ive been smoking weed everyday for the past 7 years, i stopped to get a job and my acne got horrible. i wondered if there was a connection so when i started smoking again i looked for change in my acne, it got 95% better. sometimes when i have a bad breakout, while im high my skin might look a little worse but after it looks better than it did before i smoked. i started smokin weed at age 13 and im almost 20 with no hair loss at all ive never even heard of that happening. i have 50 friends who smoke just as much as me and never had hairloss or anything. but some people are different so i cant say its completely not true. overall weed makes my skin 95% better ill never quit smokin it, im married to the mary jane!

You should quit that stuff is crap. Dunno if it makes your skin worse
but it will make your fitness worse and if you continue it can mess with your mental health.

I always pondered on the effects of marijuana on acne... For most people, I guess it's fine considering the number of people without acne who smoke... But for me... I started smoking in 12th grade... I smoked on a daily basis.. I didn't have bad acne before smoking.. I did have very minimal acne but nothing that got my attention.. After smoking daily for a few months, I did notice my skin getting worse and worse.. When I smoke, my face would get a little red. If I am smoking with BP on my face, the zits just puss up and the results are treacherous... Anyways, after a year, I stopped smoking for about 2 months... I have not seen any impressive results... I think there needs to be research on marijuana and acne... I am not condoning the use of drugs or whatever.. I am only contributing to the concerns of acne causes.

There might not be too many physiological side effects that can be noted from marijuana, depending on the form of use, but it does alter your hormones and psyche, which can have some effect on the skin. I remember reading in some book back in high school that if you use it a lot (daily) for an extended period of time during adolescence, then your body becomes dependent on the marijuana for the hormones that it alters, and the body becomes less efficient at producing it's own hormones (that marijuana affects, I can't remember which ones at the moment.)

Then again, I've known people that've been smoking for years and their skin looks better than mine, so it all depends on the person I suppose eusa_think.gif

You can grow to be an open minded person without the use of drugs. You can be happy and fulfilled without the usage of drugs. Crediting a substance such as weed with your success certainly says something about your character,and it's not positive.

There have been studies that long-term use ties in with mental issues. Inhaling smoke in general is bad for your body.The only way to smoke weed without the use of smoke is to eat it or use a vaporization technique.



More importantly, weed is illegal..whether it's a good law or not doesn't matter. Weed isn't some super awesome thing that you need to break the law for. It's not worth it AT ALL.
Supplements:
25mg zinc citrate,1g B5(two 500mg caps,one with breakfast and one with dinner),500mg curcumin with biperine,Carlson's fish oil
Day Routine:
Honey/Clay Cleanser (1Tablespoon raw honey,1 tablespoon dry clay,4 Tablespoons water)
ACV Toner (half ACV,half water or green tea)
MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Mist

Night Routine:
Aveeno Ultra Calming Foam cleanser
ACV toner
MyChelle Skin Clearing Serum

Trinessa BCP
80%-90% clearer than before,depending on the "monthly terror" and luck

Whoever said you need drugs to be open minded?? And please, do not demean drugs such as marijuana. You have no clue what marijuana can do. If you want to be a conservative and continue following conventional "rules", go ahead. But don't degrade something that is highly misunderstood.

It's not misunderstood.I'm pretty sure everyone has smoked pot at one time or another.So everyone saying things AGAINST Marijuana most likely has experience to back up their argument.There's also valid studies on it.

I dont agree with what I posted in the nutrition section anymore. I just think its not worth it. People worrying about food and acne all day in order to improve their life somehow while they are actually just digging a bigger hole for themselfs. The only reason to eat right should be to feel a bit better. Because the chances you will be able to reduce your acne in such an amount that its worth the effort instead of just trying a new topical is astronomicly low.

Basically get a low effort topical like differin or something more harsh if that doesnt work and just start living the life you want to live!

