What Are Moon Rocks Weed?
Moon rocks are a mix of weed, cannabis oil and hash or kief. Moon Rocks start with a dank primo cannabis bud that gets sprayed with or dipped in hash oil and finished off by rolling the hash caked bud in kief shake. Basically, it’s a big nug cover in concentrate, super loaded with THC.
How to make moon rocks?
As I have previously mentioned, moon rocks are made from cannabis nugs that are covered in cannabis oil and then rolled in cannabis dust (kief).
So let me elaborate a bit on that.
However simple it may sound, it takes a lot of skill and dedication to make the perfect moon rock.
Just so that nobody can say “I told you so” here’s a warning:
While making your first couple of batches of moon rocks, you might want to do it with someone who actually has some experience in making them.
Of course, there is no way to become experienced unless you do it on your own but it’s smarter to consult someone with experience during your first several moon rock batches. The reason being is that combining oil, kief and flower into a perfect high is basically an art form of its own.
If you are an avid self-learner and are settled on making a batch from scratch feel free to follow the recipe below.
Step 1) Get a good nug
Take a large nug. As large as you can find.
Clean off all the stems from the flower.
Ideally, you want your future moon rock to be the size of a medium strawberry.
Remember to always choose nugs that are harder and more compact, and if you can get your hands on the tip of the main cola, I’d say you’ve just hit the moon rock jackpot.
Step 2) Roll your nug in cannabis oil
The next step is to cover your bud with cannabis oil.
You can do this with any smaller paint brush, just make sure that the hairy tip of the brush is as wide as your pinky finger.
I recommend that you hold the nug with tweezers during this process, as you will want to have as little hash oil on your hands as possible.
The nug should be totally covered in oil, but it should not be dripping.
Step 3) Coat the nug with kief
Pull out the kief from your grinder and slowly roll the oil-coated nug in it, with a pair of tweezers.
Once you have rolled the oil-coated nugs in kief, set them aside on a piece of paper to dry.
I recommend drying your newly made moon rocks for at least 45 to 60 minutes.
After the drying period is over, store them in a dark and dry area.
If you store them properly (without exposing them to sunlight) moon rocks can be stored basically forever.
