Could you substitute the cannabutter for canna coconut oil?
The two can be used interchangeably. Coconut oil is higher in saturated fat, so it ‘holds’ more of the good THC medicine we’re trying to capture.
So you can cook it the same way with the coconut oil?
We’ve never tried it with the canna coconut oil- remember that caramels get a lot of their taste from the butter, so it may be best to stick with butter!
my caramels came out a little to soft. What can I do to make them harder>
Hi Chet: Usually when candy comes out too soft, it’s because the ingredients weren’t in the correct proportions or the candy wasn’t cooked hot enough. Are you using a candy or infrared thermometer? If this recipe gets to the proper temperature, it should be fine. Can you tell us the exact process and temperatures you used?
Does his recipe work with the blob test?
Hi Nikki: So sorry, not sure what you’re asking here. Whose recipe and what is the blob test??

Hi Bob: Unfortunately, Federal and State laws prevent cannabis from being shipped over state lines. So sorry. We wish the laws were different, but the government has their hand out and wants their cut. Disgraceful. Everyone should be allowed to grow their own plants and make their own medicine.
Are you able to travel to Ohio? I have plenty of edibles for you to purchase if able to travel. Including caramels.
How long will these last? In fridge? In freezer? Just on a shelf?
I’d say a couple weeks on the counter, a couple months in the fridge and at least 6 months in the freezer. Just don’t forget to take your dose out a few hours before you want to enjoy it! Frozen caramels are a bit tough on the mouth!
My caregiver just made these delicious caramels for me, best edible I have ever enjoyed. Thank you, weedchef.
Thanks so much- we are so pleased to hear when our recipes help those in need! Please let us know if you need any more help with anything.
Are you making your caramels at a high altitude?
No, we’re down closer to sea level. Before trying any recipes out on this site, especially at high altitude, make a dummy batch of candy without the cannabis to see if you run into any issues when making the candy.
If the caramel is soft and didn’t set after cooking and cooling, can it be recooked?
If you bring these up 250 they will become harder when cured. Be careful… after 250 they enter into what is called hardball stage. Much over 250 and you have actual hard candy,caramel flavored.
