Google is giving publishers a window of 0 seconds to update their ad serving implementations before the GDPR comes into effect on the same day. Google also warns publishers against deploying these APIs prior to that date.
I am using cookiebot, makes it very easy. I don't even use the wordpress plugin, just put the code myself and modify the codes where YouTube videos and Adsense ads are.

doesn't matter if its personalized or non-personalized ads, ads must not appear and cookies must not placed until user consent is given
A question I have about the whole cookie acceptance implementation is whether it applies across sites. I.e. if someone opts in to Adsense tracking cookies on one site, will this be carried over to further sites they visit.

People will just get severely p'off if they get popups/cookie messages all over the place. It'll become completely user-unfriendly.
Yes, my bad. Since I am not using interested based ads, I was still thinking about simple contextual ads; which are (will) not require explicit consent.
If you’re using Google products like Google AdSense, you’ll be required by your contract to follow Google’s EU user consent policy. Implementing a consent mechanism like this for your EEA visitors can help you meet the requirements of Google’s own policies.
In this example, a user can click "Yes" to consent to the specified use of her data. If she clicks "No", she is alerted that she will see only non-tailored ads, and that cookies will be used to deliver the ads. She can confirm this choice, or return.

@travis I also thought about it, but after researching, I found out that it's not possible because the non-personalized ads also serve cookies and therefore you need to ask consent for those ads as well. So you need to pause any served ads, ask the user for consent for personal ads, if he refuse, you can offer non-personized ads and if he refuses you show no ads.
You must use commercially reasonable efforts to disclose clearly, and obtain consent to, any data collection, sharing and usage that takes place on any site, app, email publication or other property as a consequence of your use of Google products; and
You must use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that an end user is provided with clear and comprehensive information about, and consents to, the storing and accessing of cookies or other information on the end user’s device where such activity occurs in connection with a product to which this policy applies.
