What Are Moon Rocks and How Do You Smoke Them?
If you haven't been so high that you can't feel your eyebrows, then you may need to learn how to smoke Moon Rocks.
Moon Rocks and their origination are kind of fuzzy. However, according to rumors, they were concocted by a marijuana dispensary known as Starbudz760. It is also said that Kurupt, a famous rapper on the West Coast and Dr. Zodiak, Kurupt’s partner trademarked a version of the product and continued to popularize it. Today, Dr. Zodiak’s Moon Rocks are available in a variety of cannabis strain and concentrate flavor combinations including Vanilla Mango, Peaches N’ Cream, Black Cherry, Vanilla Ice Cream, and Banana.
When you think about Moon Rocks, you would equate them with cannabis buds with a high level of THC. You would use any cannabis strain and dip them in hash oil or spray them with hash oil, after which, you would roll the joint in kief. The potency will vary, depending on how the product is made and the person who produced it. Most times, the THC level is about fifty percent. If you are an advanced recreational cannabis user, Moon Rocks would be highly recommended for you because of the powerful punch that it packs. Now, let's look at how you should prepare yourself for the smoking experience.
Why Consume Moon Rocks?
Moon Rocks may be dismissed as a sticky mess, but on special occasions, these product hybrids are a fail-safe way to get significant relief. Moon Rock’s high THC levels come at a premium price, but also provide some value in terms of its potency. Moon Rocks are the decadent offering you can pull out to treat yourself or friends. Moon Rocks can be an alternative to low-dose edibles that contain about 10 mg of THC per serving. Medicinal patients can enjoy a fun and strong way to get the relief they need for chronic pain, inflammation, spasms, and other medical conditions. While you can certainly make your own Moon Rocks, you can also buy pre-made ones from your dispensary.
Avoid the Grinder
Weed grinders can undermine the entire purpose of your resin-covered Moon Rocks. Avoid putting in any broken down Moon Rocks inside a grinder. The grinder’s sharp teeth may do a good job of breaking up the weed, but you’ll be left with a sticky and unmanageable mess with wax and kief stuck in every crevice of the grinder. Not only will you ruin the Moon Rocks, but also the grinder. Instead, use your hands or some scissors or a knife to keep the carefully-assembled layers intact as best as you can.
You could smoke Moon Rocks using glassware such as a pipe or bong. Why? You are not smoking the usual flower since it is greasy and thick. And so, you will have to deal with it differently. For example, if you are going to roll it in a joint, it won't work. You won't get enough of it to roll unless you are going to buy about eighteen grams. And you won't be able to keep it burning like you would a normal joint.
Pack your glass piece’s bowl loosely when smoking Moon Rocks to improve the airflow when you’re inhaling and prevent a clogged bowl. The cannabis concentrate can melt as you smoke and run down the sides of your bowl and inside your piece. Moon Rocks are an elevated version of your traditional buds, so consider your dose size carefully. A smaller bowl size may be more approachable than your usual dose of flower. Moon rocks should never be used with a dry herb or concentrate vaporizer. The mixed material will spill into your vaporizer oven and other crucial components.

Put On Top of Some Flower
Moon Rocks is very greasy in texture, making it difficult to light. And so, you should consider smoking it by throwing it on the top of some flower. It will make have an intense high. You could go a step further and break up the Moon Rocks and then sprinkle on top of the grounded cannabis buds. In so doing, you may be able to roll a joint, making it work for you.
Adding Moon Rock bits into your joints, spliffs, and blunts takes some finesse. Breaking apart Moon Rocks is hard enough. You want to break or cut apart small pieces of Moon Rocks that can fit inside your joint without obstructing airflow. Since Moon Rocks are slightly harder to burn and keep lit, you may need to re-light your joint throughout the smoking session to avoid an uneven burn.
Are Moon Rocks Dangerous?
Like many other cannabis concentrate products, Moon Rocks may not be the best product for first-time or low-tolerance cannabis users. Moon Rocks feature at least 50 percent THC levels, more than 20 percent more than conventional whole-flower buds. The significant increase in THC can cause discomfort for the uninitiated. For best results, start off with the smallest dose possible of Moon Rocks and gradually increase your dose to get to your desired effects.
Moon Rocks are extremely potent and can quickly overwhelm you if you’re not used to smoking or vaporizing cannabis flower and concentrate with such high potencies of THC. Side effects can include paranoia, anxiety, confusion, and headaches. Check out our tips on how to avoid greening out to have a safe and fun Moon Rock experience.
What are CBD Moon Rocks?
Looking for an alternative to the mega-high experienced from consuming THC Moon Rocks? CBD Moon Rocks are made from hemp flower and hemp-derived wax concentrate and kief. Hemp can produce CBD-rich flower with trace amounts of THC that won’t produce a high. While CBD Moon Rocks won’t cause a high, you should still proceed with caution. Overconsuming CBD Moon Rocks can cause some mild lightheadedness and dizziness. CBD Moon Rocks can be consumed just like THC Moon Rocks.
What are Sun Rocks?
Sun Rocks are a popular and more potent alternative to the traditional Moon Rocks available at dispensaries. Sun Rocks look just like their counterparts, but instead of having an opaque cannabis concentrate and kief that’s covering your buds, a nearly translucent oil blankets buds with a heavy dusting of kief. The entire concoction packs up to 80 percent THC using the highest-quality buds, rosin, and kief.
Smoke At The End of The Day
Before Moon Rocks consumption, make sure you finish everything you have to do for the day. With that kind of high, you won't be able to do anything meaningful. It might make you pass out and then wake up feeling stressed and annoyed about all the things you should have done, but didn't. Never make that mistake. Once you reach that level of intense high, not even your finger will work. Believe it!
When you smoke this, it will make you feel dehydrated. In fact, you might feel like someone sucked water out of you. So, it is important to remain hydrated as much as possible. Drink a gallon of water, if you can while you are smoking the Moon Rocks. Once you get that high, you are not going to be interested in getting up to grab water. Make sure you have it handy before you start smoking. The same thing goes for snacking. Have your snacks close to you. Learn How to Smoke Moon Rocks and stay hydrated so you stay healthy while smoking your moon rocks.
The Appropriate Environment
If you are going to smoke Moon Rocks, be sure you are in a comfortable environment and one that will give you a good vibe. Comfort is important because you are going to be out and in a stuck mode, so much that all you want to do is chill. To learn more about Moon Rocks, enroll in our cannabis certification training!
