Cluster headaches are often viewed to be the most painful headaches anyone can experience. The authors interviewed 53 cluster headache patients who had used psilocybin or lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) to treat their condition. 22 of 26 psilocybin users reported that psilocybin aborted attacks; 25 of 48 psilocybin users and 7 of 8 LSD users reported cluster period termination; 18 of 19 psilocybin users and 4 of 5 LSD users reported remission period extension. Why is this an amazing find?
This really shouldn’t surprise anyone…CIA doing unethical experiments on unsuspecting people? Shameful. Especially when it comes to psychedelics. One knows how important setting and state of mind is before tripping, so it was no wonder the reactions to LSD came out negatively in these “experiments”. Read on for more info
So what’s so special about this study?
Well for starters, it’s the FIRST successful study done on LSD-assisted psychotherapy since the 1970s…so that’s pretty awesome.
It was a double-blind, randomized, active placebo-controlled pilot study conducted to examine safety and efficacy of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)-assisted psychotherapy in 12 patients with anxiety associated with life-threatening diseases.
A big thank you to my favorite person for showing me this. You may or may not have seen this before, but if you haven’t, the 5 minutes is totally worth your time.
I can’t tell you about it…if you can’t see it, then you’ll never know it…I feel sorry for you.
