German 1V-LSD ban

UPDATE October 2022

Lizard Labs have announced 1D-LSD, successor to 1V-LSD and a new legal lysergamide in Germany. We’ve written an article with everything we know up until this point you can read here. You can also buy 1D-LSD here (currently available on preorder, shipments start October 17th).

UPDATE 30th August 2022

The final few weeks for legal 1V-LSD in Germany are upon us.

The meeting notes for the next Federal Council meeting on September 16th have now been published and sadly the expected NpSG amendment is listed as you can see HERE (Item 55)

This means 1V-LSD will be added to the NpSG and become illegal in Germany shortly after September 16th 2022.

Once the Federal Council votes through an amendment, it needs to be published in to the Federal Gazette, becoming law the day after. This process can take a few days, or a few weeks. In 2021 the last NpSG amendment came in to law 7 days after being discussed by the Federal Council.

This means for all our German customers, there’s just a few weeks remaining to legally purchase 1V-LSD. We recommend stocking up now.

We will continue to ship 1V-LSD to our German customers until the day the ban is published in the Federal Gazette HERE. We will be checking daily from September 16th and recommend all our German customers to do the same before they order. Any orders we can not fulfil will be fully refunded.

Please remember that the NpSG is primarily designed to stop distribution . While it is technically illegal to be in possession of substances covered by the NpSG, penalties are far less harsh than for other substances covered by the BtMG and many believe prosecution for personal use will not be followed up. To date, there have been very few cases of prosecution for personal amounts of substances covered by the NpSG – however as with all legal matters, please do your own research and decide the risks for yourself.

We’ve just received sad and unfortunate news from our reptilian friends over at Lizard Labs that 1V-LSD will soon be added by the German government to the NpSG, making it illegal to distribute, import and purchase within Germany. The time frame isn’t exact, but the ban will likely come into effect in June 2022, much like the previous NpSG revision in 2021 banning 1cP-LSD and all arylcyclohexylamine dissociatives such as 2-FDCK.

Lizard Labs stated in their February Newsletter:

“We’ve recently received information from a reliable source that the German narcotics committee is working on a ban to include 1V-LSD in the NpSG. Although the draft law has not yet been published, we expect that it will be published and approved around June this year.”Why so sudden?

It is important to note that this ban and new legislation haven’t been made public by the German government, however we’re sure Lizard Labs have solid information on this. As soon as the draft gets published – most likely when it gets submitted to the European Commission – we will update this article, link to it, and examine it in depth.

Interestingly and rather shockingly, this would indicate a new secretive direction by the German government for bringing in bans and changes to the NpSG. Changes to the NpSG are traditionally discussed and recommended by a Committee of Experts that meets a few times a year. Agenda notes for these meetings are published HERE and give you an indication of what they are looking at – a good example are the meeting notes from the 53rd meeting that lead to the 2021 NpSG revision banning 1cP-LSD.

You can find the agenda notes from the most recent Committee of experts meeting on 30/11/2021 HERE
As you can see, the notes are empty and do not mention any potential changes to the NpSG, Lysergamide classification, or 1V-LSD.

What does this mean?

Either the German Government are drawing up new legislation to add substances to the NpSG without recommendation by the Committee of Experts, or they are now purposefully withholding information from the Agenda notes to hide what they are discussing. Either way, this is a shocking move by the German government, further moving away from fact or evidence-based decisions.

Will there be an alternative to 1V-LSD?

This is the big question I’m sure many of you – myself included – are wondering.

The short answer is; we hope so, but it is not definite. As Lizard Labs stated in their newsletter:

“We are on the lookout for a suitable successor but, with the unexpected rapidity of this ban, and the trouble we’ve had optimising the synthesis of 1V-LSD, we are not confident that we’ll beat the prohibitionists this time. Hopefully we’ll find a backup but, if not, this could be the end of legal lysergamides in Germany.”

This does not bode well for the future of the German lysergamide market for two reasons. With the ban coming in so quickly (it’s been only 7 months since 1V-LSD was released), this gives Lizard Labs a very short duration of time to recuperate the resources used on producing 1V-LSD. It takes a huge amount of time and research (not that kind of research) for novel lysergamides to be discovered, synthesised, and optimised.

Secondly, the law in Germany keeps expanding, so that the number of potential legal LSD analogues that are chemically stable, safe, and producible on a large scale is getting ever smaller. This means Lizard Labs have a more and more difficult task they need to achieve in a shorter and shorter time frame. 

We have faith that the reptiles will do everything they can to find a legal alternative to 1V-LSD, but it is not guaranteed at the current time. 

We will add regular updates to this article when we receive more information about the upcoming ban.

What is the NpSG?

In Germany, there are several laws that govern drugs. The NpSG or Neue-psychoaktive-Stoffe-Gesetz (New Psychoactive Substances Act) was introduced on November 26th 2016 in an attempt to combat the spread of new psychoactive substances and research chemicals. Previously the BtMG (German Narcotics act) listed and scheduled substances individually, however, the new NpSG took a different approach by banning entire groups of substances to stop altered and novel compounds circumventing the law.

