thujone
alcohol

Traditional absinthe is made of anise, fennel and wormwood (a plant), and various recipes add other herbs and flowers to the mix. The anise, fennel and wormwood are soaked in alcohol, and the mixture is then distilled. Wormwood contains Thujone - a potentially hallucinogenic compound - so does that mean absinthe is an hallucinogen? Find out more in this article from How Stuff Works.
