And I still cannot find a ligament answer. SO ill ask you ladies because Ive learned more from this site then my college classes.



A few months ago I smoked every night ( I stopped back in Sep. so I could get a job). Well, I started loosing weight. I dropped 25 lbs. Since Ive stopped my weight has stayed the same but I have nothing else to leave it up to except for the pot. I didn't change my diet, I'm still as active as I was. I dunno, do you think is just a coincidence?

I've read a lot of research about it helping keep your weight down too, so that's weird. Idk what to think.

Wait did you lose weight while smoking it, or since you stopped?

Maybe for you personally :) But a really close friend of mine quit smoking pot and actually gained weight (I assume from all the "stress eating" she was doing) She quit smoking pot and got really bitchy, lol she needed it! Hahaha

While I was smoking, I smoked for about 3 months just about every night.

DH use to smoke daily, & could not gain weight. He is 6'2 and was 150 for a long time. He worked out, ate junk food, and didn't gain a pound. He stopped smoking last March & shot up to 190 within a year. I thought pot would make you gain weight, but this has happened to a lot of people I know.

Oh ok, yeah that makes a lot of sense. They actually found it to increase metabolism in rats(not sure if they did a human study yet or not) and its also been shown to help people maintain a healthy body weight.
Like I said, I gained 10 lbs out of nowhere right afterI quit. I quit for a few months, started again, and lost almost all of it(now I'm pregnant so I can't really lose weight).

I didnt even notice I was loosing weight until my pants started slipping off my ass lol. Then I weighed myself and noticed I was down 25 lbs. I didnt think it could be true just because Ive googled it and even asked some doctor friends and they said pot has no effect on your metabolism. Now I don't know. I think some experimenting is in order. I will get to the bottom of this!

Believe me, there are studies :)
Get back on google haha because I just typed in "marijuana and weight" and a bunch of stuff came out.
Don't believe everything you read though especially articles because depending on if they're for or against pot they will twist shit.

Very true. After I get this job I will have to see, because losing weight from doing one of my favorite things doesnt seem too bad.

Well aren't you lucky lol. If I liked sleeping all day, I would try that for weight loss. But... If I smoke I go straight to sleep & sleep at least 16 hours. & feel horrible the next day.
