Of all the different cannabis-based products that have taken center stage over the past few years, Moon Rock (or more precisely Moon Rock marijuana) has reached an area of popularity that we haven’t seen since the concentrate explosion.
This product is a crazy scientific blend of a few simple ingredients that when combined can give you a big punch. But there is a lot of confusion in the cannabis scene about what Moon Rock really is.
Some people associated the name with harder drugs while others think it is a unique variety. Both are not true. To clear up the ambiguity behind Moon Rock, here is a crash course on the subject.
Moon Rock marijuana is simply a mix of raw flower, hash oil, and kief. It is a triple threat created by covering buds with oil and dusting them with a kief dust.
When done correctly, the finished product looks a lot like a moldy piece of mystery meat. But Moon Rock is far from trash. It’s one of the most powerful forces in the cannabis market today – it all depends on the initial strength and quality of the three main ingredients.

But how strong is Moon Rock? Let’s just say it’s not for beginners. It typically comes with around 50% THC. However, it’s not uncommon for THC levels to be in the triple digits. It is the everclear of the weed world. So make your schedule clear.

While the effectiveness of moon rocks is a big part of making it so popular, it is actually the synergy between the three ingredients that creates its magical effects. The easiest way to explain this is that Bud, Oil and Keif work together to create a particular enthusiasm. For this reason, every moon rock creation offers the opportunity to experience different effects.
Although moonstones can be made at home, the process from start to finish can be very extensive. If you’re one of those people who can’t make a grilled cheese sandwich without burning the bread, making it yourself is probably not the best way to go.

Fortunately, most pharmacies carry moon rocks. But not all are made with high quality ingredients. Before you cough up your hard earned cash on this product at your local pharmacy, be sure to ask the Budtender questions about how it is made.
Just by looks, it can be relatively easy to identify a quality product above a below average. High grade lunar rock has a thicker keif dust. It also has an extremely pungent odor. If you really have to try hard to catch a whiff, this probably isn’t the best quality.
Have a good trip, space cadets!
