Marijuana and Bodybuilding

  1. I agree with everyone on here that a lil weed every once in a while, or even in small amounts daily doesnt cause any problems. I personally do it everynight almost, just to relax after a hard workout and to help increase the appetite. Smoke on all my fellow friends! LOL

    Current research shows your lungs will recover from years of cigarette smoke in as little as 5-6 months. I can't imagine this being worse for MJ

    Not enough evidence to support this, plus as another poster has said the neuroprotective properties of MJ are beginning to actually be researched.

    A lot more than you would think.

    Personally I smoke every now and again.

    Compare the negative effects of MJ to the negative effects of alcohol, yet no one thinks twice about that. Hell, its common that a college student will drink 2-3 times every week.

    Dude, if licking frogs would get someone high, there would be people out trying it without researching it... Wait a minute, people already have tried that!

    Oh... not to mention baking banana peels and trying to extract 'bananadine' with ethyl alcohol in an attempt to make banana-crack in which to smoke and get high. Bro people rarely care about the side effects man. Stop comparing things to alcohol. It's really getting old and just because it's legal, it shouldn't be a fall-back comparison for every known psychotropic substance on Earth.

    If you're going to recreationally use a substance to induce a 'higher' state of mind, by all means go about it in a way that is condusive to your health and well-being. It's actually quite simple not to beat around the bush...

    ex. "Oh I snort a couple rails of snow every now and then... uhhh but HEY, you know that statistics show that alcohol has been known to cause fetal alcohol syndrome? Coke can't do that!"

    Don't justify your habits or behaviors. It lowers your integrity.
    Freedom means nothing here.

    That's *alcohol*, bro - time for more research?

    I don't need any lessons in integrity, thank you.

    I'm not a habitual "every night" smoker - nor do I feel the need to defend any choices I make in my life to anyone else.

    I'm just saying that ripping on people who smoke weed every now and again because of its "harmful" effects while tolerating and participating in more detrimental activities makes a person a hypocrite.

    I'd say cycling is far worse for you than recreational marijuana use, even when used responsibly

    The integrity comment wasn't directed at you persay, but just some food for thought to those who constantly try and justify some crappy habits.

    I don't care what anybody says... chronic use of the herb f*cks you up

    now if you take a few rips every once in a while to chill and relax, your not going to have any probs... but using that garbage everyday is going to hinder just about any goals you have

    I smoked for like 3 years straight in highschool just about everyday and i when i finally quit it was like night and day in regards to the way i felt, mental clarity, motivation... everything

    I doubt that there are to many chronic everyday users here on a bodybuilding forum, but to all the pple that use everyday and come up with all this garbage about how it doesn't effect health/mental status ect... it is because you have an addiction! and with every addiction comes the need to justify that addiction!

    lol sh*t that was me 4-5 years ago, weed was the best thing in the world and i was gonna smoke it till i was 100 years old... but then i grew up

    like i said theres no prob. blazin every once in a while to relax and enjoy some good food, but don't kid yourselves and think doin it everyday doesn't have any negative effects!
    You also have to take in consideration you did this in highschool...your attention span and motivation to do anything besides have fun are not as controlled at a more mature age. I have disciplined my smoking and exercise habits much more since high school..

  10. you all need to get a VapoCannon and chill the **** out.

    Why Vaporize?

    Studies have shown that it is possible to actively vaporize component ingredients by heating botanicals to a temperature short of the point of combustion, thereby eliminating or substantially reducing harmful smoke toxins that are normally present in botanical smoke. The vaporizer produces active vapor at a temperature of 360°F - 380°F. while eliminating many toxins, examples such as - benzene, a known carcinogen, plus toluene and naphthalene. Carbon monoxide and smoke tars are both qualitatively reduced by the vaporizer, but additional testing is needed to quantify the extent of the decrease.

    There is good reason to believe that the highly carcinogenic tars known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are thought to be a leading culprit in smoking-related cancers, are suppressed, since they normally form at much higher temperatures of combustion.


  12. wouldnt using marijuana actually be a good thing

    once in a while
    you just light up a joint or hit the bong

    the munchies would help you eat anyway (provided what you eat isnt junk)

I dont like feeling like a vegetable. Also try using clear rolling papers, they are made out of vegetable oils i think. They taste a lot better than traditional blunts or rolling papers. They also make a lot less smoke. Smoking after a workout is a great idea imo. It relaxes you and makes you want to eat more. When I get a little high i feel an increase in libido, but when i get completely baked i just feel like not moving.
    bro those plastic papes are a big no no in the smoking world. it lets off black smoke for god sake..

    Vaping is not the same, plain and simple. I used to smoke some (ok a ****ton actually) and I never enjoyed vaping really. It works somewhat, but you do not get all the same chemicals as you do smoking it- which is why vaporizer leftovers can be used to make brownies.

    There's just nothing like the feeling of smoking a joint... much more relaxing, even if less healthy and efficient. Also the clear papers are cellulose, not plastic, but I would still not use them.

    Weed is a vasodilator, especially good fun before a hard bike ride.

    I don't smoke up these days but I still wholly endorse it as a social activity. It's cheaper, healthier, and more fun than drinking, and depending where you live legal consequences are unlikely if you are not stupid about it. I've never had any discernable negative health effects (cough or otherwise) from it, don't regret it a bit, and wish I could still do it (current job tests).

  19. I love the mj, i'll be the first to buy marlboro greens

    But all of you say a huff and puff a lil now and then is fine and i totally agree, i do the same actually, except a huff might be a blunt and a puff might be a few bowls....but for those who say its ok taking 1 hit or two or day....

    what about when u do that for a month or 3 months straight? your tolerance will go up and you will need to take 4x or 5x more than you did when u started to get a feel? thats what i went through and it takes alot for me to get high now....which i dont have a problem with but others might

    That bike ride would end short with me at the first site of food.

    nah he's just an anti-bud guy. blazing actually INCREASES test/LH for about 30min. after initially hitting whatever your fav thing is to use. hence the libido increase. well this is also due to increased dopamine and serotonin levels, but it increases test for a short period of time. if you blaze all day, everyday for years, then yea it can effect your hormones in a negative manner. this is still minimal though. with that being said, blaze on bro's..... blaze on

    I agree. I used to own a vaporizer and before that I smoked at least two bowls a day. You get high with the vape but you're not...HIGH. Pretty much,if you enjoy something then do it,just don't over use it and be smart. All I know is that if you're going to do something then smoking is the least harmful. I don't smoke anymore but I'm not opposed to it at all.

  23. haha some funny shhit in this thread, yeah i got a vaporizer which i use a vapezilla to be exact and i only ever use it at night and not all the time. i used it on my first cycle which was epi and managed to gain 18lbs on it.

    does anyone get wicked pumps after they've smoked. when you've trained and mull up couple hours later every muscle is just so pumped its awesome

    ps any critics of vaping either have crap bud or have not used a good vape that does the job properly. they work and work very well

  24. All I know is:
    The boys from Oklahoma roll their joints all wrong, too dam skinny, and way too long. I aint a holy roller, so I'll just use a bong
