Ever been so lifted that you think you are over the moon? If you have – it’s probably because you smoked a concentrate, Delta 8 Moon-Rocks or something extremely potent. Moon-Rocks are essentially nothing more than dried and cured ready to smoke marijuana cannabis or hemp cannabis dipped in oil or distillate and then finished off with a layer of kief. Many people in the medical marijuana industry refer to these moon rock nugs as known as the Caviar of the Cannabis world. The process is very much the same regardless of whether you use marijuana flower or hemp flower.
Cannabis is a wild plant, but we all know that its growing popularity and benefits convinced people to look deeper into it. This made experienced users develop more strains by crossing different strains from different origins with each other and forming a hybrid result.
Moon-Rocks have an unclear origin. Some say that they were introduced by Death Row rappers Dr. Zodiak and Kurupt, previously known as Tha Dogg Pound.
Later, it was made famous, merchandised, and sold as a personal brand of these West Coast rappers.
Cannabis and Delta 8 Moon-Rocks | How are they made?
Delta 8 Moon-Rocks are typically made by dipping a nug of Cannabis or Hemp flower in liquid cannabis concentrate. Some make it by spraying liquid cannabis concentrate or hash oil on the flower. They get their name from their appearance, it easy to see why they got their name. They’re commonly prepared using the weed strain called Girl Scout Cookies flower and concentrate, although they may be made with any hybrid strain. The nug of Cannabis flower, after being dipped or sprayed with the hash oil or concentrate, is dusted with kief. The sticky crystals that coat the cannabis flower are known as kief, pollen, or dry sift. This crystal residue contains the magical components of Cannabis called Terpenes and Cannabinoids.
You may notice a few differences between our Delta 8 Asteroids and our Delta 8 Moon Rocks – the primary and obvious difference being the color and appearance of the nugs themselves. The asteroids are infused with a 95% Delta 8 Distillate which are then layered in CBD Isolate – while the moon-rocks go through a similar process – they are topped off with CBG Hemp Flower Kief.
Terpenes are important because they give the strain the scent and flavor. Whereas, Cannabinoids decide the potency of the strain. Together they make a complete profile of a strain that reflects the flavor, potency, taste, smell, and onset of action.
The buds, once made, are recommended to be stored in a cool, dark place to dry at least for a few hours before first use.
Delta 8 Moon Rocks | Profile
The original strain used to make Moon-Rocks was said to be a phenotype of Girl Scout Cookies. Since it is a hybrid strain, it is a cross result of approximately 70% Indica and approximately 30% Sativa.
Indica strain has a high percentage of THC, which makes it a strong sedative. Indica strain induces a strong cerebral euphoric effect. The bigger contribution of a parent strain imparts the dominant traits to the child strain.
The THC level of this extremely powerful strain goes ranges between 20 to 27%. But it also varies with different manufacturers. Our Delta 8 moon-rocks come in over 40%!
Delta 8 Moon-Rocks | Appearance
The product may appear slightly chunky. These strains are covered with a thick coat of resin because the nug is sprayed with hash oil or cannabis concentrate in the final step of the making process.
The chunky bud of the rocks looks embellished with glittering trichrome that looks like pearls. A thick coat of resin that makes it look chunky also makes it hard to rip apart. The nug is thick and greasy; hence it is ripped piece by piece.
They have an earthy smell with spicy, nutty, mellow, dank notes
Moon-Rocks | How to try and test them properly?
The outer layer of the bud is covered with a thick coat of resin because the nug is sprayed with hash oil or cannabis concentrate in the final step of the making process. Fortunately – we add a TON of kief on all our moon-rocks, so you won’t have to worry about this!
This layer makes them hard to light or burn; hence it is burned on top of a flower. The nug is dense and oily, so the flower base provides support to light it without hassle.
People also use some glass jars or something similar for Moon Rocks to avoid having any issues or regrets with a smashed bag full of sticky buds .
As for the quantity of usage, a small quantity should be taken. We know that it’s a strong product; hence we can expect a powerful punch without any warnings on the label.
It causes a strong cerebral euphoria; hence first-time users may experience lethargy. This concentrated flower is preferably for advanced users. In addition to that, every user is recommended to have something in their stomach to avoid nausea from the strong punch.
The smoke clouds produced with these buds are fragrant, dense, and rich circles. Because of the rich potency of this concoction, it is recommended to take it at night-time. It helps greatly to treat insomnia and fatigue, but excessive, unsupervised, or unapproved usage can be harmful.
For many seasoned users, strong and potent strains are a source of joy as they can handle the strong euphoric effect it gives. Potent strains have calming effects, are anti-inflammatory, and treats insomnia.
They are in-expensive and easily available. Due to high potency, nugs can last long as little goes a long way.
Anecdotal customer testimony and product reviews suggest that delta 8 thc helps relieve chronic pain, insomnia, headache, migraines, etc.
As for some users, the ‘lifted’ spirits it causes is pure bliss, but for many, it can be a a little to much.
Novice users and patients are never advised to start experiencing the benefits of Hemp through strong strains. Hence a psychotropic strain that causes strong euphoria is not always a good thing.
Moon Rocks are chunky and lumpy. It can be hard to light at times. These nugs are also very sticky under the kief, so try to tend with love and carer.
It is a night-time strain, and the reaction stays for longer durations, sometimes more than 12 hours.
Moon Rock buds, once made, are required to be stored in a cool, dark place to dry at least for a few hours before first use. They can collect moisture and can go bad faster if not properly dried.
