Make Cannabis Infused Gummies with Distillate
Making homemade cannabis-infused gummies with distillate is another crowd-pleaser and easy to do, though dosing can be a bit tricky with these tiny treats (more on that in a minute). Check out the simple recipe below:
- 1 Cup Fruit puree or fruit juice
- ¼ Cup water
- 1 ½ Tablespoon of gelatin, or for vegan folks, agar is a fine substitute
- 4 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- ⅛ Teaspoon pink salt
- 1 gram cannabis distillate (pro tip: divide the total milligrams of the distillate by the number of gummies to figure out the approximate dosage per gummy) or use this calculator.
- Heat the fruit puree or juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat
- With puree heating, pour gelatin and water in a bowl and mix until well-dissolved
- When puree reaches a low boil, add granulated sugar and pink salt, then mix until dissolved
- Slowly add the water and gelatin mixture to the puree, stirring constantly, for about three minutes
- Add the cannabis distillate and stir until thoroughly combined to ensure homogenization (if you have a candy thermometer handy, ensure that the fruit puree is below 350 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Pour or scrape your gummy mix into a turkey baster syringe for transfer into the gummy molds. Handle with care, it will be hot!
- Fill the molds and let it sit at room temperature for twenty minutes
- After 20 minutes have passed, place molds in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes or until gummies set
- After the gummies are set, remove them from the mold and toss them with granulated sugar to keep them from sticking
- Voila! Your homemade gummies are ready to eat!
