Moon rocks are a potent form of cannabis flower, characterized by their nug-like shape and exceptionally high THC content averaging more than 50%. Often referred to as “cannabis caviar,” these buds are dipped in extracts then rolled in kief for an extra layer of potency. Moon rocks may be confused with other marijuana products, such as traditional cannabis caviar which is simply the bud dipped in extract without any added kief.
Not only do moon rocks resemble something from outer space, they are also aptly named to reflect the elevated high you will experience when smoking weed dipped in concentrated cannabis and rolled with even more potent THC.
Although some cannabis consumers may use the labels “moon rocks” and “cannabis caviar” interchangeably, these were originally meant to describe two distinct products. Cannabis caviar could denote either moon rocks or regular nugs dipped in concentrate oil. Therefore, when you visit a dispensary looking for moon rocks but hear your budtender referring to them as ‘caviar’, it’s important to verify that they are truly kief-dipped varieties!
The cannabis industry is rapidly evolving, with moon rocks being the latest product to hit shelves. An abundance of varieties exist today and continue to be released by various brands as they experiment with different cultivars and concentrates. What’s more, non-THC hemp options are available that contain high concentrations of CBD instead.
If you’re looking for an exquisite cannabis experience without the hassle of a sticky mess, look no further than pre-rolls on the market that mimic moon rocks. These products combine concentrate and kief to coat their finished pre-rolls, enabling users to savor all the flavors and effects of smoking real moon rocks conveniently.
How to smoke moon rocks
Smoking moon rocks may not be overly complex, however it does require a bit more work compared to smoking flower.
- Use scissors to break the moon rocks into small pieces
- Use glass smoking gear as opposed to rolling papers
- To guarantee that minimal kief is lost, delicately pack a bowl of moon rocks into either a pipe or water piece.
- Use hemp wick to light your moon rocks
- Try to roll it up into a moon rock joint or a moon rock blunt
- Put moon rocks in your grinder
- Pack a bowl of moon rock weed too tightly
Bottom line: When smoking moon rocks, it is best to do so out of a glass as they are far too sticky to roll into joints. Grinding them can also lead to the destruction of your grinder and loss of most kief coatings. Due to its dense texture, you must hold a flame for longer than usual when compared with dry flower- but using hemp wick will save you from inhaling all that unhealthy butane!
