The phrase “wake and bake” has never been about cakes and pies. In the marijuana industry it’s one of the most common phrases that needs no definition. Waking up and smoking marijuana in the morning is one of the most popular pastimes for cannabis users, but is it good for you? What are the pros and cons of the wake and bake method? 

There are many stoners who love to smoke weed in the morning but others aren’t sold that it’s the right time to smoke. If you’re a proponent of wake and bake then you have no trouble medicating in the morning. If you’re not a fan, it’s probably because you were at one time, and you enjoyed it a little too much, forcing you to re-evaluate when you smoke.

The Positives of Wake and Bake

Starting the Day Happy

The obvious reason to smoke weed early in the morning is to start your day on a positive note. All of your cares and worries tend to fade, clearing the way for a happy and positive day. If your day starts off with a smooth, euphoric sensation, you can have the patience and understanding to tackle any negativity that comes your way.

The Morning High

Most stoners claim that it is easier to get high in the morning, and there are medical reasons as to why this occurs. At night, your body is in complete rest in order to reset itself, therefore it makes sense for someone to get higher in the morning. There’s something about that state of being you’re in just after you wake up that makes you more sensitive to the effects of marijuana.

Breakfast Just Tastes Better

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and weed makes all food taste better. This meal is often rushed and sometimes eaten in the car on the way to work. However, taking the time to taste your food after smoking can enhance the flavor. Wake and bake makes breakfast much more satisfying.

Trick Your Tolerance Levels

For avid marijauna users, tolerance can be an issue, leading to stretches of time where you don’t feel high after smoking during the day or in the evening. Some are forced to take tolerance, or “T” breaks, in order to reset themselves. If you’re a frequent user, then sleep is probably the longest gap between smoke sessions, and a break can do wonders for your tolerance. This is nature’s way for you to completely cheat your way out of having to take a tolerance break. Again, you get the highest in the morning, and it always feels like the first time.

But it does mean that you get more tolerant over the long run. The wake and bake method is not a real tolerance buster. It gives you a moment in the day that’s kind of like cheating.

The Negatives of Wake and Bake

There are both positives and negatives in regards to wake and bake, and now let’s take a look at the cons.

It’s Harder to Get High Later On

When you decide to get high in the morning, you are possibly taking away the chance of getting high later in the day. For the rest of the day or evening, you’re looking at highs that don’t even touch how you felt in the morning.

Burn Out

When you start smoking in the morning, it can shrink your day considerably. After a morning smoke, you might be ready for bed right after dinner, eliminating the ability to get anything done later in the day. This can lead to too much sleep, which doesn’t sound bad but can be dangerous. This causes a phenomenon called “the witching hour” that usually happens in the late afternoon around 3 p.m. where you are fighting sleep or a nap.

Where Are My Keys?

Although being high and feeling good is the goal, smoking all day can lead to laziness, plain and simple. You can get so lost in the pleasure of being high that normal, everyday tasks seem like way too much work. And you lose important stuff, forgetting where you last put them — like your car keys. By the end of the day, you will realize that you haven’t accomplished anything you intended to do. You can attempt to avoid this by staying productive by using sativa-dominant strains.

Your Stash Starts to Shrink

No, you haven’t forgotten where you hid your stash. Chances are, you smoked it all. With wake and bake, you can smoke through your stash before breakfast and there’s not much to smoke later. This is just a natural consequence of smoking weed early in the day.

It Can Be Expensive

Smoking in the morning, which almost always leads to smoking in the evening, can really hurt your wallet. The key is maintaining a balance that won’t make you spend more money than you should.

The Bottom Line

Just like everything in life, balance is necessary and can help with some of the negatives of wake and bake. Most stoners will tell you the positives far outweigh the negatives, and it’s often about timing and tolerance. Now that you have both sides of the wake and bake method, you can smoke marijuana before breakfast or after dinner. The choice is yours. 

By the way, your keys are on the coffee table.
