Gummies make everything more colorful. The squishy droplets make a tasty and practical carrier of special ingredients such as CBD oil. Chewing the gum increases the bioavailability of the substance as opposed to vaping. But before the cannabidiol can take effect, it must first be processed through a line of CBD gummy equipment.

Advanced CBD gummies equipment eliminates the need for starch

The earliest gummy candy manufacturing processes lined the mold trays with starch to prevent the gelatinous mix from sticking. But applying and removing starch slows production. New automated processing technologies bypass this technique by using non-stick GMP materials.

Starch-free depositing trays present other opportunities too. Molds have an improved definition with smoother, refined edges. Starch-lined pans are often limited to flat and two-dimensional molds. But non-stick technology allows you to manufacture your gummies in true 3D. Advances in gummy production technology mean that a consistent and high quality end-product is produced. PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) help with production capacity in terms of input and output no matter what recipe you decide to go with.

Replace gelatin with pectin to improve the setting time

The chewy texture of gummies is all thanks to gelatin. The animal-derived substance forms into a flexible matrix that holds together the other ingredients in the mix.

However, one drawback of gelatin is that it may take up to four hours to set. A naturally occurring fiber found predominantly in fruits, Pectin is a suitable replacement. Although it does not achieve the same bouncy consistency as gelatin, it takes minutes to set.

Extract CBD oil from hemp using cryogenic ethanol

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the chemicals developed by the cannabis Sativa plant. THC, which acts as a stimulant or hallucinogen when consumed, is another chemical in this mix. But CBD is extracted from the hemp flower, which has a low THC concentration of 0.3% or less.

CBD oil is obtained from industrial hemp using solvent extraction. The plant material is immersed in a solvent such as cryogenic ethanol and brought to a temperature of about -40°C. The ethanol breaks down the tissue, releasing the compounds. Isolate the CBD oils from unwanted residues using a separation technique like chromatography. Humidity is something important to keep in mind throughout the whole process.

Tailor your CBD product to the country-specific legal framework

The United States and Europe are the two largest markets for CBD products. The US federal authorities (2018 Farm Bill) allow the use of ingredients derived from hemp. Nevertheless, CBD products are not expressly legal. States within the country have taken it upon themselves to regulate the sale of CBD gummies.

On the other side of the Atlantic, European law does not consider CBD a narcotic drug, but marketing CBD derivatives is a national competence. Not all EU member states allow sales of CBD products, while the rest have varying tolerance for THC levels.
