You can do it with tincture or with oil. Basically you make Jello with extra gelatin and some tincture. Pour into molds, chill, and they are done.
I need to figure out how to store them though. Storing in the fridge works okay, but it draws out a lot of water and the gummy is tough. But then again, if people like Haribo, then maybe that’s a good thing. Lol. I prefer my gummies soft.
I’m drying out my trimmed fan leaves to add to the trim jar in the freezer. I think by drying them first before freezing, there may be less chlorophyll in the final product. Not that I care that much for my sleep meds, but if I made edibles, it helps if the product is less “weed” tasting.
I have a question. Does the decarboxylate amount change based on the tincture, or does it stay the same?I like the shape of the Gummi Bears also.... looking forward to making my first batch.

I'm trying to decide if the first step will be separate or will be included in the JuJu Tincture.
I guess the amount doesn't matter. I don't really measure the Everclear. I make sure there is about an inch or two over the top of the decarbed material. The end result potency will depend on the evaporation at the end. I'm sure the potency also depends on the product used.
I was asking really to know if the decarb should be part of the indexed tincture or be independent of it. If the amount is specific, it probably needs to be included.
Sorry, I would have posted this yesterday but the thread got lost.....
I'm starting the index for the tinctures.....
If you are going to be using it as a tincture, the bud/leaf needs to be decarbed first. Decarb temp is going to be over the evaporation temp for alcohol, so it would boil down to resin before getting to decarb temps.
If you are using alcohol to extract the resin, then the plant material doesn’t need to be decarbed first. If used for dabs, it will decarb during combustion, or can be done seperately if used for edibles.
