What is 710, and Why Do We Celebrate it?

Certain dates are significant in the world of cannabis culture. Of course, there is the most universal, well-known holiday of 420, celebrated every April 20th. But what’s the deal with 710? Why do people make a big deal out of it?  

With summer in full swing, it’s time to get the down low (and high!) of it.  

The Origins of 710

So, to break it down 710 is essentially a code word for “OIL.” It’s a word used by folks who are into cannabis when they talk about concentrates, especially the ones used for dabbing. Dabbing is a way to enjoy delicious cannabis extracts known for their potency and effectiveness. These extracts, again called OIL, or wax, shatter, or budder, and have high levels of THC. 

The origins of 710 as a green-filled day of celebration are not as well-documented as 420, but it has become much more prevalent since the early 2010s as dabbing and cannabis concentrates gained popularity. While 420 dates back to the 1970s with roots in West Coast counterculture-check out the Waldos, 710 emerged more recently, reflecting advancements in cannabis extraction technologies and the increasing acceptance and legalization of cannabis. 

Significance of 710 in Cannabis Culture

710 is celebrated on July 10th each year as a day to appreciate cannabis concentrates and the culture around them. This celebration shows off the cool stuff happening in the cannabis industry and all the different ways you can enjoy cannabis. Concentrates give you a different experience from smoking flowers, with a robust, tasty, and often more efficient way to enjoy cannabis

How to Celebrate 710

You can celebrate 710 in a ton of ways. Here are a few ideas to help you enjoy this particularly stony summer day:  

Dabbing Sessions

To celebrate 710, many people enjoy dabs and get together with friends to try different concentrates. Dabbing, a popular method of consuming concentrates, requires specific equipment like a dab rig, a nail or banger, and a torch. The process involves heating the nail with the torch until it’s red hot, then waiting for it to cool slightly. Once the nail is at the right temperature, concentrate is placed on it, instantly vaporizing and inhaling through the rig’s mouthpiece. 

Exploring New Products

The cannabis scene is constantly changing, with new concentrates and extraction methods popping up all the time. The 710 holiday is a great chance to try new products like live resin, rosin, distillate, and terp sauce. Each type of concentrate offers a different experience with unique flavors, potencies, and effects. Local dispensaries and cannabis shops usually have special deals and discounts on concentrates around this time, so it’s the perfect opportunity to experiment and find your new favorite. 

Education and Advocacy

If you’re really into the cannabis scene, 710 is about more than just having a good time. It’s time to learn and speak up. Getting to know the different types of concentrates, how they’re made, and what they do can make you appreciate the whole process even more. And don’t forget, it’s essential to keep pushing for cannabis legalization and responsible use. That’s what makes 710 not just a day to have fun but also a day to learn and grow. 

Events and Gatherings

420 has its own cool festivals and events, while 710 is all about getting together and having awesome parties. These can be anything from small, private hangouts to big public events by cannabis companies or advocacy groups. Expect product demos, learning sessions, and great entertainment at these events. 

Creative Expression

The cannabis community is known for its creativity, and 710 is no exception. Whether it involves creating art and music inspired by the culture or sharing recipes for cannabis-infused edibles, there are numerous ways to express love for concentrates in a fun and creative manner. 

The Future of 710

The way we celebrate 710 is going to change as the cannabis industry keeps growing. With more places legalizing cannabis, the day will become more well-known, catching the attention of not just cannabis fans but a wider audience interested in the plant’s potential. This evolution promises a future of 710 that is even more vibrant and diverse. 

The ongoing conversation about cannabis legalization and regulation will impact how 710 is celebrated.
