One of the most popular recipes on this site, Clean Eating Kitchen, is my recipe for making CBD gummies. But, that recipe is not vegan because it uses gelatin powder, an animal by-product.

For my plant-based and vegan friends, I’m re-creating the recipe using agar agar powder instead of gelatin. Agar agar is made from seaweed so it’s appropriate for vegan and plant-based diets.

What are Hemp Oil Gummies?

Hemp oil gummies include CBD, short for Cannibidiol. Hemp oil gummies are simply gummy treats that include this supplement.

The Harvard Health blog states that CBD has promising research supporting its use in treating epilepsy, anxiety, insomnia, and some forms of chronic pain. However, more research is needed and there can be some side effects associated with ingesting hemp oil.

As with any supplement, it’s important that you talk to your doctor to make sure it is right for you. And, it’s also important that you do your own research to make sure that CBD is legal where you live.

Recipe Steps

As mentioned, it’s very easy to make your own CBD Gummies or just plain gummies. This recipe for Homemade Vegan Gummies only has three simple ingredients.

Best of all, there are no artificial colors, artificial flavors, or animal products in these high quality gummy candies.

Step One

To make the gummies, you’ll heat the juice in a saucepan to a simmer. You can use whatever type of fruit juice you like. To avoid too much sugar, use 100% fruit juice like pomegranate juice.

Step Two

Next, whisk in the agar agar powder, stirring occasionally until the ingredients are combined and the mixture starts to boil.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

As always, please do see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Three

Turn off the heat and add two milliliters of CBD oil (or just leave it out). Give the mixture one final whisk.

Step Four

The last step is to pour the mixture into your mold. You can do this without spilling by transferring the mixture into a small pitcher.

Step Five

Divide the juice mixture evenly into your molds. Place the molds on a baking sheet and set it in the freezer or the refrigerator to set.

I used these heart shaped silicone molds. This recipe for how to make vegan gummies makes 30 pieces total, or 15 2-piece servings.

Wait at least 30 minutes before removing the gummies from the molds. Store the gummies in the fridge for up to 10 days.

Expert Tips & Substitutions

  • Use any type of mold you like. To make vegan gummy bears, use a gummy bear mold.
  • If you don’t have a mold, just pour your mixture into a square baking dish and cut your vegan jello into squares once it has set.
  • Be sure to use real fruit juice for the most nutrition in your vegan gummies.
  • If you want to add some sweetness, add 1-2 tablespoons of organic cane sugar.

FAQs

How much CBD is in each gummy?

Two mL or two droppers as recommended of the Medterra 3,000mg tincture includes 200mg of CBD. So, each serving of two gummies will provide about 13 mg or CBD. To make the gummies more potent, you can add up to 4 ml of CBD oil (or 4 droppers-full of the Medterra 3000 mg bottle).

What is the texture of vegan gummies?

This recipe is not too sweet with a nice soft texture. These gummies are less chewy than gummies made with gelatin.

What is agar agar?

It is made from seaweed. You can buy it in powder or flakes. Be sure to get the powder for this recipe.
