I don’t know about you, but to me, some commercial CBD-gummies leave a lot to be desired! Some have sugar (don’t want), some have artificial colors (don’t want) and some have all sorts of artificial additives, fake sweeteners, and preservatives (don’t want). So, here is a simple, natural recipe for homemade CBD gummies. You can use any molds you want and make gummy bears, gummy hearts or a variety of gummy shapes. These CBD gummies can be used just like you would use the commercial gummies—to help with sleep, anxiety, depression, or pain. Keep these away from children under the age of 16 unless under the advice of a healthcare professional.
I like to keep my life as simple as I can—never works, but I do try, so this calls for only 4 ingredients:
Heat 1 cup of your favorite fruit juice in a saucepan. Turn off the heat once the juice begins to steam and add 2 tablespoons of gelatin and 2 tablespoons of honey. Stir until everything is well mixed—you can stir while using low heat but make sure you turn off the heat as soon as everything is well-mixed. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add 2 mL of your oil or tincture while stirring—this usually means 2 dropperfuls but for reference 2 dropperfuls is 2/5th of a teaspoon. I know—I don’t have spoons that measure 1/5th teaspoonfuls, but don’t worry, if you go with ½ a teaspoon of CBD oil or tincture, that will work.
If you are adding your CBD isolate, stir until all the CBD dissolves or is equally dispersed throughout (CBD isolate is fat-soluble and may not dissolve very well. Again, no worries as long as it is well-mixed)
Pour immediately into your chosen mold—don’t overfill! Add enough to mostly fill the mold. Place the molds into your refrigerator to set for about 30 minutes. Remove and store in baggies! You may want to put a piece of parchment paper in between each gummy so they don’t stick together. You can also freeze the gummies though they don’t always look great when you take them out—they still taste great. These gummies should be good in your refrigerator for at least 2 weeks and good in the freezer for up to 6 months.
For most molds, you should end up with about 30 gummies with this recipe.
