aight so i smoked a good amount of weed with sum buddies this past weekend, and i took the beep test in gym 2 days later (monday), and i only got a 9.5-still one of the best in the class, but last time we did it i got 11. (there's different versions of it, different dificulties, but for this one at about 7 half the people are gone. so a 9.5 is around top 5 in the class, 11 is top 3 or 2

then i played hockey tonite, and i ate right before (beef & rice), which, any athlete knows, eating before playing (especially beef) is a stupid f*cking idea and makes you feel like shit, play like shit, and possibly bring it back up the way it came in...which is exactly what happened....

so im pretty sure the hockey thing is explained for itself, but it got me thinking....i've been smokin weed for a while, but in the last couple weeks on weekends, missing a weekend in between here or there, but we blaze like 3-4 grams a weekend between 4 of us...

so im wonderin....it cant REALLY have that kind of an impact this quickly can it? i mean, come on, that's f*ckin fast. i'd expect it to take that affect on your body over a MUCH longer period of time. i kno a joint is like 8 ciggs, but...i duno, im jus thinkin out loud here

thoughts??? it can't take this affect this quickly can it?

Well, you could have just been having a bad day for it. But also...you are inhaling burning smoke into your lungs. Weed isn't really dangerous, but don't take that to mean that holding in fire is going to make you breathe better.

Dude...are you blazed right now? This thread is hard to understand...I'm not sure exactly what the question you're asking is...maybe restate it in a shorter and more simple form, without the backstory.

Try smoking from a bong rather than joints in order to minimise the negative impact of smoking on respiratory health, also, if you plan on smoking occasionally and participating in athletics I would recommend that you run occasionally in order to strengthen your lungs as much as possible.

That said, I've never noticed such things happening from personal observation although obviously different individuals are affected quite differently by recreational drugs.

9.5? your class sucks


lol like i said bud, there's ALOT of different beep tests. trust me. if your gettin 9.5 on the same test, its worth 85-90% as a mark. there's ones where you start at level 1, ones that go faster (eg. easier to get to higher levels), all that....this one starts at 0 and is fukin hard...we did one from austrailia last year and i got 15....go figure...

who inhales BURNING WEED? nah man, i hold the smoke in all the time, usually for only 5 secs or so...sometimes up to 20 or 30 if we're marathoning it...

naw smoking weed is good for you


Not exactly...it ****s up your lungs if you smoke it a lot...and it kills brain cells...I'd have to say it's better than cigarettes, but I smoke both, so I shouldn't talk. I'm not sure if it should be taking such a toll on your body, though, if it's only occasional blazing. I agree with smoking out of a bong...I'm not sure how much weed affects your performance, though...since I've been smoking cigs before I started blazing. Maybe google it?

Forgot to mention this in my previous post, it is not necessary to hold the smoke in your lungs for more than a few seconds as the vast majority of the THC is absorbed in that time, holding the smoke in for longer will only damage your lungs.

Edit:Weed does not kill brain cells as does alcohol, although structural changes have been observed in animal studies in very high dosages, meaning that it is certainly not perfectly safe in this respect.

Why do I always waste the moste time on UG when I'm supposed to be writing a paper?

Yah, Youll end up hurting your lungs. Breathing in any kind of burned material is really bad for you.

while smoking pot kills brain cells...i heard that headbanging itself kills more.

Yeah, it ends up screwing your lungs. My friend was once a very fast athlete, with around 5:45 minute miles. He started smoking weed and his times have dropped considerably. Still good times, though.

Sorry but uh..I reread my comment and then yours a few times, and I'm still not sure how they relate, other than they both had the word "inhale"

And I would hope you light your weed before you toke it, otherwise uh...I'd kinda like to know how you smoke unlit joints.

A joint is not the equivalent of 8 ciggarettes - cigs are much worse for you than weed, and will have more harm over both short and long term exposure.

Although smoking does affect your health, stamina, and other cardio activities to a degree, the streotype of smokers can't run is only true for those smokers that don't exercise regularly.

I run 5 miles a day and smoke maybe 4-5 cigarettes a day also and smoke weed when I'm around friends. I never feel slow or tired from the smoking. For the longest time I thought I was just lucky, until I started talking to a guy on the track team that goes to my community college. He's a smoker and I asked him if it slows him down. He said it doesn't because his lungs are already trained to handle long distrance runs.

Then I remembered that I've been running the same 5 miles before I started smoking (About when I was 17). So basically, smoking only affects those fat lazy bastards that never exercise.

Yeah...because consuming a relatively high volume of smoke into your lungs is a good thing.

I resent that. I used to be able to run like crazy before I started smoking, and now, although I can run fast, I can't run distances anymore. Not to mention that 4-5 cigs doesn't do much...and it also depends on how long you've been smoking. I've been smoking a pack a day for a year now, and TRUST me...it makes a difference.

I'd like to see links to some reliable info on that...cuz' the only reason I said that weed kills brain cells is because I've seen it on several websites.

Not that I don't believe you...I know people who can bullshit and sound incredibly intelligent...so I don't really trust much of anything anyone says unless I've seen it before, or I get proof.

If people smoked more bud, no one would care enough to think about these things.

So lets pass a J around.

Its an endurance exercise, where a tape beeps, and you run a short distance. When it beeps again, you run back, and so on and so forth. Eventually, it speeds up (or increases levels) When you can't make it to the other side before the next beep, your done.

Well the fact that weed kills brain cells is untrue. You could ingest THC to end without killing brain cells. What kills brain cells is holding your breath fro 30 seconds. So you could argue that going swimming kills brain cells. Farts in elevators kill brain cells. Whatever.

nope, it has been proven that it doesn't kill brain cells, this was a myth that was started when some stupid scientist did an experiment in which he gave monkeys a HUGE overdose of it.

but yea, don't smoke too much, it will screw up your lungs a bit
