Cannabis Tincture Gummies by Emily Kyle

Cannabis Gummies Made with Alcohol-Based Tincture

A favorite option for making these gummies is to use a cannabis-infused alcohol tincture.

Using tincture for your infusion will result in a more clear gummy that is less dense and more ‘jiggly’ than a gummy infused with traditional coconut oil.

The process for making a cannabis tincture is fairly straight forward and requires just cannabis flowers and high-proof food-grade gain alcohol.

If you haven’t made a cannabis tincture yet, click here for full instructions.

You will need to have this ready before starting the gummy making process.

The cooking process itself will evaporate off the alcohol in your tincture, leaving you with FECO.

Cannabis Gummies Made with FECO or RSO

Full-extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO or RSO, is the tincture mentioned above that has had all of the alcohol already evaporated off.

Yes, you can safely evaporate the alcohol off of an alcohol tincture to make full-extract cannabis oil.

This is what we will be using to make these gummies. It does not matter if you start this process with tincture or FECO.

Just remember that already made FECO is more concentrated and potent than a cannabis tincture that still contains the alcohol.

Cannabis Gummies with Tincture

Required & Optional Ingredients

Required Ingredient: Cannabis Tincture or FECO

We discussed how you could use either a cannabis tincture or FECO/RSO in this recipe, now it’s just time for you to pick your preference!

Required Ingredient: Jello

Fun Fact: I grew up 35 minutes from the home of the original Jello factory, which today stands as a Jello museum (that I still have never visited).

Jello is a simple gelatin dessert mix that can be found at any grocery store.

Each box comes in a variety of different flavors ranging from lemon, lime, orange, grape, raspberry, black cherry, and more.

In this recipe, Jello is included to add color, taste, and sweetness to the gummies.

This recipe does not work without the addition of Jello.

Note that Jello typically comes in two different package sizes, a 3-ounce, and 6-ounce package.

For this recipe we will be using one 3-ounce package of Jello.

Required Ingredient: Unflavored Gelatin

Unflavored gelatin may be a new ingredient for some cooks but have no fear; it’s a simple ingredient to work with.

It can easily be found in the baking section of your local grocery store or purchased on Amazon.

Gelatin is a colorless, flavorless, protein-based ingredient that helps to create the gummy texture we are looking for in this recipe.

This recipe will not work without the addition of gelatin.

For this recipe, we will be using 1 ounce of gelatin, equivalent to 4 Knox packs.

Required Ingredient: Lecithin

Lecithin may be a new ingredient you’re not used to cooking with, but it is an important staple ingredient for any cannabis kitchen.

Traditionally, lecithin is used as a binder to keep opposing ingredients together in recipes, like oil & vinegar in salad dressings.

Liquid lecithin is thick and sticky like molasses, but it is virtually tasteless. It can also come in liquid or granulated or powdered form.

For cannabis cooking, we prefer to use liquid sunflower lecithin.

In this recipe, the liquid lecithin helps to keep the FECO bound to the liquid ingredients – without separating.

If you skip the addition of this ingredient, your gummy’s may have some separation and leave an oily feel on the outside of the gummy.

Optional Ingredient: Super Strength Flavoring Oils

The Jello packet itself provides this recipe both color and flavor. For some people, that may be enough to mask the cannabis taste.

For those who want the extra flavor boost to help cover the taste of the cannabis in the gummies, these super-strength flavoring oils are the perfect addition.

Available in a wide variety of flavors, these oils can help mask the cannabis taste and make the flavor of your gummies really pop.

This ingredient is optional, but we highly recommend them.

Additional Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

This no-fail recipe for CBD or THC gummies made with tincture is the perfect recipe for delicious cannabis gummies that are made with an alcohol-based tincture or full-extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cannabis tincture
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid sunflower lecithin
  • 1 cup water or juice, divided
  • 3/4 ounce unflavored gelatin (3 Knox packs)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 ounces (1 small box) of flavored Jello
  • Super-strength flavoring oils, optional

Instructions

    For Making Gummies With Alcohol Tincture

    *Note: take extreme caution if you are using a gas stove when evaporating the alcohol from a tincture. Gas fumes are flammable. Ensure proper ventilation and common-sense safety measures are in place.

    1. Prepare a double boiler with water in the bottom pan over high heat. Once boiling, turn the heat off.
    2. Away from the stove or open flame, add the tincture to the top pan of the double boiler. Place the top pan atop the bottom pan.
    3. Carefully and slowly turn the gas stove back on to medium heat and allow at least 75% of the alcohol to evaporate from the tincture, stirring occasionally. The tincture will reduce in volume, leaving a sticky black oil.
    4. Once reduced, whisk in the lecithin. Turn off the heat and set it aside.
    5. In a small bowl, add 1/2 cup of water or juice. Gently whisk the unflavored gelatin into the liquid until it is well incorporated. The mixture will become very thick. Set aside to bloom.
    6. In a separate small saucepan on the stove, bring the remaining 1/2 cup of water or juice to a boil.
    7. Once boiling, add the lemon juice and the Jello packet to the hot liquid. Mix well to dissolve.
    8. Carefully and slowly pour the jello mix into the double boiler with the tincture and lecithin while whisking consistently until all ingredients are incorporated.
    9. Add the bloomed gelatin to the double boiler. If using flavoring oils, add your desired amount here.
    10. Whisk consistently for 3-5 minutes, ensuring no clumps form.
    11. Using a squeeze bottle or pipette, add the gummy mixture to your molds of choice.
    12. Transfer the molds to the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before removing the gummies from the molds.
    13. Store the gummies in the refrigerator or freezer

    For Making Gummies with FECO

    1. Prepare a double boiler with water in the bottom pan over medium-high heat.
    2. Once warm, add the FECO and lecithin to the top pan of the double boiler. Mix gently.
    3. In a small bowl, add 1/2 cup of water or juice. Gently whisk the unflavored gelatin into the liquid until it is well incorporated. The mixture will become very thick. Set aside to bloom.
    4. In a separate small saucepan on the stove, bring the remaining 1/2 cup of water or juice to a boil. Once boiling, add the lemon juice and the Jello packet to the hot liquid. Mix well to dissolve.
    5. Carefully and slowly pour the jello mix into the double boiler with the FECO and lecithin while whisking consistently until all ingredients are incorporated.
    6. Add the bloomed gelatin to the double boiler. If using flavoring oils, add your desired amount here.
      Whisk consistently for 3-5 minutes, ensuring no clumps form.
    7. Using a squeeze bottle or pipette, add the gummy mixture to your molds of choice.
    8. Transfer the molds to the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before removing the gummies from the molds.
    9. Store the gummies in the refrigerator or freezer

Notes

Lemon juice acts as a natural preservative and mold inhibitor. It does not lend a strong or noticeable flavor to the gummies.
