Sun Rock Weed / What Are Sun Rocks?
Sun rock weed is pretty new to the marijuana industry, slowly popping up over the last couple of years, although you may have heard of their predecessor, moon rocks. Simply put, sun rocks are basically new and improved moon rocks, with purer, strain-specific ingredients. To break it down, they are high-quality buds that have been soaked in BHO extract before being rolled in kief. The combination of quality bud and concentrated marijuana products makes for weed that packs a punch! Depending on your source and the ingredients used, sun rocks can vary in potency from 50% to 80% THC.
Sun Rock weed holds an abundance of medicinal benefits that can be used to treat symptoms such as insomnia, appetite loss, cramps, stress, depression, epileptic seizures, muscle spasms, and other physical pain-related illnesses.
Our Sun Rocks are best enjoyed through a bong or a pipe – pack some freshly ground herb in the base, tear apart the Sun Rock with your fingers or scissors (never grind), and then add another layer of flower to produce a more evenly burning bowl.
What Are Sun Rocks?
You can think of a sun rock as a moon rock’s more sophisticated and mature older brother. Sun rocks are made with the same layers as moon rocks, but there are a few distinct differences that bring the potency of these nugs to a shocking 80% THC in some cases!
Layer 1: Top-Shelf OG Cannabis Flower
One major difference between moon rocks and sun rocks? Weed strain that’s used. Sun rocks are associated with the OG cannabis flower, a family of strains that offer distinct flavor, aroma, and sedative effects. And sun rocks aren’t made with just any OG strain. Typically, sun rocks are made using only top-shelf cannabis carrying a higher price tag and potency.
The most popular sun rocks strain is OG Kush, but any OG variety will do the trick. Remember, this is different than moon rocks, which are not associated with any specific or group of strains.
Layer 2: Solventless Cannabis Oil
Not all cannabis oils are created equal. Some manufacturers take shortcuts or aren’t willing to invest large sums of money for clean extraction machinery. When a concentrate is extracted using solvents, some of that solvent residue can remain and they’re then inhaled into your lungs — not good! Because sun rocks are the top-shelf option, only clean, solventless cannabis oil is used.
Layer 3: Organic Kief From Top Shelf Flower
You can’t skimp out on the last layer! Sun rocks wouldn’t be the higher potency, better quality alternative to moon rocks if they were made with just any cannabis kief. These cannabis sun rocks require kief from top-shelf, organically farmed cannabis flower.
To recap, the major difference between sun rocks vs moon rocks is quality and potency. Moon rocks are made using whatever products you’d like, of any quality. They have a thicker layer of kief than sun rocks do. When it comes to sun rocks, strain is important. Every layer is traditionally made with all OG strains (OG Kush being the most popular), from the bud at the core, to clean cannabis oil, and organically farmed top shelf kief.
