An important thing to know about SARMs is that they are not attuned to bodybuilding; they are being explored to assist people with WASTING conditions - people who have trouble doing enough exercise, eating enough food, getting enough protein, old people, convalescents, the injury-prone. They are not going to be useful to anyone in your situation. They are not steroids, they are not precursors to steroids, they are not replacements for steroids.
What you’re after is body recomposition. To achieve that, you will need to already be active enough and disciplined enough to maintain your focus on your sleep, your nutrition, your activity, and a genuine workout plan.
Once you get to that point, you should be able to see and feel real results in 3-6 months...and, that IS the short-cut. Even if you had real steroids, they would mess you up more than help you.

I have delta-3-carene terpene to help with bone/teeth growth. I wonder what terpenes help muscle growth, and if delta-3-carene's one of them, alone or in synergy with others.
Breathing techniques, with or without your bong/vape/rig/etc, can have a big impact. I do wim hof method's breathing, and find I can work out WWWWWAY more after a few rounds, getting me into the range where I will actually be building muscles. Already feeling the benefits.
I recall reading about cannabinoids and muscle growth a while back, but I dont recall which or any specifics, but there are definitely multiple avenues of action, across many cannabinoids.
I hope that info helps and isn't redundant repetition (I only skim read the thread).
Breathing is huge, especially when lifting, but important all the time. Just getting into the habit of breathing deeply yet normally for ten minutes a day is a big deal. Dunno about the chemical gematria of cannabinoids, but focus is as important to lifting, exercise, getting to know your body as every other aspect of every movement, and I find focus exercises and cannabis go happily arm-in-arm. Focused, again, being the key: ‘stoned’ isn’t always the same thing.
I don’t know anything about the careens you mention...as for the Lysine and Leucine, you might be better served by a decent whey protein blend or isolate. ALL the aminos play big roles in building muscle, so availability counts. I currently have three kinds. A hydrolysed/isolate blend, a plain 100% WPI, and a chocolate flavored WPI/casein blend. No they’re not any of them “necessary” but they have their uses...I don’t get to eat as much is I would like, for example, and my choices are limited. Optimum Nutrition, I believe, @ Costco
