Is there a way to make simple and juicy caramels even more desirable? The answer is yes. Infuse them with cannabis and have a sweet buzz-filled day.

When it comes to cannabis edibles, it’s not just about space cookies or hash brownies anymore. There is a whole world of exotic recipes with cannabutter as the main ingredient. This recipe stands out with its simplicity and short preparation time, making it ideal for beginners.

Caramel has some interesting properties, which make it a very popular cannabis edible. With sugar as its preservative, it has a long shelf life - so preparing it in bulk is a good idea because you don’t have to worry it’ll go bad. It’s easy to store, can be frozen, and can be enjoyed on the go. So here is a quick and easy to follow recipe showing you how to make your own.


  • 1 cup of cannabis butter
  • 2 ¼ cups of brown sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of corn syrup
  • 310ml of condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract


1. First melt the butter in a small or medium size pot over medium heat.

2. Wait for butter to take a creamy form and then add brown sugar and salt. Stir until combined.

3. After that, add corn syrup and mix it well. You can start adding condensed milk, slowly, while stirring. Make sure you are stirring constantly in order to get a smooth, creamy texture without clumps.

4. Cook for about 15 minutes or until it gets firm and gooey. Caramel also goes very well with any kind of nuts or even fruit so feel free to add some if you like.

5. At this point, you can turn off the heat and stir in vanilla extract until it completely gets absorbed. Pour it into a pan of choice (9 x 13 inch pan is most commonly used) and let it cool. Once they get to room temperature, cut them in any form you like and wrap them.

In just under half an hour you have your delicious cannabis infused caramel ready for serving. Enjoy! Remember, cannabis edibles take a while to kick in, so take your time with them!
