The first time i visited Erowid, I found the information I needed easily, and wound up spending over two hours reading so much more information. From personal experience accounts, history, warnings, related law, this has been my go to site for all information related to plant, or chemical substances.

While it may not be the most productive charity, one cannot deny it is indispensable for the service it does provide.

This is the most neutral and comprehensive drug information database out there. I have a big curiosity about drugs and whenever I need information about them I visit Erowid because I can trust it completely.

It's the greatest resource about chemical compounds in the web. It's very organized and it's thoroughly updated with revised information to lessen harm.

This website does the wonderful and potentially life-saving work of getting comprehensive, unbiased, scientific as well as experiential information on drugs to the public. If people do not have information, they will still do drugs, but they will not be as safe!

Since the moment I was young (high school), adventurous, curious and always exposed to various drugs between organic and pharmaceutical from my peers I wanted to naturally experiment with a few things presented to me or things I've heard through word of mouth.

I've always been curious to try new things and fortunately I'm a somewhat cautious person.

Through simple google searches to research the potential experiences I was hoping to try, Erowid repeatedly came up at a top result. I was amazed at how thorough and objective their site was laid out. Informative and I love how the personal experience section is laid out.

The admins moderate and give fair disclaimers on the personal experiences that people submit only to warn of potentially very irresponsible actions to not follow, but typically do not censor them to allow the original submitter to give their best recollection of their experience.

The structure and layout of the site between the proper dosing, typical times of affect, general pro, neutral and con effects of the drugs, etc are very accurate to my experience and just extremely informal.

I have not found any other convenient source that has this much vast information for those that want to educate themselves in potential experimentation in what is in the website.

Of course the information on that site is not going to be 100% consistent with every user, but just use common sense and do as much research as possible before diving into whatever experience you intend to go after.

I wished every recreational user knew of and used Erowid before taking the plunge into whatever it was they were experimenting with.

Much appreciation to those that created and continue to progress Erowid and all other similar sites.

This is a really great resource for learning about substances which affect the human body. They have educational material on many things, from coffee to cannabis. Erowid provides citation and sources for their statements.
