I tried making my first batch of Canna-Sugar today and wanted to get some feedback from people that have made this themselves.
Below is the recipe I used:

**NOTICE the last sentence states, when finished it should be gold-ish/light brown in color.

So I doubled the recipe, that’s the only thing I did different. I wanted it to be stronger so I used:
•6g of flower
•1c of 100-proof clear alcohol
•1.5c of sugar

After decarbing the flower, I put the flower into a mason jar and poured the alcohol over it. I let it sit for 20min, shaking every 5min as instructed.
Immediately I noticed the liquid had a pink hue to it…
Now, like I said, this is my first time making Canna-sugar (or tincture, which the steps prior to adding the sugar are the same for tincture).
However, I have made canna-butter, canna-oil & canna-honey numerous times and this has NEVER happened….

SO, my first thought was maybe my flower had some purple to it? I looked, and yes the flower I used this time did have about 50/50 green to purple color ratio.
BUT, since all the recipes online and in my books say it’ll end up being gold-ish/light brown I’m a bit hesitant to use my Canna-Sugar in a recipe until I can get some feedback from other people.
1. Has anyone else had this happen?
2. I did try to do research to see if the canna-sugar will turn certain colors if something is messed up or was done wrong somewhere in the process — with no luck. If anyone has any links to a forum or article that addresses this please, send the info my way!!
3. Since my tincture turned pink-ish as soon as the alcohol hit the flower it makes me think two things:
i. I fu***d up.
ii. It’s simply due to the flower I used.

Here is a picture of the finished product;

Anyone have any thoughts? Information? Suggestions? Personal experience with the same thing maybe?

Thank y’all in advance
