7/10: National Dab Day Explained

National Dab Day, celebrated annually on July 10, is a date with growing significance in the cannabis community, particularly among those who prefer concentrates.

Also known simply as 710, the day is dedicated to dabbing, a method of consuming cannabis concentrates that has grown in popularity over the past decade, especially as more states continue to legalize them.

The term 710 might seem arbitrary at first glance, but it has a clever origin. When flipped upside down, “710” resembles the word “OIL,” a common reference to cannabis concentrates like shatter, wax, live resin and budder. These products are known for their high potency, offering a more intense experience compared to traditional cannabis flowers. The high potency has made them a go-to for medical marijuana patients seeking something stronger than a standard joint or bong rip.

Dabbing involves heating a small amount of concentrate on a hot surface, often a nail or a banger, and then inhaling the vapor through a dab rig. This method allows users to experience the full flavor and effects of the concentrate almost instantly. While dabbing might seem intimidating to newcomers, it has become a mainstream consumption method thanks to its efficiency and the rapid onset of effects.

National Dab Day celebrates the culture and community surrounding dabbing. It is an opportunity for enthusiasts to share their experiences, showcase their favorite concentrates, and educate others about the benefits and proper techniques of dabbing. Events, promotions, and gatherings are common on this day, both in-person and online, as the cannabis community comes together to celebrate.

The exact date when 7/10 started being celebrated as National Dab Day isn’t precisely documented, but it began gaining recognition in the early 2010s.