The full up-to-date NpSG act can be found here with chemical definitions for the compounds that fall under it.

Who does it affect?

It’s important to note that while the NpSG is an annex of the BtMG, the prohibition and penal provisions of the NpSG are particularly aimed at manufacturers, dealers, and distributors to stop the manufacture, sale, importation, and distribution of research chemicals within Germany. While it is technically illegal to acquire and be in possession of substances covered by the NpSG, penalties are far less harsh than for other substances covered by the BtMG and some believe prosecution will not be followed up. This does mean, however, once substances fall under the NpSG, most research chemical vendors will stop shipping them to or supplying them to Germany.

As always, we highly recommend you read, interpret and familiarise yourself with the laws within your jurisdiction to make informed decisions about the legality of your research.

Can I still order 1V-LSD?

A question we’re getting a lot – the short answer is: Yes.

Until the amendments to the NpSG have been published in the Federal Gazette, you will be able to buy 1V-LSD as normal.

Will I get into trouble for ordering 1V-LSD now?

No – laws can not be enforced retroactively, so as long as you order (and receive your order) before the NpSG is revised or legislation passed, the entire process is still legal.

It’s important to remember that once the NpSG is revised, all the compounds covered by it will no longer be legal to import, distribute or manufacture in Germany. Possession of compounds covered by the NpsG is still considered illegal however as stated earlier, many people believe possession of small amounts for personal use will not generally be considered a prosecutable offense, as the NpsG is primarily set up to prosecute and penalise importers and distributors over personal users.

Saying this, it is important to read, research and interpret these laws yourself to make a safe and informed decision.

Is my information and contact details safe with you?

Yes. We are a legal, tax-paying Dutch company operating from the Netherlands. Everything we sell is 100% legal in NL and the German government and authority have no jurisdiction over us.

What products are legal in Germany?

We have a dedicated Legal in Germany section to keep things simple. All of these products are shipped domestically from within Germany, meaning much quicker and more reliable shipping than if we shipped from The Netherlands.

The following 1V-LSD products are available:

1V-LSD 10mcg Micro Pellets

1V-LSD 150mcg Blotters

1V-LSD 225mcg Custom Design Blotters

1V-LSD 225mcg Pellets

The following Kratom teas are also available:

Passion Fruit White Borneo Kratom Tea

Red Bali Kratom Tea

Strawberry Green OG Bali Kratom Tea

White Borneo Kratom Tea

All of our merchandise is also available to Germany, although most of it will be shipped from within the Netherlands, so you should expect slightly longer shipping times with those items.

  1. It would be great to have a country extended and detailed list for what’s actually purchaseable and not depending on local legislation, i’ve honestly made a couple of purchases but sometimes i’m just lazy to check out how that goes like, considering the amount of effort and resources invested by the CC, i think that we should do ourselves a favour and have a public list somewhere in the website with such information along with relational shipping options (ie. remove countries from the shipping options if X substance in the cart can’t be sent over).

  2. »Das Wirkliche ist ebenso
    zauberhaft, wie das Zauberhafte
    wirklich ist.«
    Sizilischer Brief an den Mond

    Da bleibt uns nur irgendwann die riesige Welt der psychoaktiven Pflanzen. Doch auch hier gilt Vorsicht, manches kann riskant sein. Ganz wichtig ist genügend fundierte Information zu haben, was viel Zeit braucht, – auch um raus zu finden was überhaupt für einen selber passt. Und große Vorsicht bei MAO Hemmern, wo eine riskante Diät nötig ist. Dazu gehört auch Ayahuasca (Dschungelliane Gebräu mit Mimosa Hostillis) und ein paar andere sehr wirkungsvolle Pflanzen. Yohimbe (stärkstes Aphrodisiakum, aus Westafrika) zählt nach neueren Erkenntnissen vor einigen Jahren doch nicht zu den Mao Hemmern. Es gibt viel sehr gute Fachliteratur. Ich empfehle ganz besonders auch das gr. Standardwerk (685 Seiten) des anerkannten Ethnobiologen „Christian Rätsch“ : Enzyklopädie der psychoaktiven Pflanzen“. AT Verlag Botanik, Ethnopahamakologie und Anwendungen – mit einem Vorwort von Albert Hofmann.
    Da steht fast alles drin was man wissen muss, auch Anwendung, Dosierung, Erfahrungsberichte usw.

  3. the gouvernement is becoming more more complexe this days is time to go found this fuckers and lock them in to a room and make them trip untill the become a better personne …. hahah

  4. Maybe the Lizard have been a bit too provocative this time when they released Valerie the day the predecessor was banned, and now lawmakers feel like they have to prove they still have the power. I’m still glad though, Germany hasn’t entirely ditched rule of law in this regard, as other nations like the US or UK have.

  5. I have dealt with depression for nearly a decade and have tried every prescription drug on the planet before getting pulled out of the abyss by Valerie. Having to go back to dealing with shady people is just devastating news for me. I hate being made to feel like a criminal again just for seeking therapy.
