Forgo The Wake And Bake — And 4 Other Cannabis Productivity Hacks

Here are a few tips for anyone interested in boosting their productivity while maintaining  a regular cannabis habit.

I recently had to stop smoking weed to go on an Ayahuasca ceremony a week or so back. While I’m not a hardcore “stoner” anymore, I have been smoking cannabis consistently for years now. If I was thrown in front of a judge in a drug court, they’d probably say I have “marijuana use disorder” or something of  the sorts due to my frequency of consumption, but during that week I realized that, “no, I’m not addicted to cannabis”.

Sure, I enjoy smoking cannabis frequently, but when it came to stopping for a week, I really didn’t have an issue. It didn’t negatively affect my sleep or mood, nor my appetite. I guess, I am one of the fortunate ones who can consume cannabis without getting addicted.

However, with my week of abstinence I discovered a few things in relation to my own productivity. One thing that I am continuing these days that has helped me achieve a significant amount more in my day to day activities.

Today, I’m going to be sharing a few productivity hacks for the productive cannabis consumers out there.

While I don’t smoke a lot of pot these days — at least when comparing to how I used to smoke — the Wake-n-Bake has been a staple for me for many years. I enjoy waking up in the morning, getting some coffee, meditating and maybe doing some breath work before toking up. Sure, that’s not technically a wake-n-bake, but considering that I wake up at 5:30 a.m. every day, I’m toking up by 6:30.


Lately, however, my need for morning tokes have waned because of the breath work and meditation and with the recent venture into the Ayhuasca ceremony, it allowed me to reassess my relationship with cannabis.

For the week leading up to the ceremony, I was to abstain from several things — one being smoking marijuana. This, as I had mentioned earlier, did not cause me any significant discomfort. It was simply a decision, “okay, don’t smoke weed” and my body and mind followed suit.

While I was focusing on the ceremony over the weekend, I realized that there was a lot of things “pending” that had to be completed and being the “sober” version of myself, I got to it.

The entire week, I felt that I was more productive — maybe a little more stressed, but more productive overall.
