It’s a long time debate that does smoking Marijuana have any negative consequences on health or on gaining muscle.
Hence, The bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger also smoked Marijuana during his bodybuilding career.
But that doesn’t mean smoking Marijuana is healthy.
It has a stimulating effect on body and mind which gives the wrong signal to the brain.

If you are a regular smoker and still want to increase your muscle mass you have to think twice.
Because in a recent study scientists find out that smoking weed regularly will decrease your testosterone level which is the most crucial hormone for muscle building.

If you smoke occasionally then it has a very little impact on your testosterone level.It slows down testosterone production but doesn’t stop it permanently, as a result, you feel less energetic while workout.

marijuana quote

I thought marijuana wasn’t addictive.

Like any other drug, heavy usage of this drug may increase a person’s risk of withdrawal when stopping.when you stop using marijuana it may lead to crazy experience down the road.
If your dependency on marijuana is low you can stop this addiction on your own.

While the chronic users who have built up a high tolerance might need more help to kick their habit.
But if you are serious about quitting this addiction find the right marijuana rehab center.
