Lewis Capaldi has revealed he "freaked out" and thought he was hearing voices after he first took medically prescribed cannabis oil.
In an Instagram Live session — reported via the Mirror — the Scottish singer admitted that he has struggled since being given the oil to help with his anxiety.
The oil contains THC, which is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, and Capaldi said he had an adverse reaction to it.
"I took the second drop as prescribed and I freaked the f*** out. I don’t do that kind of stuff and I absolutely freaked," said the 25-year-old.

Capaldi added: "I was in my room by myself and I was hearing things. I thought I could hear voices.
“I had to search YouTube videos to find out what to do if you’ve taken too much cannabis oil. It was mad. It was f***ing intense."
The singer said he is also pursuing a healthier diet in order to deal with his anxiety and panic attacks around fame, as well as Tourette's syndrome.
He added: "I am just trying to get the mind and body right. That oil is no joke though. I didn’t know you could get high off it. I felt absolutely nuts."
Capaldi is currently promoting new break-up single Forget Me — his first new release in three years and the first glimpse at his upcoming second album.
The track went straight to the top of the UK Singles Chart and, in an open letter accompanying the release, he confessed to nerves about how people will react.
