How To Make Cannabis Caramels

February 8, 2024

To make these cannabis caramels we’ve given you a cannabis caramel recipe that combines the rich, buttery sweetness of classic caramels with the unique medicinal properties of cannabis. The process begins with decarboxylating your cannabis to activate its psychoactive THC components, followed by infusing it into butter, which serves as the base for your caramel. This combination is then carefully cooked with sugar, syrup, and cream to create a delicious edible that not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also provides the desired effects of cannabis.

It is important to remember that cannabis edibles can be potent and their effects last much longer than smoking or vaping- not always a bad thing! In this light I encourage you to practice properly labeling your cannabis caramels (or any cannabis product!)l. Accidental ingestion can lead to uncomfortable or even dangerous situations, so make sure your edibles are clearly marked and stored out of reach of children and labeled for clarity. Just like alcohol, if you reside in a state where cannabis is legal, it’s important to have a conversation with your kids, educating them about edibles and why they are dangerous for their consumption.

I always encourage anyone making something new, or trying it for the first time, start with a small dose to gauge your tolerance. It’s wise to wait for at least two hours before considering consuming more, as edibles can take some time to take effect. Additionally, and as I always suggest, prepare a batch of regular, non-infused caramels too, just in case you get the munchies and want to indulge without increasing the dose.

Of course, never drive or operate heavy machinery while under the influence of cannabis! Consuming cannabis responsibly is key to enjoying its benefits without risking your safety or that of others. Remember, as with all edibles, start low, go slow, and enjoy responsibly.
