Paleo Edibles: Easy & Healthy Cannabis Gummy Bear Recipe [Updated in 2020]

For the past few weeks, when I'm not changing diapers or pretending I remember the last time I took a shower, I've been exclusively focused on cannabis gummy recipe development (because life is still pre-tty awesome as a stay at home mom who writes about edibles).

I've made vegan gummies, anti-anxiety-anti-inflammatory-gut-health gummies, and these amazing paleo gummies.

The verdict is in… gummies are the BEST. edible. EVER.

I'll be making hard candy and lollipops next week and my verdict has been known to change, but I can't imagine a homemade edible that is this cute, simple and good for you. I just. can't. even.

I mean, look at these…

cannabis gummies

Arggh.. Don't you just want to eat them?

And yeah… I did put them in a little pot gummy bear smoke sesh, because I'm an adult.

Even though all of the cannabis gummies I made “turned out”, I wanted to start by posting this paleo cannabis gummy because they're so simple, tasty and (dare I say it?) good for you.

I don't eat a strict paleo diet, but I love these because they're a whole food and I can't imagine a better way to consume cannabis.

I used a berry puree for my base and a little honey for sweetener, but you could definitely use stevia or monk fruit sweetener to cut the sugar down or to make these ketogenic.

You can also substitute the puree and water combo for juice if you want to have a more classic gummy texture or get your sugar high on… but we'll get to all of that in a minute.

cannabis gummies

I was barely able to take photos of a few of these before they disappeared. I think one of the reasons these vanished so quickly is that I made them with a very low dose of cannabis tincture.

They tasted fantastic and no one was afraid they would get too high, so testers and family members gravitated back towards the fridge for another gummy every couple of hours or so.

I've been micro-dosing almost exclusively for over a year (4 years now) and I think this is a great opportunity to share some more information about it so you can decide if it's worth a try. If you just want the recipe… scroll on down!

Micro-dosing + Edibles

I was inspired to micro-dose these cannabis gummy bears because of this really good point made by Joe Rogan:

Joe Rogan: “How much should I eat of this pot gummy?”

Budtender: “JUST THE LEG!”

While it's funny, Mr. Rogan's commentary rings so true.

As an cannabis educator who writes about edibles, I hear so many stories about people getting feel-like-I'm-gonna-die high from one pot brownie.

I also hear from people who avoid edibles entirely because they never know what the effects will be and hate the feeling of couch lock, paranoia, and/or brain fog.

While a solid dose of cannabinoids is what some people need in order to alleviate their symptoms enough to feel good or as a doctor recommendation, many people have found better results using cannabis using much less than they think they need to.

Micro-dosing is both an art and an understudied science. It's the best way I've found to manage pain in the long term and stay clearheaded without getting anxious, but figuring out your perfect micro-dose takes patience and experimentation.

Instead of eating a whole 10-25 mg edible, many have found that using smaller, more regular doses of 2-5mg, balancing ratios, and incorporating raw/acidic cannabinoids makes this plant medicine… well, much more medicinal.

You can find out more about microdosing, ratios and dosage in this post.

I love making low-dose edibles so I can eat enough infused food to feel satisfied without feeling like I could have a meaningful conversation with a dolphin.

These gummies were mellow enough that I could eat at least three big gummy worms over the course of a few hours and be at full function.

If you'd like to be able to eat more or experiment more with micro-dosing, just cut the amount of tincture you add in half or double the rest of the ingredients.

Making Homemade Cannabis Gummies

I made these gummies using an alcohol based cannabis tincture. You could also substitute a 1/2-1 gram of decarboxylated concentrates or hash if you'd like them stronger. Whatever you use, make sure you calculate the dosage first..

I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to experiment using cannabis coconut oil one of these days and I'll get back to you on whether or not that works. If you've tried it, let us know what works in the comments below.

I used this grass fed gelatin from Amazon.  The gelatin makes these simple cannabis gummies a power house of protein, collagen and amino acids.

homemade cannabis gummy mold

And because I always get asked where these came from, I got this kit by the Modern Gummy and it has lasted me several years of heavy use.

Every time I make cannabis gummies, I do two batches (one with cannabis and one virgin one) and that fills the entire kit. One of these recipes would probably fill two of these gummy bear molds.

But if I could only have one mold, I'd get these cannabis gummies. They each contain a tablespoon which makes them easy to dose. They're also cute and you'll know they have something special in them, which can make life easier.


