Here are the things you will need to bake your very own space cake:
Space cake, whichever recipe you make it with, is a cake with cannabis extracts. It’s a great way to get high, but it’s very important to note that you should allow a couple of hours for the high to arrive. Don’t keep eating more and more until you feel high, that’s the way to consume way more than necessary and make yourself ill. Take a slice of space cake and then wait a couple of hours for the effects to begin.
Oven tin for your cake
• 5-10 grams of cannabis buds.You can use the equivalent in trimmings, oil/hash etc.
• 2 teaspoons of baking powder
The oil, butter or fat will readily extract the active ingredients (known as cannabinoids) allowing them to be easily absorbed by the human digestive system. Decarboxylation is where the cannabinoids undergo a slight chemical change when heated, this makes them bio-available. When you vape or smoke cannabis, the heat naturally decarboxylates the cannabinoids before they reach your lungs.
With these so called “1:1 varieties” the levels of THC and CBD are broadly similar. The THC and CBD levels are often both around 5-12%. In a THC rich cannabis variety the THC can reach as high as 25-30% in extreme cases. That could be several times more THC than you would get from a low THC 1:1 variety.
Auto Lemon Zkittle is a THC rich variety which has quickly become one of Dutch Passion’s best selling autoflower seeds. These autoflower seeds are easy to grow indoors or outdoors. Indoor growers find a 20/4 light cycle (20 hours of indoor daily light from seed to harvest) produces excellent results. Auto Lemon Zkittle usually takes around 11 weeks to grow from seed to harvest indoors. Occasional phenotypes will take an extra week or two, but will reward the patient grower with an extra heavy harvest.
Growing your own cannabis from feminised seeds or autoflower seeds is the most affordable way to get top quality buds and trim to use for your space cake. You can experiment making your own space cake and gradually establish the right quantity of buds/trim required to give you a blissfully enjoyable space cake experience.
