About Tripsitter

Tripsitter is an educational resource exploring the safe and responsible use of psychedelics.

Like having a tripsitter watch over your experience, our goal is to provide guidance and support in preparation for your psychedelic journey.

We believe no substance is inherently good or bad — they’re just chemicals, natural or unnatural, that exist in the world. It’s our relationship with them and the way we interact with them that can be either good or bad. 

Psychedelics have a lot to offer in terms of mental and physical health — but only when used responsibly and with the right integration. Our goal is to provide trusted, well-researched content to help our readers understand how these substances work and how to use them safely for health purposes and personal growth.

The late Timothy Leary said it best

Psychedelic drugs cause panic and temporary insanity in people who have not taken them.

Our goal is to provide the resources necessary to demystify these substances and give our readers the necessary tools to use them effectively.

Join us as we explore the wonderful world of psychoactive substances and how they can be used to facilitate optimal health, self-growth, productivity, and more. 

Who Are We?

Our ever-expanding team of psychonauts, scientific researchers, medical professionals, and philosophers have been working hard to put together the Tripsitter project.

Collectively, we have over a thousand hours of combined psychedelic experience; we’ve read hundreds of academic articles and spent countless hours discussing philosophy and human health.

Editorial Integrity

Tripsitter is committed to producing content that meets the highest standards of accuracy, fairness, transparency, and authenticity. Our goal is to educate, entertain, and inform our readers.

We obtain our information from peer-reviewed academic research, real-life experiences, and by consulting with subject-matter experts.

Although verified facts require no attribution, we identify sources of less-than-obviously factual information in most circumstances.

We welcome complaints about errors that warrant correction, as well as suggestions for further clarification.

Feedback may be directed to feedback@tripsitter.com.


While we’re strong proponents of the use of psychedelics for the sake of health, personal growth, and development — in no way does Tripsitter or the Tripsitter content team condone nor approve of the use of illegal substances.

Our website serves as a source of information involving the use of psychoactive substances for healing and a means for harm reduction in those who aim to engage in psychedelics. However, we urge you to understand and abide by your local laws.
