Many people appreciate CBD gummies because they taste great and can be taken without washing them down with a beverage. In addition to the taste, since CBD gummies involve keeping CBD in the mouth for an extended period, the gummies slowly release the CBD for better absorption compared to other delivery methods. This is especially true if the CBD is infused within the CBD gummies rather than applied to the surface.

If you’d like to try CBD gummies but have dietary restrictions, or just don’t like some of the commonly added ingredients, it’s easy to make your own at home. This way you can have complete control over the amount of CBD and all the added ingredients. Depending on your preference, you can make your gummies with either CBD isolate or CBD oil.

If you make CBD part of your daily regimen, a gummy is an easy way to incorporate it into your routine. It’s an easy way to do something good for yourself, so their appeal is clear. A CBD gummy is a very convenient way to get your daily regimen of CBD. They’re easily portable, come in individual servings, and are available in a variety of flavors.

How to Make CBD Gummies at Home

It’s simple to make your own CBD gummies, and when you do, you have complete control over their potency. Also, everyone can name some flavors in a mixed bag of candy they’d rather not eat. When you make your own, you can just include your favorites.

You’ll find other recipes that use Jello mix to make gummies, and while this works just fine, our recipe uses fruit juice and gelatin or agar-agar for a vegan version. If you’re making something yourself, you might as well use good ingredients!

The easiest way to add CBD to gummies is with CBD isolate, a powder that contains 99% pure CBD in a crystalline form. It’s flavorless and odorless, which makes it a great option for gummies. With an accurate scale, you can adjust the CBD potency in your gummies very easily. Each milligram of CBD isolate powder contains about a milligram of CBD, so it’s easy to measure the total amount. The recipe here makes about 50 gummy bears sized pieces, so if you want a standard 5mg serving, use 250mg of CBD isolate. Adjust from there to get the specific amount that works for you.

Many people prefer broad-spectrum oil, which contains all the nutrients, cannabinoids, and terpenes of the hemp plant. These additional compounds create the entourage effect, which may improve their effectiveness. If you’re using hemp oil, check the amount of CBD to determine the appropriate amount to use. Make sure that it’s mixed well with the water and gelatin or agar-agar in your mixture so that it’s evenly distributed in all of your gummies.

You can make gummies with coconut oil-based CBD oils or MCT-based oils, but they often result in an oily taste and feel, so it’s not ideal for this use.

The CBD gummy recipe here is for orange-flavored chews. To make other flavors, substitute the orange juice with 1/2 or 2/3 cup of fruit puree and 1/2 cup of water. Most fruit flavors will benefit from the acidity provided by the lemon juice, but you can leave it out if desired.

Step by Step Instructions

Ingredients for CBD Gummies:
  • CBD Isolate or CBD hemp oil, measured for 50 doses
  • 1 cup orange juice, or 1/2 cup fruit puree and 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey, agave, brown rice syrup, or another liquid sweetener
  • 3 tablespoons powdered gelatin, unflavored, or an equal amount of powdered agar-agar
  • Silicone molds for 50 gummies and a cookie sheet to hold the molds


If you don’t have silicone molds, you can pour the mixture onto a lightly greased rimmed baking sheet. When you remove it from the freezer, you can cut it into pieces with a knife or use cookie cutters. Keep the dosage that you used in mind and make sure that you keep the size appropriate.
