Post workout Marijuana use?

HI-JACKING this thread, yes, but: to all you supplement companies running out of ideas as the government bans all the legit test boosters/PH's etc, why don't you guys come up with a REAL appetite suppressant (not thermogenic persay), but I would buy the stuff FOR LIFE if someone could formulate such a thing.
Yes, this is clearly coming after a hard night of "conscious munching", but the benefits of a little chronic to me outweigh the anxiety and other (personal) negatives that come from going without. Just a thought!
(or if anyone has any personal experience of what works, besides water/sleep, please do let me know). God bless ! and praise

I don't know. Being blazed really REALLY makes me chill but at the same time, I don't want to be very chill when I'm working out. I've tried it a couple times, just isn't the same. After working out is just fine, I'm already relaxing anyways. haha

I think the timing of the workout/blaze should be considered. We know that MJ raises your metabolism for some time after use, and personally (I can't back this up with any science) I don't think it's a good idea to smoke directly before bed. You may be able to consume more food, but do you think the upped intake counteracts the higher consumption of your body for the 8 hr fast its about to go into?

ive been smoking at least 1-3x a day since I was 13, i am 27 now. So for over half my life Ive been high, sh1t there wasnt one day in my sr year of high school I didnt smoke before going to school.
Smoking bud has never held me back from gaining size. A decent amount of my friends dont smoke weed (dont worry they do plently of other drugs) and I am just as big as all of them. I really do not feel smoking nug effects muscle growth what so ever.
as mentioned in page 3 or 4, a few studies will say/prove that smoking will reduce T and raise E but they are far and few between. All in all, there is nothing solid saying that there are negitive effects from smoking pot. (aside the issues that would come from smoking cigarettes or smoking anything)

F*** no I don't. I'll smoke and sleep for a week straight and won't remember my dreams. But when I stop, I get a crazy ass REM rebound and my dreams get very intense, emtionally charged, just crazy. This fades after a few days. IME it does do something to REM sleep.

I believe that when you go into REM sleep, which is the deepest sleep, that is when you dream and produce the greatest amount of GH. Also Its important to not have any kind of light or TV on when you sleep b/c, even w your eyes closed, light can pass thru ur eyelids and disrupt falling into a REM deep sleep.which can be good and bad. bad for your life since I believe that dreams help you process stuff. Might be good for GH though. Isnt non dreaming sleep when you produce the most?

It causes an unnessesary increase in Heart Rate resting typically > 100 bpm tracarydia. Min ventilation increases dramatically. Breathing frequency is also increased. you may not see short term problems, but if contined in an extended period of time will result in decrease in maximal exertion during a heavy lift typically greater than 80% of 1rm

I distinctly remember reading a study proving this but I cant find it now and it was years ago that I did read this (didnt stop me from "falling off the wagon" from time to time though)
I must say though I am never as healthy, fit and in my right mind smoking as when im not and completely clean. the 2 just dont go hand in hand imo no matter how little its negatively effecting you it IS negatively effecting you.
Dont get me wrong i think there can be some benefits to the herb but they have yet to refine it to the point of achieving only benefits and leaving out the bad.
JMO if your serious about your health and BBing then I would omit using any drugs other then steroids and not drink any alcohol other then whats used as a solvent for your SERMS....

I smoke every night a few hours before sleep. It hasn't had any negative influences yet, but lately i've been wondering how big i would be if i didn't smoke...

I know that marijuana has been shown to impair you motor skills and reaction times because of the effects it had on your brain. If something like marijuana can affect the electrochemical reactions happening in your brain what's to keep it from affecting the rest of your CNS as well? A problem with your CNS can definitely impact your muscular development. If it works for you then it works I'm not arguing with that.

A friend of mine used to blaze 24/7. He was high/sober all the time. He said his lifts were good because he couldn't feel the burn so he could squeeze out that extra rep or two. His appetite was also boosted, and it helped him sleep well. He had other things going for him, but he got ****ing huge without any PHs.
Ive been using it for appetite and sleep, but I know that it eventually leads to insomnia. But right now, Im getting good quality sleep of 8-9 hours, so I think thats a huge benefit because I normally only sleep 7 hours.