Paleo Berry Cannabis Gummies

In a saucepan, combine the following ingredients over medium-low heat:

2/3 Cup Pureed Raspberries, Blackberries, Strawberries or Blueberries (if using frozen berries, let them thaw first) [If you have juice and you'd rather use that than the pureed berries, go for it! Just increase the Gelatin by about 1/2 Tablespoon]

1/3 Cup Water

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

2 Tablespoons Honey (or maple syrup or other sweetener)


2-3 tsp Cannabis Tincture (depending on dosage)

Slowly whisk in:

3 Tablespoons Grass Fed Gelatin

Keep whisking until smooth and all ingredients are incorporated. Turn off heat. Using a dropper, fill your silicon mold with your gummy mixture (you could also a pan lined with parchment paper if you're in a pinch).

Allow to cool for about 15-30 minutes in the fridge.

Have you cooked with that before and what are you thoughts (pros/cons) on it?

        I’ve been using the CO for gummies for a few months now and what I can tell you is, they do melt quickly and if left at room temperature for more than 3 days will mold. Also whisk the crap out of it to incorporate or else it will seperate in the fridge.

        Hi, I just made some gummies for the first time and I used cannabis infused mct oil in them and they don’t seem to have separated at all in the fridge. I did use 1/2 teaspoon of lecithin in the mix and 2 tablespoons of the oil and used my straight mixer to blend while still on the heat to make sure it was incorporated evenly. I’ve had 3 over the last 7 hours and have a really nice buzz.

      I tried this recipe about a week ago and it was awesome! Instead of tincture, we had a gram of THC distillate that we used. It was pretty good, but the oil kept trying to separate from the rest of it. So the consistency of the dosage throughout the batch seems to vary

    GREAT information! I have been experimenting with different candies and trying to get the “right” gummy bear consistency. The question I have is : How do you store gummies?
    I tried to store them in the refrigerator in a sealed plastic container…Well all the sudden I noticed a liquid on the bottom of the container, like they were melting or something. I got them out and laid them on a paper towel to dry, but now I have hard rubber band texture gummies. I am not about to throw them away because I dont want to waste them, however they are NASTY! I don’t eat them very fast so I need to find a way to store them for longer lasting. What is your advise?

    A lot of people are wondering if you can use canna coconut oil which is what I used and it did seperate in the fridge but it was still so good…I live in a state where it is illegal so I have to make my own and I just started using the Mighty Fast diffuser, I’m guessing it’s similar to the magic butter machine…I’m going to try using vegetable glycerin next time because I would for it not to seperate when I put it in the fridge…I would post a picture if I could…but they taste great, they aren’t super strong so I’m going to use more herb next time for my oil.

    Hi Corinne,

    Am I ok to substitute Cannabis Tincture with a cannabis oil extract ? I’m not sure the difference between the two. The carrier oil is a coconut oil.

    I purchased this oil extract from Tilray. “Our Hybrid Drops are an oil extract suitable for oral ingestion and/or for use in food products. Drops come in a 25 mL bottle, and include a 1 mL dropper to assist with dosing

    Each mL contains approximately 15.0 mg total THC & 0.0 mg total CBD. Each bottle contains approximately 375.0 mg total THC & 0.0 mg total CBD – THC & CBD levels vary by lot

    For the purposes of calculating monthly allotment only, each Drops bottle is equivalent to 7 grams of whole flower (Equivalency: 3.6mL = 1g dried cannabis)”

    Also, if I am able to use the oil extract and follow the rest of your recipe, how many ml do you suggest adding?


  • Reply
    May 25, 2017 at 5:42 pm

    Additional to my previous comment, pretty sure I figured out the math if I am able to use the cannabis oil extract. I think if I wanted 5mg thc in each gummy, I would use 16.32ml for the mixture and if I wanted 10mg in each gummy, I would use 32.16ml?

    I’d like to add a comment as a runner who has suddenly developed IBS-like symptoms and who is getting treatment, but still has a marathon coming up. Sadly, they don’t condone a “weed break” on marathons so I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to handle dosing. I do actually sometimes run with a joint when I’m having a bad day and I need to get my run on. One of the benefits of micro-dosing, I am finding, is that I can run and not “run” if you catch my drift, and I think you do. It’s not a matter of wanting to get an artificial runner’s high but wanting to keep my digestive system at a steady state, which I can.

    I live with chronic daily migraine and discovered the magic of cannabis for treating that and thus for treating this awesome new development 😉 because of that. Running has always been my go-to treatment for the head pain and my mental health treatment too, so when I started developing this digestive situation which is so much more than “Dang, I have a tummy ache” but resulted in an almost 20 pound weight loss in 3 months (I look great, but feel horrible), and included inability to absorb nutrients, and not being able to run I finally decided I needed to take back my life. I am working with doctors, but also been working on my own “gels” or gummies to fuel my runs. I think I’m going to do with some ginger, turmeric, and pepper base because they are anti-inflammatory and follow your recipe for the amounts! Thanks!

