As a result of an amendment made to the German NpSG, from mid-July 2021, 1cP-LSD and a number of other novel psychedelics, popular microdosing products, and research chemicals are due to be banned in Germany. This is devastating news for the research chemical industry, who since earlier this year had been awaiting confirmation of the proposed amendment.
The NpSG — Neue-psychoaktive-Stoffe-Gesetz (New Psychoactive Substances Act) — was introduced on November 26th 2016 as a way to combat the spread of new psychoactive substances and research chemicals appearing on the market. Unlike the BtMG (German Narcotics Act), which listed and scheduled substances individually, the NpSG banned entire groups of substances. Despite the introduction of this Act however, there were, and still are, a number of substances circulating the market that were, or are, not covered by the NpSG or BtMG. As a result, the most recent amendment to the NpSG was introduced as a way to further limit the number of psychoactive substances on the market.
Besides the aforementioned 1cP-LSD, the amendment also includes (but is not limited to) the following popular research chemicals:
Although some of these compounds may pose harm to users, many of them do not, or at least do not have clear history or evidence of causing such harm. Lysergamides in particular, such as 1cP-LSD, are well documented as being benign and non-toxic, and therefore, we feel their ban is unwarranted.
Although 1CPLSD.COM is based in the Netherlands, we ship from Germany to ensure an extremely high success rate shipping to non-EU countries. This means that we are affected and will have to stop shipping from Germany once the ban is enforced.
We will be testing new shipping methods from other countries to try and continue serving our customers with 1cP-LSD after the German ban. However, we will only do this if we are confident packages will arrive safely. We will not continue shipping 1cP-LSD unless we have a success rate of >90% (we currently have a success rate of over 95%).
We are also working on an alternative microdosing product that we hope will be ready before the end of the summer.
Due to this uncertainty with our 1cP-LSD logistics, we encourage customers to stock up before the mid-July ban to avoid any disappointment in case we don’t find a viable shipping solution post-ban.
So, with all this being said, it begs the question, what does the future hold for legal psychedelics and microdosing products?
As we have seen in many countries over the last few years, blanket bans have swept through and their drug laws have been subject to constant change. This unpredictability has made it increasingly difficult for the research chemistry market to keep up and stay alive.
Despite this, however, research continues and companies such as Lizard Labs are working hard to discover new psychedelics that have not yet been affected by the ever-changing rules and regulations.
Our hope at 1CPLSD.COM is that we will find new psychedelics suitable for microdosing so that we can continue to supply the market with revolutionary products. We have several candidates that we are currently testing and will keep customers informed about our progress.
With this in mind, and the future unknown, we highly encourage you to stock up on 1cP-LSD while you can!
