CBD is mainly a component that is found in the cannabis plant and is formally known as cannabinoids. CBD oils contain concentrations of CBD and can be used for different ailments.

Is CBD marijuana?

Marijuana contains both THT and CBD and each one has different effects on the body. Whereas THC results in a mind-altering “high” when smoked or used in cooking, CBD is not psychoactive and doesn’t change a person’s state of mind when introduced to the body.

However, CBD does affect the body and research suggest that it can have medical benefits.

Where does CBD originate from?

The cannabis plant’s least processed form is hemp of which a significant ingredient is CBD. Marijuana and Hemp both originate from the same plant, but each is used for different reasons. Hemp plants are mainly used for manufacturing pure CBD oil.

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

There are some good ones to buy, but you must ensure that you are buying pure CBD oil as it can have a variety of health benefits.

1.    Pain relief and anti-inflammatory uses – most people buy over-the-counter drugs for chronic pain or to relieve muscle pains or stiffness. The research found that CBD has reduced chronic inflammation and pain in rats and mice dramatically, making this a more natural remedy to consider.

2.    Quit smoking – studies have revealed that smokers who used inhalers with CBD compounds have smoked fewer cigarettes than average without experiencing further cravings for nicotine.

3.    Epilepsy treatment – the FDA approved Epidiolex (containing CBD) as a therapy for two conditions that are rare and characterised by epileptic seizures namely Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) and Dravet Syndrome (DS). Both conditions proved to be troublesome to control with other types of medications.

4.    Combatting cancer – Researches found that CBD assisted with preventing cancer from spreading, suppressing the growth of cancer cells and eliminating them all together. Further research is required to successfully classify it as an accompaniment to standard cancer treatments, as it contains a low level of toxicity.

5.    Anxiety disorders – reviews found that CBD may be reducing anxiety-related behaviour in people with conditions that include:

       Post-traumatic stress disorder

       Panic disorder

       Social anxiety disorder

       Obsessive-compulsive disorder

       General anxiety disorder.

6.    Type 1 Diabetes – studies suggest that CBD may reduce inflammation in the pancreas, protecting against or slowing down the development of type 1 diabetes in a person. Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system attacking cells in the pancreas which results in inflammation.

7.    Acne – is caused by overworked sebaceous glands and inflammation in the body. The anti-inflammatory properties in CBD can assist with lowering the production of sebum that leads to acne as a result of overproduction.

8.    Alzheimer’s disease - published research suggests that CBD could assist people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease to preserve the ability to recognise the faces of people they know. This was the first evidence found to identify CBD as a treatment to slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life.

But one day he saw a swan. "This swan is so white," he thought, "and I am so black.

This swan must be the happiest bird in the world."

He expressed his thoughts to the swan. "Actually," the swan replied, "I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colours. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation."

The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, "I lived a very happy life—until I saw a peacock. I have only two colours, but the
peacock has multiple colours."

The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him.

After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock. "Dear peacock," the crow said, "you are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet."

The peacock replied, "I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo.

I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere."

That's our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don't value what God has given us. This all leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness.

Have Life ahead valuing the things God has given us.

Learn the secret of being happy and discard the comparison which leads only to unhappiness.

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled:

"Why did you take all this time to come? Don't you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don't you have the sense of responsibility?"

The doctor smiled and said:
"I am sorry, I wasn't in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you'd calm down so that I can do my work"

"Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do?" said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again and replied: "I will say what Job said in the Holy Book "From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God". Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God's grace"

"Giving advice when we're not concerned is so easy" Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,
"Thank goodness!, your son is saved!" And without waiting for the father's reply he carried on his way running. "If you have any question, ask the nurse!!"

"Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait some minutes so that I ask about my son's state" Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: "His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son's surgery. And now that he saved your son's life, he left running to finish his son's burial."

They were getting married. It was a large celebration. All of their friends and family came to see the lovely ceremony and to partake of the festivities and celebrations. A wonderful time was had by all.
The bride was gorgeous in her white wedding gown and the groom was very dashing in his black tuxedo. Everyone could tell that the love they had for each other was true. A few months later, the wife comes to the husband with a proposal: "I read in a magazine, a while ago, about how we can strengthen our marriage." she offered. "Each of us will write a list of the things that we find a bit annoying with the other person. Then, we can talk about how we can fix them together and make our lives happier together."

The husband agreed, so each of them went to a separate room in the house and thought of the things that annoyed them about the other. They thought about this question for the rest of the day and wrote down what they came up with.

