Pumpkin seems to be a polarizing topic. Take the pumpkin spice latte: You either think it’s the elixir of the gods and you count down to its return to coffee shops every fall, or you think it’s hot gourd-flavored sewer water with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
There is no middle ground.
Pumpkin pie tends to be the same deal. Either it’s the sweet finale to Thanksgiving meal or it’s singing backup to the turkey.
But if you’re on Team Pumpkin, this is your time and we’ve created this roundup with you in mind. Read on for three pumpkin recipes you can make with cannabis-infused or normal oil or butter, to get your fix of the seasonal favorite.
1. CBD-Infused Pumpkin Spice Cookies
If you’re someone who loves a hearty, not-too-sweet treat, you’ll love these cookies sweetened with maple syrup. They’re packed with good-for-you ingredients, too, like rolled oats, coconut oil and pure pumpkin. The infusion comes from 15 mL of cannabis tincture stirred in with the wet ingredients.
2. Vegan Cannabis-Infused Pumpkin Seed Pesto
Okay, this might be cheating because it’s not exactly pumpkin-flavored, but we love the substitution of roasted pumpkin seeds for the Parmesan cheese. The nutty flavor pairs so well with the herbs in this recipe and works beautifully to integrate the cannabis flavor that comes from the infused olive oil.
3. Cannabis-Infused Pumpkin Muffins
These muffins are loaded with warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and they can be customized with add-ins like fruit, nuts and chocolate chips. This recipe calls for cannabutter or infused cooking oil, which you can either purchase or make at home.
