The Takoma area has become a center of progressive people and philosophies, healing and wellness services. Takoma Wellness Center encourages a holistic approach to wellness and, partnering with Takoma healing, nutrition, and wellness providers, will offer our patients a wide array of complementary health and healing services in the neighborhood.
We live in this neighborhood, literally a five-minute walk from the dispensary, and will be immediately available in any emergency. We are dedicated to sustaining and enhancing the local economy, not surrounding or far-flung jurisdictions. We have deep family roots here and want to be a dynamic part of creating an even better community. It is the perfect community in which to locate.
This location is ideal due to its proximity to the Metro Red Line Takoma Station (less than 150 feet and easily accessible by wheelchair), major bus lines and roadways, just blocks from Georgia Avenue and Piney Branch Road. Takoma Wellness Center is accessible and convenient to patients throughout the northern half of the District of Columbia, who come to the neighborhood because of TWC and the abundance of other wellness providers. We encourage our patients to shop and dine frequently in Takoma.
DC patients can appoint a registered caregiver, through the DC Department of Health, to act on their behalf.
According to the DC Department of Health a caregiver must:
- Be designated by a qualifying patient to serve as the person authorized, on the qualifying patient’s behalf, to possess, obtain from a dispensary, dispense, and assist in the administration of medical marijuana;
- Be registered with the Department as the qualifying patient’s caregiver;
- Not be currently serving as the caregiver for another qualifying patient;
- Be at least eighteen (18) years of age; and
- Have never been convicted of possession or sale of a controlled substance.
We can help DC patients and caregivers with their applications.
We can serve caregivers of patients in programs outside of Washington, DC, only when both the caregiver and patient are present at the dispensary.
Our staff will welcome you and check your medical marijuana card and government-issued identification. On your first visit, you will complete a cannabis questionnaire to help us understand your needs. Then, you will meet with one of our Patient Consultants who will help you make your selection, based on your unique needs and preferences. In the dispensary, you will have the opportunity to view the marijuana offered and learn about each strain’s particular profile and effects, both positive and negative. Feel free to check out our many books along with our extensive range of vaporizers, pipes, grinders, papers, cases and other accessories.
Purchases of medicine are limited to four (4) ounces per 30 days in any combination of strains. You are free to buy as little or as much of the four ounces as you wish.
We will be glad to offer information concerning both the medicine and our variety of accessories. Please let us know if you have a particular accessory you would like us to offer, and we will make every effort to obtain it.
Medical marijuana is medical grade, specially grown under “organic” conditions to make sure it is 100% pure, that no dangerous chemicals have been used, and that it is free of all contaminants. Additionally, it is tested for purity and the percentage of different kinds of cannabinoids.
