Patients with medical cannabis cards from Washington, DC, or any state with a functioning medical cannabis program may purchase at our dispensary. We recommend ordering online through Dutchie – we’ve had to minimize dispensary transaction times due to COVID19. At this time, you will upload your medical cannabis card and government-issued picture ID and place your order.

Please come to the dispensary to pay for your order and pick it up. We have curbside delivery and two pickup windows for those who prefer not to come inside the dispensary.

We have a same-day delivery program for DC patients only.

Takoma Wellness Center has engaged the services of Yellowjacket Security to provide an armed, professional guard on the premises.
Takoma Wellness Center visually records and monitors all building entrances and exits, parking areas, the rear area of the building immediately adjacent to the railroad tracks, and the inside of the facility (except for the restroom), including all limited access areas and areas where medical marijuana is stored and dispensed.

DC patients may appoint a registered caregiver through ABRA (this involves an application and a background check).  Registered caregivers with cards can pick up the medication for their registered patients. A DC 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 ABRA as the qualifying patient’s caregiver;
    • Not be currently serving as the caregiver for another qualifying patient;
    • Be at least 18 years of age; and
    • Have never been convicted of possession or sale of a controlled substance.
  • DC patients can have their medications delivered.
  • Caregivers must bring their own cards, their government-issued picture ID, and their patient’s medical cannabis card and government-issued picture ID.

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 eight (8) ounces per 30 days in any combination of strains. You are free to buy as little or as much of the eight 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.
