1V-LSD (1-valeroyl-lysergic acid diethylamide hemi-L-tartrate), or simply ‘Valerie’, is the latest lysergamide and prodrug derivative of LSD to hit the research chemical market. 1V-LSD is homologous to 1P-LSD, containing a valeroyl group bound to the indole nitrogen instead of a propionyl group. Due to the high lipophilicity of the valeroyl group there is now a great opportunity to study the potentially unique pharmacokinetic properties of this novel compound.
1V-LSD is gaining immense popularity amongst the health and self-development communities and can be considered an identical replacement to our regular microdosing product, 1cP-LSD.
The nickname ‘Valerie’ is derived from segments of the most significant chemical groups described in the chemical name 1-VALeroyl-lysERgic acid dIEthylamide. Moreover, several participants of our research group noted the presence of a ‘female entity’ whilst researching this compound. Hence we feel the name Valerie is apt!
A prodrug is a molecule with little or no pharmacological activity that is converted into an active parent molecule in-vivo by enzymatic or chemical reactions, or by a combination of the two. In the case of 1V-LSD, 1cP-LSD, 1P-LSD, and 1B-LSD, these are prodrugs of LSD. This means that living organisms, such as animals, can convert them into LSD if consumed.
You might be wondering what is so different about 1V-LSD? Whilst both 1V-LSD and 1cP-LSD are prodrug derivatives of LSD and therefore share many similar properties to each other and LSD itself, 1V-LSD has been reported to have increased visual effects compared to its highly praised cousins — including 1P-LSD, 1cP-LSD, and 1B-LSD. Moreover, 1V-LSD was designed to circumvent draconian NPS legislation around the world — such as the recent amendment to the NpSG — and, as a result, it is completely legal in almost all countries, including Germany!
Given that 1V-LSD has a slightly higher mass than other prodrugs, a slightly larger dose is required. This is why we are offering 1V-LSD 150mcg blotters as our standard-dose blotters. Based on our initial tests, 150mcg of 1V-LSD is about equivalent to 125mcg of 1cP-LSD. Therefore, our standard 1V-LSD blotters are slightly stronger than our standard 1cP-LSD blotters – please keep this in mind!
