Hot Topic: CBD Oil

By Pete | @kingpetey | 14 Sep 2018

Of late, the benefits of CBD rich oil are becoming very mainstream. CBD is a compound from the Cannabis plant that doesn’t get you high. Because of it’s popularity, there are hundreds of new online CBD stores popping up. Because of this, finding the right CBD oil for purchasing can be quite overwhelming especially if you are new and don’t know where to begin. CBD is available in many forms along with its numerous products and brands. At one point the oil was not available for purchase because of its perceived assosiation with marijuana, but now the oil has proven its benefits, safety, and lack of ability to get you high. We show you various places where you can buy this oil and even a few ideas on how to buy the oil without getting scammed.

Online stores

Purchasing CBD oil online is perhaps one of the most convenient, quick and secure ways of getting the oil delivered right at your doorstep legally. The greatest thing about online shopping is that you not only get the product but you also get a wide variety in each type to choose from and most these online CBD brands stock everything. Moreover, you can even compare and contrast the quality and pricing of the merchandise from different brands. You can read reviews about both product and merchant and even check out review sites like CBD Nerds. I would advise not purchasing from companies or brands that don’t have transparent 3rd party lab test results. You can choose brands like Thought Cloud CBD who are transparent with 3rd party results to ensure purity and safety.

Dispensaries

Today, medical cannabis dispensaries are popping up just about everywhere in many countries and especially the U.S. They are only in select states where recreational and medicinal marijuana are allowed. The dispensaries are required to abide by strict licensing guidelines and security requirements. Even though CBD is legal online, you can purchase CBD that also has elements of THC form these dispensaries which research shows has more beneficial effects than just hemp derived CBD.

Brick and Mortar Stores

The CBD oil can also be purchased over the counter as well from many brick and mortar shops like the nutrition stores or smoke shops. The advantage here is that you can see the product with your own eyes before making the purchase but like online, your products will not have THC. You can also speak to the store representative or owner and have all your doubts and queries answered about the product before actually buying the product. If you take this route I would still recommend doing research online about the brands in question. Checking out for the third-party test results of the product will ensure that you are genuinely buying a high-quality and safe product.

Making the right selection

You might be purchasing the CBD oil from any of the sources mentioned above but for all of them; you must research and use personal discretion to nail the right product. Instead of opting for the lowest price; it is better to spend more and invest in a quality product which is likely to give you better results. I recommend oils or vaping since it’s the quickest way to have CBD enter your system. If you want to have fun then go for products like gummies or chocolates. Try not to opt for products which lack a label or table of ingredients. Reviews of CBD oil and its various forms and products is another indicator of you making the right choice. I’m an avid CBD user and if you decide to try it out be sure to use this buying guide!

Large numbers of online businesses are started every year, in part due to low barriers to entry and the almost unlimited potential audience the business could then reach. In recent years one area of online business that has seen high levels of growth is that of online casinos. In fact, this market has been highly competitive with new brands always trying to set their mark against established brands like Unibet. But what does it take to get an online casino business up and running though?

The first thing that is necessary to do is define who the target audience of your online casino is going to be. It is now quite a crowded market, so targeting your site at a particular segment of the market could be vital to the success of your online casino. For example it could be aimed at a particular demographic of people or the games within the site could have a specific theme, e.g. it could just contain games with a superhero theme or just retro games.

Next you must decide which casino software and games you intend to use. The software you use will run your online casino and help you manage the whole site, including processing of payments, account management and handling marketing campaigns. The games you offer are what will attract people to your site and this should be a major consideration in deciding which supplier to choose.  There are two different types of suppliers to choose from, the ones which develop the games and platforms themselves and those that offer a package that provides gaming content from other suppliers. If you go with the second option it will probably be more expensive but it means you can have games from many different providers without having to sign a lot of different contracts.

There is then the decision of whether to go with a provider who demands a monthly fee or one that doesn’t and will send you the source code files immediately.

The top three game developers are Net Entertainment, Playtech and Microgaming and it is vital to have a successful online casino to at a minimum have a selection of games from at least one of the three. The cost of this must be taken into consideration though as they demand monthly fees of 10,000 Euros and will take a minimum of 15% in royalties.

If one of your main decision making criteria is in terms of budget and you are looking to minimise costs it is worth taking a look at CasinoWebScripts.com who are a software provider who look to help those starting out and don’t require any monthly payments. They allow anyone to buy as many games as they wish and allow the casinos to keep 100% of their profits. They also offer a service where they will develop any game you would like and you can pay around 100 000 Euros for a full solution that will allow use of their products for the next 100 years.

Finally, when starting an online casino make sure you take your time before rushing into any decisions and speak to different suppliers before deciding who are the right ones for you to work in conjunction with.

