Dab in the Holiday With 7/10 Deals, Events and More

The haze has barely cleared from the 4/20 celebrations in Denver, but another cannabis holiday is coming on Monday, July 10. Simply known as "7/10," July 10 has become a hipper, less commercialized party compared to its April counterpart in recent years, focusing exclusively on concentrates instead of flower and all other things pot. The inspiration for celebrating at 7:10 p.m. and on July 10 comes from simply flipping "710" upside down, so that it looks like "oil."

Has 7/10 replaced 4/20? Hardly. But it's quickly carved a niche in cannabis culture, helped by a huge boom in concentrates since recreational pot sales began in Colorado on January 1, 2014.

"Just two years ago, flower accounted for 90 percent of all sales, and now it is under 65 percent, and almost of that growth has been due to concentrates surging in popularity," says Joel Milton, CEO of Baker, a customer-engagement platform for dispensaries. "In the average dispensary cart, around 30 percent of items fall into the concentrate category."

Milton says he wouldn't be surprised if concentrates accounted for 50 percent or more of dispensary purchases on July 10, and dispensaries are getting ready for the hash boom.

"They are preparing," he says. "No, it’s not as significant as 4/20; 4/20 caters to every cannabis smoker, [while] this is a more targeted audience. But 7/10 should draw in a lot of repeat cannabis consumers, as opposed to 4/20, which tends to attract the less frequent users who may not be as educated on the gamut of cannabis products."

Denver has prepared for the holiday, with a colossal number of deals on concentrates around town through mid-July. Keep reading for a list of 7/10 events and some of Mile High's best dispensary deals this month.
