Best site around for drug information, specially psychedelic and other illegal drugs.
Since these kind of information are not generally available on the web, this website is a gem for everyone who wants to experiment with drug.
Please study your drug before administering it for the first time.

Maybe the most important website out there. I know that I could have made some bad mistakes concerning my health that were prevented with the information on it.

Whenever I have questions about plants and drugs and need a reliable source for user experiences, Erowid is my first stop. First hand user accounts, thoughtfully written for an audience which is expected to have an open mind, are an invaluable resource. Erowid really helps to cut through the propaganda and misinformation out there on drugs.

This website is one the few on the internet I feel I can trust. The information is unbiased and as factually sound as you can make it. There is so much to be learned on this website and it is a great resource for educating the public on matters they have been misinformed about

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.
