    Other than the obvious health defects pertaining to lungs, the main thing to worry about it how it causes lack or motivation/drive. However, many members here to who lift regularly, also smoke regularly (as well as many friends of mine). They just dont smoke prior to lifting.

    When I used to smoke I still hit the gym a few times a week, but if I smoked earlier in the day, lifting was not even about to cross my mind. I would usually smoke after lifting and then pig out on a huge meal.

    Basically, it might hurt your cardio, and might decrease your motivation. If you are looking to take it purely for the hunger effects, I say just slowly work into eating more. In a few months you will probably be able to consume an extra 1k cals a day.

    I had a friend who smoked before lifting.

    He kept laughing in the middle of the rep. It was hilarious.

    I sometimes am more focused at the gym high, but usually a good bleez after a good workout is always nice.

    If you can manage your cravings/munchies on it :dunno: (and you're not worried about the legality, same as anything else)..it *is* used to help out patients who need appetite stimulation.

    But then, cardio makes you hungry too.

    I've given up on smoking earlier in the day. It completely kills my motivation to go to the gym, especially lift. I always say "yeah after I sober up iI'll go" but in reality after I sober up all I want to do is lay down in my bed and either sleep, or watch tv...and then sleep.

    I used to put hash in my omelettes. Avoid some of the negative effects of smoking it.
    But already being a type B personality... definitely not good.

    In one class a prof said something about drug companies trying to extract the molecule that causes munchies, basically to give to AIDs patients to make the hungrey and eat more.

    I smoke Mary Jane after a work out... thats the best time, before a work out makes you lazy and tired, not a good idea.
