What is 710?
What is 710? If you consider yourself as part of the cannabis community, chances are you’ve heard of 420 and its significance. It’s kind of a big deal for cannabis consumers, a “high holiday” of sorts. But what about 710? How did that come about? Here’s all you need to know about 710, including the best parties to attend to celebrate.
While 7/10 may seem like a completely random date, it actually has a pretty clear tie to a popular form of cannabis consumption. Concentrates, as the name implies, are a concentrated form of cannabis. A popular slang term for concentrates is “oil,” named after the consistency and appearance of cannabis concentrates that some extraction methods produce. When you turn OIL upside down, it looks like the number 710. Thus, 710 was born. The exact origins of the cannabis holiday and connection are unknown, but over the years, it has grown in popularity and is now a recognized “stoner” holiday.
