Kyra Horvath, the co-founder and master grower of Pineapple Buds Inc., is a standout figure in the world of boutique cannabis cultivation. A University of Calgary alumna with a BA in Sociology and a minor in Anthropology, Kyra dedicated herself to the cannabis market post-graduation, focusing on quality assurance and customer engagement alongside her partner, Laine Keyes. In 2020, they established Pineapple Buds, a micro-cultivation facility in Oliver, BC, specializing in deep-water cultivation and unique genetics.

Pineapple Buds stands out in the cannabis industry not just for its cultivation methods but also for its unique origin story. The brand was conceived following a trip to Hawaii’s Dole Pineapple Plantation, where Kyra was inspired by the plantation’s allure. She envisioned creating a cannabis brand that captured the same excitement and uniqueness. Today, Pineapple Buds operates out of a 10,000-square-foot facility, combining generational and innovative horticulture techniques to craft a select range of niche, high-quality sativa strains and hybrids, including the popular Pineapple Party and Hawaiian Pineapple. Under Kyra’s leadership, Pineapple Buds continues to push the boundaries of cannabis cultivation, creating a distinguished legacy within the BC cannabis community.

Meet Robin, the master grower at High Mountain Organics, whose life story is as rich and organic as her farming practices. Raised in Yalakom Valley, a mountainous community near Lillooet, BC, Robin’s childhood was an immersion in nature. Homeschooling allowed her to deeply connect with her environment, tending to gardens and farm animals and mastering organic farming techniques, especially for cannabis.

Her passion for cannabis, rooted in a commitment to organic cultivation, has flourished over the years. Today, Robin lives on a self-sufficient ranch with her family and friends, where they embrace regenerative farming to produce their food and cannabis.

Robin’s pioneering spirit shone through in 2013 when she became the first in her community to apply for a cannabis cultivation license under Canada’s MMAR program. Since then, she has maintained licenses through MMPR, ACMPR, and now holds a Micro Cultivation and Micro Processing license with High Mountain Organics.
