Classic, soothing, and packed with warming spices, this easy-to-make cannabis pumpkin spice latte brings together this traditional Fall favorite with soothing cannabis for a relaxing experience.
Cannabis Pumpkin Spice Latte
Being from Upstate NY, I am about as basic as it gets when it comes to all things Fall.
I'm talking Autumn-scented candles, cozy knit sweaters, soft blankets, apple picking, and yes, all things pumpkin spice
It wouldn't take away that sense of nostalgia I feel every time I sip the first PSL of the season, and it wouldn't make it any less enjoyable.
But the truth is, I live at least 30-minutes from the closest Starbucks, so I tend to enjoy one 'real' pumpkin spice latte each year, and then make my own at home.
Of course, I do like making my own at home because I can control the ingredients, and make it all the time.
So here is my easy-to-make-at-home version that is naturally dairy-free, gluten-free, yet still creamy and delicious, and even better than any PSL you've ever had before because it is made with your choice of cannabis oil.
Of course, there are many different ways to make a cannabis-infused PSL, so we've included instructions for infusing this recipe with cannabis coconut oil, cannabutter, full-extract cannabis oil FECO, and even leftover cannabis pulp.

Ways to Infuse Your Cannabis PSL
There are many different ways to make a cannabis-infused PSL, so we've included instructions for infusing this recipe with CBD oil, cannabis coconut oil, cannabutter, full-extract cannabis oil (FECO), and even leftover cannabis pulp.
Infuse with CBD Oil
If you are new to CBD or cannabis in general, CBD is taking the wellness scene by storm.
CBD is non-intoxicating meaning it does not give the feeling of intoxication or ‘being high’.
Instead, CBD provides many benefits of the cannabis plant without the high.
If you need access to high-quality CBD oil, you can purchase CBD oil from my shop.
Infuse with Cannabis Coconut Oil or Cannabutter
Infuse with Cannabis Concentrates
If you are a medical marijuana patient or live in a recreationally legal state, chances are you may have access to cannabis concentrates.
You can easily use cannabis concentrates in this recipe to make a delicious infused pumpkin spice latte.
From distillate or CO2 oil, to shatter or wax, and FECO or RSO, all can work for this recipe.
Depending on what concentrate you are using, you will want to ensure that your cannabis concentrate is decarbed first if needed.
If you are not sure if your cannabis concentrate needs to be decarbed, you can check this guide here.
Once you know whether or not you need to decarb your concentrate, you can gently warm it up and mix it into the milk called for in this recipe.
How much you will add is up to you and your personal taste preferences.
Infuse with Leftover Cannabis Pulp
Yes, leftover cannabis pulp is a thing! And if you're anything like me, you don't want any part of your amazing cannabis plant to go to waste.
While many people toss it, many anecdotal reports suggest these leftovers may be very potent!
Customizing Your Infused Pumpkin Spice Latte
I believe that we all have our own definition of healthy, so how you define a recipe as healthy may be different than how I do.
For me, that means making this recipe with dairy-free milk, because that is what makes my tummy feel best - and adding some sugar - because what is life without sugar?
Feel free to substitute different types of milk in this recipe depending on what you personally prefer, including cannabis-infused milk.
Whether it is traditional dairy milk or plant-based options like homemade hemp seed milk, sunflower seed milk, almond, cashew, or coconut - it is totally up to you.
Just remember, it may not froth the same way.
How to Determine The Dosing
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.
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.

Cannabis Pumpkin Spice Latte
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat add the coffee, pumpkin, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract. Heat for 3-5 minutes, or until hot, but not boiling.
- While the coffee is cooking, add the milk to the frothing pitcher and place over medium heat.
- When the temperature reaches between 120-150°F, you can begin to use the frother. Remove the pitcher from heat and continue to froth when the temperature reaches 160°F.
- Move the frother in a circular, up & down motion, until 1-2 inches of foam is formed.
- Divide the coffee mixture between two mugs and add the desired amount of cannabis oil.
- Using a spoon to hold back the foam, add the hot milk to each cup. Aim for a 2:1 milk to coffee ratio.
- Spoon the remaining foam into each mug. Top with freshly grated nutmeg as desired.
