What are Weed Gummies?

Gummy weed is a type of cannabis edible that is made using gelatin, sugar, and any other ingredient you deem fit. The method you use to make your gummies depends largely on the flavour you want to use. The most common ingredients used for making gummy weed include cannabis, sugar, glycerin, and water. Other ingredients you can add to go with the infused cannabis include flavouring extracts such as vanilla. When you make your gummies, you can also add a sweetener such as honey or sugar. And since these gummies are infused with cannabis, you can either add in some CBD and THC or let the ingredients do the talking entirely.

How to Make Weed Gummies

There are several ways to make gummies and one of them involves using a machine. This is ideal if you want to make large quantities at a time. But if you want to make just a few gummies at a time, making your own cannabis gummy recipe is the best way to go about it. The first step to making your gummies is to soak some sugar in water. Then, you will need to add the cannabis to the sugar water. You can use any type of cannabis for making gummies, but strains with high THC content are best for this process. Next up is to let the infused cannabis sit in the water for several days. “Let it sit” for how long? This depends on the potency of the cannabis you used. Typically, you want to let your cannabis sit in the water for at least 2 days. After the first day, strain out all the ingredients except for the infused cannabis.

The Process of Making Weed Gummies:

Equipment You’ll Need

  1. Saucepan – For heating everything and you can mix all ingredients in one pot.
  2. Whisk – Used for mixing
  3. Funnel/Squeeze Bottle/Dropper – Used to fill the molds easier than just a pour.
  4. Gummy Mold – Any design works, silicone is the best type of mold as it easy to clean and nonstick


  1.   ½ cup cannabis-infused oil
  2.   One Package of Jell-O
  3.   2 tbsp. of unflavoured gelatin powder
  4.   ½ tsp of sunflower/ soy lecithin
  5.   ½ cup cold water


  1. Combine ½ cup of cold water with ½ cup of cannabis infused oil and ½ tsp of sunflower/soy lecithin into the saucepan on low heat
  2. Once all the cannabis infused oils have dissolved. Add in one package of Jell-O with 2 tbsp. of unflavoured gelatin powder, and continue stirring.
  3. Stirring for about 10 to 15 mins so that the gelatin has completely dissolved. Don’t stop mixing as you don’t want the mixture to start boiling. Boiling could prevent the mixture from setting properly. If it does start to boil just take it off the heat. Also if you see white foam just scoop it out and lower the heat. 
  4. At this point it should be all one smooth consistency, you are ready to pour into your molds. You can use a funnel or a dropper would be the easiest method to do so. Another important note is you want this mixture to stay warm so it will prevent binding and hardening.  
  5. Once the molds are filled you want to put it into the freezer for about 30 mins to harden and set. After that remove from mold and let them air dry and there you have it “Homemade Gummies”.

Equipment You’ll Need

  • Canned Goods Container: This is where you’ll store your weed gummies. Any tinned good will do such as food cans, drink cans, or even storage containers. Just make sure they’re not susceptible to rust or moisture.

  • Glass or Bamboo Cooking Pot: A cooking pot is handy if you want to make your gummies in bulk. But you can also use any other utensil like a glass or plastic bowl.
  • Wood Spoons: The flavouring extracts you add to your gummies will depend on the flavour you want to go with. Therefore, you will need a few different types of spoons for the task.
  • Measuring Cup: You’ll also need a measuring cup for measuring the sugar and water.
  • Thermometer: A thermometer will help keep your infused cannabis at the right temperature.
  • Measuring Spoon: The last tool you’ll need is a spoon.
