How to Make Cannabis Gummies in Mississauga?
There are several ways to consume cannabis, but gummy bears and worms are one of the most enjoyable and popular. There’s a good reason for that. It is very easy to make weed gummies, and they are a delicious and compact way to consume cannabis. A tin of your very own cannabis gummies is also fun and a little hilarious to open. As a kid, you loved gummy bears and gummy worms, and now you can rekindle that love by consuming a little THC.
Why Consume THC Gummies?
To consume cannabis, many people choose to smoke – and there’s a good thing. It’s really easy, fun, and works almost 100% of the time. But when it comes to consuming weed gummies, most people make the mistake of comparing it with smoking joints. They are a world apart. Agreed, they are both ways of consuming cannabis, but that’s where the similarities stop.
You may experience a different high when you eat edibles than when you smoke. An immersive experience such as this can make you laugh out loud, feel tingly in your whole body, and leave you glued to your couch or gawking at the television screensaver. They may not be the most convenient everyday high due to the time it takes to kick in and the long-lasting high they produce, but make no mistake – edibles are very worthwhile.
You can also use edibles if you want to avoid smoking while still getting high or if you want something you can eat without stinking up the house.
Are Cannabis Gummies Safe?
The typical edibles consumer’s story probably goes like this: I ate the gummy, and nothing happened, so about an hour later, I took another one, and then uh…I need you to pick me up.
Patience is key when it comes to edibles, as they can take up to an hour and a half to kick in. If you haven’t felt anything after an hour, wait a little longer. If you ate the edible with a full stomach, your metabolism might be slower. It’s always best to start with a small dose or the usual amount you take when eating edibles and just be patient and wait.
When making cannabis gummies, safety should also be considered. Unsuspecting children may think they’re just regular gummy bears. Keep your weed gummies safely sealed and stashed away from any little ones in your house to prevent a trip to the ER.
CBD and THC are fat-soluble, which means the body can only metabolize them when consumed in fat.
Cannabis oil contains THC, CBD, terpenes, and flavonoids that the body can metabolize. Having your own cannabis infusion is the easiest way to make edibles, and most THC gummies recipes call for cannabis oil – specifically coconut oil infused with cannabis – as their key ingredient.
Making cannabis edibles is as simple as mixing up your own batch of cannabis coconut oil. It’s probably easier than you think to infuse coconut oil with cannabis.
We suggest using less cannabis than most cannabis oil recipes to keep the gummies from being too strong. However, feel free to adjust the amount depending on your tolerance and the THC content of your cannabis.
1. Decarboxylate Your Cannabis Strain
Now that you’ve got your favourite cannabis strain from an online weed dispensary in Mississauga, decarboxylation is the first and most important step. By decarboxylating cannabis, THCA is converted into THC, making you high. You can decarboxylate your weed by grinding it up and putting it on foil or a baking sheet and baking it for about 30-45 minutes at around 220-245°F (105-120°C). It should not get too hot so just keep an eye on it.
2. Mix It On The Stove
Using a saucepan, warm a cup of coconut oil until it reaches a temperature of about 130-150°F (55-65°C) after you’ve decarboxylated about 3.5 grams of cannabis. Occasionally stir the mixture while it simmers for about three hours with the marijuana added.
Double boilers are also an option. The bottom pan should only have water, and the top section should have coconut oil. Stir in the cannabis and heat at 130-150°F (55-65°C) for about three hours. Cook on low for about three hours, with oil and weed in a slow cooker.
The oil must be strained to remove the plant matter once it is simmered. Once you have strained the oil, you are ready to bottle it. Good job! Now you have a batch of cannabis-infused coconut oil that you can use whenever you like.
Next Step: Making Weed Gummies
If this is your first time making weed gummies, the one thing that you must know about is “emulsification.” Cannabis oil is fat-soluble, and it won’t bond with water. It won’t bond with other ingredients either. Without emulsification, you’ll just have gummies that have separate layers of weed oil in them. You could also end up with gummies that don’t have the same consistency. The solution to this problem is to add an emulsifier such as soy or sunflower lecithin, which will allow the whole mix to come together uniformly in that wonderful gummy consistency.
- ½ cup of the recently made cannabis oil
- ½ cup cold water
- A small box of Jell-O
- Two tablespoons of unflavoured gelatine
- ½ teaspoon sunflower or soy lecithin
- Place the pot on the stove with the water, cannabis-infused coconut oil, and sunflower/soy lecithin inside.
- Stir the oil until it is completely melted and the consistency is uniform. Stir constantly while adding the flavoured and unflavored gelatine.
- Stir constantly and keep at a low temperature for 10-15 minutes until the gelatine has dissolved, making sure not to let it boil.
- Do not wait for the liquid to cool and separate before filling each gummy mould. Use a dropper to fill them quickly. To prevent the mixture from hardening, stir the remaining mixture frequently.
- The gummies should be frozen for 20-25 minutes after filling with the mould.
- Voila! Your very own weed gummies are now ready. Store them in the refrigerator.
How Many Gummies Can You Eat?
You should consider some factors when determining how many edibles to eat, including your experience with edibles, your tolerance, and the strength of the cannabis you used. It is best to start with a low dose, especially homemade edibles that may not be as precise as store-bought ones. You can always contact us for high-quality edibles and other cannabis products for the best results.
If you are making your first batch of gummies, it’s a good idea to try a half – or even a quarter – of one first.
Consider the strength of the weed oil you used for the gummies to understand how strong they will be. A teaspoon of cannabis oil containing 20% THC would have approximately 14 mg of THC per 3.5 grams.
Whatever shapes and colours you choose, it’s easy to keep a jar of your favourite weed gummies around the house for a quick snack or just to relax with a gummy embrace while watching the apocalypse roll by. Always keep sweet edibles out of children’s reach.
