Hillbilly Mushroom Spores for Microscopy

Hillbilly mushroom spores derive from the Hillbilly cubensis that was discovered growing naturally in Arkansas. The name “Hill Billy” was the username of the strain’s developer. Hillbilly strains are known to be fast colonizers and contaminant-resistant. This is an uncommon and distinctive strain to have in your spore collection as its spores are somewhat difficult to come by.

The strain is comparable to other members of the cubensis fungi family, such as Golden Teachers and Amazonians. The strain became available in online mycology forums starting in the early 2000s.

Potential Role in Treating Depression
Several studies have examined psilocybin—the psychoactive component in magic mushrooms—for treating depression. Researchers from Johns Hopkins first reported in 2016 that treatment with psilocybin significantly relieved anxiety and depression in people with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis.A subsequentstudy from Johns Hopkins found that two doses of psilocybin plus supportive psychotherapy resulted in “rapid and large” reductions in symptoms of depression. According to the Hopkins team, findings from the latest study suggest that psilocybin may be effective in a much wider patient population than previously thought.

Alan Davis, Ph.D., adjunct professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, reported that the magnitude of the effect was about “four times larger than what clinical trials have shown for traditional antidepressants on the market.” Commenting on the study, Dr. Andrew Weil found it encouraging that psilocybin worked so quickly for many participants since most antidepressant medications take weeks or months to work—if they work.
