Who We Are

We are believers in holistic medicine and modern science. We are advocates of bringing them together to achieve a healthier lifestyle. We are veterans of the food and beverage industry who were looking for something better, and we found it by creating Z&O.

Our Science & Technology

Extraction & Purification

Our hemp extract is created using proprietary cold, closed extraction and purification technology. This preserves the plant oils that contain cannabinoids and other beneficial compounds, while removing waxes and chlorophyll.

Purification also ensures there are no heavy metals or pesticides, so our hemp extract meets strict regulatory requirements.

Plant oils and water don’t mix – unless, of course, they are mixed with patent-pending nanotechnology. This science is used to break down hemp oil particles to form nanoparticles (one-millionth of their original size!) so they can be evenly encapsulated in a water molecule cluster, which can in-turn be infused easily into water.

Reducing it to such small nanoparticles creates a more stable emulsion – meaning our hemp extract stays bonded to the water molecules, so the oil and water don’t separate, which can be a problem with some hemp products. By staying attached to water, up to 90% of the hemp extract is able to be absorbed into the bloodstream, rather than being filtered out by the body.

Third-Party Lab Tested

We don’t just say our products are rich in cannabinoids. We have the third-party testing data to prove it. Third-party testing guarantees that our products contain the amount of hemp extract we claim, so you can be sure you’re receiving the full benefit.

​​​​​​​Farming & Sustainability

Our Plants
Our Plants

We buy only from U.S. suppliers with naturally developed strains of industrial hemp, legalized by the Farm Bill of 2018. Our suppliers use proprietary plant strains and state-of-the-art cloning practices to ensure that their plants are rich in beneficial cannabinoids yet low in THC.
Our Farms
Our Farms

All of our hemp is grown in the U.S.A. with organic farming methods. Our suppliers’ farms are free of synthetic pesticides and chemicals, and follow best-in-class sustainability and transparency practices.
