    First post! Hello.

    I'm a amateur olympic weightlifter and avid stoner. I smoke everyday but set rules for myself like, only smoke at the very end of the day when all my training/work are done. I started noticing that my conditioning and speed has been getting worse. Recently I switched to a vaporizer but I'm afraid that the THC is still affecting my training negatively. Almost like it's slowing me down a bit.

    Now I'm torn because I love toking after training. It just loosens everything up and relieves a lot of soreness. But on the other hand I worry that the THC is slowing down my central nervous system and not to mention all that testosterone lowering shit we hear about it too.

    Hoping somebody here can give me some advice.

    have you been smoking the whole time, and it you JUST started to see differences? or have you been training then right when you started smoking again you saw differences? i wouldn't do it at night if i have training the next day, because sometimes i feel a little buzzed.

    i should have clarified. Basically I started olympic weightlifting less than a year ago. I had always smoked but usually only 1-2 a week. A few months into training I started smoking pretty much every night, almost on a schedule. I've noticed that recently my work capacity has decreased and maybe even my speed/reaction time.

    I've read that your test levels and reaction time are lowered 24 hours after smoking. If this is true that may explain it!

    Switch to a vaporizer and you should be good to go.
