Recently, this information has made its way online, most notably on Reddit. We've found 10 subreddits that showcase the trippiest and most candid info this site has to offer.

Despite psychedelics becoming part of popular culture, formal scientific research on the matter has been somewhat lacking. This, in turn, has led to users turning to open forums such as Reddit to read, and submit, anecdotal content about the effects and process of taking psychedelics, as well as how to grow natural psychedelics at home. In this article, we'll take a look at the top 10 communities related to psychedelics on Reddit today.
