How to make your own Cannabis Edibles
Cannabis edibles, particularly gummies, have become a popular way to consume cannabis. Not only are they discreet and easy to consume, but they also come in a variety of flavors and potencies. In this blog post, we will explore how cannabis gummies are made and how you can use different cannabis products to make the process faster.
The first step in making cannabis gummies is to decarboxylate the cannabis flower. Decarboxylation is the process of heating the flower to activate the cannabinoids and make them more bioavailable. This step is important because it ensures that the gummies will have the desired potency and effects.
After decarboxylation, the cannabis flower is infused into a carrier oil or tincture. This step involves combining the decarboxylated cannabis with a carrier oil or tincture, such as coconut oil or alcohol. The mixture is heated and stirred to ensure that the cannabinoids are fully infused into the carrier oil or tincture.
Once the cannabis is infused into the carrier oil or tincture, it can be used to make the gummy mixture. The gummy mixture is typically made with gelatin, corn syrup, and flavorings. The infused oil or tincture is added to the mixture, and the mixture is heated and stirred until it is fully combined.
The mixture is then poured into gummy molds and allowed to cool and solidify. The gummies can be stored in an airtight container and kept in a cool, dark place for optimal freshness and potency.
While the process of making cannabis gummies can be time-consuming, there are ways to make it faster using other cannabis products. For example, using cannabis tinctures or oils can eliminate the need for the decarboxylation and infusion steps, as they are already activated and infused. This can significantly reduce the amount of time and effort required to make cannabis gummies.
In conclusion, cannabis gummies are a fun and delicious way to consume cannabis. While the process of making them can be time-consuming, using cannabis tinctures or oils can make the process faster and more convenient. Whether you choose to make your own or purchase them from a dispensary, cannabis gummies are a great way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis in a tasty and discreet way.
