What is 710? What does it have to do with weed?
So you like many other want to know what is 710? 710 is relatively simple. 710 refers to a highly concentrated form of cannabis, cannabis oil.
Why the numbers 710? The numbers of 710 spell oil when turned upside down hence where the term 710 came from. Most cannabis users relate 710 to a dab. It is called a dab because you only use a “dab” or small amount of it, due to it being a highly concentrated substance.
710 can come in various forms like wax, shatter, oil, and hash. Wax is solid, soft, and opaque. Shatter is smooth, solid, and like glass, hence the name shatter because it shatters when broken. Oil is also soft, very thick, and semi opaque, just like the wax. Hash consists of cannabis resin and dense plant materials.
The extraction process for concentrates is not recommended for the average person to do, as it is a highly dangerous process and if done incorrectly it could result in blowing everything up, i.e. your house! So don’t do it on your own. Solvents are added to shredded cannabis flower to make wax and shatter. Infusion and pressing is how the oil is made. An ice bath process or flat screening and rolling it out makes hash.
How is this then smoked? It can be smoked in a glass pipe with a stainless steel nail or banger (a small glass reservoir that attaches to the stem of a water pipe) or with a vaporizer. A torch or electric heater is used to heat the banger or nail, then when a dab is applied to the hot surface, it vaporizes instantly while you inhale.
