FDA has approved Clinical Trial of Mushrooms!
    #2409956 - 03/09/04 04:50 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

The following is a post taken from the Clusterheadaches.com message board that was presented by Flash, one of many leaders involved in the shroom treatment, and a personal hero to many of us Clusterheads. I really don't know if any of you guys really care all that much, but I thought you guys would like to see our little guys in a positive push in the medical field. By the way, my FOAF just got finished dunking his 6 PR cakes and 18 EQ cakes and everything is going great. Soon I should have some pics to show you guys of his first grow. Talk to ya'll later.

Bob Wold (pinkfloyd) of Clusterbusters.com has given PinkSharkMark and myself the honor of making a joint announcement of historic import to cluster headache sufferers.

Clinical studies on the effectiveness of psilocybin and LSD in the prevention and treatment of cluster headaches will soon take place!

Bob's tireless efforts have finally born fruit. Below is an excerpt from the confirmation letter received by Bob from Rick Doblin Ph.D., the president of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS):

Quote:

Quote:Dear Bob,

As the President of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), I'm writing to confirm our agreement to work together to conduct FDA-approved research into the use of psilocybin and LSD in the treatment and prevention of cluster headaches. This research will be coordinated by MAPS and will be directed by Dr. John Halpern, McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School, in association with Dr. Andrew Sewell.




Many of you have read on this board over the years of the spectacular successs clusterheads have achieved with psilocybin (the active compound in magic mushrooms) and of the equal success of the few LSD experimenters from whom we have reports. We express our heartfelt thanks to all those who had the courage to post their experiences with these controversial -- and in most countries, illegal -- substances in this public forum. Without the convincing evidence gathered from so many reports, there would have been no possibility whatsoever of enlisting any credible researcher -- let alone researchers connected with Harvard Medical School -- to embark upon a clinical study presenting as many challenges as this one does.

We would also like to thank DJ for allowing a full and frank discussion of this therapy to be carried out for so many years in this forum, and a special thanks to Ueli for investing countless hours in compiling his archive of links to every post ever made on this bulletin board regarding the use of psilocybin and LSD. Ueli's archive made the task of presenting convincing case histories to the interested parties a manageable one.


Bob will be releasing further details as the project unfolds, including posting additional information regarding time frames. He will also answer the question, "When & where do I sign up?"

Thanks also to PinkSharkMark for drafting the bulk of this posting.

HERE WE GO!

That's awesome!!

I was just telling some friends of mine the other day about mushrooms being used to treat cluster headaches.

I can't believe it has actually gotten FDA approval...has there been some huge shift in opinion...does our government now actually care about the suffering of others that could be prevented by using "illegal" drugs? In any case, that is great news indeed.

A small but important correction:

FDA approval has not been received yet.

However, the researchers heading the project are confident that it will be... the question is how long will it take. The more optimistic guess is three months. The more pessimistic is a year. No one can say for sure.

However, MAPS was instrumental in obtaining FDA and DEA approval for various MDMA studies, as well as the current study using psilocybin to treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The precedent set by the OCD approvals will be an enormous help in expediting the approvals required for this study.

The title of the original thread at clusterheadaches.com was a little over-optimistic, and has been changed.

I have started a more detailed thread in the "Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms" forum --

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...;o=&fpart=1

filling in a bit of the history behind this. As more details become available, I will update the thread in the G&MM forum.
