Morning routines typically set the tone for the rest of the day, because if someone wakes up and is very productive, then they will most likely be just as productive for the rest of the day. The same is true if someone wakes up and decides to stay in bed instead, then the remainder of their day will most likely be just as lazy and relaxing. Many cannabis consumers actually have a morning routine of their own that involves marijuana and sets the tone for the rest of their day, known as the classic morning ritual, the wake and bake. For those who are unfamiliar with the wake and bake, it’s as simple as the title, consumers wake up and immediately smoke marijuana. Some consumers enjoy performing this morning ritual every morning because it helps them throughout the day, but like any other form of consumption, waking and baking has both its pros and cons.
First, many consumers enjoy waking up and smoking because it helps them start their day on a high note because if they smoke a sativa, it often gives them the energy boost they need to keep going strong all day. Many consumers actually prefer to smoke a sativa rather than drinking coffee in the morning, so in a way waking and baking is their caffeine. Marijuana users also enjoy waking and baking because it is the only quiet and peace they have before they have to get up and start working. The effects of the cannabis creates this relaxing ritual because it helps ease anxiety when stress from work really hits, so consumers who wake and bake are more prepared for the rest of their day.
