It is relatively easy to create one, and it is a method of experimentation best enjoyed by cannabis connoisseurs with a high tolerance to weed. You’ll need it because best estimates suggest that they contain around 51% THC! That’s more than double the potency of many powerful marijuana strains.
Lovers of rap will probably know that he signed to the infamous Death Row Records label back in the 1990s, and his partner Dr. Zodiak tagged along. Today, you’ll find that all the original moon rock products from that era are now known as Dr. Zodiak’s Moonrock.
Sadly, there are plenty of shady individuals selling pretty bad versions.

Each rock will have a different effect based on the strains used, along with cannabinoid and terpene concentrations.

Tips for how to smoke Moon Rocks
Moon Rocks are recommended for advanced cannabis consumers as they pack a powerful punch. Here’s some advice on how to prepare for your Moon Rocks experience.
Use glassware : Whether it’s a bong or pipe, use some glassware for Moon Rocks because it’s not your typical flower. It’s thick and greasy and will have to be ripped apart piece by piece like you’re trying to split a Nerd’s Rope with someone.
Throw it on top of some flower : The greasy texture of Moon Rocks makes them a little hard to light or keep a cherry, but if you throw them on top of some flower, you’ll be good to go. You’ll also be doubly high, but honestly, at this point, you can’t even be concerned about what level of highness you’ll end up at.
If you break up some Moon Rocks and sprinkle them on top of ground bud, you can roll up a blunt/joint and make it work for you.
Finish all of your daily tasks before smoking : We all like to get high and go do things, but Moon Rocks aren’t a Blue Dream-type feel where you’re going to be high and ready for action, Jackson. If you have a workout to do or some tasks to finish for the day, do so before smoking or else you’ll pass right out, then wake up stressed about all the time you wasted.

Don’t forget to stay hydrated : You’re going to be so damn dehydrated that you’ll look like Spongebob when Sandy had him in the air dome for the first time ever. The cottonmouth is real. Go ahead and grab a gallon of water and sit it directly next to you while smoking Moon Rocks, because once that high hits, you will not want to move a single muscle to get up and grab of glass of high-quality H2O.
Choose the right environment : If you’re going to hit some Moon Rocks, do so in a comfortable and vibe-encouraging environment where everything around you gives your soul life. You’re going to be on stuck mode and all you’ll want to do is sit and chill within yourself, so go ahead and get your couch game right.
Start low, go slow : As with edibles, start out with a little bit and gradually increase—take a small hit and space out your hits. Trust me, you’ll get to Mars quick enough.
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. THC is the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and mainly responsible for producing the “high.” Given that moon rocks contain considerably higher levels of THC, the effects are more pronounced than what you experience from run-of-the-mill cannabis products. The severity of the effects depend on a few things, including the strain used and your tolerance. Someone who’s not used to high THC cannabis tends to have more intense effects. Using large amounts also increases the intensity of the effects.

- dry mouth
- impaired memory
- dry, red eyes
- cough or other respiratory issues
- extreme hunger, aka the munchies
