    Douchbags cut weed, I have heard from water to windex and beyond. Who knows what he smoked. Again, my amounts are very high. In the beginning when my tolerance was low and I would laugh and eat like mad and was lazy. After you build a tolerance where you can function at almost a normal rate, you don't get the fog, you get focus. You don't get lazy, you get productive. And you don't get stupid, I do my job better now than before, and this is not my opinion. This is actual fact. I am almost always medicated, I wake in the middle of night in major discomfort and smoke 2 to fall asleep pain free. I do everything I did pre MJ the same now. Never tripped, never hallucinated, only smoked myself to sleep a few times.

    Let's be straight here. A good chunk of USA deficit is due in part by the waste of money spent targeting Marijuana. Before the USA got stupid, marijuana was grown world wide legally and on US soil. Between the US govt and it's tag team partner Oil companies, they have brainwashed generations into believing Weed is a gateway drug, an addictive drug blah blah blah. Fact of the matter is, it's a plant. One that can be used for quiet a few things, including medicine, fuel, clothing, paper, food, supplements etc. Netflix USA has some pretty mind blowing and uncovering documentaries. Sit down, hit one and watch them. You'll see a different light when you hear both sides!


    (ps. I touched it a couple times when younger, only really started in '08. Now it is my sole medication.)

  5. I've kind what to try this....however I get random-ed at work......and

Smoking is just so bad for a person on a physiological level ... which is why they should vape if anything. Then, then we are talking. I am very intrigued at some of the possible antibacterial and therapeutic benefits for asthmatic patients of marijuana. I myself have used it multiple times, many times at the onset of what would become a sinus infection, and have warded off sickness.

    Lastly, I almost always hallucinate on marijuana, and over half of what I've taken have been mids. I have no idea why I hallucinate... weird neuronal wiring, I guess?
    Do I think that marijuana is going to have the physiological impacts of other drugs like cocaine, meth, heroin etc.? Nah. What I will say and I don't think I need scientific evidence to prove it is that...

    Smoking puts tar in your lungs. That can't be good. Carbon Monoxide makes it where oxygen can't get to where it needs to go. That can't be good. Your body has to metabolize THC and use resources that could be better spent building muscle. That's just a bummer.

    I personally just dislike weed. Some people love it and I think that it definitely helps some people in a lot of ways. I would even argue that for a lot of people who like to smoke that it could potentially reduce cortisol levels in the blood which is a great thing.

    Agree, disagree, agree!

    Smoking cigs causes TAR on your lungs due to the amount of other additives to plane tobacco. As posted above. Proven 20 yr Study (USA) cig vs. Non. .marijuana does minimal damage effect , also lung function was top of the list.

    I get blood, Emt(heart) analysis and lung X-rays as well as a part of my doctor agreeing to sign my forms. X-rays always come back with. "Lookin good". Blood abviously better now than with Methotrexate, prednasone, Celebrex, naproxine, Lymfimidified, and some others for depression, heartburn anger. Heart rate I control with slow deep breathing sessions (in and out I the gym)

    So IMO and the opinion of my doctor. Marijuana is "harmless" to me, and only beneficial.


    And as for the cortisol, I say it does. I have quiet a few issues, some I have corrected and some I maintain with MJ (pain, anxiety, adhd,) depression and anger was healed by all the health progression naturally, the Gym and MJ.

    I agree with this but I'd also say that if you have sensitive lungs you should just use a vaporizer.. (which you don't, clearly, but others may)
    And on another untouched note, (I am pro-herb) the cilia in your throat is damaged by smoke, but they regenerate quickly. I believe it was between 1-2 Weeks before they are back to normal after a smoking break..
    Again fixed by a vaporizer.

    But yes I just got back from a brutal training session and one puff of the herb relaxes my nausea.

    I own and operate an Easy Vape. I would like a Volcano. Very effective. But I still smoke J's and eat. edibles being the best over time Body Pain relief, smoking and Vap being instant pain relief.

    My lungs are not sensitive, it is my doctors wishes to monitor. It is mainly because He doesnt know the effects of it on our body. My lung function is in great working order.


    I understand people KNOW smoking cigarettes causes damage it our lungs. And I understand the smoke and heat damages tissues. At the same time I know I am only smoking Ultra thin rice paper and dried marijuana. That is it. No added Tar, rat poision and sprays. I believe there is minimal damage being done, I am able to do more now than before. Playing Hockey was the best part, my lungs where great! I am confident in the study done on MJ and lungs.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  13. I read only a couple of post and noticed that everyone call marijuana a "drug". Well im not a historian but i believe marijuana was falsely accused of being a abused drug and here is a website if you was to read it about why it became illegal http://www.ozarkia.net/bill/pot/blunderof37.html . Off of my experience it wont kill someone to lay back and relax once in a while, i don't condone using marijuana for bad things but just look at all the good it does.

    P.S.- If you think marijuana is bad what do you think about alcohol and all the "good" it does to this world?

    never said alcohol was good. i'm against both. by the way, marijuana is psychoactive, making it a drug.

    not bashing your use of it, but i don't believe it goes well with lifting...

    totally off topic bro, but i really recommend the gw on pct!! it fixes your lipid profile, cuts you up nicely, and prevents muscle loss in my experience with it! never used it on cycle so i can't vouch for it like that but i'd imagine it'd best be saved for your most vulnerable moments.

