What is an Entheogen?

Somebody asked me what an Entheogen is so i figured i would define it and give some examples for a quick blog today since i didnt have time to do something larger.

An Entheogen ("creates god within," en εν- "in, within," theo θεος- "god, divine," -gen γενος "creates, generates"), in the strict sense, is a psychoactive substance used in a religious, shamanic or spiritual context

Illegals - Cannibus, LSD, Psilocybin Mushrooms, MDMA (basically any illegal drug)
Legals - Salvia, Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms, Kraton, Kavva, Wild Dagga (And Hundreds More)

Pretty much saying anything that alters your state is essentially Entheogenic even alcohol

Sorry for the small post today I had a few matters to attend to today but i will make it up later :)
