HOW DO YOU MAKE AND USE SPACECAKE?
Every cannabis user and many non-users have heard of the famous Spacecake. Many coffee shops sell them in the form of cakes or muffins and even cookies. First of all, what is Spacecake? Spacecake is a so-called cannabis "edible". Spacecake is the name for a cake that makes you space due the cannabis THC. Usually, when preparing Spacecake, weed or hash is melted in the butter and dissolved, resulting in cannabis butter. This cannabis butter is the basis for making the most cannabis edibles. You can make cannabis butter to use for your Spacecake from cannabis buds, sugar leaves, grit, twigs and Hash or a combination of all. Keep in mind that not only the quantity, but also the quality of the plant material used determines how strong your Spacecake will become. The effects of eating Spacecake are much more intense and stronger then smoking THC. This because you do not smoke the cannabis, but eat it and therefore consume it through the stomach. As a result, it can take a while, about 45 minutes to an hour and a half before the effects become noticeable and tangible depending on the user.
A so-called ''trip'' or ''space'' of Spacecake often lasts 3 to 6 hours, but this can certainly be a little shorter or longer depending on the person, the amount of the dose taken and the strength of the weed. We recommend that you do not consume spacecake alone the first time and certainly not in a depressed or emotional mood. As mentioned earlier, the effects of Spacecake are much more intense than smoking cannabis. It is advisable not to take too much right away, but to wait a while first of your portion and its effect. You can always take more later. It is also always wise to have a sober person who does not consume Spacecake or other means. Using Spacecake is generally quite safe, as cannabis is a natural product. That said, THC edibles naturally remain soft drugs, so you should always make sure you handle them that way and with common sense. There also THC free cannabis edibles or with CBD!
The effects of a THC Spacecake become most intense when you consume it on an empty stomach. It is therefore often recommended not to take them on a full stomach. However, it is smart that you have eaten a meal earlier that same day or just a few hours before. You can also take Spacecake on a full stomach, but the effects are often less intense and sometimes a little shorter. By the way, you can always eat other stuff after consuming your Spacecake or during your trip if you are still hungry. Just don't confuse those "regular" cakes with the Spacecakes. If there comes a time when it gets too much for you and you want to lessen the effects, find a quiet place and eat or drink something sweet with sugar. Vitamin C has also a good effect. Always stay calm and know that the effects of Spacecake will always diminish and eventually pass. When using Spacecake there is no permanent damage and the effects always completely wear off over time.

We will now explain in steps the baking process for the perfect stoney THC Spacecake!
First preheat your oven for a temperature of between 104 ° C and 113 ° C. Then put your ground weed in an oven or heat-resistant dish. Your weed needs to be decarboxylated as it is called. In fact, this is nothing more than activating your cannabinoids so that it can be absorbed by our body. When smoking cannabis, this already happens by burning it when eating, so we do this by first decarboxylating the weed ourselves.
This is done as follows: Put the (ground) cannabis in for 30–40 minutes the oven as previously mentioned between 104 ° C and 113 ° C. Take your cannabis out after 30-40 minutes and preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
Put all your butter in a bowl and heat it in the microwave for about 20 seconds so that it becomes soft and spreadable. Stir the freshly ground and decarboxylated cannabis into the butter. Then add the sugar, flour, milk, cannabis butter, eggs and your other ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stir well until you have an even batter. Note that this can take a while, but this is important because this will distribute the cannabis as evenly as possible through the dough. If the batter is too dry add a little extra milk, vice versa if it is too wet, add a little flour.
Now grease the cake tin / baking tin with (cream) butter or non-stick cooking spray or ou can also use baking paper. Then carefully pour the batter into the cake tin and spread it evenly. Place your cake tin in the oven and let the Spacecake bake for 25 minutes.
After about 25 minutes you can check if the Cake is already done. If the skewer comes out clean, the cake is completely ready. However, if batter still sticks to it, you can leave the cake in the oven for a maximum of 5 minutes. When ready, let the cake cool in the tin for about 20 minutes. Then place the cake upside down (on the rack) and remove the cake tin. Now let the cake cool down for another 30 minutes. When the cake has cooled down you can start decorating it.
So now you know exactly what a Spacecake is and how to make it for you and your friends, family or acquaintances. Surprise all your friends with your newly acquired baking skills! Have fun baking a THC Spacecake and even more after eating it. Bon Appétit!
