What is Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis concentrates, also called oils and extracts, come in many shapes, sizes, colors, potencies, aromas, flavors, and consistencies. During extraction, organic plant matter is separated from the plant’s resin containing cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

According to Grand View Research, a market research and consulting company, the global marijuana extract market size was valued at $7.3 billion (USD) in 2019 with no signs of slowing down. Growing medical and recreational markets around the world have increased the global presence and popularity of cannabis concentrates.
710 Meaning: What Is 710?
710 has become a worldwide phenomenon due to legal cannabis markets’ introduction of cannabis concentrates to consumers. Concentrates range from ultra-potent THC wax to CBD-rich tincture that can be consumed orally or sublingually.
710 is now the unofficial designation for cannabis extracts solely because when you flip the 710 date upside down, it spells oil.
What is 710 Day?
Naturally, 710 Day turned into a special day to honor the resinous oil that comes from the cannabis plant. Every year, July 10th (7/10) is an international holiday for dab and marijuana enthusiasts.
Dabbers around the world celebrate by vaporizing a wide selection of concentrates out of a dab rig (glass or enail) or dab pen. Edibles, topicals, tinctures, and transdermal patches are all made with concentrates, too.
The History of National Dab Day
The history of national oil day is mired in mystery. 710 really took off with the legalization of weed in early-adopting states. As customers grew hungry for more variety, potency, and flavor, the internet became abuzz with talk of oil, or 710 in internet-speak.
710 became a mainstay in the cannabis community with the introduction of the 710 Cup in 2012, which takes place on the 10th of July. The event recognizes the best products in a number of categories including Distillate, Concentrate Sativa/Indica/Hybrid, CBD Concentrate, and more categories.
Since then, 710 has become an easy way to talk about dabs and dabbing, in general. 7/10 may not be as culturally significant as 4/20, but it’s a great stoner holiday to enjoy alone or with friends.
420 and 710: What’s the Difference?
420 and 710 are both dates relating to popular cannabis holidays. 420 refers to the decades-old marijuana holiday that occurs on April 20 (4/20). Cannabis users around the world gather together to light up and celebrate the psychedelic plant.
420’s history goes back to 1971 in San Rafael, California. A group of San Rafael High School students who referred to themselves as the Waldos would meet up at 4:20 pm after school to search for a rumored weed stash on school grounds. Over time, “4:20 Louis” became a coded way of arranging a meeting at the Louis Pasteur statue to continue the search.
One of the Waldos, Dave Reddix, found work touring as a roadie for Grateful Dead where the term started picking up steam. Eventually, band flyers started inviting fans to come and smoke at 4:20 and listen to some good tunes. The rest is history.
What Does 420/710-Friendly Mean?
Being 420/710-friendly means you’re comfortable with cannabis concentrates and the consumption of these products. 420 and 710-friendly can be used on a variety of occasions and locations including apartment listings, event flyers, businesses, and homes.
