1. Start by de-stemming the buds and break them down into smaller pieces - do not break things down completely, but it will serve you well to not place large and dense nugs into the container cup.
2. Fill the cup about 30%. Do not put more than as you can always add more if needed. Once properly filled, attach to the rest grinder by screwing the grinder onto the top of the container cup. Make sure to hold firmly and avoid spilling the herbs - the cup should be upright with the open top facing upwards.
3. When the two parts are screwed in together press the power button and slowly turn the grinder upright. As this happens, the herbs will fall towards the spinning blades and become chopped. Continue this action back and forth until the desired level of ground has been reached.
4. Remember, carefully unscrew the plastic container to avoid any mishaps. Place the container down on a flat, secure surface and enjoy!
