Cannabis moon rocks are basically the “champagne” of the pot world. Some people even call them the Caviar of cannabis.
They’re made up of different pot products that are all rolled into one very potent nug and smoked.
They became a thing when West Coast rapper Kurupt brought it to people’s attention and eventually trademarked his own brand of moon rocks.
As for the name, they do look like moon rocks. But their ability to send even the most seasoned cannabis consumer flying extra high might have something to do with it, too.
How are they made?
Moon rocks are made by taking a nugget of cannabis and dipping it in concentrate, or hash oil.
They’re usually made with topshelf flower and concentrate, but can be made with any strain.
The coated nugget is then rolled in kief. Kief, also called pollen or dry sift, is the sticky crystals that cover the cannabis flower. This crystal residue contains terpenes and cannabinoids.
How strong are they?
It varies from batch to batch. The potency depends on how it’s made, who’s making it, and the ingredients used.
Florida Cannabis Supply Moon rocks typically hover around 60 percent Total active cannabinoids. To help put that into perspective, popular strains found in other dispensaries typically range from 17 to 28 percent total active cannabinoids.
How are they consumed?
You can smoke moon rocks like you would any other nug, by breaking it up into a joint, bowl, vape, or pipe. Keeping it lit isn’t easy, and it’s also super dense and greasy, so glassware like a bong or pipe is the preferred way. Most people like to buy cheaper whole ounces of flower along with their moonrocks 3.5 gram jars and grind the moonrocks up with their flower and make a larger mix of flower that is still very potent.
What are the effects?
Moon rocks are potent. People who’ve indulged describe big, full, fragrant smoke clouds and a rich and pleasant taste of kief.

Are there any risks?
These potent nuggets are sure to mess with your brain and energy levels, which can make getting things done impossible. It’s best to clear your schedule or do it when you’ve got a big chunk of free time.
Here are some general safety tips for using moon rocks:
- Eat. Eat first, not just to keep the eventual munchies in check, but to also lessen the effects of high-THC weed and prevent nausea.
- Hydrate. Have lots of water on hand and stay hydrated before, during, and after smoking, as dry mouth is pretty much a given.
- Consider your surroundings. Choose a safe place where you can just sit and chill without any responsibilities.
- Go slow. Start slow — like, really slow. This is especially important if you’re new to moon rocks or high-THC strains, as it can help minimize the intensity of the effects. Try to wait at least several minutes between each inhale.
