Does marijuana seriously hinder muscle growth??....I've heard that it raises estrogen levels but by enough to affect your body in that way???
heres a good article about it.
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
Man thnak you so much for that article....Seriously....That really changes the way I think about weed...Espically that lung cancer part...shheez....It makes me shutter to think how much I';ve smoked over the years
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.
yeah np man good luck!
good article, but doesnt say anything about estrogen levels raising/lowering
haha dude all i was saying was that didnt really answer bishops question. i smoke often and i was just tryin to help em out.
LOL funny bro.
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.
increases metabolism and grows boobies?
I use to smoke down almost every day a few years ago. If it hindered gains due to increased estrogen, it was negligible.
i use to some loads and found the very good quility skunk increased
my strengh a fair bit, but at the time i use to smoke every day all day long i never put on a single gram in weight, i think a joint now and again is fine, i aint soked a joint for months i might go to the coffee shop for a smoke or to buy some every now and again its just a dam shame that steroids aret legal to
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.
