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.



THC-A is raw cannabis. It is non-psychoactive. When heated (decarbed), THC-A becomes THC, which is psychoactive. For all intents and purposes, THCA and THC are the same thing. THCA is just the scientific name for THC in its raw, flower form. As soon as you smoke it, vape it, or cook with it, it immediately converts into THC. This is true of ALL cannabis flower… not just at Takoma. No exceptions!

We do not sell Delta-8 (in bold). Delta-8 is manufactured from hemp based-CBD. The amount of Delta-8 in hemp CBD is very low, so it is further converted synthetically (using chemical substances). Delta-8 products are untested, unevaluated, and unapproved for safe use in any context. Selling these products put consumers at risk.

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 December 7, 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 a variety of time frames. They are: 3 days-$10, 30 days-$20, 90 days-$50, 180 days-$75, and 365 days-$100

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.
