Benefits of using marijuana in food

In addition, by ingesting marijuana in the form of food, inhalation of combustion products is avoided, which can be beneficial for lung health.
- 1 cup marijuana butter (see instructions below)
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Chocolate powder
- Dried fruit
Preparation of marijuana butter
How to choose the right marijuana
The quality and quantity of cannabis you use to make your butter will have a significant impact on the flavour and potency of your cake. Choose a strain that you like and that has a flavour profile that complements the other ingredients in your cake.
Decarboxylation of marijuana
Decarboxylation is the process that activates the cannabinoids in marijuana, such as THC and CBD. To decarboxylate marijuana, preheat the oven to 115°C (240°F). Place the shredded marijuana on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking.
Once decarboxylated, the marijuana must be infused in butter in order to be used in the cake recipe. Melt one cup of butter in a saucepan over low heat and add the decarboxylated marijuana. Simmer for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Then strain the mixture through a fine strainer or clean tea towel to separate the butter from the marijuana particles. Allow the marijuana butter to cool before using it in the recipe.
Preparation of the cake
Preparation of the cake mixture
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the milk and vanilla, and mix until smooth.
Incorporation of marijuana butter
Add the marijuana butter to the cake mixture, making sure it is well distributed throughout the batter. If you want to add optional ingredients such as chocolate powder, dried fruit or nuts, now is the time to do so.
Baking the cake
Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F). Grease a cake tin and pour the mixture into it. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before unmoulding and allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Frequently asked questions
Can I use coconut oil instead of butter to infuse marijuana?
Yes, you can use coconut oil instead of butter to infuse marijuana. The process is very similar: heat the coconut oil over low heat and add the decarboxylated marijuana. Simmer for at least 2 hours and then strain the mixture to separate the oil from the marijuana particles.
How long do the effects of marijuana cake last?
The effects of marijuana cake can last between 4 and 8 hours, depending on the amount consumed and the individual tolerance of each person. Remember that it takes 1-2 hours for the effects to kick in, so it is important not to consume any more cake before at least 1-2 hours have passed since the first serving.
Is it legal to make a marijuana cake?
The legality of making and consuming a marijuana cake depends on the marijuana laws in your country or state. In some places, it is legal for recreational and/or medicinal use, while in others, marijuana is still illegal. Be sure to find out about local laws before attempting to make a pot pie.
Can I make a marijuana cake without decarboxylating the marijuana first?
Decarboxylating marijuana is an important step in the preparation of the cake, as it activates the cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. If you do not decarboxylate the cannabis before making the marijuana butter or oil, the cake will have a much weaker or even no effect.
Can I use this recipe to make other desserts with cannabis?
Yes, this recipe can easily be adapted to make other desserts with marijuana. The key is to replace the regular butter or oil in the recipe with marijuana butter or marijuana oil. Be sure to adjust the amounts according to the desired potency and always keep dosing considerations in mind.
