Psychedelics information for everyone
Making information about psychedelics more widely available.
This website helps by providing you with a database and engaging essays on psychedelic research.
Database, context, essays
This website came to live from a need to understand what we (collectively) know about psychedelics. About how they work, how they could be used in conjunction with therapy, or to enhance our creativity. Other databases or search engines (e.g. PubMed, Google Scholar) can help you find something specific, but don't offer much context.
Blossom Analysis is unique by providing not only papers, but also extra context. This comes in the form of a mini-summary, notes on papers, profiles of authors, lists of influential papers (see our top 10 articles), and original essays.
All the work on Blossom Analysis links back to research papers and books. And builds another layer of information and understanding on top of this. This is done through a lens of critical rationalism. You can find out more about our worldview here.

Who is Blossom
Think for yourself
Our mission is making information about psychedelics more widely available. To speed up the adoption of psychedelics as a tool in therapy and self-development. We do this by providing different resources, from articles to book reviews, that bring together different perspectives about psychedelics. We aim to be critical, grounded in a rational and scientific worldview, yet enthusiastic voice for psychedelics.
This website is one of our free informational services. See all that we do at our company website and our worldview on our about page. Send us an email if you want to get in touch.
Blossom donates 20% of revenue to effective mental health charities, like Strong Minds.
Floris Wolswijk - Founder
Floris is responsible for most thing you see on the website. He is currently making this website as complete and ready for a 'version 1' as possible. In the meantime he is also looking to recruit others to help build out this information platform.
Floris has studied Psychology (2008-2012) at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. After finishing his Masters degree, he co-founded a start-up in a different field. Through first personal experiences with psychedelics and subsequently an encounter with the scientific literature, he fell in love with the psychedelics field. He hopes to play a small part in making psychedelics more widely available and being used both in medicine and for self-development.

Blossom is free to use and will always be.
