Add Sweetener to Make Cannabis Medication More Palatable

Cannabis Medicating Concentrates


It’s another sweet morning, and I’m up cooking with Cannabis.

There is more than one way to wake and bake or take care of a sore body. One of my favorites, that always brings a smile to my face is my Medicated Sweetener.

It’s always nice to have options, and when it comes to cooking and baking, fats and alcohols aren’t the only game in town. Sure they are great, I mean who doesn’t love cannabis eggs(made with infused cannabis grease).

Let’s just say, it brings green eggs and ham to a whole new level.

But, sometimes I just want to chill with my cannabis coffee or maybe I need a quicker under the tongue sublingual method. It truly down, in the lost delightful way!


It’s important to know that not all sweet things are not created equally.

Personally, I have had to put a lot of thought into the sweetener I chose to use for medical reasons, so let me share what I have learned with you, and you can experiment for yourself.

(Note- I only use the natural granulated sweeteners below.)

  1. Monk Fruit
    Monk fruit, a natural sweetener, made from the Monk Fruit. Common in other countries and used for centuries, for dietary and medical purposes in countries like China, it has grown in popularity in the United States over the last few decades and was finally approved by the FDA in 2010 as a sweetener. It has zero, that’s right ZERO calories, and it’s All Natural. It’s said to be anywhere from 200 to 400 times sweeter than sugar and have some wonderful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and benefits. By weight, it’s more expensive than sugar but in my honest opinion the benefits are totally worth the cost, and you use significantly less so it lasts a long time. Until recently, I was not able to find it in stores and generally ordered from Amazon. I have been buying and using Monk fruit for years, and as a medical patient with inflammation and pain issues, I can personally attest to its benefits. It’s also said to help with weight loss, and it is Keto friendly.
  2. Swerve
    Swerve Sweetener is a natural sweetener made from corn and vegetable byproducts in a brewery process. Then a natural citrus flavoring is added.. According to the company, it “contains erythritol sourced from non-GMO corn, oligosaccharides from root vegetables and citrus-based natural flavors.” It is also more expensive than sugar, and can be found in most groceries. Swerve can be a good choice for certain recipes because scientifically it reacts similarly to sugar in the baking process and will carmelize like sugar.
  3. Stevia
    Is a natural sweetener that is derived from the leaves of a Stevia plant. It is 200 times sweeter than sugar and also has zero calories. It is also a popular substitution for sugar and is popular with many dietary restriction programs when sugar has caused a health or dietary concern.
  4. Sugar
    Sugar needs no real introduction. We all know what it is, and how to use it. The truth is, we know it so well that many of us use it too much. Only a couple centuries ago,people were consuming only about 2 pounds of sugar a year. Now, it’s estimated that, on average, Americans consume 123 pounds per year. Yikes! But I get it, sugar is an easy source of energy, generally found in most pantries, and it will certainly act as a carrier agent for the cannabis compounds we love. If you were like me however, my body will take that sugar and speed up my metabolism to the point that the thc is out of my body before I even know it’s there. So, for me- amd maybe for you- another sweetener would be preferable.

My personal favorite is Monk Fruit. It is a staple in my cabinet.

With its intense sweetness, it takes very little effort to take a marijuana-infused alcohol tincture and turn it into sweet sweet success.

It has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries and is there only one that may help with pain and inflammations.

Unlike sugar, it isn’t believed to cause cavities or have the same effect of speeding up metabolisms so you may experience the benefits of your cannabis compounds substantially longer, without the extra calories and other health repercussions of sugar.

I have found this to be true for me personally.

Supplies Needed to Produce Your Own Cannabis-Infused Sweetened Medicine

  • Supplies
  • Oven safe dish
  • Shot glass or Measuring cup
  • Aluminum foil
  • Stirring utensil
  • Tight sealing glass jar for storage
  • Hot pad

Ingredients Needed For Sweetened Cannabis Meds


Granulated Sweetener of your choice.
Medicated alcohol tincture: Many people prefer a 190 grain alcohol infusion ( if they are interested in maximum absorption and saturation of the various THC amd CBDs, although some cant get it in their state). Others might opt for 150 grain alcohol, or a mellower vodka or brandy infusion. With all the different possible combinations out there, there’s no reason not to have a few different fun options on hand.

Cooking Direction to Infuse Your Cannabis Medication


• Preheat oven to 200° F.
• Mix one part marijuana alcohol tincture with two parts sweetener. You may have or only want to try a little at a time or you decide to go big.
• Cover with aluminum foil

Small Batch Cannabis Infusion Cooking Method


• Preheat oven to 200° F
• Mix one shot glass marijuana alcohol tincture with two shot glasses of the sweetener of your choice in the oven safe dish.
• Cover the oven safe dish Losely with foil. (The objective is to use a low level heat to dissipate the alcohol after 10 leave the meds behind.).
• Put the covered dish in the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes. Check it and stir. If there is still alcohol on top, loosely cover it again and put it back in the oven and set another timer for 5-10 minutes.
• Continue this process until your sugar has reach the desired consistency and no liquid remains. Once your sugar appears basically dry take it out and let it cool. It wasn’t that hot to begin with, so it won’t take long.
• After about 10 minutes, uncover the dish and let it air dry the rest of the way if needed.
• Store in a tight lidded glass jar – labeled appropriately. .
Larger Batch Cooking Method: This has become such a staple in my cabinet that I make it regularly. These days I use a bigger batch method.
• Preheat oven to 200° F
• Mix ½ Cup marijuana alcohol tincture with 1 ½ Cups of the sweetener of your choice in the oven safe dish.
• Cover the oven safe dish Losely with foil. (The objective is to use a low level heat to dissipate the alcohol after 10 leave the meds behind.).
• Put the covered dish in the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes. Check it and stir. Continue the 10 minute check and stir rotation until the liquid alcohol gone, then set another timer for 5-10 minutes to finish drying i out. .
• When your sugar has reach the desired dryness take it out and let it cool. It wasn’t that hot to begin with, so it won’t take long.
• After about 10 minutes, uncover the dish and let it air dry the rest of the way if needed.
• Store in a tight lidded glass jar – labeled appropriately.

Enjoy this medicated sweetness over the course of the next few months, if it lasts that long. Have a spoonful, or add it to your favorite coffee or cereal.

It’s amazing in recipes. Just take note that the different sweeteners have different substitution rates with sugar and are often personalized to taste, for example, I only use 1/4 of the Monk fruit that I would use in a regular sugar recipe.

You can even double the pleasure, and double the fun by layering a recipe with medicated butter and medicated sugar.

This Simple DIY trick can make treating your medical needs more discrete, is essentially odorless, is easy to use, and will take your cooking and baked goods to a whole new level.

It’s All The Rage on the cannabis cooking shows these days.

In addition, it’s probably not sold in a dispensary near you and even if it is, I guarantee you will pay dearly for it.

We like Jerry’s philosophy, let’s grow and share and learn together! It does not have to be rocket science, and it doesn’t have to be expensive or unattainable if we all put our skills and expertise together.

As soon as the seeds that I received from Jerry have matured into big beautiful Bud’s I’ll be making some with his meds and I will be sure to let everyone know how they turn out.
