I'm pretty curious about this and don't know if this has been brought up before,but is it still possible to use cannabis moderately,and still have a great physique?I know thatit's not really relative or conducive to the bodybuilding lifestyle,but there are some people who i have heard say that they are moderate users and it doesn't really get in the way of putting on mass for them.

only thing i ever recall hearing about it was that it would raise cortisol levels.but don't quote me on that.I don't think moderate use would be bad.it relaxes you and stimulates appietie.i'll bump it so maybe someone with more knowledge on the subject can assit you.

As you say it would not be recomended but yeah it can be done. There was a fellah one of my mates used to train with who used to only train stoned and I have done it a few times in the past. It does have a few negativities associtaed with it though - those being - lazyness can creep in when you are smoking dope therefor not training also stress can be a factor as dope can raise depression and stress which is conterproductive to growth. The tobacco that you use to mix it with - (if you do in your country as some countries have it straight) also will stun yur growth although you will be smoking alot less of it as opposed to a regular smoker.

i wouldn't recommend training stoned, as a matter of fact, you're asking to get hurt!

mixed with tobacco? never heard of that...i used to smoke alot of weed and i just went to the gym and ended up sitting in the hob tub. haha if your committed to a healthy life style then why consider it? it messes with your hormones and can produce alot more estrogen. so i dont think its a good idea...

I didn't mean training stoned,but just for sometime after the workout to chill a little.I usually get my workouts and eating and such out of the way first thing in the morning.I would never smoke during the day and just sit around without getting everything i need to get done first.

Smoking weed has its advantages and disadvantages.I used to trian before and smoke 4-5joints a day.The only thing to take the edge off.When I was smoking it I found that your intensity levels were nowhere near to the point when you dont smoke it after a few days.The only advantage was at night time were you need something to relax you and put you in a dark sleep which is a good thing.My advise would be not to smoke it before your workout.Only smoke it half hour before you go to bed.Another things about weed it forms into crystals in your body over a period of long term use and then wala you now are going down the road to a nice set of bitch tits,
