5 Best Strains For An Awesome Wake And Bake Experience


Wake and Bake is an awesome thing, but if you don’t use the right strain this can end up disastrous. There are only a few things you need to have an amazing wake and bake session every time, but a good strain is critical to the experience.



We’ve compiled some of the best energizing, uplifting, and creativity-boosting strains on this list to help you start your day on the best high possible. There clearly aren’t going to be any indicas on this list, because wake and bake isn’t supposed to end up in a couch lock. These strains will go well with your cup of joe, breakfast, and you’re ready to go:



Green Crack is no doubt one of the most famous sativas in the market. It’s so popular that it’s easy to find Green Crack in almost any dispensary across the country. Users love it for wake and bake sessions because it delivers an invigorating, energizing high and laser-sharp mental focus. This strain definitely won’t put you on a couch lock; in fact it will do the opposite. Green Crack is also delicious to smoke – it has a tropical, mango-like taste that will make you feel like you’ve dipped into a bowl of fresh fruit. This strain is also helpful in treating fatigue, stress, pain, and depression.



Jack Herer is just as legendary as its namesake, the famous cannabis activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. Jack Herer is perfect for a wake and bake session because it delivers a clear-headed, creative, and blissful high. This delicious pine-scented and piney sativa has been the recipient of numerous awards for being a top-quality strain, and a potent one at that. Jack Herer will stimulate your mind in the same way that a cup of coffee does while promoting gentle focus and creativity. Jack Herer is also useful for treating stress, fatigue, depression, pain, and lack of appetite – so be sure to have a good breakfast before or after you medicate with this strain.



Maui Wowie is a classic strain that dates back to the 1960’s. Back then, this was one of the most potent sativas around, a reputation that still holds true today. Maui Wowie will send your mind soaring to great heights, making it ideal for anyone who engages in creative work. A few puffs of Maui Wowie will stimulate your imagination while perking you up at the same time. Smoking Maui Wowie will make you feel like you’re in some tropical island thanks to its sweet tropical flavors, mind-bending effects, and stress-relieving properties. Users also love this strain for delivering a positive, meditative, and happy buzz; highly recommended if you have a spiritual practice in the morning that you enjoy such as meditation or yoga.



Pineapple Express is a well-balanced hybrid that’s energizing enough but not as potent as the other sativas. Being a hybrid, Pineapple Express has some indica properties that will ease you into a nice sense of physical and mental relaxation. This strain is ideal to use before breakfast since it will likely give you the munchies. Pineapple Express is true to its name – tropical and fruity, with hints of pineapples, cedar, and pine. Smoking this strain on your next wake and bake session will deliver many of the well-loved effects of an excellent hybrid; you’ll be relaxed but it’s also uplifting and energetic. If you don’t have a busy morning a head but need some gentle invigoration and a good buzz, this is the strain for you. Pineapple Express is also beneficial in treating headaches, depression, pain, and stress.




Golden Goat is another great hybrid for wake and bake sessions. Golden Goat has a deliciously complex aroma with hints of sourness, spice, sweetness, and tropical fruit. Because of its distinct lineage, Golden Goat is one of the most sought-after cannabis strains, so if you come across this in a dispensary, make it a point to take some home. Users love Golden Goat for delivering a strong mellow feeling that lasts for up to two hours, while giving you a clearer thought process. However, this hybrid tends to relax the body, but it’s widely used for those in creative fields who are looking for some inspiration.
