Will Breathes' Non-Alcoholic Coconut Cannabis Mojito I realize that this recipe isn't really a ganja-specific recpe, considering you can add cannabis tincture to anything - but the sweetness of the glycerin mixes beautifully with the sugary nature of the traditionally rum-based drink. Any cannabis taste from the tincture is masked by the potency of the mint. An added bonus for medical marijuana patients with stomach issues: Mint is naturally good for digestion.

Ingredients - Ice - 12 large mint leaves - 2 ounces of unsweetened coconut water. - Tonic water - 1 tablespoon brown sugar - 1/2 tablespoon white sugar - 1/2 lime - Glycerin cannabis tincture

Muddle mint leaves and ¼ slice of lime in the bottom of a sturdy glass, add rest of the lime and sugar. Fill with ice to the top, then add coconut water and an appropriate dosage of tincture. Top with tonic water, stir and medicate.

ColoradoMidnightRider's Medicated Hard Candy Activist Tim Tipton shared his favorite recipe for a hard candy that's potent and easy to customize using any flavors you can find.

Ingredients - 2 cups sugar - 3/4 cup water - 2/3 cup corn syrup - 1 1/2 teaspoons candy flavoring (available at specialty baking/cake shops) - 4 grams top-shelf kief or 3 1/2 grams standard kief.

Tools - Candy thermometer - Measuring cups and spoons - Candy molds (for very hot liquid) - Metal spoons and metal spatula

Combine sugar, water and corn syrup in a quart-sized heavy pan. Insert a candy thermometer on the side of the pan (be careful not to touch the thermometer to the bottom of pan). Stir on low-to-medium heat. At around 200 degrees, the mix should start to slowly boil and you can stop stirring. Allow the mixture to come right to 295 degrees, then take the pan from the heat and cool to 290 degrees. Working fast, thoroughly stir in flavoring, then add kief and stir until incorporated. Pour into molds that have been lightly sprayed with a non-stick agent and allow to cool.
