If you want to start your day off right, then there’s no better way to do it than with weed. Some find it difficult to roll out of bed in the morning. But not pot smokers. In fact, mornings are perhaps their favorite part of the day. Why? Because they get to wake and bake, that’s why. From motivating you to tackle the day to easing away your worries, here are 10 reasons why you should start every day with a good wake and bake.

Benefits of Wake and Bake

Between people and work, there are days when you feel like losing your mind. But when you start the day off with weed, you have more patience to deal with both.

6. Wake and Bakes get those Creative Juices Flowing and Heightens Productivity

Whether you’re attempting to come up with some new ideas for work, or are finally getting a day off and want to take full advantage, starting your day with a wake and bake will not only encourage you to think outside the box, but it will also keep you on your toes. It’s scientifically proven that weed increases productivity and stimulates creative drive.

7. On Days that you Wake Up Too Early, Waking and Baking with an Indica will Help you Gain some Extra Zzz’s

Maybe your dog demanded to be let out the house earlier than usual. Or, perhaps you had an early morning meeting and didn’t get as much sleep as you would have liked. If you have nothing else to do and want to catch up on your sleep, then smoking on an indica will surely knock you out. Then, when you’re finally ready to start the day, you’ll feel more refreshed and rejuvenated.

Best Wake and Bake Strains

Jack Herer

Jack Herer You Have To See This Hilarious McDonalds Billboard About Munchies

Jack Herer is a famous sativa for a reason. Not only is it named after a legendary cannabis activist, but it constantly delivers a peppy, energizing high. This strain is as stimulating as a mild cup of coffee, while at the same time promotes mellow creativity and focus.

There is a little indica in this strain’s genealogy. This addition calms down the raciness usually associated with pure sativa strains.

You can find Jack Herer almost anywhere, and it regularly produces up to 20 percent THC.

Chocolope

The fruity, chocolate flavor of Chocolope goes well with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea. A near 100% sativa, your mind will be buzzing after just a taste or two of this strain.

While Chocolope features a strong cerebral, euphoric uplift, it also tends to be quite arousing.  If morning lovin’ is in the cards for you, this sativa is sure to add a little extra spice to the fire.

Chocolope can get pretty potent, with a THC content between 17 and 21%. Novice consumers might want to start slow with this bud.

Maui Wowie

Super Sour Diesel is the perfect strain for anyone who needs to start their day with intense mental energy. While most sativas are like a strong cup of coffee, Super Sour Diesel might be more like a double espresso.

The THC content in Super Sour Diesel averages about 24%, putting it on the potent side in the cannabis world.

The THC content in this strain is moderate, usually averaging between 16 and 18 percent. This makes Jack’s Cleaner a great option for new consumers. As its name suggests, this flower has a strong chemical lemon aroma. To balance out the sharpness, pair this strain with something creamy for breakfast.

Pineapple Express is no mind-blowing super bud. Rather, this hybrid is a true well-balanced delight. It is energizing enough to one of the best wake and bake strains, but it’s not associated with the racy anxiety that often accompanies sativas.

The indica genetics in this strain provide a nice and easy physical relaxation. You’re likely to very feel calm yet also clear-headed and focused.

Super Silver Haze

Super Silver Haze is another throwback strain that’s great for cleaning. While the effects of this bud can be a little foggy thanks to Haze genetics, this strain is focused and energizing overall.

A great strain for spring cleaning, this bud is zippy and stimulating. This strain is an excellent wake ‘n bake bud, making it great for big organization or landscaping projects that could take an entire day.

The THC in this strain tends to reach up to 19 percent THC, making it moderately potent. Super Lemon Haze and Super Sour Diesel are both offspring of this strain that would also do the trick for a major cleaning project.

OG Kush

Like Blue Dream, OG Kush is one of the most common strains to find in dispensaries and perhaps even from a dealer or coffee shop. While this bud can lean toward the sedative side of things, OG Kush is considered a well-balanced and happy hybrid overall. Expect and easy smoke and a huge smile on your face after a little bit of this bud.

While not exactly energizing, OG Kush would be a great choice for those who really hate to clean. Silly and easygoing, this strain will put you in a mellow, laidback mood that both you and your cleaning partners will appreciate. Pick up this strain if you don’t have tight time deadlines for getting things done.

Best Way To Wake and Bake

If you think you don’t have time to smoke weed in the morning, or that you’ve come up with the best wake and bake routine yet, then the Breakfast Bowl is about to prove you wrong.

Once upon a time, before it became the Breakfast Bowl, this bong was something you only saw on the internet, but could never actually buy. Then, Ryan Hart, its creator, came along and turned the idea into a whole product. Now, the Breakfast Bowl isn’t just a dream-come-true, but it’s also a fully functional device, just like any regular bong or pipe.

The Breakfast Bowl is hand-crafted using top-quality borosilicate glass and features a 2 cup eating bowl with a waterpipe built into its chamber, which is connected by a downstem and mouthpiece. Despite being linked, neither the bowl for your herbs or the bowl for your Lucky Charms ever come into contact with one another. No weed bits in your milk. Just pure, cool hits of the dank topped off by spoonfuls of milk and cereal.

Thanks to the Breakfast Bowl, you never have to choose between breakfast and the most crucial hit of the day.

The Breakfast Bowl comes in two different bundles: the Breakfast Bowl Bundle and the Breakfast Bowl Artistic Bundle. With the first set, you get the Breakfast Bowl base, your choice of slide and mouthpiece, a coordinating debowler ashtray, one hookah hose, and a cleaning plug set, all for $119. Plus shipping is free. As for the other bundle, you get the base, a Signature Series 18mm slide and mouthpiece, a coordinating debowler ashtray, one hookah hose, and a cleaning plug set, along with free shipping, for $10 more.

You also have the option of getting the Breakfast Bowl Party Pack, which is the most expensive but comes with extra value. For starters, you get three hookah hoses in addition to a 3-piece hookah attachment, making this pack perfect for sharing a session with friends. Aside from that, you get the base, a faded needle, a blue bowl piece, a transparent blue debowler ashtray, a cork coaster, and a cleaning plug set. Talk about the ultimate party pipe.

There’s no wrong way to wake and bake or to eat your cereal. But the Breakfast Bowl combines the best of both bowls to make waking and baking more convenient than ever. Sure, you can always stick to your regular wake and bake routine. But will you look nearly as cool getting your first sesh of the day on as you will with this amazing pipe? We cereal-ously doubt it.

Best Time To Wake And Bake

Spoiler alert: the best time to wake and bake is in the morning!  But when exactly, you may still be asking? We suggest you wake and bake with your morning coffee or tea. If you have to head out early, make sure you set an alarm so you don’t lose track of time when you’re waking and baking.

We personally love toking up first thing after waking up, before our other morning routine activities, like breakfast, showering, and brushing our teeth. That way, once you’ve toked up, you can shower and eat breakfast extra with pleasure. Last thing is remembering to brush your teeth before leaving the house and you’ll be fresh and ready for the day without smelling like weed.
