Cover the mixture and put it in a water bath before placing it in an oven set at 250° F for one-twenty minutes or two hours. (Remove and stir halfway through.)
Withdraw the oil from the oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes. After that, strain the oil through a strainer or filter. Squeeze the oil out of the cannabis and measure out one-fourth cup for the recipe.
Next, take a regular-sized saucepan and pour the infused oil and water in it while whisking it continuously. Keep stirring until the mixture comes to a boil. Then, combine unflavored gelatin into the mixture while continuing to mix. After that, whisk the flavored gelatin and then keep stirring for about five minutes. After it has mixed well, bring it to a rolling boil.
Now, comes the most awaited part where you mold your gummies and give them shape. After reducing the heat to low, take some molds and spray them with a cooking spray.
