DIY weed gummy recipe (Step-by-Step)

Heat up your double boiler

Start by setting up your double boiler. Fill your bottom pot with water and simmer on medium heat until steady steam forms. Be careful not to let the water boil over to the upper pot.

Add your cooking oil

When you start to see gentle bubbles, carefully add cooking oil to the top pan of your double boiler. Keep a close eye on the oil and make sure it heats evenly.

Bring the oil to boil

Let it simmer for around 2 to 3 hours to make the oil hot and ready to infuse with your cannabis.

Add your decarbed flower

Introduce your decarboxylated cannabis flower to the mixture. The heat is vital for for activating THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Stir gently to ensure even distribution.

Simmer for two to four hours

Let the mixture infuse over low heat for 2 to 4 hours, adjusting the temperature as needed. Don’t set the heat too high, as it can affect the potency. Keep it at a gentle simmer and stir regularly.

Remove from heat

Remove your double boiler from the heat source. Let it sit for a moment to cool, so you’ll have an easier time handling it for the next step.

Strain the mixture

Carefully strain your oil through cheesecloth or a strainer into a clean jar to remove all the plant material. Squeeze out as much oil as possible without tearing the cheesecloth. This step ensures your gummies are smooth and free of bits.

Close the jar and cool

Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature first before you seal the jar. Cooling it down is crucial for stabilizing the infusion.

With the infused oil ready, it's time to find the right recipe.

What Are Weed Gummies?

Weed gummies refer to fruit-flavored candies infused with THC. The gummies have various kinds of flavors in a range of doses. The amount of THC used depends on the user preference, with the most popular low dose being 5mg of THC or less per serving. Using the gummy is also simple, as you only need to pick up a single gummy and chow down. The effects usually pick up in an hour or two.

The popularity of weed gummies stems from their versatility and convenience. They can last for several months, contrary to weed cookies that go stale shortly after you open the package. In this case, occasional edible users can get a package of gummies to last several months without generating waste. This also makes the best weed edible to travel with.

The Benefits of Making Weed Gummies

An increasing number of weed users are looking for ways to make weed gummies at home for several reasons. The major drive is that weed gummies bought from dispensaries usually have dosage limits. Users with higher THC tolerance will find this experience frustrating and costly. The best way to enjoy weed gummies customized for their taste is by using DIY procedures.

Equally important, the method used to consume weed usually results in different experiences. Consuming weed gummies has a longer onset time than smoking due to the duration it takes to enter the bloodstream. However, it results in several benefits over smoking, pushing most weed users today to transition to these chewy little edibles. These include:

  • Potent effects: The body metabolizes the gummy differently from other ways to consume weed. It usually results in a more intense experience for consumers. This occurs since gummies are processed in the liver, and the stomach metabolizes to create compounds called 11-hydroxy-THC, a highly potent cannabinoid.
  • Healthier option: Smoking is not the best or a healthier option for people with lung and respiratory issues. Consuming gummies is the best way to consume weed while sticking to your dietary restrictions.
  • Discreet: Most people fear using weed due to the negativity surrounding it. If clouds of smoke and the pungent odor of smoking weed do not sit well with you, gummies offer a perfect alternative. You only need to place it in your jaw, kept away, and consume it slowly.  
  • Long-lasting effects: Gummies can last an average of 4-6 hours and sometimes longer in low-tolerance users.
  • Variety of flavors: The flavors of weed gummies are endless. You can make any flavor that suits your needs.
  • Precisely dosed: Gummies offer a perfect way to get the right amount of cannabinoids that fit your needs and tolerance. Making them at home allows you to tailor the experience further and achieve the potency you need.
