We are well past 4/20, the Christmas of cannabis, and it’s time to prepare for the industry’s next holiday, 7/10. The renowned cannabis holiday 7/10 has quickly become cannabis consumers’ favorite. The rise of concentrates has been a historic change in the way consumers ingest cannabis. 7/10 is meant to celebrate marijuana concentrates on its own, unlike 4/20, which celebrates the entire cannabis industry. For those who don’t know what makes 7/10 such a special cannabis holiday, here’s the history of 7/10.
History of 7/10
7/10 is a celebration every year on July 10 in honor of the rise of cannabis concentrates. Over the past few years, the growth of recreational marijuana has brought more and more cannabis products to the market. Marijuana flower used to be the most purchased product, but concentrates are quickly taking over, so the history of 7/10 is a pretty short one. Similar to 4/20, everyone smokes down at 7:10 in the morning and evening. The only difference is it’s all about dabbing. The whole inspiration behind /710 is if the 710 flips upside, it spells “OIL”. This ironic coincidence gave birth to the second most popular cannabis holiday.
Colorado is one of the home bases for 7/10, as its recreational industry has grown its concentrate market tremendously fast. From wax and shatter to distillate and live resin, Colorado is the central marketplace for all concentrates. 7/10 is not as commercialized as 420, but it’s picking up popularity every year.
Consumers are digging cannabis concentrates and the mighty high they provide. That’s why 7/10 is so much more than just a concentrate celebration. Dabs and cannabis extracts have expanded our understanding of isolating cannabinoids, and how each cannabinoid has a specific role and purpose. The history of 7/10 is about celebrating how far marijuana products have come by dabbing out to some concentrates.
So, leaving the short history of 7/10, what about this year’s events? Unfortunately, 7/10 is on a Tuesday this year. So, these events are either before or after to make sure the majority of people can participate! The times are based in individual time zones.
7/10 Festival is Denver, Colorado’s first festival for celebrating the rise of cannabis concentrates. This one-day festival is the first major 7/10 event going down, and it’s definitely one to experience.

Many consumers settle for cheaper concentrates, but on 7/10 it’s the time to check out the best dabs on the market. Most dispensaries will begin releasing their 7/10 deals about a week out from the celebration. From buy one, get one free to 50 percent off, this is the day of deals.
On top of getting some stellar concentrates, roll through the local head shop and scoop up a premium glass rig, vape pen, or even nectar collector. Dab in style and don’t waste your top-shelf concentrates on a mediocre set-up. Many smoke shops will be running some excellent deals on their high-end glass pieces all day long. 7/10 is the day to pick up that rig you’ve had your eyes on for a while.
