From Latin cannabis ‎(hemp), from Ancient Greek κάνναβις ‎(kánnabis). The term was claimed to ultimately be from Scythian by Herodotus (compare Kurdish kinif, Ossetian гӕн ‎(gæn)). It may be connected to Assyrian [script needed] ‎(qunnabu, an aromatic, perhaps the seed or flower of hemp). This word wandered widely into Semitic, Baltic, Slavic and Germanic (as *hanapiz). See hemp.
