Cannabis Syrup Recipe

When thinking about cannabis-based infusions, sweeteners like corn syrup are usually overlooked. The great things about infused corn syrup are its ease of preparation and the many different applications.  Infused corn syrup is a great starting point for many sweet-treats, including the increasingly popular hard candy route for those looking to ingest their cannabis in more a stealthy manner.
  • 1 oz of ground cannabis
  • 3 cups of light corn syrup
  • Airtight storage container
  • Fine mesh metal strainer
  • Cheesecloth


  1. In a medium sized saucepan, pour your corn syrup and turn on heat to low, making sure not to let it bubble up, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add ground cannabis and cook for 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once the mixture is ready, prepare metal strainer by placing cheesecloth inside the strainer and above the container, making sure to secure with your free hand.
  4. Pour mixture into double strainer on top of the container, repeating if necessary to remove all plant matter.
  5. Store cooled container in a cool and dark place for up to 6 months.

With this method do you need to decarb the cannabis or not. And how can you figure potency?
