This week I decided to make my own cough drops. I have a sensitive throat so I have always used cough drops after taking a dab, but now those cough drops also get me high or manage my pain!
This recipe is fairly easy, but you will need to be prepared as this goes quickly. You will need a stick of CannaButter, 1 cup of CannaAgave (or infused honey or maple syrup), 2 tbs water, 1/2 tsp of white vinegar, and 2 tbs of fresh lemon juice.
You will also need a small pot, candy thermometer, spatula, and a pan lined with parchment paper. You will want to get all the tools and ingredients before you start making these cough drops.
Take your butter, place in the pot and let it melt down. Add your agave to the butter and mix it together. Turn the heat onto Medium heat and continue to stir. Add your vinegar and water to the mix and continue to stir.
Check your heat, we want the mixture to sit at 250F for about five minutes before turning up to 300F. Increase the heat as needed, stirring continuously.
When the mixture sits around 250F, turn the heat to high.
CAUTION: adding the lemon juice will cause the mixture to sputter! Carefully add the lemon juice, and keep stirring, as this will decrease the sputtering. Keep the mixture on high heat, stirring continuously for 1 minute.
After that minute, turn off the heat, and pour the mixture into your parchment lined dish. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes, to let harden slightly.
After the 15 minute cooling period, remove from the fridge. Use a knife to cut into portions, I cut them smaller than I needed and they were 8mg per piece.
Once cut, throw into a jar and use as needed. I prefer keeping mine in the fridge as that keeps them from sticking to one another.
That’s it! Now you have cough drops for if your sick or if your throat hurts after taking a dab!
Pretty easy right?! What would you guys like to see me make?
