Just like everything else in the Cannabis Community, the first part of your path to getting educated involves understanding marijuana jargon. Most weed-related terminologies are a sort of code used by stoners in days gone by so they could talk openly about smoking marijuana without the fear of recrimination for doing something illegal. So, to put it simply, these weed-related terminologies were born out of necessity. Cannabis users had to find a way that they could communicate among themselves without cops, parents, principals, or teachers knowing what they were talking about.
“710” is the special Code for Extracts or Concentrates
As the name implies, “concentrates” are the concentrated version of the original bud. Through the solvent extraction process the trichomes and other chemical elements that comprise the medicinal and psychoactive components of marijuana plants are stripped away from the plant itself. Once the stripping process is finished, the cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC), flavonoids, terpenes, and a more potent concentrate is all that’s left from the original bud.
Concentrates can come in a broad range of different forms including Budder, Crumble, Honeycomb, Shatter, and Wax. However, the base component of all of these is the oil that comes from the extraction process. Consequently, the term “oil” is commonly used as a blanket or umbrella terminology that refers to the consumption of cannabis by “cold start dabbing”, “regular dabbing”, or smoking these concentrates in other forms. All of this eventually gave way to the birth of a new cannabis subculture of 710 friendly.
(Hint: By writing the word oil on a piece of paper and turning it 180°, the word “oil” becomes “710”.)
What do We mean by 710-Friendly?
Simply stated, 710-friendly means that oil, as well as its consumption methods and its different byproducts are welcome in certain areas. Thus, if you see a sign on your local dispensary’s door that says “710” or “710-Friendly, this indicates they sell concentrates and the aficionados thereof are encouraged to shop there. Keep in mind that the slogan isn’t reserved exclusively for dispensaries. You can find it on bumper stickers, caps, and t-shirts as well. You’ll even find 710-friendly tags on social media platforms.
Regardless of where you encounter the terms “oil”, “710”, or “710-friendly”, it just emphasizes the fact that consuming cannabis concentrates is one of the most current industry trends. For more information on this topic, you can do a Google search which will yield hundreds of results.
