Ok. I've got it.

You will find it here

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/38/schedule/2

Under class A drugs in the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Obviously I don't know whats in the substance that you are considering but if it contains Lysergide and it is not prescribed then it is prohibited in the UK.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
