Devilled eggs are a delightful way to elevate the classic staple of parties and picnics. The kitschy finger food isn’t just fun to eat, it also proves itself as an ideal delivery vehicle for a cannabis infusion.
This recipe incorporates a home-made cannabis-infused mayonnaise which can be made in advance and then whipped into the sunny yolk filling.
Our recipe is designed to be low dose* (approximately 10 mg THC in each bite-sized serving) though the results will depend on the potency of your infusion and can be adjusted accordingly.
Step by step instructions are provided below but you can also follow along with this video.

*Tips for dosing cannabis infusions
The potency of your infusions depends on many factors, from how long and hot it was cooked to the potency of your starting material. To test the potency of your finished product, try spreading ¼ or ½ teaspoon on a snack and see how that dose affects you after an hour. Decrease or increase dose as desired. You can then use this personalized “standard” dose as a baseline for your recipes. Click here for more information on why potency is so difficult to measure in homemade cannabis edibles.
