The Basics of Marijuana Cake
What is Marijuana Cake?
Benefits of Marijuana Cake
Why bake a marijuana cake? For starters, it’s a delightful way to consume cannabis, especially for those who prefer not to smoke. It offers a controlled dosage, long-lasting effects, and, let’s face it, it’s a cake – who doesn’t love cake?
Choosing Your Cannabis Strain
Strain Selection for Desired Effects
Your choice of strain is crucial. Looking for relaxation? An Indica might be your go-to. For a more energizing effect, Sativa is a great choice. And remember, hybrids can offer the best of both worlds.
Determining the potency of your cake is key, especially if you’re aiming for a low-dose recipe. You’ll want to consider the THC content of your strain and how much you’re using in your recipe.
