What does “Cheeba” mean?

Common term for cannabis, traditionally in flower form. Not to be confused with the actor and martial artist Sonny Chiba, or the city in Japan. It derives from the Spanish “Chiva,” the term for heroin, but Brazillian stoners soon adapted it as slang for weed. Cheeba Chews, a brand of potent, weed-infused taffy available in Colorado, California, Nevada, and Oklahoma were named after this popular term.

Example usage:

“I managed to get a great deal on some cheeba today, so let's burn one tonight.”
