What Are Sunrocks?
Dipped into potent concentrate, sunrocks are cannabis flowers known for strong long-lasting stone effects. Sunrocks are sometimes also covered in hash with their nugs and extract derived from the same cannabis strain.
Similar to powerhouse moonrocks, sunrock potency levels are very high. The main difference between sunrocks and moonrocks is that moonrocks are dipped in cannabis oil and then covered in kief (e.g., the trichomes of the cannabis plant) in order to give a lunar appearance. Sunrocks, meanwhile, are drenched just in cannabis concentrate without the kief, giving it a sunnier appearance. Both sunrocks and moonrocks have a sticky texture, but sunrocks appear amber in color while moonrocks are a whitish-gray.
How to Use
Sunrock users typically use a glass pipe or bong for the best smoking experience. You can prepare to smoke sunrocks in three easy steps:
Break down the nugs into small workable pieces. Wear gloves if you want to avoid sticky hands.
Mix and layer the sunrocks together in a bowl, but avoid using a grinder which can create a mess due to sunrocks’ texture. Even without grinding, your fingers will likely become sticky from the resinous sunrock material.
When you’re ready to smoke, use a hemp wick instead of a butane lighter to enhance your flavor experience.
Be prepared for heightened sensations that begin swiftly and last longer than your average smoke session.
How Do Sunrocks Make You Feel?
Some sunrock users have described amazing mental effects and an overall pleasing experience. A delicious taste experience is also a common description of people who use sunrocks. However, keep in mind that sun rock potency levels are very high, and you don’t need much to have an intense experience.
The way sunrocks will make you feel depends on your tolerance levels, and unique effects are expected for each individual. Sunrocks will most likely intoxicate you more quickly than regular weed and even cannabis strains with high THC levels.
Potential Health Benefits and Uses
High-THC cannabis products offer a variety of potential health benefits. Products like sunrocks that are high in THC may help with the following:
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Nausea/vomiting, including from chemotherapy
- Eating Disorders like anorexia
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Chronic pain
- Neuropathic pain of the nerves, often affecting people with cancer
- Autoimmune diseases and disorders like Crohn’s and lupus
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
In addition, high-THC products are an enjoyable, uplifting and mood-boosting mental experience for many people, especially those who are regular cannabis consumers that have developed some tolerance to THC.
Potential Risks and Side Effects
First, sunrocks present a risk of lung and other respiratory damage since smoking is the standard consumption method. This risk increases over time if you smoke sunrocks and other substances frequently.
Furthermore, cannabis with potent THC concentrations often causes more side effects than CBD-dominant products. Too much THC can trigger the following side effects in some individuals:
- Feeling of dissociation or disconnectedness from the body
- Extreme fatigue
- Dry cottonmouth
- Red eyes
- Feeling of numbness or tingling
- Paranoia and, occasionally, hallucinations
These potential side effects will wear off as the THC leaves your system. But it can take a full day or longer for the effects of THC to completely vanish from the body, especially if you have little experience with the psychoactive cannabinoid. If you experience any severe side effects, seek medical attention immediately.
Tips for Using Sunrocks Safely
The most important point to remember about sunrocks is their potency. Therefore, start low and go slow with a small puff or two at a time from your smoking apparatus. Also, be sure to purchase sunrocks from a licensed cannabis dispensary to ensure the highest quality product made from top-shelf concentrate.
If you feel any unpleasant side effects from sunrocks, take a break and wait an hour or two before consuming more. If you still feel unwanted effects from sunrocks, try a lower THC product through alternative ingestion methods such as topical or sublingual.
The Bottom Line: Should You Use Sunrocks?
Use sunrocks if you are comfortable with potent cannabis containing high THC levels. Avoid using sunrocks if you are new to cannabis, have a sensitivity to THC or prefer ingestion methods other than smoking. Consult with your doctor before you use sunrocks or any other marijuana products to see if they are right for you and your health goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
