Note it on your calendar: Thursday, August 8, marks the second annual observance of National CBD Day.
Wait, is National CBD Day really a thing? If it’s a thing, how did it become a thing?
For decades now cannabis enthusiasts have marched, rallied, and gotten elevated on April 20, better known as 4/20, an event that started as an after-school weed-smoking break in the 1970s for a group of California high school students, and which evolved into an annual international celebration of all things cannabis.
For the past seven years or so, meanwhile, some people have latched on to July 10, or 7/10, as Cannabis Oil Day, a day to give thanks for cannabis oils and extracts. The holiday’s date originated when somebody noticed that the number 710 looks like the word “OIL” when viewed upside down.
