You took care of your problem when you lowered the temps. The buds were loose because they were trying to keep themselves cool. 95 degree temps will give you loose buds every time. :)

Sativas some times just take longer to build full buds. 16+ weeks of flower especially outdoor or cfl grows make kill buds.

Light intensity plays a big part in getting tight nugs. Excess heat will cause fluffy buds as well. This is due to them trying their best to stay cool so they stay fluffy. A proper feeding / watering schedule is really important for tight nugs. Last but not least is very good air flow. Without going into massive detail the big 4 are very important to dial in. Once you do you will have great smoke and dense buds.

what lamp are you veging under? a lack of blue spectrum light will cause exactly what you describe, so if you're running the HPS for both stages, then that's your problem :peace:
