Reviews for Erowid Center

A no-nonsense, non-judgemental goldmine of information for the curious. Has no doubt saved lives through providing practical information rather than "don't-do-it" advice which will simply be ignored by youngsters in any case.

Always my first choice when experimenting with my body, mind, and spirit! Always very helpful, non-biased information.

An absolute goldmine of information regarding psychoactive substances of all kinds. Many external links for further reading. Basics for what to expect, chemistry for those with a bit more knowledge for most common substances, and a wealth of personal reports from the occasional user to those struggling with dependency (whether through prescriptions or other less-than-legal aquisitions.) I personally believe it has saved my life by having a place to start with harder drugs other than word of mouth (DXM, Oxycontin, and to a lesser degree psychedelics.) Must read for anyone who wants to be halfway responsible with their drug use.

Erowid has helped me throughout several years of research and studying about psychoactives and psychedelic culture.
If erowid.com didn't exist, we would lose a great amount of knowledge about this ambiguous yet interesting and rewarding world. Please, keep it up guys!

It has without a doubt saved many lives throughout the years and continues to do so by providing accurate information in a non-judgemental way about drugs. The great thing is, you don't have to do illegal drugs to benefit from this website.

Reliable and incredibly in-depth source of facts without a hidden commercial or judgmental agenda. This non-profit is there for the public good and to make a difference, period. As trusted and credible as it gets.

The best source of informations that you can find on the entire web. Helps you to stay in the "safe side" when handling chemicals or plants.
Also teaches their powers in a scientific way that gives you info, pro's and con's and leaves you completly informed.
Thank you for your work, Erowid. You'll never know how man lives you saved and/or made better.

If every time we need factual, accurate, unfiltered information we had access to a source with the quality of Erowid the humankind would be in a far more advanced position in every field. Erowid stands as one of the best examples of transparency and reliability even though it deals with very complex data. I would recommend any professional, student, explorer or curious to pass by and check it. Very rarely you find high quality information that is also enjoyable.
Ditch the TV, come to Erowid.
