Take control over the dosage of your own medicine, flavour of choiceand your finances, by making your own cannabis gummies at home. Another good reason to make your edibles is so you know the exactingredients that went into them.A benefit of making your own edibles is controlling your desired dosage and using your favourite ingredients. The flavour options for these homemade cannabis gummies are truly endless. I personally like using sparkling rose, they’re a nice treat during the summer! If you are using a juice such as cranberry, grapefruit or sour cherry, that needs to be sweetened a bit more, add in some regular honey unless you want your dosage to be higher then use some more medicated honey. However, you can literally use any flavour of liquid your heart desires, such as:
●champagne, sparkling wine
●fruit & vegetable juice combo
●cold tea, green, black, red rooibos
●fruit juice, store-bought or freshly squeezed
**All of these liquids will form into a gummy except unpasteurized, fresh juices from fruits that contain the enzymeprotease, which will disrupt the gelling process. These fruits include pineapple, papaya, kiwi, mango, guava, fig, andpawpaw. The way around this is to kill off the enzyme bypasteurizing the juice first, using heat. Using a double boiler,heat the juice to 70°C/160°F for 1 minute. Chill the juice beforeusing it in the recipe. **
The third ingredient, gelatin, is really the star of this recipe. Gelatin hasamazing gelling properties. 1 tablespoon of gelatin will set 2 cups of liquid,so you may be thinking “why is there 3 ½ tablespoons in this recipe?” Thedesired characteristic of a gummy is to be a bit more firm than jello so it willrelease from the silicone mold nicely and hold it’s shape once removedfrom the mold. Gelatin, also known as collagen, has been said to havemany health benefits for the human body. Some examples are:
●strong, healthy bones
