    1. No, you should be fine just keep it barely boiling for a few minutes, not too long, not too hot.

      THC depends on the potency:
      – 3.5G X 10%THC = 350MG
      – 3.5G X 20%THC = 700MG
      – 3.5G X 30%THC = 1050MG

      1. Its actually about half of what you said. Only about 50-60 percent of thc is activated fully and ready to be consumed orally, so 3.5 @ 10% would actually be closer to 175 mg

          1. Wrong again
            I cannot quote figures on Decarb itself but:
            Coconunt Oil, Cannabutter etc methods extract about 50-60% of THC content
            RSO Oil, Alcohol, Butane methods extract approx. 80-90%

    2. The potency is the potency and gram weight as described.. however, on the RUFFHOUSE STUDIOS video you see 100 bears made and the recipe says “makes 12 servings”….??well if 12 they’d be around 600mg ea, (depending on potency) and at 100 they’d be about 5mg each. How many gummies would be a proper amount of not too much nor to weak? Made it twice, first time I forgot to grind the decanted buds…(rookie!) & 2nd time got everything right, but still had a lot of made Gummies and left over gummi material so I wasn’t sure what the msg were?! Any suggestions for duze and mg from this recipe if I want 25mg or 50mg, assuming a 22-25% THCa flower@ grams called gir in recipe, 3.5.

  1. Where is the original recipe? This isnt it, it’s missing ingredients so its inaccurate. For some reason the full recipe disappeared off ruffhouse site this week and the link on your tube goes to this page. What happened?

    1. Sorry for the error, I updated the ingredients list and the directions. This site is for recipes specifically so I am putting all the recipes here to be better found and displayed in Google searches. Made some mistakes when inputting the data from other site.

        1. Hell, I use 28g of high quality flower every time (indica if i can get my hands on and confirm it), with 3/4 cup of coconut oil, after infusion im left with 1/2 cup of infused oil.

          1. Wow, that’s some strong oil. I’ve been using 1 oz and 2 cups of oil. I’ve been using the boxed Duncan Hines brownie mix that calls for 1/2 cup oil. I have 1 brownie before bed and sleep all night.

          2. Could I use 1/2 cup of oil to get the 1/4th of oil I need for the recipe with using 28 grams?

    1. It’s hard to answer that without knowing the THC content of the bud and size of the gummies but here is a general idea.
      7G X 20% THC = 1,400 MG available.
      Now let’s say you have 50 gummies.
      1,400MG THC / 50 Gummies = 28MG THC/ per gummie (theoretically)
      This is assuming you extract 100% of the THC in the extraction which is unlikely. You probably get 75% of the THC with this type of coconut oil extraction at best. It ALL depends of course on the potency of the oil but the only way to know for sure is to test the oil, each and every batch. Hope this is helpful.

  2. So can I substitute the coconut oil for vodka? I’ve seen other videos making cannabis infused vodka, just wondering if the gummies for turn out right?

    1. Alcohol based tinctures require 90+ proof alcohol such as Alcool, Isopropenol, etc. example RSO Oil (vodka is only 40 proof)
      Alcohol tinctures also require a very different cooking/boiling down process, compared to Coconut oil or Butter processes.
      You can find many RSO recipies and procedures with a simply Google search. just don’t blow yourself up.

      1. if i put 28 grams of flower into 14floz of coconut oil. how much mg theoretically is in each tablespoon? also how much mg per gummie using this recipe when i used this coconut oil?

  3. Hey guys,
    Was wondering if it is possible to use 3,5gs of bud & not use the Sunflower/Soy Lecithin? E.g could I halve the ingredients and still get some good quality bears?
    Cheers

    1. You would still get some decent but not as good or high quality as the sunflower/soy lecithin acts as a emusifier making the bud adhere better to the fats of the coconut oil

    2. As well as, or even more importantly, aside from the Lecithin aiding in mixing (emulsification) in the other ingredients, Lecithin aides greatly in how your gut absorbs THC. Some studies report 50% more absorption and quicker uptake of THC into your bloodstream.

      1. I’ve read that MCT oil provides improved absorption, thus eliminating the need for lecithin. I use it exclusively to make my infusions for sublingual dosing. But I wonder if it would work for making gummies.

    1. It said they stay good for only a few days in an airtight container at room temperature. For extended storage to put them in the freeze.

  4. In the video you yielded three 50 count trays, plus extra. You also said that 3 or 4 of these is a serving. Based on the recipe for one box of Jello and 1oz of gelatin you said that it’s for 12 servings, which would be 12×4=48 gummy’s. So how did you come out with three times that amount?

  5. Used the tincture extraction method for 1/4 solid shake used 10 mg tincture added cocunut oil to it to equal a 1/4 cup and used one extra packet of gelatin extra to get some added firmness firmness to the gummies while in your pocket.they are in fridge now but just the little bit of excess left of I munched wow this recipe is amazing

  6. This recipe was easy, straightforward, and delicious! On my second batch, I put the mixture into a squeeze bottle to distribute over the molds. This ended up being a lot faster and made way less mess than the dropper method.

    1. Yes squeeze bottle works but as I have experienced my first time you must be quick or it will solidify in the nozzle and then the nozzle burst off if you squeeze to hard, creating a delicious mess to eat lol. If you want take your time dont pour it all in the bottle at once, do it in batches while the remainder boils

      1. Go to a craft store,Look for Wilton’s candy making products,They have squeeze bottles that are silicone and meant for hot stuff,like to melt chocolate,etc… Thats what we use to fill the molds for our gummy bears,works great,no mess& you dont burn yourself while holding the bottle

        1. When I make chocolate I put a 4 cup glass measuring cup in pot of water as double boiler. Good for measurement and easy to pour molds with measuring cup.

