CBD: The Perfect Pairing for THC Gummies
Adding CBD is one of the best ways to enhance your THC gummies. CBD and THC are compounds found in cannabis, but CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high. When combined, CBD helps balance out the THC, reducing anxiety or paranoia and providing a more relaxed experience.
CBD also has benefits, like relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting better sleep. Adding CBD to your THC gummies gives you the best of both worlds. You can start with a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD and adjust based on the effects.
To make CBD-infused THC gummies, use CBD oil or CBD isolate and add it to the gummy mixture while heating. For oil, start with 1-3 droppers full for every batch of gummies. Mix well until fully incorporated. Add 50-100 mg of powder per batch of gummies to isolate.
You’ll want to get your CBD from a reputable source to ensure it’s high quality and contains little to no THC. Once you’ve added the CBD, make your THC gummies as usual. The CBD will blend right in with the rest of the ingredients.
CBD and THC are the perfect pair, and when you combine them in gummies, you get a tasty treat that provides a balanced, full-body buzz. Whether you want to relax, relieve pain, sleep better, or enjoy an intoxicating high, CBD-infused THC gummies have you covered. Why stick to plain THC when you can enhance your experience with the benefits of CBD?
Vitamins & Supplements: Nutrients That Enhance Your High
Adding certain vitamins and supplements to your THC gummies can enhance their effects in amazing ways. Here are a few to try:
Vitamin C helps your body absorb THC more efficiently, intensifying and prolonging your buzz. Crush up 500-1000 mg of vitamin C tablets and mix into your gummy recipe. The tangy flavor complements weed edibles perfectly.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3s are excellent for both body and mind. They help reduce inflammation in the brain and boost neuron health. Throw in a teaspoon of flax or chia seeds for a nutritious dose of omega-3s in each gummy.
Many people are magnesium deficient, which helps regulate mood and stress levels. Deficiencies in magnesium have even been linked to anxiety and insomnia. Add 150-300 mg of magnesium citrate powder to your gummies to promote relaxation and enhance your high.
Black pepper contains piperine, which increases the bioavailability and absorption of many supplements and drugs, including THC. Grind in 1/4 teaspoon of fresh black pepper to make the effects of your gummies more potent.
Mixing and matching these add-ins lets you create custom gummies tailored to your needs and tastes. Get creative and see which combinations you enjoy the most! Your enhanced edibles will take your high to the next level.
Caffeine: An Energizing Addition to THC Edibles
Caffeine provides an energizing kick when added to THC edibles. Mixing in coffee, tea, or an energy drink makes it easy to create a buzzy, caffeinated cannabis treat.
For coffee-infused gummies, brew a pot of strong coffee using a coffee machine and let it cool. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of the coffee into your gummy mixture as you add the gelatin and other ingredients. The coffee flavor will come through in the finished gummies. The stimulating effects of caffeine in coffee match well with the euphoria of THC in marijuana.
Loose-leaf teas with robust, earthy flavors like matcha green tea, masala chai, or Earl Gray blend well with cannabis. Steep 2-3 tea bags or 1 tablespoon of loose-leaf tea in 1 cup of hot water. Let the tea cool and strain out the tea bags or leaves. Add the tea to your gummy mixture, starting with 2-3 tablespoons and adding more to taste. The tea will add flavor and a dose of caffeine to give your THC gummies an extra kick.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite energy drink to the gummy mixture for a serious energy boost. The sugar, caffeine, and herbal supplements commonly found in energy drinks will be infused into the gummies. Popular choices include Red Bull, Monster, and Rockstar. Start with a small amount, as the flavor of energy drinks can be overpowering. The combination of energy drink ingredients and THC is potent so these gummies may be too strong for inexperienced or sensitive users.
Jazzing up your THC gummies with caffeine is a simple way to create an edible experience that awakens your mind and enhances the effects of cannabis.
Start with a small dose to gauge your reaction before consuming more. Moderation is key to having an enjoyable, energized high.
Adaptogens: Herbs That Amplify and Sustain Your High
Certain herbs, known as adaptogens, can enhance and prolong the effects of THC when added to gummies. Adaptogens are plants that help your body adapt to stress and promote balance. Some popular options for THC gummies include:
- Ashwagandha is an ancient Ayurvedic herb that reduces anxiety and stress. Adding a bit of ashwagandha powder to your gummies may intensify feelings of calm and euphoria from the THC.
- Rhodiola rosea is another adaptogen known for boosting mood and cognitive function. A tiny amount of Rhodiola extract in your gummies can make your high feel more vibrant and pleasurable.
- Maca powder comes from a root vegetable in Peru and is rich in compounds that regulate hormones and boost energy. Adding maca to THC gummies may produce a more vibrant and long-lasting high.
- Astragalus is an adaptogen used in Chinese medicine to boost immunity and vitality. When added to THC gummies, astragalus may make your high feel more energetic and uplifting.
- Cordyceps are medicinal mushrooms that enhance oxygen utilization and athletic performance. Cordyceps powder added to THC gummies could produce an intensified body high with tingling sensations.
You only need a small amount of these adaptogens, usually 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per batch of gummies. Start with less, as the effects can be potent when combined with THC. Adaptogens are generally safe, but check with your doctor if you’re on any medications.
Using adaptogens is a great way to customize your THC gummy experience. They can amplify certain desirable effects of the high, like euphoria or creativity, while also helping sustain the long-term effects. You can create your perfect balance of THC and adaptogens with some experimentation.
Superfoods: Nutrient-Dense Ingredients to Level Up Your Edibles
Superfoods are nutritional powerhouses that can boost the health benefits of your THC gummies. Adding some of these ingredients will increase your edibles’ antioxidant content, essential fatty acids, protein, and beneficial plant compounds.
Chia seeds are a fantastic omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and magnesium source. Just 2 tablespoons contain 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and 5 grams of omega-3s. Chia seeds have a mild nutty flavor and crunchy texture that pairs great with the sweetness of gummies.
It contains curcumin, a compound with potent anti-inflammatory effects. Turmeric gives gummies an exotic, earthy flavor and bright yellow color. Add 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric powder per batch of gummies. You can also make turmeric paste by mixing ground turmeric, black pepper, and coconut oil. Add 1 tablespoon of the paste to boost the health benefits and improve absorption of curcumin.
This meal is made from ground flaxseeds, a top source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids called ALA. Flax meal has a subtle nutty flavor and can be added to gummies without significantly changing the texture. Use 2-3 tablespoons of flax meal per batch of gummies.
Maca powder is derived from maca roots and contains macamides and macaenes, which can help balance hormones and boost energy and mood. Start with 1 teaspoon of maca powder per batch of gummies. The malty, nutty flavor of maca pairs nicely with chocolate or peanut butter gummies.
Hemp hearts, the shelled seeds of the hemp plant, are protein-packed and full of omega-3s and magnesium. Their soft, creamy texture blends seamlessly into gummies. Use 2-3 tablespoons of hemp hearts per batch to add extra nutrition without changing the flavor or consistency.
