Wake and Bake: Starting the Morning With Cannabis

Many people can’t imagine starting their day without taking a sip of coffee, tea, working out or practicing some other morning ritual, but there are also the ones who like to take a puff of cannabis when they wake up.

Starting a day with cannabis has its name in the cannabis community: it is called wake and bake.

In today’s blog post, you will find out what exactly wake and bake is, and how to make this experience more enjoyable.

What Does Wake and Bake Mean?

The term wake and bake in the cannabis world is used to describe consuming marijuana right after waking up or some time upon waking up.

Wake and bake is a ritual of smoking cannabis right after waking up.

Some consumers take cannabis in the morning right after they open their eyes, but others start with the wake and bake ritual after some other activities early in the morning like brushing teeth, taking a shower, or eating breakfast.

How to Wake and Bake?

There are some simple tips and tricks that can upgrade your wake and bake routine and make it more pleasant. So with no further delay, let’s jump right into it.

Do Some Planning and Schedule Wake and Bake Time

Planning a time for wake and bake is a very practical idea. Thinking through a couple of simple things such as the exact time when you will wake and bake or what you will eat can make this practice more successful.

Since many consumers want to have enough time for this activity and don’t like to have any tasks after consuming cannabis, it is good to clean up your schedule and reorganize your time and activities for the day.

Planning out wake and bake makes this experience more sleek.

By clearing up your schedule, you will have enough time to take cannabis without any important business, appointments or calls that need to be done.

Of course, some consumers  go outside after their wake and bake ritual, but the majority of them want to spend time at home, in those cozy clothes and don’t want to bother even going to the store.

Planning what you will eat before or after waking and baking will allow you to stock up necessary groceries and even prepare food the night before, so you will have everything ready for the next morning.

Stay Hydrated

Since our body is made up of about 60 percent of water, it is very important to regularly drink water. Good hydration will help your body function properly.

Hydration is very important for wake and bake.

To prevent dry mouth, during waking and baking, people usually drink tea, lemonade, orange or other fruity juice, which is fine as long as these beverages contain enough water.

Choose the Right Strain 

Different cannabis strains produce different effects. As you may be aware, indica strains can give that relaxing effect and sativa on the contrary can produce energizing uplift buzz.

Although most of the strains on the market are indica-sativa hybrids, which means they can produce effects from both strains, consumers often choose sativa dominant strains for the wake and bake simply to avoid that soothing effect that will draw them back to bed.

Cannabis connoisseurs often choose Sativa dominant strains for wake and bake.

Having all this in mind, cannabis consumers usually choose Pineapple express, Ultra Sour or Island Sweet Skunk strains for the wake and bake activity. 

In the end, it is important to mention that every consumer is different and it’s up to you to choose which strain to use according to your preferences and needs.

Pick Comfy Clothes

Choosing clothes that are not too tight, those which you feel most comfortable in, is another useful tip that can affect your wake and bake experience.

Comfy, loose-fitting clothes are go-to choice for most people who enjoy wake and bake.

Loose-fitting clothes will make you feel more relaxed and the overall activity more enjoyable.

Have in mind that cannabis smell can easily get caught in fabric, so don’t pick clothes that you are planning to wear outside but the ones that you usually wear when staying at home.

Choose a Cosy Place

Thinking through the right place in your apartment for consuming cannabis might sound like a crazy idea, but it can be very practical.

The place where you do wake and bake can affect the overall experience.

Whether it is a sofa in the living room, a favourite armchair or a bed in the bedroom, choose the place where you feel most relaxed and where nothing will disturb you.

Picking the right lighting, or even putting on your favourite music are details that can contribute to a soothing atmosphere that will make waking and baking more enjoyable.

Freshen Your Breath

Brushing your teeth after a wake and bake session will allow you to get rid of marijuana breath. 

Toothpaste and mouthwash will eliminate marijuana taste in the mouth, which is important especially if you want to go outside and don’t want to bring weed odour with you.

Plus, the clean breath will allow you to enjoy more of the flavours of breakfast and beverages that you are planning to consume during the day.

Prepare an Easy Meal

As mentioned earlier, you can plan what you will eat in the morning and prepare the groceries or whole meal the night before, so you don’t have to bother with meal decisions during wake and bake. Here are a few simple and quick breakfast recipes to give you an idea of what to eat.

    • ½ cup of oats
    • 1 cup of milk or Greek yogurt
    • Several blueberries 
    • A couple of chopped strawberries

The Choom Gang

It began in 1979 with a group of friends on a small hawaiian island, with an even smaller van. This weed loving crew would go on to influence our world, but back then it wasn’t about the future, it was about having good times with good friends. Plenty has changed since then, but one thing remains the same; they are still sharing adventures, sparking ideas, and cultivating good times.

2. When canning any food at home (e.g. cannabutter or canna-oil) you should be very careful since there can be a risk of the appearance of toxin that can lead to botulism, a very serious illness. This happens when food is canned, processed, stored or handled. Bacteria that cause botulism can very quickly grow in cannabis edibles that are made at home. Bacteria can cause botulism poisoning which is a very serious illness that affects the body’s nerves and produces serious health consequences.
