A Few Facts About Moon Rocks

There’s a reason it’s called Moon Rocks. After a few hits, you’ll be on your way out of the earth’s atmosphere. They are exactly what you’ve been looking for if you’re looking for the most potent high you can possibly get from something that is still technically a flower. Without further ado, let’s get to 5 facts you should know about marijuana moon rocks.

  1. Moon Rocks have a mysterious origin

Their exact origins are unknown, but rumors abound that they were created by the dispensary Starbudz760, with legendary West Coast rapper Kurupt popularizing the product and trademarking his own version called Kurupt Moonrock.

  1. No, we are not talking about a rock that is found on the Earth’s moon.

Moon Rocks are not igneous i.e. formed from the cooling of lava. Rather, these moon rocks are created by dipping or spraying a nugget of marijuana in concentrate or hash oil. They’re typically made with Girl Scout Cookies flowers and concentrate (not Thin Mints), but they can be made with any strain.

After that, the coated nugget is rolled in a knife. Kief is the sticky crystals that cover the cannabis flower. It is also known as pollen or dry sift. Terpenes and cannabinoids are found in this crystal residue.

  1. They vary in strengths

The potency of each batch of Moon Rocks varies depending on how it’s made, who makes it, and what ingredients are used. However, the prevailing opinion is that they contain around 50% THC (most flowers by themselves average around 20 percent THC). To put this in context, popular strains found in dispensaries typically range from 17 to 28 percent THC.

  1. Smoking moon rocks isn’t difficult, but it does take a little more effort than smoking flower

There are few things you want to keep in mind when smoking moon rocks. The first is to use a pair of scissors to break the moon rocks into small pieces. Make sure to use glass smoking gear rather than rolling papers. Make sure to pack a bowl of moon rocks lightly into a pipe or a water piece to lose as little kief as possible. Lastly, to light your moon rocks, use a hemp wick.

Now a few things you should not do. Do not try to roll it into a moon rock joint or moon rock blunt. You also don’t want to put the moon rocks in a grinder. Lastly, do not pack too much moon rock weed into a bowl all at once.

  1. You can make it from the comfort of your home

If you decide to make moon rocks at home, it is not just possible, but it would also only need a few tools and ingredients. Here are the items you will need:

  • A nug of flower

  • Extract or concentrate

  • Kief, either store-bought or from your grinder

  • Tongs or tweezers to separate sticky ingredients

  • A liquid dropper (optional)

Here are the steps to follow to DIY your own batch of moon rocks:

  1. Apply the extract to the entire nugget. Depending on the consistency of the cannabis oil, you may be able to roll your nug in it. Some extracts may require heating to achieve a consistency that will adhere to the flower better. If the extract is liquid enough, you may be able to apply it to and within the nug with a dropper.

  2. Allow the first layer to permeate the nug before repeating step one. Warm oil is also injected into the center of the buds by some canna-crafters.

  3. Roll the extract-covered flower in kief once the extract has been layered and set. If necessary, use tweezers. The knife should easily adhere to the oil-covered nug.

  4. Set aside the nug that has been covered in kief and concentrate to dry in a cool place away from direct light or sunlight.

That is all there is to it.
