The Face of Careers in Cannabis

Jacob Petersmark is the mind behind the operations of Michigan's No. 1 cannabis staffing company, The United Green. Petersmark's call to cannabis stemmed from watching several of his family members battle cancer. During that time, he saw firsthand the benefits cannabis provided to his mother and grandmother during treatment. The result was a call to action for Petersmark to increase awareness surrounding the many medicinal benefits cannabis has to offer. This eventually led to the establishment of The United Green — a cannabis-specific staffing agency focused on providing more health options to people across the United States.

Today, Petersmark's continued belief in the healing effects of CBD and THC serves as the foundation for The United Green. His passion for promoting the benefits of cannabis is seen in the continued successes of The United Green, which recently surpassed its 3,000th hire.

With his company ranking in the top 1 percent of cannabis staffing agencies nationwide, the Michigan State Broad College of Business graduate is a great example of a young business professional fueled by a passion for helping others.