What can it do? wow. I can make a list... But let me just give a few. Ever heard of MEDICINAL marijuana? Yea. Research shows that it has health benefits for those suffering from alzheimers, glaucoma, migraines, arthritis, crhons, MS, and more...let me say that there have been no overdose on marijuana.. it's impossible.. give a man some marijuana and then give another man alcohol.. compare their behavior. and question why the hell alcohol remains legal while marijuana doesn't.. there's very little evidence to suggest that marijuana is a significant health risk.. most of all, it's natural... a lot of people don't take nature seriously. but if you'd rather take some synthetic/chemical pills for those migraines, go ahead bud.

And to the lady who said that most people don't like marijuana after trying it... haha. that is ABSURD. you certainly don't like it because it's probably too intense of an experience for you.. But as far I know, marijuana is a great experience for open minded individuals who just need to kick-back once in a while.. Ofcourse daily consumption leads to laziness and unproductiveness... But from my experience, smoking marijuana in moderation can lead to great insight.. it's not a BAD thing to relax and smoke a little and laugh a while... just because someone tells you something is wrong and bad, doesn't mean they're right. and ofcourse some people don't respond positively to marijuana but that doesn't mean they should demoralize it and ruin the fun for those who benefit from it..

Ive had moderate acne for 4 years. Severe at one point...im almost 21. Ive been on accutane once. Cleared it then it came back mild. I have about 5-6 pimples on my face all the time. I have tried literally everything. Not just everything over the counter. Everything money can buy and doctors can give you. Ive smoked in the past here and there, but recently I started smoking a lot more...and my acne is dissapearing. When I smoke, Im clear...when I dont, i break out.

Then I did some research and found this article: http://gorillaofftop...em-to-think-so/

I also found people with the same odd success.

Now Im definitely not saying go get loaded and be acne free...but I'd just thought I'd post something about it.

Anybody have this happen to them?

Everyones body is different, but at the end of the day, weed still has a NEGATIVE impact on the human body in multiple ways.
The truth:


Being positive is pointless, i'm trying to live here. You can't trust anyone. The people you are really close with can easily turn out to be the most shallow people you will ever meet. Just when you think you have everything figured out, you realize you had it all wrong. Live your life, and don't depend on others. Do what you need to do to get by, keep watch on your own back, and you'll be fine. Last time I checked, seven figure salaries aren't earned by people who depend on others. See what i'm saying? Maybe you don't, maybe you won't, maybe it's just me or maybe your full of shit I don't know.

I've smoked weed almost every day for the last 3 years. There is no need to argue about whether it's bad for you or not, that's for the politicians and activists to debate. I began to wonder what was causing my acne considering I only started breaking out when I turned 18.

I know that weed could have some effect on acne because of the "munchies" it gives you, making you eat alot, and over eating, or just eating junk food won't help your skin. Marijuana has some effect on hormones, so I have decided to quit smoking weed. I will let you guys know if I have any notable results after a few weeks.

Of course it's hard to tell what is causing/helping acne because its so cyclical.

I started getting acne at the beginning of high school. I started smoking wheeed senior year and continued to smoke throughout college (a total of ~5 years). My acne never went away in college and I always wondered if marijuana was a factor, but I was having too much fun smoking with friends etc so I didn't stop. Now, post-college (for about 2 years) I only smoke once every few months or so and my acne is pretty much the same as it has been since high school.

So, for me personally it doesn't seem to have impacted my skin all that much. Maybe once in a while when I smoked I'd get anxiety and that could cause a flare up but on a day to day basis no.

The scientific evidence supports the presence of a correlation between marijuana and oily skin. The reason is because smoking marijuana has a slight impact on insulin levels...so basically getting the munchies is a sign that your blood sugar is unstable. Whether this causes you to actually get acne is a different story. In certain individuals, quitting may help about as much as adopting a low glycemic diet.

hasnt chronic marijuana use been proven to actually improve long term memory?

@powdered I think that getting the munchies is no where near as bad as actually listening to them and eating a lot of crap xD

Incorrect.

The impact of cannabis use on mental health has been studied extensively for years,
and cannabis use is now considered a risk factor for developing psychotic conditions including schizophrenia.

Yes, I was already aware of these. However, the people who developed psychosis or schizophrenia were already at risk for developing these disorders.

... acneslayer. You dont know if you are at risk for such a disorder. A significant increase is an increase.
But compared to all other drugs this effect is nothing.
