It’s almost 710 Day, which means it’s time to celebrate all things cannabis culture. A separate holiday from 420, the day that’s become ubiquitous with cannabis around the world, 710 day is also known as “Dab Day.” 710 celebrates the cannabis industry’s ability to innovate and create new and novel forms of cannabis products, most specifically concentrates. So grab your vape pen, your dab rig, and your favorite concentrate from Chronic LB. We’ll be celebrating with discounts, so stock up and enjoy the holiday!
What is 710 Day?
“710” spells OIL upside down, and this holiday is meant to celebrate all things concentrates: Shatters, waxes, oils, hash, diamonds, rosins, resins – you name it. Celebrated on July 10th, this day has grown to be the second most celebrated weed-related holiday with many dispensaries around the country offering discounts on concentrate products.
Though the holiday’s origins are unknown, 710 began to attract attention when a group of people sought to popularize concentrates and their usage. When LA Weekly published a short piece called "710 is the new 420" in July 2013, the phrase became widespread. That year also saw the birth of the first official 710 event, The 710 Cup. Ironically, this festival didn't actually occur on July 10; it was postponed until July 12-14 because 7/10 fell on a Wednesday that year.
Dabbing the Day Away
As legalization spreads, “dabbing” is becoming a more popular consumption method. If you haven’t explored the wide world of weed concentrates quite yet, this is a great time to do it. There’s a large variety of concentrates available today, all offering different potencies, flavor profiles and effects.
Dabbing is a modern form of cannabis consumption that’s popularized in recent years. By utilizing a tiny spoonful of cannabis extract flash vaporized on a super-hot surface, the quantity of cannabis consumed is increased and the effect is stronger and quicker. Due to the instantaneous onset, it’s become a beneficial method for medical marijuana patients, or anyone seeking fast relief with more concentrated doses.
The celebration of 7/10 was rather demanding in the early days of cannabis concentrates. Dabs, for example, are usually taken using a dab rig, which requires a dab tool/wand, torch or nail, and other materials. However, because of the growing popularity of vape pens and portable dab vapes, it is simpler than ever to celebrate and consume concentrates, so don’t worry if you’re not keen on purchasing a super sophisticated dab-rig.
