Blog, cannabis, holiday
According to Merry Jane, The Day of the Dab also known as 7/10 has in more recent times become the weed world's No 2. holiday. The Day is all about cannabis concentrates and extracts. But Why? "710" is the number associated with cannabis oils and extracts literally because the number upside looks like "OIL." According to Leafly, the day has vague origins.
