When I first started training, I hit bongs like a champ....Never gained a pound. I haven't touched the stuff in 2.5 years. Since I quit burning, I've gained 70lbs!!!(no increase in bf)

IMO your gains will be bigger and better if you don't smoke up!

Marijuana increases Estrogen production. That's fine if you're a chick, but unless you want man-boobs, you should stay away from it. Also, estrogen hinders muscle production, which is BAD (Hence the popular anti-estrogen supplements).

Marijuana Effects on Hormone Levels

-increase in ACTH levels.
-increase in cortisol levels.
-structurally similar to steroid hormones.
-may bind to estrogen receptors????
-blocks binding of DHT to androgen receptors.
-feminization in males??????
-reductions in testosterone production and spermatogenesis.
-effects are transient.
-reduced FSH and LH levels (prevents LHRH release).
-30% suppression of LH during luteal phase.
-suppresses prolactin during luteal but not follicular phase.
-THC receptor densities fluctuate with estrus cycle in the rat:
-high during diestrus.
-low during estrus
-ovariectomy reduced THC receptor levels which can be restored with estrogen administration.
-reduces copulatory behavior in rats.
-reported to potentiate orgasm.

-prevents TRH binding in the pituitary.
-reduced thryoxine levels.
-hypothermia (chills).

Hope this steers you clear!

Smoking the stuff definately hurt my growth. When a good friend became a law enforcement officer, and asked me if I would quit only because he knew the system, and if I got caught, they could associate me with him, and put his career in jeopardy. I did, and within 1 week, I noticed major gains. For years I smoked 3-4 times a week, nothing much, just at night. All that lost time I could have been really huge by now!

When I started smoking pot heavy five years ago was when I quit training....

It just makes me lazy. It takes away that drive. I used to use that nervous energy, being pissed off about something at work and have awesome workouts. Then, that was exchanged for smoking a joint.

In all honesty if you are still able to train at 100% I don't think it is really going to hurt you all that much. Of course I think you'll train harder and better without it.
