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.
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.
For over a decade I have been using Erowid as a great place to get accurate, and complete scientific information.
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!
This website is extremely helpful and one of the easiest places to find valuable info on harm reduction. I feel the information on the site is trustworthy and reliable.
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.
Helpful website with plenty of great information. I have been using it for years and hope to continue for many more to come.
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.
A great guide to everything drug related, immensely helpful and a great community.
An informative website that doesn't take a partisan perspective, but rather does its best to simply provide true information, backed by personal accounts.
Erowid is a wealth of unbiased information. Besides the flat out science of Pharmacology there's also plenty of entertaining articles. If you want the truth about drugs, then check it out.
Erowid is by far one of the best sources for these subjects of interest on the whole Internet. There simply are not any other of this kind that is for the public at large as these would either be very scientific-specific (only describing the chemical components, or write about the legal status but not anything else than that on that site) or one-sided in one or another direction (taking a stand on some issue). Their scope simply isn't available anywhere else on the Internet.
Erowid provides accurate, honest information about psychoactive plants and chemicals. No lies, no misdirection, no preaching - Erowid is exactly the type of service the world needs to stay safe, healthy, and informed.
This organisation educates the population so they can safely educate themselves.
Erowid is a website that literally has saved countless lives through spreading good information via both objective and subjective resources.
A fantastic source of information and an extremely useful resource.
1. Drugs can be dangerous, especially if you are uninformed as to their nature.
2. Generally, people will use drugs no matter what legal or health risks are present.
I begin like this because I believe the initial reaction to a group like Erowid would be negative, often times this type of group could be seen as enabling dangerous drug use. It is important to realize that Erowid plays a crucial role in our society, one where many among us are temped to experience various substances. Erowid provides the exact type of information necessary for risk reduction and in a format that is easily digestible and accessible. It is not likely that we will ever know the number of lives that Erowid has saved indirectly through its provision of this information, but there can be no doubt their impact has been universally positive and in some cases, life changing. In a world run by information, Erowid yields their vast arsenal of it to the people. This is the kind of organization that truly exhibits the sort of vigorous generosity that we would hope for from a nonprofit.
The only place to trust all your drug research and information to. Basically all legit information out there has been compiled and cited on Erowid. No bias either unlike most drug websites. Only information.
