CBD has become much more popular in recent years and for good reason. It is filled with so many beneficial properties and can help when it comes to stress or if you are looking to improve your overall well-being.
Edibles are an easy and delicious way to get your daily dose of CBD. If you are looking for a DIY project to make your own edibles then CBD gummies are a great place to start.
What are CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies are a type of edible with their active ingredient being CBD. Cannabidiol is the full name for CBD, a compound found in the hemp plant. CBD can be taken in a variety of ways from oils, to capsules, and even in gum. To make CBD gummies they must be infused with CBD oil.
CBD has been shown to be helpful in improving many health conditions and improving many people’s sense of wellness. However, there is more research that needs to be done to understand the full effects of ingesting CBD and what types of conditions it can help with.
It’s important to speak with your doctor to see if CBD is right for you. CBD is becoming more popular and is increasingly easier to find, but It is also a good idea to do your own research about whether CBD is legal in the area you live.
Benefits of CBD Gummies
Aside from the health benefits of CBD gummies such as helping to promote a sense of relaxation and well-being in the body, there are several benefits to making your own CBD gummies. When you make your own edibles you can create them to suit your unique needs and body. You also know how strong they are and the precise ingredients used. It’s also generally a more budget-friendly option compared to buying them in a shop.
With making CBD edibles at home most people hesitate because they aren’t sure how. But it’s simpler than you think.
Making CBD Gummies
As we said before, it’s quite easy to make your own CBD gummies. Using four natural and simple ingredients you can create your homemade CBD gummies.
The ingredients for this recipe include:
- CBD drops – you can use whichever concentration you prefer that is right for your body
- 1 Tablespoon of Honey
- 1 package of Unflavored gelatin (about ½ cup) – preferably grass-fed for the added health benefits
- 1½ cups of fruit juice) -if you are looking to avoid added sugar make sure your fruit juice is 100% juice
To begin, gather all the ingredients. In order to make the gummies, you will need to heat the juice in a pan and bring it to a very light simmer. Any type of juice can be used, but if you are looking to avoid added sugar make sure your juice is 100% fruit juice like pineapple or pomegranate juice.
Next to give the gummies their texture you will need to use gelatin. In your simmering fruit juice whisk in both the honey and gelatin. You will need to stir for about a minute until everything is combined.
Once everything is mixed together you can add about two milliliters of CBD oil and mix the whole thing one more time.
To make your gummies into cute shapes, find a mold you can use and divide the mixture evenly. Put the molds on a baking sheet for stability and put them in the refrigerator to set. To speed up the process you can put them in the freezer. The gummies need at least 30 minutes to set and can be kept in the fridge for up to 10 days.
These CBD gummies taste delicious, are made with simple clean ingredients, and can be easily customized in terms of flavor or CBD dose depending on what you are looking for.
