Moon rocks, also known as caviar, are a newer and stronger product in the cannabis industry. The title moon rocks have been thrown around the industry for quite a while, but not many people actually know what moon rocks are.

In fact, a lot of consumers think of moon rocks as bubble hash. It is one of the closest products to bubble hash in dispensaries, yet moon rocks are far more potent than most bubble hash. Moon rocks were created due to the high demand for more potent cannabis products.

What Exactly are Moon Rocks?

Moon Rocks are the combination of three main product types within the cannabis industry:

The process of making moon rocks consists of taking a fresh bud, rolling it in cannabis oil, and then sprinkling kief onto the top. Kief is the excess trichomes that fall off the plant during the grinding, shaking, or trimming process. Kief tends to be very potent and has a lot of flavors.

The product, once covered in oil and kief, is what we consider to be moon rocks.

Moon rocks are considered to be the most potent flower on the market. It is the only product that contains multiple cannabis forms each testing at different potencies. The average testing of fresh cannabis flower is between 15% – 30% THC. Cannabis oil is usually testing around 60%-90% THC. Kief is usually around the same potency of flower but, contains a more concentrated amount of THC.

The combination of these products is what gives moon rocks their high potency. Most caviar that consumers see on the market is testing around 40% – 60% THC which would make it one of the highest testing flower products in the industry.

When the industry first came about, moon rocks were a bit unknown and unregulated. Some cannabis dispensaries in California and elsewhere had caviar bars and allowed their customers to pick the flower, oil, and kief that they wanted.

 

Due to regulations, however, most dispensaries are no longer allowed to do this. However, these regulations have caused third-party vendors to dive into the production of moon rocks.

The most popular moon rock vendor in the Colorado cannabis industry is Kaviar.
