A police investigation revealed that the restaurant employee responsible for the cakes had asked her 18-year-old daughter to bake them, but the mother accidentally took the wrong cake from the freezer to the funeral.
She took a hash cake that the teenager had made for another occasion.
Police said the 18-year-old is under investigation.
The incident happened in August but was not previously published out of respect for the grieving.
This is not the first time an unsuspecting group of people has received cannabis by accident this year.
In August, a prankster triggered a bio-hazard warning at a metal detection convention after the treasure hunters had received chocolate cake full of cannabis.
This is not the first time this year that an unsuspecting event has been caused by cannabis dosing. A group of metal detector enthusiasts were drugged in August when a 50-year-old man handed out his birthday cake, not knowing it was peppered with cannabis
Eighteen people burst into the song, started dancing or collapsed on the tent floor after a man handed out slices of his 50th birthday treat, not knowing it was peppered with drugs.
Police said at least 15 metal detection enthusiasts fell ill during the event in the village of High Melton, near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, and 13 of them had to be taken to the hospital.
NHS bosses have deployed a Hazardous Area Response team that is trained to respond to serious threats to public health, including terrorism.
