How to make your CBD oil gummies


CBD edible products are becoming popular, with gummies being among the most common. CBD gummies are a great way to enjoy CBD benefits, especially if you hate the bitter taste of CBD oil tinctures or the earthy aftertaste of CBD oils. Most CBD novices start with CBD gummies to establish a CBD lifestyle. However, CBD gummies are relatively expensive. Learning how to make homemade CBD gummies comes in handy. Learn the easiest way to prepare your CBD oil gummies below.

Why CBD Oil Gummies Have Become More Popular

CBD gummies are an easy way to consume CBD oil products. Unlike CBD oil and tinctures, CBD gummies often come in sweet fruity flavors, making it easy to incorporate them into your CBD lifestyle. Because of the sweeteners and flavorings featured in making the gummies, they are not bitter like tinctures, nor will your feel the dominant earthy taste of CBD oil. What’s more, CBD gummies are cheaper than CBD oils. They are mostly offered in packs of at least 4 gummies, providing a convenient way to establish a CBD routine. Also, you can have flavored CBD gummies that are sugar-free. In this blog, we share a recipe for making CBD gummies at home and offer tips on how to go around the process for sugar-free CBD items.

How to Make CBD Oil Gummies

The Tools

Silicone Molds

These molds are most preferred since they make it easy to squeeze out the gummies once you prepare them. You can have semi-round, heart- or star-shaped molds.

CBD Oil Tincture

Tinctures are ideal because they are easily absorbed, but you can also use CBD oil with MCT coconut or hemp oils as the base carrier.


These will help you measure out the CBD oil or tincture. If your molds come with droppers, you don’t need to have an extra dropper.

Homemade CBD Gummies: The Recipe

The recipe shared in this blog is extracted from the Essential Guide to CBD, and it gives you step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions for making CBD oil. Our recipe results in 48 moderate-sized or 24 large CBD gummies. However, you can adjust it accordingly, depending on the intended final product. For instance, if you need 24 10 mg gummies, you will measure 240 ml of the CBD oil tinctures if the tinctures you use have a 1 mg/ml potency. Below is the recipe for 24 large or 48 average-sized gummies;


  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of dried hibiscus flowers or 6 hibiscus tea bags
  • 3 tablespoons of dried fruit powder, such as strawberry or raspberry
  • One-and-a-half tablespoons of refined white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lime or fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin
  • 24 dose servings of CBD oil or CBD oil tincture for the 24 or 48 gummies

Directions for preparing the gummies

Once you have measured the ingredients as detailed above, follow this procedure;

  1. Prepare hibiscus tea by boiling water and adding it to hibiscus tea bags or flours on a heat-proof boil. Let the mixture rest for at least 5 minutes, steep it out, measure ¾ of the tea in a cup and discard the rest.
  2. Prepare the gummy base by pouring the hibiscus tea into a saucepan, adding lemon juice, dried fruit powder, and sugar. Whisk the mixture, and warm it on low-medium heat until it’s hot but not boiling. Sprinkle gelatin powder on the mixture, subject it to low-medium heat, and mix until the gelatin completely dissolves.

  3. NB; you can switch the sugar with honey or agave. Alternatively, you can use monk extract or stevia for sugar-free gummies.

  4. Remove the mixture from heat and use a dropper to add CBD oil tinctures or oils, depending on your preferences. If you stir the mixture vigorously, it will form foams that do not affect the final products’ quality but prevent them from being clear. If you notice the foams, remove the mixture from heat, allow it to cool without mixing before placing it back to heat, and remove the foams that will pop to the top.
  5. Put the gummy mixture on the mold using a spoon or a pipette. You can use a baking sheet to place the mixture and scoop it into the mold from there.

  6. NB; the mixture solidifies once it's out of the heat, so you need to work fast.

  7. Chill the gummies on the mold for 2 hours in a refrigerator.
  8. Once the gummies are firm, invert the mold and gently remove the gummies.
  9. Let the gummies rest on a wire rack for 24 hours to make them chewier.
  10. Give the gummies a sugar coating by tossing them in a bowl of little sugar, one at a time, and allow them to dry on the wire rack for about 60 minutes. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from heat.

NB; Homemade gummies should be consumed within 2 weeks. However, you can have them fresh for one year if you put them in a freezer bag and freeze them.
