We know that cannabis-infused coconut oil is not a material available for sale in grocery stores yet. Here we also have a fast recipe to prepare cannabis-infused coconut oil.
Step 1 - Decarb your herb
The first thing to do to make your cannabis-coconut oil is to decarboxylate your herb so you activate its cannabinoids. That way, they can exert the beneficial effects that most people look at from weed gummy worms.
Start by preheating your oven at 250° F. Now, break your nugs into pieces small enough to fit in your KLIP’s slicing chamber. Slice all the herb to a fine powder, spread it on a baking sheet, and put it in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Stir the ground herb a few times to make sure it cooks evenly.
Step 2 - Infuse the coconut oil
In the oven-safe container, combine the ground and decarboxylated cannabis with the lecithin, the coconut oil, and mix it using the fork or whisk and cover the mix. Use the cookpot and fill it to make a double boiler, place the oven-safe container into the pot, and put it in the 250° F preheated oven for at least two hours. Stir the mix a time or two while the oil is cooking. Then, remove from the oven and let the oil cool for five minutes.
Use a cheesecloth to strain the oil and remove the plant matter from it. Press the weed inside the cheesecloth to extract the most oil you can. Your cannabis-infused coconut oil is now ready to use.
Step 3 - Prepare gummy worm mix
Mix the cold water or fruit juice with the cannabis-infused coconut oil in a small cookpot and place it on the stove at medium fire. Stir as you bring the mix to an almost-boil point. Pour the unflavored gelatin into the pot as you whisk continually. Then whisk the flavored gelatin and the citric acid and stir extensively for 10 to 15 minutes or until you see all ingredients are combined homogeneously. You will feel the mixture thickens when you finish.
Step 4 - Mold weed gummy worms
Leave the cookpot on the stove a low fire and fill the gummy worms mold using the dropper or a spoon. Remember to do this quickly since the mixture will start to harden as it cools off, making the molding process more difficult. The best thing to have perfect cannabis-infused gummy worms is to get the mixture into the molds as fast as possible. After you filled the gummy worm molds, lift them two inches from the table and gently drop them to eliminate any air bubbles or air pockets.
Place the edible gummy worm molds filled with the mixture into the freezer for 25 to 30 minutes to firm up.
Step 5 - Unmold edible gummy worms
After your marijuana gummy worms are cool and firm, unmold them and roll them on regular sugar to hide a bit of the taste of cannabis. Your edible gummy worms are ready! You can now eat them or store them for two to three days at room temperature. Freeze them if you are planning to store them for a longer time.
