What Are Purple Moon Rocks?
It’s the caviar of Purple Moon Rocks cannabis. The marijuana product known as “Moon Rocks” starts with fine cannabis buds — historically, Girl Scout Cookies, but any top-shelf flowers will do. The moon rocks marijuana buds are then dipped in hash oil and sprinkled with kief. That’s right, stoners, the holy trinity: bud, hash oil, and kief, all in one delicious product. And, let’s face it. Moon Rocks are aesthetically pleasing, which is a fancy way of saying it looks cool AF.
The innovation was reportedly developed and promoted (and some say invented) by rapper and businessman Kurupt, formerly of The Dogg Pound, along with fellow rapper Dr. Zodiak.
How To Make Moon Rocks Marijuana?
You only need high-quality cannabis flowers, hash oil, and kief. The importance of starting with good weed can’t be overstated. Making Moon Rocks is not the time to cut corners.
Making Moon Rocks is a perfect opportunity to exercise your creativity by mixing and matching different types of cannabis flowers, hash oil, and kief. Imagine Green Crack Kief covering a Strawberry Cough flower infused with Snoop’s Dream hash oil. The strain combination possibilities are endless.
Hash oil is extracted from cannabis, often using a solvent such as butane or alcohol. The hash oil’s viscosity provides the stickiness needed to hold on to the kief. The oil can be thick and difficult to manipulate. If that’s the case, gently heat it to soften and liquefy. Keep the heat low so as not to vaporize the cannabinoids.
Kief, of course, is the fine powder composed of dried resin glands (the trichomes we know and love) found on cannabis flowers. It just so happens that these trichomes are where cannabinoids, including THC, are found.
It helps to have tweezers or tongs on hand to hold the buds as you dip them in hash oil. But dipping isn’t necessary. You can also brush the oil with a pastry brush or deposit it on the flower with a dropper until it’s thickly layered. Let the oil soak in a few minutes, then add more (this is no time for half-measures). Let the second layer soak in, then roll or dip the slippery bud in kief until no more will stick. After a few minutes of drying, these Moon Rocks are ready to get you stoned.
Why Purple Moon Rocks Weed?
So, what’s the big advantage of Moon Rocks over regular cannabis flowers? It’s the fact that you get twice as much THC with every toke. Do the math; fifty percent THC vs. 20 or 25 percent THC?
Beyond the brute force of massive amounts of THC, Moon Rocks taste wonderful. Smoking them in a pipe gives a terpene-rich hit that contains the tastes of top-shelf flower, potent hash oil, and synapse-tickling kief all at once.
How To Smoke Moon Rocks?
Moon Rocks don’t burn as easily as regular buds, so consuming them in common form can be difficult (not to mention potentially wasteful). So, how to smoke Moon Rocks? The recommended method is to put them in a glass bong or pipe. Try the G-Spot Beaker Ice Bong for a super cool and fresh sesh.
You don’t want to use a grinder on Moon Rocks. That would be almost sacrilegious, and besides, you’d lose a lot of hash oil and kief in the process because it would stick to the grinder. You are breaking them up by hand results in too much good stuff getting stuck to your fingertips. If possible, you want to chop them up with a knife or break them up with tweezers.
When preparing purple moonrocks strain for smoking, you’ll have to carefully break them up, piece by piece. While their texture can make them challenging to light and to keep lit, this gets a lot easier if you use the Moon Rocks to top a bowl of regular flowers. (Incidentally, that’s what you should do if you’re determined to smoke Moon Rocks in a common form: mix them up with ground buds).
Medically speaking, Moon Rocks can provide quick, potent relief of pain and nausea. Since THC levels are typically twice as much as in untreated flowers, patients only have to smoke half as much to get relief, which is a big advantage.
Chronic pain patients who have to keep a steady level of cannabinoids in their system appreciate that with medicine as potent as Moon Rocks, they no longer have to smoke constantly to get relief.
Medical marijuana patients also vouch for the effectiveness of the Moon Rock drug when ground up and cooked into edibles. All those cannabinoids provide a lot of relief, whether they’re smoked or eaten.
Anyone or all three of the Moon Rocks components — buds, kief, and oil— can use a high CBD strain to target certain medical conditions.
Moon rock weed price:
Purple moonrocks strain typically go for at least $25 and up to $40 a gram in dispensaries. That sounds crazy expensive for a gram of weed until you remember the hash oil and kief. Those special ingredients can increase the THC level to more than 50 percent. Typical flowers run between 20 and 25 percent.
If you’re thinking, “Wait, I could buy top-shelf hash oil for $40 a gram,” you’re right. But first of all, with hash oil, you won’t get the terpene tornado you get with every hit of Moon Rocks. And secondly, don’t forget that making Moon Rocks involves some additional labor once the weed is ready to smoke, the kief is collected, and the hash oil has been extracted.
