Over the past few years, the number of CBD gummies on the market has exploded, offering a natural way for people to get a good night’s sleep. Many people are particular about the ingredients they put into their bodies and if you are one of those people, making your own CBD gummies can offer you more control over what you are consuming. Homemade gummies are also a more affordable option for many individuals. Follow this simple step-by-step guide to enjoy creating and eating your own homemade edibles with four simple ingredients.
What Are CBD Gummies?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the active compounds in the hemp plant. CBD gummies are sweet, chewy treats infused with CBD oil.
CBD offers benefits for many people who struggle with epilepsy, anxiety, and some types of chronic pain. One of CBD’s most life-changing benefits is its ability to relieve insomnia. You can also learn more on our blog, how to use CBD gummies to help with pain.
Before you begin a CBD regimen, it is recommended you speak to your doctor.
Ingredients for Making Homemade CBD Sleep Gummies
This recipe for CBD sleep gummies uses just four ingredients:
- CBD drops – Your favorite brand of oil-based CBD tincture will transform regular gummies into CBD gummies. Better yet, you can make homemade CBD oil using an infusion machine such as LĒVO II, LĒVO C, or LĒVO Lux.
- Gelatin – In order to get the chewy “gummy” texture we all know and love, you need to use gelatin. Note that collagen powder will not work as a substitute in this recipe. Skip all the gelatin guesswork and use one of LĒVO’s delicious flavors of Gummy Mix.
- Sweetener – You can use honey, maple syrup, or agave to make your gummies sweet. If you are using LĒVO Gummy Mix, skip this step as it is already added!
- Fruit juice – To add more body and flavor to your CBD gummies, you’ll want to add a bold-tasting fruit juice such as cherry, pomegranate, or grape juice. Avoid pineapple juice, however, as it will keep your gummies from setting. If you are using LĒVO Gummy Mix, swap water for juice!
Homemade CBD Sleep Gummie
- 1 pack of LĒVO Gummy Mix
- 6 tsp of water
- 4 tsp of CBD Oil infused using your LĒVO Oil Infusion Machine
- After you have chosen your favorite gummy flavor, use the LĒVO Gummy Candy Mixer to create soft, delectable CBD Sleep Gummies. The Gummy Candy Mixer uses precise temperature and time settings, taking the guesswork out of candy making.
- Start by adding your preferred gummy mix and water to the LĒVO Gummy Candy Mixer machine and press the start button. The candy mixer will begin its first heat and whisk cycle and do all the work for you.
- When you hear the machine beep, it signals the first cycle is complete. You can now add your CBD oil infusion into the machine. Put the lid back on and hold the power button for three seconds to start the second cycle.
- When the second cycle is complete and your mix and oil are incorporated, transfer your candy mixture into gummy molds. You can place your gummies in the fridge or freezer to help them set more quickly. If your mixture begins to set prior to adding it to the molds, run it through another heat and whisk (second) cycle to soften the candy. LĒVO Gummy Candy Molds are made of food-safe silicone and include droppers and snap-on lids, making it easy to transfer and store your gummy mixture.
