Edibles are fun, but nothing is more fun that a gummy bear… or snake… or ring. Anything gummy is cool. So, for this 4/20, rock out, and chill out with this easy edible gummy recipe.

Cherry, Green Tea, and CBD Gummy Bears

Start to finish: 45 minutes (active: 30 minutes)

Yields: 50 gummy bears

Approximate dosage: 5mg CBD and 1mg THC per gummy bear*

*Note: Potency may vary widely depending on your tincture.

Materials

Ingredients

  • 1 oz CBD tincture (I used Ethos 250mg CBD Tincture—if you use a tincture with more or less CBD, divide the total milligrams in your tincture by 50 to calculate the approximate dosage of each bear)
  • 2 green tea bags
  • 3 tablespoons creamed honey
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • ¾ cup tart cherry juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons agar-agar powder or gelatin
  • ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

Directions

  1. Pour coconut water into small saucepan. Bring to boil, then steep green tea bags in coconut water for up to 10 minutes (but no less than 4 minutes). Compost tea bags.
  2. Add cherry juice, salt, and creamed honey to saucepan. Stir gently until mixture is homogenous. Return mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
  3. Add agar-agar powder and whisk constantly for 3–4 minutes. (Note: The texture of agar-agar can be unsatisfying for folks used to the gelatin-based gummy bears. You can replace with gelatin, if you’d like.)
  4. Add your desired dosage of CBD tincture (alcohol, coconut oil, or glycerin tinctures are all fine) and whisk thoroughly until fully incorporated.
  5. Turn off stovetop and place funnel in condiment bottle.
  6. Transfer gummy bear liquid to condiment bottle. Be careful! This liquid is crazy hot and you will need to work quickly.
  7. Using oven mitt or hot pad, hold bottle and squeeze liquid into gummy bear mold.
  8. Transfer mold to refrigerator and let set for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove bears from tray and store in airtight container.

Enjoy!
