The present study deals with the phytochemical examination of Phytochemical profiling and therapeutic importance of Cannabis sativa L., Cannabis indica Land Salvia divinorum L. an important hallucinogenic plant. Qualitative phytochemical analysis of the extracts prepared from seeds showed the presence of alkaloids, Anthraquinones, catechins, coumarins, flavonoids, phenols, quinones, Saponins, steroids, sugar, glycosides, tannins, and xanthoproteins. The FT-IR spectrum confirmed the presence of alkyl methyl, and alcohol, ethers, and estergroup, Carboxylic acid, and anhydrides were also present. The bioactive components of the ethanol extract of Cannabis sativa L., and Salvia divinorum L seeds were investigated using Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS), while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract were matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library.
