Happy 7/10?

Happy 7/10? Huh? It's the new 420? Wait, what?

Before working in cannabis, I just thought "dabbing" was a dumb dance move that athletes were incorporating into their victory routines (...and then almost immediately losing in the next big game, following the same trend as getting a tattoo of your significant other's name). So naturally, I also thought 7/10 was just July 10th. Silly me.

7/10 is a national holiday for the cannabis community that consumes concentrates - OIL (wax, shutter, BHO, etc.). 710 upside down and backwards is OIL - oh so clever. It's commonly referred to as "Dab Day" or "Oil Day". "Dabbing" is a technique that is growing in popularity due to the quick and intense high that can be achieved. Before you roll your eyes and make the assumption this is a "stoner's dream", as it is often cast in a negative light because of the overall consumption process, this has also been incredibly helpful for those using medical marijuana for instant relief. Some consumers also report that this method of consumption has helped them quit more serious addictions including opioids.

Focusing on the benefits versus the stigma associated will assist with further legalization regulations.
