my weed doesn’t smell

Buds not retaining smell! Help!

KALEPONI

Hi folks, so my harvest has wielded some great looking, dense and hairy buds.. but I seem to have ONE big problem.. No smell. I mean they smell, but its faint, and not so much like marijuana.. more like.. tea?
If I give them a slight squeeze, Ill get that pungent aroma that Im looking for, but it doesnt last, and I dont want to go thru my entire harvest and squeeze each nug to get that stank.. What can I do??

Ill list my drying conditions so theres less questions:

I have a big cabinet i built out of plywood and some mohagony quarter inch side panels. (pic below) Then I have botanical drying nets I found at a hardware store that hang inside and i place the manicured buds on those nets. It closes up and theres a gap at the bottom and top for air circulation. I have hygrometer or whatever that tells me the temp and humidity, which is always around 65 degrees F and about 50% humidity.. which is what I heard are ideal conditions for drying, yet I still have these unstinky buds! What the heck!? Any ideas? I cure too, in glass airtight jars. Im so confused.

So the first pic is my drying cabinet, 50% humidity pretty regularly, and anywhere from 60 to 70 degrees F on average.

The second pic is the buds Ive harvested and dried in that cabinet. The frosty white bud in the front is Nebula, and the darker amber bud in the back is Super Lemon Haze. Both smoke great and taste nice.. but they both lack in smell a lot. Hardly any odor, and that bugs me.
