The Real Definition?

We start with the what we have found to be the use of the original word.  The original word was used in the southern part of the United States of America.

meaning of errl

It started being associated with Oil.   In the cannabis industry, concentrates (marijuana wax, marijuana shatter and bho oil) are referred to as oils.

Explaining Why Oil and 710

Why is it associated with oils?

After they process the cannabis with an ethanol, butane, isobutane, or acetone they come out with a liquid like texture.  Which looks like clean oil.   This started the reference to Oil when thinking of cannabis concentrates.

710 meaning errl


Why is Oil/Errl associated with 710?

Another phrase in the cannabis industry that has come from concentrates is the term 710.   Like 420 refers to marijuana, cannabis, or weed, 710 is the reference to oil, bho oil, wax, concentrates and other things that are considered cannabis concentrate products.

710 comes from Oil, turn OIL upside down and you get 710.

So when someone says we are going to go 710 or Its 710 let’s celebrate.  Now you know, it’s the new 420.  Kind of cool, they flipped it over and came up with oil.

That leads use back to our original questions.

Please remember, until recently when the State Government and local elections determined that Cannabis is a medicinal cure and that it is better to control and research this wonderful plant then it is to regulate it at a Scheduled 1 Controlled Substance, people were fearful of using words like Cannabis, Marijuana, Hash Oil, Weed, so they had other words that described what they were saying by not using the stereotyped words we associate with Cannabis.
