Chewing gum is one of those things that can help to keep us away from habits that we’re trying to avoid like nail-biting or smoking, and it tastes absolutely delicious, but it’s not often something that we think about making from scratch at home. However, most bubblegum also doesn’t come with a super potent cannabinoid ingredient THC, and that alone is enough to motivate anyone to try this unique combination.
Add the gum base ingredients including beeswax and honey to a double broiler, and then turn the burner on to medium heat.
Stir the ingredients until they are all thoroughly melted and combined. At this point, if you don’t want plain-looking bubblegum, you can even toss in a few drops of food colouring.
Once the ingredients are melted, add the flavouring, mix the gum once more, and then the broiler can be removed from the burner to avoid scalding.
Set aside 1 tablespoon of the icing sugar, and then you’ll need to create a volcano with it by dumping it onto a clean surface or cutting board and using your fingers to create a well in the middle.
Pour the gum mixture into the well, and carefully use your fingers to work the icing sugar into the liquid ingredients.
Knead the ingredients for either 15 minutes or until the gum is soft, stretchy, and it loses its stickiness.
Use your hands to roll the chewing gum into a long log, and if you want square pieces, then you’ll need to press the tube into four equal sides so that it’s a rectangle.
Once you’re happy with the shape, use a sharp knife to cut away individual pieces.
