Why is 1D-LSD legal?


In short

1D-LSD and 1D-AL-LAD are legal in Germany because their chemical structure is not listed in the NpSG (New Psychoactive Substances Act), only the predecessors 1cP-LSD and 1V-LSD are included in this and therefore not legal. In Germany it must be stated exactly what is prohibited. 1D-LSD and 1D-AL-LAD are not listed in the NpSG and are therefore 100% legal.

Full explanation:

1D-LSD (1-(1,2-dimethylcyclobutane-1-carbonyl)-lysergic acid diethylamide hemi-L-tartrate) and 1D-AL-LAD are so-called LSD derivatives or are also referred to as prodrugs. This means that 1D-LSD is a modification of lysergic acid, which occurs naturally in the ergot fungus and is the basic ingredient for “conventional” LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide).

LSD has been banned in Germany since 1971 under the Narcotics Act. However, derivatives of LSD, such as the now banned 1cP-LSD or 1V-LSD, are not covered by the Narcotics Act. These are regulated in the NpSG (New Psychoactive Substances Act). This law defines exactly which substances are banned.

Two factors in the legal text are particularly crucial for the legality of 1D-LSD and 1D-AL-LAD. These are, on the one hand, the definition that derivatives with a molecular mass of up to 500u (g/mol) are prohibited and the list of cycloalkylcarbonyls, which are also prohibited.

1D-LSD circumvents these restrictions through its molecular mass of 508.5u (g/mol), which is achieved by adding half a tartaric acid molecule to the chemical structure.

The chemical structure of 1D-LSD also contains cycloalkyldimethylcarbonyl residues, but in the NpSG only cycloalkylcarbonyls are specified, not cycloalkylcarbonyls with additional substitutions.

Since the NpSG must explicitly state which substitutions are prohibited, 1D-LSD is not covered by the NpSG and is therefore 100% legal in Germany.

If the text of the law changes, this will not happen overnight, but must first go through all the legislative stages. In this case, we would inform you in good time and you would still have enough time for extensive research.
