    2 cups turbinado sugar
    ½ tsp sea salt
    2 cups heavy cream
    1 ¾ cups light corn syrup
    ½ cup potent marijuana butter
    2 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp dark rum
    2 cups pecan pieces.

    This is the exact ingredient list,, from The Marijuana Food Handbook, by Bill Drake. My friend omitted the last 2 ingredients, and scaled down by half. Here is the formula

    1 In a large saucepan over med-hi heat, bring a mixture of the sugar, salt, 1 cup of the cream,corn syrup, and butter to a boil.(remember, he only did half of this) Boil slowly for 10 minutes, stirring constantly, not scraping the bottom of the pan.(here I omit the part where he says you can put unused buds in this mixture during the 10 minutes…fuck that
    2 Dribble in the remaining cream continuing to stir. Add the cream slowly enough not to disturb the boiling.
    3 Continue to cook until a little of the mixture, when plopped into cold water and rolled between the thumb and index finger, forms a firm but not hard ball
    4When the firm ball stage is reached, remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Pour out onto a buttered cookie sheet with sides and let cool. Cut into bite size pieces and wrap individually in wax paper.
    5 look out, this is nearly irresistible. (these were the first words of the recipe.)

    This is no hype-these are the tastiest edibles on earth. Cooking a bit longer makes it harder but toffee-like. The sugar is a vehicle to shuttle the THC to the blood-then the brain, like it does with nutrients. DO NOT OVERDO IT.
    AFOAF used ½ the recipe. His ¼ lb of butter(1 stick) was made with1 oz (of sugary trim) and he estimates 30 delicious medicinal candies.

    We know someone who would very much enjoy this recipe. Will try and share it with them and if made, return with the results of the experiment.

    Thanks for responding.
    This is very powerful medicine, but so delicious it is easy to overdo it. For those with no appetite, sucking on a piece of this will still provide medicinal benefits, like a canna-lozenge
