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

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.

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

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.

Just because it's natural does not mean it is fine and free of risk. That would be called the naturalistic fallacyOriginally Posted by soontobbeast
Is it better for you than booze? Absolutely. But these RISKS are there

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.

Just for argument sake. Formation happens when young and until early 20's. The post is regarding working out and toking. I do not support developing minds smoking weed. I can say I know a VP of a large company that has toked since 13 steady and makes mid 6 fig. So it CAN harm development, but I don't think it is always the case.Originally Posted by scherbs

This thing is still going on?I thought the tokers would be more chill about the issue.Anywhos...There's enough pull from both sides to steer me away.Some people say it helps in every way and then you have the extreme who say weed is evil.I say,with the lack of studies geared twords working out you will be our test subjects.There is a seeming endless ammount of studies on Marijuana but alot of them are ran by bias partys.I just can't justify putting something like that in my body.
Although there are plenty of people who do alot worse.Guys in my local gym seem to have a nose tork fetish.When they feel like they can't go anymore after a 2 hour long session they open the bottle and snort it like no other and go back to lifting.Stupid haha.
People also use cocain as a workout aid.
I use steroids which has health risk aswell.I've also used clen,ephedrine and enough pills to kill a mule.(was a supplement freak at one time no more though)
Hell some even work out completely drunk!If you can go home at night saying"I had a good work out and I'm making alot of gains.What I'm doing is working!" then you just keep on.At the end of the day thats what matters.
If you're looking for a "go ahead,hop on the canna-bus" nobody here can make that decision for you.

Well there's a line.....and ON THIS SIDE OF IT.......WE SMOKE POT!
Mak'n all KINZZZZZZZZZZZ of gains. ALL KINDS!
My friend uses cocaine. I tell him....F-THAT! I'm on a better drug.....STEEEEEEEE-ROIDS! ha ha ha

Pretty much. Saw a dude snorting lines and got kicked out. Silly coke heads. You can eat it and get the same effect. Just like pot hahaOriginally Posted by epstaneman

The only bad side effect I've experienced with cannabis is increased sex drive(to the point where its annoying because I'll start staring at women and it's blatantly obvious I'm staring lol) and increased hunger, but the hunger increase isn't too bad, if I know I got all my calories I can ignore the hunger.
09-03-2012, 07:55 AM
Can't forget about the side effect that gets me the most. Feeling really focking awesome! I set a PR nearly every time I step into the gym now. I take one quick puff as leaving for the gym. Not much but enough to give me that rush and for me focus. That mixed with alphamine is in a league of its own!Originally Posted by DerickVonD
