This subjective effects index exists to serve as a comprehensive map of the subjective experiences that can occur under the influence of any and all psychoactive substances.

The effects identified here are accompanied by detailed descriptions of how it feels to experience them. These are written in a formal and standardized writing style based on phenomenological observation so as to avoid reliance on metaphor or analogy. The terms and descriptions strive to use language that is as simple and understandable as possible. This is done in the hope that these breakdowns will eventually serve as a universal terminology set that enables people to fully describe and share their subjective experiences.

The effects are separated into over 200 distinct components which are organized into categories based on which sense they affect and their behavior. Many of these are further broken down into leveling systems, subcomponents, and style variations that can occur across different substances. Detailed replications in the form of image and video examples are included wherever possible to supplement the text descriptions.

The content within this index is based on the collective experiences of our contributors.
