What does “Kaya” mean?

A Jamaican slang term for cannabis that was originally popularized by reggae legend Bob Marley. Marley frequently referred to cannabis as Kaya in his music and even released an album of the same name. The etymology of the term is unknown, but it seems to be related to the Caribbean English word “kayakiit,” which is a medicinal herb.

Example usage:

“Let's get together and smoke some Kaya tonight.”
