CBD can assist in healing the mind and body. Muscle cramps are soothed, and anti-inflammatory benefits are provided from this compound.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon CBD oil
  • ½ teaspoon flavored extract of your choice (e.g., lemon, raspberry, etc.)
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Going Step by Step

  1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and lightly spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water. Stir the mixture over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved completely.
  3. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan, making sure it doesn't touch the bottom.
  4. Increase the heat to high and let the mixture come to a boil. Continue boiling until the candy thermometer reaches 300°F (150°C), also known as the hard crack stage.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it sit for a few minutes until the bubbling subsides.
  6. Stir in the CBD oil, flavored extract, and food coloring (if desired) until well combined.
  7. Working quickly, pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, forming small circles with the help of a lollipop stick in the center of each circle. Leave enough space between each lollipop so they don't stick together.
  8. Let the lollipops cool completely and harden. This process may take around 30 minutes to an hour.
  9. Once the lollipops have hardened, carefully remove them from the baking sheet and store them in an airtight container.
  10. Give it a try and enjoy!
