Plus, making your own CBD gummies will save you a lot of money in the long run.

Enjoy your own personalised CBD gummies, free from fillers and artificial ingredients, such as preservatives, sugars, and colours by following our simple recipe below.

Making Your Own CBD Gummies at Home

One of the best things about making your own CBD gummies at home is that you can choose the quality and strength of the CBD you use.

But before you make your gummies, you need to work out how much CBD oil to use to achieve the right strength.

CBD Gummies Dosing

The first thing you’ll need to do is work out how many gummies you can make with our recipe. For us, the recipe below makes 30 gummies, but of course, your molds may be a different size than ours.

For that reason, we recommend that you do a test run with no CBD first, count how many gummies one batch will make for you, and then work out the dosage from there.

If you usually take a 20mg dose of CBD in your edibles and you can make 30 gummies, then you’ll need to add 600mg of CBD to the mixture (20x30). How many drops or ml of CBD oil you will need will depend on the potency of the oil you have.

For example, we measure out 15mls from a 30ml bottle of 1200mg CBD oil. Or we double the batch!

CBD Gummies Recipe

You can make your own CBD gummies at home with just three simple ingredients, juice, gelatin, and honey. We have also listed the ingredients to make vegan CBD gummies below (the method stays the same).

As mentioned previously, this recipe yields 30 gummies when we make them and we add 15ml of 1200mg CBD oil (from a 30ml bottle) to make 30 x 20mg CBD gummies.

CBD Gummies - Ingredients

240ml // 1 cup of 100% fruit juice

2 tbsp of gelatin

2 tbsp honey

Your desired amount of CBD oil

Vegan CBD Gummies - Ingredients

240ml // 1 cup of 100% fruit juice

2 tbsp agar powder or 3 tbsp of vegan gel

2tbsp of maple syrup or any other natural sweetener

Your desired amount of CBD oil

CBD Gummies - Method

  1. In a saucepan, bring the fruit juice to a gentle simmer over a medium-low heat
  2. Add the gelatin (or agar/vegan gel) and honey (or maple syrup) and whisk until dissolved
  3. Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes before stirring in your CBD oil
  4. Transfer the mixture to a small jug and pour into your gummy molds
  5. Leave to set it the fridge or freezer
  6. Once firm, remove from molds and store for up to 10 days in an airtight container

TOP TIPS:

  • Make your molds easier to transfer to the fridge/freezer by slipping a baking tray underneath first
  • Add one or two teaspoons of lemon juice if you want your CBD gummies to last longer than 10 days (lemon is a natural preservative and will prevent mold)
  • If your gummies aren’t firm enough for your liking, then try air drying them for 24 hrs
  • If you’re struggling to work out your dosing, add your CBD directly to each mold before pouring in the mixture
  • If the amount of CBD oil you need to add looks like it’s too much to blend into the recipe unnoticed, then you might have to invest in a more potent oil
  • You can also add a drop or two of extra flavouring and/or colour if you prefer and mix it in when you’re adding your CBD oil
