Learning the history of moon rock weed and how they are made is not only interesting to know, but is fundamental knowledge in cannabis culture. Moon rocks weed is a creative way to elevate your smoking experience. 

What is a Weed Moon Rock? 

Moon rock weed is a form of cannabis that combines three different forms of potent THC. A form of cannabis hash oil, kief, and flower creates an insanely potent and flavorful nug to smoke. The high from moon rocks weed is certainly not something to underestimate. Unless you are a casually regular cannabis consumer, moon rocks will undoubtedly have you feeling out of this world, in another dimension. 

Many cannabis experts will reference moon rocks and cannabis caviar as the same, although there is a distinction between the two. Cannabis caviar is similar to moon rock weed, except these nugs are dipped in cannabis oil, compared to moon rocks that are covered in kief.

The history of weed moon rocks stems from the long relationship between cannabis culture and hip-hop. Early 1990’s rapper Kurupt partnered with hip-hop artist Dr. Zodiak to create the mixtape project Dr. Zodiak’s Moonrock, which eventually launched a whole branded moon rocks line of products. Since then, many brands and dispensaries have experimented with their own moon rocks creations although all require the same ingredients to be made.

When the rise of moon rock weed first took off, many were originally made with GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) strain, but today there are many different strains and varieties available to create moon rock weed. If you have your own moon rock weed ingredients available, making your own cannabis concoction is simple and fun!  

What You’ll Need

  • Flower strain of your choice (at least one nug’s worth) 
  • Cannabis concentrate/hash oil 
  • A big bowl of kief 
  • Tongs (or some sort of grabbing gear) 
  • A liquid dropper 

How To Make Moon Rock Weed 

  1. Grab about one or two nugs of your flower, the denser the better.
  2. Grab your cannabis concentrate. If it is super thick and tough, heat up a small bit until the concentrate is more liquidy. Be careful not to heat too much and burn your cannabis!
  3. Using your liquid dropper, completely cover your bud in the liquid cannabis concentration. Use tongs to hold the cannabis nug and cover every side.
  4. Using your tongs, grab the bud and roll it in the kief until the entire nug is dusted in shiny green goodness.
  5. Let your cannabis concoction dry. Depending on their density, some nugs will dry quicker than others. As long as it’s completely dried, you’re ready to enjoy your moon rocks.

Here’s what to know about smoking moon rock weed: 

  • Use scissors to break the moon rocks into smaller pieces.
  • Don’t put them in a grinder!
  • Use smoking glassware as opposed to rolling joints or blunts.
  • Don’t pack a bowl of moon rocks too tightly to ensure you lose as little kief as possible.

The tough and slight stickiness of moon rock weed makes it best to smoke out of glass pieces or bowls. Rolling joints or blunts with moon rock pieces inside is possible, but keep in mind the sticky texture and thickness of the coated nug. Attempting to use a grinder to break the moon rocks into smaller pieces will add gunk to your grinder and remove most of the coating. 

Oftentimes, those who smoke moon rock weed will also be prepared to experience this high in a comfortable environment. Find an environment or activity that is encouraging to the vibe. Listening to trippy music or watching trippy movies is a great way to enjoy your moon rocks experience.
