How to Make Marijuana Gummies

By: Kannabia Seed Company Culture

As the world of cannabis continues to evolve, so does the way we enjoy this versatile plant, and one of the most popular methods of consumption in recent years is through edibles; specifically, gummies. These sweet, chewy treats offer a discreet and convenient way to enjoy the effects of cannabis. In addition, making them at home can be an easy and fun way to integrate marijuana into your day to day. Here’s how to do it!
In recent years marijuana gummies have become extraordinary popular in the United States, now one of the most sought-after forms of cannabis consumption. This phenomenon can be put down to multiple factors highlighting both the evolution of the public’s perception of the plant and breakthroughs in edible manufacturing technology.

Traditionally, cannabis consumption has been dominated by more direct methods, such as smoking or vaping. The rise of THC and CBD in edible formats, however, has revolutionized the way consumers experience its effects. Gummies offer a discreet and accessible alternative for those seeking the therapeutic or recreational benefits of cannabis without the inconvenience of smoke.

The advantages of marijuana gummies

The easy dosing entailed by these small treats allows users to precisely control their cannabis experience, avoiding the risk of over-consumption. What’s more, gummies come in a variety of flavors, strengths and formulations appealing to a wide range of users, making them an appealing option for novices and veterans alike.

Another significant advantage is their portability. Unlike other edibles that may require refrigeration, or suffer from freshness issues, gummies are durable and easy to carry around. This, along with the discretion intrinsic to them, makes them especially popular among those who prefer to consume cannabis inconspicuously.

Advances in food science and technology have also made possible the infusion of cannabis in gummies to be not only effective, but also consistent and safe. The use of techniques such as nanoemulsification means that cannabinoids are absorbed more quickly into the body, making for a more efficient and enjoyable experience.

This combination of technological innovation, discretion and dosage control is what has brought marijuana gummies to the fore on the cannabis market, making them not only a very hot product, but also consumer trend embraced by more and more people.

Homemade marijuana gummies recipe

While you can purchase gummies at most dispensaries (depending on government regulations!), you can also make them right from the comfort of your own kitchen. What’s the best part about making your own cannabis gummies? Well, you can customize them however you want, with your favorite flavors, shapes and colors. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making them with a simple recipe:

Ingredients needed:

  • Cannabis: you can use ready-made CBD or THC oil, or decarboxylate your own cannabis flowers to make an infused oil or butter.
  • Gelatin: you can use packets of flavored gelatin, or a flavorless one if you prefer to add your own.
  • Corn syrup or sugar: this helps to obtain that classic gummy texture and to preserve them longer.
  • Water or fruit juice: to dilute the mixture and facilitate the gelling process.
  • Gummy molds: silicone molds in fun shapes like bears, fruits, etc.
  • Citric acid (optional): to add a tart touch contrasting with the sweetness.

Items required:

  • Small saucepan
  • Kitchen thermometer
  • Whisk or mixing spoon
  • Pipette or dropper to fill the molds
  • Molds for gummies

Preparation process:

  1. Preparation of cannabis oil or butter: If you don’t have cannabis oil or butter prepared, you should first decarboxylate your cannabis by heating it in the oven at a temperature of 115°C for 30 to 40 minutes to activate the THC. Then infuse your oil or butter with it by simmering it for several hours.
  2. Mix the ingredients: in a small saucepan, mix the water or juice with the corn syrup and gelatin. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the gelatin and sugar are completely dissolved.
  3. Monitor the temperature: it is crucial to keep the mixture below 180°F (82°C) to keep the THC from evaporating. Use a cooking thermometer to track the temperature.
  4. Add the cannabis oil or butter: once the gelatin is completely dissolved and the mixture is at the right temperature, add in the cannabis oil or butter. Mix well to ensure that it is evenly distributed.
  5. Fill the molds: use a pipette or an eyedropper to fill the gummy molds with the mixture. Fill up to the rim to ensure that they’re uniform in size.
  6. Refrigerate: refrigerate the molds for at least one hour or until the gummies are completely solidified.
  7. Remove and store: once solidified, remove the gummies from the molds. If you wish, sprinkle them lightly with sugar or citric acid to keep them from sticking.
  8. Storage: place the gummies in an airtight container in the refrigerator, where they should remain fresh for about two weeks.

The importance of dosing

Proper dosing is essential due to the potency of THC and other cannabinoids found in cannabis. Different people tolerate THC to different degrees, which means that an amount that may be moderate for an experienced user might be too much for a novice. In addition, the effect of cannabis when ingested (as in the case of gummies) is more intense and protracted compared to other methods of consumption, like smoking or vaping.

The rule of thumb for beginners is 1 to 5 mg of THC per gummy. Higher doses, such as 15 to 30 mg, are for frequent consumers of edibles; and doses over 50 mg are for medical marijuana patients, or people with THC experience.

Calculating dosage begins with understanding the THC content of the cannabis product you are using, whether it is an oil, tincture or decarboxylated flower. For example, if you are using a cannabis oil that contains 10 mg THC per milliliter and want to make gummies with 5 mg THC each, you’ll need to measure out the right amount of oil to achieve this dosage in each gummy.

Steps to calculate the dosage

  1. Verify the potency of the extract: Check the product label to ascertain its THC concentration per milliliter.
  2. Decide on the per-gummy dose: Choose how many milligrams of THC you want each gummy to have.
  3. Calculate the total THC needed: Multiply the dose per gummy by the total number of gummies you are going to make.
  4. Measure the cannabis extract: Divide the total THC needed by the THC potency of the extract to determine the amount of extract you’ll need to add to the mixture.

Methods to ensure uniform dosing

Once you have the right amount of cannabis extract, the next step is to ensure that it is evenly distributed throughout the gummy mix to prevent variations in potency between the gummies. Some techniques for this are:

  • The use of emulsifiers: add emulsifiers like lecithin to help the cannabis oil mix evenly with the other aqueous ingredients in the recipe.
  • Constant mixing: during the cooking process, be sure to constantly mix the preparation to keep the cannabis oil from separating and settling on top.
  • Checking the mixture: before pouring the mixture into the molds, check again to make sure that everything is well combined.

Additional tips for effective dosing

If you’re experimenting with a new recipe or a new cannabis potency, think about doing a little testing before producing a large number of gummies, to make sure the dosage is right. Also, be sure to label them clearly with the amount of THC they contain, especially if they will be accessible to others.

Accurate dosing not only improves the cannabis gummy consumption experience, but also favors safe and responsible use. By following these steps and tips you can enjoy your own homemade gummies with confidence and control, knowing that each one contains the exact amount of THC you want them to.
