One of the most interesting and valuable parts of erowid are the experience vaults and the trip reports that are hosted within them. This particular feature of the site allowers readers to make up their mind without propaganda and manipulation about what they do and do not want to put into their bodies.

The trip reports by the readers of erowid are organized into numerous different categories -- making it easy to find specifically what you are looking for. These categories allow you to judge for yourself what you feel your body and mind may be able to handle, some examples are as follows:

First Times
Retrospective / Summary
Difficult Experiences
Train Wrecks & Trip Disasters
Addiction & Habituation
Glowing Experiences
Mystical Experiences
Health Problems / Issues

The creators of erowid, who I met at Burning Man, are intelligent, informed human beings. They are constantly gathering and sharing information in hopes of helping people make the most knowledgeable and safe decisions possible.
