Dab doers, concentrate connoisseurs, and honey oil lovers—it’s your big day! July 10, aka 7/10 or OIL Day (because “710” turned upside down looks like “oil”), is cannabis extract fans’ 4/20 (April 20—the first official smoker’s holiday). It’s a lot of letters and numbers, but put it all together and it spells out special promotions at your local, legal dispensaries and vendors, as well as extract-related special events.
Cannabis extracts come in many concentrated forms—hash, wax, honey oil, budder, sugar, shatter, live resin, and more, typically differentiated by extraction method or texture of the final product.
Dab consumers love the potent effects of cannabis concentrates and avoid some consumption of combustible particles that are inhaled when cannabis is smoked in its natural, plant form.
This year, of course, is unlike any other and social smoking is not happening. Some Dab Day celebrations will move online, while Colorado enthusiasts will be able to attend outdoor events that invite dabbers to participate, with appropriate social distancing, at healthy hikes and bike rides.
Even if you’re isolating, it’s a good day to try something new—a new cartridge option (if you vape), a new piece of gear or dab rig, or a fat dab of premium extract that you’ve been thinking of checking out.
Celebrate the day with this 710 holiday list of fun finds:
If dabs aren’t a do for you, cannabis oil can still be experienced. These THC Soft-Gels are easier to use for precise dosing, odorless, and formulated for daily use.

AbsoluteXtracts also partners with NorCal neighbor Lagunitas Brewery to create Hi-Fi Hops, a THC-infused beer. Available in California and Colorado, at ABX.org.