          Hi there! I use infused coconut oil in my gummy recipe, but it probably isnt Paleo.
          1 packet of jello
          4 1/2 packets unflavored gelatin, such as knox or something similar
          1 cup of very cold water
          1/4 cup infused coconut oil (made with sunflower lecithin)
          1/4-1/2 tsp lorann flavoring extracts/oil
          1/4-1/2 tsp loranns mold inhibitor

          The sunflower lecithin helps to get everything all mixed in without separating, its an emulsifier. Soy Lecithin can be used but its a common allergen and can cause stomach upset in large doses for some people. It helps the oil to absorb and spread out, but it also helps to get the affects of the medicine faster. I also let them ‘dry out’ for a few days on a baking sheet.

    I made these with fresh organic ginger made into a simple syrup with organic sugar. I didn’t add other sweetener and no lemon juice. My goal was a fuel to run with (as stated above). I haven’t tested them running, but they turned out gorgeous and taste amazing.

    So I made a green dragon tincture as well as Honey infusion (both made with trim).. I plan to use both in this recipe. My question is how strong are your gummies? Using the dosage calculator (with plant material set at 15% thc) the tincture is atound 37mg thc per teaspoon and the honey is 34mg thc per teaspoon. When I calculate the recipe for gummies im at 3.2mg thc per serving (honey) & 3.5mg thc per serving (tincture) if i add that up im at 6.7mg thc per gummy. Does that sound accurate? Can I add more of either to make a stronger gummy without affecting the overall outcome of the gummies?
    Also my tincture has been steeping for two weeks and it’s not nearly as dark as yours. Mine looks lime green when i suck it into a dropper. So I haven’t strained it yet in order to hopefully keep getting stronger. Does it matter that I used trim? Will it get to that deep green color at some point?
    Sorry for the abundance of questions but I wanna get this right!

      How did yours turn out? I’ve been trying to figure out dosage myself. I don’t want to micro dose I just want a regular recreational dose, but I’m having a really hard time tracking down that kind of info. Specifically how many tsp I should use.

    I used this recipe today for the first time, and substituted infused coconut oil…It worked out perfectly! I used the same amount of coconut oil as tincture. I made two batches, one using fruit juice (Cherry) and the other using brewed tea (Sport Tea). Both batches came out without any separation, I think the key here is letting the gelatine “bloom”. I actually made an error and only used 3tbsp instead of the suggested 3.5 for juice….still turned out great…not sure what I would lose or gain with the additional .5 of gelatine.

      I made canna gummies with everclear tincture and no sugar jello rcipe firmed up nicely I put them in the freezer to store and when i checked them oh 24 hrs later there were ice crystals in the bags (150) gummies I let them dry on a towel and they dehydrated to 1/10 their size and dried up I took two of the tiny litlle suckers and was wasted all day what I am guessing is that the everclear and water evaporated and left the thc in the gummies my main concern is long term storage i think i will try a vacuum seal next time

    Hi Corinne, I am also new to this. I recently purchased the nova through your website and was happy with the ease of the process. I am currently infusing coconut oil using your recipe, however, my slow cooker only has two settings, high and low. After 4 hours on low, I checked the temp of the mix and it was 250f. Yikes, Much hotter than you recommend. I unplugged it and am letting it cool. Should I have left the cover off? I know I should purchase the magic butter machine but I’m a retired lady who is on a budget. Maybe in the future though. Did I ruin my good buds>

    Hi and thank you. I’m an older woman who smoked pot back in college in the 70’s but quit when life got busier with work and kids. Two years ago when it became legal, I decided I’d give growing a try. Why not? I of course grew more than my husband and I as well as friends etc could smoke so I’ve followed many or your recipes. Love the coconut oil butter, mix it with bittersweet chocolate for a delicious treat. I didn’t have as much success with gummies. I never thought about the fact that they would get moldy if not consumed rather quickly. I threw out a large bag yesterday so personally, I’ll stick with the chocolate which I keep in the freezer. Thanks for all of your knowledge!

    I went theought the comments trying to find out how many gummies the recipe makes and couldnt find it. Here is my results:
    1 recipe makes 205 gummies if you use the amazon bear molds (53 on a sheet 5 sheets in a box comes with the eyedroper for each)
    I like that gummy size (1cm x 2cm) as it makes about a 1mg THC gummy for the weed I used.

