If you’ve ever consumed marijuana in the morning, you may have found yourself wondering about the science behind a wake and bake.

It always seems to happen this way. The alarm clock goes off early in the morning to remind you there is a job and an evil boss out there eagerly waiting to make your life a living hell. You scream out something like, “Just one more hour of sleep!” before rolling over to hit the snooze. But then you see it—a fully loaded bowl of your favorite strain.

So, before anything else you reach for the smoking device waiting patiently on the nightstand for you to engage in the most sacred of morning rituals: the wake and bake. All of sudden, that desperate outlook on the day has somehow been transformed. The thought of getting out of bed and even putting on pants seems a little less doom and gloom than it was 30 seconds before. Marijuana has made the day more palatable.

For some, catching a head full of THC is just as much a part of wiping the cobwebs from the brain than several cups of coffee. But what is it about a wake and bake that has the ability to pull a person out of the morning funk and give them the strength to hit the ground running?
