Cannabis moon rocks are a stoner’s intergalactic dream. This cosmic blend of cannabis consists of large nugs of flower, dipped or coated in extracts and then rolled in kief. Moon rocks are typically very high in THC, averaging over 50% and beloved for their potency. Moon rocks may also be referred to as “cannabis caviar,” although technically this title is better used to describe cannabis buds covered in extracts, but without the added layer of kief. Although moon rocks are a relatively new cannabis product, you can find them in many variations, including THC-free and high-CBD hemp strains.
The origin of moon rocks adapted from the longstanding relationship between cannabis culture and hip-hop. They are a product of a mixtape collaboration between West Coast rapper Kurupt and music artist Dr. Zodiak. It’s been said the two met in 2013 and quickly shifted from working together on music, to launching the first line of branded cannabis moon rocks. After popularizing the product and trademarking their own, other brands and dispensaries began creating their own variations of lunar concoctions.
Moon rocks don’t just look like something out of the Earth’s atmosphere, they get their name for the astronomical high you’re bound to feel after smoking this celestial combination of concentrated weed. If you are wondering how strong moon rocks are, there’s high variability in terms of potency from every batch made because flower, extracts and kief all have their own potencies. Add this to the fact that moon rocks are usually coated with more than one layer of concentrate, and you have a very potent product on your hands.
Smoking moon rocks isn’t necessarily complex, but there are a few tips and tricks that will help create a seamless first experience.
Don’t use a grinder (moon rocks are notoriously sticky and will gunk up your grinder)
Use scissors to break the moon rocks into small pieces
Use glass smoking equipment instead of rolling papers
Use hemp wick to light your moon rocks
Don’t pack a bowl of moon rocks too tightly
