Kurupt Moonrocks are basically the “champagne” of the pot world. Some people even call them cannabis caviar.
They’re made up of different pot products that are all rolled into one very potent nug and smoked.
They became a thing when West Coast rapper Kurupt brought it to people’s attention and eventually trademarked his own brand of moon rocks.
As for the name, they do look like moon rocks. But their ability to send even the most seasoned cannabis consumer flying extra high might have something to do with it, too.
Moon rocks are made by taking a nugget of marijuana and dipping it in or spraying it with concentrate, or hash oil.
They’re usually made with Girl Scout Cookies (the weed strain, not Thin Mints) flower and concentrate, but can be made with any strain.
The coated nugget is then rolled in kief. Kief, also called pollen or dry sift, is the sticky crystals that cover the cannabis flower. This crystal residue contains terpenes and cannabinoids.
It varies from batch to batch. The potency depends on how it’s made, who’s making it, and the ingredients used.
Moon rocks — nugs that have been covered in a sticky concentrate then rolled in kief — exist somewhat outside the current zeitgeist of weed culture. In a world where mindfulness and wellness trump the heady highs and bloodshot eyes of the pre-legalization era, moonrocks triumph as a relic of yesteryear, reminding you it can still be fun to be too high to do anything but belly laugh and lay around.

What Are Kurupt Moonrocks?
Moon rocks are nugs of flower that have been dipped or covered in an extract like hash oil or shatter, then rolled in kief, a powder made of the trichomes, terpenes, and cannabinoids that have fallen from flower.
Why smoke moon rocks?
Moon rocks are often used as a type of “stoner hack.” Typically clocking in at least 50% THC and costing upwards of $30 a gram, these coated nugs are all about bang for your buck. If you need to get extremely high, but don’t want to shell out the potentially. Hundreds of dollars it would take to buy the flower, concentrate, and kief separately. To the moon you go.
If cannabis consumption were a three-course meal, a microdose would be an appetizer, a fire pre-roll would be an entree, and moon rocks would be a McDonald’s hot fudge sundae you pick up on the way home from the restaurant: not necessarily the most gourmet product, but it gets the job done, and well.
Outside of wanting to get out-of-this-world high, moon rocks have a stellar application in the medicinal world, too. Since legality put a milligram cap on many cannabis products. For example, the 10 milligrams per serving cap imposed on edibles, patients. Requiring high doses of THC to cope with their ailments turn to moon rocks for relief
