Above, a rare example where the moon rock quality is probably fire

Beneath the smoke and mirrors, though, the layered and covered cannabis flower also acts as a spruced-up disguise for poor-quality product. Since the flower is covered in oil, and the oil is covered in a fine dusting of green or gold kief, consumers looking at moon rocks in a dispensary haven’t a clue what kind of flower or concentrate they are getting. Even black market dealers let you look at and smell the weed before you buy anythinig. With moon rocks, that quality assurance preview is shrouded in kief and mystery.
Moon rocks, also known as caviar buds, are marijuana’s answer to the Long Island iced tea; they’re all about excess. A bud that’s been covered in sappy concentrates and rolled in kief, moon rocks are a multi-layered miniature boulder of densely-packed pot. Made both by professionals and green-thumbs at home, moon rocks are often comprised of a variety of strains, waxes, oils, and concentrates. Depending on the quality of ingredients, their THC content can spike well above 50 percent.

When it comes to consuming moon rocks, the process is no better than the product itself. Kief almost always gets stuck on fingers, scissors, and every other surface it comes in contact with, and the oil used in moon rocks is either too sticky or too brittle to be properly handled. And don’t even think about putting moon rocks in a grinder, or you’ll be on the way to the smoke shop for a new one before you even get a chance to smoke.
“[They’re] usually crap nugs covered in worse oil, hidden in some kief,” user PWWMC added in the same thread.
On camera, moon rocks look mesmerizing. They can be pulled apart like taffy, and the kief bunches and flakes as the wax stretches, eventually revealing a green bud in the center like a cannabis Kinder Egg. On Instagram, the high-octane product type has found stardom. To wit, the hashtag #moonrock has been tagged more than 499,000 times on countless accounts known for their weed porn sensibilities.
First popularized by California rapper Kurupt and producer Dr. Zodiak in 2014, moon rocks have since gained hype across the legal and black market as a luxury item, costing anywhere from $40$65 per gram in cities like Los Angeles. On the black market, those prices can jump even higher. And like any other perceived premium product, it didn’t take long for moon rocks to turn into a full-blown cannabis consumer fad.
America’s legal weed industry has facilitated the research and development of cannabis products at a pace that would make Silicon Valley blush. From the near-ubiquity of high potency flower dripping in white trichomes, to a gamut of recently-honed extraction techniques that offer new bouquets of flavor and effects, the cannabis available today is more intense than ever before. But for every new discovery or development, there are just as many products that don’t make the cut for the industry’s new high standards. And when it comes to green rush misses, moon rocks are at the top of my shit list.

Moon rocks — cannabis flower covered in concentrates and rolled in kief — are highly priced, hyped, and potent. But beneath the smoke and mirrors, they’re nothing but a messy marijuana fad.
