The moon rock marijuana is a type of strain that is composed of 70% Indica & 30% Sativa. This type of weed is rumored to have been invented and promoted by rappers Kurupt and Dr. Zodiak and the name is derived from its similarity to real moon rocks.
Read more as we are going to tackle some of the things you need to know about moon rocks strain weed before taking it for medicinal or recreational use.
What Are These Types Of Herbs?
Moon rocks are basically buds of cannabis that is either sprayed or completely dipped in hash oil and kief. The resulting product is an exquisite marijuana delicacy with very high THC.
Historically speaking, this type of marijuana is usually made with the Girl Scout Cookies cannabis strain, but any premium marijuana strain can be made into moon rocks.
Moon rocks strain is a powerful kind of marijuana, with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) levels reaching anywhere from 21% to 26%. That’s the reason why it’s not recommended for first-time use because it may result in lethargy and couch lock.
Its Difference With The Caviar Strain Of Marijuana
Cannabis caviar and moon rocks appear very similar at first glance because they are both dipped in hash oil and then coated in kief. The only difference is that cannabis caviar will often have one of the ingredients only (either has or kief), while moon rocks typically have both ingredients at all times.
In addition, moon rocks have a strong user base in California while cannabis caviar is the preferred weed of choice in the Colorado state. Of course, both of these strains are available in other states in the country.
How Is It Made?
Experts recommend leaving the concoction of this strain to the professionals and purchase them at authorized dealers. But just to have an idea of how it is made, here’s how:
- Prepare the ingredients you need: A bud/nugget/lump of the most potent type of marijuana, hash oil, grounded kief.
- Place the bud/nugget on a skewer and dip it in a bowl filled with hash oil. Alternatively, the hash oil can also be sprayed directly (or soak it using a dropper) to the bud/nugget.
- Roll the lump on the grounded kief.
- Don’t worry about having too much hash oil or kief because the whole point of creating moon rocks is to make it as insanely potent as possible.
How Is It Used?
And lastly, using moon rocks strain of marijuana is ideal with bong/blubber/glass pipe since it can get quite messy when you smoke it. Cut a portion of the moon rock and smoke it as is or combine it with other strains of cannabis flower.
One thing to remember though is that these strains are very potent and are meant to blitz out the user. Therefore, they are not recommended for beginners.
Furthermore, keep the moon rocks away from direct sunlight as it will lose the shape of the rock and compromise the quality of the product. Once it loses shape, it will already be difficult to handle. So use it away from the sun.
