Psilocybin Research

O.U.C.H does not advocate the use of illegal drugs.

Our mission is to inform cluster headache sufferers of all viable avenues of treatment and to fund and participate in research for the treatment of, and eventually a cure for, cluster headaches.  O.U.C.H, in keeping with it's stated mission, has donated money to help fund research into the efficacy of using psilocybin as a treatment for cluster headaches.  This would be a study at the Harvard Medical School's McLean Hospital, conducted with permission from the federal government by qualified and experienced medical researchers.

Here is the announcement sent to O.U.C.H. members:

O.U.C.H, (Organization for Understanding Cluster Headaches) is pleased to announce it’s full support in the promotion of the pending Psilocybin Clinical Trials set to be conducted at the McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

O.U.C.H. will help to promote the study to its members and provide open discussion of this study on their website. We further wish to assist by donating one thousand dollars [$1,000.00] to MAPS specifically for this study.

We wish to acknowledge and thank ClusterBusters for all of the effort put forth to bring us all to this moment.
