This unique holiday is a premiere showcase of cannabis distillate products from the cannabis industry and not only celebrates the joy of cannabis but also brings incredible deals and discounts to the community.


In this article, we'll delve into the significance of 710 Day, explore its history and popularity, and discuss strategies dispensaries can use to seize the opportunity to offer extraordinary deals.



Understanding 710 Day Deals


710 Day, also known as "OIL Day", or "Dab Day" falls on the 10th of July in the United States. This cannabis-centric holiday is dedicated to honoring cannabis culture, advocating for its legalization, and responsibly enjoying cannabis distillate products.

And this cannabis "holiday" is fast gaining ground on opportunities to dispensaries to offer cannabis enthusiasts a time to shop for deals in the same way "420 Day" and "Green Wednesday" have grown in recent years.



A Glimpse into the History of 710 Day Deals


710 Day's roots can be traced back to the early 2010s. Hip-hop artist TaskRok used social media to spark 710 during a virtual dab session in a TinyChat chat room. As many things within cannabis culture do, it grew quickly into a thing from there, thanks to the widespread use of social media.


Back in 2010, there were few legal cannabis dispensaries across the US who carried the newer form of cannabis distillate products. But thanks to a little mystery and legend, 710 day has grown and become the perfect opportunity to provide discounts, special promotions, and exclusive deals to cannabis enthusiasts and medical marijuana patients.


In the regions where cannabis has been legalized for use, 710 Day has grown in popularity and become a staple "savings" holiday cannabis enthusiasts look forward to for shopping deals on cannabis oil products. Summertime plays a key role, as what is known in the industry as the "dry season" while new crops are not ready for harvest, a plentiful supply of the cannabis oil products naturally fill the gap and are available in a multitude of strains.
