I'll be in NL for a couple of months maybe longer. I would like to ask those who live in NL or Belgium (I'll live close to the border) if it is legal in either countries to buy St John's Wort (Sint-Janskruid) over the counter and if so, if the potency is equivalent to the ones you find in the UK or USA. Somebody told me in mainland Europe the max potency allowed is very low. Of couse I know I can buy it online but I trust more buying it from a regular shop.
Sorry if the question is a bit too technical.

I know they sell Sint Janskruid over the counter in the Netherlands, but I don't know about the maximal dose. I think you'd best ask in a local pharmacy as soon as you arrive here. Using google, I found that the capsules they sell here typically contain 150-300 mg.
