If you’re familiar with cannabis culture you’ve probably heard of or encountered moon rocks. If you haven’t, moon rocks are an extremely potent way to consume cannabis. They’re made by taking a bud of cannabis, dipping/coating it with hash oil, and finally rolling it in kief. So just how potent are they? Well there’s plenty of variation and the exact percentage comes down to who made them and the quality of ingredients used, but the general consensus is around 50% THC. Now that we’ve defined moon rocks and know what ingredients we’ll be working with, here’s how to make your own moon rocks, a step by step guide.
Here’s what you’ll need to make moon rocks:
- Your choice strain of cannabis
- A thick concentrate, preferably hash oil
- Enough kief to coat your bud(s)
- A bowl for mixing
This process to make them can be scaled up or down depending on how much you’re looking to make.
Step 1: Choose Your Bud
Take some of your favourite cannabis flowers and place them in the bowl. It’s a good idea to plan what kind of moon rocks you’d like to make. For example, if you want Indica, Sativa, or a hybrid combination.
Step 2: Grab Your Concentrate
The concentrate you choose should be nice and thick as it’ll coat the buds better. If your concentrate is too thick, simply heat it up until it’s malleable.
Step 3: Coat the Bud
You want an even coat over your cannabis flower. Note that you don’t want too thick of a coating as it could result in difficulty lighting them and long drying times. You’ll want to use your tongs here to ensure a nice even coating.
Step 4: Dry the moon rocks and Coat them With Kief
Let the moon rocks dry and finally, add your kief for the finishing touches. Once you’re finished, they should look similar to the image below.
To smoke moon rocks, it’s best to break them apart using scissors or some other cutting tool. Avoid putting them in your grinder as they’ll just clog it up and possibly even ruin it. They’re best smoked using pipes or bongs, but can be rolled into a nice joint if made correctly. However, when making your own moon rocks, it’s not recommended to roll joints as they probably won’t light properly.
Please note that they are extremely potent and should be smoked in moderation. Remember you can always smoke more if you’re not high enough, but you can’t reverse the effects if you’ve had too much.
