There are a plethora of weed edibles that you can try and make at your home. However, out of all the edibles out there, cannabis oil gummies are perhaps the best. Also known as ganja gummies or weed gummies, cannabis gummies are quite small. Eating them is secure, and there is not much mess involved during their preparation. Plus, you can make them in several different flavors, which is a huge bonus.
Since you use cannabis oil to prepare these gummies, you can decide their potency as well. Some like to keep it subtle and delicate, while others prefer it to be on the higher side. A common misconception people have about cannabis gummies is that they melt if kept outside for extended periods. In reality, they do not melt, reason? Well, for starters, cannabis gummies and Jell-O are two completely different things. Because of this, carrying cannabis oil gummies around is remarkably more uncomplicated as you do not have to keep them refrigerated all the time. They can last long without a cold temperature and retain their taste and texture.
How to Start: Choosing an Extract
Some of you may know that hash oil is the critical ingredient for preparing canna oil gummies. Because of this, the potency is strong, but you do not get the strong flavor of weed that is generally present in most edibles. However, remember that the extract you choose for your gummies will dictate their taste. You have two main options when it comes to selecting a starting extract. These options are:
Preparing canna gummies with tincture is more straightforward in comparison to using hash oil as an extract. However, tincture extract will make your gummies taste a bit like weed. If that is something you do not require, choose hash oil.
2. Hash Oil
Hash oil is low in green matter, which makes it an ideal extract for making canna gummies without the taste of weed. However, this method does require you to be patient. If you plan to use hash oil extract, it would be advisable to go for its purest form.
