Do-It-Yourself CBD Gummy Bears: A Step-By-Step Guide

CBD gummy bears recipe

Do you know that you can make your own CBD gummy bears with only a few ingredients?

Excitingly, you can make CBD gummy bears with very few ingredients. Fortunately, it is your choice to make these CBD gummies with either fruit juice  or with jello (flavored gelatin). No matter what method you choose, this CBD gummy recipe is easy to follow.

Interestingly, CBD gummy bears are one of the most popular CBD edibles at the moment. Moreover, we receive more interest in CBD gummies than CBD chocolate. These bears make excellent party favors. They are also customizable through food coloring and molds.

What do I need to create CBD gummy bears?

To make these weed gummies you will require CBD oil or a CBD tincture, jello, gelatine, and gummy bear molds.

How do I make CBD Oil or CBD tinctures?

Firstly, to make this recipe, you will need to either make your own, or purchase CBD oil or a CBD tincture.

To make your own CBD oil you will need 1/4 ounce of CBD bud, 1 teaspoon of sunflower lecithin, and one cup of oil.

Now, breakup your CBD strain and crumble it onto a baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil and place in the oven at 237F/115c for 25-45 minutes. Next, finely chop your CBD bud and place in a mason jar. Add 1 teaspoon of sunflower lecithin and 1 cup of oil. Seal, and place jar in cool water. Bring this water to a boil for 2-3 hours. Let the CBD infusion cool. Strain your CBD oil through cheesecloth into a new jar. Voila! This is CBD oil.

If you prefer, you can make a CBD tincture instead of CBD oil. This process involves using high proof alcohol. Check out our CBD tincture recipe.

How do I get my CBD gummy bears to be different colors?

If you would like your gummies to be different colors, you can use food coloring. It is best to color your gummies using a small dropper. Simple use the dropper to suck up less than a rice size amount of coloring, and add it to the individual gummy mold. Repeat this process for each mold using your desired colors. Remember, jello is already coloured. If you are creating multiple trays, you can simply change up the color of jello that you are using.

  13. Memengwaa says:

    can you add the cbd oil to it separately or does it need to be added when “cooking” the gummies?

  14. I tried this but my oil separated. What did I do wrong?

  15. 5 stars

    How long do recommend setting them in the molds before removing?

    1. It usually takes about 2 hours in the refrigerator. But you will clearly see when they are set. You can always take 1 out and test

  16. How long before these expire? I don’t want to make a large batch, only to have them go bad in a few days.

    1. Thank you for your comment Shelly!

      The gummies in the text recipe are made with packaged jello, therefore these gummies if stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container, it stays good up to 2/3 weeks!

      The gummies in the video are different. They are made with fresh fruit juice. And only stays good up to 5 days in the refrigerator. One can freeze them and it stays good up to 3 months.

        Thank you so much for this recipe. I used 2 tablespoons from my own green dragon tincture made from alcohol. The gummies turned out so cute!
