How To Make Cannabis Gummies
Now that we know what marijuana gummies are and why they are so popular let's talk about how to make them. Marijuana gummies can be made with either THC or CBD, or both. The process of making edible gummies is similar to making regular gummies, with a few extra steps.
If you want to make cannabis gummies, you will need the following:
½ cup cannabis-infused coconut oil
First, you will need half a cup of cannabis-infused coconut oil. You can make this by decarboxylating cannabis and infusing it into coconut oil.
½ cup cold water
Next, you will need half a cup of cold water.
85-gram packet of flavored gelatine (this is the standard size small box of Jell-o)
Then, you will need an 85-gram packet of flavored gelatine. You can use any flavor of gelatine you like.
Two tablespoons of unflavored gelatine
You will also need two tablespoons of unflavored gelatine.
½ teaspoon sunflower or soy lecithin
Lastly, you will need half a teaspoon of sunflower or soy lecithin. Lecithin helps the THC or CBD bind to the gummy bear candy so that each gummy bear contains an equal amount of cannabis.
First, decarboxylate your cannabis. To do this, preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit and spread your cannabis on a baking sheet. Bake the cannabis for about 40 minutes, stirring it every ten minutes. This will activate the THC or CBD in cannabis so that it can be infused into the gummies.
Next, infuse the cannabis into the coconut oil. Put the cannabis and coconut oil in a Crockpot on low heat for six hours. Stir the mixture occasionally. After six hours, strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or coffee filter to remove the plant material from the oil.
Now that you have your cannabis-infused oil, you are ready to make your gummies. Mix the flavored gelatine and unflavored gelatine with the cold water in a medium saucepan. Stir until the gelatines have dissolved.
Add the cannabis-infused coconut oil and lecithin to the gelatine mixture and stir until combined. Pour the mixture into a silicone gummy bear mold and refrigerate for about an hour or until the gummies are firm.
Gummy Edibles Price
One of the best things about marijuana gummies are that they are very affordable. It costs between $15-$20 for 100mgs. You can also find marijuana gummies that are 200mgs for $30. The price will depend on the strength and quality of the gummies.
