This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you tried going to the plugins page while on the individual site and looking at which ones are active? – Tom J Nowell Aug 10 '13 at 20:41

Looks like get_option('active_plugins) does the trick. Also, this question has already been answered here, sorry for the duplicate:

How to Check If A Plugin Is Enabled Through API?
