CBD Gummies Recipe
Here is a recipe to make CBD gummies at home.
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tbsp of lime juice or fresh lemon
- 4 tbsp of unflavored gelatin
- 6 hibiscus tea bags or 1/4 cup of dried hibiscus flowers
- 1-1/2 tbsp of refined white sugar
- 24 doses of CBD-rich tincture or oil**
- 3 tbsp of dried fruit powder (such as raspberry or strawberry)
Step 01: Boil hibiscus tea
Boil some water, then pour it on the hibiscus flowers or tea bags in a hot bowl or cup. Allow 5 minutes for the mixture to steep before straining out the flowers. Measure out 3/4 cup of the tea and dispose of any excess liquid for the CBD gummy.
Step 02: Heat the gummy base on a low flame until it simmers
Fill a small saucepan halfway with 3/4 cup hibiscus tea, sugar, dried berry powder, and lemon juice. Vigorously whisk the mixture until everything is completely combined. Cook this combination in a skillet over low-medium flame. Also, making sure it’s hot but not too boiling.
Gently pour the gelatin mixture into the pot while whisking constantly to fully dissolve the gelatin. Stir the combination over a low-medium flame until the gelatin is completely dissolved and the liquid is shiny and smooth.
Step 03: Incorporate the CBD tincture into the mixture.
Remove from the heat and stir in the CBD-infused tincture until equally distributed. During the mixing process, vigorous whisking may result in foam formation. Although the foam has no impact on the final flavor, some individuals may not like the texture. Moreover, it may also hinder the gummies from being perfectly transparent. To eliminate the foam, allow the gummy mixture to cool and solidify before heating it again gently without stirring. The foam layer will raise to the surface and can be scooped off with a spoon.
Step 04: Transfer the mixture into a mold designed for making gummies.
Put the gummy mold on a baking sheet with rims. Fill the mold carefully with the gummy mixture using a small pipette or spoon. Do keep in mind that the mixture will begin to solidify once removed from the heat, so work swiftly. Eliminate any large bubbles by gently tapping the mold against the countertop or poking them with a toothpick. Refrigerate the gummies until they become firm, which may take approximately 2 hours.
Step 05: Remove the gummies from the mold.
When the gummies have solidified, invert the mold or pop them out from the bottom to remove them. Allow the candies to dry on a wire rack in a well-ventilated area for about 24 hours for a chewier texture.
Step 06: Sugarcoat the gummies.
For a sugar-coated effect on the gummies, pour a small amount of sugar in a bowl. Firstly, add few gummies at a time and then toss them in the sugar until they are fully coated. Let them air-dry on a wire rack for an hour before keeping them.
