The ancient sanskrit name for the now called ganja, which is a term used for Marijuana.

The plant was first called Ganjika which means "belonging to the ganges(river)".

It grew naturally along the ganges river and its smell attracted royals.

Get the Ganjika mug.
what i heard actually is that ganges means tension, and that gangica means release of tension, therefore the name ganja is broken translation used by rastas in the west indes as a bad translation of the original term, which was gangika, meaning release of tension. This is what i was told, though i'm having trouble finding the proof for this.
My body and mind are tense like this river, let me relieve my tension with ganjika
