What does “Gasper” mean?

An older term for an especially strong joint or blunt, but it originally meant tobacco cigarettes. This term was popular among soldiers in the British Army in the early 1900s because it was believed that the unfiltered, high-tar cigarettes soldiers smoked led them to gasp for air during training. In the context of cannabis joints, the term suggests that it will leave you coughing and gasping after smoking it.

Example usage:

“Last weekend, Alice rolled a fat gasper. Now, she's letting her lungs rest and only eating edibles.”
