Are you a seasoned cannabis consumer that struggles to get high anymore? Is traditional flower just not doing it for you when it comes to therapeutic benefits? If you’ve ever wanted psychoactive effects that (while some might say literally) take you to space, moon rocks are for you.

So what is a cannabis moon rock and just how potent is it? How do you smoke moon rocks? Here, Elevate Holistics presents to you our handy guide on all things marijuana moon rock. 

How Do You Smoke Them?

The best way to smoke moon rocks is by using a glass piece like a pipe or bong. 

It’s possible to add tiny broken-up pieces of them to a joint or blunt filled with flower, but it probably won’t burn properly. 

Follow these steps to get the most out of your rocks.

Step 1 

Cut up the cannabis rock into small pieces using a knife, blade, scissors, or grinder. You can also tear a moon rock apart with your fingers, but it’s a little messy and you’ll lose kief. 

Step 2

Sit one small piece of rock on top of a half-full bowl of flower. Loosely place it to avoid clogging when heated.

Step 3

Using a lighter or hemp wick, burn the moon rock slowly while trying to apply low heat. Let it melt the wax and burn the flower. If it catches on fire, put out the flame by lightly blowing on it or stamping it with the bottom of a lighter.

Step 4

Inhale at a slow, even pace and prepare for an intense rip.

How To Smoke Moon Rocks By Itself

If you don’t have any flower, learning how to enjoy moon rocks by themselves is always an option. 

Following the same steps listed above without the flower, slowly and gently burn the cannabis moon rock in the bowl of a glass pipe or bong.

The key is to gradually burn and melt all compounds of the moon rock.

Other Ways to Enjoy Moon Rocks

You can enjoy them by cutting it into small pieces or grinding them down  and add it the following:

Bong Bowl ( the preferred method ) 
Vaporizer ( if you are brave )
Dab Rig
Perhaps Out of an Apple


It can get messy, so even though it’s possible to smoke it anyway, you might want to pick the cleanest option. 

 What Is Moon Rock Made Of? The Science Behind it

Is moon rock weed? 

Yes, a cannabis moon rock consists solely of marijuana and is a THC-heavy treat. 

So, what are these celestial clusters? 

Moon rocks are cannabis nugs dipped in hash oil and then covered in kief

As they are ultimately just concentrated cannabis, moon rocks can produce one of the most potent highs that marijuana offers. 

You know what weed flower is, but what exactly are hash oil and kief?

Hash oil 

a potent cannabis concentrate containing high levels of THC (up to 90%). This kind of oil contains all of marijuanas active compounds, like its cannabinoids (THC, CBD, and so on) and terpenes, while getting rid of the flower. Hash oil’s potency could provide greater therapeutic benefits, like pain and inflammation relief, than your typical flower. Hash oil extract can be heated and vaporized in the form of a dab.


the radiant crystally dust that covers cannabis plants. These dust particles are called trichomes which contain cannabinoids and other cannabis compounds. When the trichomes fall off the weed plant, they become kief. Consumers can add kief on top of bowls or joints for an upgraded high.

Prepare Your Own Moon Rock: Step by Step Guide

  1. They are made by taking a dense nugget of any strain, dipping, or spraying it with your favorite concentrate or hash oil. 
  2. Don’t dip it in since it’ll make it too wet. 
  3. Then, grab the coated nugget with tongs and roll it in the Kief. Get it covered real good. 
  4. Let them dry for 24 – 48 hours in a glass jar. 
  5. Just cover the jar with something to allow some airflow, but prevents dust getting onto your fresh batch while it drys. 
  6. Once they’re dry, you’re ready take-off. 

 Additional: How long does it take to dry? 

Let them dry for about 24-48 hours. If they are still not dry, allow 3 – 5 days just to be sure. 

 Common FAQs about Moon Rocks

The potency of a moon rock varies depending on what cannabis strains were used to make it. A marijuana moon rock typically contains more than 50% – 90% THC, compared to traditional flower’s about 20% THC.

