Four Strains That Are Perfect for Your Space Cakes

If you are looking for new flavors that you can place on your space cake, or if you cannot decide on what flavors to choose for your cannabis recipe, below are the four cannabis strains that we recommend (but first, here are some ways on how to identify high-quality cannabis): 

  • Lemon Shining Silver Haze. This lemon-flavored strain has a citrus tinge aftertaste when used as an ingredient for a space cake. After consuming a space cake infused with this strain, an individual will experience an overdrive sensation in the mind. This is best consumed before heading to work since it gives the brain a needed boost to think faster and generate creative ideas. Once consumed, a person will experience euphoric, energetic feelings, and happiness that will make them be upbeat all day long. It has a 15% to 20% THC with a low CBD count.
  • Purple Queen. Another beautiful strain that has citrus flavoring on it. Its strong scent gives off a zesty and fruity feeling once ingested. It also gives off a relaxing and euphoric feeling, thanks to its THC dosage of 22%. This strain is known for being a hybrid strain that is popular among consumers, as it has 75% Indica and 25% Sativa on it. It is best consumed after doing a hard day’s work or if you want to unwind on a relaxing day, whether in the morning or at night.
  • Royal Cookies. The perfect strain for consumers with a sweet tooth since it gives off a fresh scent in plant form and has a sugary taste when used as an ingredient for space cakes. Consuming one will give a relaxing and euphoric stoned high that is perfect for persons who are feeling down or those who could perhaps use a little confidence boost. The effects of this strain may last for several hours. It has 23% THC, which is suitable for veteran cannabis consumers.
  • Solomatic CBD. If you are looking for a strain that has extra therapeutic effects, this is the one. The Solomatic CBD is the total opposite of the first three strains mentioned as it has a low dose of THC at 1% only, while the CBD dosage is at 21%. It results in a certain feeling without the accompanying high of the usual cannabis strains. Ideal for users who want to feel the beneficial effects of CBD purely. Consumers will get a relaxing and definite feeling once this has been ingested as a space cake ingredient. Its flavors, which are a combination of sweet fruit, ginger, and pine, gives a one-of-a-kind kick that will leave a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth after eating.

Have Fun Baking!

We highly recommend trying the above-mentioned strains as you get down making space cakes at the comfort of your own home. Making cannabis space cakes is also a new skill you can learn (baking), plus you have the freedom to choose how your DIY space cake cannabis recipe is going to taste! Aside from the flavored space cakes that we have mentioned in this article, you may also try experimenting with other cannabis recipes or invent ones yourself.

There is no limit to adding flavors and spices to your space cake. Furthermore, you may decide to add more or only a few ingredients at your disposal to customize your DIY space cake recipe. However, whatever you do, we highly advise you to do it in moderation. Infuse THC in your sugary treats wisely and remember that anything is best in moderation so as not to overwhelm yourself. Enjoy the end results of your cannabis recipes in the comfort of your home, or take them to bring a special flair at a friend's party.
