Everything you need to know about 7/10
Issue Time:2017-11-28


We all celebrate April 20th or 4/20. It comes once a year and it's our national stoner holiday. But guess what? We've got another one! With the rise in popularity of “dabs," high-THC concentrates and oils, July 10th has grown in popularity as our new, secondary stoner holiday. This is especially true in the states where both recreational and medicinal marijuana has been legalized.


Why choose 710 as the national dab day?


If you turn the number 710 (or July 10th) upside down, the word “OIL” is spelled out. A strong consensus is building within our community that the date July 10th should henceforth be recognized as a day to celebrate the wonderful world of oils and concentrates. In other words, July 10th will now be known as “Dab Day.”


What is dabbing?


710 is all about celebrating dabs and dabbing.


Dabs are a highly concentrated form of marijuana, made by extracting the THC and other cannabinoids from the marijuana. This creates wax, shatter, etc. with incredibly high doses of nearly pure THC.


The concentrate is heated up on a hot surface and then inhaled through the dab rig. It's fast, efficient, and gets users REALLY high. It's not really recommended for beginner stoners but is popular among more experienced users.


When dabbing, it's essential to keep in mind how potent concentrates are. The average THC potency in flower is roughly 8% to 22%. Concentrates, on the other hand, have an average THC level that is more than double that. Concentrates tend to have a potency level of 20% to 80%, though some do have more THC than that.

 

In the end, it all comes down to which type of concentrates you prefer: Wax, shatter, resin, or rosin.


Main types of concentrates


When it comes to picking your concentrates for this year's 710, it's important to know the three main types of cannabis concentrates: 


Shatter looks a lot like hard candy, being translucent and occasionally transparent. To make this type, butane is forced through cannabis material to create a golden liquid that is then given time to cool down. Once the temperature of that new liquid has dropped, the liquid becomes solidified shatter with the consistency of super thin peanut brittle.

 

Wax looks and feels exactly like it sounds. It begins as a golden-brown liquid produced through butane extraction. The liquid is heated up to create an opaque, sticky substance that usually resembles ear wax or thick peanut butter.

 

Rosin is created by drying out and curing cannabis flowers and then using both pressure and heat to make them agitated and pressed. This releases the THC-filled resin.


How Does One Dab?


While there are countless ways to get high on weed, there are, generally speaking, only three techniques utilized in vaping 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 usual 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. Transpring W1 Portable Vaporizer is one of those which can offer you a fantastic dabbing experience. You can click the picture below to know more!
