This recipe is to make the best full spectrum cbd gummies. Here are the tools and ingredients you’ll need to get started:
- 24-cavity food-grade silicone mold
- Liquid dropper
- Heatproof bowl
- Wire whisk
- 6 hibiscus tea bags
- 3 tablespoons (tbsps.) dried fruit powder of your choice
- 4 tbsps. unflavored gelatin
- 1½ tbsps. white sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice (lime juice may also be used)
- 24 dose servings of your preferred CBD oil or tincture
Steps on how to make CBD Gummies
Step 1: Steep the hibiscus tea
Pour the 1 cup of water into the saucepan and bring it to a boil. Place the hibiscus teabags into a bowl and pour in the boiling water. Allow it to steep for 5 minutes before removing the teabags. Measure out ¾ cup of this mixture.
Step 2: Making the gummy base
Into the same saucepan, pour the ¾ cup of tea and combine it with the dried fruit powder, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir the mixture gently with a wire whisk. On medium-low heat, allow the gummy base to simmer, but make sure it doesn’t reach boiling point.
Tip: While doing this, prepare the gelatin mixture as well. Sprinkle the gelatin powder into cold water while stirring. Allow it to set for 5 minutes or until it has bloomed. Then heat the mixture up until it is fully dissolved.
While the gummy base is simmering, add in the gelatin mixture while stirring. Let it sit on medium-low heat until the mixture is smooth and glassy. Make sure not to bring it to a boil as it might make your gummies stringy.
Step 3: Add in the CBD oil or tincture
After removing the gummy base from the heat, stir in the prescribed amount of CBD oil or tincture.
Step 4: Pour the gummy base into the mold
To do this, use the liquid dropper to transfer the gummy base from the saucepan to the mold. Make sure to work quickly since the mixture is starting to set at this point. Once you’ve filled the mold, don’t forget to tap it a few times on a flat surface to remove any air bubbles.
Step 5: Pop the gummies out of the mold
Now that the gummies are set, release them from the mold. Allow them to air dry for 24 hours. After air drying process, they are now ready for consumption! If you’re a sweet tooth, you can also coat your gummies before letting them air dry.
And there you have it! Remember to use quality ingredients and make sure the CBD oil or tincture you’re using is from a reputable brand. As you can see, it doesn’t take much to make CBD gummies within the comfort of your home; it can even be a lot of fun!
