What is National Dab Day?

National Dab Day is a day devoted to the art of “dabbing,” and it’s typically marked by enjoying some form of cannabis oil, wax, or shatter. To do this, the cannabis connoisseur places a small amount of concentrate in the dab rig and consumes the vapor. By dabbing these cannabis concentrates, consumers can produce a quicker, more powerful effect. As a bonus, with the right concentrate, dabbing can also be more flavorful due to the different aromas and terpenes.

Why is 7/10 Dab Day?

7/10 or 710 is considered National Dab Day for one specific reason—when you turn 710 upside down, it looks like OIL. It’s the perfect number to represent cannabis oil and many other cannabis concentrates. While it only was first commonly talked about around 2010-2011, it’s now a popular holiday where cannabis consumers celebrate their concentrates and licensed dispensaries offer deals on certain marijuana products (and if you’re lucky, tools, too).
