Moonrocks: Everything You Need To Know About The World's Best Bud


Anyone familiar with the world of cannabis culture has probably at some point heard about “moonrocks.” Despite the fact that moonrocks are one of the strongest forms of cannabis anywhere in the world, these little treasures are still relatively obscure.

But not anymore. This article will cover everything you need to know about moonrocks so you can discover the mind-blowing joys of these super potent nugs.

A Little Terminology

First things first. Let’s get our vocab straight.

The term “moonrocks” is sometimes used to describe pure MDMA crystals. But that’s not what we’re talking about here.

We’re talking about cannabis moonrocks.

You might also hear people talk about “cannabis caviar.”

This term is sometimes used as another name for moonrocks. Sometimes it’s used to describe a variation of moonrocks. Either way, it’s basically the same thing.

To keep things simple, we’re just going to stick with the term moonrocks.

What are moonrocks anyway?

Moonrocks are basically a bud smoker’s dream come true.

Strictly speaking, moonrocks aren’t an actual strain. They’re more of a product that’s made by combining a bunch of different cannabis goodies into a single ball of pure weed joy.

They’re nugs of cannabis—very often Girl Scout Cookies—that have been soaked in hash oil and then covered in a nice layer of pure kief.

When people talk about cannabis caviar, they’re usually either talking about the exact same thing. But sometimes, you’ll see dispensaries selling caviar that’s just a nug soaked in oil, but without the layer of kief.

The end result of all this are some strangely beautiful nugs.

The outer layer of kief looks like some sort of alien body armor. And if you crack one open, you get an amazing cross section view of the whole thing, kief, oil, and flower.

The sticky icky, gooey guts look like they’re protected by a shield of solid cannabis pollen.

This is a seriously out of the world concoction.

Where did moonrocks come from?

While the precise origins of these genius pot creations are hard to track down, most people point to rapper turned cannabis entrepreneur Kurupt as one possibility.

The L.A.-based artist and business person has his own trademarked line of moonrocks called “Kurupt’s Moonrock.”

The company’s website claims that they were invented by Kurupt and fellow rapper Dr. Zodiak.

But beyond the name brand Kurupt’s Moonrock, moonrocks or variations on moonrock have also been sold at dispensaries around the country.

In fact, dispensaries in Colorado have been known to sell different variations on moonrock for as much as $1,400 an ounce.

So what’s all the hype about?

Simply put, moonrocks are the strongest form of cannabis you’ll find anywhere. Period.

The reasons for this should be obvious.

When you take a puff on a moonrock you’re simultaneously hitting high grade flower, super concentrated oil, and pure kief.

Many people, including Kurupt, claim that this combination produces a product with 51.2% THC.

That’s so much THC that just a puff or two could send even the most seasoned pot smoker sky high.

Just take a look at how Snoop Dogg handles these bad boys.

After just a few puffs the godfather of weed is puffy eyed and happily babbling on and on about the pure power of moonrocks.

How to make your own moonrock

Probably the best news of all is that moonrocks are also pretty easy to make all on your own.

Here’s how.

First, gather up your ingredients: a few decent-sized nugs, some kief, and a little hash oil.

Tweezers and a pastry brush will also come in handy.

To get the process started, carefully use your tweezers to hold a bud. Use your pastry brush to gently cover the whole thing in a layer of oil.

From there you can either move on to the kief stage, or you can let it sit and let the oil really soak in. If you let it soak in, you might need to apply another coat of oil. One way or another, you want the bud to be sticky on the outside.

Once you’re satisfied with your oil-nug combo you’re ready to move on.

Now it’s time to carefully cover the whole thing in kief. Be sure the kief sticks to the oil. Get the entire thing covered in a solid layer of pollen.

Now let your moonrocks rest and dry. That’s pretty much all there is to it.

How to use the moonrock?

You can use moonrocks pretty much the same way you use regular bud.

The only thing you need to watch out for is that nice layer of kief. When you break up a moonrock, be sure you don’t lose any of your kief.

For that reason, you probably want to avoid grinders and carefully use a sharp knife instead.

After you carefully chop up your moonrock, roll it up into a joint, pack a bowl, or load it into a water pipe. Pretty much anything.

You can even use these super potent buds to make edibles. We recommend starting out with this recipe for mind-blowing moonrocks brownies.

Whatever you do with your moonrock, you should be extra careful to avoid wasting anything.

Since moonrocks are three separate forms of cannabis all wrapped up into a single nug, and since these amazing creations can be a little on the spendy side, you don’t want any of it to go to waste.

Now that you’re a moonrocks expert, it’s time to put your newfound knowledge to work.

Whether you buy your moonrocks whole or make your own from scratch, we’re confident they’ll give you a cannabis experience you’ll never forget.
