Soje is the only Native American tribally owned-and-operated hemp cigarette brand in the United States.
Our name comes from the Ioway name for “smoke”: Soje (pronounced Soje). Our cigarettes allow for a longer draw or pull, which allows our customers to enjoy our good smoke longer than traditional tobacco cigarettes.
Our land is one of our most valuable and sacred resources.
Soje approaches its cultivation of hemp and other herbs used in our blends the same way we approach daily life. We give thanks for the land we’ve been charged to be over. Being good stewards of our land means we utilize our soil and its ecosystem to tend to our crops in such a way that we make it richer instead of stripping it of its contents by the time we reap our harvest.
Tribal Values of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska People
at Soje is to offer the world’s first Native American hemp cigarette made with native american smoking herbs, 100% natural materials, and a guarantee that 100% of our revenues go directly back to native american communities so that we can achieve our mission.
All while holding true to our 3 core values:
To support Native American communities
To honor the land through regenerative farming practices
To only use natural materials in everything we produce
Aside from our vision and mission, our customers are the heart of our brand.
We know that our loyal customers seek us out because they are looking for something they want, but can’t find with the level of integrity we provide. Soje intentionally creates a healthier alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. In fact, our hemp cigarettes are often used to aid in tobacco cessation specifically. Whether you are looking for the ritual of smoking a joint without the legal ramifications, seeking the benefits of CBD without the mental high that comes along with imbibing THC-rich products, or are quitting tobacco cigarettes and need a healthier alternative, you are sure to enjoy our products.
