i think it does i remeber seeing some study about it when i had to do a report for school... however i don;t think it raises the levels to nething significant.. especially if your on juice

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

I try to stay away from alcohol completly while on cycle to save my liver....I know the weed thing comes up a lot but was currious specifically about the est levels...but I agree it's probably a nominal amount if it raises them at all..It helps my apetite...

weed actually lowers your test levels.do some research

I've heard it the other way around...Anti E

in arnold's encyclopedia he tells u to smoke it to help u eat. I'll listen to arnold, u guys listen to science. Arnold could kick any scientists ass.
