        Salve Balm Flower Lab

        Interest in skincare grew significantly during the pandemic, and social media has continued to spur curiosity in this part of the self-care sphere. Believe it or not, CBD skin care is a growing niche of its own, and experts are studying this space along with the other parts of the industry.

        What are some CBD skincare benefits? First, it can decrease inflammation, meaning it can reduce the swelling or redness that often accompanies acne. Even better, thanks to its oil production regulation, these skincare products can then reduce future breakouts in general.

        What kind of products are best to consider working into a routine? CBD oil can be used on face and hair, while balms (like Flower Lab’s Simple Salve Balm) increase elasticity and reduce redness. Products like this, especially those that are rich, solventless extractions of pure, full spectrum cannabinoids are able to harness and enhance many of the body’s natural functions that lead to improved skin.

        Flower Lab Pills

        Many breakouts can be attributed to stress and hormone imbalances. CBD is a natural adaptogen, meaning it helps the body adapt to and normalize feelings of stress. Because of this quality, such skincare products can work to decrease the effects of hormones and other compounds that are released into the body in times of stress.

        Additionally, for anyone with eczema or rosacea, CBD can help calm flare-ups, smoothing the skin and reducing inflammation across the board.

        While there are CBD products like capsules (also discounted today!), gummies and pre-rolls that offer different functions, the more topical options like CBD oil and balm will have more focused effects when it comes to skin. And, unlike harsher, over the counter offerings, CBD skin care products can be used every day.

        Stock up on these ways to nourish and hydrate the skin and watch mom start enjoying the relaxing effects of CBD! Shop the entire line of discounted products for Mother’s Day here.

        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!”

        CBD for Dummies: The Difference Between CBD and CBG

        Differences between CBD 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.
