If you’ve ever consumed marijuana in the morning, you may have found yourself wondering about the science behind a wake and bake. For some, catching a head full of THC is just as much a part of wiping the cobwebs from the brain than several cups of coffee. But what is it about a wake and bake that has the ability to pull a person out of the morning funk and give them the strength to hit the ground running?

Not every marijuana consumer does a wake and bake. But, according to a 2017 Global Drug Survey, nearly 22 percent of the pot smokers in the United States do, in fact, catch a buzz within the first 10 minutes of the day. This makes the Land of the Free the leading nation in the world for wake and bake activities.
Although the data does not give any explanation for this phenomenon, there is some speculation. It is likely due to the majority of the American workforce being miserable. Last year, a Gallup poll found that two-thirds of the workers across the nation “hate” their jobs. What’s more is, over half of them feel no connection to their work.
Most of the respondents said they simply do the bare minimum in order to collect a check. But being high in the morning has a way of erasing some of the anxiety of dead-end employment. For some, wake and bake even provides a boost that lends to super-productivity.

So, before anything else you reach for the smoking device waiting patiently on the nightstand for you to engage in the most sacred of morning rituals: the wake and bake. All of sudden, that desperate outlook on the day has somehow been transformed. The thought of getting out of bed and even putting on pants seems a little less doom and gloom than it was 30 seconds before. Marijuana has made the day more palatable.

Some believe the intensity is nothing more than an illusion—the brain is not functioning at full capacity yet, thus creating the perception of a more intense buzz. But there is a more logical reason. When smoking marijuana first thing in the morning, the THC is hitting a drained body. It is similar to how coffee reacts differently in people who drink it in the morning, as opposed to later in the day.
In the morning, the body has been without nutrients for several hours. This makes THC appear more potent. Why? Nothing else has yet been consumed for cannabinoids to compete with. Think of it in terms of other medications. If taken on an empty stomach, these drugs are stronger than usual. As for the achieving the uplifting effects from a wake and bake, the science is in the hundreds of components in a strain.
If you are wake and bake with anything other than a Sativa, you’re doing it wrong. Sativa’s can provide creativity, energy and focus. Sour Diesel and Blue Dream are excellent selections. An Indica is a mellower buzz. These strains are much better for baking before bed.
Contrary to popular opinion, it is also helpful to eat something shortly after the first hit of the day. Although a person might be high, happy and ready for work, the body still needs food to function at its maximum capacity.
Vaporizers can provide the early high timer with more control over the size of their hits than old-school methods, like smoking a bowl. Low dose edibles are also an easy way to maintain an even buzz throughout the day. Depending on a person’s work environment, they are also less conspicuous.
