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.

While it's tough to say which is the best and most effective way to experience the effects of this non-psychoactive drug, this article provides readers with different ways to consume, soak-in or routinely take CBD and how it actually works. In this article, Refinery29 interviewed Rick Weissman, president of High Fall Hemp, a New York-based CBD company.
