Erowid is my favorite online source for psychotropic substance information. They are very informative and they encourage safety. There is no other website that thouroughly examines each substance, as does erowid, I am happy that they exist and that I found them when I needed them most. Much Love!
Any time I need information that's impartial and objective, curated by those who have taken the drugs themselves, I go to Erowid :)
Very necessary node of informational connection. Used many times to safely navigate the unregulated Market that is, the "war on Drugs "
EROWID has been my go-to source of scientific and non-scientific information on psychedelics and other various substances that have allowed me to redact my own scientific papers for years. Their amazing database and forums are a unique place to find information on set and setting and risk reduction.
Since the very beginning of my chemistry career I have intrusted this organization's data with only the greatest of regards. It has been a staple of educational, for which stood the test of time, and with such, was a catalyst for innovation for a great entourage of new minds to be formed. Not only do they provide a balanced force to such a controversial area of discussion, but they have done so wonderfully for over 20 years. My deepest respect goes out to them!
Erowid is a long-standing valuable resource for harm reduction information and general information regarding psychoactive substances. Their experience reports and harm reduction information provide personal accounts of drug effects and allow those who are going to use drugs to understand the possible adverse reactions with other drugs, proper dosage, and other possible side effects and issues they may encounter. Risky drug use will never completely go away and erowid provides life-saving information that should really be provided by institutional health organizations and governments
Great website with very educational information. Been using erowid for studies of diffrent substances for years now. Only place I'll ever go to look up something. 10/10
Such a wealth of knowledge and personal experiences across a huge variety of topics. I've referenced this site for years.
Absolutely amazing resource. Trusted and true information available on the internet for over 20 years.
Very useful project, which has probably saved quite a few lives during its existence!
The best and most important website/organisation in public drug research and harm reduction. Truly one of the most valuable nonprofit organisations if you believe at all in the importance (from a clinical or spiritual view) of mind-altering drug use.
I work in the pharmaceutical industry, and you might be surprised by how many of my peers value Erowid too.
I think I've actually rated Erowid before, but just in case I didn't I'll make sure. Simply put, there are few, if any comparable resources, online or off. Erowid's comprehensive and diverse collection of information on psychoactive substances has helped me and the people i care about explore psychoactive substances with eyes wide open, forearmed and forewarned.
Having subjective data available, combined with the crowd-sourced experiences creates a resource which is both credible, and deeply people-focussed. This is what harm reduction should be.
Helped me learn the dangers of recreational drugs and helped me make better choices
Without the collective knowledge of the masses which use this informational outlet as a form of learning what is needed to know , and the total aspect of reading personal reports on the said topic at hand resulted in forming my current mindset. I know God is real just by the fact alone one could climb an abyss negativity from certain things and usage of substances but to KNOW what proper dosage, time intervals, and all out experiences right at the tips of our finger tips tell me in and of itself .. ask and you shall receive, and I was able to conquer addictive patters/behaviors. I danced in the dark , and found the light through the collect community we call ourselves.. Erowid.com peace love , and happy trails .. don’t wait to read that article you knew you had access to .. don’t be afraid to read something that you really already know yet do not wanna accept the fact we are God incarnate.. to merge the spirit with the rational mind / methods learned from our collective has literally.. shifted my reality . In the best way possible . Thank God. Hallelujah..
So accurate, rigorous, meticulous, honest... it's a database we all need
Erowid has been the most prominent source of information regarding mind altering substances for me and the people around me. Information is verifiable and when it isn't, the dubious nature of the information is clearly and openly stated. The site is caked in beautifully curated vaults of important information regarding a plethora of molecular compounds. Great resource that supplies harm reduction for the information hungry experimenter.
One of THE best sites for drug info. Lets you share your own experiences and warn & advise others on what to do and what to NOT do when using substances. Helps you keep as safe as possible while using substances. This website has helped me a lot to know what to expect, what dosage to use and what to avoid so I don't accidentally hurt myself. The internet needs sites like these to help spread knowledge on drug use.
