CBD gummies are a new favorite way for medical marijuana patients to treat themselves thanks to their simplicity. These candies come in a plethora of flavors, taste great and bring as much relief as any CBD or medical marijuana product can. Here’s how to go about making them yourself.
CBD gummies are much easier to make than, say, CBD brownies, as you don’t have the lengthy process of infusing CBD into butter. You simply add CBD tincture to the gummy mixture while you’re making it.
You can use many fruits, but for this example we will use strawberries. Start off by blending them into a puree, enough to fill 2/3 of a cup.
Add the pureed strawberries along with a 1/3 cup of water, two tablespoons of honey and one tablespoon of lemon juice into a saucepan and begin to simmer the mixture on a low to medium heat. After a couple of minutes, take a couple of teaspoons of your CBD tincture, add it to the mix and then fully stir it in.
You’ll need a substance to help solidify the gummies, so stir in three tablespoons of gelatin, preferably grass fed. The mixture may be a little lumpy, so ensure that you keep whisking until it is fully smooth. Then take a silicon mold and carefully pour in the CBD-infused gummy mix before placing them in the fridge or freezer to cool off.
The only advice worth imparting concerning CBD gummies is that which is applicable to CBD and marijuana edibles in general. Edibles are much slower in taking effect than vaping or smoking is, so don’t fret if your usual dosage is slow to have an impact. You can always consume more later on if need be, but the chances are you won’t need to!
