Making Cannabis Taffy is much easier than you think, it just takes a little work and patience.

When making candy you really have to focus. The syrup gets extremely hot, so be careful and pay close attention while cooking.

Pulling the candy can take a little muscle work, but end result of this Cannabis treat will be worth it.

Did you know that humidity can cause the candy to absorb moisture from the air?

When humidity is absorbed the candy won’t harden like it’s supposed to. So check the local weather forecast before you start!

It’s time to get high.

What Tools Do I Need To Make Taffy?

For this recipe, you will need a candy thermometer.

This tool is super important because you will need to know the exact temperature of the candy while cooking.

The next tool you will need without a doubt is wax paper. Wrapping the candy in wax paper will help the candy keep the perfect shape and it won’t stick.
