    heres a good article about it.

    http://www.illpumpyouup.com/articles...dybuilding.htm


    personally, i have never noticed a difference, and id consider myself a somewhat moderate smoker. im not saying it DOESNT increase estrogen levels, but i am still having nice gains even while using it. as long as it doesnt make you lazy and knock you off schedule then i say go for it. im probably going to get bashed for this but hey even some of the top BBers chief it up! (take arnie for example). hope this helps any

    I have a vaporizer and use it once in a blue moon. Pot isn't that bad for you if you eliminate most airborne toxins and limit your intake habits. If it's a once or twice a week, couple hits of the vape deal... you'll be fine... I'm not a doctor, but much of my educational background is in psychopharmacology.

    I think there's a lot of BS in that article. Here's something a little more recent: Good news for pot smokers

    Dude, if you think about getting ***** tits every time you smoke pot, why hit the hookah? If you think that you'll end up with milky breasts, most likely you will. I'm serious. Either enjoy a little weed every now and then, or stay sober. Just don't preach the 'weed causes ***** tits claim' to the righteous who enjoy blazing trees every now and again.

    my brother is a total pothead. he lives in austin and smokes the dankest of the dank weed everyday. he is stoned from when he wakes up to when he goes to sleep. basically being stoned for him is being sober. anyway he began to worry about his titties because he started getting fat in areas the way a woman would. like in his thighs and chest. he started doing research and found that weed can do this. so there you have one case that might support the ***** tits theory. they werent ***** tits but just fatty tits.

    The studies showing lower test higher estrogen were mostly megadosed animal studies. You should be fine unless you're eating a few pounds a day.

    I use to smoke down almost every day a few years ago. If it hindered gains due to increased estrogen, it was negligible.

    I saw the Iowa study they are talking about. You are much better off smoking a joint than drinking a beer no matter how you look at it. Also from my experience, there is nothing better for the joints than mary-jane.

    All said though, sucking down copious amounts of MJ smoke isn't a great idea. Hence, brownies.

    truth is that smoking affects each person differently. my workout partner smokes more than i do and has had no increase in estrogen levels or development of gyno. BUT it has raised them for myself. i did begin to develop gyno and saw a doc about it. if cleaned my system for the last two months and have seen results with the decrease of my estrogen levels. if u can smoke and have no affects more power too you and blaze it up. i know i miss it. ha. hope this helps.....

    I used to smoke probally a 1oz a week of some blueberry kush.
    I noticed that my strenght and size when up like crazy but then when other stuff came into town that gave you a totally diffent high i start reacting diffrently to it. I start gettting more fat around my nips my bf was increasing i started getting lazy and didnt push my self at all in the gym which i hated. i noticed that like supplements out thier thier they give diffrent people diffrent results and diffrent reactions. also same thing for weed so make sure you choose wisely.
