Welcome to the modern world of cannabis culture, where the calendar is marked with holidays that celebrate our favorite plant. One such date is July 10th, more commonly known within the cannabis community as ‘710 Day’. Not as widely recognized as its counterpart, ‘420’, 710 Day, or ‘Oil Day’ focuses specifically on cannabis concentrates like oils, wax, and shatter. These products, derived from the cannabis plant, have rapidly become an essential part of the cannabis landscape and hold a particular significance to this day.

A Short History of 710 Day

The rise of ‘710’ can largely be attributed to the increasing prominence of cannabis oils and extracts. These are essentially potent forms of cannabis — like hash oil, wax, badder, budder or shatter — obtained through various extraction techniques. The consumption of these products, either through smoking, dabbing, or infused in pre-rolls, has transformed the way cannabis is enjoyed.

However, the origins of 710 Day are steeped in cannabis culture lore. Hip hop artist TaskRok, a noted cannabis advocate, is often credited with introducing ‘710’ into the cannabis lexicon through a song on his rap album. The number’ 710′, when flipped upside down, spells ‘OIL’, a nod to the cannabis concentrates. This discovery, coupled with the rising popularity of these concentrates, led to the association of July 10th with this celebration. Its presence was cemented through platforms like Urban Dictionary and social media, and the term has since permeated the cannabis community.

How to Celebrate International Dab Day

Traditionally, ‘dabbing’ — consuming extracts by heating them on a hot surface and inhaling the vapors through a dab rig — has been the mainstay of this celebration. Vape pens, a modern alternative to dabbing, are also widely used. 

Events like National Dab Day, Oregon’s Camp Sesh, and a host of local dispensary events have taken the celebration to another level, uniting the cannabis community in festivities. And for those looking to mark the occasion, a range of recommended cannabis products, from oil to distillate to diamonds, sugar wax, and rosin, can elevate your experience.

If you’re looking for a quick list of what you’ll need to celebrate 710 Day, we’ve got one for you! For the basics, you’ll need the following:

  • Dab Rig: Also known as an oil rig, is a device used to vaporize cannabis concentrates.
  • Nail or E-nail: This is used to heat the concentrate to create vapor.
  • Dabber: The dabber tool is used to pick up and apply the concentrate onto the heated surface of a dab rig.
  • Torch: A butane torch is used to heat the nail (or heated surface) of a rig.
  • Carb Cap: A carb cap covers the nail and helps maintain temperature, allowing for better vaporization of extracts.
  • Vaporizer Pen: If you’re looking for a more discreet way to consume your concentrates, a vaporizer pen is the perfect option!
  • Concentrates: These come in various forms, such as wax, crumble, shatter, budder, bubble hash or distillate.

Safety First, Responsible Consumption Second

As with any substance, responsible consumption is key when it comes to cannabis. Dabbing, while an integral part of 710 Day, should be taken cautiously as the high potency of concentrates can overwhelm novice cannabis consumers. It’s also crucial to be aware of the legality of cannabis in your location. As cannabis legalization spreads, so does the legal market, but laws vary widely, and staying informed is essential. 

So, we’d like to offer a few tips on how to keep your celebrations responsible and safe:

  • Start low and slow — begin with small doses to monitor your tolerance.
  • Take all necessary safety precautions when dabbing — use the appropriate tools for each step of the process.
  • Familiarize yourself with the various types of concentrates available on the market before trying them out.
  • Ensure your session is in a well-ventilated area.
  • Be mindful of your surroundings when consuming cannabis in public spaces.
  • Have snacks and water on hand to combat any potential effects of dehydration or low blood sugar.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to having a safe and enjoyable celebration.
