    it all depends on how committed you are. As eye_candy said in moderation it is ok. I use it in more than moderation though and never had problems

    Let's put it this way.


    If your name happens to be Snoop Dogg, don't plan on winning any BB competitions soon.

    Marijuana does NOT lower testosterone levels . That is the biggest government lie ever told.... here's a study from the University of Iowa Medical School:

    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

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

    Weed

    Moderatrion. don't overdo it. A splif or some bonhs hits once or twice a week is what I'd try and keep it to. Personally I gotta relax sometimes myself. More of a night time-right before bed drug, as when I smoke nowadays, I wanna go to sleep like an hour later.

    BenchPressKing,

    I'm glad you jumped on this one. Besides there are thousands of substances that can lower testosterone - even common food/drinks.

    The whole reason marijuana is illegal, if because it is more profitable that way (for non-hemp industry, government....). It has nothing to do with the health of the user - this is seen in almost every legal prescription drug, alcohol, cigarettes and on and on - they're all legal and potentially deadly.

    The drug companies shit there pants over common plants that people can effectively use for this or that. They launch "smear campaigns" on herbal medicines or lobby against them. Also, keep in mind, there is no money in cures.

    Hey if u want to be able to down that last chicken breast a couple of tokes will give u the munchies to accomplish that. I would just say moderation but if you are really worried about it and you do not depend on it why even do it save your money for gear. ~Peace
