Link:for this Post: Mind Hacks: Treating cluster headaches with LSD and psilocybin.
Mind Hacks is a often interesting blog by a fellow who signs his name Vaughn and is one of the contributors to the popular O’Reilly book Mind Hacks. Today’s post is about a a scientific study using small mounts of psilocbyin and LSD to treat cluster headaches.
Links are given to the paper which was published in the American Journal of Neurology by ways of the Vaults of Eroid.
Also mentioned is an interesting edition of the BBC Radio Program "All in the Mind" in which "Claudia Hammond takes a trip into the world of psychedelic drug." You can listen to that program by visiting this link.
What do I think about the study? Well I always like it when researchers study psychedelics,
especially the two that they picked. I tend to like high doses but can understand why someone with a cluster head ache might want to start with a smaller one.
I also think that there sure are a lot more interesting things that could be done with those drugs …. I won’t complete the thought but you get the idea!.
