CBD edibles are quickly gaining popularity as a delicious and convenient way to enjoy the health benefits of cannabidiol. If you’re looking for an easy and fun way to reap the rewards of this amazing compound, then making your own CBD gummies is a great option. Here are some simple tips on making the best CBD edibles at home using only natural ingredients.
1. Choose Your Ingredients
The first step in making homemade CBD gummies is to choose your ingredients. You will need a mix of fruits, juices, and vegetables, all with no added sugar or preservatives. Some popular combinations include mango and pineapple; apples, blueberries, and spinach; or kiwi, oranges, and coconut milk. You’ll also need your desired high-quality CBD oil or isolate powder dosage for each recipe. Be sure to measure out the correct amount of each ingredient according to the recipe instructions before proceeding!
2. Prepare The Molds
Once you have all your ingredients ready to go, it’s time to prepare the molds for shaping your gummies into their final form – bear shapes are always especially popular! To do this, lightly grease silicone bear molds with vegetable oil before pouring in a combination of unflavored gelatin and cold water (following the recipe instructions). Then leave them in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes until firm enough for shaping into individual bears.
3. Add The Fruit Or Veggie Puree
Now it’s time to add some color and flavor! Take any fruit or veggie puree that you’ve prepared (again following the recipe instructions) and carefully spoon it into each cavity of the bear molds until they’re filled up about halfway full – this should give you around 8-10 bears per batch depending on size. Once filled up with puree mixture, place them back in the refrigerator for another 10 minutes until fully set.
4. Mix In The CBD Oil Or Isolate Powder
Once your bear molds are set with puree mixture, remove them from the refrigerator and carefully sprinkle in an even layer of either CBD oil or isolate powder across each one – being sure not to use too much so that it doesn’t overpower the flavor of your homemade treats! Give them one last stir with a fork before moving on to step 5…
5. Pour On The Liquid Gelatin Mixture
Next comes what makes these special treats unique – liquid gelatin! Carefully pour equal amounts over each mold until they’re completely covered but not overflowing (this part can be a little tricky!). Place them back in the fridge for another 10 minutes until fully cooled off again before popping out each bear onto parchment paper lined baking sheet(s). Allow them plenty of room since they will expand once warm temperatures hit them during baking process.
6. Bake & Enjoy!
Finally we get down to business – baking! Preheat oven between 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit depending on preference then place tray(s) inside for around 10 minutes until golden brown on top (not burned!). Remove from oven when done then allow cooling off period before enjoying delicious homemade vegan-friendly CBD gummy bears made with love by YOU at home! Enjoy!!
7. Refrigerate For Later Use
