Psilocybin Can Reduce Cravings In Alcohol Dependent Rats, And Now We Know Why

A study discovered that psilocybin can reduce the odds of alcohol relapse! 

How does it work? Alcohol reduces a protein in the brain called mGluR2. In a rat model, researchers found that the more protein lost, the more alcohol the rats craved, creating an addictive cycle.

Psilocybin was able to restore protein levels, thus decreasing relapses.
