The Scynce Raging Kush LED grow light has always been one of the best LED grow lights for cannabis. Now Scynce has released the improved Raging Kush 2.0 which covers a 4×4 foot or 5×5 foot grow space.
The first Scynce Raging Kush grow light was able to compete well with quantum board style grow lights even though it was released before new quantum board grow light technology went mainstream. And I think the Raging Kush 2.0 (also known as the Raging Kush Alpha) will remain one of the best LED grow lights for 4×4 and 5×5 foot grow spaces for a long time.
The reason is because it has all the features you could want or need in an LED grow light, and it’s been improved from the first generation. Take a look at the features below.
Raging Kush 2.0 Grow Light Features:
Fully Customizable Light Spectrum
The fully customizable light spectrum is a rare feature that’s only offered on premium LED grow lights. This feature allows you to change the color of light that’s emitted from the LEDs to suit any stage of cannabis plant growth.
For example, if you want to use the Raging Kush Alpha in your veg tent, you can turn the spectrum to blue and white only.
The Raging Kush 2.0 grow light provides 475 watts of power for any color combination from 2700 kelvin to 6500 kelvin, with an additional 175 watts of pure reds available at any time. That includes the beneficial infrared wavelength as well!
Remote Control Light Settings via Theia Phone App
The Android or iOS Theia app allows you to control several aspects of the Raging Kush 2.0 light usage.
All of the spectrum tuning can be done easily, and custom spectrum mixes can be saved for re-use. You can also use the Theia app to dim the light intensity, and schedule the running time.
This allows for seamless grow light use without worrying about broken plastic outlet timers causing your grow light mess up your light cycle in the middle of flowering, which could be catastrophic.
Daisy Chain for Large or Commercial Applications:
Connect multiple Raging Kush 2.0 grow lights and manage them from the Theia app, making your large scale grow easy to operate from the convenience of your mobile device!
Patented 120-degree Conic LED Lens
The patented 120-degree conic LED lenses allows you to hang your Scynce Raging Kush Alpha incredibly close to the surface of your plants without burning or bleaching.
These lenses also create an unbeatable, strong, and uniform light spread across the entire 4×4 foot to 5×5 foot canopy. I haven’t personally seen another LED grow light with such strong uniform coverage.
This means your plants can grow huge colas on every side and edge of the grow tent instead of only towards the center like with weaker grow lights. The Raging Kush 2.0 is truly one of the best LED grow light options available for growing cannabis.
You’ll see in the image below what I mean…
Raging Kush Alpha Coverage Area:
As previously mentioned, the Raging Kush 2.0 will flower cannabis in a 4×4 to 5×5 foot grow space with ease. In fact, the image above shows the intensity at all corners of a 4×4 foot grow tent is still at 1000 micromoles of PPFD (light intensity), which is the most impressive light spread I’ve seen on any grow light.
The difference with the Raging Kush Alpha is that the light spread stays strong at every edge of the grow space, whereas with other grow lights the intensity would not be 1000 micromoles at the edge – it would maybe be around 400 micromoles of PPFD, meaning any bud sites on the edge will not grow as large as the buds in the center of the grow tent.
In fact, I think the Raging Kush 2.0 can light a larger space than the 4×4 foot measured above. With PPFD still at 1000 on the edges, you can likely expand the grow space another foot or so to 5×5 or 5.5 x 5.5 feet.

Raging Kush 2.0 Hang Height Above Plants:
- Seedlings: 21 inches @ full power; Or 6-9 inches @ 25% power
- Veg: 15 inches @ full power; Or 6-9 inches @ 50-60% power
- Flowering: 6-9 inches @ full power
Scynce recommends a 6 to 9 inch hang height for the Raging Kush 2.0. That hang height would provide you the intensity levels seen in the image above.
That strength is good for flowering, but if you want to veg it’ll be too strong so you need to raise the light 6 inches, or dim the light down to 50%. Same thing for seedlings – you can raise the light to 21 inches at full power, or dim the light to 25% and keep it hanging at 6-9 inches.
Remember if you want a larger grow area you may want to raise the light a little bit so it spreads further outward. In that case, keep in mind the light will weaken 75% for every 12 inches of height you add to the present hang height.
Scynce Raging Kush Alpha Yield:
Check out some of the yields growers are getting with the Raging Kush. Remember light isn’t the only factor affecting yield, but I know people still like to see yield results, so here are a few:
Raging Kush 2.0 vs Other Grow Lights:
What sets the Raging Kush Alpha apart from other grow lights are the customizable spectrum and the uniform light spread. With that said there are a couple comparable grow lights available, but in my opinion they still won’t be as good as the Raging Kush 2.0.
Raging Kush 2.0 vs Amare Solar Eclipse:
The difference is that the Amare Solar Eclipse uses less wattage (500 watts) and covers a slightly smaller area. But where the Raging Kush really pulls away from the Amare is it doesn’t use special lenses to spread the light uniformly.
So it’s likely you’ll have a big hot spot under the center of the Amare Solar Eclipse grow light, and weaker coverage at the edges. That also means you’ll need to hang the Amare grow light much higher than the Raging Kush.
Raging Kush 2.0 vs California Lightworks SolarSystem:
The California Lightworks Solarsystem grow lights are similar in wattage, coverage, and customizable spectrum. But the California Lightworks can’t compete well with the Scynce Raging Kush 2.0.
The spectrum offered on the CLW grow light is only red and blue, not full red, blue, white + IR like the Raging Kush 2.0. California Lightworks grow lights are also priced a bit higher than the Raging Kush.
Scynce Raging Kush vs HLG:
The Raging Kush 2.0 is only similar to the HLG 600 or HLG 650R in coverage area. My opinion on these two grow lights is that there’s value in paying a little extra for the customizable spectrum and remote control options that are available on the Raging Kush, so long as you don’t mind paying extra.
But if you’re looking for coverage and spectrum comparison, I think the HLG 650R is a good comparison if you don’t want a customizable spectrum. You won’t be able to hang it as close, but you can go with the HLG 600 if you need a similar vertical growing model.
