Moon and SunRocks produce very unique effects. Some users compare them to dabs due to their potency, but the highs are really quite different.
MoonRocks and SunRocks are a special type of cannabis flower. Combining regular buds with oil and kief, these babies pack a big, potent punch.
While their composition is nearly identical (a bud coated in concentrate and sprinkled with kief), SunRocks are typically made using higher-grade products. They are currently being produced by two main manufacturers in California, Big Tray Deee and Apollo Sun Rocks.
MoonRocks are something special. They are made by taking a regular cannabis flower, covering it with some kind of oil (usually BHO like wax) and coating it in a thick dusting of kief. Pack one of these in your pipe and you’ve got yourself a return ticket to the moon, literally.
- Don’t grind them: A regular herb grinder will butcher these buds and likely struggle with their sticky texture. Instead, use your fingers or scissors to gently break them apart.
- Use a pipe, bong, or bubbler: At 60-80% THC, you don’t need a lot of these Rocks to get you flying. Hence, it’s best to use a pipe/bong with a small cone to avoid letting this stuff go to waste.
- Mix it with some regular weed: take it and sprinkle into some regular weed.
Cannabis connoisseurs are always looking for newer, better ways to enjoy their favourite flower. Two of the latest experiments to help consumers get more out of their weed are MoonRocks and SunRocks – concentrate-covered bud designed to take you out of this atmosphere.
SunRocks take things to another level. A SunRock is basically like MoonRock’s older, chain- smoking brother.
Both manufacturers take top-shelf buds (usually some kind of OG), dip them in a sticky layer of wax or similar concentrate, and then finish them off with a sprinkle of kief. Big Tray Deee’s Rocks usually feature a very thin layer of concentrate and kief, clocking in at about 80% THC. Apollo’s Rocks, however, typically boast a thicker layer of kief and roughly 60% THC.
Smoking Moon or SunRocks is a little different to smoking regular flower. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on these goodies, here are some tips to enjoy them properly.
In this article, we take a look at MoonRocks and SunRocks, two types of coated cannabis flower designed to produce a long-lasting trip.
Moon rocks have been in circulation for quite a while and are made using several different high THC producing cannabis strains bud as a base. Moon Rocks contain an average of 30%-50% THC content.
Sun Rocks are relatively new to the cannabis market and are essentially an improved version of Moon Rocks. A Sun Rocks bud can easily contain 50%-80% THC content. Sun rocks require all products used to be made by OG Kush.
How to make Sun Rocks
- The bud base used in making moon rocks is usually a high THC yielding Indica strain like Girl Scout Cookies or Green Crack. Gather enough buds to create at least a few moon rocks to start.
- Now for the layer of BHO, since moon rocks don’t require extra filtered BHO, the concentrate will more often than not be dark and impossible to see through. You can coat your buds with either a spreading tool or by dipping each one into the BHO.
- As you dip each one, you will want to coat it in a layer of kief or crystals until it is evenly coated enough to handle without getting your fingers sticky.
- If there is still any exposed portion of bud redip and coat in kief once more.
- Allow drying for at least two hours to harden for the best experience.
Sun Rocks vs Moon Rocks
Making Moon Rocks has the added benefit of being able to gather your ingredients required with the least effort since every part can be derived from a different cannabis strain. To make moon rocks, you will need three things.
- The first step is ensuring you make an extra filtered BHO Oil from the same bud you will be using.
- Once the oil is ready to use, you can use any metal spreading tool to coat as much of the bud as possible. You want it thick enough to be considered covered, but you should still be able to see the bud through the BHO. The purer the BHO, the more you will be able to add as it will appear more transparent and glasslike.
- Once coated set aside to harden. The BHO will form a casing that will harden and shine. Hardening may take 1-2 hours.
- Once hardened coat the remaining portion that was covered with your fingers. This should be the widest base of the bud.
- Dip the still fresh BHO bottom portion of the bud into kief.
- Allow enough time to dry approximately one to two hours before handling and smoking your fresh made Sun Rocks.
Moon rocks are easy to make because they don’t require any extra processing and can be made using ingredients from various sources.
