Brady Bell – Chief Executive Officer
Brady Bell has been in the industry for nearly a decade . Brady was working in software sales making a very comfortable salary when he left that behind to start working in the industry as a trimmer for $10 an hour. He quickly worked his way up through the ranks and went on to manage and run many successful dispensaries before redirecting his focus to CBD in 2014. Brady is a visionary, a great leader, and an even better father. Brady’s passion for cannabis and hemp began when he found greater relief from his Tourette Syndrome using cannabis than the many pharmaceuticals he would have been prescribed throughout his life. His passion for the industry is unparalleled by most. Brady believes in always doing the right thing and always looking out for the customer. The rest will take care of itself.

Brandon Nhean – Shipping and Fulfillment
Born in Denver, Colorado, Brandon has always held a firm belief in finding newer, alternative approaches towards bettering one’s livelihood. He applied this ideology towards his studies in psychology and criminal justice at the University of Northern Colorado with the original intention of integrating more rehabilitative approaches to combat prison overcrowding within the current criminal justice system. After exploring various career paths, he found a niche within the CBD industry at Pure Spectrum largely due to the fact that it encapsulated the idea of providing a better, more natural approach to improving lives. Though still new to the industry, Brandon hopes to continue to learn and grow alongside Pure Spectrum so that its benefits can be widely accessible to those from all walks of life.
