Moonrocks are the latest in outlandish cannabis novelty products — but unlike many others, these resin-heavy treats pack a serious punch. Created by rappers Kurupt and Dr. Zodiak, Moonrocks are sizable cannabis buds that have been soaked in concentrated hash oil and then rolled in kief. And although can be made from buds of virtually any strain, sativa favorite Sour Diesel contains enough psychoactive potency and acrid flavor to shine through the thick layers of concentrate and kief involved in this preparation.
Although shaped roughly like raw cannabis flowers, Sour Moonrocks may be almost unrecognizable to frequent smokers. The nuggets are bright green thanks to their thorough coating of resin. Sour are also heavier than even the densest, most solid indica buds, due to their coagulated combination of plant matter, oil, and kief. Unfortunately for connoisseurs of aromatic profiles, very little of Sour D’s signature pungency comes through on initial inspection.
Rather than breaking these well-crafted rocks up with a grinder, consumers should carefully break off small pieces at a time — preferably with a pair of slim, sturdy tweezers, so as to rub off as little precious kief as possible. Similarly, consumers should enjoy pieces of moonrock in a piece with a deep and sturdy bowl; a hash pipe would work particularly well. Sour Moonrocks burns slowly, thanks to its wealth of combustible material. Its flavor is a meld of Sour Diesel’s skunky, chemical taste and some distinctly rich, incense-like notes courtesy of the concentrated hash oil.
The high from this delicacy is strong and multi-dimensional. Those lucky enough to have tried it report a strong cerebral edge, thanks to Sour Diesel’s predominantly sativa genetics. The addition of hash oil and kief, however, lend a palpable body high as well, liable to keep smokers pinned in place while still mentally engaged. Sour Moonrocks is of use to both recreational and medical users, thanks to its combination of mental and physical effects. It can be a mind-expanding and psychedelic experience, as well as a numbing and therapeutic high.
Truly the ‘turducken’ of cannabis products, Sour Moonrocks offers both visual interest and dynamic effects. Although it is currently only available for sale in select California facilities, the intrepid smoker can create a DIY version of Sour Moonrocks armed with some bud of Sour Diesel and this handy guide.
