CBD gummies can have the same benefits for pain management, sleep disorders and more as other CBD-infused products and recipes - plus, they’re super fun to eat!
Raspberry Gummy Ingredients:
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup dried hibiscus flowers or 6 hibiscus tea bags
- 3 tablespoons dried raspberry fruit powder
- 1-1/2 tablespoons of white sugar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
- 4 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin
- CBD Oil (measured out based on how strong you’d like each gummy)

CBD Gummy Recipe:
- Bring water to a boil and pour it over the hibiscus flowers (or hibiscus tea bags) in a cup or bowl.
- Let the mixture steep for 5 minutes before straining out the flowers. Measure out 3/4 cup tea and discard the remaining liquid.
- Place the hibiscus tea in a saucepan along with the dried fruit powder, sugar and lemon/lime juice. Stir until it’s well combined. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat, cooking until hot but not boiling.
- Slowly sprinkle the gelatin mixture into the pot, whisking continuously to ensure the gelatin dissolves.
- Cook the mixture over medium-low heat until the gelatin is completely melted and the mixture is smooth and glassy.
- Remove the mixture from the heat and add the CBD oil. Stir well, until the oil is well-dispersed.
- Place the gummy mold on a rimmed baking sheet. Using a spoon, carefully fill the gummy mold with the mixture. The liquid will begin to solidify after it’s removed from the heat, so try to work quickly! Remove any large bubbles by poking them with a toothpick or gently tapping the mold against the countertop.
- Chill the gummies in the refrigerator until they’re firm, about 2 hours.
- They’re ready for eating and decorating your cupcakes with!
