CBD gummies are a flavorful way to get your daily CBD. In this simple guide, we show you how to make your own tasty CBD gummies at home.
Like with many vitamins and supplements, gummies are a trending way to add CBD to your system, thanks to their delicious taste and ability to use them without needing a beverage to wash them down. Brands like Dixie Botanicals® offer CBD gummies to customers in a range of flavors, making it easy to use CBD each day.
But what if you have dietary restrictions or just want some control over the ingredients of your CBD gummies? With a few easy to follow steps, you can make your own custom CBD gummies at home.
Benefits of CBD Gummies
CBD gummies offer a convenient way to incorporate the balancing benefits of CBD into your day. They are quick, easy, and delicious, so doing something good for yourself is enjoyable. How often do you get to say that?
CBD helps the body work at its peak levels. This all natural and non-intoxicating cannabinoid derived from cannabis plants like hemp supports the performance of your endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for keeping your body in balance.
Once you eat a CBD gummy, the compound is delivered from the digestive system to the bloodstream, where it can interact with cannabinoid receptors found on cells in the peripheral nervous system, immune system, and the central nervous system.
By interacting with these receptors, CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system and supports its efforts to keep the body’s functions running at their best.
There are various types of CBD supplements out there, and gummies can be an ideal choice for those looking for a convenient, flavorful, and portable way to get their daily CBD. Keep reading to learn how to make your own CBD gummies with CBD oil or CBD isolate.
Making CBD Gummies at Home
It takes little time or effort to make your own CBD infused gummies at home. By making your own CBD edibles, you can have total control over the CBD potency of your gummies, as well as the ingredients used to make them.
Some recipes for CBD gummies use Jello mix to flavor the gummies. Our recipe uses fresh fruit and fruit juice, because if you are doing something good for yourself, then fresh, natural ingredients are a must.
Infusing homemade gummies with CBD is easy thanks to RSHO™ CBD Isolate, a fine white powder containing 99% pure CBD. This pure crystalline CBD has no flavor or odor, so it’s perfect for making great tasting gummies. Our CBD isolate comes in a 1-gram jar, so you have enough to increase the CBD concentration of your gummies.
When deciding how much CBD isolate to add into your gummies, keep in mind that each milligram of pure crystalline contains about a milligram of CBD. The recipe below makes about 50 gummy bear sized gummies. That means you can infuse 5 mg CBD into each bear sized gummy by using 250 mg of CBD isolate. You can increase or decrease the amount of CBD isolate to meet your own individual CBD needs without affecting the recipe, so feel free to customize.
If you prefer full spectrum CBD gummies, you can replace the CBD isolate with RSHO™ Gold pure hemp oil. Full spectrum hemp oil contains all the same nutrients, terpenes, and cannabinoids that are in the hemp plant. This allows for the entourage effect, a collaboration in the way these compounds interact with the body.
Each gram of full spectrum RSHO™ Gold hemp oil contains 240 mg of CBD, about the same as a quarter gram of CBD isolate. When using full spectrum hemp oil to make your CBD gummies, be sure the thick oil is fully mixed with your water and gelatin to ensure even CBD in each gummy.
While it is possible to make CBD gummies with MCT or coconut oil based CBD oils, these products will often cause the gummies themselves to taste and feel oily, so it is not recommended.
Note: The CBD gummy recipe below makes orange-flavored chews. If you have a favorite fruit flavor you’d like to use instead, you can replace the orange juice and lemon juice below with 1/2-2/3 cup of your favorite fruit pureed and ½ cup water.
Here is how to make CBD gummies:
Here’s what you’ll need:
- RSHO™ CBD Isolate or Gold CBD hemp oil
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons gelatin, unflavored
- Silicone mold of choice
- Place the silicone mold onto a cookie sheet and set aside.
- Combine all of the ingredients, minus the gelatin and CBD, into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Use a whisk to mix the ingredients together.
- Slowly and gradually whisk gelatin into the mixture, stirring constantly to avoid clumping. Continue stirring until the gelatin is completely melted and the mixture’s consistency is smooth.
- Slowly add in the CBD isolate or CBD Gold hemp oil, stirring constantly until combined thoroughly. Turn off the heat.
- Pour the CBD infused mixture into the silicone mold. Place the cookie sheet and mold into the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
- Remove the silicone mold from freezer and pop out each of the gummies.
- Store your CBD infused gummies in an airtight container in a refrigerator. They will stay fresh for 2-3 weeks.
If you don’t have a silicone mold for your gummies, you can also pour the CBD infused mixture into a lightly greased baking sheet. Once the mixture hardens, use a knife or cookie cutters to cut out gummies to your desired shape and size.
These CBD gummies are gluten free, and by swapping out the gelatin for an animal friendly alternative like agar-agar powder, the recipe can be made vegan as well. So regardless of your diet, this CBD gummies recipe can be made to adapt to it.
