HOW WE GOT STARTED?
Imperial Kratom was founded in 2012 by Clara and Craig Plummer through their journey to the discovery of this beautiful plant. Clara herself was 5 years into struggling with addiction to opiates. It all started with the tragedy that Hurricane Katrina had inflicted on this family financially, socially, mentally and emotionally. They had lost everything and for Clara it was unbearable. She then had to get a surgery that resulted in being prescribed hydrocodone…the addiction began. After a nationwide opiate epidemic became apparent to our politicians, doctors began cutting people off of their prescribed medicines – Clara was one of them. She turned to the streets finding whatever opiate like pill she could find to numb herself. Eventually she admitted to her doctors the amount of opiates she was taking on a daily basis and in an effort to help her get off opiates, her doctor put her on Methadone. At that point she was on Medicaid and Food Stamps.
We have been in business for over a decade. Imperial Kratom has helped countless people get off of opiates and several other drugs so they could each live a happy and clean life being productive members of society. We try to be there for our customers in any way they need – be it through helping them find an alternative natural product or just listening to what a person is going through. We are here for support, a sometimes-needed hug or even a swift kick in the butt to stop you from going back to getting high.
