Many of you are now becoming familiar with 420 or 4/20 being known as the smokers holiday. As the consumption preferences of cannabis have expanded, so has industry holidays. 710 has growingly become a celebration of variously extracted cannabis products such as oil, edibles, dabs, wax, crumble, vape etc. The holiday is known in short as OIL Day, since when you turn the word oil around it looks like 710. This is the significance of holding this event annually on July 10th for Georgia's oil based patient program.
On April 17, 2019 Governor Brian Kemp (R) signed the Georgia Hope Act also known as HB 324 into law. This law was designed to allow Georgia's 15,000 + patient registry access to low dose, clean, safe and affordable medical cannabis oil within the state of Georgia. This law allows no more than 5% THC and can be obtained from licensed dispensaries or specially licensed pharmacies-- which do not exist and have not existed since the program's inception in 2019. These companies have joined together to create a space for patients, CBD providers, entrepreneurs, elected officials and other interested community members to come together to network and build sustainable solutions and opportunities to progress through this new evolution of medicinal use.
