Before we start to enjoy the tasty goodness of your very own homemade weed cake, it is important to know how to do the decarboxylation process!
For you to enjoy your weed cake and at the same time getting its psychoactive effect, it must go through the decarboxylation process. The process of heating the cannabis flower to activate its THC content. Just like when smoking cannabis, you need heat to produce smoke, and that heat activates THC which in turn gives the users their sought-after psychoactive effect.
For any effects to be truly felt when incorporating your weed onto the weed cake, it must go through the decarboxylation process if you want to enjoy its effect. A decarbed weed-infused with the weed cake will give you potent effects in the process.
We’ll discuss the decarboxylation process down below.

Today’s recipe is chocolate or vanilla, or a little bit of both or something rare. It depends on your taste buds and imagination on how you make the cake.
Before we make the cake, it usually begins by making an infusion of cannabis-butter or margarine. This process may take a while for about 4 hours or so, depending on the heating process. If you are planning to make a cannabis cake, make sure to do the cannabis-infused butter a week prior.

Directions on How to Make Weed Cake
Step 1: Decarboxylate your Cannabis!
Pre-heat the oven around 240 degrees Celsius. Using your digital weighing scale, measure your desired amount of cannabis. After you’ve successfully weighed your desired cannabis. Carefully cut down the cannabis flowers into small bits and then grind it afterward. After that, place them in a parchment paper and spread them evenly. Place them in the oven when the desired temperature is already met, toast it in the oven for about 40 minutes while stirring inside every 10 minutes.
This method will activate the THCA into the active component which gives the psychoactive effects, the THC.
Step 2: Infuse the Butter!
Now, you’ll need to infuse the THC into a fat so that your body absorbs the THC content. In doing so, melt the butter in the saucepan in a low heat setting. When the saucepan is hot, place your decarboxylated cannabis onto the pan and also pour a cup of water then stir. The addition of water to the saucepan will prevent the butter from scorching. Continue to simmer the mixture for around 3 hours, be sure that they are simmered under low heat.
Step 3: Strain and Let it Cool down
When it’s about 3 hours already, let the mixture run through the cheesecloth or a strainer and down to the glass jar or container. After the mixture is set onto the glass jar, close the lid and let it cool. Dispose of the plant matter that is still on the strainer. To keep the cooling fast, place your butter and cannabis mixture into the freezer. As the mixture cools down, the water is noticeable at the bottom while the cannabis-butter mixture stays above it.
When the butter is already firm, use a knife and poke holes through it and slowly pour down the water. The more compact the butter is, the easier baking will be. This will prepare you for the baking process.
Step 4: Prepare for the Actual baking of the Weed Cake!
Pre-heat your oven around 350 degrees Celsius. Carefully grease and flour up the baking pan or place cupcake papers above the baking pan. Your cannabutter in this stage is rock hard. Use a saucepan to melt away the cannabutter before mixing it with other ingredients.
Step 5: Mix all the Ingredients!
Get your large mixing bowl and mix all the ingredients! Blend everything until the mixture is smooth and properly combined. You can also add any artificial flavoring to add more flavors when you eat the weed cake.
Step 6: Bake!
When everything is well-mixed, slowly put the batter onto a baking pan or cupcake pan. If you are making cupcakes, be sure to use measuring cups to have a uniform serving.
Step 7: Check the Weed Cake if it’s already Cooked!
Baking the weed cake under the appropriate temperature, it would only take roughly about 15 to 20 minutes. To be sure, get a toothpick and slowly poke straight down onto the weed cake, if the toothpick comes out clean and tidy, then your cake is good to go! If not, bake for around 3 minutes and do the toothpick method again.
Step 8: Chill out and let it cool down first!
Chill out! Don’t get way too excited munching them. Let the cannabis cakes cool down for about 20 to 30 minutes. Before cutting, allow the cake to completely cool down. The rule of thumb is, as long as you touch the cake without feeling hot or warm, then it is good to go. And your cake is done and that’s how to make weed cake folks!
