How to Wake and Bake Like a Pro

Posted by First Page on

If you're looking for a way to start your day that's both productive and enjoyable, look no further than the ancient art of wake and baking. While it may seem like a daunting task to get high immediately after waking up (and before work), doing it properly with the right preparation can definitely lead to a pretty epic experience. In this blog post, we will share some pro tips on how to wake and bake before work and still be able to get through a (relatively) productively day.

What does wake and bake mean? Is it even worth a try?

Wake and bake

In case you stumbled into this blog by accident and have no idea what we're talking about, here's what wake and bake means, according to the internet's most trusted source of definitions,

"Wake and bake - The act of waking up in the morning and partaking of the chronic by means of a bong without leaving the comfort of one's bed. Made possible by possession of a serving wench/lad to present baking instruments and narcotics on a silver tray or, failing this convenience, the forethought to leave apparatus within reach of the squalid heap where one collapsed in a munted stupor the previous evening."

While the exact origin of wake and baking is unknown, we have good reasons to believe that it was invented on a Monday morning, likely as a remedy to alleviate the stress of a universal human struggle - going to work. From a scientific standpoint, smoking weed this early in the day can help achieve the following effects:


  • Relieve the pain of going to work
  • Elevate the taste of bacon and eggs
  • Temporarily resolve marital conflicts
  • Improve the likability of husbands, wives, and colleagues


When wake and baking is done properly, achieving a relatively productive day is not out of the question. Plan your first wake and bake before work with the following tips.

Choose the right strain

Bong strain

This is probably the most important part of wake and baking before work. You want to make sure you pick a strain that will give you energy and creativity, without making you too paranoid or anxious. A good rule of thumb is to stay away from indica strains, which are more likely to make you feel couch-locked, and instead go for a sativa or hybrid. Some good options for strains that are perfect for wake and baking before work include:


Green Crack: A popular sativa strain that is known for its energizing and uplifting effects. Perfect for when you need a little extra boost to get through your day.


Super Lemon Haze: A citrusy hybrid strain that is perfect for when you need to be productive but also want to enjoy a little bit of euphoria.


Maui Wowie: A classic sativa strain with tropical flavors that will help you feel uplifted and motivated throughout the day.

Prep the night before

Wake and bake can be a bit of a shock to the system if you're not used to it, so it's important to do some preparation the night before. This includes making sure you have all of your supplies ready to go, as well as preparing your body and mind for the experience.

Some things you can do to prep for a wake and bake before work include:


  • Grind your weed: having your weed already ground up will save you time in the morning and make it easier to roll a joint or pack a bowl.
  • Set out your supplies: make sure you have everything you need within reach, including a lighter, grinder, papers, etc.
  • Get some snacks ready: wake and bake can give you the munchies, so it's always a good idea to have some snacks on hand.
  • Drink some water: staying hydrated is important, especially if you're going to be smoking weed.
  • Stretch or do some light exercises: this will help get your blood flowing and wake you up a bit before you start smoking.
  • Breakfast: Have something that can be easily reheated. Cooking takes time, especially when you're baked.
  • Pack your stuff for work: not just your regular work clothes and stuff, but stuff like eye drops that you might need when you are baked.


Take it slow


One of the most important things to remember when wake and baking is to take it slow. If you're not used to smoking weed first thing in the morning, it can be easy to get too high, too fast. Start with a small amount of weed and take your time smoking it. You can always smoke more if you need to.


Stay hydrated and clean

As we mentioned before, it's important to stay hydrated when wake and baking. Drinking water will help to prevent dehydration, which can make you feel more anxious and paranoid. It's also a good idea to have some snacks on hand in case you start to feel hungry.


On the night before, fill up a big bottle of water and leave it on your nightstand. Get plenty of water into your system before and after you start smoking. There's also a good chance that you'll leave a scent after smoking. Take a shower and change into fresh clothes before you head off for work.


Have a plan A

Wake and bake can be a great time to get things done, but only if you have a plan. Working smartly and planning ahead can help you stay focused and motivated throughout the day. Before you start smoking, take a few minutes to think about what you need to do and how you're going to do it. Write them down on a list to remind yourself if you need to. Shuffle important meetings and tasks to another day. If you have anything important to do on your wake and bake day, move them towards the end of the day when you will be less baked. Wake and bake days are meant to be fun, slow, and chill. Stay away from things that can make you stress, become anxious, or panic.


Have a plan B

If you realize you really can't get to work, take a day off. Everyone has a plan until your CEO suddenly walks in and decides, out of the blue, to have a one-on-one catch-up with you in the middle of the day. Be prepared for all kinds of situations. Find a buddy at work who can look out for you in case you run into something sticky.
