Choose Your Cannabis Infusion Option
Just like all things cannabis, there are many different ways to infuse something.
Here we will cover how to make these cannabis deviled eggs with:
- Decarbed Cannabis Flower
- Decarbed Kief
- Leftover Cannabis Pulp
- Cannabis Concentrates
Decarbed Cannabis Flower
Before incorporating cannabis as an ingredient in any recipe, it’s important to understand the process of decarboxylation, or decarbing.
This process must occur before creating the recipe for you to experience the benefits of activated THC or CBD.
However, raw cannabis plants do not naturally contain large amounts of active THC or CBD, the two most popular cannabinoids.
To experience the benefits of activated THC or CBD, the cannabis must first undergo a process called decarboxylation.
Without decarboxylation, you will not experience the full range of activated cannabinoids such as THC or CBD.
Decarboxylation occurs when cannabis is exposed to heat, light, cofactors, or solvents.
In your own kitchen you will use an oven to provide the heat needed to decarb the cannabis.
If you've never gone through the process before, have no fear, decarbing really is simple.
Bake the dried cannabis in the oven at 240° F for 40 minutes for a THC-dominant flower and 240° F for 90 minutes for a CBD-dominant flower.
If you have never decarbed before, you can get started with my beginners guide to cannabis decarboxylation here.
Because each person has a different endocannabinoid system and responds to cannabis differently, it is important to add an appropriate amount for your personal tolerance.
This recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of ground, decarbed cannabis flower, but you can adjust this as needed to suit your needs.
Kief typically contains the highest concentration of resinous glands, or trichomes, that contain the cannabinoids like CBD, THC, CBG, etc.
This means that kief can be much more potent than flower or trim.
Because of this, you may be able to use less of it in this recipe, or more, depending on the effect you’re looking for.
Remember that you still need to decarb the kief just as you would traditional flower to enjoy the activated benefits of CBD, THC, CBG, etc.
If you've never worked with kief before, you can get my full guide to decarbing and making edibles with kief here.
Leftover Cannabis Pulp
Many people tend to throw out these cooked leaves after extraction, but I recommend saving them, especially for a full-spectrum experience.
The leftover leaves are not that potent after the infusion process has taken place, but they contain beneficial nutrients and even a few remaining cannabinoids.
Plus, the terpenes in the cannabis pair well with the terpenes found in the other herbs and spices used in this recipe.
As long as you like the taste and enjoy it, it’s great to reuse and recycle cannabis plant byproducts wherever possible.
If you haven't already, I do recommend grinding down the leftover pulp to a more fine consistency so it blends into this recipe nicely.
How Much Pulp To Use?
If you’re brand new to cannabis edibles, it’s important to note that it can be difficult to estimate your final product potency.
It is even more difficult to estimate the potency of leftover pulp because most of the cannabinoids will have already been extracted during the cooking process.
Ultimately, the potency of your leftover weed material will depend on two things, the potency of your starting material (i.e., buds, flowers, or trim, regular vs. CBD flower) and the cooking process you have already used.
I recommend adding just 2 teaspoons of leftover flower pulp in addition to the other ingredients of this recipe and going from there.
This will give you time to experiment with the potency and the taste, too, as the spent cannabis flower can have a powerful taste for some individuals.
One of the easiest ways to make infused foods is with cannabis concentrates.
These are the most convenient, easy-to-use, pre-prepared concentrated products for cannabis infusions.
Because they are concentrated, you only need to add a tiny bit to each recipe to get the experience you are looking for.
Because you only need to add a tiny bit, cannabis concentrates will not disrupt your food's volume, texture, or flavor.
For this reason, cannabis concentrates are the perfect way to infuse these cannabis deviled eggs.
While THC-dominant cannabis concentrates must be purchased at a recreational or medical dispensary in a legal state, CBD-dominant cannabis concentrates can be purchased from my shop here.
Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO)
Full-extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO, is a concentrated, whole-plant, full-spectrum cannabis extract.
This means that all of the important plant compounds, from cannabinoids to terpenes and other plant materials, are present in the extract.
FECO is a powerful concentrated cannabis extract that interacts with our own endocannabinoid system.
Because of its potency, a few drops may be all you need for a perfectly infused deviled eggs .
Simply stir in your FECO after preparing the avocado-yolk filling.
If you are interested in making your own FECO, check out my post detailing how to make full-extract cannabis oil here.
How to Determine The Dosing For Your Recipe
While a calculator is no replacement for lab testing, this tool has been designed to help you get a more accurate guesstimate of the potency of your cannabis infusions and extractions.
Unlike other calculators available online, this calculator aims to provide more accuracy by accounting for the losses associated with decarboxylation, infusion oils, or extraction solvents used.
Use An Infusion Machine For Your Edibles
Cannabis-infusion machines are countertop devices that do all the work for you by decarboxylating and infusing your butters, oils, and more.
