- Top Rated
As of 2017, Erowid is one of GreatNonprofit's top-rated non-profit educational organizations for the sixth year in a row. Check out some of the great reviews we've gotten from the public.
- Maximizing the Value of Experience Reports
We're working with the California Institute of Integral Studies' psychedelic therapist certification program to provide a volunteer opportunity for students. Students can join the Erowid crew in reviewing submitted experience reports. They'll read about LSD, MDMA, psilocybin, ayahuasca, & ketamine, and learn about the psychological and physical effects of substances their clients might use.
- Psychedelic Research
We've increased our work with researchers and scientists. We provide editing and feedback to improve surveys and scientific papers. We also help researchers find enough qualifying participants to delve into narrow topics exploring the benefits and harms of various substances and practices. We're co-authoring several upcoming articles, including a paper with psychedelic researchers at Johns Hopkins.
- Conferences and Events
Erowid has participated in a number of conferences in 2017. Most notably, Fire and Earth were invited to and took part in an expert working group on state-of-the-art definitions of consciousness titled "Technology and Consciousness", held by Stanford Research Institute.
- Drug Checking
Our lab drug checking project EcstasyData continues to be the only public testing program in the US and one of the world's leading labs for new drug analysis. We've been increasing our collaboration with European partners, publishing their testing results alongside our own.onferences.
