Edibles are a popular way to consume cannabis, and gummies are a classic option that can be enjoyed by many. In this blog post, we will show you how to make edible gummy worms at home using simple ingredients and equipment. Whether you’re new to making edibles or a seasoned pro, this recipe is easy to follow and customize to your liking.
Ingredients and Equipment
To make edibles gummy worms, you will need the following ingredients:
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of corn syrup
1 package of gelatin (3 oz)
1 package of Jell-O (3 oz)
1/2 teaspoon of citric acid
1/2 teaspoon of cannabis tincture or oil (optional)
Gummy worm molds
Measuring cups and spoons
Step 1: Prepare the Gummy Worm Molds
First, spray the gummy worm molds with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place them on a flat surface where they won’t be disturbed while the gummy mixture sets.
Step 2: Mix the Ingredients
In a saucepan, mix the water and corn syrup over low heat. Add the gelatin, Jell-O, and citric acid, and whisk until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
If you want to add cannabis to your gummy worms, add the cannabis tincture or oil to the mixture and stir well.
Step 3: Heat the Mixture
Once the mixture is well combined, increase the heat to medium and stir frequently until the mixture is hot but not boiling. You should see steam rising from the mixture but no bubbles.
Step 4: Pour the Mixture into the Molds
Using a measuring cup or a spoon, pour the hot mixture into the gummy worm molds, filling them to the top.
Step 5: Let the Mixture Set
Let the mixture set in the molds for at least 30 minutes or until the gummies are firm and set.
Step 6: Remove the Gummies from the Molds
Carefully remove the gummies from the molds by gently pulling on the sides of the molds. If the gummies are sticking, try spraying the molds with more cooking spray.
Step 7: Store the Gummies
Store the gummies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Customizing Your Gummy Worms
The great thing about making your own edibles gummy worms is that you can customize them to your liking. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Flavor: Experiment with different flavors of Jell-O and gelatin to create unique flavor combinations. You can also add fruit juice or puree for a more natural flavor.
Texture: If you prefer chewier gummies, add more gelatin to the mixture. If you like softer gummies, use less gelatin.
Potency: Adjust the amount of cannabis tincture or oil to your desired potency. Start with a small amount and increase it gradually until you find your ideal dosage.
Shape: You don’t have to stick to gummy worms! You can use any shape of silicone mold you like, such as bears, hearts, or stars.
When it comes to edibles, the dosage is important. The potency of your gummy worms will depend on the amount of cannabis tincture or oil you use and how evenly you distribute it in the mixture. It is recommended to start with a low dosage and wait at least two hours before taking more.
It is also important to label your edibles with the dosage and keep them out of reach of children and pets.
Making edibles gummy worms at home is a fun and easy way to enjoy cannabis. With the right ingredients and equipment, you can customize your gummies to your liking and find your perfect dosage. Have fun experimenting with different flavors, textures, shapes, and potency levels! Enjoy!
