Tips to for a Successful Wake & Bake



Ah, the coveted “wake and bake.” With the passing of Amendment 64, 420 lodging is more prevalent than ever and Bud+Breakfast is proud to be pioneering marijuana hotels in a compliant and revolutionary fashion.


Many consider waking and baking to be a ritual to get the day going out on the right foot. However, there are definitely some guidelines to follow to ensure you’re maximizing your day and not slumping back into the couch. Let’s take a look at how to seize a wake and bake like a champ.


  1. Pick the right strain


A wake and bake should be like your morning coffee—part of your routine that helps jump starts the day. Choosing the wrong strain can make you retreat back to bed and waste precious hours of your morning (and who wants to fall into the “stoner” stereotype?). Choose a nice clear-headed sativa like Sour Diesel or Blue Dream that makes you focus and gives you a nice boost of energy. Make sure to ask our staff for recommendations and if a particular strain might not be ideal for the a.m. and in the meantime, you can check out this list perfect for your first 420 lodging strain suggestions.


2.) Give yourself time


Don’t become hazy and lose your ability to manage time. Make sure you skip the snooze button to give yourself ample time to get ready, walk the dog, take a shower, and more. Part of reason people partake in this morning ritual is to take their time and ease into the day. The last thing you want to do is rush around when you’re high and not have time to enjoy breakfast and a nice cup of coffee.


3.) Remember the most important meal of the day


If you’re going to wake and bake, don’t forget to eat! Breakfast actually makes the high more prolonged and will make you feel energized. Consider eating healthy power foods that will help you tackle the day’s to-do list and jump-start a productivity. 420 hotels like Bud + Breakfast offer fresh meals daily starting at 8:00 with inspired cuisine prepared by our in-house marijuana friendly hotel chefs.


4.) Don’t be an amateur


We mean this in the nicest of ways—whether you’re on vacation at a bud and breakfast or going into the office, you want to make sure you’ve alleviated any side effects that come from smoking so that you can respect yourself, your surroundings, and the laws in place to enjoy marijuana legally and responsibly. Don’t smoke in clothes you intend on leaving the house with. Make sure to use eye drops if you need them, give yourself a spritz of perfume or cologne, and brush your teeth. The last thing you want is for a co-worker or patron on the bus to call you out for smelling like marijuana.


5.) Prepare for the rest of the day


We don’t want to sound condescending, but after a solid wake and bake, you might want to double check that you have your standard “phone, keys, and wallet” before leaving for the day as well as any other essentials before returning. Make sure you are stocked with a water bottle to stay hydrated and avoid dry mouth. Although staying high may be tempting, make sure you are conquering your to-do list before you toke up again. You should think of waking and baking as the first steps of a marathon and not a sprint to blaze all day.
