What does “Bhang” mean?

A traditional Indian preparation of cannabis that is often made into intoxicating food and drink. Bhang is culturally significant to Hindu spiritual culture, and it is an important part of the Holi festival when bhang-laden chutneys and lassis are sold in celebration. It also has a place in the medicinal culture of India, as it's believed to assist with digestion and sleep. Because of this, cannabis is legal but regulated in India and people can purchase bhang at government-licensed shops.

Example usage:

“Drinks made with bhang are pretty good as long as they're sweetened enough.”
