Getting down on Dab Day!

When it comes to cannabis holidays, most are familiar with 4/20, a day celebrated worldwide in honor of cannabis culture. However, there is another cannabis holiday that has been gaining momentum in recent years: 710.

But what exactly is the cannabis holiday of 710?

While it may not have the same mainstream recognition as 4/20, 710 has become a significant date for cannabis enthusiasts who appreciate the unique properties and experiences that concentrates offer. The term “710” is essentially “OIL” spelled upside down, representing the growing popularity of cannabis concentrates such as oils, waxes, and shatters. Unlike traditional cannabis flower, concentrates are highly potent forms of cannabis that contain a higher concentration of cannabinoids, predominantly THC. Concentrates are essentially just that…Processed and concentrated cannabis! They’re produced through various extraction methods that separate the desired compounds from the plant material, resulting in a highly concentrated product. The cannabis holiday of 710 falls on July 10th (7/10), and it has gained traction in recent years as the concentrate culture continues to expand.

Here are a few of the more commonly known types of concentrate forms:

  1. Oils: Cannabis oils are viscous liquids that are rich in cannabinoids. They’re commonly used in vaporizers, tinctures, and edibles. Oils can be made through various extraction methods, such as CO2 extraction, ethanol extraction, or solventless extraction techniques.
  2. Wax: Cannabis wax is a sticky and semi-solid concentrate that has a waxy consistency. It is often golden or amber in color and can range in texture from crumbly to more malleable. Wax is typically created using solvents like butane or propane, which extract the desired compounds from the plant material.
  3. Shatter: Shatter is a translucent and brittle concentrate that has a glass-like appearance. It is known for its high potency and purity. Shatter is created through a process called “purging,” which involves removing residual solvents from the concentrate, resulting in a smooth and clean product.
  4. Budder: Budder is a soft and creamy concentrate that resembles butter in texture. It is produced by whipping the extract during the purging process, creating a light and fluffy consistency. Budder is appreciated for its smoothness and rich flavor profile.
  5. Crumble: Crumble is a dry and crumbly concentrate that is easy to handle. It has a texture similar to crumbled cheese or honeycomb. Crumble is created through a similar process as wax but with different purging techniques, resulting in a concentrate with a unique texture and flavor.
  6. Rosin: Rosin is a solventless concentrate that is made by applying heat and pressure to cannabis flower or hash. This process extracts the desired compounds without the use of solvents, resulting in a clean and pure concentrate. Rosin can have a wide range of consistencies, including sap-like, budder-like, or even a more glassy texture.

These are just a few examples of the many types of cannabis concentrates available. Each type offers different characteristics in terms of potency, flavor, and consistency, providing a diverse range of options for consumers. It’s important to note that cannabis concentrates are highly potent and should be used responsibly and in moderation.

What about dabbing? No, not the head nod arm throwing version…  Dabbing involves heating a small amount of cannabis concentrate on a hot surface, typically a specialized dab rig, and inhaling the vapor produced. It’s a method of consumption that allows for rapid and potent effects.  The 710 holiday is a time to gather with friends, share concentrates, and appreciate the intricate flavors, aromas, and effects that different extracts offer. It’s a celebration of the skill and craftsmanship that goes into creating high-quality concentrates, as well as the camaraderie among dabbing enthusiasts.

Another one of the more appreciated aspects of 710 is its emphasis on education and exploration. Many events and gatherings are held on this day, offering opportunities to learn about different types of concentrates, extraction techniques, and the latest advancements in concentrate production. It’s a chance for both seasoned dabbing connoisseurs and newcomers to expand their knowledge and experience the wide range of options available in the concentrate world. Beyond the celebrations and gatherings, it promotes safe consumption practices, encourages proper dosing, and raises awareness about the potential health benefits of cannabinoids found in concentrates.  As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, the 710 holiday has become an important occasion for concentrate brands, extract artists, and enthusiasts to showcase their products, share knowledge, and foster a sense of community. It’s a time for reflection on the progress made in the world of concentrates and a celebration of the passion and creativity that drives this segment of the cannabis market.
