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.

A treasure trove of material presented in an unbiased, professional format. If I am looking for anything to do with psychedelics, my first stop would be Erowid Center

Erowid is most likely one of the best organisation that holds non-biased material relating to psychoactive substances and other forms of an altered state of consciousness. If anyone is looking for information regarding psychoactive substances; Erowid is among the best references for such a subject.

This site has taught me and many of my peers how to safely administer a variety of chemicals, plants, and drugs. For each page there is usually many third-party scientific studies that can confirm the information posted on the site. This site does NOT encourage drug use. Rather, it promotes harm reduction. I have no doubt in my mind that the Erowid Center has saved countless lives through the sharing of non-biased information regarding a myriad of substances.

This is an excellent source of information that should be available to anyone with questions. Educating the public with first hand experiences.

This has to be general knowledge to a new era of Humans. The capabilities of a human are limited by his own conscience fed by shady rules. Erowid in that sense is a true liberation of humanness.

When you have an empty void in your heart that can only be filled with drugs but are also an extreme hypochondriac, you'll come to realize that a site like Erowid is your best friend. I cannot express how many times this site has saved my life by informing me of the side-effects and/or complications of any drug I decide to ingest. Thank you Erowid.

Without Erowid Center, I personally wouldn't be alive, and I know that there are many others like myself, who have used drugs and had nowhere to turn for reliable and accurate information and experience reports, who would also not be around today without Erowid. Personally I have relied on their website for over 10 years. In that time, their archives have grown exponentially, while their mission has remained the same. No shaming, no self-righteous opinions, just facts and experiences for the people who need it most.

Carries a wealth of knowledge build by experts and it's community alike, over many years. Is and has been a consistent source of unbiased and fact based information about psychoactive substances, in a climate of extreme polarisation and bias. Never encourages drug use, but is a clear proponent for scientific, harm reduction strategies and policies.
