How to Make a Weed Cake

As the name suggests, a space cake will take you on a trip to the moon and back. Popularized by Amsterdam’s weed culture, a space cake is basically any kind of cake infused with cannabis. While there are several different types of space cakes, all of them are cakes with THC in them.

Cakes are the perfect edible to make as it requires a lot of butter (which is needed to infuse cannabis) and it’s fairly simple to make, so read along to learn how to make a weed cake, more about the decarboxylation process, the ingredients, instructions to make the best weed cake and what you need to know before consuming weed cakes.

Decarboxylation process

Well, the first step in making a weed cake or space cake is to decarboxylate the weed. In order to do this, you will need to decarboxylate your weed. The decarboxylation process is needed because cannabis plants actually produce THCA which transforms into THC (the compounds responsible for getting you high) when heated. This means that if you eat weed raw, you would not feel anything.

  4. Spread the ground weed evenly on the baking tray
  5. Place the baking tray in the oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes

Remember that you should not let the temperature go over 120 °C as it could destroy the cannabinoids and terpenes in the weed!

Why baking instead of smoking?

If you’re a regular joint smoker, you must be wondering why take all the trouble to make weed cake, and it’s pretty understandable but there are a couple of things you should know. First of all, edibles can be much stronger than smoking a joint and the effects usually take much longer to wear off. 

Also, joints and edibles offer different experiences. While joints offer a quick effect that can be felt almost immediately, edibles take at least 1-2 hours for you to start feeling the effects and the high is much, much stronger due to the cannabinoids being processed in the stomach and liver. So which one is better? Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. Edibles may not be for everybody but they offer a long-lasting, strong, full-body effect that can make for a great experience every now and then. So try them out and decide for yourself!

Things to know before eating weed cake

If you are a regular weed consumer then you already know that joints and edibles aren’t the same. As mentioned, edibles can take 30 up to 120 minutes to kick in and the high lasts longer than when smoked so it’s highly recommended you eat a piece of weed cake and wait for it to take effect. Do not eat too much at once.
