The second-largest cannabis holiday is here, and we’re ready to celebrate! Like 420, 710 is all about enjoying cannabis and the benefits it has to offer us. But unlike 420, 710 has a very specific focus. So before we break out the goods and head to the clouds, let’s explore what 710 is all about, how it came to be, and the best products for celebrating.
What Is 710?
710 is a cannabis holiday that’s specific to cannabis oil. (Flip your phone upside down and look at the number again. See it?) Oil, more broadly referred to as concentrates in the cannabis world, can mean anything from crumble to batter to even tinctures or vapes. Although, the go-to celebratory move on 710 is dabbing, so if you’re sticking with tradition, consider leaving the tinctures and vapes for tomorrow. (No pressure there. Weed doesn’t care how you celebrate it. It’s always in high spirits.)
The History of 710
710’s roots are a little fuzzier than 420’s origins. One theory has the term first popping up in 2010 on Urban Dictionary, though it started there as just a general reference to oil. The rumor is that it didn’t get cannabis-specific until 2011.
Other sources give credit to TaskRok of Highly Educated, a company that makes concentrate tools and accessories. Apparently, he came up with the term in a group chat with other industry folks. Later, in 2011, he released an album with references to cannabis oil and dabbing, including a song titled “7:10.” He doesn’t take credit for the term 710 though, saying the slang “belongs to the community now.” 
No matter how it sprouted, it grew into a worldwide term with the help of a 2013 LA Weekly article titled “710 is the new 420.” 2013 was also the first year of The 710 Cup. Since then, the holiday has only gotten bigger.
The term is headed toward 420 status now with annual dispensary discounts rolling out (including at 253 Farmacy), some large celebrations in states where cannabis is legal, and several concentrate competitions.
So, on that high note, let’s dig into the best products for celebrating 710 in Turner Falls, Massachusetts. You know 253 has you covered!
Best Concentrates To Dab on 710
If you’re planning to celebrate 710 at home with a solid buzz and a nap or two, this Indica-dominant batter is for you. With 76.8% total active cannabinoids and a sweet smell of skunky lemons and gasoline, you’ll be couch-locked and happy for hours. We recommend this one for the experienced 710 enthusiasts.
This beautiful hybrid is evenly balanced with 50% Indica and 50% Sativa content. A cross between Las Vegas Lemon Skunk and Member Berry strains, it offers a relaxed and happy high with an energetic boost that makes it perfect for an outdoor 710 celebration. Try a dab of this before heading out on a peaceful walk on the Canalside Rail Trail.
Our Blackcherry Punch crumble is an Indica cross between Purple Punch and Black Cherry Pie. This concentrate delivers a strong cerebral effect followed by a hard-hitting trance of relaxation, making it an ideal choice for a lazy afternoon at home with your favorite snacks. This one guarantees a giggly but calm 710 celebration, perfectly symbolic of the plant itself. (Bonus: we have it as a wax as well!)
You can’t really dab kief, but we wanted to through this one in here for our concentrate lovers who aren’t a fan of dabbing. Sprinkle this kief on top of any bowl to add a heavy hit of happiness and relaxation. Or, for those of you who are really in the high holiday spirit, try rolling a little onto your wax before dropping it into your banger. But only if you’re a seasoned dabber!
Best Dabbing Tools for 710
It’s a celebration, so ditch your old torch for something a little more festive (and precise). Yo Dabba Dabba’s Classic Titanium Enail lets you dial in your temperature anywhere from 0-1200 degrees, so you no longer have to worry about burning your throat and heading to the clouds too quickly or wasting your wax on a low temp dab that doesn’t deliver the high you were hoping for. (It can, but don’t go past 900 degrees with it!) Its auto turn-on feature is already ready for the celebration—it’ll heat up to a standard 710 degrees. The package includes a Digital Display Box and power cord, your choice between an all-in-one Titanium nail, Titanium-Quartz hybrid nail, or 25mm eBanger (available in 14mm male), a compatible heating coil, and a carb cap.
This platinum-cured, medical-grade silicone rig makes dabbing easy to do and easy to clean up. Its two-part design allows you to stash the included 4mm thick quartz banger inside when you’re not using it, and the base of the pipe is detachable for easy clean-up and storage. Plus, the detachable inline perc provides the best vapor percolation that can come from a silicone pipe, hands down. And to really get the party started, it’s available in glow-in-the-dark colors. Yeah, we know.
This extract pen is for our dabbers on the go. With an in-laid heating full quartz atomizer and an extra-large recessed ceramic plate atomizer, you’re guaranteed large clouds with the absolute best flavor. It looks like any other refillable e-cig, so you can enjoy 710 a little more discreetly. (Though, be wary of the smell!) And with its colossal chamber, you can celebrate 710 today, tomorrow, and the next day. And the next day. You get it.
Lucky for everyone, 710 falls on a Saturday this year, so we’ve got plenty of time to spend celebrating. Whether you’re a dabber, a vaper, or a smoker, 253 Farmacy has you covered on everything you need for a festive 710 weekend. If you find yourself in the Turner Falls area, stop by and ask us about our 710 deals. Happy Dab Day!
