THC gummies have become increasingly popular in recent years as a discreet and convenient way to consume THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis. These gummies are often infused with THC oil, which is extracted from the cannabis plant and used to make a wide variety of edibles.
However, it’s important to follow a guide when making THC gummies to ensure safe and effective consumption. Without proper guidance, it’s easy to accidentally consume too much THC, which can lead to unwanted side effects such as anxiety, paranoia, and dizziness. In this article, we’ll provide a 5-step guide that anyone can follow to make their own THC gummies at home.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
- THC Oil is the key ingredient in THC gummies, as it provides the psychoactive effects of the cannabis plant. You can purchase pre-made THC oil from a licensed dispensary or make your own using cannabis flower, carrier oil, and a stove or oven.
- Gelatin s is what gives gummies their chewy texture. You can find unflavored gelatin in the baking section of most grocery stores.
- To give your gummy flavour, you’ll need to add fruit juice or concentrated flavouring. You can use any type of fruit juice or flavouring that you like, but it’s important to choose one that complements the taste of the cannabis oil.
- Corn syrup is used to add sweetness and texture to the gummies. You can also get THC Gummies from TRĒ House.
Step 2: Prepare THC Oil
Decarboxylate the cannabis flower
Preheat your oven to 220°F (105°C) and spread the cannabis flower on a baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes to activate the THC and other cannabinoids.
Infuse the cannabis into the carrier oil
Heat the carrier oil (such as coconut oil or vegetable glycerin) and cannabis flower in a slow cooker or double boiler for several hours. Strain the oil through a cheesecloth to remove any plant matter.
Step 3: Make Gummy Mixture
Step 3 in making THC gummies is to make the gummy mixture. Here’s a recipe for making a basic gummy mixture:
- 1 cup fruit juice or flavoured liquid
- 3 packets of unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 1/4 cup THC oil
- In a saucepan, heat the fruit juice or flavoured liquid over medium heat until it comes to a simmer.
- Add the unflavored gelatin to the saucepan, one packet at a time, whisking continuously until the gelatin has dissolved.
- Add the corn syrup to the saucepan and whisk until fully combined.
- Add the THC oil to the saucepan and whisk until fully combined.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
- Use a funnel to pour the gummy mixture into the candy moulds.
- Chill the gummies in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Step 4: Combine THC Oil and Gummy Mixture
- Place the THC oil in a heat-safe container and warm it in a microwave or on the stove until it becomes liquid.
- Pour the warmed THC oil into the saucepan with the gummy mixture and whisk until fully combined.
- Use a funnel to pour the THC gummy mixture into the candy moulds.
- Place the filled candy moulds into the refrigerator and allow them to cool for at least 30 minutes, or until the gummies have set.
Step 5: Mold and Store THC Gummies
- Remove the gummies from the moulds: Once the gummies have been set, gently press the back of the candy mould to release the gummies.
- If desired, coat the gummies in granulated sugar or citric acid to enhance the flavour.
- Store the gummies in an airtight container in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Proper storage is essential for maintaining the freshness and potency of your THC gummies.
