Psychedelic Science at Berkeley
Who are we?
Psychedelic Science at Berkeley is an educational organization where students work to develop an understanding of the place that the careful use of psychedelics may have in medical, legal, and cultural contexts. Our objective is to create a space where those interested in psychedelic science can discuss recent trends in research, hold events to promote awareness and education, and help students network with professionals in this field.
If you are looking for free, confidential peer support during or after a psychedelic experience, please contact Fireside Project by texting or calling 6-2FIRESIDE (623-473-7433).
Substance Information
Salvum is a mobile-oriented website that makes finding substance/interaction information quick and easy in any state of consciousness (data sourced from PsychonautWiki and TripSit, listed below). It works offline (after visiting it once!) and is virtually indistinguishable from an app if you use the "Add to Home Screen" feature in the share menu of your smartphone browser.
PsychonautWiki is a community-driven online encyclopedia that aims to document the emerging field of psychonautics in a comprehensive, scientifically-grounded manner.
Erowid is a non-profit educational organization that provides information about psychoactive plants and chemicals. They document legal and illegal substances, including their intended and adverse effects.
TripSit is a community-driven harm reduction website that offers many services:
Online Chat for questions, discussions, and people ready to offer support to anyone that needs it
Factsheets which provide chemical information on many substances, similar to PsychonautWiki
Combination/Interaction Chart for quickly determining safe and unsafe substance interaction
Chemical Testing Kits
DanceSafe is a peer-based, harm reduction, non-profit organization promoting health and safety within the electronic music community. They sell fentanyl test strips and 9 different chemical reagents which can identify adulterated substances and help you make more informed decisions.
Another option is Bunk Police, although they are for-profit.
