Ganja is another name for marijuana. The word is ofter times associated with the west indies, but the truth is that it originated in India.

ORIGIN: The word Ganja actually comes from the word Ganges, referring to the Ganges River, which is a river in India where Cannabis Indica grew naturally. Cannabis indica was brought to the west indies, and is therefore referred to as Ganga.

For those who didn't know.

The East and West Indian word for marijuana from the Hindi language...The Indica strain of cannabis has the highest percentage of THC than any other strain grown...The word is used in the West Indies because of the East Indian influence from culptivating and smoking the buds of the plant...Ganja was brought by the East Indian slaves to the Carribean and then spread all over the world from there, but Indica Ganja originated in India.
