Ordering and sending hemp seeds, mycelia and spores containing psilocine (psilosin) or psilocybine

The Act on Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and Precursors thereof bans:

  • the growing of hemp (Cannabis sativa) for the purpose of obtaining a narcotic substance
  • the growing of mushrooms containing psilocine (psilosin) or psilocybine

Legal basis

The procedure for inspection of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors is regulated by the Act on Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and Precursors thereof

Hemp plants with the high content of tetrahydrocannabinol may have seeds containing small quantities of tetrahydrocannabinol which is the proof of the narcotic substance.

In the mycelium of mushrooms containing a narcotic substance psilocine (psilosin) or psilocybine there can develop small fruiting bodies of fungi that prove the narcotic substance content.

Varieties of cannabis which plants may contain tetrahydrocannabinol not exceeding 0.2% are allowed to grow for the purpose of receiving hemp fibre. Seeds of such varieties are packed into large packages, labelled as required and supplied with the certificate. Seeds of such varieties shall not be sold by the piece.
