How 7/10 Became The National Hash Holiday


By Barry Bard

What are Dabs?

Fundamentally, “Dabs” are hash. Unlike traditional hashish, the term describes hash extracted with Butane, Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, or Solventless. Thus, “Dabs” are a more potent form of hash that comes in varying forms. Like traditional hash, extract artists use techniques that ultimately pull out resin, trichomes, and THC, binding them together for a far more dense and potent substance than cannabis. Unlike hash, the “Dab” extraction process is a more thorough approach that maximizes the concentration of the THC present in cannabis.

Before we go in Dab-Depth, here’s an Infographic that describes the basics of Dabs in visual form-and why 7/10 holds a special meaning for hash heads:

What Are Dabs and 710? – An infographic by the team at On July 10 the marijuana community celebrates cannabis concentrates commonly referred to as “DABS”


Why 7/10?

The cannabis community celebrities dabs and cannabis concentrates on July 10 with festivals because “710” upside down spells “OIL” a common acronym for dabs and a form dabs often take. Thus, “7/10” has come to represent “The Day of Dabs” in recent years.


Thanks to celebrity stoners like Wiz Khalifa and Action Bronson, Dabs have recently seen a surge in mainstream acceptance

Dab functions as both noun and a verb.

In noun form, a “Dab” is one hit of cannabis concentrate, varying in size based on the consumer’s tolerance and preference. In verb form, “Dabbing” represents the act of consuming a cannabis concentrate. Dabs vary in size depending on the consumer’s experience and desired high.


How Does One Dab?

There are three main methods to consume dabs. The first two methods use a rig, a modified traditional water bong sculpted for dabbing. The first rig method utilizes either a titanium, quartz, or ceramic nail and a Creme-Brulee blow torch And a standard kitchen blow torch. The torch heats the nail up and then a “dabber”, which is just a usually glass or titanium vehicle to place the dab. The “dabber” heats the nail up with a torch, and then uses a “dabber” to place hash on the heated nail. The Dab then melts Dabs vaporize not melt! and a THC-filled smoke cloud fills up the rig and enters the consumer’s lung and is inhaled into the consumer’s lungs.. The second rig method uses an Electronic Nail (an “E-Nail), which plugs into an outlet and electronically heats up a rig. The third and final method is through portable vaporizers, on to which has is placed and an electronic, battery powered vaporizer heats up the Dab.

      I remember that all the knives in the house would have the telltale black mark from pressing hash between them, The trick was cooling down the smoke, we used a glass turkey baster without the bulb that had been dipped in water and frozen over and over until it had a layer of ice on it. We called doing this “bump a chunk” I remember this was a favorite thing to do with all the black hash that was around in the day. Thanks for the memory! :)

    Words mean something.

    ac·ro·nym [ak-ruh-nim]
    1. a word formed from the initial letters or groups of letters of words in a set phrase or series of words and pronounced as a separate word, as Wac from Women’s Army Corps, OPEC from Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or loran from long-range navigation.
    2. a set of initials representing a name, organization, or the like, with each letter pronounced separately; an initialism.
    3. an acrostic.

    OIL is not an acronym for anything. Stop making it sound like the industry is just a bunch of uneducated morons.
