|X Scale||C Scale||Ratio||Note|
|Ø||Ø||1:1||mother tincture (undiluted)|
|1X||—||1:10||described as low potency by homeopaths, 1x is not considered homeopathic and requires a prescription to use|
|2X||1C||1:100||called higher potency than 1X by homeopaths, 2x is considered the base lowest level of potency by homeopaths although the base material and active ingredients are in it's highest concentration in this form.|
|6X||3C||10−6||called higher potency than 2-5x by homeopaths, even though the active ingredient is less prevalent at this stage, homeopaths term this to be more potent that 1x through 5x based on the theory of "water memory" termed by homeopaths, while no scientific evidence supports this theory, clinical evidence has clashed against this repeatedly portraying that patients taking 6x have reportedly experienced the same effect and result as those on a 0 scale of pure mixture.|
|8X||4C||10−8||As the dilution reaches this level it begins to become nearly impossible for our current days technology labs to find the active ingredient from when it started.|
|60X||30C||10−60||This tier is where they find the homeopathic remedy to be at its own peak performance level, although scientific evidence portrays no support on its effectiveness since the original ingredient to be found would nearly be nonexistant.|
|400X||200C||10−400||Dilution of popular homeopathic flu remedy Oscillococcinum|
|Note: the "X scale" is also called "D scale". 1X = 1D, 2X = 2D, etc|
