Lidtke imports their CBD oil from Danish organic farms and has some very cool products for sale on their online store. Their CBD Gold line of tinctures is blended with supplements such as 5-HTP, iodine, GABA, L-tryptophan, turmeric, and a whole-food vitamin C complex (as opposed to isolated ascorbic acid found in many products) in addition to their Original/Plain drops that contain CBD oil mixed with MCT oil, honey, vegetable glycerine, and sunflower lecithin. The combination of CBD oil with natural plant-based ingredients proven to be powerful is always something we love to see. Why not add a little extra anti-inflammatory action in the mix?
Lidtke employs supercritical CO2 extraction and uses absolutely nothing artificial in their formulations. Bravo on that front.
Our issue lies in the safety department. At first glance, Lidtke seems to have Certificates of Analysis for each SKU, but a second look tells another story. First of all, these CoAs are printed on internal letterhead, not the original document issued by the testing lab. We’re not saying they’re lying about the results, but best practices dictate showing the original document printed by the third-party lab. Secondly, they do not include comprehensive results for contaminants testing, but instead say “Foreign Matter” with green text above that says “PASS.” Not enough to get the Safety Badge from us.
Lidtke is a natural supplement retailer that offers its own line of CBD tinctures, including synergistic herbal blends for humans and pets. Anti-inflammatory healers like turmeric and ginger are combined with full spectrum CBD oil to produce powerful combinations for relief. Lidtke uses zero artificial ingredients, something we applaud and wish we saw more of with the onslaught of new CBD companies eager to get in on the goods. And Lidtke looks like they’re trying to be transparent by posting test results for each SKU. But we did a double-take that reveals these CoAs not to be as comprehensive as they should be.
Bottom Line – Lidtke produces quality CBD oils and blends them with natural healers like turmeric for robust products that possibly have positive natural benefits. We know we are sticklers on safety, but it’s for good reason. We cannot in good conscience grant the Safety Badge for tests printed on company letterhead that do not list contaminants results. We encourage Lidtke to step up their game in this department to really cover their bases.
