Weed cakes also known as THC-infused cakes or marijuana cakes are a type of cannabis edible. Edibles such as weed cakes provide long-lasting effects compared to smoking.
Weed cake can be made at home by infusing THC into butter or oil and then using your homemade cannabutter in place of regular butter or oil. Alternatively, THC-infused cake mixes are available for purchase in some dispensaries.
To start mixing up delicious inspiration here are seven of the best cakes to make with cannabutter:
Weed cake is simply a cake that uses THC-infused butter or oil instead of regular butter or oil. The THC-infused butter or oil can be made at home using a saucepan, crockpot, or double boiler. You can use an edible dosage calculator to help determine the strength of the edible. If you prefer pre-determined dosages, THC-infused butter, and oil can also be purchased at a dispensary.
Once you have THC-infused butter or oil, it can be used in any recipe that calls for regular butter or oil. For example, you could add it to your favorite brownie mix, cookie dough, or cake batter. Just be sure the cannabis has been decarboxylated (or you won’t get the effects you’re looking for)!
Decarboxylation is the process of converting tetrahydrocannabinolic (THC-A) into THC, and it is essential for getting the full psychoactive effect of THC. You can decarboxylate your weed by baking it in the oven at 245 degrees Fahrenheit for about 40 minutes. Once your weed is decarboxylated, simply infuse your butter or oil with cannabis and you're good to go!
The short answer is yes. You can add decarbed weed to brownie mix or any other batter or recipe that calls for butter or oil, but it's important to keep a few things in mind.
First, the THC needs to be infused into fat (butter, oil, etc.) before adding it to the brownie mix. Otherwise, the THC will not be activated and you will not get high from eating the brownies.
Second, you'll want to start with a small amount of weed and work your way up until you find the perfect dosage for you. Remember, edibles can take up to two hours to kick in, so it's important to not overload your baked goods or you could end up overdosing on weed!
Space cake is just another term for cannabis cake, so a space cake is just a type of cannabis edible made with cake batter. The THC-infused cake is then eaten like any other cake.

Homemade THC-infused oil will have a shelf life of two months. You can make a larger batch by doubling or tripling the recipe and have it on hand to infuse cakes and other foods.
If you do not have THC-infused oil on hand you may want to do this step the day before you make your cake.
