Importing 13_8 Greengenes database for training classifier


I have a general question about importing the 13_8 Greengenes database into QIIME2 in order to train it as a classifier. I am using QIIME2 version 2019.1 on VirtualBox on a Mac.
I clicked the link from the data resources page, and the resulting files are in my downloads as gg_13_8_otus.tar.gz and gg_3_8_otus.tar.gz.cpgz
My question is what is the import command to import the database into QIIME? I’ve looked around the forum and at the training classifier/importing data pages, but I can’t figure out the semantic type/correct input path for these files.

Thank you very much!

unzip the first one, and navigate on through to find the sequences you want (in the rep-seqs directory) and the matching taxonomy (in taxonomy)
