CBD gummies are some of the most popular cannabis edibles. Why wouldn’t they be? They’re easy to dose, convenient, and – most importantly – delicious. That’s why Tessera Naturals is proud to offer them.
But for some of us, our love for CBD gummies might inspire something homemade. While these products are popular on store shelves, many feel gummies are challenging to make.
However, nothing can be further from the truth. With a few clever shortcuts, it’s ridiculously easy to make CBD gummies at home. Besides, Tessera Naturals has what you need for the highest-quality homemade CBD edibles.
A Word About CBD Gummies
CBD gummies are amazing, but there’s one problem. Conventional CBD extract is mostly metabolized by the liver, leaving behind – at best – about 20% for your body to use.
Liver metabolism also adds extra time. Consequently, you have to take a higher dose and wait between 30 and 60 minutes to feel anything.
If you don’t solve this problem, 80% of the CBD you ingest goes to waste. Fortunately, we offered the solution from the moment we opened our doors.
Tessera Naturals: The Nano CBD Difference
Using such a small fraction of the CBD you pay for doesn’t seem like a sound investment. Yet for some reason, most vendors are fine with that. After all, they get paid either way.
Tessera Naturals doesn’t feel these practices are fair, especially when we have the technology to make edibles more potent.
Why Nano CBD?
“Nano CBD” is something that’s caused quite a buzz in the CBD industry. While it’s not predominant, customers are increasingly aware of nano CBD’s superior quality and potency.
Nano CBD uses a process called “nanoemulsion” to change the way cannabidiol mixes with water. Cannabinoids are hydrophobic, meaning they don’t mix with water.
Without getting too detailed, nanoemulsion allows CBD to become hydrophilic – meaning it’s attracted to water. Because our bodies contain 70% water, nano CBD absorbs more quickly and through different pathways compared to digestion alone.
With that out of the way, we hope you have your favorite nano CBD oil handy. Let’s take a look at how to easily make CBD gummies at home.
How to Make CBD Gummies in Your Microwave
Yes, you read that correctly. If you have the culinary skills to cook a TV dinner, you have what it takes to be the next great CBD chef!
This recipe is so easy, it’s likely you’ll have most of these ingredients lying around. If not, getting what you need will barely dent your wallet.
You control the potency, so we can’t specify how much to expect. The strength depends on your CBD oil concentration. Make sure you consider cannabinoid content before you choose an oil.
The following recipe is enough for 15 gummies – a practice amount. However, don’t let us stop you from cutting down or increasing the measurements as you see fit.
Things You’ll Need
- Silicone gummy mold
- Cooking spray
- Baking sheet
- Measuring cup
- ½ cup (125 ml) of juice, lemonade, or sports drink
- 2 packets (1 oz each) of gelatin (unflavored)
- 1 tablespoon of corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of Tessera Naturals broad-spectrum CBD tincture
Step 1: Prepare the Mold
Lightly apply some cooking spray to the gummy mold. This prevents sticking. If you don’t have cooking spray, coconut oil will also do.
For now, leave the greased mold on your baking sheet.
Step 2: Mix
Combine the juice, gelatin, and corn syrup inside your measuring cup, and stir until well-mixed.
There will be bits of undissolved gelatin floating in the mixture. These will disappear during heating, so don’t worry.
Once everything is well-mixed, let the liquid sit for about 60 seconds.
Step 3: Cook
Place the measuring cup inside the microwave and heat on high for 30 seconds, then stir. Cook for another 30 seconds and mix again.
If all the gelatin is gone, you’re good to go. If not, just place the cup in for another 30 seconds and keep repeating until everything combines smoothly.
Set the cup aside for at least 15 minutes and don’t stir.
Step 4: Add the CBD Oil
After 15 minutes or so, the mixture should thicken and have a more jelly-like consistency. If it’s still watery, give it more time.
Once you reach the desired thickness, add 5 ml of Tessera Naturals broad-spectrum CBD tincture and stir thoroughly.
Step 5: Pour
Pour the mixture straight from the measuring cup into your silicone gummy mold until all the sections fill to the top.
Step 6: Refrigerate
Place the mold back onto your baking sheet and leave it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
You’ll know the gummies are ready once they feel cool and firm.
Step 7: Gather the Gummies
Now that the CBD gummies are set, it’s time to see what you accomplished. Gently twist and push the mold and the edibles should fall out fairly easily.
And that’s it! Now you can make CBD gummies at home without using a stove. Feel free to experiment with different drink flavors and potencies.
