Let’s investigate the effects of moon rock weed in a bit more detail in the next section. As we mentioned in the section above, this all depends on the ingredients used to make the moon rock. Because there are three different variables (bud, oil, and kief) and because each of these can vary amongst themselves, there’s really no way to describe every single option.
Instead, we’ve reduced it all down to two main categories: THC and CBD. These cannabinoids offer different effects and benefits. So once you understand what they do, you can begin to tweak the mixture of your moon rock weed to get it exactly the way you want it. THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol if you want to be precise, is the stuff of legend that will get you seriously messed up (high) in no time flat. So if you don’t want to trip the light fantastic, don’t include THC (bud, oil, or kief) in your moon rock weed. That said, THC does offer some unique medicinal effects that you shouldn’t overlook.
The medical benefits of THC include: Pain relief Eased nausea and vomiting PTSD treatment Insomnia prevention Increased appetite Enhanced senses Destruction of free radicals (antioxidant) Reduced inflammation Relaxed muscles Stopped convulsions. That’s a lot of medicinal benefits from a cannabinoid that most people think of as a recreational tool. CBD (full name cannabidiol) is the true medicinal powerhouse of the bunch. On top of that, it won’t cause any psychoactive side-effects. So you can take CBD products without worrying that you’ll get high and lose half your day. CBD has a long list of medicinal benefits, including: Bone growth Inhibited growth in cancer cells Slowed bacterial growth Reduced risk of artery blockage Psoriasis treatment Prevention of nervous system degeneration Reduced blood sugar levels Better sleep Reduced seizures and convulsions Suppressed muscle spasms Anxiety relief Lessened severity of psychosis Reduced nausea and vomiting Appetite stimulation Reduced inflammation Decreased pain. Scientists continue to discover new ways to use CBD to treat both common and uncommon diseases. If it’s your goal to make your own moon rock weed (which we’ll discuss in the next section), you can mix and match how much THC and CBD you include in the final product. If you want straight-up “take me to another dimension,” opt for high-THC moon rock weed. If you want the medicinal effects without losing your grip on reality, make your moon rock weed with CBD bud, oil, and kief. Should You Make Your Own Moon Rock Weed Or Buy Already-Made? We’ll show you how to make your own moon rock weed from start to finish below, but keep in mind that it requires three distinct ingredients. When deciding whether to make your own moon rock weed, you basically have four choices: Produce all the ingredients at home (assuming you can grow your own bud). Purchase whole bud and then make your own honey oil and kief. Purchase whole bud, honey oil, and kief from your local dispensary. Buy already-made moon rock weed from a trusted source. It really depends on how much work you want to put into it and how much time you have to dedicate to the process. To help you answer the make-or-buy question, let’s break down the moon rock creation process from start to finish. Growing your own bud is a labor-intensive, time-consuming process. It requires a great deal of knowledge, experience, and specialized equipment to get the final product just right. Most people don’t have the time or the money necessary to really make a go of growing their own bud. We’re not saying it can’t be done, but it’s often better just to purchase your cannabis from someone who does it full time. Honey oil, or hash oil, is typically made through a process known as solvent extraction. In solvent extraction, a chemical solvent like alcohol, carbon dioxide, or butane is forced through the cannabis material. In the process, trichomes and other chemicals are stripped away from the plant.
The solvent is then removed by evaporation or straining, leaving the THC, CBD, terpenes, flavonoids, and other goodies behind. Butane is by far the most popular solvent used to make honey oil. It’s so popular that we often refer to the finished product as butane hash oil (BHO) to distinguish it from other extraction methods (like ice water extraction). The problem with making your own honey oil is that the process can be dangerous.
Butane is highly flammable and misusing it can result in serious injury or death.
