Thc lean- quick question

Was wanting to make up some “thc lean” to try in different things. I found a recipe on goodeats420. 1.25 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water. 2 tbs veg glycerin. Plus cannabis.

Im wanting to double that.

I found a different recipe on rqs I think it was… anyways… it says 3 cups water, 3 cups sugar, but still only 2 tbs of veg glycerin.

How do I go about making this? Wouldn’t I need more veg glycerin too? Or no?

@Nicky @Capt.Cola @Not2SureYet @dbrn32 @GreenSnek @Gremmall do you know anyone who could help me?

Making this kind of stuff isn’t my cup of tea. @Myfriendis410 @Covertgrower maybe


I assume the glycerin is a thickening agent , how thick you want it is up to you but the 1st one sounds like a thick syrup like fake maple syrup and the second is thinner like true maple syrup

I’ll poke around for this recipe and get back to you.

With a quick search, baking is based on ratios, and you would need more glycerin, in this case you may not.
The glycerin is the carrier for THC, water, sugar don’t carry THC. If you wanted a higher dose, it would probably be recommended to add a bit more glycerin.
I hope this helps.


I would get rid of the vegetable glycerin and look for a coconut oil recipe or sunflower lectin recipe instead.

Here for coconut

Here for sunflower lectin


Ok thank you guys so much! I went ahead and made a small batch to try last night. It’s for the wife, I tried brownies and it was almost too much for me lol I stay away from the powerful stuff. Anyways, I went w the 1 cup of water and 1 1/4 sugar 2 tbs vg and it crystallized so I’m going to be trying one of the recipes above soon! Thanks again! Your help is very much appreciated!
