THC Gummy Worms
THC gummy worms are chewy, sweet cannabis-infused edibles. THC gummy worms are made with a gummy-like substance, usually gelatin, corn syrup, fructose, or sugar, and contain a THC concentrate like a distillate or cannabutter.
THC infused edible gummies come in all sorts of different shapes, from bears to fruit shapes to THC gummy worms. Weed gummy worms mostly taste like regular gummy candy but include a bit of an earthy taste that comes from the cannabis.
THC weed gummy worms, and other medicated gummies, are popular amongst cannabis consumers because they can offer longer lasting, and often stronger, effects than smoking or vaping cannabis. Weed gummies are also popular because they are a great way for people to consume cannabis discreetly, on-the-go.
The potency delivered by edible gummy worms is a strong reason to wade slowly into the consumption of cannabis gummies. THC gummy worms are like other cannabis infused edibles and have a longer onset time than smoking or vaping.

The effects of cannabis gummies can take up to an hour and a half before they are felt, but when you do feel them, the effects last much longer and can be much stronger than the effects of smoking cannabis. To have an enjoyable experience with THC gummy worms and other cannabis gummies it’s best to start with a low dose
, track your experience on the Jointly app, and consume more as needed.
THC gummy worms are available in most states where cannabis consumption is legal. You can also make your own cannabis gummies. Below are two different ways to make weed gummies.
How to Make Gummy Bears with Distillate
Cannabis distillate is a cannabis concentrate that has gone through a process to separate and isolate cannabinoids like THC or CBD from unwanted materials like pesticides and heavy metals. This makes distillate a great choice to make infused gummies.
If you are looking to make medicated gummies with whole plant benefits that include terpenes and flavonoids swap your THC distillate for Rick Simpson Oil to make RSO gummies. The RSO gummies will include a larger spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
Whatever type of concentrate you use it’s best to use a lab-tested product so you can measure the potency of your ganja gummies. This will help you have an enjoyable experience with your weed gummies, with no accidental overconsumption surprises.
