Moonrocks is one of the latest products in the cannabis market, suited for smokers with a high tolerance, it’s a way of consuming different cannabis products at once, expect an overwhelming high. Moonrocks are cannabis products that consist of a bud covered in an extract and then powdered with kief, it’s one of the most expensive and potent products out there.  After using cannabis for an extended period of time, users develop a tolerance to THC—the principal psychoactive component within weed buds. Put simply, this means people need larger quantities of THC in order to feel the same effect. Naturally, users simply start to use more flowers per session at first. However, this soon becomes an ineffective and inefficient means of smoking. There are only so many bong hits you can inhale in an hour! From here, smokers tend to simply select stronger strains that contain more THC.

However, they soon develop a tolerance to these resin-rich buds, too. High-potency extracts and dabs are a good alternative in order to get more THC into the body in a short period of time. Being a creative bunch, weed users have also come up with much more creative ways in order to experience a fasting-acting and hard-hitting high, such as moon rocks. These impressive creations are completely loaded with cannabinoids and terpenes. While not suitable for novice growers, they provide a quick and easy way for veterans to elevate themselves to where exactly they want to be! Below, you'll discover everything you need to know about moon rocks. You’ll learn about how they’re made, what to do if you get too baked, how to consume them, and even how to make them at home by growing your own cannabis seeds.

1. What Are Moonrocks?

Moonrocks are a form of cannabis that mixes kief, dabs, and flowers, no one knows exactly where they originated but they became popular in the 1990s when Kurupt and his partner, Dr. Zodiak were looking to elevate their smoking experience and smoke a THC-rich product.

Moonrocks: what are they?

What are moonrocks?

They came up with the original moonrocks, called Dr. Zodiak’s moonrocks, and they have won several Cannabis Cups Awards, being the standard in quality. Nowadays, you can find several brands available, just have in mind that they may not be like Dr. Zodiak’s product and the quality and potency will differ, some suppliers use low-quality kief, extracts, and flowers, and even though they’re still potent, if you really want to try the best, you should go for the original.

Are All Moonrocks Made Equal?

Moonrocks may look amazing but can something really so pretty on the outside be just as nice on the inside? Well, we are about to find out the truth behind what moonrocks are really made with. To be completely honest most moonrocks you buy in today's market are made with poor-quality flower. The reason most cultivators make moonrocks is that they are trying to find something they can do with the flower that did not meet the standard to be sold as flower at the dispensary. How could there be a better way to market flower that no one wants to buy by just putting some lower-end wax and kief to hide all that dark lackluster bud.

Now, in no way we're saying that all moonrocks are made with bad products. Unfortunately, a lot of cultivators are in it for the money and not the quality so it will take some weeding through to actually find some great moonrocks. In the end, you will be happy you did not rush to buy the first rocks you saw. Remember people vote with your dollars!! It really makes all the difference in the world. 

2. Moonrocks vs Sunrocks

Due to the evolution of cannabis legalization and the cannabis market, especially in California, new products have appeared and due to the popularity of moonrocks, brands have been trying to innovate and have come up with sunrocks. Sunrocks are the same as moonrocks but don’t contain kief, this product focuses on having less quantity but of a higher quality, unlike moonrocks where you cannot see the buds and you may be buying a low-quality flower hidden under bad wax and covered with the cheapest kief available, sunrocks basically consists of a top-shelf flower drizzled with a top-shelf extract.

By doing it this way, you can clearly see the quality of the flower under the extract layer, and even though there’s no kief on top, the extract is usually a nug run (made with top-shelf buds) so the final product usually ends up being stronger than most moonrocks.

3. Are They Potent?

A moonrock’s potency depends on the quality of the products used to make it but in general, moonrocks have around 50% THC which is quite a lot when compared to buds which usually have around 20%.


Cannabis products potency

Product THC percentage
Flower 20%
Extracts 25-35%
Moonrocks 50%
 Sunrocks 80%
Concentrates 60-90%


Now, if you think that’s not strong enough, you should go for sunrocks which can contain up to 80% THC, making them as strong as some extracts found in most dispensaries. When purchasing moonrocks or any cannabis product on the market make sure you don't only look at THC. The terpenes found in cannabis are far more important than the highest number of THC. If you find moonrocks with a terpene content of five percent or higher we can promise you an amazing experience.  

Safety tips for beginners

Eat before smoking moonrocks

Moonrocks are too potent so if you’re not used to it, having something in your stomach will prevent you from getting nauseous.

Don’t forget to drink water

When smoking this product, your eyes and mouth will get dry so have a bottle of water near to avoid getting dehydrated.


