How to make weed candy? This is a question that many people have asked themselves in the past. The answer is that it isn’t hard to do, and you can learn how by reading this blog post! In this blog post, we will discuss what ingredients are needed to make weed candy as well as the steps for making weed candy. We hope you find these instructions helpful!
What is weed candy?
Weed candy is a type of cannabis-infused hard candy. To make weed candies, you will need sugar and water to make the syrup; condensed milk for sweetness and creaminess; vanilla extract for flavor; gelatin powder or sheet as your gelling agent (which helps with texture); butter to add richness, stability, and smoothness; salt to cut bitterness from chocolate chips in some varieties of weed candy recipes; baking soda for leavening that also adds more depth of flavor. You can mix all these ingredients together to form one batch!
Combine softened cannabutter with powdered sugar until it becomes crumbly like frosting. Meanwhile, bring half a cup of water up to boil on the stovetop. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high and add sugar mixture into pot stirring vigorously until it forms a syrup that is just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon without dripping off. Add condensed milk and vanilla extract. Stir well with a rubber spatula or wooden stir stick for two minutes on low heat until smooth and creamy; then remove from stovetop immediately while you temper your gelatin in the ice water bath for five minutes (or follow package instructions). Take cannabutter frosting out of the refrigerator after 15 minutes or so if refrigerating ahead.
Why people eat weed candy?
There are many reasons why people eat weed candy. One of them is for the purpose of consuming cannabis to create a psychoactive effect and euphoria at higher doses. To some, eating weed candy may be an alternative method (for medical or recreational) as opposed to smoking it in other ways like pipes, cigarettes, joints etcetera.
Another reason is that they enjoy the taste of marijuana infused candies more than any other form such as brownies or cookies for example.
Some use weed candy because they want to avoid having smoke enter their lungs with edibles being less smelly when ingested orally compared to smoked products.
Marijuana-infused edibles can be a great way for medicating without smoking or vaping because they are easier on the lungs and often taste better. It’s also possible that people use cannabis candies as an alternative medicinal treatment in some cases instead of using other methods such as oils or tinctures; many find them more palatable too. One reason someone may eat weed candy would be if they want to avoid having smoke enter their lungs with edibles being less smelly when ingested orally compared to smoked products (which have been shown to create breathing difficulties).
Signs of eating too much weed candy
Listed below are some of the signs that someone has eaten weed candy:
- feeling faint.
- extreme dry mouth and throat or difficulty breathing; this can be a sign of edibles causing a blockage in the airway which is more common with children who have had their esophagus widened for medical reasons, but may also happen to adults as well depending on how much they’ve ingested.
- feeling excessively high without smoking anything (this only happens when people take too much) – it’s unlikely anyone will accidentally consume an overdose from eating weed candies because most recipes don’t call for adding enough THC into one snack size treat, so you would need to eat tons before running into any major issues like those listed above.
- feeling like you’re floating.
How to tell if your child has eaten weed candy
As a parent, you should be aware that weed candy is often eaten by children. If your child has consumed cannabis-infused edibles, it’s important to keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
- The slowness of movements when walking or sitting up from lying down on their side; may have trouble standing upright and keeping eyes open if they are attempting to get up off the ground without assistance. This symptom can also look like signs of intoxication normally associated with alcohol consumption such as slurred words spoken with less volume than usual and delayed reaction times to commands or questions.
- A decreased ability to stay awake and alert in their environment (reduced reflexes).
- Increased sensitivity to noise, light, or touch; children may also be overly sensitive to pain. This symptom can also look like signs of intoxication normally associated with alcohol consumption such as slurred words spoken with less volume than usual and delayed reaction times to commands or questions.
- Spinning sensation: an unpleasant feeling that the world is spinning around them when they are standing still – sometimes accompanied by a sense of nausea. Children often experience this sensation much more strongly than adults would for various reasons including developmental differences between kids’ brains and adult brains which process cannabinoids differently depending on age. The child’s level of cannabis in his or her system can also play a role.
- Righting reflex: an uncontrollable movement when the body is flipped over onto its back; this often occurs in infants and children who are not yet old enough to have developed control over their muscles, but it may be seen even in older kids as a symptom of cannabis intoxication that will resolve on its own once the high wears off.
- Incoordination: difficulty maintaining balance and muscle control – called “ataxia” by medical professionals. This side effect is most common with newer consumers because THC affects areas of the brain responsible for coordination more strongly than those parts of your nervous system related to cognitive function such as problem-solving skills, memory formation, attention span, etc.; someone who is more experienced with THC will have a much lower risk of experiencing ataxia.
- Euphoria: drowsy feeling and/or mood elevation – often mistakenly attributed to “getting high” when it’s really just the relaxation effects; many people report an increased sense of happiness and emotional openness.
- Anxiety: less common side effect that manifests as feelings of nervousness or fearfulness, which may be accompanied by rapid heart rate. Causes can include trauma from previous use events or highly stressful situations in general. This symptom usually only occurs after someone has already become tolerant to cannabis but not all consumers are afflicted.
- Increased appetite: weed has long been known for causing users to feel hungry due to its psychoactive effects on moods, emotions.
