While the 4/20 cannabis holiday is much more well-known, connoisseurs of concentrates and extracts have been celebrating all things cannabis oil for nearly a decade now. While it may take a while for mainstream society to catch up to July 10th, like they have April 20th, the more popular cannabis gets with the general public, we can expect the general public to catch up sooner or later. Until then, the cannabis community gets to have a more secretive celebration. The good folks at Leafly have provided a nice primer for the new holiday:
“’710′ is the number associated with cannabis oils and extracts for the plain and simple reason that if you turn the number upside down, it looks an awful lot like the word ‘OIL.’ (Go on, try it on a calculator, just like how you used to type in 5318008 in math class and then giggle with your friends when you turned it upside down.)
“Unlike the 4/20 holiday and celebrations, the 7/10 holiday is a recent phenomenon with debatably vague origins. 710 celebrations were first noted in 2012 (but may have occurred earlier than that), with the 7/10 Cup celebrating the various types of cannabis extracts and oils. When Colorado and Washington legalized cannabis, this helped normalize the use of cannabis extracts and increased the availability of oils and dabs on the cannabis market.”
