What You Will Need
- 1/4 cup infused coconut oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 6 oz flavored gelatin
- Four 1/4 oz packets of unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 tsp lecithin (powder or liquid)
Before you start, make sure your workspace is clean and organized. Set your gummy molds on a cookie sheet so they are easy to move. Then spray them with a non-stick cooking spray.
Bring the water, canna oil, and lecithin to a boil in a small saucepan. Whisk until fully combined. Bring to a boil over high heat. When the mixture begins to bubble, turn up the heat to medium-high for a rolling boil.
Add the unflavored gelatin in a slow, steady stream while whisking continuously. Whip continuously! When the unflavored gelatin has been combined in, add all of the flavored gelatin while whisking. On medium-high heat, whisk for about 1 minute until completely homogeneous.
Reduce the heat source to low while whisking. Bubbling but not boiling is the right temperature. Begin filling your molds as soon as possible, working quickly. Stir the mixture every now and then to ensure that it is properly combined. Because the gelatin sets quickly, the mixture will gradually get thicker and thicker as it does so, so you only have a short time to fill the molds.
Place the gummies in the freezer or refrigerator and allow the gummies to set for 20 minutes to an hour. Once hardened, remove from the molds and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy one at a time!
How to Make Gummy Edibles FAQ
Can you make gummy edibles without lecithin?
Lecithin is necessary for making gummy edibles. It is a stabilizer and an emulsifier that help to ensure the even distribution of your cannabis oil throughout the mixture.
How long are homemade gummy edibles good for?
You can store it for up to 6 months in the freezer.
Can you melt gummies to make edibles?
Yes! You may turn your gummies into a cannabis-infused edible by melting them. The gelatin has a melting point of about 95 degrees Fahrenheit, well below the threshold for THC to lose its effect.
How much should gummy edibles be?
The starting dose should be between 2.5 and 10 mg. Always consume edibles slowly to allow the THC or CBD to take effect.
What is a substitute for lecithin?
Lecithin is an emulsifier used in food to mix water with oil. Sunflower lecithin, egg yolks, dairy products, mustard, and honey are all good substitutes for liquid soy lecithin. Xanthan gum and agar-agar are alternatives to soy lecithin powder.
