative for sweetener in coffee or tea, or to use when baking as a replacement for traditional granulated sugar. It’s also pretty easy to work into any diet, as it can help replace cannabutter and canna-oil in some recipes. Cannasugar can also be used to treat hangovers, acid reflux, and soothing chronic pains and aches. Learning how to make canna sugar isn’t too hard! We’re here to help guide you with a few steps
What is Cannabis Sugar?
Cannabis sugar is sugar that’s been infused with, you guessed it - cannabis. After a little decarboxylation, a soak in some grain alcohol, and a trip to the oven, you’ll have cannabis sugar in no time. It’s a great way to turn any meal into something that’ll bring you a little bit more happiness. Canna sugar, weed sugar, THC sugar, happy sugar, whatever you want to call it, it’s something you’ll be happy to have!
What to Know Before You Start
Since you’re using alcohol (which is flammable) and putting it in the oven, it can be a bit dangerous. Always keep the heat low and keep an eye on it at all times. If it helps, wait a little longer for the alcohol to evaporate before you pop it in the oven.
Stirring helps the alcohol evaporate from the sugar. The more you stir, the more it evaporates.
A Little Goes a Long Way
Don’t waste your bud by adding too much cannabis to the recipe because it may be stronger than you intended. Your tolerance may be different when you consume edibles rather than smoking, so keep that in mind when you’re making your measurements.
Don’t Forget to Decarboxylate
Decarboxylation refers to a chemical process that involves the cannabinoid THCA converting to THC when marijuana is heated up. This happens instantly when smoking cannabis, but decarboxylation is required ahead of time for it to have the desired effects when making edibles.
