Understanding the Potency of a 10mg Gummy

A person lying in bed, with a hand reaching out to grab a sqaure cannabis gummy from the bedside table next to them. The focus should be on the person's relaxed expression and the anticipation of relief that comes with taking the gummy. Colors should be saturated and vibrant.

The 10mg gummy is often considered the baseline dosage for adult consumers. However, the effects can vary from person to person due to factors like body weight, metabolism, and tolerance.

Tolerance and Metabolism

  1. Tolerance: Regular cannabis users might find 10mg less impactful.
  2. Metabolism: Faster metabolism? Effects may wear off quickly.

Remember, the key is to start low and go slow, especially if you’re new to cannabis edibles.


Cannabis Gummies and Sleep

When it comes to sleep, not all cannabis gummies are created equal. Opt for gummies infused with strains known for their calming effects like Indica or CBD-rich options.

How to Use Gummies for Sleep: A Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: Choose the Right Gummy

Look for gummies with strains or ingredients conducive to sleep. Lavender and melatonin-infused gummies are also options.

Step 2: Timing is Everything

Consume your chosen gummy about 1-2 hours before you plan to hit the sack. This allows the edible time to work its magic.


Step 3: Stick to the Dose

Stick to a 10mg gummy if you’re starting out, but consider half if you’re sensitive to THC.

Step 4: Evaluate and Adjust

Keep a sleep diary to note how well the gummy worked and consider adjusting the dosage accordingly for future nights.

Easiest Best Cannabis Gummy Recipe

Cannabis gummies are a great way to enjoy cannabis edibles without the hassle of time-consuming baking.

While this recipe isn’t “from scratch” it will definitely but a hit for home edible making. And this recipe for cannabis gummies only uses three ingredients! The best part? These cannabis gummies have an extended life due to their commercially made base.

That means less waste, hassle, and a better product overall! Plus, these cannabis gummies can be customized to suit your specific needs and preferences.

Enjoy this delicious treat any time you want with minimal effort! 



728 grams of any gummy candies. This may vary with the equipment you use (how much you stir and froth it up) Try these individual flavors here. 

cannabis oil such as distillate, BHO, live resin, or RSO  (amount depends on the desired potency)

1 tablespoon Emulsifier, we like this one

1 Cannabis edible mold

1 tablespoon of Candy Flavoring of your choice


Set up a double boiler

Fill a saucepan with a few inches of water and place it over medium heat. Place a heat-safe bowl on top of the saucepan, ensuring it fits snugly without touching the water.

Add the gummy candies to the bowl

Pour the gummy candies into the heat-safe bowl.

Melt the gummy candies

Allow the candies to melt slowly, stirring occasionally with a heat-resistant spatula or spoon. Be patient as the candies melt, ensuring they fully dissolve into a smooth liquid consistency.

Add the candy flavoring

I use hard candy flavoring here when making my edibles for really fun and unique flavor combinations. Just add it in and stir it in a bit then:

Add the cannabis oil

Add the cannabis concentrate oil to the melted gummy mixture. Stir well until the oil is fully incorporated.

Add the emulsifier

After you have stirred in the oil a little, add the emulsifier

Blend for Homogeniuty

Blending up the mixture will be very important for consistency in dosing and also flavor. I recommend getting a heavy-duty immersion blender and stirring it for at least 3 minutes with that. Otherwise, stir for a very long time 10 -15 minutes vigorously.

Pour the mixture into molds

Carefully pour the mixture into the gummy molds of your choice. 

Allow the gummies to set

Place the molds or tray in a bread rack let the gummies cool and set completely. This process usually takes around 3 to 4 hours, but it may vary depending on the size and thickness of the gummies and the temperature of the room they are in.

Remove the gummies from the molds

Once fully set, gently remove the gummies from the molds.

Store and enjoy

Place the cannabis-infused gummies in child-safe bags and mark them as a marijuana product. Remember to label them clearly but don’t state any definitive MG amount unless you get them tested at a testing facility.

Always remember to keep them out of reach of children or pets.



Try not to use already sugared gummies because they come out really sticky.
