Having a morning routine is key to setting a positive tone for the rest of the day. That’s why on those days where you stay in bed longer than you should, you often feel like the rest of the day is dragging. Whether it’s walking the dog, sipping a coffee, taking a steaming hot shower, or crushing it at the gym before work, a morning routine will help you get off on the right foot. Some cannabis users have a classic morning ritual too, the wake and bake.
No, you don’t have to search the cupboards for your KitchenAid mixer (though a moist muffin will be more than welcome after you’re done). When someone says they like to wake n bake, they are referring to smoking marijuana first thing in the morning. Smoking right after rolling out of bed is an enjoyable morning ritual for many stoners and can be compared to brewing and savoring a cup of Joe to kickstart the day on a positive note.
Surprisingly to some, many regular cannabis smokers have a heightened desire to get things done, improved creativity, and more of a goal-oriented mindset after they partake. Getting things done around the house like cleaning or yardwork are some activities you can do after waking and baking. Of course, this spark of motivation is not the case for everyone and the weed strain you choose makes a big difference. If you’re thinking about doing a wake and bake before work, think twice. Marijuana is still illegal at the federal level and depending on what state you’re in and what kind of work you do (and if you have a medical card), showing up blazed to the office could get you in a lot of trouble. If you’re one of the lucky ones who are your own boss and can go about your day and get work done while high, then go ahead and give it a try. You may even want to do a wake and bake if you know you’ll have a slow work from home day. These are a few ways to stay productive while high:
Some smokers need more of a push to stay on track. While still in bed (or the night before) be sure to write a to-do list or set goals to accomplish in case you get distracted and forget everything that needs to get done. A simple pen and notepad are fine, but if you’ll be running around town it may be easier to use your Reminders or Notes smartphone app. Don’t forget to check things off as you complete them.
If you have a busy day ahead, you probably don’t want too much of a head buzz first thing in the morning. This is the time of the day that you’ll get the highest since you haven’t been smoking for roughly seven or eight hours and your tolerance will be at an all time low. Start off slow with just a hit or two and assess how you feel. Remember that all strains produce different effects, so choose one that has been reviewed by other smokers who wake and bake like the ones below.
Start your day off right with a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that won’t make you too relaxed or low energy. In addition, you can now pick bud for additional wellness properties like stress reduction, enhanced creativity, or feelings of euphoria depending on your morning mood.
Other strains you can try in the morning are Sour Diesel, Green Crack, White Widow, Jack Herer, Pineapple Express, and Chocolope.
