    Why You’ll Love Making Cannabis Sugar


    Not only is it easy to make, it only requires two ingredients! You’ll need refined, granulated sugar and weed tincture.

    Cannabis sugar is shelf-stable when stored in a dark, dry place and can be used as a sugar replacement in any recipe imaginable.

    And yes, you can use a sugar alternative like monk fruit if you like, but results vary, so we recommend using plain old granulated sugar for this recipe. Once you get this licked, you can start experimenting.

    Cannabis Chef Tips & Tricks

    Before getting started, you want to ensure you have everything you need, including patience! They say love is always the secret ingredient, but when you’re making edibles, it’s 100% patience.

    You’re going to want to make sure:

    1. That you have cannabis tincture – it’s essential to this recipe.
    2. That you use an alcohol-based tincture here, or it won’t work
    3. Sugar – white granulated is the best option, but you could try brown sugar, coconut sugar, or monk fruit sweetener.

    I would not recommend using powdered sugars or Splenda – it just won’t work.

    Do I Have To Decarb?


    Yes! Always yes. Dried cannabis flowers do not have THC or CBD – they have THCA and CBDA – which is non-intoxicating and won’t get you high.

    When you heat the flower evenly ( remember: heat it to eat it), the conversion begins, and that’s what decarboxylation is.

    If you skip this process, you won’t get high, and there’s no way to get around this step!
