The mysterious genesis of Moon Rocks remains a bit hazy, yet conjecture suggests that Starbudz760 was the very first dispensary to create them. West Coast rap icon Kurupt subsequently popularized this product and even trademarked his own edition called the Kurupt Moonrock!
Moon rocks are a heavenly combination of THC goodness: Cannabis buds dipped in hash oil, then rolled in kief. Typically GSC is chosen but any strain will do! Not only does this concoction pack quite the punch, it also gives you an added bonus – that wonderful crunchy texture and flavor we all know and love. If you haven’t tried moon rocks yet, what are you waiting for?
How potent are moon rocks?
Moon rocks are renowned for their extraordinary strength, with an average potency hovering around 50% THC. This is significantly higher than the typical flower’s 20%, meaning each hit will provide quite the experience. While variance may occur depending on production and maker, you can be sure that this strain packs a punch!
Now the high? It’s simply out of this world! From your head to your toes, a moon rock high gradually ascends and you’ll suddenly realize that you’ve attained an untouchable peak that can’t be replicated. This is not for the faint-hearted, so get ready for something truly extraordinary!
Pros and cons of smoking moon rocks
- They will get you super duper high
- Cost effective—just like dabs, a little bit goes a long way
- Great for medical patients or other folks who want a high dose of THC
- They’re a fun novelty and good conversation-starter
- They will get you super duper high (not always a good thing for everyone)

Just how potent are moon rocks?
Moon rocks are renowned for their impressive THC content, and it’s true – they include an average of 50% or higher. It’s normal to see a range of potency from one product to the next due to the flower, concentrate, and kief all having separate levels of strength. So if you’re looking for something with an extra kick when it comes to cannabis consumption, moon rocks might be just what you need! Moon rocks are usually packed with potent layers of concentrate, making it an especially strong product. To keep your first-time smokers safe, don’t offer them a bowl full of moon rock! You should also note that CBD moon rocks will be similarly high in CBD levels.
Bottom line: Inspect the label for a potency breakdown to ensure you are purchasing certified moon rocks so that you can trust in their accuracy.
How to smoke moon rocks
If you’re a seasoned cannabis consumer, moon rocks are essential to your repertoire! To get the most out of your moon rock experience, here’s some advice on what to expect and how best to prepare.
If you’re using moon rocks, it’s best to opt for glassware such as a bong or pipe. These cannabis products are unlike regular flower – they’re thick and greasy which means that you must break them apart like ripping apart a Nerds Rope candy bar with the help of another person!
Don’t even think of rolling up moon rocks by itself – you would need to purchase 18 grams at the least, and it won’t stay lit like a standard blunt or joint.
Throw it on top of some flower
Moon rocks have a slick consistency, which makes lighting and maintaining the cherry difficult. Thankfully, simply sprinkling them atop some flower will solve your problems!
By using moon rocks weed sprinkled on top of a regular bud, you can make your own joint or blunt that will send you to the highest level of bliss. Forget about being concerned with how high it’s going to get – just know that it’ll be at the very peak! crafted blunts and joints made from moon rocks weed create an unparalleled experience unlike any other.
Finish all of your daily tasks before smoking
Everyone loves to get high and have a little fun, but moon rocks offer a different kind of experience. If you plan on doing any sort of physical activity or task that requires focus, it’s best to do them prior to smoking this strain; otherwise you’ll just keel over into a deep sleep without completing anything! Save yourself the stress later by getting your important tasks done before indulging in some “me-time.”
Don’t make the same error I did – when I tried to write a masterpiece after smoking moon rocks, my fingers felt like lead and it crippled me from producing 1,500 words of literary brilliance. This level of high had taken over my soul and rendered me incapable of writing anything at all!
Safety tips for smoking moon rocks
Eat before smoking
The phrase you want to remember is “before.” If a moon rock has been too intense, consume something prior and it should help protect yourself from becoming nauseous. Additionally, this will likely keep your cravings for snacks at bay as well.
You’re going to be so damn dehydrated that you’ll look like Spongebob when Sandy had him in the air dome for the first time ever. The cottonmouth is real.
When you’re about to partake in a smoking session with moon rocks, make sure you have one gallon of water readily available next to you; when the high kicks in, it’ll be too much effort for your body’s most basic functions—like getting up and grabbing yourself some refreshingly cold H2O.
When the munchies hit, you want to make sure you have some tasty snacks ready. Chocolate covered almonds are a great option – they’re absolutely delicious!
Choose the right environment
The environment in which you consume your moon rocks is of utmost importance. Surround yourself with positive energy and make sure the space around you radiates a soothing ambiance that brings life to your soul. Once consumed, all you’ll want to do is relax into yourself – so choose wisely when it comes to selecting furniture for optimal comfort!
Start low, go slow
Start out small with edibles and increase gradually – take a little hit, space it out. Believe me, you’ll get to Mars soon enough!
How much can I expect to pay for moon rocks?
If you’ve ever guessed, moon rocks usually have a higher price tag for each gram or eighth (3.5 grams) than top-tier flowers. Depending on the caliber of the flower, concentrate and kief used to make them, expect your average moon rock’s cost to be more expensive than an equal amount of buds. However worth noting; since it contains three ingredients combined with its remarkable potency compared to that of just one flower alone – this is definitely justified!
My favorite strain and always will be. Amazing taste smell and high, Most euphoric indica I’ve ever tried.
Great strain for my anxiety for me anyways, & a great keif maker in your grinder faster than other strains lol 10/10
This was one of the first strains I ever smoked in a blunt, many moons ago… oh wow… the fact that I can remember the experience vividly tells me that northern lights is not a strain to be taken lightly. I haven’t tried it since that night, but now that I’m a seasoned smoker, I am very anxious to give it another whirl.
Love this strain, gets you in a long happy, euphoric and relaxed high. Love it!
I am old school so this is one of my favorite strains. Love that piney taste and how mellow my head and body get. This is an old standby for me for sure! I haven’t had any flower lately but am super glad to have my Select Strains cartridge to puff on now and then!
This strain is my absolute favorite. The taste is amazing. Its super strong so be careful.
Smoothe and great smell. Not sure on the tHc percentage. Fluffy and crystalized. No harshness after inhaling. It relaxes neck muscles and shoulders instantly. Very good for working patients.
I suffer from insomnia and when I have this strain I know i’m going to be in for a good nights sleep. Is also brilliant after a stressful day at work. One of my favorite indicas. 10/10
So relaxing. I was very sleepy, but it was late at night. It didn’t knock me out though which was good. It was just a really blissful and relaxing feeling.
This is one of my favorites… so so relaxing and a real chill… go check it out at Ponderosa Releif in Glendale… this is fire!!!
I’m a very experienced smoker and I gotta say damn this shit hits right it’s rough on the lungs for a sec but the after effect is a smooth buttery taste and the high is fuckin on point got the body and mind fully involved I recommend
