The Science Behind The ‘Wake And Bake’

It’s not your morning cup of coffee, but for some people it does the trick.

The practice of consuming cannabis upon waking – colloquially known as the “wake and bake” – is a staple for many. According to the 2017 Global Drug Survey of almost 70,000 cannabis consumers, 15% of Canadians enjoy their bud within an hour of waking. It’s even higher in the U.S. at 20%, followed closely by Mexico and Greece.
