Any stoner worth their kief knows that sweater weather is nothing without an arsenal of fall-themed cannabis recipes to keep the good times rolling all season long. Who doesn’t yearn for cozy Fall days spent getting stoned while noshing on Fall’s signature treats?
Almost everyone experiences the inexplicable urge to hunt down Fall’s staple ingredients when the leaves start turning and the weather starts cooling. Let this list of fall-themed cannabis recipes (and your cravings) guide you on how to prepare some truly happy meals this season.
Pumpkin Spice French Toast
No fall-inspired recipe list is complete without some pumpkin spice. How this spice came to be so associated with Fall is interesting: the spice is essentially a blend of some of Fall’s most distinct and popular flavours: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and sometimes allspice. Yet, most of these spices are native to Asia and Southeast Asia, and it wasn’t until the 18th century that these spices made it across the ocean. Pumpkins were already grown natively in North America and used in savoury recipes by Indigenous cultures, but early pilgrims decided to take the rebellious route and make a sweet dessert out of it, aided by some of these new spices. Hence, pumpkin spice was born. Since then, 200 years of Thanksgiving gastronomic traditions and Starbucks’ aggressive marketing of their limited edition, Fall-only pumpkin spice lattes have caused the spice to explode in popularity.
Turn the sweetness overload up to 11 by pairing this spice with some french toast, and you’ve got a killer breakfast that’ll keep you high as long as the sun is out.
While maple syrup is enjoyed all year round, there is no denying that it is commonly associated with Fall. A lot of this can be chalked up to brands hopping on the red maple leaf branding, making it both a Fall-time and Canadian staple.
Like pumpkins, maple syrup and sugar were enjoyed on this land by Indigenous people long before the arrival of Europeans. Its timelessness can be attributed to its unique and layered sweetness, which also pairs surprisingly well with savoury offerings.
It is indeed an incredibly versatile ingredient. A four-ounce live resin maple syrup jar can contain up to 900mg of THC and can be used as an ingredient in many different foods such as maple butter nut-mix.
Ah, the unwavering and unfailing brownie, serving hungry stoners since we first learned to apply our chemistry skills to gastronomy, creating the culture-defining cannabis butter.
Brownies are good all year long. A solid brownie recipe can come in clutch any time you’re hungry, but especially during Fall and Winter when feasts abound and dessert cravings peak.
First, you will need to know how to make the aforementioned cannabis butter as this is the basis of any good cannabis dessert. Check out this recipe to get started. Once you’ve mastered the art of cannabis butter, you can pretty much churn out any kind of baked good. As the weather gets colder, you can even try your hand at a Winter-themed dessert in the form of a cannabis-infused eggnog cheesecake.
Here is a reliable recipe to make the ultimate weed brownie.
Cinnamon buns or cinnamon rolls are the perfect sinful treat for Fall, and who doesn’t love sinning? This dessert is so beloved that Sweden and Finland even have a Cinnamon Roll Day on October 4th of every year.
Again, cannabis butter is a must-have for this recipe. Aside from that, you are pretty free to go off the rails with this one. Just ask Wolferman’s, an American bakery credited with making the largest cinnamon roll ever, weighing in at a whopping and delicious 521.5 kg.
I’m not saying you should defy God and try to make an absolute unit of a cinnamon roll, but I’m also not saying you shouldn’t.

Don’t Gorge Yourself, Enjoy Yourself with Cannabis-Infused Treats
These cannabis-infused treats may be tasty and tempting, but always remember that edibles can hit hard. Don’t fret if you get too high, though—try these tricks if you ever feel uncomfortable. I also recommend sharing these treats and making a gathering out of the baking process. The Fall season is full of traditions rooted in community, after all.
