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.
This organization is not a simple encyclopedia about drugs. It is not a forum or website were drugs are sponsored as positive. It is a complete guide full of information, data, statistics, reviews, harm reduction advice to the medicinal, spiritual or recreational use of psychoactive substances. It lists with complete sources all the negative and positive impact of these substances. I'm sure if anybody who has ever used or will ever use psychoactives had visited and learned what he could on this website, there would be no deaths, probably even no addictions. Drug education is one of the most important issues of our generation. I fully support and respect erowid for all the benefits it has brought me, my friends and many other around the world.
Erowid provides updated, rigorous, evidence based and experiential data concerning all psychoactive substances, either chemicals, ethnobotanicals or pharmaceuticals. It as, over the years, become an uncontested reference for users, researchers and academics, or other general publics. It as done more for people's safety and reduction of harm in this field, than many governments all together.
Provides life saving information which is normally hard to find or strictly unavailable. Allows people to make conscientious, informed decisions on drug use based on fact instead of myth or misinformation. A valuable compendium of knowledge ranging from scientific studies to personal experience reports to safety protocol. long live freely available uncensored information!
Erowid provides invaluable resources to planet Earth, part of Milky Way System. Who knows how many humanoids have been saved by proper knowledge and chemical education.
Most reliable website for drug information, expieriences etc.
Consistent good quality, updates and always online.
I have been using erowid.org for fourteen years and hope to see it continue it's mission.
The Erowid database, particularly the experiences vault, is invaluable information. I am not a drug user. Indeed, I work in the correctional system as a substance and mental health counselor. But the "war on drugs" Is comprised of ostriches with their head in the sand. Erowid helps people make informed choices - the pleasant effects, yes, but also the trainwreck deadly combinations. It allow me to better understand my clients. It allow me to have candid conversations about synthetics to avoid and potentially lethal combinations. Thank you, Erowid.
The most accurate information complied on psychedelics and all things alike;
Erowid is a site I've always used in the past to further my knowledge on drugs and how they work for mind expansion, now that I've expanded mine there still seems to be more to know, and Erowid still seems to be the site to inform me.
It has helped me in all of my personal botany studies,
and to aid some of my own family members from major drug addiction, and their friends,
by discovering plants in which could be used for drug withdrawl, or just to stop the drug in it's tracks completely. This site has helped me immensely in many ways,
I haven't found a groovier source in all of my studies.
Excellent resource for open, honest discourse on recreational drug use. An absolute essential service for anyone who wants to learn about a substance without wading through overwhelming bias and propaganda that most other sites contain.
This website is incredible. The information is incredibly accurate and always updated. The experience section has detailed reports from real users. Spreading information for safety purposes is important and sadly looked down upon by most.
