Takoma Wellness Center is the premier medical marijuana dispensary in Washington, D.C.
At Takoma Wellness Center, we provide qualified, registered patients with a friendly, safe, and professional environment to legally obtain DC’s finest strains of medical marijuana.
We tailor an individual wellness plan to suit each patient’s specific needs, including best methods of ingestion and the blending of different strains of medical marijuana deemed most appropriate to relieve specific symptoms, all according to evidence-based best practices. Reassessing, monitoring and evaluating progress at defined intervals, as well as implementing wellness plan changes when warranted, we will always encourage patients to report to their recommending physician on a regular basis. Using recognized performance improvement methods, all patient services will be consistently evaluated and improved to ensure overall patient safety and satisfaction.
The Takoma area has become a center of progressive people and policies. We personally live in the neighborhood, have deep family roots here, and want to be a dynamic part of creating an even better community. Additionally, the area has become the hub of healing and wellness services in Greater Washington. By working closely with our patients and their families, our community’s residents, merchants, and public safety officers, Takoma Wellness Center will monitor the pulse of the people and always be a good neighbor.
