Over the last 10 years, the art of separating trichomes and terpenes from plant material became a true science and we’re going to take a look at the road that got us to today where we now have the best hash in history.
The term “dab” comes from the motion of touching concentrate to a hot surface or touching a hot surface to concentrate, then inhaling the vapors. Always start off with a small sample and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Check out our “dab vocab” section to get up to code on the terms you’ve probably heard but may not completely understand.

July 10, otherwise known as 710, has only existed as a hash holiday for eight years, but it’s already entered folklore status. Much like 420 or Christmas with your family, you’re going to need a grocery list and you’re going to need to stock up early, or else you’re going to find yourself in need of a midday supply run.
As the movement grows, so does the message. Whether you are celebrating solo or gearing up for a concentrate extravaganza, these five songs will help keep the dabbing groove going for days to come. Members of the 710 squad, unite – today is your day to puff tuff.
