“I would like to say that this Dispensary is so well run and the family is so nice they bent over backwards to help with all my needs. After looking at the other two dispensary's this is the place that i want to be at a true family atmosphere. The coffee and cookies help to soften you up after a warm greeting from the family members at the door. Stephine and Paula were great and Josh was soo helpful with getting what I needed and all of the staff was great there is so much more I could say but Ill wait till after my next visit.
Thank You Takoma Wellness”
“Without a doubt Takoma Wellness Center is the gold standard of what a Washington DC Medical Marijuana dispensary ought to be. This store is not only locally owned but you do business with the Kahn family daily when you enter the dispensary. They are the most warm and engaging people you could ever meet at a dispensary and and went a long way toward making me feel comfortable buying my cannabis in an actual store with a real receipt.
The price for quality can't be beat in the District. It's a shame that in DC you have to pick and choose, by loyal or leave, but even if I could shop at any of the District's shops I don't think I'd want to go anywhere else. I've always felt pretty good when I smoked weed but coming to Takoma was the first time I actually felt good about getting it.”
“First of all DC has a lot to learn about medicinal marijuana. Probably about 1/2 of the 6 or 7 strains I have tried in
the past few months are worth the price. Supply has been a constant issue lately and it's a real bummer. The vape oil is weak and the tincture is as well (for the price).
The staff is wonderful and the location is good but the selection, quality, and reliability all leave something to be desired. ”
“While I understand the politics going on with the grow facilities in the city, I cannot bring myself to spend the money on medication that is exorbitantly high for a product that is mediocre at best, i.e. 35% concentrates compared to >70% average in most places in Colorado/Washington.
I lived in Denver which is taxed just as high if not higher than DC, yet their prices remain wildly lower (even recreational is cheaper in Denver!!!!) and their product is also far superior. I don't buy the "blame the grower only" stance taken by some of the previous reviews.
I question whether or not this is truly a compassionate venture, rather than a calculated business opportunity taken advantage of by those who could afford it.
I probably will not return until prices drop, quality/quantity increases, and med laws change. Very disappointed.”
“I understand this is new dc but I think it could be handled better. I did not have a good experience. person at the desk was fairly rude (don't know they're name). Prices are not very compassionate. Also, selection keeps dissipating over the last couple months I've gone.”
My family and I founded Takoma Wellness Center to provide our patients with the highest level of care possible. To read of your negative experience is disheartening. Please except my personal apology, and know that your comments will be taken seriously.
Strains and prices will improve as more cultivators and product come to market. These challenges exist at every DC dispensary, and are beyond our control. Thankfully, they are also very temporary.

“5 Stars All Around -- Best In DC
Top notch customer service and atmosphere.
The inventory is completely decided by the licensed growers in the District, which are heavily regulated. Can't blame these guys when there's a slim menu because it is out of their hands. Write to the DC DOH and tell them as a medical patient, you want more choice and tell them to allow more growhouses.
When new menu items are available, Takoma usually does an excellent job updating their online menus -- unlike other DC dispensaries. ”
