For some reason a'lot of people seem to have problems breaking there bud up. So i thought id write a little something to help.

Feel around(after a while you'll get good at this) for the stem, and break the bud around it. Its easy to do. And break the big bits into smaller more manageable pieces. Next then you have several options.

1:Medicine bottle and scissors.

Directions:Throw your bud in there(works best with lots of bud and a smaller bottle) and chop away. My favorite thing to do is put the cap on with a hole big enough to put the scissor blades in(a bit bigger so you've got some room) and no bud falls out on the odd chance something happens.

2:Normal scissors.

Directions:Find something to cut over. I use a dvd case that's close to completely white. Makes it easier to see your bud. And just put the bud in you hands between your index and thumb and chop while making a twisting motion with your fingers to make it finer.

3:Fingers.

Directions:Just keep pinching the bud off with your fingers its very easy to do. But more time consuming.

4:Grinder

Directions:I love to use grinders. You can pick one up for $15 and it will most likely still work fine. Or you can purchase a Sharpstone hand grinder best that iive heard of.

My favorite is the magic bullet. Its an electric grinder used to ground coffee beans. Works like.. MAGIC!

Enjoy and happy smoking :D

yes definitely take out the stems. it will ruin your grinder, and it will taste bud.
i cant stand stems, just last night i was packing my spoon. and hippi busted dank had a stem at the bottom. so i was fishing through the bowl trying to get it out in pitch darkness. well besides what little help my lighter did.

i guess ill stick it up there to clarify

EDIT: or i would.. if the edit buttom was still there. any ideas guys?

good post but i thought i'd let you know that the magic bullet was actually a multi-purpose use. Not just for coffee beans. ;) lol, if anyones been up late and watched the paid programming they make EVERYTHING in those things. Anything that needs to be chopped, ground up, or mixed goes in the magic bullet.
