CBD Gummies – What Are They And Can You Make Them At Home?

CBD has fast become one of the most popular supplements out there. Part of the reason for this is that it has incredible versatility, being used in everything from the loose-leaf for dry herb vaping to being an alternative vape juice to the many e-liquids with nicotine UK. Cannabidiol is becoming ever more popular in cafes and health shops too, being sold as concentrated shots for your coffee and as part of a balanced supplement intake. 

All of this just goes to show how revolutionary and shapeshifting cannabidiol can be as both a recreational pleasure and as a symptom reliever. As the former, however, cannabidiol has truly excelled. The many forms of edibles out there containing CBD have surpassed that of the prohibited cousin of cannabidiol – THC – and have paved the way for unique new recipes and use for the terpene. One such edible that has proved particularly popular is the CBD gummy, a sweet that utilises the nuanced taste of cannabidiol and the satisfying chewy sweetness of gummy bears. What’s more, you can make this terrific product at home! 

What Are CBD Gummies?

CBD gummies are sweets that also have CBD oil inside them. Cannabidiol oil is made from a concentrated strain of the cannabis plant and includes a range of unique benefits including relaxation, symptom relief from conditions such as arthritis and psoriasis and is also used as a sleep aid and anti-anxiety relief. 

What You Need To Know About Edibles

CBD gummies are the perfect recreational pick me up, whether to keep you relaxed through the day or to quell any pain that you might have. CBD gummy bears are easy to make and can be great tasting too, especially with subtle undertones of hempy flavour. 

How CBD Is Processed In the Body

It’s important to remember that if you’re looking for a quick CBD hit, CBD edibles might not be for you. This is because they are slowly broken down by the body and the CBD processed by the liver. This can take more than two hours depending on your metabolism, and so it’s important to bear in mind the wait before you feel its effects. 

Making Your Own CBD Gummies

The intensity of the CBD effects will also differ depending on the concentration of CBD oil you use. This is why we recommend that you use about 2 ml of CBD oil that is over 1000 mg per bottle.

Step 1

Take about 300 ml of 100% fruit juice and heat it in a saucepan on a light simmer. Whisk in honey and gelatin mixture until it has a thick consistency. You’ll want to stir the mixture for about a minute until the ingredients combine together. 

Step 2

Next up, add your CBD oil into the mixture. Again, you’ll want this to mix in properly with the gelatin, fruit juice and honey, so stir for another minute or so until it’s fully blended. 

Step 3

It’s now time for the fun part – pouring the mixture into the moulds. Whether you’re going for gummy bears, hearts or just circles, pour the mixture from a pitcher to avoid overspilling. After you’ve filled each of your moulds, place the tray in the fridge for about an hour or so. After this, your CBD gummies will be ready to eat!
