Marijuana Gummies Recipe

In order to make your own cannabis gummies, you need to have the right ingredients and equipment prepared—this includes cannabis-infused oil. There are various types you can use while making cannabis gummies: cannabis-infused MCT oil, cannabis-infused coconut oil, cannabis-infused butter, or any other type of cannabis-infused oil you prefer. For more insight into how to make your own at home, read our guide to cooking and baking with cannabis.

Before you begin, you'll need the following items:

Equipment:

  • Saucepan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Funnel/squeeze bottle/dropper
  • Gummy mold of your choice

Ingredients

  • ½ cup cannabis-infused oil
  • One package of flavored jello
  • 2 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin powder
  • ½ teaspoon of sunflower/soy lecithin
  • ½ cup cold water

How to Make Marijuana Gummies

Once you’ve gathered your ingredients and equipment, then comes the fun part: actually making the cannabis gummies. So, how are gummy edibles made? We’ve narrowed down the process of making cannabis gummies into five simple steps.
 

Step 1: Combine Water And Cannabis-Infused Oil

First, add ½ cup of cold water, ½ cup of cannabis-infused oil, and ½ teaspoon of sunflower/soy lecithin to a small saucepan and turn it on low heat.
 

Step 2:  Add Gelatin

Once you’ve added the above ingredients to the saucepan, you’ll want to continue stirring the mixture until the cannabis-infused oil is completely melted and a consistent texture has formed. Then, you’ll want to add in the package of flavored gelatin and 2 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin to the mixture and continue stirring.
 

Step 3: Heat On Low

Continue stirring this mixture on low heat for at least 10-15 minutes so that the gelatin can completely dissolve. Do not stop mixing and do not let it come to a boil. Boiling can prevent the mixture from setting properly. If you start to notice a white foam form on top, remove it and lower the heat. All the ingredients at this point should be thoroughly combined and it should be a smooth consistency.
 

Step 4: Fill Gummy Molds

Once all of the ingredients are well combined, then you can start filling up your gummy molds. You can do this with a funnel, a squeeze bottle, or a dropper—whichever you prefer.

You’ll want to keep your saucepan on the heat and work quickly so that the mixture doesn’t get a chance to cool down. If the mixture starts to get cool, the oil will separate, which you don’t want to happen. You’ll also need to continue to whisk the mixture to prevent it from binding and hardening. Remember—the quicker you get your mixture into the gummy molds, the better they’ll come out.
 

Step 5: Freeze

Once your gummy molds are filled, all you have to do is pop them in the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes. After they have hardened to a firm but slightly tacky texture, remove them from the molds and put them on a piece of parchment paper where they can air dry.
 

Adding Cannabis to Non-Infused Gummies

So you know how to make edible gummies, but can you turn regular gummies into edibles?

Yes, the process just looks a little bit different. If you want to turn regular gummies into edibles, you’ll need 2 tablespoons of warm water, 4 ounces of gummies of your choice, ½ teaspoons of gelatin, 1-2 teaspoons of cannabis-infused oil, and a gummy mold.

First, add the gelatin to the warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then add the gelatin mixture to the gummies and microwave it until it melts. Once it’s melted, pour in your cannabis-infused oil and combine. If you have a hard time combining the cannabis-infused oil to the gelatin mixture, add a little bit of lecithin. This will help it emulsify. 

Once you’ve combined all of the ingredients, add the mixture to your gummy mold and place it in your fridge for about 30 minutes. Once they’ve hardened in the freezer, let them sit for an additional 24 hours so the remaining moisture can evaporate. 

If you don’t have the time or resources to make cannabis gummies from scratch, this is a great and affordable alternative.
