7/10 Holiday: What Is 710 All About?
710 is National Dab Day
That’s right; as cannabis products have evolved past the signature flower options, oils have gained a substantial following and it’s high time we gave them the day they deserve. The phenomenon was recognized in 2012 at the 7/10 Cup, but some believe it has even earlier origins than that. The concept is simple, though it may not be obvious at first glance – why 710? Well, if you take a look at the numbers “710” you’ll find that they closely resemble the word “OIL”. Upside down, that is. You can thank the more dedicated cannabis community members for noticing that one.
Cannabis Oils and Dabbing
For those who may not be as familiar with the concept of dabbing, here’s a little background: Dabbing involves the use of concentrated cannabis oil which is burned on a heated surface to create an inhalable cloud. When you breathe that cloud in, you feel the full impact of the oil very quickly. For this reason, it has become a very popular way to enjoy cannabis, especially for those on the go who don’t have the time to sit down for a whole session. Dab rigs can be both ornate and portable, making it easy to enjoy concentrated oils wherever you are, and whenever you like (such as on National Dab Day).
Technology has enabled manufacturers to produce pure oils on a large scale, and dabbing has opened up an opportunity for many enthusiasts who aren’t fussy about smoking flower or the mess, odor, and other signature characteristics that go along with it. Dabbing provides them with a more enjoyable way to take part and has opened up a new market for dispensaries along with it.
