Recipe by Penny Barthel

Infused gummies are the perfect vehicle for low-dose cannabis consumption. They are excellent for stress relief, or to relax the mind and body before sleep. To make cannabis gummies, you will first need to make or purchase a cannabis tincture. Find our simple homemade cannabis tincture recipe here. Please note, it can take a month or more to infuse! 

The cannabinoid profile for these gummies will naturally be the same as in your tincture, with three 0.9” by 0.5” molds roughly equivalent to one dropperful (⅛ teaspoon) of tincture. If you don’t have access to a silicone mold, you may use an 8 by 8-inch baking pan instead. Allow the mixture to solidify, then cut the gelled mixture into small, 3/4-inch squares.

You can find this recipe, as well as inspiration for other delicious edibles, in Penny Barthel's book, The Cannabis Gardener.


4 Tbsp fresh puréed watermelon

1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice

5 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp gelatin

1 Tbsp cannabis tincture


Mix all ingredients in a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or glass bowl.  

Allow to rest at room temperature for a minute or two to hydrate the gelatin.  

Heat in the microwave for 45 seconds.  

Stir, then heat for an additional 15 seconds if needed.  

Stir again, and quickly pour into gummy mold to cool.  

The appropriate dose depends on the strength of the cannabis tincture and the size of the finished gummy.
