yes it does. but that's only if you can smoke weed and fight the munchies. because when you smoke you tend to get them.

considering i smoked last night and i ate soooooooooooo much!!! no.

Well I've been smoking for around 2 years now and in the space of 12 months I have lost a stone and a half. I smoke everyday but only in the evenings. I used to get the munchies but not anymore. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 10 and I hate it. So yes smoking weed does make you lose weight.

yes.and it damages your teeth .

It is a depressant. It slows your body down, plus increases your appetite, this can cause weight gain in marijuana smokers. However, this will be on an individual basis. Not all smokers will see a weight difference, but some might.

I would say it is harmful since you are basically doing the same thing as smoking, which harms your breathing rate. I would definitly not recommend it for someone serius about lifting and improving their physique and strength levels.

It's possible, but since most people get the "muchies" from smoking weed, you'd probably gain weight instead of lose it.

Do you usually gain or lose weight lifting weights?

This depends on the person and the kind of weight lifting you do. The short answer however is that lifting weights should help you to lose fat and gain muscle. If you are lifting heavily in order to gain muscle mass, you will gain weight. However, if you are lifting to get lean muscle, it should help to lose weight.
