From lollipops to brownies, the sky is the limit for creative cannabis edibles. As pumpkin spice season is upon us, you may be wondering how your business can maximize the pumpkin trend in your cannabis products. Here are a few ideas for seasonal treats:
1. Pumpkin spice butter
Similar to an apple or peanut butter, using pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice as your base you can make a product that functions as a spread or a dip. It can also be used by customers as an ingredient. Encourage them to use pumpkin spice butter in their recipes. If you’re feeling promotional, host a pumpkin spice butter recipe contest!
2. Lollipops and hard candies
Pumpkin extract and spices make for a lickable, suckable treat. You may also consider a lozenge, as pumpkin spice season goes hand in hand with flu and cold season. The medicinal properties of cannabis lend themselves to a dual purpose, here.
3. Pumpkin baked goods
While brownies are the traditional baked good of choice, a hearty pumpkin spice muffin will get things in the fall spirit. There are a few varieties of pumpkin muffins, like pumpkin streusel or pumpkin cream cheese. Pumpkin loaf is also a tasty option. Pair your pumpkin baked goods with a pumpkin tea or coffee blend for that extra level of pumpkin goodness.
4. Chocolate truffles
Fill the inside with pumpkin spice and cannabis goodness. It’s a heavenly escape one chocolatey bite at a time. Options could include pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, and pumpkin butter. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate would work well for any of those combinations.
5. Customized pumpkin edibles
Treat your customers to a one-of-a-kind pumpkin experience by allowing them to customize a variety of different edibles. For edibles that can be customized by ingredients, like baked goods, candies or teas, provide a pumpkin spice option. You can combine pumpkin spice with edible chocolate bars or other flavor mash ups. Let your customers take part in this fun, bespoke process.
No matter how you choose to incorporate pumpkin spice in your cannabis products, it’s sure to get a social buzz going.
