Discover how to make CBD Gummies.
This quick and easy recipe only takes 45 minutes and will give you 50 green tea and lemon-flavored CBD gummy bears.
Gummy bears were invented by a German entrepreneur, Hans Riegel, in the 1920s after he formed a candy company called Haribo. The squishy lollies have since become a staple to cure any sweet-tooth around the world. You can find them in a variety of colors and flavors, all equally satisfying!
Although, unlike the traditional gummy bears, which can be found in any supermarket, it can be a bit more challenging to get your hands on cannabis-infused varieties. But luckily, they’re not too difficult to make yourself.
Before we go any further, let’s clarify what CBD is, and why you might want to get your hands on some delicious CBD gummies.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is derived directly from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa and is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid widely recognized for its therapeutic benefits. The compound has been shown to reduce the severity and frequency of seizures, improve insomnia, alleviate anxiety, and even help people suffering from chronic pain.
CBD is most commonly in the form of CBD oil. However, it’s also available in a variety of products, including waxes, capsules, concentrates, sprays, and vapes. Pure CBD (CBD isolate) oil does not contain the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, and therefore won’t give you the euphoric “high” commonly associated with marijuana.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that there is no potential for abuse or dependence, and there have been no public health problems associated with pure CBD usage.

There are a lot of CBD oil edibles on the market, and if you’re purchasing them on a regular basis, it can quickly add up. Luckily, you can save some money and make them yourself. So, if you want to enjoy the perceived health benefits of CBD with a little throwback to a nostalgic candy favorite, here’s a recipe for how to make CBD gummies.
CBD Oil Gummy Bears Recipe
(Green Tea and Lemon Flavor)
It’s quick and easy to make CBD Oil Gummy Bears–and they are delicious! This recipe only takes 45 minutes, and you end up with approximately 50 gummy bears with 10mg CBD dosage. We’ve infused green tea for a boost of caffeine, used coconut water and added a touch of lemon to create a refreshing flavor. However, you can adjust this depending on your preferences and taste.
The recipe below also uses grass-fed gelatin, although if you need a vegetable alternative, you can try using agar-agar powder (although, be warned: this will change the taste). Enjoy!
- Silicone gummy molds
- Measuring Cup
- Dropper or Pitcher
- 5ml of CBD Oil- Hemp Healthy 3000mg Full Spectrum (contains 100mg CBD per 1ml serve)
- ½ cup of coconut water
- 2 x green tea bags (switch to herbal tea depending on your preference)
- ¾ cup lemon juice (adjust flavor accordingly)
- 3 tablespoons of raw honey (or your choice of sweetener)
- 1 ½ tablespoon grass-fed gelatin (you can switch with agar-agar powder for a vegetable alternative)
- ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
Calculate the quantity you need to add as follows:
CBD oil = number of gummy bears x desired dosage (mg)
For example, if you want to make 50 gummy bears with a 10mg dosage, you will need to use 500mg. Once you’ve added the CBD oil, whisk thoroughly until the CBD is fully integrated.
