Reviews for Erowid Center

Rating: 5 stars  

Erowid is an incredible source for reliable information.
There have been times where I had been completely misinformed by other sources.
Erowid is not only filled with accurate information, but also vast amounts of personal accounts for multiple substances. There have been instances where had I not gotten the correct information on one thing or another, I could have suffered terrible unwanted, and often unknown to me, side effects.

The gist is that the people over at Erowid have come through for me on numerous occasions. I would highly recommend a look at the information they give before using any other source.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I had to, maybe tweak the layout.

Erowid is a fountain of knowledge, Information, experiences and a portal for like-minded individuals to express and share their views. Without the content of this great non-profit organisation there would be a lot of uncertainty and misunderstanding amongst people all over the world. Now and hopefully for many years to come Erowid will provide and be the number one platform online.

Erowid is an extremely informative catalogue of information that's helpful and well organised. I have learned a lot from Erowid about psychoactive substances, clearing up myths and rumours that run as "truth" to many people. Erowid plays an important role in informing the public on, along with demystifying, psychoactive substances.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Update the website to look a little more modern. The layout looks like it was made 10+ years ago and left unchanged. The layout isn't bad, but it doesn't have the welcoming openness fuelled by a screen of white space that the sites of today have. This is, however, only an aesthetic issue, if funds can only be devoted to more information OR "looking pretty", I'd rather the information.

Erowid is the best website for anything you want to know about psychoactive substance. It is accessible, comprehensible, and is fun to read. Unlike drug information from the government, Erowid has information about drugs for both the bright and dark side. You get to know how amazing, astonishing, beautiful a drug experience can be, and you also know how bad a bad trip can turn out. I recommend everyone to visit Erowid and learn what drugs this earth has to offer.

Erowid is helpful to me as both a writer and drug law reform activist. For my stories, I am able to read accurate reports of experiences from their Experience Vault, and the dose charts are extremely important for harm reduction in those partaking in these substances.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Organize a drug re-education program to correct all of the misinformation that is disseminated in today's society, and explain harm-preventive manners of going about substance use. Sadly, this cannot become a reality until the organization has considerably more funding available.

I have been reading erowid for many years. I have given them around $400 over the years. It has been inestimably less than value received.
