Oh, the wake and bake - that time-honored tradition of getting high as soon as you get up in the morning. The A.M. ritual has been the topic of scientific studies, listicles, and thinkpieces. It’s even been parodied in movies (Blazing Saddles, anyone?).
And of course, there's no shortage of 'wake and bake' memes out there.
But despite the wake-and-bake's notoriety, the morning is not actually the most popular time to get high, according to the 2018 Civilized Culture Poll.
To celebrate 420, we teamed up with PSB to survey over 1,600 Americans and Canadians about when they preferred to light up. Only 23 per cent of Canadians and 26 per cent of Americans said that they usually consume cannabis in the morning.
The most popular time to smoke pot, it seems, is the late evening. More than half of Canadians (56 percent) preferred to partake around 9 or 10 p.m. Americans preferred that time slot only slightly less at 46 percent.
This might be because cannabis consumers tend to defy stereotypes. Rather than getting high all day, they are saving their toking for after the day’s work is done, when they can use marijuana to drift off to sleep, or 'dab and nap,' if you will.
But have no fear: the 'wake and bake' isn’t going anywhere. Whether it’s founded in fact or not, it will live on in cannabis culture so long as there are stoner comedies.
