The proper way of making Cannabis Gummy Bears

by Cannadish

We came across a lot of gummy recipes on the net, some making it more complicated than it really is. Or using Cannabis coconut oil. While coconut oil is an option to use as an extract. It’s harder to dose every gummy afterwards, and the fat often floats on top of the gummy bear. Therefore, we use Tincture for candy recipes.


Cannabis infused gummies are a convenient and popular product found at nearly every dispensary these days. They are a discreet and potent way to take your medicine or just an easy dose for recreational use. But you can recreate the experience at home, and tailor the strain, the potency, and the flavors to your liking.

Strawberry isn’t the only flavor option. Why not try working with cherries or blueberries? Almost any fruit will do, and it’s exciting to experiment. If you can’t find a gummy bear shaped silicone mat, any small shape will work so long as the material is silicone. The silicone is important for ease of removal. Store in the refrigerator for a week or more, but be warned if the munchies hit – the little gummies are hard to resist.

Do the gummy bears need to remain frozen for serving?
Do you have a recipe for more realistic type (not frozen)?

Of course it does not have to stay frozen for serving. Lol.
The freezing is just so your gelatin sets faster. After its deftosts again. They good to go. If you dont wanna freeze it at all. Just put it in the refrigerator. Its just takes a little longer for the gelatin to set.

Uh…it doesn’t say how long to heat it, or how hot. Do I boil it? Simmer it? 5 minutes? Just to the point of boiling then turn off? What?

Michael December 2, 2018 - 3:06 pm

Just heat it on medium heat. Like in the video you see It can come to a simmer but its not for to long. The point is that it gets heated so everything will mix in evenly.

It should be mentioned that cooking off Sullivant/isopropyl alcohol like that creates the potential for explosions in your house and that they should take place outside if you’re doing it this way and you should completely pulverize the weed into powder and let it sit in the alcohol for at least 24 hours in the freezer for maximum extraction

Do you think this recipe would work with RSO? And should I dissolve it into the honey first?

How many gummies does this make??

Judy August 2, 2019 - 3:15 pm

Can you use MCT Oil Cannabis Tincture to make these? If so what is the trick bc I made them and bc the Tincture is oily, most of the oil floated to the top so I’m sure I lost some mg there…any tips for making them with the oil based Tinctures? Or any other edible ideas that might work for the oil based ones? Thanks! I’m using Curaleaf Tincture which is made with MCT and Cannabis oil if that helps.

can you just use jello?

Anne September 2, 2019 - 8:25 pm

There are a couple recipe details that differ from your video.
Tincture Volume:
Primarily, written recipe = 1 Tbsp Tincture
Video = 2 Tbsp Tincture

Water Volume:
1/2 C vs 1/3 C
when using strawberries

If there is a final volume of juice?

Thank you for your fun video 🙂

Sandra October 28, 2019 - 11:51 pm

Agree with Anne about the discrepancies. Also the video adds a cup of juice to the recipe, which would result in a significant different in the end.
Thanks, would like to try this but don’t want to waste products if one or the other version is wrong.

Debra October 9, 2019 - 3:18 pm

If using fresh fruit, don’t you risk the possibility of the fruit spoiling? Wouldn’t jello be better?
