Magic Mushrooms May Cure Cluster Headaaches
Psychedelic mushrooms are making a comeback - medically. Here's the low-down on the medical 'shrooms:
In the past two years scores of British cluster headache sufferers have turned to magic mushrooms, prompted by reports from the US that suggest that LSD and psilocybin - the active ingredient of magic mushrooms - may be able to control the intensity and duration of their headaches.
Although some have experimented with psychedelics before, the majority have no history of drug taking. But many say they would rather risk jail than forgo a substance that lets them lead a normal life.
Spurred on by the large number of patients who find relief from the mushrooms,
researchers at Harvard Medical School are hoping for permission from the US food and drug administration to conduct a controlled trial.
