The absolute best source for knowledge on pharmaceuticals, chemicals and anything that can alter a persons natural state. They've calmed my anxiety about a number of things. I don't know where I'd be right now without Erowid.

Erowid saves lives, plain and simple.

With just 4 full time "employees", this encyclopedia of drugs is the #1 option for all those who want to research about the substances they consume. No matter if they are stimulants, opioids, psychedelics, or even everyday drugs like tobacco, alcohol and analgesics, Erowid provides thorough and true information about pretty much any of the mind-altering substances curently known, and it's staff is constantly researching and digging info about new drugs that come into the scene.

In my personal experience, Erowid helped me ease fear about the comsumption of psychedelics like Cannabis and LSD, and helped me to correctly asses the kind of drugs that I was ingesting. I will go as far as to say that Erowid saved my life not once, but twice, just by providing me with information about the substances I was consuming. I avoided what could have been a lethal dose of 25I-NBOMe thanks to ts descriptions and warnings about 25I being sold as LSD. It also helped me to prevent a pretty dangerous combination of Alcohol with Benzodiazepines that could have been lethal.

Because of the current policy of the War on Drugs, this information is not easily found on other sources, and thus, the presence of an organization like Erowid that helps drug users to understand the substances they consume provides an invaluable service for drug users all around the world.

Erowid is hands down my nr 1 source I check up when researching a new chemical. Erowid is a great source of knowledge and their great quote:
"Know your Body
Know your Mind
Know your Substance
Know your Source"
tells the public to think for themselves

This website has helped so many people, myself included, make rational and well informed decisions based on real experiences others have had. This does not encourage drug use, nor does it discourage it, but it is a place of fact and experience.

Any time I need to know anything about and kind of substance I knew erowid had the information. Any info I felt was important I loved to share with friends to keep us safe. Without this website I could have done some pretty dumb stuff but the knowledge I gained kept my head on straight. Many lives have been saved by erowid I'm glad something like this exists.
