How can gummies and gut health be related you might ask. Let's start with the basics. In order to make gummies you need gelatin to act as a thickening agent, and Amandean's grass-fed, unflavored gelatin is made from the prolonged boiling of connective tissues, from grass-fed cows. The result is a broth that, during the process, will evaporate, leaving a solid gelatinous layer. You could drink the broth, of course, but we bet you'd rather indulge in some delicious home-made gummy snacks instead. And, in this recipe we're adding in the healing effects of CBD oil.

What's the fuss with CBD Oil?

CBD oil has become an increasingly hot topic ever since some American states have legalized medical marijuana. This powerful compound with no psychoactive effects has several potent anti-inflammatory properties that, amongst other, can help to manage certain conditions that originate in the gut and digestive system, such as inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and even obesity.

To the surprise of many, our brains actually naturally produce cannabis-like chemicals. These receptors belong to the endocannabinoid system (ECS), whose role is to maintain balance in our body (homeostasis). In other words, ECS is responsible for maintaining a stable internal environment despite changes happening in the external one, that could be caused by a poor diet or some health issues. In these terms, hemp oil helps to manage both pain and inflammation in the so-called “second brain” by affecting specific receptors.

Beef gelatin powder on the other hand, helps to repair any damaged areas of the stomach, reduces inflammation, and boosts the amount of gastric acid produced in the stomach. As a nutritional duo, a CBD oil & gelatin combo can do wonders for your gut!

And who would have thought that cardamom, despite being a spice, helps in relieving acidity and treating gastrointestinal issues?

Well, it's all true dear friends. Are you ready to prepare these special gut-healing gummies? We are:)

The recipe

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups of lemon juice
2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
3/4 cup of Amandean's Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin
1/2 cup of Stevia or all-natural sweetener of your choice
1/4 teaspoon cardamom

To determine your dose of CBD oil, you should calculate based on the oil's concentration, your weight, and the severity of your condition. We always recommend that you consult your medical doctor or dietitian if you have any uncertainties.

Preparation

  1. Add lemon juice and blueberries to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth, then pour the liquid into a sauce pan and bring to a low boil over medium heat.
  3. Gradually pour in the Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin. Keep whisking until fully dissolved.
  4. Add your chosen sweetener and the CBD oil and stir until fully combined.
  5. Pour the entire mixture into a silicon mold of your choice.
  6. Store in the refrigerator for 45-60 minutes or until gummies are firm.  You can also put them in the freezer to speed up the process.
