This cake is made with cannabutter, so in case you do not have cannabutter already made, here is a recipe for it.

The Oven Method to Decarb
You need an oven, baking tray, parchment paper, \’\’and hemp flower such as CB Dawg.
- Oven temperature — 230-260 degrees F.
- Break hemp flower into small pieces.
- Spread on parchment covered baking tray.
- Place in the tray on the middle shelf in oven.
- Bake for 2 hours.
Remove \’\’and cool. It is now sufficiently decarbed!
Using Decarbed CBD Hemp Flower
You can use decarbed CBD hemp flower rather than CBD oil in any of the recipes above. You can replace 25% of the regular flour with decarbed CBD hemp flower.
Hemp flour provides a great deal of fiber boost to whatever recipe you add it too. It also has nutrients \’\’and medicine because it has CBD content. If you use a CBD hemp flower with high CBD content you have a greater advantage. The only downside may be the taste which you can overcome by the right amount of spices or sugar.
To make a ½ cup of hemp flour you need 14 grams of CBD hemp flower. After decarboxylating the CBD hemp flower place the cooled pieces in a food processor to grind it fine. Store in an airtight container in a cool \’\’and dark place until you want to use it. Its shelf life is about three months for best freshness.
