All types of hashish

Legend has it that the word 'hashish' comes from a group of devout Ismailites, who allegedly used hashish. According to this legend, the translation of 'hashish' should be 'murderer'. Why? It is said that the famous 'Old Man of the Mountain' took future assassins to a heavenly garden, where he gave them an infusion of hashish. While they were inebriated, he offered them all kinds of delicacies. He told them that they could only return to the garden as a reward if they followed his orders and carried out accurate and precise murders. This legend does not really enjoy much consensus among historians. However, it is undoubtedly full of fascination.
