Space Cake – An Amazing Edible Experience You Should Try
Weed is an incredible recreational and medicinal substance for a lot of reasons, and one is certainly the versatility of ways in which it can be consumed.
Able to be smoked, vaped, made into a tea to drink, or baked into various edibles to be consumed, there is no shortage of new and exciting ways to get that high and indulge in the relaxing feel of marijuana.
Today, the one will be exploring is space cakes!
Although it is an incredible experience, many die-hard weed smokers have never heard of space cakes, much less experienced the feeling of goodness they can provide.
To begin, let’s first explore what a space cake is for those who have never heard of them and have found themselves wondering “what is a space cake?”
What is Space Cake?
A space cake is a type of marijuana edible in which THC is absorbed by a fat and made into cake. Much like a normal edible, space cake is made in a similar fashion using weed butter, oil, or another form of fat.
From there, the weed is then caked in the form of a cake be it a regular cake or a cupcake – and consumed to produce a high.
In simple terms, a space cake is just like a normal cake you might consume, whether in the form of a cupcake or standard cake.
The twist with space cake, however, is just that it’s been made with a fat that has absorbed THC from weed, giving it the capabilities of making the consumer high.
In fact, weed fans love space cake so much that they’ve even created space cake lipstick!
Eating Space Cake: What to Expect
If you’ve never eaten space cake marijuana edibles before, then you may be at a loss as for what to expect when you eat a space cake for the very first time.
After all, while the experience is much like getting high, it is not exactly the same and there are some variations in the experience you may want to be prepared for beforehand if you don’t like being caught off guard.
The high you get from space cake is much like a normal high that you would get from smoking weed, but there are some key differences.
For one thing, the high won’t begin to kick in until you have digested your space cake, which may take between one to two hours, depending on how fast your metabolism is.
Once the weed has kicked in, you will begin to feel a blissful high. The feeling you’ll get from space cakes will be a much more intense body high rather compared to smoking the stuff.
With traditional smoking methods utilizing a bowl, bong, or other means, you will experience more of a mental high than a body high, while you will experience exactly the opposite through consumption methods.
You can expect to enjoy the feeling of your edible high for several hours, as the effects are long-lasting.
It might be as many as 4-6 hours before the sensation has completely subsided, making edibles an option that many people love if they are looking to stay high for long periods of time.
However, it can severely disrupt your daily activities if you are extremely high for such a long period, so if you’re looking for a more controllable, shorter high, then you might just want to stick to traditional smoking methods.
The Benefits of Space Cake Over Smoking
While smoking is one of the most common ways to achieve a high using marijuana, many prefer to use edibles instead for many reasons.
For one thing, smoking obviously results in inhaling smoke into your lungs, which can be bad for your lungs if done too often over long periods of time.
Not only that, but many people don’t think smoking is the best method of getting high for them, as it can hurt their lungs or result in chest pains.
For these health reasons, and because it is less painful for many people who have not yet acclimated to the feeling of inhaling smoke into their lungs, edibles are often seen as a preferable alternative to methods of consuming weed that require smoking.
Eating edibles like space cakes is a much more gentle way to achieve that high, so as long as you are okay with getting a much stronger body high than mental high as edibles typically produce, then edibles just might be the more health-conscious method of smoking weed that you have been looking for!
The Dark Side of Space Cakes
Not everything about space cakes is superior to what you might find from traditional smoking methods, however.
They do have a bit of a dark side – almost literally – residing in the fact that you are pretty much stumbling into your high blindly.
As it takes between one to two hours to get high, and you never know how potent the edibles are or how they are going to affect you before they eventually hit you hard and all at once, the results of this can be undesirable.
Using space cakes and other edibles, it is all too easy to get too high to the point where it is uncomfortable at best and terrifying at worst.
While it’s certainly possible to achieve a pleasant and desirable high if you go too far and consume too much grams of marijuana, you’ve essentially crossed the line, and there’s nothing you can do but wait for the effects to abate – which, as we’ve discussed earlier, can take several hours.
In short, space cakes are much more difficult to predict or control. You never know when they will end up kicking in, how hard they will hit you, or how long they will last.
Marijuana veterans are normally fairly well equipped to deal with the sensation; however, for those who are more sensitive, it’s good to start with smaller doses and learn how your body reacts to space cakes and other edibles before you work your way up.
