Because moon rock weed is made using three distinct forms of cannabis, each with their own degrees of potency, many are calling moon rock the strongest cannabis in the world and categorize it as the best high on Earth. But is moon rock weed really as potent as all that?
Butane is by far the most popular solvent used to make honey oil. It’s so popular that we often refer to the finished product as butane hash oil (BHO) to distinguish it from other extraction methods (like ice water extraction).
In addition, the potency of the honey oil you use along with the potency of the kief you use will have a profound effect on the THC percentage of the finished moon rock. On average, a typical moon rock offers 50% THC, but that already-high percentage can be pushed to almost triple digits with the right combination of ingredients.
Chief amongst those factors is the strain used. But almost equally important is the terpene and cannabinoid concentrations present in the bud, honey oil, and kief.
Honey oil, or hash oil, is typically made through a process known as solvent extraction. In solvent extraction, a chemical solvent like alcohol, carbon dioxide, or butane is forced through the cannabis material. In the process, trichomes and other chemicals are stripped away from the plant. The solvent is then removed by evaporation or straining, leaving the THC, CBD, terpenes, flavonoids, and other goodies behind.
We’re not going to kid you, moon rock weed is pretty potent…or at least it can be if you choose the right ingredients. It starts, of course, with the type of bud you use. You can choose a high-THC strain like Bruce Banner (29% THC) or you can choose a low-THC strain like Maui Wowi (13% THC). That will have a significant effect on the potency of your moon rock weed.

CBD (full name cannabidiol) is the true medicinal powerhouse of the bunch. On top of that, it won’t cause any psychoactive side-effects. So you can take CBD products without worrying that you’ll get high and lose half your day.
Essentially, moon rock weed, or cannabis caviar, is a small pinch of your favorite bud covered in honey oil with a generous dusting of kief on top. The finished product looks very much like a nugget of green candy or, for those more healthfully-inclined, a Brussels sprout.
Discover the truth about moon rock weed, learn what goes into making it, and find out if producing your own moon rock weed is a good choice.
Here are step-by-step instructions for how you can make moon rock weed at home. (We even provide a few shortcuts if you can’t be bothered to properly make your own).
DIY moon rock weed is just a few quick steps away.
A larger nug will require more hash oil and kief. But try not to worry about the size of the bud unless you’re running low on supplies.
Using a bowl (or bong)
Consider the source of each ingredient. While the finished product may be strong enough that you won’t notice the difference, try combining flower and oil with the same flavor profile (or complimentary flavors).
Hold the nug firmly near the base with your tweezers to ensure a secure grip and make it easier to rotate.
- Fill a bowl with weed
- Add a drop or two of cannabis oil
- Sprinkle kief on top
