Keep reading if you're curious about THC gummy worms, how to make weed gummies, how to make gummy bears with distillate, or how to make edible gummies with cannabutter. Let's get started.

THC gummy worms

THC gummy worms are chewy, sweet cannabis-infused edibles. THC gummy worms are made with a gummy-like substance, usually gelatin, corn syrup, fructose, or sugar, and contain a THC concentrate like a distillate or cannabutter.

Edible gummies come in all sorts of different shapes, from weed gummy bears to THC gummy worms.

Weed gummy worms mostly taste like regular gummy candy but include a bit of an earthy taste that comes from the cannabis.

Cannabis-infused gummy worms are popular amongst cannabis consumers because they offer longer lasting, and often stronger, effects than smoking or vaping cannabis.

THC gummies are also popular because they are a great way for people to consume cannabis discreetly while on-the-go. Like all cannabis edibles, THC gummy worms can be potent, so start with a low dose and wait at least two hours before ingesting more if you aren't familiar with the potency.

THC gummy worms are like other cannabis infused edibles and have a longer onset time than smoking or vaping. If you aren’t familiar with the difference between eating cannabis and inhaling it, check out our article How Different Cannabis Ingestion Methods Affect You.

The effects of cannabis gummies can take up to an hour and a half before they are felt, but when you do feel them, the effects last much longer and can be much stronger than the effects of smoking cannabis. To have an enjoyable experience with THC gummy worms and other cannabis gummies it’s best to start with a low dose, track your experience on the Jointly app, and consume more as needed.

THC gummy worms are available in most states where cannabis consumption is legal. You can also make your own weed gummies. Below are two different recipes to make weed gummies.

How to make gummy bears with distillate

Cannabis distillate is a cannabis concentrate that has gone through a process to separate and isolate cannabinoids like THC or CBD from unwanted materials like pesticides and heavy metals.

This makes distillate a great choice to make THC-infused gummies. If you are looking to make medicated weed gummies that include terpenes and flavonoids, swap your THC distillate for Rick Simpson Oil to make RSO gummies. RSO gummies include a larger spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

Whatever type of concentrate you use, it’s best to use a lab-tested product so that you can measure the potency of your ganja gummies. This will help you avoid ingesting too much THC from your THC gummies.

There are hundreds of ways to make edible gummies. Our tried-and-true process shows you how to make health-conscious, vegan THC gummies from scratch.

How to make THC gummy bears with distillate (preparation steps)

Step 1: Clean the area where you will make your THC gummies

How to make THC gummy bears with distillate (recipe)

Step 1: Place the sealed 1-gram syringe into the cup of lukewarm water (this will help it dissolve into your mixture later).

Step 3: Add 3 ounces of flavored Jello and .5 ounces of preferred gelatin. Mix until smooth without any lumps.

Step 4: Place your ganja gummies mold in a location where you can easily fill it (later).

Step 5: Transfer the contents of your mixing bowl into a saucepan, turn on the stove to low heat, heat, and stir the mixture continuously for 10 minutes. Be careful to not boil the liquid.

Step 6: Turn off heat, remove your 1-gram syringe from the cup of lukewarm water and quickly add the contents of the syringe into your saucepan while consistently stirring, stir until thoroughly mixed.

Step 7: Carefully transfer the liquid from your saucepan to your glass measuring cup.

Step 8: Lineup the spout of your glass measuring cup with an empty bear mold, fill the mold, repeat until you are out of liquid.

Step 9: Carefully place your molds in the refrigerator and leave overnight so the weed gummies firm up.
