How to Make Jolly Rancher Marijuana Edibles

How to Make Jolly Rancher Marijuana Edibles

One of the most popular categories of marijuana edibles are marijuana hard candies such as marijuana Jolly Ranchers. The appeal is quite apparent: You get a high that’s as strong and long-lasting as normal edibles, but get to enjoy a deliciously sweet hard candy in the process.

Some also like the fact that given you consume a Jolly Rancher over the course of 10-25 minutes and not within a couple minutes like a small-to-medium marijuana cookie, the high has an even more gradual onset than standard edibles.

Luckily, making marijuana Jolly Ranchers isn’t near as difficult as you might think. It also doesn’t take near as long – or take near as much cannabis – as you may think.

All that said, let’s cut to the chase and tell you how to make it!

Marijuana Jolly Rancher Recipe

There are two primary ways you can make marijuana-infused Jolly Ranchers. One is to use actual Jolly Ranchers, and one involves making your own jolly ranchers using ingredients like corn syrup.

In this article, we’ll cover both.

1. Marijuana Jolly Ranchers Using Real Jolly Ranchers

Here is how to make marijuana Jolly Ranchers using real Jolly Ranchers (though obviously similar off-brand versions of the candy would also work):

Ingredients:

– A standard sized bag of Jolly Ranchers (3.8oz bag)

– A quarter cup of water

– 2-4 tablespoons of marijuana tincture

Steps:

– Using a coffee grinder or something similar like a really strong blender, grind up the Jolly Ranchers until they’re broken into very small pieces. I recommend using just 1 color at a time otherwise you can end up with some weird color mixtures, some that aren’t all that appetizing.

– Heat the Jolly Ranchers in the water on the stove in a pot over medium-high heat until the candy has mixed evenly with the water and liquefied

– Remove from the heat and mix in the marijuana tincture. For lightly potent marijuana Jolly Ranchers use around 2 tablespoons of moderately potent tincture, and ad more depending on how potent you’d like it to be

– Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet and allow it to harden or place into a small rubber ice tray. Let cool.

– Break into smaller pieces as you see fit

This is really the easiest way to make an infused cannabis Jolly Rancher candy that gives you the most control in terms of texture. Also the flavor will be nearly identical to the original albeit slightly diluted due to the water added.

2. Marijuana Jolly Ranchers Using Homemade Jolly Ranchers

This is more like creating the Jolly Ranchers texture from scratch however it will be difficult to replicate the flavor of the standard candy.

Ingredients:

– 2 cups of sugar

– 2/3rd cups of light corn syrup

What to do:

– Mix together all of the ingredients other than the flavoring

– Heat in a pot on a stove (stirring often) for 6-8 minutes

– Remove the stove and add in the flavoring (see below)

– Pour the mixture onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and place it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. If you want to get the right shape, consider using a small rubber ice cube tray.

– Remove from the freezer and break it into small pieces as you see fit

Flavoring

For flavoring, we recommend LorAnn brand and in terms of quantity it all depends on personal preference. Try one of these:
