The product soon became popular thanks to the version presented by Kurupt and Dr. Zodiak and the television advertising campaigns. Kurupt’s Moon Rocks were born, an item that soon would be on the entire cannabis community’s lips. Eventually, other producers have joined this adventure and are offering an improved version with a raw material of better quality called Sun Rocks, which can contain up to 80% of THC.
From then on, more and more dispensaries are offering this product, greatly expanding the number of cannabis strains available in this format. As is always the case, the quality of these products depends on the quality of the plants involved in their preparation, as well as on finding the right formula in terms of strain mixture, so the experience is great. In fact, you can combine flowers from a particular strain with BHO from another and kief from a third, expanding the range of possibilities with regards to the taste and effects obtained.
How to make Moon Rocks and Sun Rocks
Before we go any further, we should make an important distinction, because when Kurupt’s Moon Rocks were launched there was already a concentrate called Moonrock or Crumble, which was a variant of BHO obtained by slightly modifying the purging parameters.
The texture of this concentrate is similar to cookies, with small holes or craters that, admittedly, resemble a piece of lunar soil. However, in this case, the resin has been extracted with butane gas (BHO), while the one before us today is a mixture of bud, BHO, and kief, achieved by dry sifting. Traditionally, the buds used were Girl Scout Cookies or OG Kush, although we obviously can use any strain with compact buds.
It must be said that when the first Kurupt’s Moon Rocks were created, nobody knew about Rosin Hash, so they are typically made using BHO. However, they can also be made by replacing BHO with Rosin, and even with some CO2 extractions; the only thing we must seek when preparing the chosen concentrate is a texture as liquid as possible, which would greatly facilitate the process of infusing the bud with oil.
