Hey there, fellow cannabis enthusiasts! Fall is in full swing, which means it’s time to swap your cold brew for something warm, cozy, and a little bit spicy. You guessed it — we’re talking about the iconic pumpkin spice latte. But hold on to your beanies because we’re giving this classic a twist with a little green magic. That’s right, today we’re brewing up a cannabis pumpkin spice latte.
Before we begin, a quick word of caution: consuming cannabis-infused edibles (or drinkables, in this case) can be potent stuff. It’s important to know your tolerance and always start low and go slow.
Alright, let’s get into it!
Cannabis Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
- 1 cup milk (any kind you like)
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup hot espresso or strong brewed coffee
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Your preferred cannabis product (we’ll chat about this in a sec)
First off, let’s talk cannabis. For this pumpkin spice latte recipe, you’ve got options depending on what’s available to you and your personal preference. You could use a cannabis tincture, cannabis-infused honey, or even cannabutter. If you’re new to this, I’d recommend starting with about 5mg of THC — that’s a pretty chill dose for most folks.
Here’s how you whip up this autumnal delight:
Whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until hot, but don’t boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in your pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and coffee.
Now, here’s where the magic happens. Add your chosen cannabis product. Make sure to stir it really well to ensure it’s thoroughly mixed in.
Pour your latte into a mug, top with a generous swirl of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
Voila! You’ve got yourself a cannabis-infused pumpkin spice latte. It’s like a warm hug in a mug that brings a little extra joy.

The Best Cannabis Strains to Pair with Your PSL
Just like wine and cheese, cannabis and food (or drinks!) can create a symphony of flavors when paired correctly. So, without further ado, here are some top-notch cannabis strains that go great with your pumpkin spice latte.
This bright and citrusy strain can add a tangy twist to your pumpkin spice latte. It pairs well with the natural sweetness of the pumpkin, creating a delightful contrast.

Everyone’s experience with cannabis can be different, so feel free to experiment and find what works best for you. When consuming cannabis, it’s always important to start low and go slow, especially with edibles and drinkables. Enjoy these pairings responsibly and savor the flavors of fall!
Personally, I adore this recipe. The pumpkin and spice combo is already a winner, but adding that cannabis kick takes it to a whole new level. Feel free to cut down on the sugar or swap it out for a sugar substitute if you’re not big on sweet drinks. And hey, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try it with almond or oat milk?
Remember, consuming cannabis should be a pleasant experience, so always start with a lower dose than you think you might need, especially if you’re new to edibles. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects, so don’t rush to top up if you’re not feeling it straight away.
So, there you have it! A super easy, super tasty cannabis-infused pumpkin spice latte. Give it a try, and let us know what you think. Stay cozy, friends!
