You can use your water to make some candy @cyberblast. Just replace the water they call for with your cannabis infused water.
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
¾ cup water
1 dram (1 teaspoon)* LorAnn super-strength flavoring, any flavor
LorAnn liquid food coloring or gel food coloring (as desired)
Hard candy molds (optional)
Powdered sugar (optional)
Sucker bags & twist ties (optional)
Use of a candy thermometer is recommended
*Please note that our Cinnamon, Clove and Peppermint flavors are particularly potent. You may wish to reduce the amount used for these flavors.
Have all ingredients and tools assembled and within easy reach of the stove. The use of metal spoons and measuring utensils is recommended. Line a cookie sheet/jelly roll pan with foil and lightly oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray (such as PAM). If using molds, lightly spray cavities of clean, dry candy molds with non-stick cooking spray. Insert sucker sticks. If using molds, you may also want to spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray. If after pouring the syrup into the molds you have excess candy, you can pour it onto the foil for break-up candy.
In a heavy (good quality) 2-quart saucepan, mix together sugar, corn syrup and water. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
Insert candy thermometer if using, making certain it does not touch the bottom of the pan. Bring mixture to a boil without stirring.
Early in the cooking process, “wash down” any sugar crystals that form on the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush.
Continue to cook the syrup, without stirring, until the temperature reaches 260º F; add drops of coloring until desired hue is achieved. Do not stir; boiling action will incorporate color into syrup.
Remove from heat precisely at 300° F (temperature will continue rising), or until drops of syrup form hard, brittle threads in cold water (hard crack stage). After boiling action has ceased, add flavor and stir. USE CAUTION WHEN ADDING FLAVORING TO AVOID RISING STEAM.
Carefully pour syrup into prepared molds or onto the prepared greased and foil lined cookie sheet. (As the sugar mixture begins to set up, you may want to score with a large knife to mark squares.) Do not refrigerate.
Cool completely. Break sheet candy into small pieces and dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Store in airtight containers between waxed paper. If making lollipops, do not dust with powdered sugar, but place in sucker bags and secure with twist ties. Store hard candy in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate.
*Another alternative is to pour the hot candy onto a heat-resistant surface covered in powdered sugar. When the candy is slightly cooled, it can be cut with well-oiled scissors into pillow-shaped pieces (you may want to wear heat-resistant gloves, such as rubber, to protect hands from heat).

The flavoring possibilities are endless for these candies. Just pair your favorite super strength flavor with a corresponding food color for a rainbow of colors and flavors. Other classic flavors to try: Orange, Lemon, Grape & Cherry. For a slightly more gourmet gumdrop - try flavors like Pear, Peach, Blackberry, or Mango. Flavors such as Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy & Tropical Punch are always a hit with kids.
RECIPE TIP: Tart & Sour, a blend of citric acid and malic acid, adds a touch of tang that enhances the taste of fruit flavors. To create a sour flavor, add 1-1/2 teaspoons.
4 envelopes unflavored gelatin (such as Knox brand)
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon Super Strength Flavoring (any flavor)
1/2 teaspoon Tart & Sour Flavor Enhancer (if using fruit flavors such as lime, lemon, orange, cherry, etc.)
Gel or Liquid food coloring, as desired
Additional sugar for coating (add a pinch of granular citric acid to the sugar for extra sour power!)
Spray a 9" x 9" pan with non-stick cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
Combine gelatin with 1/2 cup cold water in a small bowl and set aside for a few minutes to soften the gelatin.
Combine the sugar and 3/4 cup water in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Remove from heat and add flavoring, Tart & Sour (if using), and food coloring. Add the gelatin mixture to the hot syrup and stir with a wire whisk until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in more food coloring if necessary to attain desired hue.
Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate several hours until well chilled or overnight.
Coat a large cutting board with sugar and turnout the chilled block of gelatin onto the board. Use small cookie cutters to cut out shapes or use a knife to slice the block into large strips, then slice each strip into squares. Toss gumdrops in a bowl filled with sugar. Transfer to a colander to shake off excess sugar. Place individual gumdrops on a sheet of waxed paper and allow to air-dry for a day or two to crystallize.
Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy and let us know how it comes out if you try it.
