Review: Kurupt’s Moon Rocks – a bud out of this world
What in the universe is a Moon Rock? In the cannabis world, a Moon Rock is a celestial bud of Girl Scout Cookies, drenched in CO2 oil, and then coated in a heavy layer of “sicdust” (or kief). This cosmic blend boasts a THC percentage of roughly 52 percent and is a heavy hitting indica with powerful sativa undertones.
Cookies, kief, and C02 oil. Serious cannabis enthusiasts get excited by that combination — how could you not?! When I first heard of Moon Rocks, I immediately knew I’d have to have them. I’ve since tried them on two separate occasions. The first time was in small amounts in fear of the high THC ratio. The second time was in larger amounts, in an attempt to really gauge the effects. Both experiences were vastly different.
Small Amounts: In “small” amounts, meaning tiny pinches off the bud, the high begins with an initial strong head rush that slowly fades into a haze. The haze lasts about an hour and a half until a slight buzz takes its place and slowly lowers your high over the period of about four hours.
Larger Amounts: In “larger” amounts, meaning about 0.1 to 0.2 of a gram, I found myself in a catatonic state until I fell into a deep sleep.
You should definitely take it slow with Moon Rocks.
I prefer a more sativa-like high and therefore preferred my first experience with Moon Rocks to my second one. However, if you’re looking for a strong body high to relieve insomnia, lack of appetite and pain, Moon Rocks is a great option.
When I tell people about Moon Rocks, the first question after “What are they?” is always “How do you consume them?”
While I’m sure there are more ways to consume a Moon Rock, the two I tried were smoking it using a bong or pipe and vaporizing it using a Volcano. In both methods, I placed a piece of Moon Rock either on top of or in the middle of a bowl’s worth of ground bud. My favorite strains that went well with the Moon Rock were Grapefruit and Candyland.
Although my two experiences with Moon Rocks were extremely different, both highs were great for different things. Small amounts may be great for a midday uplift. But be careful of consuming a little too much as it may take you on a quick trip to dreamland (after a pit stop to raid the kitchen).
Potency: 52% THC
Appearance: From the outside, the bud is a dark purple and looks similar to hash. However once you break the bud open, you can see bright green leaves under a heavy layer of deep purple.
Flavor: The flavor is sweet and earthy. However, that can be distorted to a diesel-like flavor if you use a butane lighter. I would recommend using a hemp wick for pure flavor.
Aroma: The aroma of the Moon Rock is lacking, surprisingly. When I opened the package, I wasn’t overwhelmed by a pungent wave like I would be with a bag of cannabis.
Effect: In larger amounts, the effects are extreme sleepiness and hunger. However in smaller amounts you can expect a long lasting uplifting buzz.
Medical Applicability: Stress, depression, pain, insomnia, and lack of appetite.
Overall Impression: While I may have been underwhelmed by my second experience with Moon Rocks, I can’t deny that the high is out of this world.
