Takoma Wellness Center is Washington DC’s award-winning cannabis dispensary.

We were the first medical cannabis dispensary in America’s capital when we opened our doors on August 1, 2013. The world has changed since that day; our commitment to your health hasn’t.

Community, Family, Care, and Washington DC’s Highest-Quality Medical Cannabis


Our Mission is Personal

Our founder’s parents discovered the benefits of medical cannabis in the 1970s, at a time when the plant was stigmatized and misunderstood. They consumed cannabis to address personal health issues, but prohibition was a roadblock to easy access. Their experience is why we’ve made it our mission to provide consumers with the highest-quality cannabis products. It’s also why we’re committed to building lasting customer relationships.

Your donation to Takoma Wellness Center’s Tzedakah Boxes (Karma Jars) will benefit Takoma Park’s Tommy’s Pantry, named in honor of the late Tommy Raskin, who was known as an extraordinary example of kindness, grace, generosity, and humility. Tommy’s spirit will carry on in many ways, including in this work where neighbors look out for one another. His belief in ensuring human dignity remains the cornerstone of our organization.

Since March of 2020, Tommy’s Pantry (formerly Takoma Park Middle School Cluster Food Support) has been collaborating with PTA leaders, school personnel, and local government to address pandemic food insecurity among our Takoma Park and Silver Spring neighbors. As the need continues, this support network has developed into grants from and partnerships with agencies including Manna Foods, Adventist Community Services, Montgomery County, the City of Takoma Park, and the Takoma Foundation.

The additional generosity of our donors and volunteers enables us to distribute shelf-stable food, produce, and healthcare/hygiene products (common household items families cannot purchase with food stamps) to more than 300 local families experiencing hardship 4-5 times each month. These wellness bags, in addition to the shelf-stable food boxes and produce we offer, bring joy, comfort, and relief to so many local families through the power of supporting your neighbor. Families from all walks of life have joined this effort, resulting in a community where residents feel seen and supported, even in their darkest hour.


Effective Saturday, April 1, 2023, DC patients and caregivers must have a valid registration to purchase medical cannabis from a licensed dispensary in DC.

Registration fees for DC residents are waived through Thursday, April 13, 2023.

Due to the pandemic, DC patients and caregivers have been permitted to use registrations that lapsed on or after March 1, 2020, to purchase medical cannabis.

DC residents are strongly encouraged to apply online.

Online applicants receive a digital registration immediately upon applying that may be used to purchase cannabis from a licensed retailer for up to 30-days while their application is processed.

Approved applicants are mailed a physical registration valid for two (2) years from the date of issuance.

Non-DC residents with a valid registration from a medical cannabis program in a jurisdiction extended reciprocity may continue to use their registration to purchase cannabis. The complete list of states and territories extended reciprocity is available online.

Alternatively, non-DC residents may register for a temporary patient registration valid for 30-days. The fee is $30 per valid period.

There is no limit to the number of times an individual can register, but they must submit a new online application and pay using a new custom paylink each time. Previously used paylinks cannot be reused.
