Ever Wondered How to Make CBD Gummies?

Gummies are definitely one of the most delicious ways to enjoy the benefits of cannabidiol, and a lot of people are curious how to make CBD gummies. Well, if curiosity has graced you, and you’re itching to know how gummies are made, you've come to the right place!

In this article we are going to get up-close and personal with CBD gummies! These tasty treats have earned their way into the hearts and homes of millions of Americans and certainly deserve a more detailed understanding.

It's one thing to bite into a gummy and appreciate it simply for its texture, taste, and effect, but when you know what goes into making a gummy, you can truly bask in its complexity.

Think of gummies like a symphony; The music can be immediately satisfying to your ears, but when you've studied the score and know what each and every instrument is doing, you can hear more fully and clearly.

Let’s take a look at what goes into making CBD gummies, how brands differ in their manufacturing process, and how you can make your own!

What Are CBD Gummies?

Though CBD gummies are immensely popular, not everyone knows what they are and what they do. Even those who have heard of CBD gummies often don’t have a full understanding of them.

CBD gummies are similar to traditional gummies in the way they look and taste, but they are a completely different product. CBD gummies are packed with beneficial cannabinoids and many people use them not only as a tasty snack, but as an enjoyable way to stay on top of their general wellness.

CBD vs THC Gummies

Both CBD and THC gummies exist. The use of THC is prohibited throughout the majority of the United States because it is an intoxicating compound. Gummies that are made with high concentrations of THC will cause the user to feel “high”. CBD gummies, on the other hand, won't.

CBD gummies are legally required to contain 0.3% THC or less. This minuscule amount of the psychoactive compound is not nearly enough to make you feel intoxicated in any way. People love gummies because they provide the opportunity to enjoy all of the wonderful benefits of cannabis without experiencing any of the hazy side-effects from THC.

Finding the Perfect Dosage

CBD affects everyone differently. Some people require high doses to feel the benefits, and others only need a very small amount. It's wholly important to find the serving size that works best for you. If you aren't taking enough CBD, you aren't going to experience the full range of benefits it has to offer.

Gummies infused with CBD are 100% non-intoxicating. This means that you can experiment with serving sizes worry-free. CBD gummies also contain pre measured amounts of CBD which makes them perfect for understanding what amount works for you.

Making Your Own Gummies

Once you're familiar with gummies and what dose of CBD works for you, you can try making your own. It may seem like you need a big factory with high-tech equipment to make CBD gummies. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Gummies are incredibly easy to make and can be done with just a few household ingredients. Though your gummies probably won't come out as amazing as some of the big name-brands like CBDfx, you can definitely make some of these tasty treats at home.

What You Need

One of the best things about making your own CBD gummies is that you don't need many ingredients and the ones you do need are readily available. If you don't already have these at home, you can easily acquire them with a quick trip to the store.

Ingredients:

  • Your Favorite CBD Oil
  • 3oz Package of Flavored Jello
  • Gelatine (or Pectin)
  • Liquid Lecithin
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 Teaspoons of Lemon Juice

Putting it All Together

  1. Grab a medium-sized bowl and add ½ cup of water.
  2. Add the gelatine powder while simultaneously whisking it into the water. As the ingredients become thoroughly mixed together, the mixture will become quite thick and difficult to stir.
  3. Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, place the bowl aside.
  4. The next thing you need to do is get your double boiler out and get ready to boil up some gummies. Place the double boiler on the stovetop with water in the bottom pan and the flame set to a medium heat.
  5. In a second pan, bring the remaining ½ cup of water to a boil.
  6. Once you see the bubbles and the water is boiling, you can go ahead and add the lemon juice and jello. Stir in the jello slowly to end up with the proper mixture.
  7. While the jello, water, and lemon juice are cooking, add the CBD infused oil of your choice to the double boiler along with liquid lecithin. Allow them to melt, stirring the entire time.
  8. Mix everything together until its consistency is nice and gummy, then pour the liquid into a gummy mold.
  9. Let the mixture chill in the fridge overnight.
