Stoney Creek is home to beautiful trails and natural landscapes, it is the perfect place to get a little stoned and go for a nice walk. Alternatively, cannabis gummies are lovely to enjoy at home, curled up and watching a movie. It is no secret how cold it gets in the fall and winter months in Stoney Creek. However, no matter what you’re in the mood for, our dispensary, Elevated Minds, has something for everyone to enjoy. Edibles are not only for experienced cannabis enthusiasts. Gummies are also great for the canna-curious.
Before weed was legal, using edibles was a bit of an unpredictable experience. The cannabis industry has come a long way since the days of accidental high dosing of brownies and cookies. Now, edibles are made with controlled dosing and are available in different varieties. This includes gummies, or what we now know as soft chews!
What Are Gummies or Soft Chews
The short version is that cannabis gummies are edibles. Foods and drinks that contain cannabis are edibles. Weed Gummies, or Soft Chews are gummies made with a CBD or THC concentrate infusion.
How Are Weed Gummies Made
In order to make cannabis gummy, you need to isolate the CBD and THC content. In some cases, CBD and THC can be mixed together to create a more balanced effect. This extraction process is either done by a CO2 extraction method, or a solvent extraction method to create a concentrated matter of the product. In addition, cannabutter can also be used in some edibles to create edibles.
Infused or non-infused, all gummies contain the same three ingredients: sugar, thickener, and flavour. CBD or THC is added once the cooking process is complete, and before the gummies harden since the cannabinoids in the concentrate begin to weaken when they are heated above 200 degrees Celsius.
In some cases, gummies are not suitable for those with a vegan diet since all gummies use a thickener, which sometimes includes gelation, a product that may contain animal collagen. Some products can be made with vegan fruit pectin, which makes them vegan-friendly. Always check the label to see what’s included in your package if you do have dietary restrictions!