    Hey Corinne,
    I found you AFTER I tried the coconut oil version. All those people must be full of BS because we all learned in grade school that OIL does NOT mix with WATER (or juice). I’m pretty scientific and a decent cook. I don’t recommend that other method, but after reading just a bit on your site, I’m pretty sure that an alcohol based tincture will work so much better. I’ll let you know…

    I’m wondering if you have any guidance on dosage. I’m interested in making gummies for recreational use not micro dosing, but I’m having a really hard time finding anything about how many tsp I should use to get a certain number of mg per gummy. I realize that it depends on the product you start with the make the tincture, but even a ballpark would be helpful.

      Hi Sarah, I just made some today for the first time and I used 2 Tablespoons of my MCT Oil that had been soaking with buds after having been decarbed then heated for 18 hours at 170 degrees. I strain some out as needed to use. I think these are a good dose for me anyway. Not sure of what the dose is because this is from cannabis my husband grew last summer and we don’t have the money to get it’s strength tested. So try 2 Tablespoons on your first batch if not strong enough try 3 in your second batch and see if that’s what you are looking for. I had 1 this afternoon when they were set and then after dinner I was putting them in a baggie and decided to have another one and then around 10 I got another one, I have an awesome buzz right now it’s 11:45. Good health and good luck.

    I use soy lecithin soaked in fruit juice in a weed infused coconut oil gummy recipe. The lecithin stops the oil/juice separation when the gummies set. Without lecithin there are 2 distinct layers in each gummy.
    I also use my infused strained weed leftovers from infused oil making in cookies/brownie/muffin recipes.
    The infused weed/oil mixture is placed into a kitchen sieve and left to drain. I don’t try and squeeze every drop of oil out. 1 cup of oil to start, 3/4 cup infused oil is what is usually strained off, with very few solids. I use an Ardent to infuse 1 cup coconut oil with 1 oz of my homegrown.
    I base all my dosing on15% THC. With your calculator and my guessing, my gummies seem to average 50 mg THC per each. I’m basing that on the effects of 50 mg candies purchased from a retailer. The effects of my homemade ones are very similar to store bought 50 mg candies. I use the mj leaf molds purchased from Amazon.
    I’ll make a recipe only post.

    The biggest key to edibles is the decarboxylation of your weed first! You won’t activate the THC enough without it and waste your bud! Then I infused the coconut oil and made the gummies last night. I used an 1/8 of Rainbow trainwreck. Based on an infusion of 81% for coconut oil ( just google oil infusion for THC ) I got about 3 grams THC per small gummy with the molds I got on Amazon. They are awesome, nice mellow buzz and very relaxing and happy feeling. I am goin got try olive oil next time as it has a higher percentage of THC infusion.I am decarbing using the Ardent Lift Decarboxylator. I have only had it for 3 days and I am an edible making Machine! Making butter now and some Snickerdoodles with Jack Herer Strain are for dinner ?

    I’ve made gummies with nectar before and had the same problem. I think I had to double the amount of gelling agent; something is messing with the setting process. You also might need to boil the nectar to break down enzymes (I know pineapple juice/nectar must be boiled first in order to set).

      In this post, Corinne says that this recipe will probably fill two of the larger molds, and those have 63 cavities in each. I’m not sure how much this would fill a 50 cavity mold.

      If you’re wanting to find out potency, just make sure to use the dosage calculator and plug in the amount of servings you’ll have. You can do that HERE

    Render down your everclear tincture as far as you can. (do not do this over an open flame – VERY dangerous). Create your no-sugar jello recipe – or use 4 Tbs of gelatin with 1 cup juice concentrate (i use tart cherry or black cherry). Once your gelatin blossoms, heat it up to 140-160 degrees F. When it is smooth consistency – add your tincture. Continue at that heat until the alcohol smell is almost gone. (constantly mixing). Once the alcohol smell is gone – turn off the heat and decant the mixture into your molds. I create a soft crack mixture of 1 cup karo and 1 cup coconut sugar which adds to the “gummy” consistency and sweetens them up. I’m making CBG, CBD and THC gummies for all my friends. Using alcohol tincture works the best for me as you can accurately define your dosage and either dose up or microdose.

    tincture is really easy. Decarb your flower (CBD, CBG, THC) and then put it in the freezer overnight. An ounce fits well in a 16 oz mason jar. Let it cool for 24 hours and then cover your decarb’d flower with 195 proof or higher alcohol (everclear or you can get Kosher alcohol online pretty cost effectively) Make sure your alcohol has been in the freezer also. Let them sit for 24+ hours then strain the alcohol through a coffee filter. You should get a green or golden liquid that will make awesome gummies. Make sure you check your dosing.
