The effects of taking Hillbilly are roughly the same as with any other cube—alteration of mood, thinking style, and perception, including hallucinations at the higher doses. Usually these variations are enjoyable. Occasionally they are very much not, although there are steps you can take to make a good experience more likely—and even a “bad trip” can be spiritually valuable, if you know how to let go and work with it. Users generally report the Hillbilly high is gentler and friendlier than typical, with more laughter and less visuals than other strains at a similar dose. It is sometimes recommended as a good magic mushroom for beginners.
