This website is the collective data of all mind altering substances. The data they provide is very helpful and accurate. The best feature is the 1000's of experience reports, written by those who've experienced the substance's effects firsthand. One a personal note, this website has saved me from consuming substances that would not have had any benefit to me. "Knowledge is the power to make a choice" could be a good motto for this site!

The information provided is potentially life saving, and focused on harm reduction. Most people do drugs in their lifetime and having proper information on whatever substance that you are using is essential for safety. Erowid has undoubtedly saved the lives of many people.

Erowid is such an amazing resource to have. I remember when I first discovered it I was completely shocked to find there were such intelligible substance users (not abusers) whom shared all of their experiences and decades of knowledge and research and had it all compiled into one easily accessible webspace. Many, many substance users are completely ignorant and like to claim they know everything about a substance when in fact they know nothing. I once had someone tell me they took a hydrocodone pill with 325 mg of hydrocodone. I laughed, very hard. it was in fact a hydrocodone/acetaminophen combination. 325 mg acetaminophen and I believe 5 mg hydrocodone. 325 mg would have them dead. Anyway I am fortunate along with many other smart users to have this website available, I have learned much valuable information and if I come across a substance I am unsure of, I am able to look it up on erowid and avoid taking an unknown substance that I have no knowledge about. Also it has helped me avoid taking many substances that I would have likely not found enjoyable, it is great to have the experience reports available and to learn from others mistakes, although it seems most of erowid's users are quite intelligent. Erowid also posts contraindications, for example if an experience report talks about someone having driven a vehicle while under the influence, erowid's administrators will not that it is not wise to drive while under the influence of any substance. Thank you Erowid for your generous contribution to our community and for allowing us the resource to keep our experiences safe and pleasant.

Erowid is the most phenomenally useful website for information on any mind-altering substance, whether it be pharmaceutical, spiritual or recreational. It provides the most accurate, unbiased and helpful information to help you protect yourself and your friends from coming to harm from a substance. I would recommend this website until I couldn't recommend anymore.

This website has been apart of my life for many years. I have used the information on the site for many different avenues of my life. The experience and wealth of knowledge is invaluable. As a maturing adult without many reliable sources this site helped me find myself and place in the world. They have introduced me to the many pioneers and forerunners. This site is simply amazing. It was also quite nice to hear them speak at Sasha's service.

Very curative and curiously tempting even at 71 yrs. I sent it to my psychologist to read the street version of Ritalin's miracles.
