Sensible Sensimilla: There’s Always Room for Jello — With a Shot of CBD

Sensible Sensimilla is a weekly column highlighting the most practicable ways to live a carefree, stylish stoner lifestyle. Part how-to manual, part way of life; fully sensible.

Just because summer is halfway over, it doesn’t mean you have to stop your sun-filled celebrations. Whether you’re having a party of inviting your best buds over, spice up the last days of summer with a few Purple People Eater and Sweet Strawberry Daiquiri CBD-infused jello shots.

Unlike the traditional gelatin shot, our jello shots are infused with CBD — a non-intoxicating cannabinoid proven to decrease anxiety, inflammation, and seizures — rather than alcohol. We decided to use Flav CBD Tincture, 100 mg, in the pure flavor.

The Purple People Eater Jello Shot

This shot combines grape tastes with the refreshing flavor of watermelon. Purple People Eater shots supply the ideal summer tastes, while its dark complexion makes it versatile for Halloween or other occasions. To begin, you will need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (237 milliliters) of water
  • 1 box (3 oz., or 85 grams)  grape gelatin
  • 1/3 cup (79 mL) carrot juice
  • Flav CBD tincture

Materials:

Instructions:

  1. Boil the water, then pour 1 cup (237 mL) of the boiling water into a large measuring cup.
  2. Pour from the grape gelatin  mixture and whisk until the powder melts.
  3. Mix in ⅓ cup (79 mL) of watermelon juice, followed by 8-10 drops of Flav CBD tincture.
  4. Pour the mixture into 1 plastic cups then seal and refrigerate for up to 3 hours or until the jello is strong.

Serves 20.

Gut the strawberry to use the fruit as the cup. This feature adds an air of elegance and decadence to your summer snack with fruit-enhanced tastes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (237 mL) water
  • 1 box (3 oz., or 85 grams) strawberry gelatin
  • ¼ cup (59 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Flav CBD tincture
  • 1-2 pounds (454-907 g) strawberries
  • Granulated sugar to the rim (optional)
  • Limes for garnish (optional)

Materials:

  • Dropper, separate from the CBD bottle
  • Knife

Instructions:

  1. Boil the  water.
  2. While the water is boiling, prepare your strawberries by washing, cutting the tops and bottoms, then removing the cores. Only cut enough of the bottom so the strawberry stands by itself, but not enough to make an opening.
  3. Place the strawberries on a baking sheet.
  4. Once the water is boiled, stir in the strawberry gelatin mix until it melts.
  5. Line up the strawberries and use a dropper to fill the fruit with the gelatin mix.
  6. Refrigerate for two to three hours.

Note: if you would like to fancy it up a little more, add garnish to the rim with some granulated sugar and lime.
