    CBD is Skyrocketing in Popularity

    CBD is Skyrocketing in Popularity

    A new survey conducted by JustCBD reveals that CBD products have become more popular as people are struggling with their mental health, especially during the pandemic. 24.8% of the 20 000 respondents indicated they take CBD for better sleep, 22.7% used it for relaxation, 22.5% for pain, and 19.8% to relieve anxiety. ⁠

    Most of the respondents (89%) revealed they had tried CBD for the first time during the last six months. As the results show – half of the respondents use CBD products once a day, while a third – several times a day. The pandemic has greatly impacted the mental well-being of many, so it is no surprise people mostly choose to use it in the evening – after a long and stressful day.

    GWAR Launch "Bud of Gods" CBD on Consequence Shop

    GWAR Launch "Bud of Gods" CBD on Consequence Shop

    The intergalactic barbaric warriors known as GWAR have been in a lab for the past year working with puny human scientists to cultivate their own line of mind-blowing CBD! Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the alien overlords have teamed up with yours truly to bring you GWAR’s Bud of Gods -- so you too can go green with GWAR!

    Bud of Gods CBD is a premium small batch hemp flower that contains a descendant of the Sour Tsunami flower, a heritage that creates an Indica-favoring hybrid with a taste of tropical citrus and earthy undertones. As with all Consequence Shop CBD products, Bud of Gods is sustainably grown, meticulously crafted, and purely processed to promote holistic health -- mind, body, and soul.

    Inspired by your favorite interplanetary metal band, these dense green-violet buds with bright orange hairs offer a comforting sense of clarity to bring inner peace to your inner Scumdog.

    “GWAR has been tearing the universe a new one for literally eons," states lead singer Blóthar the Berserker. "It’s not easy being an intergalactic warrior shaman, and the leader of the most insane shock rock band in history. I’ve found that after a long day of bloodthirsty battle, nothing soothes my mind like the Bud of Gods CBD. It is the perfect sacrament with which to wind down from a white-hot berserker rage. Grab some today, and feel your petty human concerns melt away into the sweet nothingness you crave.”

    Guitarist Pustulus Maximus adds, “Bud of Gods CBD is the perfect companion for job interviews, parole hearings, child births, and socially distanced funerals. Pusty sez, ‘It does a body good’!" Meanwhile, fellow axeman Balsac The Jaws of Death insists, "It's the only thing I've found to sooth my ever present bloodlust!”

    GWAR’s Bud of Gods limited-edition CBD is now available for pre-order, with shipments set to arrive just in time for 4/20 (April 20th). Among the initial products are a CBD Flower, available in a 3.5 gram jar or in a mylar bag (choice of 3.5 or 7 grams). Additionally, pre-rolls are available in single packs (1 gram) or three-packs (3 grams).

    Along with the aforementioned CBD products, GWAR fans can also rep Bud of Gods with a limited-edition capsule of accessories and apparel, including rolling papers, rolling tray, bud grinder, hoodies, T-shirts, and more.

    Differences between CBD CBG

    CBD for Dummies: The Difference Between CBD and CBG

    It’s no secret that CBD is taking the wellness world by storm. The non-psychoactive cannabis compound has been widely popularized due to its calming effects and potential health benefits. However, CBD isn’t the only compound of the cannabis plant that possesses healing properties. CBG is another powerful sibling compounds of CBD that each carry different potential benefits.
    So, what exactly is the difference between CBD and CBG and when should you use which one? Read on for a beginner’s guide to the benefits of each.

    CBD -- The Multipurpose Compound

    Surely, you’ve heard of CBD -- the compound that has intrigued researchers and scientists alike due to its myriad of health benefits. CBD has been studied as a potential treatment for inflammation, arthritis, cardiovascular dysfunction, acne, and so much more. CBD also has proven neuroprotective effects and is being investigated for its anti-cancer properties, though further research is needed on that front.

    The compound is closely related to THC, the psychoactive cannabis compound that’s responsible for the high one feels after smoking marijuana. They both have similar therapeutic attributes -- however, unlike THC, CBD cannot make you intoxicated or cause you to feel stoned. CBD is a safe, non-addictive substance, and it is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids that are unique to the cannabis plant.

    CBG -- The Sister Compound to CBD

    Cannabigerol (CBG) is a compound of the cannabis plant that is highly similar to CBD in both its chemical structure and effects. However, there are some major differences between the two. Unlike CBD, CBG is known for its potential digestion-boosting and antibacterial qualities. On the other hand, CBD also can be used to treat and calm the nervous system, while it does not appear that CBG carries these benefits.

    While various studies have shown the effectiveness of CBG, more research is needed to fully understand the benefits of this compound.

