Nothing says Halloween season like wearing your favorite oversized sweatshirt, with a bowl of roasted cannabis pumpkin seeds, while watching your favorite scary movie. Have a ton of cannaoil but out of cannabutter? With this roasted cannabis pumpkin seed recipe, you can use either cannaoil or cannabutter without much of a difference in flavor. You can also coat the pumpkin seeds with butter or oil and then add cannabis tincture while mixing the ingredients to infuse the roasted cannabis pumpkin seeds with cannabis tincture.
One important step in making roasted pumpkin seeds is extracting the seeds for the pumpkin. This is easily done by cutting a round hole in the top of the pumpkin around the pumpkins stem. If you can cut the top with a slight angle so the top of the pumpkin can sit back in its place so you can make a Jack O'Lantern while waiting for your cannabis-infused pumpkin seeds to bake.
After the top of the pumpkin has been cut open, remove the pumpkin pulp and seeds while gently scraping the inside of the pumpkin. Remove as much of the pulp and seeds as possible and place in a bowl.
After the pulp and seeds have been removed from the pumpkin separate the pumpkin seeds from the pulp using 2 separate bowls. Wrap and store the pumpkin pulp for future use in pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, or pumpkin pie!
Place the pumpkin seeds into a strainer and rinse well with cold water, making sure to remove any pumpkin pulp residue from the surface of the seeds. After the seeds have been cleaned lay out evenly on a clean kitchen towel or paper towel to dry from any excess water.
