I smoke Cannibis 2-3 times daily. I get slight headaches sometimes as well as dizziness when i stand up. I know that smoking and these symptoms are closely related. What I wanted to know is if any pot smokin forum users have any advice. and please I dont need to hear "Smoking pot is bad for your health".

Thank you

What kind of advice are you looking for? If you know the cause of your headaches and dizzines, the only smart choice is to eliminate it.

I smoke pot as well(maybe a few joints worth a month if that). There's nothing wrong with it in moderation if you enjoy it, as life isn't worth living if you do nothing you like(If you drink alcohol, don't comment on how bad pot is because that would make you a huge hypocrite).

As for the lightheadedness, smoking constricts blood vessels(Explains the headache) and so there's less blood going to your brain, add on top of that the fact that you're sitting and when you standup it's like a magnified headrush.

here's a funny link. It's by a man up in Canada who recently died(Age 85) but is an icon up here(To the older generations), wrote over 80 books, is a member ofthe order of Canada, and recently confessed to smoking pot moderately all his life. Here, on a sketch show he teaches the young generation how to roll a joint, and it's actually the right way to do it as well.

I'm just curious why you posted this here. Does smoking pot affect your acne?

Actually, I've read in a few places that cannabis actually is an androgen inhibitor. It supposedly reduces testosterone (or its effects). Some men can develop breast enlargement if they smoke too much. This androgen inhibiting effect may or may not be good for acne, depending on how bad the acne is.

LOL, that's rediculous. Do you have any references?

Besides, there are many things that affect various hormone levels, including test. Hormone levels fluctuate. Alcohol, tobacco, lack of exercise, all reduce test levels, but only slightly. You aren't going to turn into a hemorphradite from smoking weed and more than you would from smoking ciggarettes, or drinking alcohol, or being a couch potato.

Actually, you are exactly right; I'm a bit older than most of you and most of the guys that I know in their 40's & 50's have to have testosterone shots monthly for this very reason--most any doc will tell you the same.

Thats probably because they smoked way to much dope and were the lazy stereotype of a pot smoker. I know a few of them as well. In fact I Know a few that are close to my age who have no sex drive. Of course someone who smokes pot moderately but also exercises and has a good diet will have a great sex drive, over someonewho doesn't smoke pot and is lazy and eats crap all day.

Yeah, I think those are extreem examples. My uncle has been toking all his life, but in moderation, and he's as masculine and healthy and smart as anyone I know. Hehe, the aggrevating this though, is he doesn't even eat right or exercize. It really pisses his fat friends off! Good genes I guess. Maybe it's reduced stress from frequent toking. Ok, I should stop now! Kids! Don't do drugs!

Let me just say, smoking pot isnt neccessarily THAT bad for your health when you do it in moderation. Key word: MODERATION. You should NOT be smoking that much. You are overdoing it. Trust me, Im an occasional cannibis user, but I used to be a horrible habitual user who smoked even more than you do. Its bad times. I never got dizzy or headaches but I did get horrible anxiety attacks and panic until I cut back. I smoke only once a week at the most now, and its much better. You really need to cut back or take a break, there really is no other solution.

I work out every other day, and on my days off I try to walk 4-5 miles. I am getting plenty of exercise, I have a steady job as a carpenters assistant and I like to smoke a fatty or a blunt when I get home from a hard days work. I dont drink alcohol (anymore), and am generally feeling great. as for posting this in a acne forum, I thought the accutane might be a culprit (combined with smoking). My favorite strains are:
Northern Lights #5
Somango
Shiskaberry
MK Ultra
NYC Diesel
and of course the Diggity dank home grown headie nugs.
