Nowadays every support group and institution is claiming a calendar date for their own holiday. Sure 4/20 is great, but with all the new cannabis products out there is it really enough? We don’t think so, and thankfully we aren’t the only ones!

What is 7/10?

As you’ve probably guessed by now 7/10 is a new marijuana related holiday. You can think of it as a close relative of 4/20 (and another awesome reason to get high), but somewhere along the line a creative genius came to the conclusion that there were just so many cannabis derivatives available now, we really needed another day to celebrate them.

So instead of celebrating weed as a whole on July 10th, we’re celebrating dabs and the new era of cannabis concentrates. Think:

If you’re wondering why this day and not one of the 363 other days of the calendar (as 420 is already pretty damn good), it’s because 7/10 upside down spells oil- a branch term for all cannabis concentrates, extracts and hash products.

How do I celebrate 7/10?

We’ve written plenty of articles about dabbing in the past, so I won’t go into too much detail, and thankfully you only need a few pieces of equipment to get started. Essentially you can modify your existing bong to dab as long as you have a nail, blowtorch, and a dabber to place the concentrate on the heated nail, after which it vaporizes, you inhale, and begin the celebrations.

This isn’t the only method of course, with portable vaporisers and e-pens also designed to consume oil and concentrates. Once you’ve finished lighting sparklers and eating cake, throw on the latest 7/10 mix tape and congratulate yourself on a job well done.

If messing up your house (or your mom’s) this July 10 doesn’t sound appealing then you’re in luck! Much like its April counterpart, new events are cropping up that are entirely dab-centric. The Chalice Glass festival in California celebrates all things glass, music, hash and art, while the Heady Glass Gallery usually hosts their own all day celebrations. If that isn’t enough, there’s always the 7/10 Cup to get your lungs going too!

Have your own plans for this year’s 7/10? Or does your hometown throw their own event? Tell us about on social media or in the comments below.
