You’ve heard of 420 (National Cannabis Day), but do you know about 710? In the cannabis community, July 10th is Oil Day – because “710” upside-down is “OIL” – and it’s a time to celebrate cannabis oil products and concentrates, as well as highly potent forms such as hash, resin, shatter, wax and others. In fact, many cannabis advocates recognize the date as International Dab Day!
At Honeysuckle, we’re fans of all items that spring from the magical plant (and we’re no stranger to dabs either). And in the spirit of a truly monumental 710, we’re bringing you our picks for the hottest products to elevate your summer holiday. So sit back, relax, and concentrate…
Best Oil Day Vapes
PAX 3 and ERA Pro
Leading the pack in exceptional devices, the award-winning PAX Labs has given their cult favorite vaporizers a vibrant summer makeover! PAX 3, the ultimate portable device for loose-leaf and concentrates, is now available in Amber, inspired by the pre-sunset “golden hour” that feels like magic. Its sister product ERA Pro, the most discreet device on the market offering predictability and full flavor with a curated selection of cannabis pods, also has a new look in Sapphire, a deep blue indicative of the Pacific Ocean. These limited-edition colors allow consumers maximum personalization and the purest cannabis experience possible, as well as control and consistent quality with extended battery life and PAX App capabilities. As life reopens, these pocket-sized vapes are the perfect companions for a hot vaxxed summer.
RYTHM LIVE Oil Cartridge
As the song goes, the Rythm is going to get you! The latest vaporizer from the full-spectrum company RYTHM is a live resin made from fresh-frozen flower. Fans of RYTHM express appreciation for the brand’s true-to-plant experience, as they specifically cultivate each strain to harness its unique qualities for body and mind. New kid on the block RYTHM LIVE offers a fun remix with an array of terpenes and THCa for a flavorful premium vape experience, made more deluxe through its use of superior CCELL hardware. That’s what we call hitting a high note.
Best Oil Day Pre-Rolls
Space Coyote Infused Joints
We must admit we have a little crush on Space Coyote. Dedicated to crafting products for stoners, by stoners, the California-based brand embraces the cosmic power of cannabis and support farmers who use regenerative agriculture and sustainable practices to cultivate their plants. The difference is evident in Space Coyote’s distinctive infused joints, which feature unique strain pairings and top-quality icewater hash from Nasha Extracts. Other pre-rolls include concentrates like diamonds and live resin. For those seeking something new, Space Coyote also recently launched its first high-potency flower (minus the pre-roll), sold in quarters for a guaranteed good time.
Baker’s Infused Pre-Rolls
Can pre-rolls make for a proper 710 celebration? They can if they’re coated in cannabis distillate, like these new infused pre-rolls from Baker’s Cannabis Co. Distillation is hailed as the next evolution in cannabis production science, as the process creates a tasteless, odorless, 99 percent pure THC concentrate. Highly potent and developed by the minds behind California cultivation pioneer Canndescent, the Baker’s distillate is infused with terpenes for maximum flavor, adding to the richness of these indica, sativa, and hybrid varieties which include classic strains like Peach Ozz, Meat Breath, and Garlic Breath. Each joint is rolled in a THC kief for the ultimate entourage effect and a full-body high.
Aster Farms Infused Olive Oil and Pre-Rolls
Genuine oil on Oil Day? You best! Thanks to a partnership between the Northern California brand Aster Farms, renowned for its sustainably produced sungrown flower, and Potli, the premium purveyor of cannabis edibles products for the kitchen, infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil is now available. The highly-rated oil is potent and relaxing, containing 100mg of THC in an 8.45 fluid ounce tin. For those who prefer to get their potency the old-fashioned way, we recommend checking out Aster Farms’s solvent-free infused pre-rolls with icewater hash. Fun-sized and portable, the perfect ratios allow for a smooth and even burn while packing a punch.

With strains developed in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, Kind Tree Cannabis has a reputation as one of the East Coast’s most memorable and eco-friendly medical marijuana cultivators.

Incredibles S’mores Chocolatey Bar
Distillate is not just for coating flower! Allow your Oil Day experience to merge with the nostalgic taste of summer in the S’mores Chocolatey Bar from the award-winning Incredibles. Founded by cannabis OGs, the Incredibles brand has been innovating edibles consumption since 2010, pioneering methods of dose transparency and product effectiveness that established the industry standard. The S’mores Chocolatey Bar proves how that standard creates a gooey marshmallow-and-chocolate goodness built to fire up your taste buds. With 10mg of THC per piece, this notable delectable – recognized as the Best Tested Edible in 2015’s THC Championship – provides a consistent elevation great for medical and recreational consumers alike. But if you want to enjoy this adult take on summer sweetness, you’ll have to act fast; it’s a season-exclusive item.
