About the Initiative

Psychedelics can be Powerful Teachers

In our eyes, they deserve the highest amount of reverence. They have been used for thousands of years to explore the frontiers of human potential. Current research indicates a potential to generate unique kinds of positive growth and healing, when they are used correctly.

We are leading the transition towards approachability, safety, and quality in psychedelic use. Subpar experiences are not only negative for the user, it negatively impacts the reputation of psychedelics as a whole.

We believe today's psychedelic businesses such as those in the medical space can be too much focused on patents and profits, losing sight of the sacred aspects. There is a lack of psychedelic initiatives with the heart in the right place: built by and for the diverse psychedelic community. One that focuses on optimizing psychedelic journeys, also for 'healthy' people.

We build psychedelic tools for dedicated explorers. Finally providing an answer to the global use of subpar tools and techniques for preparation and integration.

 

It's time to change the status quo. The world is ready.

Respect the Ritual

We're setting a new quality standard for psychedelic use, by pushing the boundaries of what a psychedelic tool looks like. With an eye for the sacred, the safety, and the quality. We asked 'Why isn't a psychedelic ceremony more like a Japanese tea ceremony?'

 

We want to remove psychedelics from the closets of society. By making practical homages we recognize their potential benefits and pay tribute to traditional use, in a modern way. Rituals are vital for creating an optimal set & setting, and our products can help provide a safe(r) space.

Co-creation with the psychedelic community is our cornerstone. We started by connecting with thousands of psychonauts and experts on the internet. People from all continents gave input for a kit that optimizes the journeys for the user, from intention to integration. A kit with rock-solid guidance, tools, and free access to a support network. Together with you we continuously create new innovative psychedelic products that facilitate safe, respectful, high-quality use of psychedelics. 

Our first product was a complete kit for DMT that irradicates a long search for practical tools. It focuses on optimizing the user's psychedelic growth, lessening anxiety and chances of bad practices. Our new project focuses on a mushroom tea kit.

Friends from Amsterdam

We are Koen and Sebastian, two friends from Amsterdam. We are moved by a tremendous passion for these powerful tools. When we made a concept drawing of the Portalbox for Reddit, thousands of people wanted us to bring this into reality. That's when we decided to dedicate our lives to psychedelics and psychonauts worldwide. We called our startup 'Portier', meaning doorkeeper. And you are as much of an important aspect of this mission as a supporter and thus, co-creator.

Koen has been serving the world of psychedelics by assisting organizations like the OPEN Foundation (psychedelic research), SynthesisSpinoza (legal, medically supervised psychedelic retreats), and Mainline (drugs & health education). Sebastian's growing interest in psychedelics and their potential for personal and spiritual exploration led him to choose to work with non-profit foundations that work with indigenous populations of the Amazonian and Andean regions, protecting their freedom of pursuing their traditions with plant medicines like Ayahuasca.

We are unable to get the word out via a mainstream platforms and face constant bans and stigmatisation.

It's a tough journey and we’re reliant on word-of mouth.
