MoonRocks and SunRocks are a special type of cannabis flower. Combining regular buds with oil and kief, these babies pack a big, potent punch.
Cannabis connoisseurs are always looking for newer, better ways to enjoy their favourite flower. Two of the latest experiments to help consumers get more out of their weed are MoonRocks and SunRocks – concentrate-covered bud designed to take you out of this atmosphere.
- Don’t grind them: A regular herb grinder will butcher these buds and likely struggle with their sticky texture. Instead, use your fingers or scissors to gently break them apart.
- Use a pipe, bong, or bubbler: At 60-80% THC, you don’t need a lot of these Rocks to get you flying. Hence, it’s best to use a pipe/bong with a small cone to avoid letting this stuff go to waste.
- Mix it with some regular weed: take it and sprinkle into some regular weed.
MoonRocks are something special. They are made by taking a regular cannabis flower, covering it with some kind of oil (usually BHO like wax) and coating it in a thick dusting of kief. Pack one of these in your pipe and you’ve got yourself a return ticket to the moon, literally.
SunRocks take things to another level. A SunRock is basically like MoonRock’s older, chain- smoking brother.
Both manufacturers take top-shelf buds (usually some kind of OG), dip them in a sticky layer of wax or similar concentrate, and then finish them off with a sprinkle of kief. Big Tray Deee’s Rocks usually feature a very thin layer of concentrate and kief, clocking in at about 80% THC. Apollo’s Rocks, however, typically boast a thicker layer of kief and roughly 60% THC.
Smoking Moon or SunRocks is a little different to smoking regular flower. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on these goodies, here are some tips to enjoy them properly.
While their composition is nearly identical (a bud coated in concentrate and sprinkled with kief), SunRocks are typically made using higher-grade products. They are currently being produced by two main manufacturers in California, Big Tray Deee and Apollo Sun Rocks.
Moon and SunRocks produce very unique effects. Some users compare them to dabs due to their potency, but the highs are really quite different.
In this article, we take a look at MoonRocks and SunRocks, two types of coated cannabis flower designed to produce a long-lasting trip.
If, for some reason, you still don’t believe how strong Moon Rocks can be, then you might believe renowned American rapper and ‘world famous cannabis user’, Snopp Dogg, who once exclaimed in an interview: “Moon Rock is too much, dog”.
Now let’s talk about the high – if we could use just one word to describe the experience it would simply be a big, resounding wow. The numbing high typically begins in your head and reverberates all throughout your body until it reaches your toes. Most seasoned Moon Rocks users have described the high as initially a slow burn that’s clear and present, and in about half an hour, it feels as if you just climbed a gruelling mountaintop, which you may not have been ready to climb.
* Fresh and whole flower buds
Once the hash oil has melted, use tongs, a pair of tweezers or silicone gloves to pick up one of your fresh buds. Using the butter knife, evenly spread the hash oil on the bud until it is completely soaked.
So how potent are they exactly? In a nutshell, the potency and quality squarely depend on the materials used – we would recommend obtaining Moon Rocks from a reputable dispensary only. In most cases, however, the THC level in Moon Rocks is roughly 50%, in some cases, even 60%. In contrast, some of the purest cannabis strains boast anywhere between 21-30% THC.
* An abundant supply of kief
However, we understand that not everybody wants to blast off straight away to the moon on their first experience and that’s fine. In cases where you wish to have the potency somewhere in the not too strong/not too weak zone, you can replace kief with isolated CBD powder or even use high CBD strains and concentrates. This balances out the often extreme THC effects in the oil and flower.
At some point, you may have been asked at a social gathering if you’ve ever smoked Moon Rocks. Or, you might have even asked yourself the same question, wondering about their origins, what the experience is like and how they can be smoked.
Be forewarned and proceed with caution – if this stuff was too much for Snoop Dogg, it may most likely be too much for your endocannabinoid system as well.