Erowid is an incredible online resources for anything related to mental and physical help relating to pharmacology. I started using the website when I was very young and very curious about that world, and it provided me with in-depth, personal accounts of the experiences I was curious about, and in some cases, longed for. Had I not discovered this resource, I believe that I could have really hurt myself, lacking guidance, contextual knowledge, and maybe some common sense. Erowid delivers information and personal accounts of human experience that effectively de-stigmatize the human relationship to substance, and frankly, in my experience, acts as far more of a deterrent than a catalyst for participating in those behaviors. If one does choose to participate, Erowid provides resources that educate and (hopefully) ensure safer practices.
Erowid is a goldmine of useful information for anybody interested in psychedelics or recreational drugs; the site offers an abundance of information for educational and harm reduction purposes.
I, only, wish the website's facilitators would update it's User Experience (UX).
Erowid is one of the best and most trusted databases of information on psychoactive substances in the world. They are an invaluable resource for aiding adults in making safe, informed decisions. When it comes to obscure substances or combinations of substances, Erowid is the largest and most trusted--and oftentimes the ONLY--available source of information. They have been pioneers in education and harm reduction my entire life.
Really helps you figure out what drug is the best for you if you need it. Everyone is different, so seeing the experiences can help you figure out if something may or may not be for you. It's nice seeing the BAD and the GOOD! Very informative website that I've used since I can remember....10/10 would recommend.
Erowid offers informative and safe resources for those looking to engage in self exploration or recreational drug usage. Rather than stigmatizing, this website encourages safety of the user and provides a platform for folks to share their own experiences with substances. I have learned quite a bit about chemistry and neuropharmacology from this website. My only gripe is that the layout of the website is reminiscent of the 2000s era but that is a small complaint.
Good store world ....................................
Judgment free and accurate information shared in a way to reduce harm. People are fast to judge but they literally save lives.
I've always used Erowid to find awesome, accurate information about drugs.
This website is simply a gold mine of useful and quality information on everything related to drugs and psychoactive substances. The harm reduction info provided by Erowid is invaluable, and the vaults are an awesome way to discover and understand the effects of various drugs (or combination of drugs) without having to take them. The richness of the vaults is extraordinary.
Without comparison, Erowid has collected more necessary, life saving information than any other nonprofit I have ever contacted. God bless Erowid.
Erowid has my undying gratitude. The founders are motivated by the dual purpose of education and safety. Well-meaning disinformation is dangerous and Erowid has provided an alternative for countless of youths and seekers.
This website has saved many lives by giving ACCURATE and HONEST information about things people will partake in no matter what they hear about them.
I love this site more than my husband! Jkjk but I really do love this site.
The most helpful, non judgmental resource that has proved reliable countless times through out the years!
THANK YOU EROWID TEAM!!!
I have been using your website for the better part of 15 yrs. I started coming in high school for the purpose of harm reduction and educating myself and others with your vaults of knowledge. I have donated in the past and I try to donate when I can. THe work you guys do is invaluable YOu guys are saving lives through education not discrimination. I come here first to research anything before i even think of letting it into my body. Not to mentions i Have probably spent more time reading on this website than any other source on the net.
Erowid has been providing accurately sourced information to me and my friends for more than a decade!
this organization has provided consistent, ad-free, and incredibly thorough and life-changing information on pharmacology and harm reduction. their community outreach is phenomenal and I know without a doubt they have had a positive influence on millions of lives over decades.
Erowid has been immensely helpful in educating me about different substances and how to use them safely and intentionally. My first exposure to the idea of harm reduction was with Erowid in the early 2000s. Its experience vaults are both entertaining and informative and I've learned so much about the psychedelic headspace and the realizations gathered by so many people over the years. The site is a living relic of Web 1.0 and all the substance-focused internet after.
Personally I do not take drugs, Im rather just an interested user who likes to read through all this info. Its a great source for educating yourself even if youre not taking drugs. This site is definitely worth reading through
Entheogenic drugs have proved extremely beneficial for my mental health, and without Erowid, I wouldn't have known how to handle them best, with reason and knowledge.
Very helpful and necessary, by far the best website on the topic.
Pretty cool and informative. Provides a lot of varied sources for various mind altering substances. Cool read if you have extra time to spare.
