Aside from being cute and convenient, gummies are a flavorful, fun and effective way to medicate.
If possible, make these candies in a silicon mold and they’ll pop right out after being chilled. It’s also helpful to taste the mixture before pouring it into the mold. If the weed taste is too strong, try adding some additional honey.
Makes 24 servings
THC per serving: 5 mg
1 large package orange Jell-O
1-1/2 cups orange juice, divided
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup Cannabis Infused Cooking Oil, preferably coconut
4 packets gelatin
Combine the Jell-O and 1 cup of orange juice in a medium saucepan. Add the honey and canna-oil and heat slowly, stirring frequently.
In a small bowl, mix the gelatin with the remaining orange juice and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Add the gelatin to the Jell-O and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes. Whisk almost constantly and get the sides of the pan.
Pour the ganja gummies mixture into silicon molds or coated mini paper cups. Allow to cool at room temperature and then chill in the fridge.
Remove the ganja gummies from the molds. Toss each candy with a bit of cornstarch to prevent sticking.
Cannabis-Infused Cooking Oil
The steps to infusing oil are the same regardless of the type of oil used. You can even make a blend of oils if you like. My favorite is coconut oil. It infuses beautifully and can even be used as a topical remedy.

Much like Canna-Butter, Cannabis-Infused Cooking Oil is an easy, versatile staple for at-home edibles.
7 grams cannabis, decarbed (see directions below)
1 pint (16 ounces) cooking oil such as coconut, olive, avocado, canola
In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over low heat until thoroughly warmed.
Add the decarbed cannabis to the oil. Stir to mix.
Continue to cook over low heat for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. The oil should not boil or simmer, although it may bubble occasionally.
Line a fine mesh strainer with cheesecloth and place it over a large, heat-safe bowl. Carefully pour the oil through the cheesecloth, allowing any excess oil to strain through.
Remove the cheesecloth from the strainer, using gloves if the oil is still very hot, and squeeze any remaining oil into the bowl.
Allow the oil to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container.
How to decarb cannabis
Preheat your oven to 240 degrees.
Grind up your cannabis. While a blender, food processor or coffee grinder will work best here, you can do this manually with a knife and cutting board.
Distribute your ground marijuana on an parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
If not using immediately, store your cannabis in an air-tight container in a cool, dark place. Do not cover until your marijuana is completely cooled.
