    They look great thanks for the recipe cannot wait to try it out hope mine turn out as good as yours I have the same moulds so I'm half way there

    Just one more question for you I'm from the UK some of the stuff I have is different I have guar gum it's a thickening agent will that be the same as using lecithin also I don't have any corn syrup the closest thing I can find in the UK it golden syrup I don't want to mess things up want top shelf gummies like yours

    Also I plan on using a oz plus trimm when my plants are done will that be to much

    Guar gum will help it all blend together better, it is not like lecithin. Lecithin is sometimes said to make butter/oil stronger, but that's not really a truth. Lecithin makes the thc/cbd bind better with our receptors make it more available giving you more an effect. Some say that it doesn't work, they are wrong. It is very important in making as potent edibles as possible. I made with and without and it is very noticeable. Get it if you can, I use sunflower lecithin. Golden syrup isnt the same I dont think, I read it's used like honey so it could be used but unsure of the taste. You can make your own corn syrup. Take 1 1/4 cups cane sugar and 1/4 cup hot water mix till it dissolves and there you go.

    Depends on how much oil you want to make, and how good the trim is. If I only had 1oz of trim would only make like 1/4 cup of oil/butter. That is enough to make 1 batch of my gummies (42) but servings would be 6 gummies. That is based off of me and my tolerance. When I do them if i use 1g of rosin i need 6, but when i use 2g's only need 2. Oil/butter will only hold so much thc/cbd, so to make stronger you need more oil making them more oily. With rosin you get far more thc/cbd in a smaller amount. Adding more rosin doesn't affect the texture like butter/oil will just the taste. Decarbed rosin has a burning taste and it lasts. Not like hot sauce lol, kinda like gives you heart burn a little. If you have eaten it you know what I mean so more gives more of the taste but only need 2 then and can eat 2 fast. Different jello flavors masks taste better than others. I like black cherry hides it well. Ate 2 grape ones not bad taste and I am stoned! Starting to hit me now wow hahaha. Going to make some more now if shit is ready.

    You know your stuff thought this was gonna be easy just had a bong and a spliff now my heads spinning reading this and I thought this was gonna be easy lol

    I'd love to make some rosin but I don't have a press and tried with some straighteners a while ago and the results where poor the trim will be good should see my candy kush she's covered in resin and all the small buds will be going in with the trim I should get over a oz

    I will order some lecithin off the interwebs and thanks for the corn syrup recipe had a heated debate with the other half about making it and as usual she was right I'm pretty confident that if I follow your recipe I will end up with some good shit

    yours look awesome and taking 6 to feel the effects you must have some tolerance I remember the first time I tried a edible it was round a friend's house he give me a pot brownie it was only I small peace I was a mess never been so high in my life

    Thanks, I do some reading lol. I dont have a real high tolerance but been around the block lol. The one I eat 6 of are that strong you would need like 4or so most likely. Now, ones with 2g's of rosin are strong. Trim isnt the best to make rosin, but if you do use a pre press. I use to use a pollen press when I used a straightener. It will work much better if you pre press. Need anything just hit me up bud. Let me know how it goes. This isnt hard bud dont worry once you do it you'll be like wow that was simple.
