The diagnosis of “unspecified cannabis-related disorder” applies when a person has symptoms characteristic of a cannabis-related disorder that cause significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. However, the symptoms do not meet the full criteria for any specific cannabis-related disorder or any of the disorders in the substance-related and addictive disorders diagnostic class.
