    Arrow Smoking Pot and AAS/PH use?


    Ever since I started in with AAS and PH use, I cut 99% of alcohol use at all times. I do smoke a little pot once in awhile.
    Are there any adverse affects of Pot Smoking and the use of anabolics? izza:

    Smokin' pot will not hurt you during cycle or any other time. Smoking isn't good for anyone but Marajuana won't do
    1 /10000th the damage alcohol would while on cycle or off. No comparison. I've read a few cats that have had to smoke a J to get their appetite up while on Superdrol. Eating is very important.

    I think smoking anything might be a bad idea while on any compound that would decrease red blood cell count, beause I'd want all the oxygen I could get for all that heavy lifting; But I'm the cautious type.

    Its been documented that marijuana raises estrogen levels. There are studies floating around look it up yourself. Combining something that increases estro levels w/ a type of aas that does aromatize could lead to higher levels of estrogen and also gyno. It doesnt mean it is going to happen to everyone but its possible. I stay away from it for those reasons and many others.

    Are there any adverse affects of Pot Smoking and the use of anabolics? izza:
    Eating it is always better - you wont get all that tar and carcinogens fkn with your lungs - and from personal experience gives you greater munchies.

    Cannot comment on the effects on AAS though.

    I love how emotional pot users get when you say anything about marijuana. I smoked for 6 years and dont see anything to defend.

    I've been hearing about those studies for over a decade, supposedly raised estrogen is why pot smokers are less inclined towards physical aggression. If you asked me I'd say being sluggish, burned out and hungry has a lot more to do with it though. I view pot like I do soy and booze: IF it's estrogenic it's certainly not potent enough to give you issues within reasonable use. I wouldn't be afraid of a few beers or a glass of soy milk, but I don't drink alcohol often, don't use soy protein powders/shakes, and I don't smoke-out 12hrs a day every day like I used to as a kid, heh. Even on cycle I wouldn't be afraid of a joint or bowl because of estrogen. If you're seriously juicing (not just popping some weak otc 'designer') chances are you've got loads of estrogen floating around to the point where anything subtle like pot is merely adding a drop of water to a bucket. And if you're taking a Rx anti estrogen potent enough to control estrogenic sides from steroids, I'm sure they can handle the tiny spike a single smoke session may or may not cause. I do agree with you on principle though, If I'm serious enough about my athletic performance to juice, I'm not going to be smoking anything, for endurance's sake if nothing else.

    I have been smoking daily for my cycle. It's like steroids for my appetite; i'm up 17 pounds in 13 days.

    I would have legitimate problems eating enough calories to properly bulk at my weight without weed.

    I've never had estrogen related problems from this, but I know from people on this board that some people do. Everyone's biochemistry is a little different.

    It's pretty clear that marijuana affects estrogen levels in a negative way relative towards building muscle. If you are looking for studies just go to google and you will pull up a bunch of information. Of course quite a few of the sites/sources will be related to anti-addiction efforts. I suspect that for pot-heads anything that comes from a source espousing sobriety will automatically be suspect, so take it as you will.

    Aside from the affects of marijuana on oneís hormone levels, the simple fact is that smoking it will reduce the efficiency of your lungs ability to get oxygen into the blood stream, albeit less than smoking tobacco would.

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with smoking-out even though I donít. It just makes little since to me to do something that does not help and could hurt muscle growth when on the sauce. When I cycle, everything I do is about maximizing the gains.

    Actually, marijuana INCREASES the bodies uptake of O2. Pot is a potent vaso-dilator and induces tachycardia. So it elevates the bodies metabolism as well as its O2 uptake...thereby increasing the bodies ability to perform at a high level. Make no mistake marihuana is a performance-ENHANCING drug.

    Looks like you can find a study that supports both arguments.

    This is straight from one of the articles "The results showed that MSC induced the antiestrogenic effect via the ER-mediated pathway, while THC, CBD, and CBN did not have any antiestrogenic activity. This suggests that the combined effects of the marijuana smoke components are responsible for the antiestrogenicity of marijuana use."

