Kef \keyf\ , noun;
1. A state of drowsy contentment
2. Also keef, a substance, especially a smoking preparation of hemp leaves, used to produce this state

This word is first attested in 1808 from Arabic kaif, which means "well-being, good-humor," specifically in regards to the state of dreamy intoxication resulting from smoking cannabis.
