|English term or phrase: KAIF|
|how do you spell the word |
['keif, or kaif] that is what drug addicts feel when they take drugs, like euphoria
Give me the spelling please...

As for slang expressions, have a look at

Description and source: Derived from the \"Cannabis Sativa\" plant. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most active cannabinoid in marijuana.

Abuse potential: **High**; habituation, but not physical addiction.

Effect at usual levels: Euphoria, sedation, temporal distortion, sexual arousal. Studies show functional impairment for 4-6 hours and possibly as long as 24 hours after a **single \"high.\" **

keif, keyf, kaif, kif, Kiif, Qif
history of Persian mysticism, where it has traditionally been used not as a stimulant but as a spiritual soporific, producing a quiescence of the soul which is known as **keyf** or **kaif**, which translates as intoxication, carouse or placid enjoyment...\"
When I speak of drug addiction I do not refer to **keif**, marijuana or any preparation of hashish, mescaline, Bannistria caapi, LSD6, Sacred Mushrooms or any other drug of the hallucinogen group...
Qif: (neologism) hashish. (The actual arabic is **Kiif**)
