Hillbilly Cubensis hails from Arkansas, and it’s a highly potent member of the Cubensis fungi family. It’s comparable to other members of that family, like Golden Teachers and Amazonians. This strain can now be found growing naturally in 5 other continents. This mushroom is great all round mushroom for beginners and intermediate shroomers.
Hillbilly mushrooms are medium-large sized mushrooms bearing a conical cap. This cap, often sporting a distinct umbo at its center, presents itself in a variety of hues ranging from chestnut brown to pale caramel, sometimes showing an olive tint. The Hillbilly’s sturdy and slender stalks bear a similar color palette, ranging from off-white to pale brown. A unique feature to note is the presence of a delicate ring, or an annulus, found halfway up the stem, a remnant of the partial veil that protected the mushroom during its development. Like many in the Psilocybe family, Hillbilly mushrooms display a beautiful bluish bruising, a telltale sign of the presence of the psychoactive compound psilocybin.
