Lezley Gibson and husband Mark, both 42, of Alston, Cumbria, are standing trial at Carlisle Crown Court with Marcus Davies, 36, of St Ives, Cambs.
All three deny two charges each of conspiring to supply cannabis.
It is alleged they sent home-made "Canna-Biz" bars by post to help patients cope with the pain of MS.
The jury at Carlisle Crown Court had already been told the trio made no secret of their involvement in the supply of the chocolate bars.
'A big softie'
In police interviews read to the court, Mr Gibson described how the chocolate was made, and how MS sufferers received their packages.
Mrs Gibson's interviews, in which she told police she did not believe she was doing anything wrong, were also read out.
In the police interview she said: "I am just a big softie. I have MS, I know what it is like, we do this to help people, not to line our own pockets."
Earlier, the court heard police seized 33 bags containing the bars from a sorting office last year, which were traced to the defendants.
The trial continues.
