THC Jolly Ranchers

What you'll need:

  • Light corn syrup - 1 cup
  • sugar - 2 cups
  • water - 1/2 cup
  • candy thermometer (up to 300f at least)
  • coffee grinder - (grind up jolly rancher flavoring)
  • food coloring (optional)
  • powdered sugar
  • baking sheet
  • butter or non stick spray
  • flavoring (jolly ranchers - you pick your favorite flavor! add more the better! try to keep the flavor the same)
  • cannabis tincture - the amount is up to you, depending on potency, i tend to go a bit heavvvvy because we like it to really work when smoking isn't an option!


My cannabis tincture (A.k.A Greendragon) recipe is as follow:

soak 2 oz of ground buds in a 5th of bacardi 151 or moonshine or anything above 100 proof (place inside mason jar), keep this jar protected from light and place in dark cupboard for two weeks. remove jar and strain. double boil the alcohol to concentrate the substance. I like to add this concentrate to a batch of organic honey on low and cook for 6 hours. this suspends the thc inside the natural sugars and taste yummmmy. now, you can leave it at this stage and use it as it or follow my candy recipe.

see below for candy recipe:

First step, unwrap your jolly rancher flavor of choice (add as many as you want) and grind them into a powder with your coffee grinder.



To make hard candy, add in a pot, 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of corn syrup and 1/2 cup of water.
(DO NOT add tincture, flavoring or color until later!)

heat this up material until the sugar devolves and the substance starts to boil, you want to reach a desired temp of to 302f usually a nice light golden amber brown.


if you do not have a candy thermometer you can drip some of the hot sugar liquid in a cold class of ice water and see if it hardens up to a cracking sugar. this is what you want, not gooey.


make sure you have prepared this beforehand; tincture/honey tincture (about 6oz for this recipe) also have prepared the jolly rancher powdered flavoring and food coloring. Once your material has reach temp (302f), oh at this point, BE CAREFUL! this shit is hot and will leave you with nice burns if you're not careful.


I have three flavors of powder here because i made three seprate smaller batches, again, id use only one flavor at a time.

remove 302f sugar liquid from stove and let cool for about 1 minute. you want the temp to drop just a bit from 300 to about 250 and stir in your crushed jolly rancher sugaring flavor, cannabis tincture, and food coloring and stir rapidly, trying to cool the material,melt the jolly rancher and also not damage the thc in tincture while mixing the candy thoroughly.




pour over cool aluminum baking sheet that has been buttered or sprayed with non-stick.


let cool 5-10 minutes or until pliable and you can work it with your hands. if your material gets to hard, place the metal baking sheet on a LOW burner for a few seconds to make it pliable again.


cover your hands with some powdered sugar to help it from sticking also dust your candy with some as well. spoon up a little sugar and roll it into a little bite size candy balls.


lightly coat with powdered sugar and store in the freezer!


mmmmmmm medicated jolly ranchers, or as i call them dinosaur eggs. try to made the size smaller then "1 dose" you'll be eating more then one of these i'm sure! enjoy!! -James
