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.

Erowid is the de facto source of information for those who seek more information about drugs. It is a fantastic harm reduction resource, a place to delve into archives to learn all there is to learn about any drug you can think of. I have no doubt it has saved countless lives and helped many other people have safer, more beneficial drug experiences. Donate if you can, because Erowid NEEDS to stay around.

I've been visiting this site since the early days of the internet. They have had the most accurate, helpful information I've seen online. I also love reading the experimentation stories, sometimes they are very funny... and always informative.

Best site on the web for up-to-date, apolitical, fact-based information about drugs, drug use, and drug information. More and more people are turning to their tablets and phones for information.

Between the "War On Drugs: Just Say No!" and the "Everything is Fake News!" Sites very few sites have the depth or scope of information that would allow one to make educated choices. However, Erowid stands out precisely because it has that depth and scope of facts that are missing from so many others.

Far, far exceeds expectations. This is a 6-Star website and archival resource disguised as a 5-Star site. I found Erowid and bookmarked it somewhere in the mid-to-late 90's. It still sits at the top of my bookmarks concerning drugs, power plants, pharmaceutical history, cultivation, law, and persons of interest in the world of inner exploration.

Today I am sharing Erowid with a fellow member of a cannabis forum. He wants detailed info on mushroom cultivation and i know without even looking that I'll find everything he needs in the Vaults of Erowid. I myself have used the site's archives for learning more about specific entheogens as well as plain old cannabis.

It's extremely valuable to have a website that is detailed, accurate, and basically neutral in its presentation of facts concerning legal and illegal substances. Erowid has not succumbed to outside pressure to change anything that they want to say or present and has remained the preeminent website for a comprehensive and encyclopedic resource on drugs, plants, pharmaceuticals, law, and even the cultural aspects influencing the use of such substances. Besides, they're brave to do all of this in such perfect style considering our society in recent decades. Bravo.

I have spent countless hours reading through Erowid. I've learned so much about various chemicals and have been able to pass this information to friends and acquaintances for harm reduction. Many people do not know about safety precautions and Erowid has helped to educate them.

I love erowid. it's a fantastic sourse of information, and always the first website I check when I need hard to get info about any psychoactive drug. I've used it academically and personally, and I always find valuable information.

Can't thank Erowid enough for this unique and invaluable resource. I consider myself a 'Client Served' by Erowid.org since I routinely come to it seeking information, anecdata, and advice which I simply cannot get elsewhere. I am always rewarded with sane, thoughtfully curated documentation that is clearly a labor of love by all involved. This work deeply enriches and saves lives. Thank you!

Idon't usually post reviews or do this kind of mind-numbed cleaning you are all used to daily. so when I saw the option to reveiew erowid, I was thrilled. These guys have not only inspired me to be my own person. simply by doing their own thing. Plenty of places kind of do that.

but these guys saved my life on numerous ocassions when noone else was there for support. young people the world around use erowid as a reliable source of information to stay safe and smart about their recreational activities. I found out about erwoid when I was 13, 15years later as a father of 2. I really think this is one of the greatest human factories ever. if were going on farming humans, this is how to do it!

As history has shown, prohibition does not work as intended. With that in mind, Erowid brings a clear vision for harm reduction and education that is sorely lacking in many official channels. Humans have always, and will always explore their world, inside and out. Erowid proves to be a welcome guide to safely exploring these inner spaces when consenting adults choose to do so. Earth and Fire are truly advancing the cause of safe experimentation and personal responsibility and I am grateful for their work.

Erowid is one of the best places to get information regarding psychoactives. This information has helped me and many others. Most other resources do not offer the same in-depth information about psychoactives that Erowid does.

This is by far one of the single most important resources for harm reduction on the internet, without it many lives are at risk. I have used it personally hundreds, if not thousands of times researching the intended effects of particular substances friends, family , myself or even strangers have ingested.

Without this i would have potentially overdosed many times.I believe instead of the war on drugs harm reduction is where we should be focusing.And i believe erowid is a good start on harm reduction.

Erowid is the most comprehensive, accurate resource for drug/pharmaceutical information I can think of. It's my favorite non-profit and my favorite drug-related website. Insanely valuable for harm-reduction, and its vaults of user-submitted information about certain substances is wonderful.

All the time, every second..every hour people are doing drugs. This site is a LIFE SAVER.
They don't ask for money they just save so many lives by giving information, harm reduction (the only way you win against drugs) letting other people tell their stories and you really learn from them and you keep you and the people you love safe. All thanks to this website. It's my favorite if you haven't noticed.
