About Moon Rocks
If you enjoy smoking bud but are looking for a more potent experience than what a typical flower provides, moon rocks might be for you.
Drizzled with hash oil and then sprinkled with kief, they’re kind of like cupcakes, except they’re 100%, smokeable weed. The layer on layer on layer of THC provides consumers with almost twice as much potency as they would get from the regular cannabis flower.
Moon rocks, not to be confused with sun rocks, offer smokers a high that eclipses the usual experience without leaving them too far out of orbit.
Origins of Moon Rocks
You can thank early ‘90s Death Row Records rapper Kurupt (Ricardo Emmanuel Brown) and his partner Dr. Zodiak for the introduction of moon rocks to the regulated cannabis market back in 2014. In partnership with 1933 Industries, Kurupt has continued popularizing it through the 2019 launch of his premium cannabis line, Gotti’s Gold. Gold Nuggets are concentrate-infused cannabis flowers covered in kief.
Moon rocks are popular among cannabis consumers for a lot of reasons. Most cannabis users prefer to smoke flowers over other consumption methods. Moon rocks provide this experience with the added punch of concentrates. This boost of potency is ideal for recreational users with a higher THC tolerance or medicinal users looking for immediate, stronger, and longer-lasting pain relief.
What they’re made of
They are made with three simple ingredients: cannabis flower, hash oil, and kief. That third ingredient is what distinguishes them from “cannabis caviar”, flower coated with concentrate. However, some people use the terms interchangeably, so make sure you ask what’s in your cannabis caviar or moon rock before purchasing or consuming it.
They are typically made with Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) flower and concentrate. The Indica-leaning hybrid averages around 27% THC, making it one of the more potent strains of the flower out there. But the use of GSC is not essential, since they can be made with any cannabis strain. The more THC, the more potent the high.
