How to test quality of drugs? The best method to avoid the risk of psychoactive substances is to not use them at all, but this is not always possible. Drug purity tests are one of the most effective methods of harm reduction. Publicly subsidized programs for anonymously checking the composition of substances operate in various […]
Cocaine is a substance where we ask not whether it has impurities, but how many. Some of them increase toxicity, for example, lidocaine, levamisole, or stimulants such as meth/amphetamine or even caffeine. Others are entirely accidental, so they have no known interactions, for example, random pharmaceuticals from cold remedies to antimalarial drugs. Yet others are […]
How to detect fake LSD? LSD as the most commonly known psychedelic lysergamide is often replaced by dishonest sellers with fakes. Risks of these replacements vary. Some cause psychedelic effects, but burdened with additional undesired effects. Other might cause effects subjectively indistinguishable from LSD, but without a fully known safety profile. Rest might not contain a […]
How to detect caffeine in amphetamine, cocaine, MDMA and other substances? Caffeine is one of the most common adulterants found in psychoactive substances. According to EMCDDA reports most of amphetamine in Europe contains mostly caffeine, similarly to most of cocaine. It is mostly found in stimulant drugs, but also in for example ketamine. Caffeine alone is not […]
How to test LSD derivatives? LSD derivatives such as 1B-LSD, 1cP-AL-LAD, 1cP-LSD, 1cP-MiPLA, 1D-LSD, 1P-LSD, 1V-LSD, AL-LAD, ETH-LAD, and LSZ are currently legal in many countries and increasingly popular. It is widely assumed that these compounds turn into LSD upon metabolisation (ingestion), which is why their effects are often considered to be nearly indistinguishable from the […]
LSD gel tabs (also known as windowpane) are more tricky to test than other forms of LSD such as blotters, pills or crystals, because they contain more filler (carrier) substance, and because that substance itself can cause inclonclusive results. With gel tabs the typical LSD tests (Ehrlich reagent and Hofmann) are known to cause false negatives or […]
We checked whether the Hofmann test, generally used to confirm the presence of “acid,” could be used as a reagent to test the amount of LSD. It turns out that yes, so when you buy a PRO test for identifying LSD you get a free test for quantity.
INSTRUCTIONSHow to detect meth/amphetamine mixed in MDMA? If a sample is adulterated and contains more than 1 ingredient then reagent tests usually can only indicate or rule out presence of an ingredient with the darkest color change reaction. That is because multiple reactions happening at the same time will most of the time blend together. What […]
