Gather Your Supplies: Ingredients List for Homemade THC Gummies

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Cold Water
  • 1-2 tablespoons Corn Syrup - Adds smoothness and prevents crystallization.

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Agar Agar Powder (or Gelatin if preferred) - Agar agar for a vegan option, or gelatin for that classic chew.
  • 1 package (about 85g) Flavored Gelatin Dessert Mix - Choose your favorite flavor to define the base taste of your gummies.

Special Ingredients

  • 3.33 grams THC-A Flower, Decarboxylated - This amount, assuming a 15% THC content, helps achieve roughly 10 mg of THC per gummy.
  • 1 cup Coconut Oil - Used to infuse with the decarboxylated cannabis. Coconut oil is a great fat source for THC infusion due to its high saturated fat content.

Special Equipment

  • Small Saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Silicone Molds - For shaping those delightful gummies.
  • Cheesecloth or Fine Mesh Strainer - For straining the infused oil.
  • Oven - For decarboxylation, which activates the THC.

Detailed Steps to Create Your Own THC Gummies

  1. Decarboxylate Your Cannabis
    • Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).
    • Prepare the cannabis: Break up the cannabis buds into small pieces and spread them evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Bake for 30-40 minutes to convert the THCA into THC.
    • Cool and grind the cannabis after it's been decarboxylated.
    • Tip: Make sure your oven’s temperature is accurate with an oven thermometer to ensure perfect decarb every time.
  2. Prepare THC-Infused Coconut Oil
    • Combine 1 cup of coconut oil with the decarboxylated cannabis in a saucepan.
    • Heat the mixture on low (do not exceed 200°F) for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
    • Strain the oil through cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer to remove the plant material, capturing the oil in a clean container.
    • Tip: Don’t rush the infusion process; low and slow is the way to go to fully infuse the oil without burning it.


  1. Make the Gummies
    • Mix agar agar with water: In a small saucepan, sprinkle agar agar over 1/2 cup of cold water. Let sit for a few minutes to hydrate.
    • Heat mixture: Warm the saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the agar agar is fully dissolved.
    • Add flavors: Stir in the flavored gelatin and corn syrup, continuing to stir until everything is smoothly combined.
    • Add THC oil: Remove from heat. Stir in your desired amount of THC-infused coconut oil. Mix thoroughly to ensure even distribution of THC throughout the gelatin.
    • Pour into molds: Quickly pour the mixture into your silicone molds before it begins to set.
    • Chill to set: Refrigerate the molds for at least 30 minutes, or until the gummies are firm.
    • Tip: Work swiftly once you add the THC oil as the mixture can start to set rapidly.

Finishing Touches

  1. Demold and Store
    • Once set, remove the gummies from the molds and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    • Dosage Caution: Be very cautious with the amount of THC oil used, especially if the potency is unknown. Start with a smaller dose and adjust based on the effects.
    • Storage: Label the container of THC gummies clearly to ensure they are not consumed accidentally or by unintended users.
