Everyone’s favorite up-and-coming cannabis holiday is upon us. 7/10 is OIL when flipped upside down (just like your brain on too much oil), yeah it’s a bit of a reach but we will take any cannabis celebration we can get. Our friends at Westword Magazine came up with five great ways to celebrate and still keep yourself together. Don’t be a dab and dropper, it’s a bad look.
On Tuesday, July 10, thousands of cannabis users in Colorado will ditch the ol’-fashioned flower for concentrates to mark 7/10, a day dedicated to hash. The reason? Because when you look at the date (710) upside down, it looks like “oil.”
Say what you will about its origins, there’s nothing silly about what this state’s 7/10 celebration is doing for commercial cannabis. Dispensaries have taken notice, too, with nearly every pot shop in the Mile High offering some sort of holiday special.
A word of caution, however: With potency levels of anywhere from 60 to 90 percent THC, cannabis concentrates can easily lead the inexperienced down the path of overconsumption. To help ensure that you don’t spend three hours tomorrow staring at the refrigerator, here are five ways to celebrate 7/10 like a seasoned vet.
Celebrate with friends
Don’t be a loner stoner; dab up with others. Not only is it more fun to get high with a little help from your friends, but your pals are also there to make sure you don’t overdo it — and if you do, they’ll get you home in one piece (maybe after drawing a dick on your forehead, but safe nonetheless). Since amateur freakouts are likely with concentrates capable of reaching over 95 percent THC, make sure you have a partner to hold you down. After all, someone has to be able to eventually order that pizza.
