What are moon rocks?
Moon rocks are cannabis buds dipped in hash oil, then rolled in kief.
Historically GSC is used, but any strain will do.
How potent are moon rocks?
The potency of each batch of moon rocks varies and depends on how it’s made and who produces it. However, the general consensus is that they are around 50% THC. For reference, most flower averages around 20% THC. Basically, it’s worth noting that each hit you take will be it’s very own experience.
Ready to talk about the high? Prepare to be amazed. “Starting in the head and eventually spreading throughout the entire body, down to your toes, a moon rock high is a slow burn that will make you realize you’ve reached a mountaintop that you may not be ready to climb” (Leafly).
Pros and cons of smoking moon rocks
- They will get you super duper high
- Cost effective—just like dabs, a little bit goes a long way
- Great for medical patients or other folks who want a high dose of THC
- They’re a fun novelty and good conversation-starter
- They will get you super duper high (not always a good thing for everyone)
- They’re messy—most people smoke them in glass; you can roll them in a joint or blunt, but don’t put them in a grinder
- Keep them in a cool, dry place; you don’t want them getting all melty on you
How to smoke moon rocks
Moon rocks are recommended for experiences cannabis consumers as they pack a powerful punch. Here’s some advice on how to prepare for your moon rocks experience:
Whether it’s a bong or pipe, use some glassware for moon rocks because it’s not your typical flower. It’s thick and greasy and will have to be ripped apart piece by piece.
Throw it on top of flower
The greasy texture of moon rocks makes them a little hard to light and keep a cherry, but if you throw them on top of some flower, you’ll be good to go.
You’ll also be doubly high, but honestly, at this point, you can’t even be concerned about what level of highness you’ll end up at. (The answer is the top.)
If you break up some moon rocks weed and sprinkle them on top of ground bud, you can roll up a blunt or joint and make it work for you.
Finish all of your daily tasks before smoking
We’re serious. We understand how usually we all enjoy getting high and then going to do things, but moon rocks aren’t the same level. Friendly word of advice, tackle your to do list or errands before smoking moon rocks. Otherwise , you may pass out, wake up and be all stressed about the time that has gone by.
Eat before smoking
The key word is before. If a moon rock is too potent, having something in your stomach will help prevent you from getting nauseous. It’ll also help keep the munchies down. Keep some snacks nearby, too!
The cottonmouth is real, and you’re likely going to become dehydrated. Keep some water right next to you!
Choose the right environment
The setting is very important. If you’re going to hit some moon rocks, do so in a comfortable and vibe-encouraging environment where everything around you gives your soul life.
Start low, go slow
As always, start out with just a little and gradually increase—take a small hit and space out your hits.
How to make your own moon rocks at home
Though moon rocks are historically made with GSC flower and/or GSC concentrate, you can make your own moon rocks however you’d like. All you need is the following:
- Buds of your favorite strain
- Your favorite liquidy concentrate or hash oil
- Big ol’ bowl of kief from the bottom of your grinder
- Tongs (or any grabbing/pinching apparatus)
- Liquid dropper
Grab a nug or two of your favorite flower. I suggest using one of the denser nugs, as it’ll hold the final cannabis cocktail together better.
Grab your favorite concentrate. If it’s super thick and tough to manipulate, heat it up until it’s a little liquidy
Then use a dropper to completely cover the buds without having to dip them in the concentrate. Oversaturation of the bud will lead to longer drying times and difficulty lighting it.
Use tongs to grab the bud and roll it in kief until the entire nug is covered in crystal goodness.
Let your moon rocks dry until they’re ready for action, then smoke it up.
