Delta 8 Moon Rocks take their name from their cratered and craggy appearance. But don’t let that fool you. These tiny rocks deliver boulder-size effects.

Continue reading to learn more about moon rocks and how these celestial-sounding objects can help you “blast away” from the stress of modern-day living.
What are Delta 8 Moon Rocks?
Delta 8 Moon Rocks are hemp buds that have been infused with Delta-8 THC distillate before being rolled in a cannabinoid-rich kief. In other words, Moon Rocks are a way to combine two or more strains of cannabis into a single product that produces powerful effects.

Think of moon rocks as cake covered in creamy icing and decorated with fruit.
Each component is enjoyable on its own, but combined, they achieve something divine!
Derived from legal hemp, Delta 8 THC has been reported to provide a feeling of relaxation, an increased appetite, and a sense of well-being.
How are Delta 8 THC Moon Rocks made?
While the actual origins of Moon Rocks are unknown, it is evident that it began in California in the 1970s as a technique to repurpose leftover kief and boost the potency of low-quality cannabis.
Since then, the methods for creating Moon Rocks have evolved into a more intentional process that does not result in a Frankenstein’s monster of stitched-together buds. To supplement the effects of the base strain and distillate, today’s Moon Rocks contain higher quantities of terpenes and cannabinoids, including CBG and CBD.
The method for this product begins with an organic, greenhouse-grown Delta 8 that has been hand-trimmed at optimal maturity. The buds are then immersed in a Delta 8 distillate, which infuses the plant while covering the leaves with a sticky outer layer.
The distillate-coated Delta 8 nugs are then wrapped in a powdered kief of Delta 8, CBD, and other natural cannabinoids for a mellow effect.
How do you take Moon Rocks?
Moon rocks can be smoked or vaped.
Vaping Moon Rocks
Conduction heating vaporizers are the most effective for pure moon rocks. Most conduction-based cannabis vaporizers and portables will work if you mix Moon Rocks with flower—the more common method of vaping moon rocks.
Instead of the oil pad that comes with some types of vapes, you may use an organic cotton ball. Moon rocks can’t be vaporized with dab pens because they can’t vaporize plant matter, especially full dense nugs.
Smoking Moon Rocks
Moon Rocks are best smoked via glass pipes with medium or large shafts.
If rolled into a blunt or joint, the distillate that bonds the kief to the flower can cause issues and prevent it from staying lit. Some users get around this by mixing Moon Rocks with a generous amount of CBG or CBD flower, which burns more efficiently. It’s also probably a good idea to avoid using thin pipes since hot distillate can clog narrow passages.
Step 1: Break a single nug
Breaking up a single nug into little chunks is the first step in smoking Moon Rocks. Instead of using a grinder, do this with a knife or your hands. (Because Moon Rocks are coated with powdery kief, crushing the bud in a grinder can make a mess.)
Step 2: Add a little broken-up moon rock to a bowl.
After cutting or breaking up a Moon Rock nug, insert a small portion into the bowl (or slide) of a glass pipe or bong. (Note: If you intend to combine Moon Rocks with a CBG or CBD flower, apply it first—and pack it loosely—before adding a Moon Rock piece on top.)
Step 3: Slowly light Delta 8 Moon Rocks
Light the Moon Rocks carefully with a mild flame (not a torch) and inhale deeply. To avoid clogging, position your standard pipe slightly away from yourself when inhaling.
Directions for After Smoking
During smoking, the Moon Rock nug may begin to boil and dissolve. This is typical. Just don’t touch it after it’s been ignited. Otherwise, it may stick to you, which won’t be pleasant.
The sticky distillate frequently generates large clouds, so brace yourself for a lengthy exhale.
After you’ve inhaled enough, exhale slowly. Also, expect to cough. Users who have never experienced a Moon Rocks product before may be surprised by the initial hit.
What are the benefits of smoking Delta 8 Moon Rocks?
Since moon rocks are pretty potent, they are best suited for individuals looking for a quick hit of hemp. Moon Rocks might be the product for you if you are an experienced smoker interested in taking your hemp consumption to the next level.
Also, if you’re looking for an unconventional “ice breaker,” Moon Rocks are great to have at parties!
Will Delta 8 Moon Rocks get you high?
Delta 8 THC from hemp offers a milder high than Delta 9 THC from cannabis. Regardless, the psychoactive effects can still overwhelm users who take too much.
Since Moon Rocks contain a high concentration of Delta 8 THC, it’s advisable to start with a small amount and wait 20–30 minutes before taking any more.
Are Delta 8 Moon Rocks OK for beginners?
Even though taking CBD moon rocks won’t make you high, we don’t recommend them to anyone who has never tried hemp before. If you’ve never used Delta 8, we wouldn’t recommend starting with Delta 8 moon rocks.
After determining your tolerance, we recommend progressing to one of our various hemp strains, pre-rolls, or vape cartridges. Remember that smoking or vaping hemp is more powerful than consuming edibles or oils.
Once you’ve become used to smoking our premium hemp nugs, you should feel more confident moving on to our potent moon rocks.

Can you eat a moon rock?
Moon rocks can be used in edibles by breaking them down and incorporating them into different recipes. However, it is better to use the components of moon rocks – particularly the oil – separately in edibles. Moon rocks are generally intended for smoking.
Top tips for Moon Rock safety
Buy from a reputable retailer
To ensure that the distillate used in your moon rocks is safe and of excellent quality, check the lab findings to ensure that the product you intend to purchase has been checked for contaminants such as residual solvents, toxins, and pesticides.
Since you’ll be smoking moon rocks, it’s even more critical that the flower be clean and devoid of any harmful impurities.
Eat before smoking
The important word here is “before.” If a moon rock is too powerful, having something in your stomach will help avoid nausea. It may also help keep the munchies at bay.
Grab a gallon of water and place it next to you while smoking moon rocks because once the high kicks in, you won’t want to move a single muscle to get up and grab a glass of good-quality H2O. (The same applies to the snacks you intend to consume afterwards!)
Select the right environment
The setting is also crucial. So, if you’re going to hit the moon rocks, do so in a relaxed and positive environment where everything around you feeds your soul. You’ll be in stuck mode, and all you’ll want to do is sit and relax within yourself, so practice your couch game.
Start small and go slow
As with edibles, start with a lower dose and gradually increase—take a small hit and then space the rest out. Slow and steady wins the race!