     

    At the Consequence Shop, we offer a wide variety of CBG, and CBD products to help with ailments and match any lifestyle, from tinctures to gummies to a variety of flower strains. Let us know in the comments if you’ve tried CBG, or CBD, and what benefits you've seen. Or, if you plan to sample the different cannabinoids, let us know which one strikes your interest most.

    Microdosing for Dummies

    Microdosing for Dummies: How to Properly Microdose

    A beginner’s guide to figuring out the perfect dose for you 

    CBD, the non-psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant, has been receiving positive buzz over the past few years for its healing and medicinal properties. It's widely known for being a quick, holistic solution for chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. There's even ongoing research into its potential use in treating epilepsy! It's clear at this point that CBD is more than just a passing trend in the wellness industry --  it's a natural remedy that's here to stay.

    Those looking to try CBD may be overwhelmed by the variety of forms it now comes in, with delivery methods ranging from gummies to lotions to tinctures you can put in your latte. That's why newcomers to the beneficial cannabis compound may be interested in microdosing.

    CBD microdosing is a technique that involves taking very small amounts of cannabidiol on a regular basis. Experts recommend starting out "low and slow" with your dosage until you can gauge how CBD effects your body and mind. That allows you to hone in on the sweet spot of just the right levels to achieve your desired results for your own needs.

    Microdosing is a great way to better understand the effects of CBD on your body, so we've created this primer to help you begin your journey into the benefits of this natural, versatile healer.

    What Products Should I Use to Microdose CBD?

    The most common way to microdose CBD is by using a tincture or oil. However, some prefer to consume their CBD via gummies, vaping, or even smoking CBD flower. There's benefits to each method, whether it's concentration, dosage control, or simply ease of consumption. It really all comes down to a matter of preference and comfort. Our online shop offers a variety of gummies, tinctures, flower, and pre-rolls for your microdosing needs. In the end, stick to whatever option feels like it best matches your lifestyle and needs.

    Okay, So How Do I Microdose?

    First, keep in mind that everyone’s  body and tolerance is different, so each individual's ideal CBD dosage will vary. However, there are some key rules of thumb to keep in mind when it comes to determining your proper dosage. The recommended dose for beginners is typically 1 mg of CBD, or 2 mg if you have a higher body fat percentage. After consuming your dosage, closely monitor the way you are feeling. Remember that it is impossible to become intoxicated from CBD, as it is non-psychoactive. If you experience increased feelings of relaxation, peace of mind, and calmness, this is simply the CBD doing its job to keep you clear and level-headed. If you have yet to feel any effects from the CBD within 2-3 hours, increase your serving size by 1 mg and see how it affects your body. Repeat this routine for the next 2-3 days until you find the dosage that works best for you. The average usually falls between 1-10 mg, so your can expect your perfect dose to be within this range. Let us know in the comments below if you’ve ever tried or are planning to try a CBD microdosing schedule, and check out our shop for a selection of CBD products to help you get started!

    Introducing Earthy CBD, Presented by Consequence

    Introducing Earthy CBD, Presented by Consequence

    Consequence is proud to announce that is the exclusive online retailer for Earthy Now, a quality hemp distributor based in Asheville, NC that partners with hemp farmers in Pacific Northwest for certified and organic hemp. As part of our initial rollout, we're offering hemp smokes, flower, and tinctures.

    Consequence of Sound began 13 years ago as a music publication. In the decade that’s followed, the publication has expanded its coverage scope to include other pop culture verticals, including film and television. Now, as Consequence of Sound officially rebrands itself as simply, Consequence, the publication is launching a new content vertical dedicated to health and wellness.

    The last nine months have taken a toll on everyone -- both physically and mentally. Prolonged periods of self-isolation has led to a staggering increase in depression and anxiety. In fact, according to the CDC, over 40% of Americans surveyed this summer reported suffering some form of mental health issues during the pandemic.

    Consequence is supporting its readers with a series of initiatives tied specifically to promoting mental health and wellness. Our new content vertical will feature informative and relevant content pertaining to mental health and wellness, highlighted by the launch of a new podcast called Going There with Dr. Mike Friedman. Launching November 12th, the weekly podcast explores mental health through the personal journeys of artists. The goal of the series is to provide a focused conversation around specific issues within mental health, without being myopic.

    Additionally, Consequence has partnered with some of our favorite musicians to create exclusive CBD strains. Beyond providing a new revenue stream for these artists during a time of no touring, a portion of all sales on the Consequence Store is donated to MusiCares’ COVID-19 Artist Relief and their support of independent musicians.

    Many more details are to come, so stay tuned!
