Step 1

Preheat oven to 250°F. Break up your cannabis flower into small pieces with your hands, then spread out into an even layer on a baking sheet. Take care not to let the cannabis heat over 250°F — if this happens, cannabinoids can burn off and your flower will lose potency. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Remove from the oven and cool before grinding flower into a coarse powder. A coffee grinder works great, though specific devices are sold for cannabis as well. This decarboxylated weed will keep in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to two months.

Step 3

Reduce the heat on the oven to 200°F.

Step 3

Transfer your decarbed weed to a mason jar and cover with the high proof alcohol. Screw the lid on tight and shake every five minutes for 20 minutes total.

Step 4

Strain infused alcohol through a cheesecloth set over a bowl, discarding solids. Mix the sugar into the bowl well, then spread into an even layer in a glass 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Place into oven but leave the oven door slightly ajar. The goal here is to evaporate the alcohol from the mixture.

Step 4

Bake, stirring occasionally, until the alcohol has evaporated and the sugar is lightly golden and the same consistency as regular sugar. This should take anywhere from one to two hours.
