As one of the most expensive foods in the world, caviar fetches an impressive price from retail customers. With many different varieties available, these fish eggs are expertly produced and harvested. Those who enjoy it often save caviar for special occasions, treating guests to the unparalleled taste and texture it provides.

The world of weed also boasts its own form of caviar—highly potent preparations that blend the best-quality cannabis flowers in the world with top-tier concentrates. If you want to try the tastiest and strongest weed products on Earth, you need to go shopping for caviar cannabis.

What Is Caviar Cannabis?

Caviar cannabis serves as an umbrella term that encompasses several types of expensive and expertly crafted cannabis products. MoonRocks and SunRocks are two of the most popular within this category. These preparations offer tastes like you’ve never experienced, and a high that will catapult the minds of even experienced smokers into the upper atmosphere.

Technically, caviar cannabis refers to products made using flower and extracts, without a final dusting of kief. But, at this point, the term has largely come to refer to all types of premium products of this nature.


MoonRocks are something special. They are made by taking a regular cannabis flower, covering it with some kind of oil (usually BHO like wax) and coating it in a thick dusting of kief. Pack one of these in your pipe and you’ve got yourself a return ticket to the moon, literally.

  • How Potent Are MoonRocks?

MoonRocks offer a high you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. The combination of ultra-powerful cannabis buds—containing anywhere between 25–30% THC—with potent concentrates smashes CB1 receptors with enormous levels of the psychotropic cannabinoid.

To put it in perspective, hitting a MoonRock delivers a similar high to hitting a bong full of powerful buds, immediately after taking a super-strong dab.


SunRocks take things to another level. A SunRock is basically like MoonRock’s older, chain- smoking brother.

While their composition is nearly identical (a bud coated in concentrate and sprinkled with kief), SunRocks are typically made using higher-grade products. They are currently being produced by two main manufacturers in California, Big Tray Deee and Apollo Sun Rocks.

  • How Potent Are SunRocks?

If MoonRocks aren’t enough for you, SunRocks offer something even more profound. This creation provides perhaps the most powerful cannabis experience available, short of hitting pure THC crystals. With THC levels clocking in at 60–80%, SunRocks bestow an immediate high that lingers for hours. They might leave you wondering where exactly you’ve been…

How Much Do MoonRocks and SunRocks Cost?

As caviar cannabis products, MoonRocks and SunRocks occupy the premium end of the spectrum. You’ll only find these products in high-end dispensaries, most of which are located in the United States. Outside of this country, you might have some luck finding them in Dutch coffeeshops or Spanish cannabis clubs. Premium products come with a premium price. Expect to part ways with $90–100 of your hard-earned cash for an eighth (0.1 oz).

What Are the Effects of MoonRocks and SunRocks?

Moon and SunRocks produce very unique effects. Some users compare them to dabs due to their potency, but the highs are really quite different.

  • How Long Do They Take to Kick In?

Both of these caviar cannabis products hit hard, fast, and ferociously. You’ll feel the effects slam your body and mind the second you inhale a bong, pipe, joint, or vape hit. If you’re looking to get as high as possible, as fast as possible, then look no further.

  • Is There Any Risk to Using MoonRocks or SunRocks?

Yes and no. Caviar cannabis has the potential to completely overwhelm both beginner and advanced users. If you’re used to smoking low to mid-quality weed and don’t have much experience with extracts, you might have a hard time.

With that said, cannabis remains one of the safest recreational substances in the world. Overdoing it may result in distressing psychological symptoms like paranoia and anxiety, but physical symptoms are mostly limited to nausea and sleepiness, otherwise known as “greening out”.

How to Smoke MoonRocks and SunRocks

Smoking Moon or SunRocks is a little different to smoking regular flower. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on these goodies, here are some tips to enjoy them properly.

  1. Don’t grind them: A regular herb grinder will butcher these buds and likely struggle with their sticky texture. Instead, use your fingers or scissors to gently break them apart.
  2. Use a pipe, bong, or bubbler: At 60-80% THC, you don’t need a lot of these Rocks to get you flying. Hence, it's best to use a pipe/bong with a small cone to avoid letting this stuff go to waste.
  3. Mix it with some regular weed: take it and sprinkle into some regular weed.

Tips for Consuming MoonRocks and SunRocks

You shouldn’t take smoking caviar cannabis too lightly. Be prepared for a wild ride. Use the tips below to optimise your experience.

  • Optimise Set and Setting

The concepts of set and setting often pop up in psychedelic circles. “Set” applies to the mindset one enters an experience with, and “setting” describes one’s physical and social surroundings. Preparing the mind through meditation and optimising your surroundings with nature and music can dramatically increase the odds of a positive experience.

  • Have Good Friends Nearby

We all have a group of friends that we love to smoke weed with. Many of these friend groups date back to our teenage years. We share inside jokes, music, and many interesting stories. Surround yourself with good company and smoke together to ride the wave in unison.

  • Stay Hydrated

Being dehydrated when sober sucks, but dehydration while high sucks even more. More water in your blood with help to dilute THC levels, making you feel more alert and reducing the chance of an uncomfortable experience.

  • Keep Some Snacks to Hand

Eat before you smoke caviar cannabis, and indulge in some snacks when the munchies come knocking. Filling your belly before you blaze will reduce the jitters and give you energy for the next few hours.

  • Clear Your Schedule

If you’re going to smoke caviar weed, we recommend dedicating at least half of a day to the endeavour. Don’t plan on taking a hit and heading off to work, or any other commitment for that matter. Sit back, relax, and take it all in. Head out to the beach, forest, or garden free of worry.

OG Kush: The Strain of Choice for MoonRocks

When shopping for MoonRocks in the US, you’ll find that many recipes opt for the OG Kush strain.

Caviar Cannabis: Enjoy, but Proceed With Caution

The idea of getting way too high and freaking out might seem funny to some, but it really does suck when it happens to you. Plus, having a bad experience with such an expensive product seems like a total waste. Remove your ego and take things slow to make the most of this powerful and fun experience.

DisclaimerExtracts, concentrates, and oils used for dabbing are among the strongest cannabis products available. Proceed with caution when using substances high in THC. Start with low doses and slowly increase over time to build up a tolerance to the compound.

Remember: Set and Setting will help you deal with various situations.

Stay Cultivated.
