Making space cake contains of two parts: making the base of cannabis butter and the actual steps to make the cake itself. You always need a base when making edibles, which is usually done by making either cannabis butter or cannabis oil. Doing this part correctly first is the most essential for making edibles, as in this process the psychoactive compounds of cannabis are ‘’activated’’.

How to use edibles carefully?

Edibles are a popular and also discreet way of using cannabis. It is also a different kind of experience comparing to smoking or vaping. However we recommend to be careful of your consumption, as edibles can hit different.

First and foremost, start with a low dose. Edibles affect everyone differently, and the onset of effects can be delayed. Often it takes about 1-2 hours before you start feeling any effects, therefore make sure not to eat a lot in case you don’t feel anything yet. Beginners should start with 2.5 to 5 milligrams of THC and wait at least 2 hours before consuming more. This patience helps avoid overconsumption, which can lead to an uncomfortable experience.

When smoking or vaping weed you will feel its effects immediately, which makes it a bit easier to dose. As edibles need to pass your digestive system and liver, it leads to a delayed and sometimes stronger effect. Calculate how much THC the cannabis oil or butter contains, how much you use for your recipe and how many portions this yields. Make upfront the decision on how much of the spacecake you made you can eat.

Another tip of us is to choose your environment carefully, you want to have the most optimal and comfortable experience possible. This doesn’t only come down to edibles specifically, but when getting high in general.

We are a big pro of combining weed and a productive lifestyle, but in general we feel like it is harder to stay productive when consuming edibles compared to smoking weed due to the delay of the effects, the potency and overall harder to dose. Therefore we advise to make sure you don’t have any other plans the rest of the day when eating edibles.

By starting low, going slow, and staying informed, you can enjoy the benefits of cannabis edibles safely and responsibly.

Last but not least, make sure not to eat more of you edibles when you get the munchies. We know how tempting your delicious made dish can be when the cravings kick in, but this can be a major mistake. Therefore make sure to have some of your favorite snacks around to enjoy when you are high.