Moonrocks: safety tips

If you're not an avid smoker, you should consume moonrocks in a comfortable place, preferably in your house.

Choose the right place

When consuming moonrocks, you’re going to be high for quite a lot of time so don’t smoke it in the streets, it’s better to consume it in a place where you feel comfortable and you can sit and relax.

Go slow

If you’re not used to getting too high, it’s better to go slow. Take a small hit, wait a couple of minutes, and then hit it again, you’ll definitely get high.

4. What Should I Do if I Am Too High?

The number one thing you always want to keep in mind when you are consuming stronger cannabis products like this is to always remain calm. This may sound easy but if you have ever been too high you know the feeling of pure anxiety. You start thinking about your breathing and your heart rate, soon enough you'll find yourself panicking on the phone talking to 911 thinking you are about to die. Don't worry, you can take a few precautionary measures to avoid any situation like this.

So first things first accept that you are stoned and you are about to be stoned for a while. Take a deep breath and understand it's going to be okay, reassure yourself no one has ever overdosed on cannabis and you won't be the first one either. So far if this hasn't helped you calm down yet you have nothing to fear. Go to your kitchen and go to your pepper grinder. You are going to want to unscrew the top of the pepper grinder and remove a few pepper kernels. Once you have about three or four kernels in the palm of your hand you'll want to pop them in your mouth, focus on the flavor and chew. The terpene that is found inside pepper kernels will actually calm you down and give you a little reality check to bring you back into a better state of mind.

5. How Are Moonrocks Made?

Moonrocks are the best way to get a potent and delicious high, most dispensaries offer moonrocks made with different strains, and when combining the terpene profile of different genetics you may end up getting the highest potency, flavor, and quality, that’s why these products are usually more appealing for avid smokers.

Moonrocks: how are they made

How moonrocks are made.

This product is basically made by taking a bud, this bud is then dipped or drizzled with an extract, and then the bud is then rolled in kief, making moonrocks full of terpenes and cannabinoids.

6. How To Consume Them?

Moonrocks can be consumed any way you want, either by rolling in into a joint, in a vape, pipe, or bong, obviously, it can get messy when handling it because the kief and extract layer will stick to your fingers so smoking it in a bong is the best way. Using moonrocks as a bowl topper could possibly be more effective than filling the entire bowl with moonrocks. This is because the wax inside the moonrocks will melt and if there is no material mixed with the moonrocks the wax will just drip down the stem of your bong making it very inconvenient to clean.  

7. Pros And Cons

Just like with any other cannabis product, moonrocks may be better suited for some and not for others so here some pros and cons before you try them.


Pros Cons
Great for those who want a THC-rich product. Beginner smokers need to be careful because they’re way stronger than regular buds.
Worth the money because a little bit is enough to get you super high. You cannot grind them in a grinder due to the sticky extract layer, you’ll have to break it down manually.
A novelty product that all cannabis enthusiasts should try at least once. Need to be kept in a cool place because the extract layer will melt.


8. How To Make Moonrocks At Home

Moonrocks are really easy to make at home, the hardest part is getting the things you need, but if you’re a grower or have a dispensary near, you can make moonrocks in 4 simple steps. You'll need:

  • Cannabis bud
  • Your favorite extract
  • Good-quality kief
  • Tongs or a tool to grab the moonrock
  • Liquid dropper

Step 1

Grab the bud you want to turn into a moonrock, have in mind that denser buds are better because they’ll hold the concentrate and kief layer better.

Step 2

Get your extract, if it’s thick you will need to heat it up a little bit, then put it in the dropper and cover your bud completely.

You don’t need to use the dropper but if you’re using too much concentrate it could take longer to dry and be hard to light it.

Step 3

Use the tongs to carefully grab the bud so the concentrate doesn’t stick to it and roll the bud in kief until it’s completely covered.

Step 4

Let your moonrock to dry for around 30min, once it’s completely dry, get ready to try it!

9. Tips 

Tip 1

It’s better to use a glass bong or pipe to smoke moonrocks because it’s thick, sticky, and cannot be ground finely, also, have in mind that even though you can roll it into a joint, it will be hard to keep it lit how a normal joint or blunt would stay.


Moonrocks: tips

Using a bong is the best way to avoid messing up your moonrocks.

Tip 2

If you really want to roll a blunt (or a joint) with your moonrocks, you’ll have to break it manually into smaller pieces and mix it with ground buds, this way your joint or blunt will stay lit as it should.

Tip 3

Finish your tasks or smoke it on the weekends because you will get high and if you’re not an avid consumer, it can be too strong for inexperienced smokers.
