Okay, so from what I've been able to gather, there is a "new" (apparently it's been around awhile but this is the first we're hearing of it here ;)) movement called The "710" Movement. Similar to 420 (a.k.a. 4/20, a.k.a. 4:20), instead of celebrating the consumption of Cannabis in general, 710 celebrates the consumption (or smoking, if you will) of Cannabis OIL (a.k.a. hash oil, a.k.a. "Errl"). If anyone has any more information about this and would like to contribute said information to this thread, please feel free to do so. :3:

Hempy Belated 710 everyone!

:Namaste:

Mexicans, the Irish and living veterans only get one holiday. But stoners apparently need two.


That's right. Move over, 420, meet 710. Today is your day, and we bet there will be some toking across Los Angeles at 7:10 p.m:

So what's the symbolism surrounding July 10? Well, it's not the date so much as the number that's important here.

According to High Times, 710 is OIL backwards, and hash oil, honey oil and "wax" are potent concentrations of marijuana that are quite popular these days in L.A.'s dispensary scene.

Happy 710 Meaning: Twitter Trends 'Dab Day' On 'New Stoner Holiday'

April 20, or 4/20, is informally known as the nation's stoner holiday, but now, apparently, there’s another one.

On July 10 -- aka 7/10, 7:10, or 710 -- “Happy 710” trended on Twitter when users began discussing the new, informal marijuana-related holiday en masse.

The holiday was created to recognize the popularity of “dabs,” the slang term for high-THC concentrates, which users obtain in the form of "wax," tinctures or oils, according to High Times.

So where does the name 710 come from? It’s not like 4/20, which has a few different rumored origins, including one involving a police radio code.

Instead, it’s something much more simple: “710” upside down spells “OIL.” Thus, a number of marijuana aficionados are saying that July 10 should be honored as “Dab Day," the day each year when THC-laden oils and concentrates should get their due while getting their users stoned.

Cannabinoid or THC extraction is the process by which concentrated cannabis is separate from the marijuana plant. This is usually done by forcing butane through a pressurized tube that contains cannabis, a police official told OC Weekly in 2013.

“The product extracted results in a higher concentrate 'oil,' which is processed via a heat source or evaporation into a semi-solid final product," he said.

But cannabis oil extraction can be dangerous, causing occasional explosions, as the process involves butane, which can be volatile.

Most Twitter users, however, weren’t focused on the drug's potential dangers; instead they chose to celebrate with “Happy 710” tweets.
