This tried and true, no-fail recipe for cannabis gummies made with oil is the perfect recipe for delicious cannabis-infused gummies that do not sweat or separate once prepared. This guide includes options for different infused oils, flavorings, sugar-free options, and more.
Luckily, I have tried them all and worked to put together this no-fail guide on making the perfect cannabis gummies made with oil or butter.
By following these easy directions, you can create a delicious cannabis gummy that is the perfect texture and consistency, with no separation or sweating.
However, I recognize that that gummy taste and texture preferences as subjective, and for this reason, I recommend you try this recipe with *non* cannabis-infused products first.
That way, you know you like the taste and texture of the recipe before incorporating your hard-earned cannabis products into the recipe.
If you don’t have cannabis-infused oil available or are looking for a gummy alternative, I also have these different gummy recipes available.
The endocannabinoid system is meant to help maintain homeostasis, or balance in the body.
One way we can support our endocannabinoid system is by nourishing it with the powerful anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties found within the cannabis plant.
CBD is not intoxicating, meaning it does not give the feeling of intoxication or ‘being high’, while THC can be intoxicating and induce a high feeling.
Both offer many therapeutic health benefits, making them a favorite choice for many of my Cannabis Compass Course students.

WHY CBD OR THC GUMMIES?
Consuming cannabis edibles is a way of consuming CBD or THC other forms of cannabis in food.
For many people, the thought of cannabis edibles conjures up stereotypical images.

WHAT ARE CBD OR THC GUMMIES?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid taking the wellness scene by storm, and for a good reason.
Δ9-THC, known as Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, is a cannabinoid loved by both medical and recreational cannabis consumers.
Many anecdotal and evidence-based theories have demonstrated both CBD and THC’s therapeutic value for anxiety, pain, and inflammation.
Consuming CBD or THC gummies may help to improve your physical and/or mental health by interacting with our body’s endocannabinoid system.
Just imagine a friend accidentally eating too much of a ‘special brownie’ and subsequently freaking out or passing out.
Thankfully with the rapid legalization of cannabis, talk of CBD or THC edibles has become much more educated, informed, and diverse.
Along with brownies and cookies, gummies and gummy bears seem to be among the most popular edible choices on the market, especially for first-time consumers.
Gummies continue to be a consumer favorite because they are relatively easy to make, enjoyable to eat, and easy to dose once you know how they affect you personally.
WHY HOMEMADE EDIBLES ARE BETTER THAN STORE-BOUGHT EDIBLES
As a Holistic Cannabis Practitioner and registered dietitian, my clients come to me looking for ways to improve their health through a holistic lifestyle approach.
An individually designed cannabis regimen is an excellent addition to any healthy lifestyle; however, pairing the perfect regimen with a healthy diet can be tricky.
Unfortunately, many of the cannabis-infused products on the shelves today are filled with ingredients that don’t support good health, including high fructose corn syrup, artificial food dyes, artificial sugar, or tons of unnecessary added sugar.
Like you, many people I’ve worked with are managing their health and wellness with diet and lifestyle changes, which means these products are not right for you or them.
By making your own Healthy Cannabis CBD or THC gummies at home, you will have more control over the ingredients you use, the quality of the ingredients, and the final dosages.
Properly dosing cannabis is the #1 question I continue to receive on Instagram, in my Well With Cannabis Facebook Community, or real life.
The answer to the dosing question is not cut and dry and is not the same for everyone.
A starting cannabis dosage should be made on a case-by-case basis for each individual, but no matter how you start, it is always recommended to start low and go slow.
There are different concentrations of CBD or THC oil and different situations for which various concentrations would be appropriate.
Thus, different dosages are required for different individuals.
That is why I offer my in-depth Cannabis Compass Online Training Courseto help individuals like you determine your own perfect dose.
ESTIMATING YOUR FINAL DOSE
Because there is some variability with this recipe, it will take a bit of math to determine how many THC or CBD milligrams are in your final product.
This is because THC or CBD oil can come in many different concentrations, and the mold wells are all different sizes.
To estimate your final CBD gummies dose, you will need to know:
- What concentration of cannabis oil or concentrate you are starting with?
- How many final gummies did you end up with?
This recipe calls for 1mL of CBD or THC concentrate. Your concentration will determine how strong your final product is.
- 1mL of a 500mg oil will provide 16.6mg of CBD
- 1mL of a 500mg concentrate will provide 500mg of CBD
You will divide your concentration by the total number of gummies you make.
For example, if your mold yielded 50 gummies, you will get:
- 16.6mg of CBD oil divided by 50 gummies = 0.33mg per gummy
- 500mg of CBD concentrate divided by 50 gummies = 10mg per gummy
See the difference? Concentration matters.
This is the formula for determining your final dose:
- Total milligrams of CBD or THC used divided by the final number of gummies = amount of CBD or THC per gummy
