THC infused candy edibles

THC infused candy edibles are the ultimate munchie for stoners to indulge in. Whether you prefer sugary lollipops, the tangy taste of gummy bears or the decadent, moist texture of chocolate, these tasty treats offer many medical benefits and are the perfect marijuana replacement for people who don’t enjoy smoking. You’ve probably purchased some candy online before, or you may have even tickled your taste buds at your local dispensary, but have you ever thought of making your own THC infused candy edibles? Here are two simple weed candy recipes that will be sure to get you inspired.

Choose your strain

Different strains of weed have different levels of THC, so before you mix your green with honey and sugar be sure to pick a strain that offers the soothing effects that you are looking for. Cannabis sativa is good way to relieve anxiety, treat chronic pain and increase your focus and creativity throughout the day, while cannabis indica has the ability to increase your mental relaxation, decrease pain and nausea, increase your appetite (to eat all the munchies) and also is known to relax your muscles. Hybrid strains have the ability to offer you the best of both worlds. Choosing the right strain for you is really important when you are making your own THC infused candy edibles.