There's no manual that tells you how to handle every subject in your blog, blogs aren't blogs without opinions. On the other hand, with sensitive topics, you must be careful in order not to kill your online and blog reputation. With the growth of freelancing, there are many situations where blog posts may become hot topics. So, what are the golden rules you should follow to keep your reputation in tact? Reputational damage can be hard to fix, some details can be compensated with professional help, but it is much better to avoid this harm in the first place. Here are a few tips to do just that. 

Be sensitive to other people’s values

Not everyone will agree with your opinion, just as you won’t agree with theirs. But when it comes to more than just opinion, when your articles strike at people’s values, traditions and culture, that can have a huge impact. Understanding how your article may affect the people reading it and being sensitive to that is very important. You’ve heard that line think before you speak. Well that’s the same as blog writing too.  You need to fully respect other people’s values and even if you don’t agree, avoid targeting people, especially when it’s something that cannot be changed.  

Respond to negative comments 

A blog is about communication, so you need to be open about talking to people who read what you write. Don’t just ignore bad feedback, by responding and respecting opinions or even further backing up your own opinion. You are showing you care about what your readers think and perhaps engaging more readers to share their opinions. You will always get the trollsthat are looking for a backlash. However, do not respond angrily. Make your response clear and composed, don’t lose your cool. 

Its important to be yourself

When you write a blog, you are sharing yourself with the world. So, you need to share your true self. Lying will only come back on you in the end. There are many reasons why people may lie in their blog writing. Perhaps to avoid criticism, to make themselves appear to be better or more important than they are or sometimes just to fit in. This only makes it harder to back up views and opinions if they come under scrutiny. Plus, if you are caught to be lying in one instance, it undermines everything you have shared and quality honest work you have done. Avoid reputational damage by telling the truth, being yourself and if you need to, say nothing at all. 

Use trusted sources

There’s nothing worse than being called out after using an untrustworthy source. Make sure you check and double check your sources and most importantly write from your own experience.  Don’t be drawn into speculation or share photographs or pictures that are not associated with the topic you are talking about. Sharing untrue information, some might even call it fake news, can reduce the trust from your audience and damage your reputation.  

 Do you know how to handle sensitive topics on your blog?

Think back to why you started your business and blog in the first place. How do you feel about the niche it represents? Think about this when you are writing about sensitive topics and you will write true to yourself. In essence, you should use trusted sources, respect other people’s values and answer criticisms and negative comments in a dignified way. And remember, if you do come to some reputational harm, help is out there to reduce the impact as much as possible. 

Why is gaming on PC better?

By Pete | @kingpetey | 25 Jun 2018

There is a long-running dispute between console and PC gamers over which is better. While both sides have their merits, here is why PC gaming is ultimately the winner.

Customisation

Once you have bought your PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, you cannot change or upgrade them beyond buying a larger hard drive. However, with a PC, you can change absolutely everything. You can buy a mouse with 12 buttons on it, a more comfortable keyboard and better speakers – and none of these upgrades are even scratching the surface. If you want to really overhaul your gaming rig, then you can buy more RAM, get a better graphics card and even insert a liquid cooling system. When it comes to customisation, nothing beats PC. Building a PC can seem daunting, but it is also a really fun and very satisfying project to take on.

More games

Every games console that has ever been released, even the ones that can play some older games, have a tiny library of games in comparison to PC. On PC, as well as buying from an ever-expanding library of new games being released on platforms like Steam, GOG and itch.io, you also have access to pretty much every PC game ever released. Sure, some of the older games require a bit of fiddling to make them work on Windows 10, but by and large, you have so much choice. On Steam, over 7,600 games were released in 2017. On top of that, you can also play thousands of different browser games online. There are loads of different genres to choose from – MMORPGs, racing games, puzzle games and online casino games. Casino games in particular have surged in popularity, with the classics such as poker, roulette and blackjack undergoing a digital makeover. Stakers.com offer a variety of the latest offerings, and with a variety of online browser games to choose from, it is easy to see why consumers flock to the PC. 

More powerful and cheaper in the long run

Yes, the Xbox One and the PS4 make boasts about their processing power, but you can put together a PC that is far more powerful than those assembly-line jobs. You can look up various parts and compare them in price and power to a console to see just how easy it is to make a PC that is more powerful than the newest generation of consoles. While building a powerful PC is probably going to cost a couple hundred pounds more than buying a console, buying a new console every five years is going to cost more than gradually replacing the parts of your PC. Just look at the figures. The PS4 came out in November 2013, and then the more powerful PS4 Pro launched a mere three years later. If you bought a PS4 new in 2013, it would have cost you £349.99, and if you then bought a PS4 Pro on release, then you have spent another £349.99.

Mods

In addition to the wider selection of games available on PC, there are also people developing new content for PC games that have already been released. These modifications, or ‘mods’, can be anything from new levels and weapons to entirely new story experiences. There is a mod for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that turns all of the dragons into WWE legend Macho Man Randy Savage, complete with voice clips of him shouting. With that in mind, just try and tell me that console gaming is better than PC gaming.
