This is a very important concept to understand. The ratio is just a way to state the proportions of the different components of a product. For example, if you were baking a cake you might want 2 parts flour and 1 part water, and this can be written as 2:1. If the cake was made for 2 people or 100 people the ratio, 2:1, would always be the same, however the actual amount of flour and water would be vastly different.
In the cannabis world, the ratio for CBD and THC is written the same way. So a 2:1 ratio would be 2 parts CBD and 1 part THC. Again however, the actual amount of each can be vastly different. A product that has 2mg of CBD and 1mg of THC is a 2:1 ratio. But a product that has 200mg of CBD and 100 mg of THC is ALSO a 2:1 ratio product. You obviously will obtain completely different effects from each of those products.
Depending on what you are looking for in a product, it is important to not only be aware of the ratio, but also of the actual amount of the components as well.

I can’t figure out how much of a dropper to take either for 18:1 for cancer reoccurance prevention. I weigh 150 pounds. I guess I cannot use this until I get a ballpark recommendation. Is it a drop or two or an eyedropper full?
