People have been asking me lately if there are easy recipes for crafting your own THC-infused gummies — hazy Haribos, sativa Sour Patches. Turns out that tokers are sick of buying weed-infused candy from bodegas, as that shit is usually made with Delta-8 instead of real weed… and it will give you the runs!!!
So below, we have an easy peasy recipe for ganja gummies.
To make cannabis gummies, you first need cannabis-infused oil. This good stuff can be made with MCT oil, coconut oil, butter, or other fat-soluble ingredients that won’t make your candy taste like soap.
Once you’ve made cannabis oil via decarboxylation, the rest is fairly easy. All you need is the following in terms of gear:
- Mixing bowl
- Sauce pan
- Funnel or dropper
- Gummy mold
- Whisk (obv)
And the following ingredients:
- ½ cup cannabis-infused oil
- Jello pack
- Unflavored gelatin powder
- sunflower/soy lecithin
Now follow these 5 easy steps and you’ll be good as Gold(bears).
Step 1: Mix THC Oil with Water
Add the following into a smallish saucepan:
- ½ cup of water
- ½ cup of THC oil
- ½ teaspoon of sunflower and/or soy lecithin
Mix and turn it on low heat
Step 2: Add Gelatin
Once the mix is simmering in the sauce pan, stir that shit. Hurricane wrists.
Keep whipping until the THC oil is totally melted and the ingredients have a consistent texture. At this point, add in the pack of flavored gelatin + a couple extra tablespoons of unflavored gelatin for padding.
Step 3: Heat (on Low!)
Keep stirring on low heat for at least 10 min. The gelatin needs to completely dissolve. Do not let this shit boil, dammit! It will prevent your shit from setting right. Same goes for foam – don’t let it form! Lower the heat a lil if you see foam.
Keep mixing until this is all one smooth consistency.
Step 4: Fill Gummy Molds
Once all this shit is combined and one solid texture, you can fill your gummy molds via funnel, dropper, etc. We recommend penis-shaped molds or Grateful Dead bears.
Make sure the heat is still on low, otherwise the mixture will get cold, harden, the oil will separate, and you’re fucked. So keep the heat on, keep the hurricane wrists moving, and get them shits into the molds the moment the ingredients are fully mixed in the sauce pan.
Step 5: Freeze Those Fuckers
Once the molds are filled, just put that shit in the freezer… simple. 30 min should do the trick, but it could take up to an hour. After, just remove them from the molds, put them on wax paper, let ‘em air dry, and boom… you now have weed gummies.
