Ever since I became a cannabis convert, I think all the time about the years during and after college where I partied and drank socially every day of every weekend. Memories of way too many shots of Fireball, kickball leagues, a.k.a. drinking leagues where you spend hours upon hours playing flip cup and beer pong at a dive bar after the game, and eating a few too many Jell-O shots come to mind.
I think about these hilarious moments of my youth because I’ve always wondered what it would have been like if our party drinking was replaced by an enthusiastic bong rip or passing a joint around the room. I can tell you one thing – there would have been way fewer hangovers involved, and we probably would have had more meaningful conversation.
Even though I do things differently now than I did back then, I don’t think I’ll ever get over my fondness for Jell-O shots. They just bring so much life to a party for some reason, I can’t really explain it. Lucky for me, I figured out how to make THC JELL-O SHOTS. Yes, I repeat. THC JELL-O SHOTS.
To make this magic happen, I dissolved the THC infused gummies into the boiling water you use to prepare Jell-O. The result is canna-magic, and each serving is just over 6mg – perfect for if you have a low tolerance and want to feel a little funny after just one, or if you are a bit more experienced and would like to increase your dose.
Tis the season for Fall gatherings and these THC Jell-O shots are going to be the star of your party. The recipe below uses orange Jell-O for a spooky vibe, but you can use any flavor of Jell-O and any of your favorite THC infused gummies. You can also choose to make the shots in an orange slice (ooh fancy!) or in a shot glass of choice. Don’t be afraid to top with whipped cream and sprinkles!
Total Servings: 16 shots
THC per serving: ~6.25mg THC/shot
Prep: 5 mins
Refrigerate: 4 hrs
Jell-O shot vessel: oranges or shot glass
1 3-oz package Orange Jell-O
1 package of your favorite gummies
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
If using oranges, slice them in half and scoop out the flesh. Set rinds aside.
Add the gummies to boiling water and stir until dissolved.
Add Jell-O to boiling water mixture and stir until mix has dissolved. Then stir in cold water.
Pour mixture into shot glasses. If using oranges, place the rinds in a baking dish and anchor with popsicle sticks so they are stable and don’t fall over when you start pouring. Pour Jell-O liquid into rind.
Place Jell-O mixture into the fridge and let set for about 4 hours. Optional: top Jell-O shots with whipped cream and sprinkles.
