How to Make CBD Gummies With Oil
Ever since CBD exploded onto the scene, CBD-infused gummies have been one of the most popular methods of consumption. Not only do they offer a discreet and convenient way of dosing, but the effects are also longer-lasting and they’re delicious!
However, taking your daily dose of CBD in gummy form can work out to be a little more expensive than using CBD oil or flower, so today we’re going to teach you how to make CBD gummies at home, as well as give you some tips on dosing.

How to make CBD gummies
Although you can make CBD edibles with flower, it’s much easier and quicker to make CBD gummies using full-spectrum CBD oil.
It’s easier to get consistent dosing when you’re using oil as it mixes through your recipe more evenly and it’s quicker because there’s no decarboxylation needed.
When you know how to make CBD oil gummies for yourself, you’ll be able to save yourself a lot of money. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to control the type and quality of ingredients used, choose your favorite flavors, and make them according to your own personalized dose.
Before we get started, we have some advice on how to work out your dosing, or feel free to scroll straight down to the recipe.
CBD gummies dosing
The first thing you need to do is decide how strong you want your gummies to be. If you know that you usually like to take 25mg of CBD, do you want to take that whole dose in one gummy, or would you prefer a bit more flexibility?
Making 10mg gummies may be most convenient so that you can choose whether to take one, two, or three, depending on how you feel.
Once you’ve decided on how strong you want them to be, you need to work out how many gummies you can make in each batch.
The recipe we’ve shared below makes us 30 gummy bears per batch (two trays of 15), but you will probably end up with a different number depending on the size of your gummy molds.
We highly recommend that you make this recipe without CBD first. That way you can see how many gummies you’re going to end up with and work out the dosage from there.
You should also make sure that you’re using a silicone mold that will produce uniformly sized gummies, otherwise, you’ll need to add your CBD oil to each gummy individually to ensure consistent dosing.
Pro tip: Stronger gummies (25-50mg CBD) tend to make you feel sleepy while less potent gummies (10-15mg CBD) give you a nice sense of calm and relaxation without making you sleepy. So plan your recipe based on when you plan to eat the CBD gummies and what effect you want.
How long does it take for CBD gummies to hit you?
You’ll find that most gummies hit in 20-45 minutes. Don’t chew and swallow the CBD gummies too quickly. The CBD enters your blood stream much quicker through the blood vessels under your tongue than through your digestive system so let the gummy work its magic before you swallow it.
How long do CBD gummies last?
Using our method the homemade gummies last for 10 days to a week (likely a bit longer to be honest). When you purchase CBD gummies or Sleep gummies from a manufacturer they last significantly longer.
