You have accidently duplicated the mesh and the overlap is causing the shading issues.

Steps to fix:

  1. Select an element of the overlapping object.
  2. Select linked (Ctrl L)
  3. Delete all verts. (X)

Also note: You need more mesh resolution to display high frequency displacement add a subdivision surface modifier and increase subdivision levels as needed to fix this.

  • $\begingroup$ By "shading issue" I am referring to the dark spots that result from the displacement. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ first it is for other people to know "this is the right answer" so they don't waste time and get quick result instead of reading all the answers. second it is a way to say "thank you" for helping and so the one who answers gets some reputation points and in the long run more "power" and possibilities here (like writing comments, down and upvoting, statistics etc) $\endgroup$
