Bud Losing Smell Turning Greasy Feeling

I have been using the same set up for over 8 years and this has never happened before the last two runs. Around week 3 of flower when they are starting to form flowers, getting sticky and smelling good then almost overnight the smell changes to almost a Vick’s smell and when I pinch some of the popcorn buds instead of my fingers becoming sticky they have a smooth slick feeling. Last run was purple punch and was able to get some of the stickiness and smell back but not like normal. The buds where cover in trichomes and looked super sticky like normal but it wasn’t.
This time the same thing is starting to happen. It’s a different strain this time, (blueberry muffins) They were getting sticky and smelled just like blueberry muffins and now they have a Vick’s smell and are not sticky even though they are starting to get frosty.
Has anyone had this happen? There have been 3 changes. I started using a different silica (earths juice’s god silica) I use pool shock instead of uc roots, I have been for 5 or 6 years. I did start using it at a higher dosage. Also my room temperature has been getting into the mid eighties instead of mid to high 70’s. I have been flushing and going to stop using silica no pool shock at all for a week then go back what I use to use. Also getting my temps lower.

Purple punch from the last run. This was a piece from the bottom that was going in a co2 extractor looks super sticky but it wasn’t.

I like it when my buds feel greasy, thats the goodness to me. hows it smoke?
Very clean and Stoney. The smell change also. I have just never had this happen in 17 years of growing, 8 years in a uc. The heads on the trichomes seem smaller also.