    Yea know but if i asked the average person they would say weed is bad for you compared to alcohol and i dont really get why people say that. Oh and yea it has nothing to do with lifting but i read something a while back about creatine and marijuana but i dont remember what they said.

    It ****ing rocks dude. I can't do pre right now because of caffeine, but pre and MJ is a blast. I would power through **** with crisp form (focus from the weeeeeeed is intense for me)

    I would totally try it but depending on what kind i would probably fall asleep in the middle of an exercise but out of the gym no problem!

    For the record, relying on a historical essay composed by "BudFairy" might not be the best strategy.

    Alright! Hold up. We gotta stop the reggae music here in regards to the tar argument. Next time you light up a doobski just look at the roach. Bro. We can all agree that a roach looks like a burnt mouse turd. If that brown #%%$ isn't tar then it isn't tar. But it is definitely something and its definitely going into your lungs. All tar is, is any material (both tobacco and/or plant matter) that has been partially combusted and healed resulting in a stank ass resin. Compared to cigs, I definitely think that the green is much healthier because it isn't as processed as cigarette tobacco. It's like frozen peas and fresh peas. The fresh peas are straight up better.

    Heed my warning though. Without going into detail or anything, don't think for a second that MJ is as natural as many think. Farmers are now using GH and chemicals to get bigger crop yields. These farmers do not care about keeping it natural. The more buds they can make in a single crop, the more money they make. That means that a lot of the stuff people get is filled with growth chemicals and nasty stuff. I just know this. It's sad. But very very true.

    I would argue that you, unlike SO MANY Americans, are actually living a healthy life. You lift, you run, and you keep your body in check at all times. The sad case is that unlike you, who is removing this tar and bad #$%# on a daily basis through cardio, proper nutrition, and exercise, other individuals consider changing the channel or putting their hand in a bag of chips lifting. This would explain the thumbs up from your doctor. You are healthy with MJ. No problem there.

    It really does just work for some people. The potential negative effects of marijuana are far outweighed by the benefits in a lot of people. If you find that your quality of life is better then I really don't think anyone should shame anyone for making a decision that is in their best interest. I really do think that there is a lot of bias in the healthcare side of MJ. The roach bro. The roach says it all hahaha.

  22. just adding my two cents! I dont smoke because of personal choices and i dont care if someone does, cause to each his own. I just couldnt imagine the revenue the goverment could make through taxation of it! thats the reason why cigs are legal, the profit margain are so high for the govt! Why not legalize, give proper educational purposes and make whoever makes it follow govt regulations

  23. hey check out muscleprodigy.com they just posted about what your asking, some science to back it up. in short, marijuana only has negative effects on your hormones if you dont really smoke often and throw in a joint every now and then, if your a constant smoker then your hormones get used to the thc and it has no real negative effects on your body.
    hope this helps.

    Within a few minutes after smoking marijuana, the heart begins beating more rapidly and the blood pressure drops. Marijuana can cause the heart beat to increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute, and can increase even more if other drugs are used at the same time.Including pre workouts and fat burners.

    that's your big boogeyman?

    ECA increases your heart rate similarly. exercise in and of itself will cause this. hell today while i was on the eliptical for an hour and a half my heart rate stayed at 150 and even got up to 202 for a minute before i slowed down. the fact that the blood pressure DECREASES should tell you something. high blood pressure is infinitely more important than a high heart rate
    Just because it's natural does not mean it is fine and free of risk. That would be called the naturalistic fallacy

    Is it better for you than booze? Absolutely. But these RISKS are there

    First I will start with I smoke and eat, and i am not posting this to be impressive or gloat, i take this very seriously. My edibles can cripple an average toker due to my extremely high tolerance. I have a personal, professional grower and is top quality. I smoke anywhere from 20 to 50 joints a day and eat between 3 - 5 gluten and sugar free canna cookies daily. This mornin was my first day back to cardio in a long time. It was a medium pace and I lasted 2k. I was out of breath but not struggling.

    A study In early 2012. Marijuana vs. cigarette vs. non smoker. Lung function test came back MJ best, non second best, smoker worst. It probably has a minor effect, but that is all, IMO and in my case.

    Take it for what you will. I hit one before and after my workout

    As for brain function, i do my job this way, with no notice of co workers, no flaws, just quick productive days.

    Cheers

    Saw that study. The pot group was the winner.
    Knowledge is power- The power to do your part and make a difference.

  26. Didn't read every post just skimmed through the thread. I figured I'd post my input. I have read studies that are none government founded, that being the key term here, that state that cannabis actually promotes brain cell growth and has no effect on testosterone. I have never worked out the same day I smoked but I have worked out the day after and still had a good workout. I have a vaporizer I'm going to try soon. As far as weed making you lazy, I experience that too, it depends on the kind of weed. Indica makes you lazy, but Sativa acts as a stimulant. I LOOOOOVE sativa, not a big Indica fan but since I live on the East coast not a lot of people have sativa and if they do it cost more. Cannabis works for me so well I'd like to move and get it medically, I'm only worried about the evil ATF denying me my right to own guys if they find out I get medical marijuana though if I can get it. I don't smoke to get high, I smoke because when I have weed it's the only time I feel normal. I have severe bipolar, ADHD and Aspergers, so I am always depressed, I can never focus too long on something and my social skills are not the best, but cannabis seems to fix all that and nothing I have ever tried and I've been on a lot of pills since I was 9, nothing else I've tried has worked.