The next morning, at the breakfast table, they decided that they would go over their lists. "I'll start," offered the wife. She took out her list. It had many items on it enough to fill 3 pages, in fact. As she started reading the list of the little annoyances, she noticed that tears were starting to appear in her husbands eyes. "What's wrong?" she asked.

"Nothing" the husband replied, "keep reading your lists." The wife continued to read until she had read all three pages to her husband. She neatly placed her list on the table and folded her hands over top of it.

"Now, you read your list and then we'll talk about the things on both of our lists." She said happily.

Quietly the husband stated, "I don't have anything on my list. I think that you are perfect the way that you are. I don't want you to change anything for me. You are lovely and wonderful and I wouldn't want to try and change anything about you."

The wife, touched by his honesty and the depth of his love for her and his acceptance of her, turned her head and wept.

In life, there are enough times when we are disappointed, depressed and annoyed. We don't really have to go looking for them.

We have a wonderful world that is full of beauty, light and promise. Why waste time in this world looking for the bad, disappointing or annoying when we can look around us, and see the wondrous things before us?

I believe that WE ARE HAPPIEST WHEN we see and praise the good and try our best to forget the bad. Nobody's perfect but we can find perfectness in them to change the way we see them

Always remember that you can never find a Perfect partner to love you the way you wanted, only a person who’s willing to love you more that what you are. Someone who’ll accept you for what can and can’t be. And that’s even better than perfect...

It was a fine sunny day. Lottie and her dog Max were in their beach hut. As they sat Lottie’s mind wandered and she looked out to sea. There, in the distance, she saw the large bulky of a huge whale. All of a sudden it blew a fountain from it blow hole. To her delight she quickly realised it was not water it was glitter!

It was the most fabulous whale in the world. Lottie ran down to the beach as fast as her Goochie flip flops would carry her! She called to the whale, called him by name because she knew who he was and I hope you do too, dear reader.

“Fabulous Whale” she yelled! “Fabulous Whale please come to over here”. To Lotties delight he turned and with a fountain of glitter swam right towards her.
The Fabulous Whale swam right up the beach, just as close as he dared get to little Lottie. His big head swayed side to side as he tried to focus on her with both eyes. Eventually he settled down to peering with one eye bigger than her head.

“Hello Fabulous Whale” she said.
“Hellloooooo Looottie bellowed the fantastic creature “How is my little friend today?”
“Not very well unfortunately Whale.”
“Awwww poor Lottie ” the whale crooned, he let out a sympathetic moan that resonated through the beach and made it feel like she was stood on a giant purring cat.
“Can you help me Whale?” she asked sadly.
“Wellllll there is one very special thing I can do”. With that he turned and swam back out to sea.


Lottie watched, fascinated, as he swam away. Just before he disappeared out of sight, as she thought he was leaving her, he turned back. As he came he got deeper and faster. He swam faster and faster all the while staying close to the bottom. Faster he rushed until suddenly he turned straight up and lept into the air! He turned his bulky body impossibly gracefully and then came down in the world’s biggest belly flop!
A wave of water careered away from him crashing over the beach and Lottie.

When she had cleared her eyes of sea water Lottie looked up just in time to see the whale turning to leave. He called back “Goood byeee Lottie I hope it works”. She felt a strange tingle run right through her whole body. Lottie giggled and was happy to have spoken to her friend but wondered when the magic would work and she wouldn’t be ill.

The whale swam away very pleased with himself. He knew that he was definitely oh so fabulous but he wasn’t magic. He couldn’t cure Lottie, that tingle wasn’t magic, it was sea water getting into her pants. Though he could make his friend feel better and that’s what mattered really.

You can't fix someones problems but at least you ca try to make them feel good for some moments. Small acts of kindness and love matter a lot !

One day a mouse was in search of food in the forest. While searching it came near the den of a lion and smelt something very good. Guided by the smell, it went inside the den and found several pieces of meat of an animal that was eaten by the lion. The mouse ate quite a few pieces. Seeing the many pieces that are left over there, it has decided to stay on so that it can eat it in the night also. Having eaten so much meat it was fast asleep within minutes.

It has become dark and the Lion returned to its den. Since it was dark it could not see the mouse sleeping on the floor. The Lion had brought with it a piece of a lamb and ate it fully, leaving the bones aside.

The Lion after sometime had slept off and started snoring loudly. The lion’s snoring woke up the mouse. The mouse ran helter-skelter and bumped on the lion’s leg. The mouse felt the fur on the leg smooth and started exploring it. As it reached the ear of the lion, the lion got disturbed and woke up with a sudden jerk that made the mouse slip down. Who is here? – the lion roared. The little mouse with a feeble voice replied, “ I am a mouse here”. How dare you disturb my sleep and where are you? – again shouted the lion.

