What we offer

Through the Check your Chems, we make it easy for users to access key information about aspects that can influence their experience and health. We offer the possibility of knowing the composition of the substances distributed in non-regulated markets, their possible adulterants and the purity/concentration of the active compounds. This information is useful for people to make freer and more responsible decisions. The service guarantees personalized advice free of moralistic judgments, based on scientific evidence and respect for individuals.

It incorporates the approach to sexualities, diversity and sexual health to offer adequate care to any person, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, who uses psychoactive substances in sexual contexts. It also offers drug users from the LGBTI+ community a space of trust, without external judgments.
