How to Make Jolly Rancher Marijuana Edibles

One of the most popular categories of marijuana edibles are marijuana hard candies such as marijuana Jolly Ranchers. The appeal is quite apparent: You get a high that’s as strong and long-lasting as normal edibles, but get to enjoy a deliciously sweet hard candy in the process. Some also like the fact that given you consume a Jolly Rancher over the course of 10-25 minutes and not within a couple minutes like a small-to-medium marijuana cookie, the high has an even more gradual onset than standard edibles.

Luckily, making marijuana Jolly Ranchers isn’t near as difficult as you might think. It also doesn’t take near as long – or take near as much cannabis – as you may think.

All that said, let’s cut to the chase and tell you how to make it!

Keto Edibles

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is often used to help treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children. Based on the core of the diet, it forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.


This diet has become increasingly popular in recent years, as have marijuana edibles. So, it only makes sense to combine to two worlds so that those on such a diet can still enjoy their cannabis-infused food and drinks. Luckily, it’s easy! Making keto edibles is quite simple, and not really anymore difficult than making regular marijuana edibles.

With that in mind, here are two easy recipes for keto edibles – keto brownies, and keto gummy bears!

How to Make Edibles with Hash

Yes, it’s true – marijuana edibles are marijuana-infused foods or drinks that are typically made using grounded marijuana leaves or buds. However, edibles can also be made with concentrated marijuana, such as kief, oil and hashish.

Doing so results in a more potent product that, unless you use but a small amount, will have high levels of THC (and other marijuana compounds), considerably higher than an edible made with regular marijuana.

All that said, let’s take a look at how to make edibles with hash!
