Gummies (w/wo cannabis)

There are so many recipes online for making gummy treats at home. I pondered how I could make the process more efficient, healthy and with fewer ingredients. For those with disabilities that would still like to make edibles but are limited in what they can do this recipe is for you. Quick, easy and depending on how you dose them could be a months’ worth of medicine. Omit the cannabis and wow the kids with homemade gummies. (Updated Recipe: 2/27/2020)

When using citrus juice, you may need to add an additional teaspoon of gelatin (citrus can be a fickle ingredient!). To achieve a sour gummy without citrus juice make a coating. Mix 1/2 cup of arrowroot powder with 1-3 teaspoons of citric acid. Unmold them into the bowl of the coating mixture and toss until fully coated. Remove excess coating with a salad spinner, dry on parchment for 24 hours and enjoy! 

Any herbal preparation can be used in this recipe. i.e. chamomile.

Divide the total milligrams in your cannabis product by the number of gummies made to calculate the approximate dosage of each gummy.

A glycerin tincture can be subbed 1:1 with the simple syrup. Your desired potency will determine the amount of the glycerin tincture that is used. i.e. change the ingredient amounts to 1/8th cup glycerin tincture and 1/8th cup simple syrup.

An alcohol tincture should only be used in small quantities. Choose a super potent tincture to be able to get the milligrams per dose that you need. If the texture is too thin due to the alcohol tincture add 1 teaspoon of gelatin at a time until the desired viscosity is reached.

No need to grease a silicone mold

If using, add powdered isolate to the dry gelatin and blend thoroughly before adding your liquids.

Can be stored refrigerated/freezer or room temperature (will not last as long).

A high potency CannaOil can be used follow these steps in addition to the recipe.

Use CannaOil in place of the juice, water, etc. and add it after the syrup and gelatin are thoroughly mixed.

After the oil is melted add 1 teaspoon of liquid sunflower lecithin and whisk thoroughly. (If using liquid oil, add the lecithin directly to the oil and stir with a toothpick before adding to the syrup gelatin mixture.)

    • All simple syrup is not created equal. Varying ingredient ratios will need different amounts of liquid lecithin for stability. Start with 1 teaspoon, if after thorough whisking there is oil still separating or floating on top add 1/2 teaspoon more and whisk. I've never had to use more than 2 teaspoons with any of our simple syrups.

Continue with the recipe below.

How To

Grease your desired mold with the pan spray and set aside.

Add gelatin, simple syrup and citrus juice or any beverage into a small saucepan; whisk until hydrated.

Turn heat to low/medium heat and whisk until the gelatin dissolves and it begins to boil. The liquid should look clear when it is fully dissolved. (30-90 seconds).

Add prepared cannabis concentrate, isolate or tincture and whisk thoroughly to distribute evenly.

Turn off heat and pour into your mold.

Place mold in freezer for 5-30 minutes. (I like to put them in my chest freezer to set up. It’s colder and takes less time.)

Pop out; let stand to air dry on parchment for 24 hours and enjoy.
