There are multiple ways to enjoy and have fun with CBD-infused products when you know the benefits of the hemp plant. And one of the fun ways is to make homemade cannabis gummies right in your home.
The rising popularity of CBD infused products increases the numbers of those who prefer to make their own CBD gummies because it is easy, made from your desired ingredients and flavors. And it is a lot of fun. You can call out some friends and make some yummy gummy bears. So this process will bring you a lot of enjoyment. But keep in mind that these CBD gummies can be THC gummies, depending on which kind of CBD oil you choose to use.
For those who are new to cannabis-based products, the gummy bears can be a perfect way to start including them in their daily wellness regime. Cannabis gummies are small, tasty, and contain numerous cannabinoids that the hemp plant has. It won't melt at room temperature because it is made from gelatin. But pay attention to leave it far away from the kids and your fluffy friends, so they won't accidentally eat them all.
Simple Weed Gummies Recipe
This recipe below is standard but easy and includes a pre-flavored gelatin package like Jell-O and additional unflavored gelatin to help the cannabis gummy bears set.
Here are the tools and components you will need to get started:
- Candy molds: flexible silicone molds with shapes of bears
- Pouring cup: measuring cup with a spout
- Cooking Spray
- Pre-packaged gelatin dessert such as Jell-O: one 3o.z. package, the flavor of your choice
- Unflavored gelatin: 2.5 tablespoons of high-quality gelatin powder or 7.5 gelatin sheets
- Water: 1/2 cup of cold water or fruit juice (not with citrus flavors)
- Corn Syrup: 1/4th cup
- Cannabis-infused oil: 1/4th cup
- Soy lecithin: 2 teaspoon
Step 1: You must start by preparing the gelatin. If you are using powdered gelatin, add it and the pre-packed gelatin to the water. Let it bloom for 5 minutes. If you are using gelatin sheets, soak them in the water for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Step 2: When the gelatin is ready, you must combine it with the water (fruit juice) and corn syrup in a non-stick saucepan. At this step, you can add a flavor extract of your choice and continue the cooking process (7-10 minutes). Cook this gelatin mixture on medium heat until it reaches a bare simmer and has glue consistency. As the gelatin mixture hits up, whisk it gently but continuously. Do not boil your mixture because boiling can prevent the setting of the gelatin. If there is a white foam forming at the top of the gelatin mixture, scoop it off and slightly reduce the heat.
Step 3: When the mixture has completely melted and combined, remove from the heat and let it cool down. After that, add the cannabis-infused oil and lecithin before mixing it all. If you want to make your homemade cannabis oil, check out our wellness magazine.
Step 4: Spray the cooking spray thoroughly on the silicone mold to remove cannabis gummies easily later. Carefully pour the cooked mixture into a measuring cup with a pour spout.
Step 5: Pour the cannabis-gelatin mixture into the silicone molds with bears' shapes and fill them. If you accidentally left messy edges around the bear shapes, scrape away the excess with a bench scraper or other flat object.
Step 6: When the filling process is done, transfer the silicon molds to the refrigerator for one hour. Do not use the freezer because the freezing can keep the gelatin from setting.
Step 7: An hour later, remove the cannabis gummies from the refrigerator and start pushing the CBD gummy bears out of the molds. The gummy bears should be firm to the touch and yet slightly sticky. Lay these beautiful and delicious cannabis gummies out onto a piece of parchment paper and leave them dry at room temperature, preferably somewhere with good air circulation, such as in front of a fan. Remember that this can take some time depending on your location, ambient temperature, humidity, and a lot of other factors.
As you can see, making weed gummies and other gummy snacks at home by yourself is not that difficult at all.
