Salvinorin A drug molecule. Molecular model of Salvinorin A, a psychoactive drug found in high concentrations in the leaves of Diviner's Sage (Salvia divinorum). A psychoactive drug is a chemical that acts on the central nervous system (CNS) to alter brain function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness and behaviour. It is the most potent naturally-occurring psychoactive compound known. It has long used by the Mazatec shamans of Oaxaca, Mexico but is currently under consideration to be made illegal in the United States. Atoms are colour-coded: carbon (grey), hydrogen (white) and oxygen (red).