What does moon rock look like? 

A cannabis moon rock resembles a mossy rock straight from the Jurassic ages. Imagine a weed nug that’s been absolutely smothered in kief – which is exactly what it is. 

Upon opening up a moon rock, you’ll see a dazzling cannabis bud surrounded by sticky hash oil.

What are the side effects? 

The side effects can vary depending on the strain and your tolerance. If you’re not used to the THC high, then you’ll have a more intense experience. Using large amount may also increase the intensity of the following side effects: 

  • dizziness
  • increased heart rate
  • anxiety
  • paranoia
  • sleepiness
  • headaches
  • dry mouth
  • impaired memory
  • dry, red eyes
  • cough
  • extreme hunger, aka the munchies

How long does it take to feel the high?

In our experience, it can take about 20 – 30 minutes.   

How long do moon rocks get you high for? 

It can last for several hours and even till the next day. If your tolerance is low, don’t plan on doing anything after you smoke. You probably won’t be able to feel your toes or your face. So sit back and enjoy the cosmos. 

Who Should Consider Moon Rocks?

So who would best benefit from this potent option? Are moon rocks right for you?

If regular weed just isn’t doing the trick for you, learning how to smoke moon rocks should be considered. 

Marijuana moon rocks are for you if:

  • You need a stronger cannabis option to treat your physical, mental, or spiritual needs
  • You’re suffering from intense pain that requires intense treatment
  • You are a seasoned cannabis consumer who wants to try something new

If it is your first time-consuming weed or you experience anxiety caused by high levels of THC, it is best to avoid moon rocks. 

If you do experience unwanted effects, remember that you will be okay – just breathe and sleep it off. 

Where To Buy Moon Rocks?

Many dispensaries, but not all, sell marijuana moon rocks. Search online dispensary menus near you to find out if your local dispensaries sell these tasty, potent buds.

More expensive than a gram of traditional flower, moon rocks are still an affordable option given the high they provide and all of the products they contain.

You can find moon rocks for about $30 to $40 per gram.

You can also make your own moon rocks by coating a nug of your favorite flower in hash oil and then dunking it in kief.

Making a cannabis moon rock can be super fun and allows you to customize it to your liking using your favorite strains. 

The only downsides of making your own moon rocks are that it’s more expensive than buying them premade, and steps like gently heating the hash oil for coating (if your concentrate is more of a solid) can be a little tricky.

Pros and Cons of Smoking Moon Rocks


  • They will get you high, like, really really high
  • They’re fast acting so you’ll basically get stoned right away
  • An affordable option for the high that you get
  • Great for medical patients if they have severe  medical conditions


Super Messy

Because moon rocks are sticky. Preparing moon rocks can be a little tedious if it’s your first time. 

Must Be Kept Cool

The oil and kief will melt if exposed to high temperatures. Store it in a cool dry place that isn’t in contact with the sun. 

Super Strong: Recommended For Seasoned Smokers

You’ll get way too high if you aren’t used to it. If you are inexperienced, it could ruin the fun if you aren’t prepared. It’s meant for more micro-dosing unless you want to hold onto the floor and brace for take-off. 

Health and Safety Tips and Tricks: Consume Responsibly 

Start Slow

Most importantly, proceed with caution when treating yourself to this otherworldly experience. Make your high as enjoyable as possible by following these tips.

Take a small hit of moon rock and wait a minute before taking another. See how you react first, as a little goes a long way.

Keep your environment safe 

Be sure that you are in a safe space with everything you could need before partaking in this potency. A cannabis moon rock could produce a couch-lock, belly-laughing type of high, so check all the boxes on your to-do list before blasting off.

Stay Hydrated

It’s always a good idea to have plenty of water in your system and more water readily available before consuming moon rocks. Cottonmouth is likely.

Eat Something First

Prepare your high with snacks. Just like it’s good to have water in your system already, it’s also important to have some food in your belly. This will help buffer any possible unwanted side effects. Keep extra snacks prepared and ready to be munched on.
