This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
C = centesimal
LM = 50 millessimal

These terms refer to how the remedy is made during the potentization process. C potencies are diluted 1 part in 100, LM potencies are diluted 1 part in 50,000. This does not affect their strength (ability to cure disease) but affects their size (ability to cause aggravation). However this alteration does allow them to be used more frequently than C potencies which in turn gives them more scope to cure many advanced cases of disease.

You can go to this website to read an article by David Little on the potency scales and the use of LMs.
