How are high potency Giraffe Nuts moonrocks made? The process begins with an organically grown delta-8 flower that is hand-trimmed at peak maturity. The buds are then soaked in a distillate with of delta-8 THC terpenes, which infuse into the plant while coating the leaves with a sticky outer layer. The distillate-coated delta-8 nugs are then rolled in a powdery kief of CBG and CBD flower to create the rocky looking top coat and add a third source of cannabinoids to the product.
Moon Rocks are best smoked through glass pipes with medium or large shafts.
The distillate that binds the kief to the flower can cause problems when rolled into a joint or blunt and keep it from staying lit. Many enthusiasts insist that bongs are the best way to consume Moon Rocks.
The first step in smoking Moon Rocks is to break up a single nug into small chunks. It’s best to do this with a knife or your hands instead of using a grinder. Because Moon Rocks are dusted with a powdery kief, crushing the bud up in a grinder produces a big mess, and its sap-like stickiness makes it hard to work with.
Once you’ve cut or broken up a Moon Rock nug, take a small portion place it loosely in the bowl of a glass pipe or bong. (Note: If you plan on combining Moon Rocks with a CBG or CBD flower, be sure to add it in first — and again, pack it loosely — before placing a Moon Rock chunk on top of it.)
Light the Moon Rocks with slowly with a soft flame (not a torch) and inhale slowly. If you’re using a regular pipe, angle it slightly away from yourself as you inhale to prevent clogging.
The Moon Rock nug may begin to bubble and melt during smoking. This is normal. Just be sure not to touch it after it’s been lit because it will stick to you and make for an unpleasant sensation.
The sticky distillate often produces big clouds, so be prepared for a big exhale.
Once you’ve inhaled enough, let a slow exhale. And be prepared to cough. The first hit can be a surprise to users who have never tried a Moon Rocks product before.
Most importantly: Be careful! Delta-8 THC produces a milder, gentler high than delta-9, but the psychoactive effects can still overpower users to take too much. Because Moon Rocks has such a high concentration of delta-8 THC, it’s best to start with a very small amount and wait 20-30 minutes before trying more.