I am sorry and I am here – said the mouse. The Lion lit a lamp and searched for the mouse. It found the den very clean with no pieces of meat and bones and finally it saw a mouse in a corner of its den shivering with fear. The mouse looked pretty. The lion thought for a while. It thought that since the mouse was here its den is kept clean otherwise it would be stinking with meat pieces and bones all around. Why not allow this mouse to be here so that it keeps the den clean by eating away the bones and leftover meat – thus the lion thought about.

Ok tell me why did to enter my den? – The lion continued its question.

The mouse replied with folded hands: I was in search of food and the smell of the bones and meat pieces lead me to your den. I am sorry, I shall leave now, please allow me go”.

Ok, if you want to stay here you can do so, but you shall not disturb my sleep.

The fear of the mouse did not reduce. So it has repeated:” Please allow me go”.



Seeing the mouse in that fearful condition, the lion felt sorry for it and said in a very soft tone: Oh little mouse do not get frightened. Just listen to me carefully. I hunt everyday and bring the carcass of some animal. I do not eat it fully. You are a small animal and hence you can easily eat the leftovers and be happy. If you like eating like this without searching for food, you can stay here.

The mouse was surprised and with happiness it said “ Yes Mr. Lion, I shall stay in the den” One more condition: Said the lion.

You must keep the den clean by eating all the leftover pieces of meat and bones. If you can not eat fully, you shall carry them away and keep the den clean.

OK Mr. Lion said the mouse.

OK now you sleep in that corner and I shall sleep here in the middle of the den: saying this the lion went to sleep.

Both the lion and the mouse were fast asleep. The mouse has a habit of rolling freely on the floor while sleeping. So, by midnight the mouse came nearer to the lion and started feeling its warmth and went further deep into the sleep. In the sleep it started comforting itself by placing itself in the fold of the lion’s leg.

The lion too felt it OK and adjusted its leg to allow the mouse to sleep. The early rays of the sun passing through the crack in the den fell on the lion’s eyes and made it wake up. As it opened its eyes, it found the mouse sleeping innocently well on its leg.

The lion watched the mouse for sometime and later it woke up the mouse gently with its paw. The mouse woke up and looked straight into the face of the lion that appeared so big as it was very close. It cried loudly and tried to jump out but prevented gently by the lion.

Do be frightened, you have slept on my leg and hence I woke you up: said the lion. Looking straight into the eyes of the lion the mouse broke into peels of laughter. Seeing mouse the lion too started laughing.

Together the lion and the mouse lived forever….

When you have to fill in the forms and gather the correct documentation to get a social security card, it is nice to know that you can do it in the comfort of your own home. You do not have to attempt this complex task by yourself. It is possible to do it online with the help of a professional filing agency.

Not only will expert assistance be on call to help you through every step, but you will also be provided with an Ebook that has easily understood instructions. If anything is too hard to understand the extended customer service will provide the solution. The on-call expert knows precisely what information and documentation are required.

Help with Online Social Security Card Applications

Because professional online application specialists are not affiliated with any government agency, they have just one priority: ensuring that you fill in your form 100 percent correctly the first time. You are the only person that matters, while government agencies deal with thousands of people every day, which is why they do not have the time and patience to extend any help.

If any little detail is left out or written incorrectly your social security card application is denied. Every person who fills in an SS-5 form (the form that has to be submitted before the card application process can begin) has to fill in a multitude of sections and provide different documents. This is why it is not a good idea to ask a friend or family member for help.


How it Works

Obtaining your social security cards online is surprisingly easy. When you use an application service, all you have to do is answer a few easy-to-answer onsite questions. The site uses these answers to generate an accurate SS-5 form automatically. There will be no nail-biting apprehension wondering whether the form is correct.

On top of the simple online form application, your professional application assistant can help you know what documentation should be submitted as well. The document criterion is different for every person so knowing what identification papers you need for a successful application is very helpful.


New or Replacement Social Security Cards


Imagine paying one small fee and having access to all the guidance you need to succeed when filling in social security card forms. Putting a value on time and effort is impossible. Eliminating the possibility of your application being denied is priceless.

The requirements are different depending on whether you are applying for a new or a replacement card. That’s why you need a premiere online application service to help you. Even if you are doing this in the early hours of the morning or late at night, if you need to reach out to anyone for further clarification, help is at hand from the 24-hour customer support.

If the idea of applying for your social security card without guidance makes you uneasy, a professional application assistance company may be the right choice for you.

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness.



The doctor explained the situation to her little brother and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save her." As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded.

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?" Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her.

And he was willing to do that for her.
