Continue reading to find out how to make CBD gummies.
Get Clear on Your Dosing
If you’re not sure how to make CBD gummies, the first thing to do is work out your dosage.
A great place to start is by deciding what dose you want to take at a time. Then decide whether you want the dose in one gummy, or split over multiple gummies.
For instance, if you usually take a 25mg dose of CBD, do you want this dose in one gummy? Or would you rather eat three gummies for the same dose? If so, simply divide the 25mg across three gummies to get your per gummy dose.
Gather Your Ingredients
The next step in how to make your own CBD gummies is gathering your ingredients together and sourcing some molds.
Although you can make CBD gummies without molds, it’s a lot easier to get your doses right with a mold, and it’s easier to pop the gummies out once they have set.
If you’re wondering “what do I need to make CBD gummies besides molds?” the answer will depend on what CBD gummies recipe you use.
Here we are going to give you a basic CBD gummies recipe that you can make with fruit juice and gelatin. However, you can also use jello, different herbal teas, such as jasmine tea, or even make a vegan version using vegan gel instead of gelatin.
For our basic fruit juice and gelatin recipe you will need:
- A fruit juice of your choice
- Honey or sugar for extra sweetness
- Corn starch
- CBD isolate or oil
If you don’t want to experience any psychoactive effects, CBD isolate is a safer choice than CBD oil. If you want to eradicate any chance of mental impairment, you can also look into getting some CBC isolate. CBC has very similar effects to CBD, but with even less chance of psychoactive effects.
Now that you know what is in CBD gummies, let’s move on to how to mix up a batch.
Mix Up Your CBD Gummy Batch
To make up a batch of CBD gummies, start by heating up your fruit juice until it steams slightly, and add 2 tablespoons of gelatin for every cup of juice. Add some extra honey or sugar to taste.
After that add a teaspoon of cornstarch for every cup of fruit juice. Not all CBD gummies recipes call for cornstarch, but if you’re using CBD oil it can help to bind the oil and water together and prevent the oil from separating out of the gummies and sitting on top once they have set.
Lastly, add your CBD oil or isolate, and stir thoroughly. Pour into your molds, place in the refrigerator, and leave to set for a few hours.
Now You Know How to Make CBD Gummies
As you can see, whipping up a batch of CBD gummies is pretty simple. All you need are some molds, isolate or oil, fruit juice, gelatin, a little cornstarch, some extra sweetener, and you’re good to go.
Now that you know how to make CBD gummies, you can save money by making your own edibles, and experiment with different flavors and doses.
