This brief questionnaire will evaluate whether you may have a cannabis dependency when consumed for non-medical purposes (i.e. not prescribed by a doctor). These questions are based on the diagnostic criteria of the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” for cannabis use disorder.

*Note: These questionnaires are not meant to provide an official diagnosis of cannabis addiction or dependency, cannabis use disorder or any other disorder. If you have a question about potentially problematic cannabis use, either now or in the future, please discuss the issue with your doctor or healthcare professional. Additionally, your answers are confidential and fully anonymous.

Do you often use cannabis in larger amounts or for longer than you're meant to?
Do you frequently find that you need more to get the effect than you did in the past?
Do you spend a great deal of time on activities to find, use, or recover from your use of cannabis?
Have you experienced an inability to cut down or stop your cannabis use when wanting to do so?
Have you ever found yourself obsessing over when you’ll get to use cannabis again?
Is using cannabis beginning to have a negative impact on you at work, home, or at school?
Have you stopped enjoyable activities due to your cannabis use?
Have you been arrested or engaged in dangerous or reckless behaviour under the influence of cannabis?
Have you had social or relationship issues due to the effects of cannabis use and kept using it anyway?
Do you have medical issues that are linked to your use of cannabis, but you continue to use in spite of them?
When trying to quit, have you experienced withdrawal symptoms (e.g. appetite loss, restlessness, depression, irritability, anxiety, sleep problems, headache, chills, tremors, fever, sweating, or abdominal pain) and think cannabis is the only way to cope with these symptoms?
