I used to think that when I smoked pot I would break out and I heard of the expression Pot Pimples. I have since stopped smoking weed and have not noticed any difference. Has anyone had any experience with this subject?? Now I know that the Chinese believe that anything smoked brings heat into the body (obviously) that is very toxic and the heat alone will cause all sorts of problems. I also used to smoke cigarettes and definately noticed no difference when I stopped this habit as well, but again I've heard differently for others, and if you smoke you should quit anyways. Also I have heard that smoking marijuana can cause gall stones for some people. Now I also used to use oxycontin regularly and that was when my acne was at its worse, but I also didn't take very good care of myself, actually no care at all. Even when I would take Vicoden I would seem to break out, probably the toxins. So -------- the weed ???? Anybody???

weed has got some medicinal purposes, but it may aggravate acne, though its on a different level than cigarettes so you cant compare, im not sure if it does do anything though

yes weed does have its medicinal purposes, which is mostly from the THC. When you smoke it though you are smoking so much other crap thats not important so that can be very bad for your health. This is why making cookies or brownies is better for you. Also a vaporizer is much better than actually lighting the weed because a vaporizer only heats the weed to a very high temperature, thus creating vapors for you to inhale, which is much better for the lungs as well. Maybe when if I get clear from Wai's diet, freeacnebook.com , I will try smoking some weed, then I will compare the results to cooking with it.
Ahh.. getting high for educational purposes.. Don't try this at home kids...

Smoking it won't do your skin any favours really, but depends on how sensitive your skin is really. I smoked coupla joints last night and my skin isn't much different from yesterday so was lucky it didnt effect me really. Think hash cakes are the way forward though, will be baking a couple for festivals this year. dozing.gif biggrin.gif

I TAKE PERCS FOR MY BACK AND I SWEAR IM THINKING THAT AFTER AWHILE MY BODY CANT TAKE THEM ANYMORE AND ITS WHAT IS MAKING ME BREAKOUT! I NEVER HAD ACNE IN MY LIFE!!! I DUNNO IF IT JUST KILLED MYLIVER OR WHAT BUT EVERYONE KEEPS SAYING ITS PROBABLY THEM AND I SAID NO. BUT SINCE YOU TOOK VICS AND BROKEOUT IT JUST MIGHT BE...


OH AND iVE SMOKED POT UP UNTILL A YEAR AGO. ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT AND NEVER BROKE OUT.
What I do and have been doing for a looooooooooooong time.
Why I broke out all of a sudden is beyond me... Might be a a female thing I think..Anywaysss


I wake up and wash my face with Murad AHA BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (its very very gentle) and then wash with MALIN+GOETZ facial cleanser


During the day I wash with St Ives Apricot Scrub. Sometimes the one for acne sometimes not.

At night I wash my face b4 bed or else I cant fall asleep and wash with Murad Pomegranate foaming wash and moisturize with MALIN + GOETZ (his stuff is good its the only moisturizer that doesnt feel heavy or greasy. I absorbs fast too)

when you smoke weed, you get cravings for terrible crappy food, which is usually high-carb and high-sugar, and since you're high, you go ahead and eat it, cause you don't care. That's how weed causes acne.

I've never heard of weed causing acne. In fact I tried to research it online using google and a couple of sites says there's no link. I quit smoking a month ago and I'm still breaking out.

Smoking weed doesn't make a difference in my skin. And your acne was probably worse when on opiates bc the itchies. I know when I'm doped up that my nose and chin itch constantly. Along with the redt of my face...and I usually get more breakouts. Plus I'm more carefree when doped up bc you're pretty much numb and clouded with euphoria...who gives a care about skin problems when ya feel that. haha. But yeah I think quitting cigs would definitely benefit my skin. I need willpower.

What festivals will you be going to? I was going to go to Bonnaroo, but found out MTV was running it and it's going to be too commercial for me...there's still a decent line up though. I went 2004 and 2005. This year I'm going to Wakarusa and All Good for sure...not sure if I'll go to anymore unless there's some awesome line ups.

Sorry man, I'm in the UK so no American fests for me! Going to Reading for the whole weekend and V fest for the Saturday. Should be a great laugh cos I've never been to Reading before.

Probably a stupid question, but wondered if doing mushrooms (psychadelic not garlic! biggrin.gif ) would affect acne at all?

While I don't know the scientific evidence of pot causing acne I have known a lot of potheads over the years (some of the nicest people I've ever met because they are never upset about anything haha) Anyway, most of the potheads I've known have had pretty bad acne, mostly guys around where they have to shave. In general most of those people though don't do much besides smoke pot, eat, and sit in front of the tv. So I associated their acne more with no face washing, no topical treatmnents, ect... because they could care less about taking care of their skin when their blown. So, I say moderation is the key, like with everything else. Don't get so involved in pot that you neglect basic hygiene but don't underestimate the stress relieving power of the occassional J.

I think it's the same with people who drink a lot. You have to think when your mind is heavily altered, washing your face before you pass out is the last thing on your mind. On a political note, I prefer pot and people who smoke pot over alcohol and people who drink a lot because I've never seen anyone who is high get violent or do much worse than say some silly things and eat a lot, I have however, seen many many drunk people get violent, and do some pretty dumb things.....so tell me why is it legal to drink to the point of near death, but not to smoke even just one bowl??

Anyone been to Hempfest here in Seattle? I haven't seen any corelation with weed and acne. Just the muncnies. I had the same problem with the bongs though lol. I love blunts. I quit smoking weed for months at a time and I'd still breakout. Anyone heard that it stunts your growth?

Actually most of it's medicinal uses are from the 60+ different cabbinnoids in the plant.
