What Is 710 Your Complete Guide to the 710 Cannabis Culture

When you think about cannabis holidays, chances are good that 420 comes to mind immediately. However, there’s another one you need to know about: 7/10. Not sure what the 710 holiday is all about? In this guide, we’ll explore the meaning of the 7/10 festival and what you need to know about it.

What Is 7/10?

Whether you call it 7:10, 710, or 7/10, it all comes down to the same thing: the third most important cannabis holiday of the year (420 and Green Wednesday are the other two). However, where other holidays are about all things cannabis, the 7/10 holiday is pretty specific. It’s all about celebrating cannabis oils in all their forms. That includes oral oils, but also dabs. Of course, there’s no rule saying that you can’t get your 7/10 celebration on with a little green and a little oil. You do you.

When and How Did “7/10” Become a Common Idiom?

There’s no real consensus on when 7/10 became a thing. It dates back to the early 2010s and seems to have originated in online chat groups. The 7/10 cup was introduced in 2012 and that helped the holiday gain more popularity.

The term comes from a popular joke from the 2000s. It goes something like this:

A man comes into an auto parts store and asks the staff for a replacement 710 cap.

“A 710 cap?” the staffer asks.

The guy nods.

“What kind of car is it for?” the staffer asks, thinking maybe it’s from an exotic import or something.

“My Buick,” he replies.

“Can you give me more information? What does it do? Can you draw a picture of it?” the parts guy asks.

“Sure,” the man replies. He draws a circle about 3.5 inches in diameter with the numbers 710 in the center. Of course, the staffer sees it from the other direction and realizes that it’s not 710. It’s OIL.

Anyway, the joke might be a little lame, but it was enough to get the celebration rolling. And now you know why 7/10 refers to oil, too!

Where Can You Celebrate 7/10 Weed Holiday?

The 710 stoner holiday is celebrated on, you guessed it, July 10th. And while there’s no single event that is ideal for everyone, you’ll find different celebrations held in its honor all around the US. For instance, there’s the 710 Degree Cup in Arizona. Colorado also gets in the action with the Kush Masters 710 Celebration. Oregon also has a festival. And as it gains yet more recognition and acclaim, look for more and more festivals to crop up. Don’t forget to check your local events – your budtender could likely give you the rundown on what’s available near you.

What Are the Differences between 710 and 420?

While both 420 and 7/10 are technically cannabis holidays, they’re not the same. 420 is Weed Day, held on April 20th each year. It’s a day to celebrate your love of herb in any way you might want, from joints and blunts to bongs and vapes. The 7/10 weed holiday, on the other hand, is about oils: shatter, budder, and wax.

That focus isn’t the only difference. You’ll find quite a few differences in the celebrations themselves. 420 is earlier in the year, so while festivals usually take place outdoors, they’re not as sports oriented as 7/10. With 7/10, there’s a definite air of competition and sportsmanship.

Finally, you can look at the popularity of these two weed holidays. 420 is definitely the more popular of the two, but a lot of that is because it has been around for longer. The 7 10 Dab Day is gaining ground, but it may never eclipse 420 just because of its focus on oil, whereas 420 can be anything cannabis related.

How to Celebrate and Have a Happy 710 Day?

Not sure how to celebrate the 7/10 Oil Day? Why not visit your local budtender. They can give you the lowdown on which oil products you might prefer. You’ve got quite a few options to choose from, including dabs, shatters, budders, and waxes. If you’re new to cannabis in general, oils may not be the best place to start, however. Work with your budtender to find an appropriate entry point for your experience level, metabolism, body type, and goals when it comes to consuming cannabis. Some people just want a light buzz, while others want to rock and roll. Yet others prefer to use it to combat pain and anxiety. There’s something for everyone available these days, even if you ultimately don’t go the oil route.
