How To Make Marijuana Gummies
Gummies are the perfect way to take marijuana. They’re discreet, delicious and easy to make! If you’ve got some edibles laying around that need a little love, or if you’d like to try your hand at making cannabis-infused gummies at home without buying any expensive equipment (or even having any), then this is the guide for you. We’ll walk through everything from decarboxylating your weed and making canna-oil to mixing all ingredients in a blender and pouring into molds before freezing and storing them in the fridge. For those with more advanced skillsets: feel free to experiment with different ratios of cannabinoids (THC vs CBD) or other ingredients!
1. Decarboxylate your weed
Decarboxylating your weed is the process of heating your marijuana to activate THC. Decarboxylation is required for edibles and making gummies, so it’s a must-do step if you want to take an active role in enjoying your own gummies.
The decarboxylation process only takes about 15 minutes, and it’s pretty simple:
- ) Preheat oven to 250°F (121°C) on convection setting (if available) or 300°F (148°C) in regular oven
- ) Place 1/4 ounce of ground cannabis into small baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil lining bottom
- ) Bake for 20-25 minutes until fully dried out
2. Make a canna-oil
- In a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl set over simmering water, combine the butter and coconut oil. Heat until melted, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and let cool.
3. Mix all ingredients in a blender, then pour into molds
In a blender, mix together warm water and the gelatin powder until it’s completely dissolved. Then add your cannabis-infused coconut oil and honey to the blender. (If you don’t have cannabis-infused coconut oil, combine two tablespoons of butter with one tablespoon of ground marijuana.)
Mix everything well for about 60 seconds and pour into your molds. Make sure that your mold has a flat bottom so that it will stand up straight when filled with liquid gummies! If you don’t have silicone molds, try using plastic bottles like these Smartwater ones or these baby food jars instead: just make sure they have tight-fitting lids before filling them up with watermelon pink liquid gold!
Once all ingredients are mixed together in the blender and poured into molds, refrigerate until firm!
4. Freeze for 30 minutes to allow the mixture to set, then store in fridge.
After 30 minutes, the gummies should be set and ready to eat. If you want to keep them longer than a few days, store them in the freezer instead of at room temperature. You can also save some for later by wrapping them in plastic wrap and storing them in an airtight container or resealable bag.
The shelf life of homemade marijuana gummies is about two weeks if kept refrigerated, but only lasts as long as three months when stored at room temperature. The shelf life depends on how well you followed the recipe—if it’s too watery or too thick then it will spoil sooner than usual!
You now have a delicious, potent gummy that is infused with your favorite herb. These delicious treats are the perfect way to get high without smoking or vaping. They’re fun and easy to make at home, so make sure you try out some of these recipes today!
