Erowid is undoubtedly one of the longest running and most reliable sources of information about medications, pharmaceuticals and other mind altering substances. Untouched by corporate interests, it's served in its purpose honestly and faithfully since the dawn of the internet and deserves all the praise I can muster.

Sources are reliable, many one of a kind. Sincerity of management to provide helpful and accurate information. Personal experiences are shared and with much detail and honesty. I have benefited from articles read here and return to find information as it comes to my mind. I will contribute when possible as I can afford to.

Reviewing Erowid and tweaking the story so my personal experience colors my review, I defer such a task to a time when my preperation us suffucient for productive involvement by you, the reader, and by me, the contributor. But Erowid has a huge amount of useful resourceful data unlikely to be found elswhere in a ocmphrehensive and onest presentation. This is an excellent web site and it is obvious the care and hard work which keeps this site such a wonderful resource to all persons if or if not the individual is directly influenced by drugs. My learned opinion!

Erowid

Has always been the wiki-thority on entheogenic and inebriant experiences, for myself, and for everyone I know who is an avid researcher.

The beauty lies within simplicity. This is why it has been so easy to bring so many into a fairly solid knowledge of the experiences they wish to understand! They are reading about people, just like them, who are living their lives to advance the knowledge of our Human Race! What greater calling?

I will *always* go to erowid as my first and final authority on Drug Experience and culture, considering they at Erowid have been so kind (read "professional) as to include some of the most highly regarded scholarly efforts on the subject of "drugs".

Erowid is a fantastic resource for knowledge on the effects, potency, dosage and risk reduction of thousands of drugs and medicines. It is important because a lot of the knowledge out there is propaganda designed to steer people away from a lot of these substances. The knowledge is vast, ranging from linked studies to harm reduction info, and experience reports.

Knowing about the value inherent in certain plants and fungi is the PRICELESS. It's getting easier to find 'garden' variety knowledge, but sometimes more is needed for healing. This sight has been providing this wonderful resources for a decade or so, and I have been repeatedly grateful that they have.

Erowid is such an interesting and informative site. I love reading the reports of people's experiences as it provides non-judgmental insight into many different types of drug use.

There is SO MUCH damn information on this site concerning drugs, spirituality, consciousness...and I mean that in a good way. This includes cited factual information, personal experiences, anecdotes, concerned warnings and so much else.

An incredibly well rounded, helpful, informative, and interesting source of information. You can see how dedicated and professional the collaborators of the site are, not to mention that it is nonprofit.

I feel like the intense passion behind nonprofit organizations like these is the only passion that could create such a great product.

My quality of life has been immeasurably improved by Erowid. Like it can see like a specialist site at times but I've never submitted anything to the site, just read, I'm not the "usual" clientele but I also suspect I'm part of a quiet majority who get a lot out of Erowid's resources, had my ass saved my the info and experience there, without being a regular face around those parts. The openness of the resources really speaks to the public (not exclusive to the regulars) service that's done by cataloguing the info available there.

erowid.org is a phenomenal website that has saved lives and guided factual and researched information to hundreds of thousandths. I have been using this website for years to learn about substances and erowid has definitely helped me to a great extent.

Seriously, I'm pretty sure this website has helped save lives. I fully believe people should understand what they're doing, what they're introducing into their body, and what the consequences of doing so will be. Erowid not only provides scientific data on a massive range of chemicals, plants and herbs, but also lets users write personal reviews of their experiences. Cautions, warnings, good times and bad can be found here, and I would highly recommend everyone to visit this site before trying something new.
