Hey there! Say hello to Zach Gavin, the freshest face to join our Juniper Cannabis Athlete crew. Originally from Yakima, Washington, Zach now calls Belgrade, Montana home sweet home. His life reads like a love letter to the great outdoors, with snow sports and fly-fishing woven into the fabric of his daily adventures. His motto for the upcoming 2024 Winter Season? "Ride Fast, Take Chances & Enjoy the process."

How it started.

Zach's love affair with snowboarding started early, at the ripe old age of five. Though he briefly dabbled in skiing, he quickly realized that shredding sideways was more his speed. Growing up near White Pass Ski Resort in Yakima, Washington, Zach wasted no time in carving out a name for himself on the slopes. What began as a childhood obsession with snow soon blossomed into a lifelong passion.

Now, as part of the Juniper Cannabis Athlete squad, Zach is bringing some serious energy to his favorite sport. With the 2024 winter season on the horizon, he's pumped to live out his motto to the fullest. But for Zach, it's not just about chasing thrills; it's about soaking up every moment in the Montanan mountains, spreading stoke with his crew, and keeping the snowboarding spirit alive for generations to come.

Zach's must-have gear for a weekend on the slopes.

When it comes to gear, Zach's got some unique essentials that speak to his dual passions. Whether he's tearing up the mountain or casting a line in the river, you'll find him armed with his trusty Trout Whistle and Fast Wax. And of course, he's not shy about sharing his love for Juniper Cannabis products, like the Bevvy line, which keeps him buzzing from sunrise to sunset.

Speaking of Juniper Cannabis, Zach's not just a fan of their products; he's an advocate for locally grown goodness. His top strains? Unicorn Poop and Crater Lake, each with their own unique flavor profiles and effects. And for post-ride recovery, Zach swears by Juniper's 1:1 THC:CBD Salve, a game-changer for soothing those tired muscles.

The Goods

Unicorn Poop Strain

Ah, Unicorn Poop—the stuff of legends! This signature strain is famous for its well-rounded high, perfect for any occasion. Picture this: a delightful blend of sweet lemon and cedar, with just a hint of pepper and garlic. Sounds intriguing, right? This magical mix comes from crossing Sophisticated Lady and GMO Cookies, resulting in a captivating concoction that'll have you feeling giggly and tingly in no time. With prominent terpenes like Limonene, Caryophyllene, and Myrcene, Unicorn Poop isn't just any strain—it's an experience.

Crater Lake Strain

Dive into the vibrant world of Crater Lake, where energy, euphoria, and focus work in perfect harmony. Imagine the scent of rose petals dancing with bright lemongrass, all underscored by earthy forest tones. This well-balanced 60/40 sativa/indica blend is like a breath of fresh air, lifting your spirits without weighing you down. Known for its uplifting and creative vibes, Crater Lake gently fades over time, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready for whatever comes your way.

1:1 THC:CBD Salve

Juniper's Full Spectrum Cannabis Salve—a game-changer for post-snowboarding recovery. Crafted with care in Bozeman, this salve combines the power of THC and CBD for ultimate muscle relaxation and overall body recovery. With a perfect balance of 200mg of THC and 200mg of CBD, it's a soothing balm for pain and inflammation that won't leave you feeling high. Plus, by interacting with CB2 receptors in your skin, it may offer additional skin health benefits. It's not just a salve; it's a whole-body experience.

What's next for Zach in Winter 2024?

For Zach, snowboarding isn't just about the adrenaline rush—it's about building community. He sees it as a chance to bring people together, whether they're hitting the slopes or casting lines in the river. And with events like the Nate Chute Banked Slalom, Zach's not just racing; he's raising awareness and support for mental wellness in his community. Zach's winter plans are jam-packed with adventures, from shredding slopes in Mount Batchelor, Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Palisades Tahoe, to hitting up local events like the Smash Life Banked Slalom at Lost Trail & Nate Chute Banked Slalom in Whitefish, MT.

And after the snow melts? You'll find him trading his snowboard for a fishing rod & trout whistle, ready to tackle whatever adventures come his way.

So here's to welcoming Zach Gavin onto the Juniper Cannabis Athlete Team: a bank slalom snowboarding sensation, a community builder, and the newest member of the Juniper Cannabis Athlete team.
