If you’re a frequent cannabis user, chances are you don’t get high as easily as you did at the very beginning of your adventure with the herb.
If you’ve just sadly nodded upon reading the above line, you may want to try something more potent than your regular flowers.
And if you have an adventurer’s soul, Moon Rocks will be your best bet.
Also known as cannabis caviar, Moon Rocks are capable of delivering the whole new level of high. These little pieces of weed art can pack a punch, so you need to make sure your tolerance to THC is on adequate levels.
In this article, we’ll help you understand what Moon Rocks are and how to make your own weed caviar at home.
Let’s go over the basics to begin with.
Explaining the Term Moon Rocks
While the name may indicate a newly invented cannabis strain, Moon Rocks are, in fact, some sort of a weed experiment. They were allegedly first created by legendary West Coast rapper Kurrupt in cooperation with the dispensary Starbudz760. The rapper even came up with his own version of Moon Rocks called „Kurrupt Moonrock.”
Moon Rocks are like THC bombs — but in essence, they’re just marijuana buds (originally Girl Scout Cookies, but any strain will do the jon) sprayed with or dipped in hash oil, then covered entirely in kief.
Despite the varying potency and strains used in the production of Moon Rock, these rich nuggets come with around 50% THC, which is a smooth bridge between smoking cannabis flowers and dabbing concentrates.
Moon Rocks or Weed Caviar? Different Names for the Same Product.
If you’re familiar with the cannabis vocabulary, then you also know that this culture blooms with different nicknames for the most common weed products and concepts.
Therefore, it shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that Moon Rocks go by the same token. One of the most popular, and presumably most appropriate nicknames for these creations is cannabis caviar or weed caviar.
People use these terms interchangeably, but some cannabis users refer to buds sprayed with hash oil without chief as weed caviar. Either way, both products come with an above-average THC content.
The Benefits of Moon Rocks
First of all, Moon Rocks will come in handy when your tolerance to THC gets so high that you only get mild effects from smoking flowers.
They can get you insanely high, so when approaching Moon Rocks for the first time, make sure you have nothing planned ahead later that day.
Because you won’t get anything done afterwards. A Moon Rock is a „one and done” smoke, meaning a very small amount can get you baked for a long time.
On the medical note, Moon Rocks provide long-lasting relief from severe symptoms, such as chronic pain, inflammation, overwhelming stress, or depression. The relief comes with minimal effort.
However, to draw upon the benefits of Moon Rocks, you must get past the smoking session first. Let’s see what it feels like to smoke moon rocks.
What’s it Like to Get High on Moon Rocks?
Moon Rocks aren’t for newbies, nor are they always a good source of cannabinoids for experienced users. To withstand the potency offered by Moon Rocks, you need to be a savvy cannabis veteran.
The very smoking experience feels delightful, as it allows you to taste the resinous part of your cannabis (hash oil and trichomes in the form of kief), but the smoke itself can be harsh due to the high levels of THC.
When inhaling the smoke, you’re delivering the whole array of aromas and flavors from the strain, hash oil, and kief — it’s definitely a must-try experience for all the flavor chasers out there.
The high starts with a strong cerebral rush, eventually creeping down the body to let you embrace complete physical relaxation. The first 30 minutes may lead you to think the high starts to fade off, but in fact, it’s only a short silent period before the storm.
An hour later, you’ll realize that you’re high as an airplane and you’re not going to land any time soon. The buzz will take a form of hazy and giggly mood, which may later glue you to the couch if you go overboard with the sticky sprinkled treat.
In short, be prepared for hours of euphoric and, at the same time, soothing high that may even remind of itself the morning after your moonrock session.
How to Make Your Own Moon Rocks in Several Simple Steps
Making DIY Moon Rocks is extremely easy. Once you collect the equipment, all you need is a little bit of patience and basic manual skills to make these mouthwatering creations.
- Your favorite cannabis strain
- Hash oil
- A full bowl of kief collected from the grinder
- A dropper
- Grab a nug of your cannabis strain, preferably a denser one because it will be able to hold more kief and oil together.
- Prepare the hash oil by heating it up to the desired consistency
- Use the dropper to completely cover the flower in the oil.
- Grab the dipped nugget with your tongs and roll it in kief until it gets entirely covered.
- Repeat that process until you run out of nugs.
- Transfer your Moon Rocks onto a cooling rack and dry it until it’s ready for use.
Getting the Most Out of Your Moon Rocks
Below we give you a neat cheat sheet for making sure you get the smoothest experience with Moon Rocks:
- Always smoke Moon Rocks from glassware. If you try to roll them up in a joint, you’ll end up with a wasted product and an unbelievable mess.
- If you want to spice up your high, add some Moon Rocks on top of the flower.
- Don’t use Moon Rocks when you have a busy day. This “weed on steroids” is so strong that it will keep you in the “I don’t give a damn” state of mind for the rest of the day.
- Moon Rocks are known for inducing a heavy case of cottonmouth and munchies, so first, you need to stay well hydrated; and second — prepare your favorite snacks or get yourself a hearty meal, whether homemade or ordered.
