Breath mints can help to pick you up when you’re feeling sluggish as the cool deep minty flavor reaches down to the depths of your stomach, so why not add a little weed to complete the deal?

These delicious treats can help to fight off nausea, bad breath, and they will leave you feeling good and stoned, but the best part is how small they are. Like THC gummies, these incredible edibles are measured to provide a microdose of THC, which will make you feel good, and goes down easy, so you can enjoy as many as you like throughout the day.

Weed mints recipe

These breath mints can be broken into any size that you like, and they will store well for weeks on end in nothing more than a tin can like you would get with a purchase of Altoids. So, whip up a batch or two, and make sure to keep some extras on hand, because you just never know where the day will take you with a handful of infused breath mints.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Drying time: 72 hours

Calories: 30 per piece

Servings: 100

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gum paste (dry)
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cannabis oil
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint flavor

Tools

  • Large bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking pan
  • Storage container with lid

Instructions

  1. Add the gum paste, flavoring, and water to a large mixing bowl and combine them until you are left with a thick paste.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and prepare it with a light sprinkling of icing sugar.

  3. Drop the dough onto the sheet of parchment paper covered with icing sugar and spread the remaining icing sugar on top of the mound of dough.

  4. Now, you can get out molds, cookie cutters, or other fancy preparation tools to make mints that look visually appealing, or you can roll the dough into 300 individual balls that are all relatively close in size. Technically the equal sizing is only necessary if you want the same dose with each piece, but it's helpful when it comes to predicting the effects, especially if it’s your first time trying some of these incredible edibles.

Ways to switch things up

After a few batches of these plain mints, you are bound to be in love, but we all enjoy a slight change from time to time, and that is really easy to do with this mint recipe. If you love a deep cinnamon taste, then try some of that flavoring instead, or go way outside the box and experiment with some of the more intense citrus flavors. Many of them are just as effective at combating bad breath as traditional mints, and they taste great too.

For an extra luxurious experiment, this mint recipe can be altered just enough by doubling the water called for, which will result in a smooth, soft, chewy breath mint that tastes amazing on its own, and works well as a center for a milk or dark chocolate layer that will have you and everyone you know, gobbling these treats up by the batch, with a new and exciting twist each and every time. Just don’t forget to keep the liquid and dry ingredient measurements the same, and your options with this recipe are close to endless.
