Ive never used coconut oil when using bho in candies. Sometimes the bho doesn't look like it blends perfectly by itself, so id imagine that adding oil, would make it harder to blend, like u experienced. I read this thread and badkittys comments, but for me, I put the bho in just after the candy mix has been stirred. So it gets the chance to heat. I haven't had the candies tested, but I have had the bho tested, and I measure carefully, so I know pretty well the dosage I use. My standard is about 60mg bho per candy. The majority who take this report that its too strong. For me its like not having to smoke but once or twice a day, but still feeling like I smoked all day. Im going to go with 1/2 this strength, about 30mg as my new standard, so more people can use them without getting too stoned. U can always take more than 1. lol...
Anyway I wanted to respond to ur post so that u know my experience with the effectiveness without first infusing bho into a oil. My take on it has been that the slow cook to 300f works as a perfect decarb time, and the sugar from the candy is enough of a carrier or fat for the thc to get absorbed very quickly. Maybe it has something to do with body chemistry or somebody just ate a fatty meal that helps absorption more, but im positive the way I do it works very well from reports from numerous people.
this might help u too. My oil is around 60 to 70% strain dependent. So with the standard loranne hard candy recipe at full batch is about just over 2 rectangle mold trays. Roughly 130 pieces. So I measure 13g bho, thus each piece gets .1g of bho. At about 60 to 70%, ends up being 60 to 70 mg per candy. Like I said earlier though, unless ur a seasoned vet, this is usually too strong, so im gonna start using 6.5g per batch. Oh and if the batch is too big, too many candies, or requires too much bho for u, then I make half batches all the time too. just cut the recipe in half, but use a very small pot to cook with or the surface area of the candy will be spread thin and make it easy to overheat and burn ur sugar. Low and slow is my motto during candy making. good luck.
