The high hash holiday is nigh. July 10th, or 710, has emerged in recent years as a celebration of all things oil. Dab aficionados far and wide are currently cleaning their best heady rigs, excitedly waiting for exclusive drops and epic seshes. While not as well-known as 420, the date is still significant enough to warrant parties, seminars, and dispensary sales across the country. Here’s a shortlist of five awesome events going down this year—tap in!
Frenchy Dreams of Hashish World Premier – San Francisco
Folks in the Bay Area won’t want to miss the premiere of the long-anticipated documentary Frenchy Dreams of Hashish at the historic Marina Theatre. The film centers around the late Frenchy Cannoli, along with several Emerald Triangle cultivators in a story that will “amplify Frenchy’s and the farmers’ ethos of sustainable farming and their dedication to quality sun-grown cannabis.” A portion of proceeds from the film will benefit the Origins Council, a nonprofit advocacy association that serves 900 licensed small and independent cannabis businesses in six legacy-producing counties throughout California.
“It’s bittersweet to complete it now because obviously, it would have been a profoundly joyful thing to experience this with Frenchy. He really loved all the farmers he worked with in the Emerald Triangle,” said Kimberly Hooks, producer of the film and widow of Frenchy. “He wanted their longtime activism and dedication to quality highlighted.”
A Q&A with filmmakers will follow the screening. Tickets must be purchased in advance—purchase here.
Happy Munkey 710 Experience – NYC
Happy Munkey has been at the forefront of East Coast cannabis culture for years, with their infamous underground speakeasy a favorite of consumers and industry elite alike. While the New York scene may be experiencing a shift thanks to adult-use legalization, the OGs at Happy Munkey continue to raise the bar. Their 710 celebration should be nothing short of legendary, going down on a private rooftop in Chelsea.
“As NY starts its legal Cannabis industry, The Happy Munkey is proud to maintain its role as the trendsetters in the NYC market with unique legal consumption experiences as we’ll be doing on 710 with what we all anticipate to be another award-winning event,” said Stu Zakim, spokesperson for the organization.
