Psilocybe weilii is a psilocybin-containing mushroom found only in northern Georgia in the United States. It is named after Andrew Weil,[1] the famous integrative medicine physician.

The mushroom prefers red clay soil and is often found near pine growing in bermuda grass or fescue. It is often found in urban lawns in the summer and fall.
