There’s something about those sweet little teddy bears that makes me want to kick back and relax or just slow down for a bit. And when you add weed to these gummies — well, let’s just say that’s one great way to make a favorite treat even better.
By sucking on a gummy candy and allowing it to melt away slowly, cannabinoids can absorb directly into the bloodstream through mucosal membranes which are exceptionally dense under the tongue or between the cheek and gum. Hemp-derived cannabidiol contains less than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive ingredient associated with marijuana, and is often used to treat various medical conditions.
Rather than forcing cannabinoids to metabolize (which takes longer to take effect and burns up more cannabinoids in the process), cannabinoids can get right to work in a matter of minutes through sublingual absorption.
Looking for an easy recipe to make some super tasty, high potenecy CBD gummies? You’ve come to the right place! These DIY gummies are the bees knees.
½ cup of gelatin – I will ONLY use this brand of gelatin as it has loads of healthful properties
2 cups of juice of your choice – you can use bottled or fresh squeezed juice
1 teaspoon of sweetener (I recommend raw honey)
24 drops of CBD oil (you can choose the milligrams of CBD oil based on what you have available. The more milligrams of CBD per bottle, the more potent the gummies will be. To find out how many milligrams are in each drop of your CBD oil, refer to this post.)
Natural food dye (optional)
Pour the gelatin into a glass bowl.
In a medium size saucepan, mix the juice with the raw honey and warm the mixture until it starts to simmer. Please do this on the stovetop over low heat. No microwaving here!
Pull off the liquid from the heat. Mix the liquid into the gelatin by whisking quickly.
Allow the liquid to cool for about 5 minutes.
Add the CBD oil into the mixture. Give everything a final whisking to make sure all ingredients are mixed well.
If using dye, add that now and whisk again.
I divide my mixture into small bowls and add different colors at this point.
Pour the mixture into gummy molds and put them into the refrigerator. Allow the molds to stay in the fridge until they seem firm.
Carefully remove the CBD gummies from the molds and store in an airtight container.
I keep mine in the fridge since it is so warm here. If your house is cool, they will be fine at room temperature.
Another way to make CBD gummies is to NOT add the CBD oil into the juice/gelatin mixture. Instead, you would place 2 drops of CBD oil into each individual gummy mold. Then, pour in the liquid.
Finally, top it off with 2-3 additional drops of CBD oil. The number of drops you choose depends on the potency you want the CBD gummies to be.
Make sure you know how to find out how many millgrams of CBD are in each drop of your CBD oil. Don’t want to make your own? No biggie. I get it.
Life happens. If I were ordering something premade, I would get these CBD gummies. They are the healthiest on the market, have a decent amount of CBD oil in them, and taste awesome!
