We report on the possibilities of measuring charmonia and bottom production with the LHCb experiment. Using reconstructed J/psi decays to mu+ mu-, both the prompt J/psi and b -> J/psi production cross- sections in pp collisions at LHC energies will be determined in the J/ psi eta range 2-5. Due to the very large statistics, this analysis will be possible very early after the LHC start. Other charmonia related measurements will also be discussed, such as that of the J/psi polarization at production or of the production of some of the new X, Y and Z states.
