Cannabis sugar is just that — it’s sugar that’s been infused with cannabis after a quick soak in grain alcohol and a short trip to the oven. It is especially versatile. It can be used as a sweetener in cookies, a dynamite bowl of wake-and-bake oatmeal, or spooned into a cup of coffee at any time of the day. You can also use it to make cannabis caramel. Canna sugar is special because you can add it to any type of drink due to dissolving in liquids, unlike other types of infused products which only dissolve in fatty liquids.

Wherever you like to add sugar, spice, and make absolutely everything nice, cannabis sugar can be there.

If you have ever felt limited by the need to add butter to your recipes, then cannasugar is the ingredient for you.

The Basics of Cooking with Cannabis

Cannabis cooking does not have to be complicated. However, there are a couple of things you need to know before beginning.

1. All forms of cooking edibles involve decarboxylating the weed. This means baking the raw cannabis buds at low heat for about 35 minutes to activate the cannabinoids. Make sure you factor the decarboxylating time into your creation of cannasugar.

2. A little goes a long way with edibles. Don’t waste money by adding too much cannabis to the recipe, as you may find that it’s stronger than you intended. You can use our guide to calculating edible strength to help you, but be aware that you might experience a stronger high with edibles than via smoking.

3. Cannabinoids can degrade at high temperatures. This seems counterproductive given that most people smoke marijuana. Remember that high heat for prolonged time periods can degrade THC into CBN, ruining your chances of a high. Try to reduce the cooking time when roasting or baking edibles.

Weed sugar is the perfect way to liven up any of your favorite sweet recipes. Here’s how to make cannabis sugar at home.


*3 grams cannabis

*120ml high-proof alcohol, such as Everclear

*100g granulated sugar

4 simple methods

1.Roughly grind/chop your weed to a coarse consistency. Spread it out on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake at 120°C/250°F for 35-40 minutes. Make sure your temperature never exceeds this limit.

2.Reduce the oven heat to 93°C/200°F. Transfer your decarboxylated weed to a jar and cover with alcohol. Screw the lid on the jar, making sure it is tight and secure.

3.Shake the jar every 5 minutes for 20 minutes total. Strain the liquid through some cheesecloth into a clean bowl. Discard the solid plant matter.

4.Mix sugar into the strained alcohol solution. Spread evenly into a glass baking dish. Bake at 93°C/200°F, stirring regularly until the alcohol has evaporated and the sugar has a golden colour.


Stay safe: Always make sure you’re working in a ventilated area when heating alcohol. Never close the oven door and keep all windows open and consider placing a fan near your oven, facing the window!

Keep the oven door open anytime your sugar is inside. We’re not cooking is so much as drying it out!

Pro Tips When Making Cannasugar

Remember, Ethanol vapors are extremely flammable and are heavier than air. Avoid sources of ignition. Using a gas oven is not recommended due to the potential for fire or explosion.

A note on grinding: grinding your flower finely will produce a much greener-looking and tasting sugar. To avoid this, simply break the buds apart with your fingers into pea-sized pieces.

Save the leftover buds! There are still some cannabinoids present in them. Let them air dry and they can be used for infusing coconut oil, or simply grind them up and put into gelcaps for consumption.


3.5gr of cannabis containing 25% THC will yield approximately 800mg of THC in your final product. This recipe will yield about 25-30 teaspoons of sugar, giving it an average THC content of approximately 20-25mg per tsp. Make sure you measure your batch to see exactly how much you have before performing the potency calculation.

You can use weed sugar like you would regular sugar. Here are some ideas on how to use cannabis sugar in your kitchen:

-Stir into coffee or your favorite tea

-Sweeten your morning porridge

-Make cannabis-infused syrup for cocktails and drinks

-Mix it with cinnamon and sprinkle on donuts or churros

-Use it to replace sugar in your favorite dessert recipes

Storage Instruction

Once your cannabis sugar is made, you want to ensure you keep it as dry as possible. An airtight mason jar or even a ziplock bag will work as long as it's sealed properly.

Use The Right Dish

Remember with this recipe, the more surface area exposed to the air, the faster the alcohol will evaporate off.

This means you want a bigger container that can have a shallow amount of sugar when filled.

I've seen suggestions to put foil or parchment paper on a baking sheet but found this was way too messy, especially when stirring the sugar frequently.

Stir The Sugar Often

The more often you can stir your cannabis sugar, the more you will be exposing the alcohol to the air for it to evaporate.

We used a small silicone spatula to stir the sugar and tried to stir it as often as possible, every few hours, at least 4-5 times per day.

If you do not stir the sugar enough, it will harden together on itself and create a hard chunk of sugar. If this happens, you can use the food processor or a ziplock bag and a rolling pin to break it back up into granules again.

How much cannabis sugar should you use?

There are 48 teaspoons of sugar in a cup. The amount of THC the marijuana sugar contains depends mainly on the potency of the cannabis in question.

For instance, 3 grams of a strain with 20% THC, should contain about 600 mg of THC. Divided by 48, this would be 12.5 milligrams of THC per teaspoon. Most people start with a dose of 5 mg of THC, although everyone’s tolerance is different.

Regardless of the potency of your cannabis, consider using a half teaspoon or less of weed sugar your first time until you know how strong it is and how it affects you. You can always take more next time.

The Easiest Ways to Make Cannabis Butter

Cannabis butter is typically made using one of three different methods:


-double boiler

-slow cooker

All of the methods involve heating the melted butter with the decarbed cannabis, before straining it.

To make cannabutter, you’ll need the following ingredients:

-7-14 grams of ground, decarboxylated cannabis

-2 sticks of butter


-Storage container

If using a crockpot, fill it about halfway with water, and let it heat to 160-190°F (70-90°C). Put the butter in mason jars, add the decarbed cannabis to the jars and cover. Place the jars in the water in the crock pot and seal th epot and cook for at least two hours. Remove the jars and let the mix cool before stringing it through a cheesecloth into a container.

In a saucepan, simmer a cup of water and a cup of butter until the butter melts and then add the cannabis and stir well. Simmer for 2-3 hours at around 160-180°F (70-80°C). Do not let the mixture come to a boil and after 2-3 hours, remove it from the heat and then strain it after it has cooled.

In a slow cooker, simply set the temperature to 160-180°F (70-80°C), add in the butter and cannabis, stir and cover. Let the mix simmer for about three hours, stirring from time to time. Remove from heat, let it cool, and strain into the container of your choice.
