What Are Weed Gummies?

Weed Gummies are gummy bears infused with THC. You can also use CBD, but for today’s article, we’re focusing on the psychoactive ingredient only.

Recipes for gummies vary between producers, but the active ingredient is typically THC distillate.

This flavourless and odourless concoction is a popular choice for edible makers because it doesn’t leave any weed aftertaste. THC distillate is also inexpensive to make on a large scale.

Extractors use supercritical carbon dioxide to separate the cannabinoids from the plant, resulting in a potent product that is perfect for gummies.

Cannabis tincture can also be used in gummy recipes for those who desire a full spectrum.

While it will have that familiar dank aroma, cannabis tincture also contains a wide array of cannabinoids and terpenes that distillates do not.

Why Create Weed-Infused Gummies?

Cannabis gummy bears are a convenient and popular product. These tasty weed candies can be found in nearly every dispensary in current times. They are a discreet and potent way to take your medicine. They are also fun and simple for recreational users.

Fortunately, you can recreate this experience in the comfort of your home. Creating your own cannabis candy allows you to tailor the strain to your needs. You can also adjust the potency according to your tolerance.

In addition, you can play around with flavours to modify the taste to your liking. This recipe calls for strawberry flavouring. If you have an aversion to strawberries or you’re allergic to them as some of us are, you can explore many other options. Why not try working with cherries or blueberries?

Almost any fruit will do and it’s exciting to tinker with tastes.

What Methods Work & Which Do Not

We’ve been doing some digging into the methods of formulating weed infused gummy bears.

One common infusion for weed gummies is cannabis coconut oil. Cannabis coconut oil can be an option, but it is actually one of the more difficult methods.

Dosing with coconut cannabis oil is not very easy. You may find that the fat of your weed-infused coconut oil starts to surface, and it may start collecting on top of your weed gummies.

This is why we create our cannabis gummy bears with a weed tincture.

Important Tips

Part of this recipe involves preparing your canna-gummy bear mould.

If you can’t find a gummy bear-shaped silicone mould, any small shape will work.

The most important feature of your mould is that it should be made with silicone and the reason why is that silicone is imperative for ease of removal.

If you work with metal or plastic, you may find yourself wrestling to remove your weed candies. They may also end up tearing, sticking, or breaking apart.

The shape of the mould is fun, but it is just for novelty purposes. Any silicone mould for baking will do.

What To Use When Making Gummy Edibles

It’s best to use a silicone mould, and we suggest using the following ideas as well for best outcomes:

If you’re looking to create a gummy for better sleep or helping you to relieve pain, then the first step is picking out the right strain.

You’ll always want to store them in a seal-tight container preferably one that isn’t glass – just keep them dry, dark and covered tightly.

Your cannabis gummy bears look like regular candy. It is important to label your weed edibles accordingly. Always keep out of reach of children.

Store your weed gummy for up to one week.

Even More Benefits To Weed Gummy Bears

We’ve all experienced the ups and downs and stresses of life, right?

When it comes to convenience and ease of use, there’s not much that can compare to weed gummies.

Toss them in your work bag, gym bag, or your pocket!

The best part about THC-infused gummies besides the fantastic taste is that you can get the therapeutic potentials while on the go.

Another benefit of weed gummies is that they won’t leak or spill by accident – which is a common complaint among loyal Cannabis oil users.

  1. So I followed the 1oz of gelatin & then with 1/3oz. The 1 oz definitely worked better. After refrigeration, do you leave them out to air dry to room temp?

  2. Has this recipe been tested using the agar powder?

  3. Do you have a recommendation on how much coconut oil to make this recipe

    1. This recipe asks for cannabis tincture, not coconut oil. If you want to use coconut oil, thats possible too. The amount you want to use completely depends on yourself.

      1. I have medical tincture that is in an MCT Coconut base, at 32mg per 1ml. Can I straight substitute this for into the above recipe?

  4. How many oz./ml is int his recipe? If I know this and % of THC/CBD I can use calculator to determine how many doses at what % I want to make.

    1. The whole gummy batch when taken off the heat is roughly: 150ML in liquid.
      1 gummy bear fits 1.5ML.

      That means you should be able to make 100 gummy bears out of this recipe.

      The dosage depends on your preference. To calculate it, simply make sure how much MG CBD/THC you add to the gummy batch and divide that number between 100 gummies.(or how much gummies you exactly end up with)

      I hope this answer helps.

  5. You have 2 different measurements for the gelatin. The list says 1 oz and the video says 1/3 oz. Which is it?

  6. There are a couple recipe details that differ from your video.
    Tincture Volume:
    Primarily, written recipe = 1 Tbsp Tincture
    Video = 2 Tbsp Tincture

    Water Volume:
    1/2 C vs 1/3 C
    when using strawberries

    If there is a final volume of juice?

    Thank you for your fun video 🙂

  7. Tryin ya surprise my daughter and proove she’s got a cool mom! Can u make gummie bears with cannaBUTTER? I’ve done basic cookies and obviously brownies but want to do gummy style to keep in her purse without to overpowering smell. I hope I don’t sound stupid and I just sound OLD!!! ANY TIPS AND ADVICE VERY VERY WELCOMED!

  8. Can you use MCT Oil Cannabis Tincture to make these? If so what is the trick bc I made them and bc the Tincture is oily, most of the oil floated to the top so I’m sure I lost some mg there…any tips for making them with the oil based Tinctures? Or any other edible ideas that might work for the oil based ones? Thanks! I’m using Curaleaf Tincture which is made with MCT and Cannabis oil if that helps.

    1. Try using lecithin.

  9. How many gummies does this make??

  10. Jenny Haines says:

    What do you use as solvent?

  11. Can i used liqour as the solvent.

      1. Sure, use EVERCLEAR and you may experience in your kitchen a huge KABOOM like I did. Fortunately I had a fire extinguisher within feet of me , Very scary business. I do NOT recommend this method at all. I know what I did wrong but it is so not worth it. Please, don’t. I was lucky my husband didn’t find out even though he came home to no curtains on the window (yea, they went up in flames) Please, please don’t do this. I singed my eyebrows off, too. :- (

      2. What if I was to use 100 proof Smirnoff vodka

  12. Do you think this recipe would work with RSO? And should I dissolve it into the honey first?

  13. It should be mentioned that cooking off Sullivant/isopropyl alcohol like that creates the potential for explosions in your house and that they should take place outside if you’re doing it this way and you should completely pulverize the weed into powder and let it sit in the alcohol for at least 24 hours in the freezer for maximum extraction

  14. Uh…it doesn’t say how long to heat it, or how hot. Do I boil it? Simmer it? 5 minutes? Just to the point of boiling then turn off? What?

    1. Just heat it on medium heat. Like in the video you see It can come to a simmer but its not for to long. The point is that it gets heated so everything will mix in evenly.

  15. Of course it does not have to stay frozen for serving. Lol.
    The freezing is just so your gelatin sets faster. After its deftosts again. They good to go. If you dont wanna freeze it at all. Just put it in the refrigerator. Its just takes a little longer for the gelatin to set.

    1. That was a valid question though because my recipe didn’t turn out right, so mine are frozen only.

      1. Hi Karen. Thanks for trying the recipe! If you defrost them and the gummies are not set. This means that it did not have enough gelatin in it.

  16. Nancy Truhn says:

    Do the gummy bears need to remain frozen for serving?
    Do you have a recipe for more realistic type (not frozen)?

    1. Hi Nancy, No the Gummies do not need to stay frozen, or to freeze at all. The freezer part is just too blast chill it and set the gelatin faster. You can also refrigerate it. It will just take slightly longer for the gelatin to set.
