Last month, I promised that I’d show you how to turn a simple CBD tincture made with Everclear into CBD sugar and then into CBD candy. 

But last month when I shared that, I didn’t know that I’d be knee-deep in a move to the Pacific Northwest at this very moment.

If you’ve been a Wake + Bake reader for some time, you know that relocation has been the name of the game since this blog started. Since I wrote my first cookbook in Colorado in 2012, I’ve moved about 10 times all over the country.

After living in a cabin that I spent 3 years remodeling, I felt the pull to move on again, this time out of the desert to a place with clouds, and ferns, and a mushroom season that extends into almost every month. 

Having a 7 year old meant I’d have to get there in time for the school year, so this move has been fast and furious.

And if I’m honest, I was worried I wouldn’t get this to you in time. There was so much to do that I didn’t think I’d have time to make anything.

But if you’re a Cannabis Educator and recipe developer, there’s that part of moving where you find so. much. hemp. in your pantry.

I found bags and jars and tins full of hemp. I stood there standing with the mound of plant material in front of me in various containers just two days before I knew I’d be pulling away in the moving truck.

I couldn’t just toss it and move knowing that my parents, neighbors, and friends could benefit from it.

So I went to work mixing and making, running two Ardents at a time, blending cannabinoids and stirring salves, and finishing up this CBD sugar recipe just in time.

Luckily, this CBD sugar is one of the easiest CBD recipes you can make, especially if you already have last month’s Everclear Tincture on hand. 

In this blog post, I’ll go over everything you need to know about making CBD sugar with Everclear tincture, including how to use it and the benefits of making your own. I hope you love it.

Once you know how to make CBD sugar, it drastically diversifies the CBD edibles you can make.

Next month, when I’m coming to you from Washington state, I’ll show you how to turn this sugar into CBD hard candy. See you then!

Why Make CBD Sugar with an Everclear Tincture?

CBD sugar is a great way to infuse your edibles with CBD. Whether you’re making cookies, brownies, or even cocktails, adding CBD sugar to your recipe is an easy way to incorporate CBD into your diet.

Plus, making your own CBD sugar allows you to control the potency and quality of the final product. You can use as much or as little CBD as you want, and you can choose the type of sugar you want to use.

Another benefit of making CBD sugar is that it’s extremely versatile. You can use it to sweeten your morning coffee or tea, or you can sprinkle it on top of your oatmeal or yogurt.

You can also use it to make baked goods, like muffins, cakes, and cookies. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even use it to make challenging edibles, like hard candy.

Types of Sugar to Use to Make CBD Sugar

When making CBD sugar, you have a few options when it comes to the type of sugar you use. You can use regular granulated sugar, coconut sugar, or brown sugar. Each type of sugar has its own unique flavor profile and can affect the texture of your final product.

Regular granulated sugar is the most common type of sugar used in baking. It’s fine-grained and dissolves easily in liquids, making it a great choice for making CBD sugar. Coconut sugar is a natural sweetener that’s lower on the glycemic index than regular sugar. 

It has a slightly caramel-like flavor and is a good choice for making CBD sugar if you want a more complex flavor profile. Brown sugar is another option that has a molasses-like flavor and can add depth to your CBD sugar.

Now that you know why and what type of sugar to use, let’s go over how to make CBD sugar with Everclear tincture. Everclear is a high-proof grain alcohol that’s used to extract the CBD from the hemp plant. 

It’s important to note that Everclear is extremely potent and can be dangerous if not handled properly. Always use caution when working with high-proof alcohol.

    1. You can… I’ve infused monk fruit crystals and other things, but if it were me, I’d just steer clear of the sugar substances and use tinctures. Some of those substitutes have interesting ingredients.
