We figured it was time to take a quick trip to the moon and see what all the hype is about. So Jonny Fry and I each picked up an Okanagan Moon Rock by Moon Rock, and got ready for launch.
In weed-cabulary, moon rocks are nuggets of cannabis flower, soaked in a cannabis extract, then rolled in kief. As you can imagine, the end product is high in THC with a buzz that is more comparable to dabs.
Okanagan Moon Rock by Moon Rock “are hand-trimmed AAA quality indica buds, rolled in full-spectrum oil and then rolled again in high-quality kief for an enhanced smoking experience. Produced in Canada’s famous Okanagan region under LED lights.” The 1.5 gram nug comes in a re-sealable glass jar on top of parchment paper. Enough talk, I’m ready for liftoff.
CM: I am going to be honest, I’m a moon rock virgin. I wasn’t sure how to smoke it at first, so I experimented by smoking it 3 different ways; in a joint, a pipe and a concentrate pen.
Firstly, I packed the tip of the joint with my moon rock and lit that baby up. Full disclosure, I was a little high when I rolled this and may have used a larger piece than necessary. None the less, It added a sweet hash flavour to the joint and burned slowly.
In the pipe, I lost the flavours from the moon rock because of the butane in the Bic lighter. Next time, I’ll use a hemp wick, as I’m sure it will taste better.
Lastly, using my Boundless Terp Pen, I was finally able to really enjoy the moon rock. The concentrate used for the Okanagan Moon Rock, looks, smells and tastes like hash oil (can someone please tell me why hash oil isn’t available in the legal market yet?!). It was sweet and smooth and I really enjoyed the way it smoked. I was able to get approximately 10-12 full draws from a very small piece.
JF: Although, not a moon rock virgin, I have not smoked one of these badboys since I purchased one at Marc Emery’s old shop on Church in Toronto about 5 years ago, so I’m glad to hear I wasn’t the only one who struggled to smoke this. I ended up going to pipe route and had the same issue as Cannman. Too much butane! Hemp wicks FTW. The flavour I did get was of distillate with faint hashy flavours which I did not find unpleasant but was not overly impressed with. I found the smoke to be fairly smooth, as noted by the Cannman but I did have had a lingering tickle in my throat that I find comes along with distillate.
CM: In the joint, I forgot how much moon rock I put in the tip, and smoked the first quarter of the joint before passing to a friend. Needless to say, I was couch-locked for about 30 minutes with my heart-rate around 120 bpm. Luckily, it didn’t last long. The highs from both the pipe and concentrate pen were similar, as expected. I would compare it to a really calming indica + hash high. I melted into my bed that night, though it took awhile for my brain to shut down the same way my body did.
JF: Ahhhh, the elusive couch lock. I was pumped to find I strapped on the ol’ cement shoes and glad you were able to as well, Cannman. As an Indica lover, to say I was over the moon (amirite folks!) is an understatement.
CM: Haha, good one, Jonny! Overall, I really enjoyed the high and it lived up to it’s name by sending me on a rocket ship to outer space. These are definitely worth trying, especially if you can find it for $30 or less. Take that trip!
JF: For the most part, I agree, Cannman. Despite being a bit of a mess to smoke and not exactly the best tasting cannabis product out there, this product is sure to blast you into orbit.
