Making DIY shatter gummies might sound complicated, but it’s easy to do if you have the right supplies and knowledge. Plus, making shatter gummies isn’t just fun and easy; it also has some great benefits.
What Is Shatter, and Why Is It Popular?
Shatter is a type of cannabis concentrate that has been extracted from the plant using a solvent such as butane, propane, carbon dioxide, or ethanol. This process yields a much more potent product than other forms of cannabis, with THC levels ranging from 70-90%.
The consistency of shatter can range from glasslike and brittle to thick and taffy-like, depending on the extraction process. Its popularity lies in its potency and ease of use—just shatter a small amount off and consume it in an edible or vaporize it for a powerful experience.
Why Make DIY Shatter Gummies?
Making shatter gummies is an awesome way to get the most out of your shatter experience. For one thing, shatter gummies allow you to dose your shatter more accurately than traditional methods like smoking or vaping. Plus, shatter is extremely potent since it is a highly concentrated extract, so you’re able to get a powerful dose of THC with each bite.
How to Make Homemade Shatter Gummies
The first thing you need to make shatter gummies at home is a good recipe, and although there are plenty of “from scratch” DIY gummy recipes to be found online, the vast majority result in gummies with unsatisfactory texture and inconsistent distribution of cannabis. To avoid these and other pitfalls, I strongly recommend using a gummy-making kit like the one made by Maestrodose. Their specially formulated gummy mix, combined with a gentle heating-and-stirring cycle, incorporates cannabis concentrates perfectly.
Plus, Maestrodose is easy to use, and the gummies have great flavor and texture. Visit their website to learn more about the infused gummy-making process.
The second thing you need to make shatter gummies is the shatter itself. You can buy pre-made shatter from your local dispensary or online, or if you’re ambitious, you can try to make shatter at home. Either way, once you have your shatter, it’s very important to decarb it before making gummies.
1) Decarb Your Shatter
Decarboxylation is a process that activates the THC in shatter, enabling it to be absorbed by your body. To decarb shatter, preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and put your shatter in a heat-resistant mixing container (I strongly recommend using a Pyrex-style measuring cup because it is heat-resistant and has a spout which will come in handy later.) Bake the shatter in the oven for about 45 minutes until it melts and turns a deep amber color. As the shatter melts, it will form fizzy bubbles. You’ll know it’s finished when the bubbles stop forming.
2) Prepare the Gummy Mixture
In the same heat-resistant vessel containing your decarbed shatter, add Maestrodose gummy mix and liquid ingredients (per recipe.) This is your gummy mixture.
3) Heat and Stir the Gummy Mixture
Heat and stir the gummy mixture in a stovetop water bath for 8 minutes. FYI, a stovetop water bath (also known as a hot water bath or “bain marie”) consists of any heat-proof container set directly in a larger saucepan of hot, simmering water.
4) Pour Your Gummies
Carefully pour the warm mixture into the gummy mold and transfer it to the fridge or freezer to set.
That’s it — you’ve just made your own shatter gummies! Enjoy these potent, delicious edibles and experiment with different recipes to suit your tastes.
Making shatter gummies is a fun and creative way to get the most out of your shatter experience. With the right supplies and knowledge, you can easily make shatter gummies in relatively little time. Plus, making shatter gummies can be a great way to control your dose and enjoy a powerful THC experience while creating some delicious edibles for you and your friends to enjoy.
