The spread of CBD

Since we talked about Cannabis light, various prejudices about the world of Marijuana have been cleared . First of all the therapeutic use. The turning point occurred in recent years, with the decision (for the first time in history) of the World Health Organization (WHO) to review cannabis prohibition at an international level.

WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) has removed Cannabidiol (CBD) from among the doping substances.

Scholars, scientists and specialists have multiplied publications and studies on the beneficial power of Cannabis . In short, a small green revolution is sweeping the entire planet.

The uses of Cannabis are as old as time. In the collective imagination, however, Marijuana is smoked . Although there are many uses allowed by this plant. In fact, not everyone knows that Cannabis can also be eaten .

Among the most common foods with marijuana around the world, it is worth mentioning Indian Bhang (a paste used to make tea ), hemp oil (useful for condiments) and the very famous Space cake (space cake ). A dessert invented in Amsterdam and served in all the best coffee shops in the Dutch city. The idea of ​​marijuana cake spread quickly, from the banks of the Amstel to all over the world. And with it myriads of different versions to cook an excellent Space Cake ad hoc.

And not just cakes, have you ever tried marijuana muffins ?

Today we want to recommend a recipe, which we propose below: The Opulent Space Cake . A cake, revisited and corrected with cannabis light . Made with our premium quality inflorescences: Opulent Reserve . For flavor we like to use chestnuts, because we have plenty of them in our areas. And for the unique taste, in combination with Cannabis . But you can replicate the recipe with any other ingredient.

CBD is a versatile and precious substance, rich in beneficial properties : it has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, neuroprotective, anticonvulsant and anxiolytic effects and is used in the treatment of many diseases.

To create a unique dessert, with a good flavor and a good perceived final sensation. The opportunity to spend a good evening in tranquility and based on Cannabis. In the company of your friends. And relaxing thanks to Cannabidiol (CBD).

What is CBD?

CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a substance contained in the cannabis plant, and belongs to the class of cannabinoids . Cannabis contains two active ingredients (among the most important): THC, which is responsible for its psychoactive effect. And CBD, which has the ability to amplify and regulate the effects of THC. And also other cannabinoids. CBD is a versatile and precious substance, rich in beneficial properties : it has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, neuroprotective, anticonvulsant and anxiolytic effects and is used in the treatment of many diseases.

Cannabis cultivation

CBD is experiencing widespread popularity thanks to its qualities: it is the active ingredient contained in the greatest quantity in legal hemp . It is nothing more than Marijuana without THC. Light marijuana contains the same active ingredients as traditional marijuana, but in different and very small percentages (in the case of THC).

Ingredients for the Space Cake (light)

(for 6 people)

6 g of Cannabis sativa “Opulent Reserve”

3 Eggs (possibly “farmer's”)

150 g of chestnut flour

100 g of 00 flour

1 Glass of milk (fresh)

80 g Butter

100 g granulated sugar

100g of cane sugar

10/15 Boiled chestnuts (to taste)

50 g cocoa powder

1 sachet of baking powder

1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil

Salt to taste

First of all, when we want to "eat" Cannabis we must take into consideration a fundamental rule: decarboxylation.

What is decarboxylation?

Cannabis cannot be used in a raw, raw way, in its natural state. You can't take the “herb” out of your jar and stick it in the middle of the butter, so to speak. In short, decarboxylation is a chemical process (temperature addition) that transforms Cannabinoids (Thc, Cbd , Cbg etc.) from their basic and inactive form to their acidic and active form.

The active ingredients, when they are "warmed up", are put in the best condition to "bring out" all the "good" things.

Legal cannabis

To "increase" the CBD of the inflorescences then, we take the chopped Cannabis (break the flowers roughly into parts) and carefully spread it in an aluminum container . Don't overlap the tops too much and leave enough space between each one . Place in the oven at 110° for an hour . Once the pre-established time has passed, the decarboxylation will be completed and your Cannabis flowers will be ready to be cooked.

At this point you can chop the legal hemp inflorescences using a grinder or any tool you have available. In the meantime, take the butter, cut into small cubes and leave to melt at room temperature.

Take a saucepan suitable for the fire, add your melted butter, add the chopped cannabis and cook over a very low heat for 25 minutes. The heat should be as low as possible.

This process serves to "bind" the cannabinoids to a fatty substance , in this case butter. Be careful, do not boil or the active ingredients will be lost! After completing cooking, let it rest until the mixture is completely cold and homogeneous.

Cannabis light


In the meantime, in a separate bowl, beat the eggs together with the brown sugar and the granulated sugar. Once done, combine the cooled butter and cannabis and add the milk and oil . Mix carefully to set the mixture. Then, using a sieve, add the flour (previously combined) in small doses. Just enough time to mix the mixture and mix well without ever changing the direction. I recommend adding the flour little at a time to avoid the formation of lumps.

Add the cocoa powder and boiled chestnuts. The latter must not be reduced into too small pieces (not blended), it is sufficient to break them into three/four parts each. Add a little salt and finally the yeast. Stir the dough vigorously until you obtain a thick cream. Please note that there must not be any lumps .

In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180°. Line a baking tray with baking paper and pour the mixture. Cook for 45 minutes. Leave to rest and fill with plenty of whipped cream (preferably fresh). We recommend this (cream with chestnuts go perfectly) but even with icing sugar you will have "amazing" results .

That's it: your Opulent Space Cake will be ready to be devoured.

In the name of relaxation and with the precious help of Cannabidiol .
