Dominique and Luis are the couple behind the family-owned store Flor de Luna Apothecary in Boyle Heights, California.

Flor de Luna Apothecary is a family-owned business catering CBD products and holistic healing. The couple behind it, Dominique and Luis, started the business after experiencing different medical problems in the family and discovering the benefits of CBD. In this episode, I sit down with Dominique and Luis and discuss the stigma surrounding CBD, the lesser-known history of cannabis, the challenges of opening a business during a pandemic, and healing spaces.
Flor de Luna Apothecary is a family-owned retail store and space bringing quality CBD products, holistic accessories, and healing services to the community of Boyle Heights. We believe taking care of our body, mind and general well-being is key to our collective healing journey. Our mission is to ensure that our community has access to the healing benefits of plant medicine like CBD for our bodies and our mental health.
Flor de Luna Apothecary is also a safe place for folks to shop for their plant medicine and learn more about the magic and benefits of cannabis.
"Both Luis and Nikki have long term plans for Flor de Luna. They hope to educate the community by offering “CBD 101” sessions in both English and in Español in order to help educate their neighbors about CBD. More importantly, to combat the stigma and dispel the myths around marijuana. Nikki asserts that “CBD has been an integral part of our family’s health, and we want to make sure that our community is well informed about this medicine. When the time is right, we will also be planning a variety of healing circles and events to promote physical, mental, and spiritual health.”