    Personally, I smoke daily on and off cycle and see no estrogenic sides at all. Some times I smoke right before going to the gym and have just as good if not better workouts than when I don't.

    Thanks Heat Miser. Like I said my part was just rhetoric, but I did do a search. In addition to what you posted I came up with this. It's dated '83 so...

    Marijuana: interaction with the estrogen receptor
    MA Sauer, SM Rifka, RL Hawks, GB Cutler and DL Loriaux


    Crude marijuana extract competed with estradiol for binding to the estrogen receptor of rat uterine cytosol. Condensed marijuana smoke also competed with estradiol for its receptor. Pure delta 9- tetrahydrocannabinol, however, did not interact with the estrogen receptor. Ten delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol metabolites also failed to compete with estradiol for its receptor. Of several other common cannabinoids tested, only cannabidiol showed any estrogen receptor binding. This was evident only at very high concentrations of cannabidiol. Apigenin, the aglycone of a flavinoid phytoestrogen found in cannabis, displayed high affinity for the estrogen receptor. To assess the biological significance of these receptor data, estrogen activity was measured in vivo with the uterine growth bioassay, using immature rats. Cannabis extract in large doses exhibited neither estrogenic nor antiestrogenic effects. Thus, although estrogen receptor binding activity was observed in crude marijuana extract, marijuana smoke condensate and several known components of cannabis, direct estrogenic activity of cannabis extract could not be demonstrated in vivo.

    Volume 224, Issue 2, pp. 404-407, 02/01/1983
    Copyright © 1983 by American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics


    The data suggests that cannabinoids disrupt the endocrine system, but whether they are estrogenic or not is not conclusive.
    I just gave it all a cursory read, but that's what I took away from it.

    Same here. Helps me eat the calories I need to gain weight. Never had problems gaining strength or size on cycle. I also haven't had any gyno issues. Maybe if your prone though. Cheers!

    Effects of chronic marijuana use on testosterone, luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin and cortisol in men and women.

    Block RI, Farinpour R, Schlechte JA.

    Department of Anesthesia, College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City 52242.

    To investigate possible effects of chronic marijuana use on reproductive and stress hormones, we assayed testosterone, luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin, and cortisol in 93 men and 56 women with a mean (+/- S.E.) age of 23.5 +/- 0.4 years. Hormone values were compared among groups of subjects stratified according to frequency of marijuana use (frequent, moderate and infrequent; N = 27, 18, and 30, respectively) and non-using controls (N = 74). Chronic marijuana use showed no significant effect on hormone concentrations in either men or women.




    Serum testosterone concentrations in cannabis and opiate users

    [Article in German]

    Friedrich G, Nepita W, Andre T.

    Institut fur Rechtsmedizin, Universitat Freiburg.

    The object of this study was to establish possible influences of long-term cannabis usage on plasma testosterone levels. The plasma testosterone levels of 66 male Pakistani who for years had smoked cannabis daily or drank cannabis regularly where measured after chronic and acute intake of the drug and compared with a material of 41 normal controls, i.e. persons who did not use cannabis. An evaluation of the results showed that there were no significant differences between the two groups. No influence of long-term cannabis usage on plasma testosterone levels was found. Furthermore we wished to find out wether long-term heroin abuse showed an effect on plasma testosterone levels. The concentrations of testosterone in the plasma of 102 heroin addicts assigned to a Methadone Program were measured and compared with the values of 29 male healthy students as controls. Plasma testosterone levels were found to be significantly decreased in heroin addicts as compared to controls.


    When I work out all the time I'm very aggressive and on edge. Weed kind of just levels me out. I don't drink so weed is my way of chilling.

    i smoke pretty much daily, on and off cycle. i have smoked before i work out before and i feel like i have a good work out but i think it is just because when your high everything you experience is more intense haha. i usually smoke post work out, so i can much out.
    iv never had any gyno period and iv got many cycles under my belt, all while i was smoking regularly.

    toke it up boys!!!