Erowid helped me quite a bit as a young adult and probably saved my life in many unknown ways. I was going to experiment with psychoactives regardless of what external forces told me otherwise, and having access to the information I needed to experiment wisely made all the difference. I have said no to drugs because of information I read on Erowid, and I have safely and properly dosed myself on other psychoactives using Erowid's resources. I utilize Amazon Smile to support Erowid because I firmly believe that people deserve access to information. I'm sure could have been another addiction or overdose statistic in my younger days but with the proper information I was able to make responsible decisions that I can look back on now and say I'm not sure I would have made if I was flying blind. Erowid is essential and most young adults should be aware of its existence.
Have used Erowid Center to stay informed and safe in my younger years. Today it is a great reference all the same, but especially something I recommend to others with questions. The unbiased reporting of individual experience is an approach that should be taken in more subjects to "empiricize" the anecdotal.
The most reliable and complete psychoactive-specialized encyclopedia in the world.
An amazing harm reduction website! People will always use/abuse drugs as long as the concept of drugs still has a place in this world, and erowid is a fantastic resource to keep people who choose to take drugs safe. They have been doing it for over 20 years now, without ads and completely free. I could not be more happy with this nonprofit.
Erowid. Saves. Lives.
I used do volunteering work for ex-heroin addicts with Hepatitis B. They have tried to go from methadone to suboxone. It's a tough journey and many of them relapsed or started using a different substance. As they did not speak English we had long sessions of me translating the stories to them. They always said that those meetings were eyeopeners to them.
It's true focus is harm reduction and education. It helps people make informed decisions about what they are choosing to do with their own body.
Erowid has saved countless lives. Not only by providing accurate and non-biased information on plants, drugs, chemicals, and other endeavors, but also by providing user experiences within those realms. Want to stay away from heroin or meth? read a story about someones life falling apart bit by bit. Erowid is a resource I will continue to support throughout my life, because in reality, thats what theyve done for me, and countless others.
Absolutely life changing. I have started being interested in drugs at a young age. I have started consulting Erowid in my little bedroom in Rome at 13, learning all that I could about drugs. Eventually, also thanks to the information provided by Erowid, I started experimenting later down the line, in a safe, conscious fashion. Erowid saves lives.
This is just THE best site. Nothing more, nothing less.
It's like a family to me every time i have a trouble ;) i come see my family read suggestions, do's & don'ts.
Erowid has prevented me and my friends from making poor decisions on multiple occasions. It is one of the only and most reputable sources for unbiased knowledge about the risks and attributes of drugs. Its
contributors are educated and its interface is user friendly, allowing people to give their own experience. Erowid staff even review each story individually to make sure it is not giving false information or promoting drugs. This is why Erowid is such a good foundation, it's built around keeping people educated and out of harms way. It really has our best interest in mind.
I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for this unparalleled resource and the value that it brings to my own learning and our collective consciousness. Accurate, informative, thorough and varied research and experience. Oftentimes also hilarious! Thank you to all involved!
An incredible and noble nonprofit that exceeds at spreading awareness of our world. They are truly working to make this world a better place for all.
A never ending source of precise information about natural and synthetic psychoactive substances.
Erowid’s vast amount of information and personal accounts of experiences has provided me with a plethora of details in understanding myself and my relationships with folks. The information provided here is invaluable. But that’s not all, it’s truly a joy to read and provides so many scientific and well-known sources that it is easy to spend hours reading fascinating documents and histories. The safety information provided here has no doubt saved hundreds if not thousands of lives.
Best information on psychoactives on the internet.
On a personal level, Erowid has been an indispensable wealth of knowledge for nearly half of my life. With the War on Drugs an ever more obvious failure and hope of global abstinence a pipe dream, Erowid is a shining beacon of education with the promotion of harm reduction in an otherwise underground, criminalized world.
Number one place to go for most substance information. I've been working with Erowid for years now, at school, home, for personal research or when experimenting. I don't have anything negative to say about Erowid, as it quickly became one of my favourite sites, generally. Right now I am writing a semestral work about entheogens' potential in neuroscience. Erowid is one of my sources, as always.
I count my discovery of Erowid among the most formative experiences I've had in my entire life. This website has provided an invaluable service by providing incalculable hours of informative learnings, harm reduction, entertainment, and opportunities to build empathy. I am forever indebted to the selfless community that has helped build and maintain The Vaults.