  7. Happy December
    Mine came out super thick & hard…Did I not let it come to a roaring boil long enough?
    Cheers & thank you

    1. Heat carefully and slowly, never to a Boil. Boiling causes the sugars to solidify and clump, and also causes air bubbles, making the resulting gummies unclear and/or lumpy. It is also advantageous to remove the scum from the top of your mixture (let it cool a bit, then re-heat it) for clearer end product.

  8. 1/8oz converts to 3.544grams, but I see someone asked about using 7g (if just using flower and not rosin chips as well). Would you recommend using 7g or should it be sufficient with just the 3.544g as the recipe states? Also if just using flower should we still use the 1/2c of coconut oil as you stated in the video (because of evaporation) or should we just stick with the 1/4c?

  9. Very appreciated information sir.

    I’ve ordered the Mighty Fast herbal Infuser, for science.

    Are the 1/4 cup of tincture are the same (2 hours coconut oil vs 2-5 days alcohol tincture)? I’m lost. Would you make a tutorial to explain the differences between tinctures (oil and alcohol) and what are the benefits/advantages.

    Cheers, thanks a lot -Max

  10. I have made this recipe but it is sticky before I even can get it into the molds? What can I do to fix it? Also can I substitute canna butter for the oil?

    1. No Butter will separate and create greasy gummies. You can use a mixture of corn starch, icing sugar, (for sourness) citric acid as a coating to sprinkle or roll them in to get rid of oiliness and stickiness.

    1. next to zero. Smelly processes are (strongest) decarboxolating (mild) curing Butter or Coconut oil in crock pot.
      Making gummies not so much

  11. Love this! Definitely going to give it a try! With regards to the lecithin; I can’t find the liquid, only granules. Will this work? If yes, how much should I add?

    1. If you use powdered lecithin you only need 2/3rds the amount of liquid lecithin. For example if the recipe calls for 3 teaspoons of liquid lecithin you could use 2 teaspoons of powder instead.

      Lecithin increases bioavailability of the cannabinoids and helps bind water and fat together. In this recipe it’s binding the coconut oil to the water.

    1. As long as you use lecithin to bind the coconut oil you can prepare gelatin any way your confident in doing so.

  12. I bought CBD oil from Amazon would this work in this recipe? Replacing some steps and adding 1/4 cup of this to the recipe, good?

    1. As long as it’s coconut oil based. Liquid coconut will bind with the lecithin as well as solid coconut oil.

    1. Cannabutter will impart a buttery flavor. Coconut oil is used because it doesn’t really have its own flavor. In my experience as long as you have the lecithin to bind the fat and water together it works. Your mileage may vary.

      1. I find that unrefined coconut oil has an intense flavor I have trouble masking. I am going to try refined coconut oil to see if there it imparts less coconut flavor.
        Can you use sugar free jello?

        1. Do Not use Virgin Coconut Oil. If you use sugarless Jello U will need to add some other sweetener. Honey, corn syrup, etc

  13. Hey, could you give an equivalent from infused oil or butter to the candies weight. Like « with 0.05kg of butter you’ll have 0.2kg of strong candies »
    Thank you
    We’re cooking it from France !

  14. I ran into a couple issues on my first attempt with these, hoping someone can help me out for next time around…

    1) The coconut oil didn’t reduce from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup so I had to leave 1/2 of it sit for another time. This means I lost 50% potency and has me wondering what went wrong. My stove’s temperature could be incorrect, but it’s a pretty new appliance and other than that I followed the directions. I also make firecrackers all the time and have had no issues de-carbing at 250° with the same oven thus far.

    2) The recipe calls for “1 pack 6 oz Jello (any flavor)”. Jello packs are only 3 oz though. So I used (2) to get to 6oz, but I feel like that was wayyyyyyy too much. I struggled filling two bear trays before the mixture got so thick it wouldn’t draw up into the baster any more. So I had to just pour it out on a flat surface. Add to that they are tough to eat, extremely chewy. Seems like other people are having a similar issue–makes me wonder if the recipe has a type and it should only be 1 pack 3 oz Jello.

    1. 1. I often end up with over a 1/4 cup of oil and have used up to 1/2 cup of oil in this recipe without issue. I usually make a double batch of oil and freeze the extra. With adding more oil I usually add an extra TBS of gelatin so they firm up nicely.

      2. I like to keep my sauce pan rolling at 170F while i’m molding the gummies. This keeps it viscus and not as sticky.

    2. You’ll have to experiment with the Jello/Gelatin vs Oil amounts.
      To do so, you can always re-heat the mixture to add or adjust any ingredient you want. Or simply to keep it pour-able when adding to molds.

  15. How do you get the gummy‘s to come out clear? Like when you buy them at a professional store. Once I combined the oil with the weed it automatically becomes a darker color, and I don’t like that. Period if I’m making lime gummy‘s I want them to be green and not look dirty. Does anybody have any ideas how to get clearer beautiful gummy‘s?

  16. I love this pot gummy recipe . I made them for first time without messing up at all. Thanks 🙏 recipe

  17. The first time I made these, it worked great even though I messed up and used a 3oz box! Since then, I’ve made it 4 times and every time, the oil separates out. Any ideas? This time I tried boiling a lot less thinking that maybe I boiled out too much water. The first time is the only time I have done all steps back to back from fresh flower to complete gummies. Was that the difference? Since then, I’ve made the oil before and done the gummies part another day
