    1. At that temperature, the cannabinoids will not degrade. Additionally, as soon as you take the candy mixture of the heat and add the tincture, the candy mixture go’s down in temperature very fast.

  1. Planning to use 20 gms bud and 100ml organic maple syrup. Should I lower the water or the sugar? BTW I need 3-400mg THC for a buzz.

    1. David, if you want to make maple hard candies. You don’t need the water or the sugar at all. Just maple syrup will do. Just make sure you follow the temperatures. If you want potent candies, you will need to put high dose tincture in their.

  2. How much does the candy reduce down to? Trying to figure out what size mold to use to keep dosage accurate.

  3. Can I use homemade alcohol tincture and silicone gummy molds? Would I need to grease the mold? Thank you
