Caviar vs. Moon Rocks - What's the Difference?
Moon rocks and cannabis caviar are relative newcomers on the marijuana market, and if you haven't tried them yet, you're missing out on an extremely powerful high. Both moon rocks and caviar are high THC marijuana products that exceed the buzz brought on by ordinary marijuana exponentially. Moon rocks have become quite popular in Los Angeles and other California cities, while tokers in Denver have been busy talking up the virtues of caviar. You can buy moon rocks or caviar in Colorado as well as in California, but you need to know exactly what you're getting for your money before you shop. So what are moon rocks and cannabis caviar, and what's the difference between them? This article will tell you all you need to know about the differences and similarities between moon rocks and caviar, and also where to buy them.
What are moon rocks?
Moon rocks are choice marijuana buds that have been dipped in hash oil and then rolled in a layer of kief. Typically, only high quality top shelf marijuana is used to make moon rocks, as the whole goal is a highly potent product. Often, the bud will be coated in hash oil and kief produced from the same strain as the bud that's being utilized. Since moon rocks has the THC content of not just the bud, but also the hash oil and the kief, it can contain as much as 50%-91% or more THC.
What is caviar marijuana?
Caviar marijuana or cannabis caviar as it's sometimes called is often the same exact product as moon rocks. It's buds that have been soaked in hash oil, and usually (but not always!) coated in kief. Sometimes caviar marijuana refers to marijuana that has been saturated in hash oil, but that does not have the added layer of kief on the outside. Moon rocks always has both the hash oil layer and the kief coating, whereas caviar always has the hash oil, but may or may not have the kief layer. To put it another way, moon rocks is always caviar, but caviar is not always moon rocks.
How do you smoke moon rocks or caviar?
Both moon rocks and caviar are pricey as well as delicate, so you'll want to take care how you're blazing it. If you have some caviar devoid of the kief outer layer, it might be a bit sticky or stiff to the touch. If you have moon rocks, there's a powdery layer of kief to contend with. You don't want to waste any of that good THC, so place your moon rocks or caviar on a smooth, hard surface and simply cut off little bits to smoke using a pocket knife or metal nail file. Don't pack the bowl too full or it will be hard to light, and tilt the bowl part of the pipe downward slightly as you hit it so that the liquefied hash oil will stay on the bud in the bowl rather than running down into the mouthpiece potentially clogging your pipe. Other than that, just smoke it as you normally would, just like a bowl topped with concentrates. You might want to go slow your first time smoking moon rocks or caviar; they have a reputation for knocking out even the most experienced stoners.
