Cannabidiol or CBD for short is a phytocannabinoid (plant compound) produced from the cannabis plant. Legal CBD in the UK comes only from EU approved hemp cultivars that contain 0.2% THC or less. CBD is added to a wide variety of different products. Consumers in the UK and elsewhere can purchase CBD vape pen or CBD e-liquid, CBD oral oil drops, CBD oil, CBD isolate, as well as a wide variety of CBD edibles and other common products.
One of the most popular CBD products today is CBD gummies. CBD gummy treats are the delicious little fruity chewy snacks everyone has grown to love with the added boost of CBD. CBD gummies are available in many different flavours and strengths. If you have tried CBD gummies and love them then you know they also cost a little bit more than regular gummies.
Generally, when things cost a little bit more than we like, we often look to see if there are ways we can do it ourselves to help save money. When it comes to CBD gummies, you're in luck. You can make CBD gummies and CBD Vape oil at home just like the major brands. Sometimes your gummies might turn out a little softer or not quite as good. But, once you get the hang of it chances are you will only want your homemade CBD gummies.
One of the great advantages to making your own CBD Gummies at home is you get to choose the potency of both flavour and CBD. You can make your CBD gummies as sweet, sour, or plain as you like. You are only limited by your imagination. You can combine flavours to create new tastes, or you can stick to the traditional ones. You can add as little or as much CBD as you want increasing the potency of your CBD gummies too! Now that you have a basic rundown of CBD and CBD gummies let's take a look at what you need to make these delicious treats at home.
CBD isolate or CBD oil
Non-stick cooking spray
Jell-O or off brand gelatin
Refrigerator space or a cool area.
Corn starch or sugar
Prep your silicone molds before you get started. Simply spray them lightly with cooking spray to avoid sticking. Begin to mix gelatin as described on the back of the package. Always maintain a low heat and try to constantly stir to avoid coagulation. You will want to add several packages of regular gelatin mix. Usually, two to three boxes of gelatin to one box of Jell-O gelatin mix. The more gelatin you add the stiffer your mixture will become.
It is important to constantly maintain movement and low heat as well as to work quickly and efficiently. Add soy lecithin to your gummies to help with texture. Many people also believe the soy lecithin helps enhance the CBD. Speaking of CBD, now it is time to add CBD to your mixture. The best option is to use CBD isolate powder, more on what is a cbd isolate powder can be found here.
This powder has been ground up extremely fine making it easier to digest and to be dispersed throughout ingredients evenly. You can use as little or as much as you want. Here is an example of how to calculate your results. If the CBD isolate UK you add to your gummy mix tests at 80% CBD per gram that converts to 800 mg of CBD. Divide that by the number of gummies you have to get an estimated dosage.
Now that you have your CBD mixed in with your gummy mixture it is time to grab your turkey baster. You will want to move swiftly and work efficiently because your mixture will start to coagulate and begin to harden. Fill the turkey baster with your CBD gummy mixture and dispense it into your silicone molds. Once you are done put your silicone molds into a refrigerator or cooling environment in order to harden. Now is the best time to clean up your mess. Once the stuff starts to set it is much more difficult to clean up than if you do it now. Make sure to rinse your turkey baster thoroughly so that it can be used again.
After your CBD gummy treats or CBD Edibles have hardened, it's time to pull them out of the silicone mold. This process usually takes roughly 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on temperatures and thickness of the CBD gummies you're making. Once you pull your CBD gummies out of the mold you may want to roll them in a bowl of sugar or lightly dust them with cornstarch to keep them from sticking to one another. All that's left now is to sit back, relax and enjoy some CBD gummy snacks.
When you make CBD gummy treats you probably shouldn't eat them all at one time. This means you're going to want to store some. If you make your CBD gummies to the right consistency, they can be stored at room temperature in a baggie or container for several days. When making CBD Gummies at home, fresh is best. Rather than making a batch to try and last all month, it's better to make one each week or every two weeks even. For prolonged storage of CBD gummy treats simply put them in refrigeration.
CBD gummy treats can be a delicious and economical way for you to enjoy CBD. Making them at home can help cut costs and allow you the freedom of creativity with your CBD gummies. You can try blending flavors together, mixing one flavor letting it set in cool and then adding another one to the top to make two-toned or even three-toned CBD gummies, like a strawberry, banana, cream CBD gummie. You can try different shaped silicone molds such as Lego blocks, animal shapes, or even cannabis leaves. Whatever you choose to do when it comes time to make your CBD gummies, one thing is for sure. If you take the time to perfect your CBD gummy making skills, you'll not only be saving money but everyone who tries them will want to know where you get your gummies from.
