Cannabis pipes get filled with resin and tar over time which can be cancerous and dangerous for the lungs over time for users. As well as the accumulated tar and resin constraints airflow which makes it difficult for users to medicate. It is also unhygienic.

Current solutions involve using harmful chemicals and require the user to do manual work to get their pipes into usable condition. Washee does all the work using only water.

Washee is a home appliance where you can put your cannabis pipes inside, add water, run the “washee” cleaning cycle and your pipes look as good as new in minutes. Current solutions require steeping for long hours and are inefficient.
