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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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:
The following Kratom teas are also available:
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.
