I don’t know if there’s a single person on Earth that doesn’t know what 420 is, to the point that I don’t feel the need to re-explain it.
But roughly a decade ago,
sometime in 2011, a new three-digit number began to emerge for cannabis enthusiasts: 710. It’s somewhat similar to 420, but it has some key differences (and it’s own weird history) to highlight. With some help from our friends at Grobo (and their damn fine products, which we will talk about in a bit), let’s take a tour through the history of 710.
First things first, you need to know about
concentrates (trust me, it’s important). While everyone knows that you can just smoke cannabis, some of you might not know that it comes in different concentrated forms. These forms are known as Shatter (because of its glass-like appearance), Wax (which is exactly what it sounds like), Rosin (made through compression, Hash (the oldest method of creating cannabis concentrates), and Oil.
Oil tends to be a much healthier way to concentrate cannabis on the whole, and the word “oil” is where 710 comes from.
I’m sure there are tons of people who remember old calculator tricks where you would spell “words” with the digital display (the most infamous of these being the good ol’ “80085” trick).
Well, if you type “
710” into a digital calculator and flip it upside down, it looks a lot like the word “oil,” which brings us to 7/10 the date. Basically, it’s 420 for folks that love their cannabis concentrated, and while it’s not as well-known as 420, it’s far from obscure.
Look in the Dictionary
The history of 710 is honestly pretty murky, but it first popped up on
Urban Dictionary in 2010, though it didn’t have an affiliation with oil until 2011. It stayed obscure until 2013 when LA Weekly ran a piece called “ 710 is the new 420.” Combined with several states over the last few years legalizing cannabis, and the new “holiday” has slowly gained prominence.
Well, all you need is some kind of
concentrate, whether it’s Shatter, Wax, Rosin, Hash, or Oil, and some kind of rig to use accordingly. If you need a visual reference point, just hop on Instagram and search #710, you’ll only find about 10 million results or so.
Our friends at Grobo recommend Oil as the concentrate of choice, and there are tons of reasons for that:
For one thing, oil is extracted in a safer and healthier way than other concentrates. But it’s shown to have some
health benefits associated with cannabis, but just in a more concentrated form. It has the qualities of an anti-inflammatory for joint pain, calming effects on anxiety, an increase in appetite (obviously), calming upset stomachs, and more.
ALL OF THAT BEING SAID, any concentrated cannabis isn’t exactly for beginner use. If you’ve never used cannabis before in any form, you probably shouldn’t start there.
Now, you might think having cannabis oil might require a heavy industrial process, but it doesn’t. In fact, Grobo’s YouTube channel actually has a
video tutorial on making your own oil at home that’s around 6 minutes long.
As for having cannabis necessary in the first place? That’s where Grobo truly steps in.
Grobo sells high quality indoor grow boxes for cannabis strains with an extremely easy process, automatically adding nutrients to your strains as they grow. And don’t worry, the box itself will literally walk you through the entire process, sending you notifications on your strain’s progress. With over 500 grow recipes to choose from, we think you’ll find a strain for your needs.
Oh, and if you have a roommate like mine who’s not the biggest fan of cannabis’ odor, don’t worry, the Grobo box has a carbon filter to reduce odors. Obviously, you can pony up the cash and buy one outright, but they actually have a giveaway campaign going on right now, starting today and ending on 7/20.
Regardless of if you grow it yourself or supply the oil in some other way, there’s no wrong way to celebrate 710. We recommend indulging and relaxing, especially since 710 falls on a Friday this year (I mean, once I’m off the clock today, I know exactly what I’ll be doing). And maybe, as time goes on, more and more folks will know the joy of 710.
