What in the Universe is a Moon Rock? In the cannabis world, a Moon Rock is a heavenly top of Girl Scout Cookies, soaked in CO2 oil and then covered in a thick layer of “sicdust” (or kief). This cosmic blend has a THC percentage of around 52 percent and is a heavy hitting indica with potent sativa undertones.
Biscuits, kief and C02 oil. Serious cannabis enthusiasts are getting excited about that combination – how could you not?! When I first heard of Moon Rocks, I immediately knew I had to have them. I’ve tried them on two separate occasions since then. The first time was in small amounts for fear of the high THC ratio. The second time was in larger amounts, trying to really measure the effects. Both experiences were vastly different.
Small amounts: In “small” amounts, meaning small pinches of the top, the high starts with an initial strong headbutt that slowly fades into a haze. The haze lasts for about an hour and a half until a light buzz takes its place and your high drops slowly over a period of about four hours.
Larger Amounts: In “larger” amounts, ie about 0.1 to 0.2 grams, I was in a catatonic state until I fell into a deep sleep.
You should definitely take it easy with Moon Rocks.
I prefer a more sativa-like high and so preferred my first experience with Moon Rocks over my second. However, if you are looking for a strong body high to relieve insomnia, loss of appetite and pain, Moon Rocks is a great option.
When I tell people about Moon Rocks, the first question after “What are they?” is always “How do you consume them?”
While I’m sure there are more ways to consume a Moon Rock, the two I tried were smoking it with a bong or pipe and vaporizing it with a Volcano. In both methods, I placed a piece of Moon Rock on or in the center of a bowl of crushed tops. My favorite varieties that went well with the Moon Rock were Grapefruit and Candyland.
While my two experiences with Moon Rocks were very different, both highlights were great for different things. Small amounts can be great for an afternoon pick-me-up. But be careful not to consume too much, as it could take you on a quick trip to dreamland (after a pit stop to raid the kitchen).
Potency: 52% THC
Appearance: From the outside, the buds are dark purple and resemble hashish. But once you break the bud open, you’ll see bright green leaves covered in a thick layer of deep purple.
Taste: The taste is sweet and earthy. However, that can be distorted into a diesel-like taste if you use a butane lighter. I would recommend using a hemp pod for pure flavor.
Flavour: The aroma of the Moon Rock is surprisingly lacking. When I opened the package, I was not overwhelmed by a sharp wave like I would be with a bag of cannabis.
Effect: In larger amounts, the effects are extreme drowsiness and hunger. In smaller amounts, however, you can expect a long-lasting uplifting buzz.
Medical Applicability: Stress, depression, pain, insomnia and lack of appetite.
General impression: While I may not have been impressed with my second experience with Moon Rocks, I can’t deny that the high is out of this world.
