How to Make Gummies?

Gummies are the perfect solution for your daily energy boost. They are easy to make, easy to carry around, and deliver all the benefits and come loaded with ingredients like CBD, Melatonin, Ashwagandha, and Vitamin D3. These delicious chewy bites can also be made easily in your kitchen with simple ingredients and can be customized for flavor, sweetness, and potency as per your requirements. Let’s take a deep dive and understand the nuances of making perfect gummies!

What are the Key Ingredients Required for Perfect Gummies?

  • Fruit Juice: Gather your favorite flavor of juice, like apple, orange, guava, cranberry, or tropical; make sure that it doesn’t have added sugar (especially if you want it to fit in your wedding dress!). and also because we will be adding some other natural sweeteners as well.
  • Gelatin: Get some gelatin; without gelatin, it’s impossible to achieve the chewiness that makes gummies fun. Make sure that it’s unflavored because we are already using fruit juice for that. The quality of the gelatine will affect the texture, so choose carefully. You can also use plant-based agar-agar if you want a vegan or vegetarian option.
  • CBD Tincture: Get the highest quality CBD Oil or Tincture from your trusted dispensaries or online retailers; make sure that it’s free from heavy metals and has passed third-party lab tests. The potency of this oil will directly affect the effects of your gummies upon consumption, so choose it with due diligence.
  • Natural Sweetener: Choose a natural sweetener like wild bee honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, or flower nectar, and your pancreas will thank you later. Usually, the gummies available on the market are full of artificial sweeteners, which are not good for health in the long term.
  • Mold: You can easily get fun-shaped silicone molds from Amazon or your nearest supermarket. Get different shapes to increase the fun, or maybe you are a simple person like me and just like them all ar-shaped? Welp, all up to your personal preference.
  • Extras: You can add stuff like melatonin for better sleep, turmeric for anti-inflammatory properties, or maybe chia seeds. This is totally an option; some even add spices of their choice and food-grade colors, once again, totally up to your personal preference.

Now let’s get cooking. The step-by-step process of making gummies at home

Step 1: Prepare the mixture by heating the fruit juice in a pan over low heat.

Step 2: Once the juice is warm, add the sweetener of your choice—I’ll say honey is best—and then stir it until it’s completely mixed with the sugar-free fruit juice.

Step 3: Now slowly add the unflavored gelatine powder to the mixture and whisk it gently to make sure no lumps are left. Make sure to mix it well.

Step 4: Now, once the mixture is properly mixed, take it off the pan and let it cool down for a few minutes.

Step 5: Now add the CBD oil of your choice, be mindful of the quantity, and mix it properly in the mixture. The general rule of thumb is 4 to 8 milliliters.

Step 6: Now fill the silicon molds with this CBD-infused mixture.

Step 7: Put the filled molds in the fridge for a while until the gummies are properly set. Usually, it doesn’t take more than 30 to 45 minutes.

Now, take the mold out of the fridge and remove the gummies; they come off because of the silicon mold. That’s how folks make cbd gummies at home without any hassle; just put on your favorite music and let the magic happen in the kitchen. You can make your monthly supply by putting them in an airtight container in the fridge to maintain their freshness and taste.

Some Important Tips and Tricks

  1. If you see lots of bubbles in the mixture, you can heat it again slightly before pouring it into the mold.
  2. Try to lightly coat the mold with cooking spray before pouring the mixture; this will ensure smooth removal of gummies from the mold.
  3. Sometimes you’ll see bubbles forming on top when pouring the liquid into the mold; just simply scrape them away with a spoon if you don’t like the uneven texture.
  4. If you like the sugar rush, then you can roll the gummies in sweet sprinkles; they are easily available at your nearest supermarket.
  5. You can also add some rum for extra fun—not too much, though.
  6. Some people add citric acid to the mix, which can help balance the flavor and enhance the flavor.

Don’t limit yourself; try different fruit juices and additives. This is a fun activity and hardly takes 1-hour max, so next time you are having friends over for a party, do show them these newly acquired skills, and remember, gummies are always safer than traditional means like lighting a bud or ripping that flower through a bong.
