Cannabis sugar might be the most versatile edible you can imagine. It's a basic ingredient that can infuse almost any food-related item.


  • 3-5 grams of cannabis

  • 1 cup of grain ethanol (≈ 200ml)

  • 1 cup of sugar (≈ 200ml)

The Gear:

  • POT by NOIDS

  • One container for the finished product

  • One cup to retain the evaporated ethanol

How It's Done:

  1. Decarboxylate Your Cannabis: Activate the THC or CBD in your cannabis. Check our website or YouTube channel for tips.

  2. Infuse the Ethanol:

    • Add the ethanol to your decarboxylated herbs.

    • Let the mixture rest for at least three hours at room temperature. Stir once or twice.

  3. Filter the Mixture:

    • Use the POT by NOIDS filter to separate the used herb flowers from the mixture. Discard the buds.

  4. Mix in the Sugar:

    • Put the filtered mixture back into the glass.

    • Add the sugar and stir well.

  5. Evaporate the Ethanol:

    • Attach the condenser to your filter.

    • Use the POT by NOIDS to evaporate the ethanol, catching up to 95% back in your cup.

  6. Cool and Grind:

    • Let the infused sugar cool down.

    • Once cold, grind or break it into your desired size.


This method is similar to making wax or tincture. To make sugar, you add the sugar before the last step (evaporation of the ethanol). Check out our step-by-step video on how to make wax/tincture on our YouTube channel!
