Different Types of THC Gummies and How They’re Made

Gummies are quickly becoming one of the more popular ways to consume cannabis, and with advances in the manufacturing process, they’re also one of the most consistent when it comes to quality and potency. 

When you pop a gummy, you know exactly what you’re getting—a precise amount of cannabis concentrate that’s calibrated to give you the exact results you’re looking for. 

There are tons of options when you’re shopping for gummies—various strengths, flavors, shapes, strains—giving you the ability to customize your experience. All of these choices may seem exciting or overwhelming (or both!) but never fear, we’re here to help sort out your options. 


Different Types of Gummies

Sativa vs Indica vs Hybrid

All marijuana strains fall into three categories: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid. Each offers a unique effect and experience. As cannabis experts continue to cultivate new breeds, new strains continue to arise.  

For a creative boost with enhanced focus, look for a Sativa gummy. They come in all kinds of flavors, shapes, and dosages—making them a big hit with both beginners and experienced consumers. Some people who like Sativa gummies say they also help alleviate stress and fatigue. 

Indica gummies have a more relaxed, body-centric experience—they’re great for unwinding or as a sleep aid. Since Indicas have these great relaxation properties, you might want to indulge after a long day for pain and muscle tension relief. Like Sativa gummies, Indica gummies come in a wide range of flavors and dosages. 

Hybrid strains are a blend of Indica and Sativa genetics. They offer a balanced experience that can vary depending on the specific product. 


Types of THC Gummies

In addition to the specific dominance, you’ll want to consider THC or a combination of THC and CBD to give you the experience you’re looking for. 

THC is the primary psychoactive cannabis compound—it’s what gives you that “high” feeling. Most CBD comes from hemp and produces a more relaxed and mellow feeling than THC. Gummies with a THC/CBD combination content offer the best of both worlds—an exciting high with a soft landing. 

Edible cannabis gummies come in many shapes.



How Are Edible Gummies Made?

Crafting the perfect gummy starts with extracting (or isolating) the THC and/or CBD from the plant. This is your cannabis concentrate, which could be either live resin or distillate. The biggest differences between these two concentrates are the levels of terpenes and THC. Live resin has the highest terpene levels, while distillate has incredibly high THC levels and almost no terpenes, although some gummies are flavored with cannabis-derived or botanical terpenes.

Before infusing the gummies with the concentrate, the primary ingredients (sugar, a thickener like gelatin or pectin, and flavoring are mixed, heated and poured into molds. If you’re looking for a vegan-friendly treat, go for gummies made from pectin, as gelatin comes from animal collagen. 


Edible and Gummy Dosage Guide

When you’re starting gummies, there’s one important thing to remember: start low and go slow. 

Another thing to remember is that gummies deliver a punch that’s stronger than flower. You may feel the effects more slowly, but they’ll last longer. Again, start with a lower amount and increase as you like. Finally, have a snack before you have your gummy dessert—it will deliver a more consistent experience and keep your tummy on an even keel. 

Ask your favorite Budtender to show you the packaging and explain how many milligrams of cannabis is in each gummy.
