What are Sun Rocks?

Most people will have heard of Moon Rocks; those buds of cannabis dripped in hash oil and then coated in kief are famous for being highly potent. Take a hefty bong rip with these distillate-soaked nugs, and you'll fly high as the stratosphere. 

A new kind of potent bud is becoming popular: sun rocks.

Before diving into sun rocks, let's look at how moon rocks are made and what you can expect when they try them out.

Moon rocks start out like any flower bud: they are planted indoors or outdoors, and then the buds are harvested, trimmed, and cured. The dried nugs are then coated with hash oil or distillate to saturate the buds and, after, rolled in kief. The result is a sticky flower with an opaque coat that tests around 50-60% THC

The quality of moon rocks varies greatly. Its thick coating makes it almost impossible to judge the quality of the flowers used. Many stories exist about people being scammed and opening up moon rocks to find dried brown buds inside.


What are sun rocks?

Sun rocks are very similar to Moon Rock - take some quality flowers, and potent high-THC extracts - and take them up a notch. 

Moon rocks can contain flower buds, hash oil, and kief from any strain and quality, making it difficult to predict the taste and effect of terpenes.

With Sun Rocks, all the ingredients are top shelf. The buds, pure, delicious extract, and rich kief - all come from the same strain. 

This is like a triple whammy regarding flavor and entourage effect.

One popular choice is the myrcene-rich OG Kush strain of sun rocks you'll find.

Because of the thick, opaque oil used in moon rocks, it's only possible to tell if the buds are good quality once you buy one and break it open yourself. 

Sun Rocks replace low-quality hash oil (usually produced by extraction with trim and shake) with a top concentrate extracted from nugs of the same strain.

The resulting extract is rich in trichomes and contains more flavor than typical hash oil with each hit. In addition, the purity of the oil makes the extract more transparent, allowing consumers to see the buds even when dusting the kief. 

These upgraded elements are not just for taste; They also help improve the Sun Rocks' potency. Moon Rocks usually reach 60% THC at their most effective, but Sun Rocks can test over 80% THC.


How to smoke sun rocks


Most consumers recommend using glass to smoke sun rocks and moon rocks. Whether it's a pipe or bong, trying to break them down and add them to joints or blunts can be messy due to their stickiness, so using a knife or scissors to cut them up is more manageable.

Layer in the bowl

When adding the cutup rocks to the bowl, do not add pile them all on top or jam them in. Instead, try mixing or layering them with other herbs so that the bowl burns evenly.

Use hemp wick

When smoking a bowl of smoke with sun rocks, try to make break them down as small as possible to make it easier to burn, and you're not trying to ignite larger nugs. And, to get the most out of these flavor elements, choose hemp wicks over regular butane lighters to avoid burning the product and allow its full flavor to come out.
