Why Not a Second 420?
We all know about 420. It’s the mythos, the benchmark of cannabis consumption, and a way of life. It’s Cheech and Chong’s favorite number. However, what also exists and is just as important is the cannabis holiday of 710, celebrated on (cough cough) July 10th. It’s like Christmas in July with less family dysfunction. When we need any excuse to celebrate, why not a second 420 holiday?
Just like Christmas, what do we do for 710? We celebrate by purchasing all sorts of dab rigs and dab rig essentials at any of the six Purple Haze locations. Trust us; this is way better than mistletoe.
What The Heck is 710 and Dabbing?
710, which backward and upside down means oil, is for the love of cannabis but more specifically for oils, dabs, concentrates, and rigs. Honey, shatter, sauce; this is the day of high THC and high consumers. If you aren’t familiar with dabbing, let’s get you heated up for the hit. Dabbing is another technique for consuming flower extract and concentrate. Typically dabs are heated through a glass dab rig, which is a water pipe and stem attachment. It can also be puffed through a vaporizer, volcano, or nectar collector. With glass dab rigs, just heat the bucket until hot, use the dab tool to set the wax or concentrate of your choice, and then use those lungs to puff. Voila. Some concentrates can be laid over flower and smoked through the water pipe. Make sure to ask your budtender about specific needs or differences between products.
How to Celebrate 710 With Purple Haze
Coloradoans, Purple Haze is the go-to place for all your dab rig and concentrate accessory needs. Keep your daze filled with haze at their six locations, including four in the Denver area. Luckily being a cannabis user offers a lot of opportunities for diversity, but for dabs, your best bet is usually a dab rig. Dab rigs typically cost anywhere from 60 dollars to thousands for those boujee Heady Glass folks. Buying a dab rig is a fantastic investment and will definitely bring the party wherever enjoyed. Any water pipe will make for a smoother hit, and we all want a smooth 710. When buying a dab rig, make sure to include a dab tool, cotton swabs, rubbing alcohol, and a torch. Having a stand also adds to the experience.
Purple Haze offers a myriad of water pipes for concentrates. For the smoker on a budget, the primary-colored bonanza of the GLO4.5 is under 200 dollars, light and transparent. It has bright yellow accents to make it look waxy and help you stay in the spirit.
The Fumed Floating Recycler is also cheaper and an aesthetically adventurous rig. The swirl and flow of oranges and purples will make every hit complement your music or that scenic beachside you’ve wanted to chill by. Of course, the Medicali Slime 13 is under 400 dollars and a cool slime green for the sludgy folks.
Torches are a necessity, and a popular brand is Blazer. The purple Blazer Big Shot GT8000 Tabletop Torches are hot to trot and stable, so your clumsy friend doesn’t bump anything and breaks your bubbler. Trust me; we’ve all been there. If you need portability, there is nothing wrong with the MB04 Mini Torch Lighter by Blink.
Unless you’re a masochist who doesn’t care about their fingers, you need a dab tool to put the concentrate in the stem attachment. The nail, as it’s called, has plenty of suitable options. Purple Haze has brands like SKT, with the AA Honeybun, which is anodized and holographic; there’s the hip-hop nod Scoop Dogg with graffiti branding on the handle. If you feel like getting major air, the SKT mini keychain dabber is good for the free-wheeling nomads on the halfpipe.
Always make sure to get cleaner for your rig to maintain smoothness and to keep it clean. Also, keep your nails fresh with Glob Mops XL. Extra protection is always good, so make sure to put your rig in a foam case with a handle. The most exciting part is the concentrates. A lot of brands do the trick. While Purple Haze doesn’t sell cannabis, they would have some good knowledge about where to start.
You Are Set
Congratulations. You bought your first dab rig. You’ve sifted through Denver’s best and found a colorful and shiny setup to wow your friends. Find your favorite sauce, wax, diamonds, or shatter, find some great tunes and dab away for the other cannabis-infused national holiday.
