At this very moment, while you are staring at your screen and reading these words, someone in this world is getting high. Seriously, there is always someone smoking marijuana! Whether it’s some random person from across the world, or your friends who didn’t invite you to the sesh, marijuana is constantly being consumed. In addition, it’s being consumed at any time of the day! You can get high in the morning, afternoon, evening, and at night. Shoot, you could even wake up in the middle of the night and smoke a quick bowl before dozing off again.
One very common time of the day to smoke is early in the morning, the moment that you wake up. We call that a wake & bake, because you wake up and get baked! Have you ever tried to wake & bake? If not, it’s easy, just wake up and get high! If you have, that’s cool too, but we have some practices that you can try in order to get the most out of your wake & bake. These ways will allow you to fully get high and prepared to take the day on!
Best Time of Day to Get High
Did you know that smoking in the morning is the best time of the day to get high? It’s true! This is because THC is being absorbed in a drained body, or a body that has been without nutrients for many hours. As a result, the brain is not fully functioning in the morning, making the high seem more intense. In addition, the THC has nothing to compete with, therefore making absorption must faster.
Think about how coffee or even medications seem stronger when you take them right when you wake up in the morning, and on an empty stomach, compared to later in the day. Marijuana has this same effect. So if you are looking for the best time to really feel a high, then a wake & bake is perfect for you.
Use a Sativa Strain
You’ll also have to figure out which strain to use. Always, and I repeat, always use a sativa strain. These strains can leave you feeling uplifted, energized, and creative. What a great way to start a day, right? Using its counterpart, an indica strain, is typically recommended for nighttime use, as these strains can make you feel tired and relaxed.
Two sativa strains that we recommend you try for a wake and bake is Sour Diesel or Green Crack. You can also check out our list of the top 10 best sativa strains out there if you want to explore more strains:
Mix With Coffee
Don’t literally mix your weed in with some coffee. What I mean is once you finish smoking, drink some coffee! You can also drink coffee then smoke, whichever works for you. And it does not matter what type of coffee that you use, as long its coffee and the kind that you like! Try out some different combinations, and see which has you feeling the best in the morning.
Mixing coffee with marijuana in the morning is a practice that has been around for decades. It’s commonly referred to as a hippie speedball. Speedballs, however, sometimes include cannabis-infused coffees. These can be purchased (where weed is legal), or even made by making a regular cup of coffee, but using cannabutter in it. Don’t like coffee? Use an energy drink instead. If you don’t like those either, then you’ll just have to use that sativa as a stimulant.
In recent marijuana technology, the perfect wake and bake coffee mug has been introduced. It is great for those who do want to drink coffee and smoke weed in the morning. Fortunately, these allow you to do both! It’s actually a pipe that is also a coffee mug. It can be used to hold and drink coffee (like a normal mug), but also has a bowl on the side so you can pack some and get high. Take a look at one for yourself:
Finish With a Meal
Breakfast should always follow a wake and bake. Not only because food can help your high, but it can also help your body. As humans, we need food in the morning in order to get nutritions and be able to function properly. Breakfast isn’t called the most important meal of the day for nothing.
A good meal after a wake and bake can also help to sustain the THC in your system, possibly increasing the length of your high. And let’s not forget about the munchies. If those kick in, breakfast may taste much better than usual. Just be careful, as it may tempt you to want to eat two breakfasts.
After a wake and bake, you should feel happy, uplifted and ready to take on any day! Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed this post. Happy smoking!
