Are you a fan of chewy candy? Do you love to get high? Well, why not combine the two? THC gummies are a tasty and convenient way to experience the effects of cannabis. They are discreet, portable, and pack a punch. Discover their benefits, and a couple of easy recipes, below.

The Benefits of Cannabis Gummies

Cannabis gummies have become extremely popular in recent years. They’re convenient, easy to make, discreet, and have the potential to serve up a super potent high. These small, chewy bites offer something different to more traditional cannabis edibles such as cakes and brownies.

As an edible product, cannabis gummies deliver a unique high to smoking or vaping. Every time you inhale weed through a joint or vape, you're primarily experiencing the effects of THC. However, after eating cannabis, the liver converts most of the THC into a more potent metabolite known as 11-hydroxy-THC. With this in mind, cannabis gummies take longer to kick in, but their effects last much longer and hit much harder.

If you’re looking for a new way to gobble down some THC and tasty terpenes, then familiarise yourself with the benefits of weed gummies below. You never know, they could quickly become your new go-to!


Easy Storage

Owing to their small size and lengthy shelf-life, cannabis gummies are easy to stash away. Most forms of weed edibles are filled with perishable ingredients, meaning you need to eat them sooner rather than later—you’ll get away with storing them in the fridge for a couple of days at most. But you don’t need to worry about that lingering sense of urgency with cannabis gummies. Store them in an airtight container and in a cool and dark place, and they’ll keep for several months without losing any of their potency or flavor.

What’s more, cookies, cakes, and brownies are fairly bulky food items. On the flip side, gummies are tiny. This makes finding space to store bulk quantities in your home an easy task. Not only that, but you can easily carry a couple of gummies on you without taking up any room in your bag or worrying about squishing anything.

Manageable Dosing

Weed gummies are a convenient way for any cannabis user to take the exact amount of the active constituents that they desire. Properly made homemade gummies, or those sourced from a reputable supplier, will contain a precise amount of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. As you’re now aware, edibles hit considerably harder than inhaled cannabis. Therefore, it’s of the utmost importance to consume a product with appropriate quantities of THC. Not only will this give you a better idea of what you’re in for, but it will prevent any unwanted experiences and reduce the risk of greening out.

All kinds of cannabis users benefit from the dosing accuracy offered by weed gummies. Recreational users can rest easy knowing they’ll experience a manageable high, and medical users can ingest the right amount of cannabinoids to address certain symptoms without blasting off to the moon.

Discreet Consumption

How many times do you notice people around you eating candy of any kind? It hardly arouses suspicion or intrigue. Because of this, cannabis gummies are ideal when you want to keep your cannabis intake on the down-low.

Whether you’re on a lunch break, waiting for a bus, or lounging on the train, removing a gummy from its storage container and inserting it into your mouth pales in comparison to hitting a joint or blunt as far as stealth is concerned. Not only that, but it’ll save you from stinking out your house. If you live with other people who don’t appreciate smoke or vapor in the air, then gummies are an easy and odour-free option.

How to Make Cannabis Gummy Bears From Scratch

Now that you’re aware of the core benefits of cannabis gummies, we’re going to teach you how to whip up a batch of your own. But we’re not talking any old gummies here—we’re talking gummy bears! Follow the simple steps below to turn a handful of ingredients into a batch of potent sweets.

Note: Before we begin, you need to check two boxes. First of all, use our guide to dosing cannabis edibles to ensure you use the correct amount of weed for the effects you desire. Next, check out our easy cannabis-infused coconut oil recipe to prepare a batch to be used in the following gummy bear recipe!


  • 125ml cannabis-infused coconut oil
  • 125ml cold water
  • 3 oz flavored gelatine
  • 1.1 oz unflavoured gelatine
  • ½ tsp soy lecithin


  • Cooking pot
  • Bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Strainer
  • Small pipette
  • Gummy bear molds
  • Airtight container


You have everything you need, so let’s get down to business! Follow the simple weed gummy recipe below to make your own batch of psychoactive treats.

  1. First things first—place your pot on the stove and pour in the water. Apply low heat and add the cannabis coconut oil and soy lecithin to the pot, stirring as you go.
  2. Keep stirring away at the pot. Add the gelatine and continue stirring until all of the ingredients melt and dissolve into the mixture. Leave your pot on the heat for a further 15 minutes, but don’t walk away. Continue to agitate and stir, and be careful not to let your precious mixture boil.
  3. Turn off the heat. Next, pour the mixture through your strainer to remove any lumps that failed to dissolve at all.
  4. Grab your pipette and gummy mold and get to work quickly. You need to carry out this step before the mixture starts to separate and solidify. Withdraw the mixture up into the pipette, then deposit it into the gummy molds until the bowl is empty.
  5. Once loaded, immediately place your mold into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove your mold from the ice-cold domain of the freezer and let it settle at room temperature. Then, pop them out of their molds and store them away in a container until you want to use them.


How to Make Cannabis Gummy Bears With Regular Gummies

Congratulations, you’re now equipped with the knowledge to make your own gummies from scratch. But did you know you can also use non-infused gummy bears as a bit of a shortcut? It still requires a little bit of work, but it does streamline the process somewhat. Check out how it’s done below!


  • 2 tbsp warm water
  • ½ tsp gelatine
  • 2 tsp cannabis-infused coconut oil
  • 3.9 oz gummies of your choice


  • Gummy mold
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Pipette
  • Tablespoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Whisk


  1. Grab a mixing bowl and toss in your gelatine and warm water. Stir the two together and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Now, add the gummies of your choice to the bowl with the gelatine and water. Place the bowl in the microwave and heat until it melts completely (you’ll need to keep a constant eye on it).
  3. Next, add your cannabis-infused coconut oil to the bowl, and whisk the mixture thoroughly until completely combined.
  4. While still warm, pour the mixture into the gummy mold. Place the mold into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the gummy mold and let it sit at room temperature until defrosted.


Cannabis Gummies: FAQ

How long do homemade cannabis gummies last?
Homemade cannabis gummies have a reasonably long shelf-life, which makes them more attractive than more perishable edible options. Store them in an airtight container in a cool and dark place, and they’ll keep for several months without losing flavour or potency.
What is the best oil to infuse for cannabis gummies?
You can infuse cannabis gummies with a range of different concentrates, from FECO and tinctures to infused coconut oil and olive oil. Because it’s so easy to make and quite versatile, we recommend using the cannabis-infused coconut oil recipe mentioned above.
Which is better, weed gummies or cannabis brownies?
That completely depends on personal preference. Gummies are smaller and keep for longer. Their portability also makes them a great choice when travelling. Brownies, however, provide a more substantial mouthful and are better suited for social occasions. You’ll probably find yourself preferring one over the other depending on the situation at hand.
How many cannabis gummies should you eat?
Regardless of their potency, we always suggest, as a general rule, to take things low and slow. Edibles affect people in different ways, according to variables such as body weight and tolerance. Always wait at least one hour before throwing another gummy down the hatch to make sure you don’t experience an overwhelming effect.
