CBD edible gummies

With the holidays around the corner, this is the perfect time to make some edible gummies and have them as a snack or a gift for friends and family who use cannabis. Ensure that you have consulted with your doctor before you take any cannabis.

Consult with your doctor before taking edibles


  • 1/4 cup preferred dose of Cannabutter 
  • 40g Flavoured gelatin or jello
  • 2 tablespoons unflavoured gelatin
  • 1/4 cup purified water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lecithin to prevent separation of ingredients


  • Saucepan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Molds
  • Droppers


Make sure you have all the equipment, and ingredients ready before you start. You can use gloves, but they’re optional.

  • Set the stove to low-medium heat.
  • Melt your cannabutter (if it isn’t melted) in the saucepan.
  • Pour the water, the flavored, and unflavoured gelatine while whisking.
  • Turn the stove to low heat and keep mixing until everything is dissolved.
  • Use the dropper to fill the gummy molds.

Use molds when making gummies

TIP: You should work quickly to prevent the ingredients from separating.

  • Once the mold is filled, lightly tap it on the counter to get rid of excess air bubbles that may be trapped inside. Do this to all the molds until the gummy mixture is all used up.
  • Let the gummies rest for 2 hours or until the jelly is set.
  • Once ready, remove the gummies from the molds and enjoy!

Shelf life?

The gummies can last up to six months in the freezer. Keep them in an airtight container to preserve the flavor. The best option, of course, would be eating them whilst they’re fresh.

The number of gummies in this recipe

The number of gummies made will depend on the size of your mold. Purchase the mold size of your choice or two different sizes to experiment. Why not?

When using cannabutter, ensure you have the correct dosage to make the gummies. This is very important to remember.


As we have said earlier, it is crucial to talk to your doctor about taking CBD for medical reasons. To be on the safe side, it would be best to just take 5-15 mg at a time. Don't overdo it.


We understand that you may be excited to eat the gummies, but don't take more than what’s recommended by your doctor, as they can have dangerous consequences. Remember to have fun (while being careful) when making these.
