Despite the legalization or ongoing legalization of marijuana consumption in certain countries, accessing marijuana THC edibles remains challenging. However, it is still possible to create homemade THC edibles using the appropriate ingredients. Making marijuana edibles can be a straightforward and enjoyable process, although it may be more challenging for first-time users. Having a comprehensive guide for first-time adventurers can be highly beneficial. One recommended edible for beginners to try making at home is marijuana cake. This article will provide instructions on making a marijuana cake and outline the necessary ingredients. Before diving into the process, it is important to choose the right strain as the initial step towards a delightful experience.
THC Edibles, such as cannabis-infused foods and drinks, are extremely popular among cannabis enthusiasts. They offer an alternative for patients who prefer not to inhale smoke, require discretion, or seek a more potent high. To ensure the desired effect, we provide an edible dosage calculator to infuse food with the appropriate amounts of THC and CBD.
In contrast to inhaled or sublingual methods, which deliver cannabinoids directly into the bloodstream, traditional edibles require digestion, intestinal absorption, and liver metabolism before taking effect.
The unique nature of the high experienced from edibles can be attributed to the transformation of THC in the liver. After reaching the liver, THC converts into 11-Hydroxy-THC, which is more potent and has stronger psychoactive effects compared to traditional THC.
To begin making homemade THC edibles, you’ll need cannabis flower, which is the traditional method and offers a wide range of strain options. However, if you prefer a simpler approach, you can use homemade or store-bought cannabis tincture and add it to your recipe.
When selecting a strain for your edibles, it’s best to choose one that you are familiar with and has worked well for you in other consumption methods. Consider the specific benefits you seek from your THC edibles, such as pain relief, relaxation, increased energy, or other desired effects. You can search for strains based on the effect you desire, such as weight loss, anxiety/stress relief, migraine relief, chronic pain relief, energy/productivity, or nausea relief.
While Indica strains are commonly associated with sedation and Sativas with uplifting effects, it’s important to note that these classifications are becoming outdated. Instead, focus on cannabinoid ratios (THC:CBD) and terpene profiles to achieve the desired effect. For example, a strain with high CBD and linalool or myrcene terpenes will have calming properties, while a strain with high THC and limonene terpenes will offer a more euphoric experience.
To make a marijuana cake, you will need the following ingredients:
8 grams of decarbed weed (buds)
1 ¾ cups of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of chocolate pieces
½ teaspoon of salt
½ can of chocolate icing
½ cup of freeze-dried fruits
¼ cup of white sugar
¾ teaspoon of baking soda
¾ cup of brown sugar
You will also need the following equipment:
Mixer (manual or electric)
Here are the instructions:
Begin by decarbing the weed as mentioned previously.
Melt the chocolate chips and mix them in a mixing bowl with the egg and sugar. Use a mixer (manual or electric) to combine the ingredients until soft and fluffy. Add the salt and flour, mixing thoroughly until the batter becomes smooth.
Add the decarbed weed and freeze-dried fruits to the mixture. Optionally, you can also add cannabutter if desired. Blend the ingredients together using a mixing spatula or mixer.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly on it. Place it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, check the cake’s readiness by inserting a knife. If it comes out clean, the marijuana cake is ready. If not, bake for an additional 5 minutes, keeping a close eye to avoid burning the top.
Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes, then decorate it with chocolate icing.
