Blue Raspberry Hard Candy – Homemade (Dleafsmoke)

4

This was Dleafsmoke’s first attempt at medicated candy, and I’ve got to say I’m impressed!  Making hard candies like t his is really easy to screw up, but the end result looks great!  –Tokeahontas

A. This is my first batch of candy I've made. It is potent, tastes good and made a lot more than I intended to.
Type:
Rock hard that dissolves easily in a warm drink or on your tongue.
Price Each:
It cost me about $60 worth of butane and ingredients
Looks:

This was my first attempt and with that I had no idea how many molds to make ahead of time.  After pouring my first molds I had to scramble to make some more molds before the candy set.  With little time I made a few larger candy slab molds and let it set.  I expected these to be blue but with the coloring of molasses it turned an awesome green.  The outside is coated in icing sugar, reminding me of buying bulk candy as a kid.

Smell:

Very sweet.  I may have used a little too much blue raspberry flavoring so the batch smells like pure blue jello.

Taste:

Strong raspberry taste with a very slight lingering hashyness.  The longer you let it sit on your tongue the more intense the hashyness gets.  I put a lozenge in with my tea instead of sugar and it had an almost “blueberry tea” flavor (the alcoholic drink not just blueberries).

Buzz Type:

Holy crap these pack a punch.  I ate 2 small pieces about the size of a dime each at 1pm.  It slowly set in and about 45 minutes later I was totally couch locked, not going anywhere and in a heavy lazy daze.  I ended up giving up on video games and resorted to napping within 2.5 hours of eating the candy.  I woke up 3 hours later and had a very couch locked stoney feeling that took another 2 hours to wear off.  In the future I will be taking it easy on these during the day and using them for bad days and nighttime.

Buzz Length:

I have made edibles using butter several times and never really got anything from it.  This candy totally blew me away with 8+ hour buzz on just 2 small pieces.

Overall:

This was an experiment and a total success.  I had a little over a half pound of nugs that had already been run.  Using a giant tube I re-ran the material and ended up with 3 grams of dark caramel oil that I wouldn’t dab on the worst of days. :P After a heavy amount of researching I found that making a coconut oil tincture and then infusing candy would be a great way to use the BHO and hopefully smother the nasty taste it had.  I will be continuing to save my run material for this purpose in the future.  I am wondering if an unflavored batch would taste any good as I love to drink tea and this would be a great way to medicate.

Overall I am very happy with the candy, only a few little things will be changed next time around.  –DleafSmoke
