In the beginning, there was cannabis. The people smoked it, vaped it, ate it, turned it into a concentrate, etc. One day in 2014, rapper and former Executive Vice President for Death Row Records and Dogg Pound alumni Kurupt, 45, put out a mixtape called Moon Rocks. That put the name Moon Rocks into popular culture and Kurupt capitalized by putting out his own line of Moon Rocks, aptly named Kurupts Moon Rock.
What IS it?
Moon Rocks is fine cannabis, hash oil and kief. Yes, all three. It starts with a nice fat bud of high quality weed. The bud or buds are completely soaked in hash oil. After it gets dipped in hash oil, it is then covered with kief or pollen, those pretty little crystals that collect in your grinder.
Moon Rocks sound incredible but it is probably not for those new to using cannabis. If you have never smoked weed before, starting with Moon Rocks might not be the world’s greatest choice. Not that I’m telling you what to do. By all means, stick your head in the dragon’s mouth if you are so inclined, but know what you are getting yourself into. THC levels for Kurupt´s Moon Rock typically taps out around 51%.
The high is full bodied and long lasting. You truly feel like you have taken off on a rocket ship, floating in outer space. Moon Rocks is a great way to relax and give your endocannabinoid system a real treat. Make sure you smoke Moon Rocks out of glassware for the best possible flavor and outcome. This stuff is sticky and moist and rolling it in a joint or blunt MIGHT happen but it will not stay lit – so go with glass.
Can I Make It Myself?
Creating this gooey cannabis concoction is like crafting for adults. Let go of the glitter Barbara and pick up the kief because it is time make some Moon Rocks.
A bud (or two or three or four)
Hash Oil or Concentrate
Kief, kief and more kief
Tweezers or tongs, whichever feel more comfy
- Select your first bud.
- If your chosen concentrate is an oil, use the eyedropper to distribute the amber colored goodness all over the bud. Use the tweezers or tongs to turn the bud while you saturate the flower. (If your chosen concentrate is something that needs a little warming to become viscous, heat it up until it becomes less solid and more liquid and either drip the concentrate all over your bud or dip it in the concentrate.) Do not forget to use the tweezers or tongs to ensure cleanliness and less waste.
- Continue to hold the concentrate covered cannabis bud with tweezers or tongs as you now roll the extra sticky flower around in kief. The more kief you can acquire for this process the better because you want this bud absolutely covered. Your nug will be totally unrecognizable at this point – that is GREAT!
- Go find something else to do for a while cause you need your Moon Rock to dry a little bit. How long is up to you really.
- What else is left? SMOKE IT!
Moon Rocks are a THC lovers paradise. Moon Rock weed may be one of the newer additions to the cannabis community but it is a very welcomed one! You may not have tried it yet, but at least now if you do, you will know what you are getting yourself into.
