From Latin cannabis 'hemp', from Ancient Greek κάνναβις (kánnabis). The term was claimed to ultimately be from Scythian by Herodotus (compare Kurdish kinif, Ossetian gän). It may be a compound of Proto-Finno-Ugric *kéne (hemp) (compare Estonian kena, Lapp kèdž', Udmurt kenem) and *piš (to burn; nettle) (compare Komi/Udmurt pyš, Khanty piš) but may also be connected to Assyrian qunnabu 'cannabis'. This word wandered widely into Semitic, Baltic, Slavic and Germanic (as *hanapiz). See hemp.
