What is 710 and why is it celebrated as a stoner holiday?
If you are not familiar with 710, you should know that it is a stoner holiday and it is celebrated on the 10th of July, which gave the 710 label to this celebration. But, how did 710 appear and why do people celebrate it? After all, if we are to talk about stoner holidays, most people will have 4/20 in mind, being the national stoner holiday celebrated on the 20th of April.
So why did 710 even appear? It seems that this holiday is closely related to the fact that dabs and dabbing became more and more popular. Dabs are high-THC concentrates and oils, which can be smoked for recreational and medicinal purposes, being the reason the 710 phenomenon spread with so much success.
710, OIL and July 10
Just how 420 is created and used, 710 is another term to describe cannabis concentrates, ending up the second stoner holiday throughout the country. Until recently, 420 was the only name given to all sorts of cannabis concentrates, also being the only celebration of the kind. But, some users decided that cannabis concentrates deserve to have their own name, describing the properties of each.
Thus, 710 appeared, being chosen because it spells the word “OIL” if you turn the numbers upside down. So yes, 710 makes reference to cannabis oil products, such as shatter or wax. Concerning the person that created 710 and started this movement, we can’t say much, because no one knows for sure how 710 came to life, just like in the case of very many other marijuana products. Although many people will claim that they are the creators of 710, it is practically impossible to prove it. Nevertheless, cannabis dabbers celebrate July 10 as the cannabis oil holiday.
What are dabs?
Speaking of dabs, what are they more exactly and why do people use them? As mentioned before, dabs are marijuana or hash in a more concentrated form. Practically, an oily sticky substance is extracted from the plant’s flowers, which have very many minuscule crystals on them, with the help of solvents, like carbon dioxide or butane.
Although many dabs users are trying to make this extraction at home, it is not recommended to do so, because you can get hurt when using such solvents. If you are wondering why people prefer dabs, you should know that their high effect is rather potent. The high concentration of THC in dabs provides users a strong high feeling in a very short time. So, dabs are used for recreational purposes and as alternative medical treatments, for conditions like chronic pain and extreme nausea.
Again, because it is related to cannabis, it is very hard to state when 710 actually became a stoner holiday. Still, rumors say that the first references that pointed out toward the fact that 710 is a stoner holiday emerged in 2013. But, this doesn’t mean that this is when the celebration started.
Most certainly there were people that celebrated 710, in rather restrained groups and manifestations, long before it was so well known. The fact that 710 became the second official stoner holiday just shows that its popularity grew sufficiently among cannabis users.
Happy 710 everyone! Do you celebrate this holiday?
