About

The famous phrase "it's five o'clock somewhere" means that even though it may not be five o'clock in your local time zone, odds are it must be in another part of the world. The end of the work day for a traditional "nine-to-five" worker is 5 p.m. and its typical to see the start of 'Happy-Hour' at most restaurants and bars around this time.

People generally use this phrase to justify drinking at any time of day, given that somewhere in the world it's 5:00 p.m. In countercultures throughout the world, 4:20 p.m. is the socially accepted time where people gather for cannabis-oriented celebrations.

In addition to the occurrence of 4:20p.m. each day, April 20 is observed around the world each year as a time to gather together and celebrate cannabis. The day has become a popular time to advocate for liberalization and legalization through concerts, festivals and protest in civil disobedience.

This website makes it easy to know when its 4:20 by tracking over 30 time zones around the world in real-time. We also have a live countdown that monitors the days leading up to April 20 in your local timezone.

While its true that most time zones around the world differ from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by a number of full hours, there are also several time zones with both 30-minute and 45-minute hourly offsets. Furthermore, regions that use Daylight Saving Time (DST) change time zones during the DST period and the areas that don't use DST remain on their standard time all year, this results in various 4:20's throughout the day depending on the time of the year. Plus, it was fun to make!

According to Stoner legend, the roots of the term "four-twenty" trace back to Marin County, California in the early 1970's. Five high school students from San Rafael High School would regularly meet after class at 4:20 p.m. to do what stoners do.

They chose that specific time and a specific place, near a statue of chemist Louis Paseur, to hang out and eventually they started using the phrase "4:20 Louis" around each other as code for a cannabis meetup. Details are sketchy, but as the story goes, one of the students (Dave Reddix) eventually went on to become a roadie for the Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh, where the phrase became popularized among followers of the band and started to spread.

In the days since, the time 4:20pm, number 420, and the calendar date April 20 (4/20) have become internationally recognized as counterculture symbols among smokers and non-smokers alike. As cannabis remains illegal in many countries, celebrations are held around the world on April 20 advocating for its decriminalization and legalization.

In cannabis culture, the number 710 is often associated with concentrates and oils, rather than the more commonly known 420 which is associated with general cannabis consumption.

When the number 710 is turned upside down, it spells "OIL" - a reference to cannabis concentrates like hash oil, wax, shatter, and other potent extracts. As a result, July 10th (7/10) has become a sort of "dabbing holiday" where enthusiasts celebrate and consume cannabis concentrates.

710 is a more recent addition to cannabis culture compared to 420, and its popularity has been growing in recent years alongside the increasing popularity of dabbing and concentrate consumption.

Unlike 420, which has more concrete historical roots in a specific group of high school friends in the 1970s, the origins of 710 seem to be less centralized and more a product of modern cannabis culture and the digital age.

The first instances of the 710 reference appeared on online forums and social media platforms dedicated to cannabis concentrates, such as wax, shatter, and oils. As with many trends in internet culture, it likely spread organically through online communities and gained traction over time.
