Police have warned parents about a dangerous new trend involving vaping that has already left one boy debilitated.
It is believed the teenage boy vaped a mixture of CBD and THC oil which has been said to cause a variety of nasty side effects.
Police officers say they have already seized a large quantity of the dull, yellow liquid which is being sold in spot bottles as they warn parents and young people about the risks.
Teesside Live says the teenager was at home at the time and thankfully was able to get help when he became unwell.
CBD and THC are both derived from the same cannabis plant.
However, THC is associated with the high feeling or psychoactive effects, while CBD is more well known for its health benefits.
A spokeswoman for Durham Constabulary said: “Officers particularly want to warn any young people who may be offered or use the liquid, especially in remote areas around Barnard Castle and Teesdale.
“A large quantity of the dull yellow liquid – being sold in sport bottles and distributed in small, unlabelled bottles – has already been seized by police.
“Remember, it is illegal to vape if you are under 18.”
Anyone who sees or is offered anything that matches the liquid’s description, call 101 or 999 in an emergency.
