What are Moon Rocks?

Moon rocks are a THC megazord: cannabis buds dipped in hash oil, then rolled in kief. Historically GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) is used, but any strain will suffice.

The origin of moon rocks (the weed kind) is a bit fuzzy. Still, rumors abound that the dispensary Starbudz760 first concocted them, with legendary West Coast rapper Kurupt popularizing the product and trademarking his own version, Kurupt Moonrock.

How potent is Moon Rocks?

Though the potency of each batch of moon rocks varies and depends on how it’s made and who produces it, the general consensus is that they hover around 50% THC. For reference, most flower averages around 20% THC. Each hit is damn near its own experience.

And the high? Oh buddy, oh pal, don’t even get me started on the high. Starting in the head and eventually spreading throughout the entire body, down to your toes, a moon rock high is a slow burn that will make you realize you’ve reached a mountaintop that you may not be ready to climb.

Pros and cons of smoking Moon Rocks

  • Cost-effective—just like dabs, a little bit goes a long way
  • Great for medical patients or other folks who want a high dose of THC
  • They’re a fun novelty and good conversation-starter


  • They will get you super duper high (not always a good thing for everyone)
  • They’re messy—most people smoke them in glass; you can roll them in a joint or blunt, but don’t put them in a grinder
  • Keep them in a cool, dry place; you don’t want them getting all melty on you

Q: Can Moon Rocks be used in edibles or tinctures?

A: While it’s technically possible to use Moon Rocks in edibles or tinctures, it’s not commonly done due to their high potency and difficulty in determining dosage. It’s generally recommended to smoke or vaporize Moon Rocks.

Q: Are Moon Rocks legal everywhere?

A: The legality of Moon Rocks depends on the cannabis laws in your specific location. In places where cannabis is legal for recreational use, Moon Rocks are typically also legal. However, in areas where cannabis is only legal for medicinal use or illegal altogether, Moon Rocks will follow the same laws.

Q: Can I use CBD oil instead of hash oil to make Moon Rocks?

A: You can use CBD oil instead of hash oil to make a less psychoactive version of Moon Rocks. The process would be the same, but the resulting product would have a higher CBD and lower THC content.

Q: How should I store my Moon Rocks?

A: Moon Rocks should be stored in a cool, dry place to maintain their potency and prevent them from melting. A glass jar in a cupboard or drawer is a good option.

Q: Can Moon Rocks help with my medical condition?

A: Moon Rocks are very high in THC, which can benefit conditions that respond well to THC, such as chronic pain, insomnia, and loss of appetite. However, due to their high potency, they should be used cautiously, especially by those new to cannabis.

Q: Are there different strains of Moon Rocks?

A: While the original Moon Rocks are typically made with Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) strain, and GSC concentrate, you can technically make Moon Rocks with any strain of cannabis. The strain will affect the flavor and specific effects of the Moon Rocks.

Q: Can I make Moon Rocks with concentrates other than hash oil?

A: While hash oil is commonly used due to its sticky consistency and high THC content, other cannabis concentrates like wax or shatter could also be used to make Moon Rocks. The key is to use a concentrate that will allow the kief to stick to the bud.
